America’s Got Talent Season 11 Finale Report (and geek out!)

Last night I had the opportunity to see one of my favorite shows on television – “America’s Got Talent” – taped live at the Dolby Theatre in Hollywood!

I’ve been watching the show since season two and seen it taped twice before, but this time was different. For one, Season 11 has showcased it’s greatest selection of talent ever! Secondly, this time I was going to see the show taped as a guest of my friend Kevin, who’s worked with AGT judge Howie Mandel.

My LA Clippers License Plate Comes out of Retirement

25 years ago, I attended my very first Los Angeles Clippers NBA game and I’ve been a basketball fan ever since.

Around that time I also got my first personalized license plate: LA CLIPR. It lived proudly on my car until 2001. At that time I was broke and had to buy a new car – talk about bad timing. When it came time to decide whether or not to transfer the plates from my previous car — which was a lease in my Father’s name (this detail will be important later) — I opted not to. I just couldn’t afford anything extra.

A Beautiful Southern California Pool at Night

In a couple of weeks I plan to go out to the desert for some low light/night time photography. I haven’t done a lot of that yet, so I felt I needed some practice.

My sister Liz & Brother-In-Law Randy run Symphony Pools, a respected Southern California pool designer/builder. This is the pool they built in the backyard of their home in Simi Valley.

Hello and Welcome!

Welcome to the new jonahweiland.com. Whadaya think?

Following the sale of Comic Book Resources, which I founded and ran for 21 years, my life’s direction has changed – dramatically! Which means I finally have time to return to a bit of blogging.

What’s next? If you’re asking me about what sort of work I’d like to do, I honestly don’t know yet. There’s a lot of things I’d like to do, but for me right now the focus isn’t on the next job, it’s on crafting the life I want to live!
