Hawk's Mascot

ATLANTA (AP)—The Hawks’ real-life mascot got a little flying time during the playoffs.

“Spirit,” an actual hawk that flies down from the rafters during the pre-game introductions, decided to hang around for the start of Game 2 against the Miami Heat on Wednesday night.

The bird was perched atop the scoreboard at tipoff, refusing to go to his handler. Then he swooped around the arena while the game was going on, landing on a railing in the lower deck before he settled on the top of the basket at the Hawks end of the court.

When the players spotted the bird, they refused to go on. The game was halted with 8:28 remaining in the first quarter until the handler finally arrived, luring Spirit to his arm and carrying him out of the arena to cheers from the crowd—and several players.

One person Band




Music aficionados rejoice. The idea of having only 1 device that combines multiple instruments, track recording, equalizer, sound editing, Internet connectivity, and a touchscreen interface all into one compact package is drool worthy. The Vivace makes it all possible. Information is scarce on how the interface works but I have no doubt up-and-coming artists like FrankMusik and Bjork could do a lot with such a device.

Best Friends turn Strangers

During my wonderful 24 years of life, I have experienced some interesting times.  Most of those times are often spent with friends and family.  Recently I was listening to some music while cleaning my room, (my normal routine for cleaning, bumping music) and heard the line "Best friends turned strangers" from Nas in the song The Message.  It really got me thinking, wow that is so true, there are just a few people, (probably more) that I once considered a good friend of mine.  And in the past never had the thought cross my mind that, we wouldn't be in contact anymore, at all..  Some of the relationships were juvenile for sure, like elementary friends, and middle school, of course that make sense contacts were lost.  But there are a few that you rolled with that the relationships went their different ways.  It is just crazy how people change through life, their thoughts and morals they once had, are all gone and out the window.  I would agree, that I have changed and grown up in many ways, but my morals and thoughts are for the most part the same.  Of course I am not the same kid from back in the day playing football in the neighborhood streets, but what I believed back then I still believe today.  Just blows my mind how people's character change, this life is crazy.  Keep your head.

Sweatshirt Dinner Party




I was recently in the studio in Portland with my boy Jake aka Kid Espi, it was real cool to see him in action, mastering his craft.  I have had the benefit of being around him for quite sometime, and have seen his music evolve and grow into what it is today, he has come along ways.  As a good friend of mine I can honestly say he has surprised me over the years, and I am very proud of him.  While in the studio he bumped the joint "Pass that Cup" he has with Pigeon John, and man that is the joint, I can't stop singing the hook.  Look out for his next EP titled "Sweatshirt Dinner Party" it will be available on Itunes, and through his website (link).  I am trying to get him to leak that track "Pass that Cup" on Doodle Bird.  
Check out the music and let him know you heard about him via Doodle Bird.

Canadian Filmmaker Rocks LED light.

Now here’s a story of turning a lemon into lemonade if I ever heard one. After losing his eye in an unfortunate gun accident at age 11, Filmmaker Rob Spence aspired to completely transform his circumstances. Ultimately intending to install a video camera into the prosthetic eye to “explore privacy and surveillance issues, the LED was essentially just to tests the waters. Now hailed the “Eyeborg”, he has begun collaborating with his ocularist and a couple of camera companies to make his dream, a reality.

Tumblr.

I have had problems for a while now uploading just audio files. I did some searching on the net, and there is an explanation on uploading audio, but it has to be attached to a picture. It gave this long drawn out recipe on how to make it in windows movie maker. I just want to upload a audio file, and have it be played right of the blog page! I follow a couple other blogs that are posted with Tumblr, and they have the mp3 player right on the blog page, so I signed up for Tumblr, ( just to see what it is all about) it is very busy, things pop up all over the place, but besides that it is very user friendly, and you can post audio!! So I don't know what to do now, can I bring my whole Doodle Bird Blog over to Tumblr? Or do I have to start over? I really like what I have going on over here, (even with one follower) ha ha. More Posts to come, hopefully some of my photography, if I get to editing anytime soon.

Peace

Trail Blazers.

Ever since I can remember I have been a Portland Trail Blazer fan. I was born one, I mean I stuck by my team through thick and thin, through Rip City to the Jail Blazer era. It feels good, so good to have a team with good morals and awesome upside. So pumped for the playoffs, this year we get the experience, and then next year the league is ours! Oh yeah and I see all you bandwagon jumpers!!! Team Loyalty!

Oregon lawmakers propose law requiring 'honest pint' of beer

SALEM, Ore. -- Some Oregon legislators want the state to help ensure that Oregon's beer drinkers who order a pint get the full 16 ounces during these tough economic times.
The "Honest Pint Act" is aimed at the practice of selling "pints" of beer in glasses, sometimes with thick bottoms, that can't hold the full liquid measure of a pint.

The bill, which got a hearing Friday, would have state health inspectors on their regular rounds inspecting beer glasses for capacity.

The Register-Guard newspaper in Eugene reports the extra review would entail a fee for an amount that has yet to be determined.

But barkeeps who pass the test would be rewarded with a decal, to be displayed on a window or door, proclaiming their establishments to be purveyors of an "honest pint."

nice!! haha
market crashes, lets get drunk!!

Depression

Depression is a crazy thing, one second your good, the next you are ready to jump of the bridge. Man I defiantly have a new understanding for it, so weird but it took the actual experience and pain to understand it (that makes sense). Anyways, they say what doesn't kill you makes you stronger, I guess I am just frustrated with the struggle.

Ducks VS Ducks

Police said three members of the University of Oregon men’s basketball team were detained at gunpoint after shooting BBs at ducks and geese in Alton Baker Park on Monday night. Six Eugene police officers went to the park off Day Island Road at 11:08 p.m., after a passer-by reported seeing men shooting handguns near the park’s main pond, police spokeswoman Melinda Kletzok said.
Upon arrival, officers allegedly saw Cedric Josh Crittle, 19, use a gun to fire BBs toward waterfowl sitting in the pond. When the birds took flight, Crittle continued to fire BBs at them, Kletzok said. Police saw Crittle shoot a total of about 20 BBs at the birds, she said.
As Crittle and two others — identified by police as Michael R. Dunigan and Teondre Javon Williams, both 19 — began to walk away from the pond, an officer approached the men and detained them at gunpoint, Kletzok said.
“That is standard procedure if someone is armed,” Kletzok said of the police response.
Kletzok said as Dunigan put his hands in the air, officers heard the sound of water splashing.
Police later determined that Dunigan had tossed a gun into the pond, she said.
Police recovered a total of three guns believed to have been used by the men. Kletzok described the weapons as “pellet guns that shoot little metal BBs.”
Kletzok said police reports indicated no waterfowl were injured or killed by BBs.
All three men — who police said live in the same west university district apartment complex — were allowed to go home after officers cited them on misdemeanor charges of hunting or using guns in a city park.
All three are scheduled to be arraigned on the charges in Eugene Municipal Court later this month. The base fine for the violation is $155. The men do not face jail time in connection with the incident.

Wow, these dudes are so lucky. Three black men with guns at night?!!
With all theses cops now that are quick to draw, this could of ended worse, thank god.
Lesson learned I hope, go shoot hoops not ducks, dummies.

Hotel in the Air?!



This is the world’s first flying hotel, called the Hotelicopter. It has 18 luxurious rooms and each room is soundproofed. In the room, you have a queen-sized bed, fine linens, a mini-bar, coffee machine, wireless internet access, and all the luxurious appointments you’d expect from a flying five star hotel.
