While looking through a hard-drive I came up on a folder labeled LLV; it's full of totally random and awesome pictures from shoots and what not. I know I won't be able to post them all, but I did find a few that I will be sharing over the next few months. After all what's the point of blogging if not to share with the world. Now, I'm not much of a writer, more of a talker but I'll do my best not to bore you with thousand word blogs. We'll just get right to the pictures.
The first picture here is from a clip we did for Lowlife Mikes truck that he was building at the time at Bio Kustumz. "Project Lowlife" it was dubbed. I'm not even sure which lowlife it was in, but it might have been Borrachos. Don't quote me on that. We went to Bio Kustumz to shoot that day, actually I think Mike was living there at the time. So I went there. We set up early because we knew we were shooting with a girl that day. This girl (I forgot her name) was a friend of Max Fish the owner of Bio Kustumz, which I'm sure you all know; very pretty girl, but had never done anything like this before. So it was an eventful and long evening.
As the time went on, we decided to test the lighting in the shop so we took our "yearbook" picture as we called it. We actually took about ten, but this one really stuck a chord with me. I don't know what we were thinking, I know we weren't drunk because nobody drinks at Max's house.
The last picture as you can see is the "un-named girl" and Max doing some grinding in the background. I always had a camera in hand in those days so I took about sixty shots that day. I even got some shots of her friend "oiling" her up, (maybe I'll post those later) with some real grease from the shop. So rad! Such a tough job but somebody had to do it. That's it for today, but I'll be sure to post some stuff in the upcoming weeks.
And I'm sorry to say that it won't be all minitruck talk in here, this is a blog after all, but for those of you who have been checking out the blog, be sure to leave a comment and say hello, let me know you stopped by. Thanks and see you soon!
I really enjoy running but at least I still have my bike. I'll most likely swith to the bike until I can pick up a treadmill.
Today I ran 2.01-miles, in 31-minutes and lost 357 calories.

I found enough pictures to fill this blog up for a year. Of course I'm not going to dump them all in a day but rather a few here and there. The first pictures I wanted to share today is of me and Mr. John O'Neil. I distinctively remember taking this shot. We were shooting Jamie Jordan's feature for Lowlife Video in front of an old gas station. The picture was taken by Yankee from the

This story takes place at my first SEMA as the Associate Editor at MT magazine. I thought that it wouldn't be business as usual for me since this year I was here on a job. Normally I party until sunrise, crash till two or three in the afternoon and hope to catch an hour or two of SEMA. I figured this year, it would be all work, work, work, go to bed early, do photo shoots, and walk SEMA for eight hours a day. But I should have known better. The partying was insane, hanging with Mike only meant more booze than usual. Good times as always and before you knew it, it was easily passed three or four am. Of course, we had stayed up all night and knew the sun was coming up shortly. We finally decided to stumble back to our hotel room which happens to be the same hotel shared by all the Editors of most of the truck publications including the ones we work with. As we were walking in, we happen to run into the guys from another truck publication. They don't look tired and they've got all their camera gear in hand and ready for work. "Are these guys going to work right now?" Is what I'm thinking. A quick thinking and very witty Mike, quickly tells them "Hey guys, good to see you. Off to do some shoots huh? We'll see you there!" I started cracking up in my head. Off to bed we went (separate beds of course) and it was business as usual for us the rest of the week.
I couldn't believe how crazy we were. We were barely showing up for bed, when the rest of the world was off to work. We still managed to shoot all the trucks we had scheduled to do so, we didn't miss a day of SEMA and still managed to hang out with all our old friends and make some new ones. The times I spent at MT mag were simply amazing and the stories only get better and better.

For now let me tell you that I ran the second day of week two on my way to running a 5K without stopping, and what a day it was. First of all, it's sprinkling outside which made it for an interesting start. I'm not sure if the water slowed me down (I'm sure it didn't) but man, that run was a lot harder today than usually. I found myself having a difficult time breathing and my right leg is burning up. For some reason, I have one muscle that is driving me nuts. I should probably go see a doctor, but who has time for that.
Right now I'm off to RCC to try and see a counselor, which me luck.
Today I ran; 2.03-miles in 30:16. And I burned 360 Calories.

The show was awesome, it probably had about 300 vehicles and a few thousand spectators. I can easily say this is one of the best shows that I love to go too. The weather is awesome and I love hanging with the AZ No Regrets guys.

I know that I lack motivation, and that is what is hurting me the most. Everyday I tell myself the reasons why I need to loose weight and so far they have been working. Making excuses is no longer acceptable.
I will admit however that eating healthy while hanging out at a show with a bunch of my friends is really hard. I don't think I tried hard enough but I will make up for it this coming weekend.
for the record, I ran/walked 2.04-miles in 30 minutes and burned 361 calories.

Today I did 1.9-Miles and burned 337 calories. Thats an improvement of 40 calories and .3-miles. I really hope that on monday I will break the 2-mile mark. It's amazing that in five more weeks I should, if all goes according to plan, be able to do 3-miles without stopping. Wish me luck!

This weekend I also officially start freelancing for Trucktrends Magazine from Japan. I will also be shooting for their sister publication of Cruisin'. I'll be working with my buddy Mike Alexander on these features and of course I'll post them here after they make press.

On another note, I have decided that I will be writing Mind Of Macias on here. Mind of Macias was a column I did for Mini Truckin' magazine a while back. It's not often that I have something to say about minitrucks or the scene but when I do, i'll just post it here. As part of doing Mind Of Macias again I also plan to use this blog to run my show coverage. We shall see how this pans out as well.

So I didn't have time to get to a computer today so this is my first blog from my phone. i ran 1.5 miles yesterday and today I can definitely feel it. I'm still very excited to run again tomorrow.
Today is also the day I officially pick my classes for school again after a huge absence. Times are good.

The thing that is going to kill me is the fact that I apparently have not ran properly in my shoes. My right shoes sole is wearing on the inside and the outside of my calve was burning really bad on that side. I tried to correct this by walking right but I think it's too late. And of course I'm far too broke to guy buy new shoes right now. I do plan on throwing these mofos in the trash though since they're like 8 years old. Well at least I'll see if I can pull this off and that might give me the motivation to guy and spend the money on some new shoes.
I'm looking forward to eating healthy this week and I'm already excited about Wed. run.
