My SOCCER TEAM "HUNG OVER" did it again! and as we played proudly in our pink uniforms to help support breast cancer awareness we won the semi-finals 4 to 1 & finals 2 to 1 this last weekend. I was happy to have scored 2 goals to help my team win. Sorry to brag but this IS williechambers.com so I guess I pretty much make up the rules here. You never know, I might even start my own "Willigion". Anyways, I dedicated my first goal to my grandmother "Grammy" Beverly Chambers and my second goal to my grandma Susanne Anderson who both passed away tragically to breast cancer. I think of them often as being two of the smartest kindest people and they are always in my heart. I never knew my Mom's mom Susanne but I heard she was pretty much perfect (President of Kappa Kappa Gamma at UCLA and a straight A student!). I did know grammy for 12 years and she was so perfect I often ask myself "what would grammy do?" in tough situations. After I ask that question the answer is always easy. She was a great one.

I had a fun night in LA with some cool music friends last weekend as well: Tim & Marko 72 from the band Sugarcult, Brooke who has a cool self-titled album on iTunes & former Capitol A&R Representative Loren Isreal and I all went to El Compadre Restaurant for some excellent Mexican food. After with even more friends we went to The Comedy Store where we saw some laugh out loud great stand up comedy from several comedians from comedy central and even one of the women from The View. If anyone has a night to kill in LA I highly recommend it. These guys will make you laugh out loud no doubt.

Chargers lost... :-( at least Cromartie Florence & Jammer all got interceptions off of Brady... we scored 4 times and the Patriots only scored 3 times! too bad we only scored field goals while they only scored touch downs...anyways it was a pretty good season... no Superbowl though... as Homer Simpson would say... DOUGH!!!! anyways...

Cool news for Kristen and I ... we're going on a 16 day trip to New Zealand! March 3rd to March 19th, 2008...we are feeling super lucky these days to try and check out the world!!! (it does seem to be getting smaller these days)... if anyone knows any cool spots or must see's we would love to hear from you! (my friends from the band Sugarcult are also Touring over near there in Austrailia so we'll all try and come back with some cool accents for everyone) g'daey matey. lots of cool stuff over there crocs koalas shrimp... surf, can't wait!

Thanks again for checking in and drop me a line to let me know how you're doing if you have time, I always love to hear from everyone!

It all started when our generous friends called up and said that they were coming to pick us up in a Limo with little notice... a group of about 10 of us headed down to a great sushi restaurant called NOBU in downtown San Diego and we had a great dinner and after party at The Hard Rock Cafe dance club nearby... (VIP treatment rules) ...with more little notice our friends invited us on their private jet out of Palomar Airport in Carlsbad, CA to bring ourselves and my guitar on a 4 day luxurious trip to San Francisco at the Clift Hotel for an extended weekend getaway... with little time to decide...we happily accepted.

We packed fast and drove right up to the the private 15 person plane where a valet guy helped us with our bags took our car and off we went!

About 2 hours later we were in our luxury suite at the Clift Hotel in San Francisco, CA. Our generous friends treated us to clubs Ruby Sky (which had amazing trapeze artists and performers right above the dance floor! It was like watching Cirque de Solei right above us while we sipped champagne and got our groove on)...

We went to another club called Sliders that had great music and a great scene...

One night we went to this movie theatre built by Robert Redford called Kabuki which was amazing!!! We sat in lazy boys and ordered from the full bar while we watched Juno...my new favorite movie!!! I highly recommend it.

New Years was a blast at the Clift Hotel and look out for a ton of pics coming your way from all of my beautiful friends!!!

I forgot to mention the acoustic guitar show I put on in our living room suite with champagne beer Grey Goose room service...pretty much everything you could ask for or dream up...that weekend would be a tough one to top...I love private parties!!!

I'm going to have to do these more often...

That's the short version of a great weekend... and now, today, it's my Birthday!!! woo hoo! I can't believe it!

If you wanna give me a present you can buy my new book called The Painted Zebra that just came out at authorhouse.com or barnesandnoble.com (I dedicated it to Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. who has a birthday coming up to so if you order it now you can enjoy reading it to a loved little one on his birthday for me... I'm pretty proud of the message it sends and if you like Dr. Suess and Shel Silverstein I think you'll really like The Painted Zebra) you can preview it at williechambers.com just click the star that says "Writing"

or do me a small quick birthday favor and tell one of your friends to buy their favorite Windsor song off of our album Melting Highway in the iTunes Music Store...simply search Windsor Melting Highway and most people like our song Miss You the best! thanks so much for your support and for checking in!

This is a great start to a great 2008!!!
Hope to hear from you all soon!
