my pizza.

I like getting my own personal pizza when we go to the pizza parlor. If we get one large pizza for the family, we're all good with getting pepperoni and olive. But if I have the chance to get my own, I get my own. Here's why!

My favorite personal pizza. Toppings: extra sauce, extra cheese, linguica, pepperoni, artichokes, olive, and pineapple. Don't forget Parmesan Cheese, Ranch dip, JalapeƱos, and Anchovies on the side! YUMMY!

What do you like on your Pizza? Let me know!

amazing dinner.

We had an AMAZING DINNER the other night with our friends, Chad & Liege. We went to The Trelio Restaurant in Old Town Clovis, CA. They have been wanting to take us here for a long time now. Finally it worked out. It was so worth the wait too. I love it! The food are great! The Service was good. The atmosphere was excellent. Can't wait to go again. I will be placing Trelio's on the top of my amazing local eats list.

my shout out.

Two Sundays ago I got a Shout Out from the Pastor in the service! He wanted me to show one of my NewCov Production videos I made to the church on that Sunday. It was the Hawk Nelson 12hour Fast Forward into a short 1min video. After showing the video, he said something that makes me laugh every time I hear it.

"That was Randy Parker, our TECH GUY, he did all that!"

hawk nelson.

Hawk Nelson and Run Kid Run - The Green T Tour.

March 11th - LIVE at NewCov.

Today was another very long day for me and New Covenant. I was the "House Guy" again for these concert gigs. I just tied in some feeder power tails and helped out anyway I could. The tour is all self-contained. No running sound or lights this time for the NewCov Production Team. The crew for this tour was great and very prepared. The load-in and load-out went really smoothly. Plus, all the guys and gals, from the managers, to the back line crew, to the band members, they all were very cool and calm. I had some good conversations with many of them. I also got to eat dinner with the band Run Kid Run this evening. They are a bunch of great guys. It was more fun than work for me today. I was truly blessed.

You can check out newcovproduction for more pics and videos.

Magic Show.

"Do you want me to re-appear it?"

When I was like 11 or 12 years old, my mom got us a VHS tape video camera recorder! YEAH! A whole VHS TAPE fit right inside it! Can you believe it? It was huge! Just like the first "brick" cell phones made.

It wasn't long before I was making videos with it! I would film just about anything and everything. But this video is one of the first video's I have ever made.

It was pretty high tech for the times, if you ask me. Check out Randy Parker's Magic Show Video!

new set design.

This is the current set design I just finished for NewCov Sunday Mornings. This set is themed for our new sermon series called "RESCUE". I spent nearly 80+ hours building this set. Pat worked just about the same amount putting together all the music for the services. All of our hard work sure did pay off. The kick off to the series last Sunday was amazing. It was a great morning. People really responded to the idea and the theme for the series.

It's only two weeks to go before Easter Sunday. We'll be hitting it hard again from now until then for the next sermon series called "Amazing Grace". Oh yeah... Another set design to make too! YEAH BABY!!!

Make sure to check out my NewCovProduction blog for more pictures and a video from Week one of RESCUE. It's all LIVE at NEWCOV.
