I had so much fun on this night with my best friend Peter Distefano, Robert Trujillo and I doing an "Island electro" set for SIMA's (Surf Industry Manufacturer Association) Waterman's Ball at Salt Creek where I recieved the environmentalist of the year award. Doc Paskowitz and his family got a lifetime achievement award, and Stephanie Gilmore was chosen as the Waterperson of the year. What a special lady she is. She bought Robert's bass guitar in the live auction. I thought that was a classy move.There was so much genuiness and generosity in the air. I could feel the ocean swell in appreciation for those of us who attended. And our music was so much fun to perform- I'm thinking we must do it again and again. As nights go- it was very special one for me. My hero Rory Russell was in attendance, and got a chance to see what I do best (not surf- I just love it, but am no match for his daring and the talents of the men and woman who've made it their life's passion. On this one evening though, I truly felt welcome as one of them; a bonafied "Waterman". A tittle I could not be more proud of.

Lollapalooza is coming to Bogota, Colombia. Friends from around the world have thus far had a great reaction to the news. Plans are being drawn to attend. This makes a total of 6 counties to date- whereby the world's greatest musicians come to perform live for a mass of "new generation" music lovers! Stand by 'ol schoolers. You're presence is requested. In my mind we are just getting started. I want in my lifetime to see the entire planet listening to sweet music and enjoying their lives; transforming this 'ol globe into a peaceful happy everafter. A beautiful bouncing mass of music traveling with excitement and a message.
What should the message be? We have the ability now to spread around a powerful message. What should it be? It should be something healing. Peaceful, and absolutely possible (with planetary cooperation). Let's discuss. Also, I am looking to have the ability to speak to people with a phone in hand- and disifer what they say with a software application. I also want the ability to translate my thoughts into their language- so I can speak to them and learn in realtime. Anyone know of such a translation app. they can direct me to? Thanks pal...
