Yaro Starak, Ed Dale, and a Rockstar Walk Into a Bar

Last Wednesday (8/27) I had the pleasure of meeting up with Yaro Starak, Ed Dale (wearing a Dan Raine name badge) and lots of other aspiring internet marketers at Stitch here in New York. Most people in attendance were there for Ed Dale, but as a long time reader of Entrepreneurs Journey I was there to meet Yaro. Yaro was as sincere and open in person as he appears on his site.

Ed Dale was all over the place meeting and greeting, his 30 Day Challenge site is starting a new challenge this month (today as a matter of fact). If you are interested in making money online the 30 Day Challenge is a great way to get started.

Other attendees that I met included Carla an aspiring Rock Star. Her site RockStarLifeLessons.com gives aspiring musicians advice on getting their music out and published. I met lots of other people who were just starting out on the web, but only Carla gave me a business card. If you are going to a meet up, bring cards (backlinks are good).

I was a bit tired because I had just flown in from Nicaragua (you can see my tan), but Yaro gave me some great advice before I left. He said “Don’t stop blogging”. It is easy to forget why we blog and how valuable a resource a blog can be. Thanks again for the advice.

    Atlantic Avenue Brooklyn, NY – World’s Oldest Subway Tunnel

    The Brooklyn Historic Railway Association is giving another tour of the Atlantic Avenue Tunnel on August 10th.

    I went on the July 27th tour and it was quite an experience. I arrived early for the 1:30pm meeting time and saw a few people milling about at the meeting point. I thought I was in on something unique, but within a half hour the place was packed with people.

    Atlantic Ave. Subway Tunnel Tour

    The organizers came around with waivers for us to sign and collected our $15 (exact change). They seemed a bit unorganized and we didn’t begin going into the tunnel until about 2:15pm. Arriving early meant more time down in the tunnel, but being late didn’t seem to be a problem.

    Abandonded Warehouse in Montreal Canada 2005

    When I was working on the Graffiti Collection I took a bunch of pictures inside of an abandoned warehouse I found in Montreal. I walked around inside for over an hour snapping pictures of the damage and graffiti. You can see all of the pictures over at flickr.

    Unboxing: House Industries Ampersand T-Shirt

    I recently received my House Industries Ampersand T-shirt. They packaged the T-shirt in a cool box, included 4 stickers, and several brochures for their new font set. One of my favorite things about getting orders from House is the smell. The ink off of those brochures is hypnotic. It is like a giant scratch and sniff sticker.

    I thought the Tee was going to be a gun metal blue, but it is jet black. That bit about hot designer chicks accosting you on the street is absolutely true.

    Save This Cat Before…

    I thought this was the coolest illusion. It was on some sort of machine at a winery. Do you see the cat’s face being squished between the gears?

    Today I Discovered…

    crowded street.jpg

    Today the subway was running on alternate tracks due to construction, so I had to take the train to a stop that was a bit far from where I wanted to go. Despite the fact that it was cold outside I was looking forward to the walk. I got off the train and realized that I was smack in the middle of Chinatown, some of the most congested sidewalks in NYC. So I decided to walk as fast as I possible could through the crowded sidewalks. It was really fun! Cutting in and out of people, jumping over fire hydrants, and sliding sideways through tight spots without touching anyone. I felt like a social pro. Today I discovered I actually enjoy extreme urban walking.
