My time line.

In 1989 Robin Gonzalez was born in Maracaibo, Zulia.
In 1990 I traveled for the first time to US.
In 1994 I started first grade in "Los Maristas" school.
In 2006 I graduated from this school.
In 2007 I began my professional career at URBE.

My favorite drummer from all times.

He's my favorite drummer of all times, not because he is the best, just because he has been my muse from all days and for him i started to play the drums.

from wikipedia:
Travis Landon Barker (born November 14, 1975) is an American drummer, who achieved most of his fame by drumming for the band, Blink-182. He currently is the drummer for +44 and has also played for side projects Box Car Racer, Transplants and Expensive Taste.

After initially playing for bands such as The Suicide Machines and as "Baron Von Tito" for The Aquabats, his career took off when he joined up with punk pop band, Blink-182 in 1998. Barker became known for his mohawk and his tendency to perform without a shirt, revealing a multitude of tattoos. Barker has since established himself as a versatile drummer, producing and guest appearing in music projects of numerous genres including hip-hop, punk rock, alternative rock, ska rap, pop and even country music.

As vast as his musical interests are his business ventures. He founded a clothing company, Famous Stars and Straps in 1999, LaSalle Records in 2004, as well as a Wahoo's Fish Tacos restaurant in Norco, California. Companies such as DC Shoes and Zildjian cymbals have co-designed products in his name.

Barker's marriage to former Miss USA, Shanna Moakler, was featured in MTV's Meet the Barkers (2005–2006). After filing for divorce in 2006, his marriage trouble and personal life have been scrutinzed in the media following a public MySpace battle[1] with his wife and a brief relationship with Hilton Hotel heiress, Paris Hilton. Moakler recently announced that the 2 are making a fresh start and working it out for their children

dude catch a wave.

this is my sport's hero.
i think this is one of the best surfers in the world.
his name is Tom Curren.

a short biography took in a web page:

Once or twice in every generation a surfer comes along with such natural talent and consummate skill that new performance benchmarks are set for the entire sport. When Tom Curren burst onto the scene in 1980 by winning the juniors division of the World Amateur Surfing Championships, it was already obvious that he was the one who'd set a new standard for the rest of the decade.

With a smooth and powerful style and a fresh new approach to the waves that combined big moves with eloquent tube riding, Curren appeared destined to redefine high performance surfing. Plus Curren had a natural affinity for the ocean that seemed to place him always in the perfect position at exactly the right time. Even in his mid-teens, Tom Curren's surfing suggested experience that was impossible in one so young.

By the time he won his first professional World Title in1985, still only 19 years old, Tom Curren entered the record books—the first ever American to take the world crown since the pro tour began back in 1976. He went on to win two more World Titles, the last in 1990 a nearly miraculous comeback that had him winning the crown as an unseeded competitor.

Today, Tom Curren is back home in Santa Barbara and making another improbable comeback in his late 30s. But for all his illustrious contest appearances—he has still won more world tour events than any other surfer—and for all the magazine articles and photos and television interviews, Curren remains an enigma, a mystery man, a soul surfer, incredibly famous but not at all well known.

It is known however that Tom Curren, son of respected big wave pioneer Pat Curren, is an amazing surfer, a being born of the sea and its waves, as much of a mystery as the ocean itself — and a name that will be recorded forever in surfing's rich and colorful history.

Va. Tech president: Gunman was student

We do know that he was an Asian male — this is the second incident — an Asian man who was a resident in one of our dormitories," university president Charles Steger said in an interview with CNN, confirming for the first time that the killer was a student.

Among the dead were professors Liviu Librescu and Kevin Granata, said Ishwar K. Puri, the head of the engineering science and mechanics department.

Librescu, an Israeli, was born in Romania and was known internationally for his research in aeronautical engineering, Puri wrote in an e-mail to The Associated Press.

Granata and his students researched muscle and reflex response and robotics. Puri called him one of the top five biomechanics researchers in the country working on movement dynamics in cerebral palsy.

Also killed was Ryan Clark, a student from Martinez, Ga., who had several majors and carried a 4.0 grade-point average, said Vernon Collins, coroner in Columbia County, Ga.

His friend Gregory Walton, a 25-year-old who graduated last year, said he feared the nightmare had just begun.

"I knew when the number was so large that I would know at least one person on that list," said Walton, a banquet manager. "I don't want to look at that list. I don't want to.

"It's just, it's going to be horrible, and it's going to get worse before it gets better."
