Now I must admit that I've never really seen what the big deal is about Black Friday. I mean I've never participated in this event and from the clips I've seen on the news it looks really, really crazy. I've seen that people have even gotten into fights over merchandise that they both claimed to grab at the same time. Just take a look at this photo and see if this looks like fun to you. Not me! Now maybe I would feel different if this was held at a CD or DVD store like Amoeba (Oh yeah!) but I really can't think of anything else I want this bad that I would subject myself to this craziness. Now I don't know if people really get deals or not or if it's just low prices on no name stuff. I dunno...... It also seems that Black Friday is getting earlier and earlier. I think I remember it used to start around 6:00AM but I now see stores opening at 3:00AM! What? Now I can tell you that SAXOMAN will be snuggled tightly in his bed at this outrageous time of morning and watching all of the nuts on the news. HAHA!

OK, now I don't have anything against pineapple. As a matter of fact I really like pineapple on it's own. What I don't like is when people put pineapple on things such as Turkey, Ham or worse yet, Pizza. Gross, gross, gross! (at least to me). Now maybe I'm the weired one here but this combination never appealed to me at all, Not at all! So beware this Thanksgiving of someone baking the turkey with pineapple. You've been warned!

The wife and I took a trip to Little Tokyo in Los Angeles yesterday. We were looking for a bookstore but at the same time came across the world renowned Orochon Ramen restaurant as well! WOW! What an unexpected surprise. Now we had seen this restaurant recently on a Man vs Food episode where the host tries to eat the fiery ramen number 2 in 30 minutes. I can tell you that only about 200 of 20,000 have passed this test and are proud enough to have their photos on the wall of fame. Being my first time I tried the Number 4 (Medium) and I can tell you SAXOMAN's lips were a burnin'. My wife and I agree that we could probably kick it up a notch to a number 3 but that's about it, at least for me. The wait was only about 10 minutes and there is seating inside and out. The bowls are huge and the wife and I ended up splitting a bowl with a side of fried rice. Everyone else in the place seem to be eating their own bowls but it looked like too much food for one person. Anyway, I'm anxious to go back and try it again. If you are a spicy food lover or just a lover of Japanese ramen then check it out!

This weeks Latin CD Pick of the Week is Willie Rosario with the cd titled Viva Rosario! A great Salsa cd that will get you up and moving! I used to own this on vinyl way back when and was pleasantly surprised when I was able to find it on cd. Not hip to Willie? Well shame on you! Anyway, check out one of my favorite cuts off this cd titled Anuncio Clasificado/Damelo.
