I named this blog the Adventures of an Ace for a reason. The following story will be made up of several posts.My goal from the start had been to write about poker, sports, travel, and life experiences. The story is not related to poker even though the title might suggest otherwise. Just for fun, I'll refer to Ace in the third person.As Al Galdi says every morning on the local ESPN radio station, "And away we go."Ace moved to the US 20 years ago.His English vocabulary consisted of some basic words and a few curse words every kid picks up no matter where they live on the planet.You might be wondering, didn't he have English classes in school? Just like you, he had foreign language classes in school and passed them. I'm sure many of you had similar experiences with foreign languages.
Ten years ago, he came to the DC area after graduating college. He left the first one because it was a bit too far from DC. Humalakhak---shucks may tagalog is getting better na! You know that." "He's too possessive." Reklamo ko. Once I had them, I flew out to LA to record them with Dylan Bauld who worked on Halsey’s “Badlands." I was a big fan, and it was the first time I had ever gotten in touch with someone and was like "I need to work with you!" So he did half of the EP, and then I finished up the other half in Nashville (which is where I usually do most of my recording).
