My friend Vernon is Harold and I am Kumar but we were not stoned going to the KISS concert.  If we had been stoned we would never have found the backstage door entrance and do all the things we had to do in the night.  Our friend Bre joins us in our adventure and you get to see the action backstage all made possible thanks to the bands manager Doc McGee.  Here is the video Harold and Kumar’s Excellent Adventure with Bre and KISS.

Eric Haller singer songwriter grew up in surf culture of California and now living in Costa Rica – Viva Costa Rica surf team Panamericanos 2019 https://mynameiskhan.ca/2019/08/02/eric-haller-singer-songwriter-grew-up-in-surf-culture-of-california-and-now-living-in-costa-rica-viva-costa-rica-surf-team-panamericanos-2019/ https://mynameiskhan.ca/2019/08/02/eric-haller-singer-songwriter-grew-up-in-surf-culture-of-california-and-now-living-in-costa-rica-viva-costa-rica-surf-team-panamericanos-2019/#respond Fri, 02 Aug 2019 12:10:02 +0000 http://mynameiskhan.ca/?p=12661

Watching the Costa Rica surfing team get in a huddle and shout-out Costa Rica made me think of Eric Haller, singer, songwriter and how I met him and his brother Bret Haller in the surfing state of California with our opening greeting being, “what’s up dude”.

 

I had been living in Los Angeles with two black supermodels next door to me who had opened the door while only a small opening for other models of colour.  Iman who had this dude move in with her called Bowie, and Beverly Johnson who at that time was dating Chuck Norris.  Almost everyone in our building was either building a new place to call home like Iman and Bowie or waiting for the right place to come available and for me that was a home built by a Canadian artist Douglas Reisbrough overlooking Laurel Canyon infamous with rock band and the creative type.  My home was on Elusive Drive on a dirt road with one neighbor the Haller’s.  Mike Haller and his two son’s who had their own home on the property Bret and Eric Haller. 

 

One day while standing on my front gate Bret Haller stopped over to introduce himself and I asked him what you guys do over their curious as everyday I would hear drums and guitars.  Bret told me he and his brother Eric had a band Current User and they were recording an album and they had done some music for Sean Penn on his film Indian Runner.  Mike Haller passed away fighting the fight with cancer, and Bret Haller about 10 years or so also fighting cancer.  I will always have a special love and place in my heart for the Hallers.  Eric Haller who now lives in Costa Rica and I can understand why, Costa Rica is a bit like Elusive Drive, nature and rustic or as I call it the Switzerland of Latin America. 

Bret Haller gave me the CD from Indian Runner and here is the song from that film and this link will take you to Current User music that these dudes were working on next door to me on Elusive Drive.

Swedish media innovator Annie Wegelius who died of breast cancer at 58 in 2017 inspired me with the passion for Tour de France https://mynameiskhan.ca/2019/07/18/swedish-media-innovator-annie-wegelius-who-died-of-breast-cancer-at-58-in-2017-inspired-me-with-the-passion-for-tour-de-france/ https://mynameiskhan.ca/2019/07/18/swedish-media-innovator-annie-wegelius-who-died-of-breast-cancer-at-58-in-2017-inspired-me-with-the-passion-for-tour-de-france/#respond Fri, 19 Jul 2019 03:49:10 +0000 http://mynameiskhan.ca/?p=12639
  • Back in the mid ninety’s a Swedish company Investor AB  announced it was considering investing a billion dollars in media.  As I had a friend Gus Fisher who was at the time on the board of News Corporation and they were seeking investment I decided to go get the billion from the Swedish company and in the process would end up meeting the very electric lady Annie Wegelius in Stockholm. I was speaking to her six months before her death and during Tour de France I think of her often. 

When I first met Annie she was the owner of Wegelius Television, one of Scandinavia’s largest independent production companies.  She had great ideas for reality television, and drama.  She would later sell 91% to Swedish film industry giant Svensk Film-industri who wanted to widen their scope in television.  Now what did Annie do after this? She took a sleeping bag and a tent to follow the Tour de France.  I would call Annie often during her adventures and she would tell me about how exciting it was, and if you wanted reality Tour de France was up close and personal.  I would get calls with all the action updates and I thought how cool is this lady, she sells a stake in her company for $10 million and takes off with a tent. Naturally this made me fall in love with all the Swedish women of adventure and the updates from Annie made me want to do exactly what she was doing.   Now each year I follow the tour creating social media content using all the tools we have now such as drones and Go Pros and live streams and thinking, Annie would have loved this. 

As you can read from the message above which was in March of 2017 , Annie was alone in Mexico City, and I have Mexico City pretty wired and unable to be with her in what was her last attempt to save her life I connected her with all the people I had met and become friends with in Mexico City.  Sadly Annie lost the battle. Yet each year after her death I think of her during the tour her camping on side of roads, or outside town or in the Alps. Whenever I see a rider taking those steep climbs I think of Annie and that dreadful killer cancer.
