natethegreat1984 My favorite late night talk show ended last night. Craig Ferguson created a thing of beauty over the last 10 years. I'm going to miss the gay robot skeleton, the dancing horse, and the foul mouthed puppets. I can't wait to see what he does in the next chapter of his life! Thanks for the decade of glorious insanity, Craig! 5d
  •   pomegranatespacemermaid I loved it and I honestly loved it when Craig Kilborn hosted it took 5d
  •   anne50ify Love him! 5d
  •   natethegreat1984 I have a big soft spot for late night talk shows, @pomegranatespacemermaid. Working in restaurants means I'm usually getting off work around midnight or so, which is perfect timing! So yeah, I've been watching Craig regularly since he first started. It's all very bittersweet for me. 4d
  •   natethegreat1984 I love him as well, @anne50ify! He was such a genuine guy. I'm going to miss his show very much. 4d
  •   anne50ify Agree 4d
  •   pomegranatespacemermaid @natethegreat1984 yeah I used to be that way when I worked retail. Not getting home until 11/midnight. That would be the only thing to do to relax and wind down. But I always loved the late late show. They always had better guests and segments 4d

natethegreat1984 Gotta love Southern cooking on a rainy day! Fried chicken, bacon, biscuit, slaw, and a heaping side of grits! I am riding a sweet protein high as I type this, you guys. Well done, "Muscadine!" 2w

natethegreat1984 I turned 30 yesterday you guys! It was such an eventful day that I didn't have time to post anything until total. I worked an 11 hour breakfast/lunch/happy hour bartending shift and made a pile of cash, which I happy spent after work on bourbon and BBQ! After that we painted the town. It was glorious. I got the birthday ink on Thursday as an early present to myself. Art by @obritztattoos, who is responsible for most of my ink. I'm liking my 30s. 3w

natethegreat1984 The mighty wolf! Picked up this gem of a tattoo this afternoon courtesy of @jmwilson_tattoo! It's a beauty! My last name roughly translated in Latin means "Son of the Wolf." When I learned that my thoughts immediately turned to traditional tattoos and now here we are. Life is good, my friends! 1mon
  •   vitonja Starting with train from Moscow to Bejing, and from there we'll go to vietnam, laos, cambodia and India and magbe trecking in Nepal ^^ 1mon
  •   natethegreat1984 That sounds like quite the adventure @vitonja! Now it is I who am jealous of you! 1mon
  •   carrotfleur You have the best art work 4w
  •   natethegreat1984 Why thank you, @carrotfleur! That's high praise. 4w
  •   chloe.psd I love this! 2w
  •   natethegreat1984 Why thank you @chloe.psd! I love how it turned out! 2w
  •   chloe.psd I actually took a moment and looked at your other pieces. you have excellent work, and I'm very envious! I was supposed to get another today, but it had to be postponed 2w
  •   natethegreat1984 Tattoos are expensive, @chloe.psd. But all the hard work that goes into paying for them makes them all that much more special, I feel. Thanks for the compliment on my ink! That's always nice to hear. 2w

natethegreat1984 Had the pleasure of meeting Chef Sean Brock tonight when he visited Portland guns blazing on his book tour! My brother Matthew and I are both huge fans of his. "Mind of a Chef" is the best cooking show I have ever seen. The food world needs more cooks like Sean, and "Heritage" is a cook book I can't wait to to sink my teeth into. 1mon

natethegreat1984 I just met my comedy hero Bob Odenkirk and he liked my tattoos!!!! "Is that Tom Waits?" Bob asked in disbelief, "that's so cool! I don't have any tattoos myself but I yours are great!" Well, my life is now complete. I'm so happy that I was able to finally see him live! A comedy dream come true. 2mon

natethegreat1984 Tonight I competed in my first ever bartending competition! It was a blast and to top it off I finished in the Top 5! My drink was called "The Italian Stallion" in honor of Rocky (naturally): 2 1/2 oz Woodford Reserve Bourbon, 1/2 French Sweet Vermouth, 1/4 Cynar (Italian aperitif made of artichoke hearts and spices), 2 dashes of orange bitters, top with a smoked orange peel to garnish. Although I didn't win a free to trip to Kentucky I did get a bunch of free bourbon! So yeah, it was a good night. 2mon

natethegreat1984 "I'm shipping up to Boston!" Finally saw The Dropkick Murphys live and it was one of the greatest shows I have ever seen! The crowd reaction when the band broke into "Shipping Up To Boston" was a thing of beauty. Thanks for the memories, fellas! 3mon

natethegreat1984 I finally got a tattoo dedicated to one of my favorite people: my dear sweet mother! I've wanted to get a tattoo like this since I was a teenager, to be honest. I love how it turned out! Thanks to @tysonarndt for making this dream a reality. 3mon
  •   natethegreat1984 I checked out her work and I was mighty impressed, @vitonja! She's a great artist! What she does with colors is impressive. It's s little girly but so what? Good art is good art. Do you have any of her work on you? If not, what would you be interested in getting? 2mon
  •   vitonja No, not yet. But she is coming to Trondheim (my home town) in december. I would love to have a hot air balloon on my heel, but I'm unsure how it will work for a tattoo location.. And I would also love to have my cat somewhere. 2mon
  •   natethegreat1984 I like that idea, @vitonja! December is my birthday month as well. It's the most wonderful time of the year! As far as your hot air balloon location, might I suggest the back of your leg? It may give her a better canvas... I'm getting my calf tattooed at some point next year. 2mon
  •   vitonja Well, I'm not that keen on something that far up. I don't have great legs.. But I will give it a tought! Have you descided what you are getting tattooed? December is truly magical 2mon
  •   skvlska @vitonja @natethegreat1984 thanks for nice words, you guys are awesome! 2mon
  •   natethegreat1984 Of course, @skvlska! You are an incredible artist! Your color palette is fantastic! 2mon
  •   vitonja @skvlska do you have any free apoitments when you get back to trondheim, and what is your tought about ankel/knee tattoos? 2mon
  •   skvlska @vitonja write me an e-mail karolina.skulska@gmail.com, for appointments Please ask at @onkelhenrystattooshop, tattooinng on places like knees etc. is possible, but there's a lot of space on the body where tattoos will look better and stay longer :) 2mon

natethegreat1984 Went to see the great Pete Holmes with my little brother tonight and we had a blast! Pete has been delving into philosophy like a modern day Steve Martin recently so I brought him a few of my favorite books to read. He took a photo of us and posted it to his Instagram. What an honor! I love you, @peteholmes! Thanks for being so gracious and I hope you like the books! 3mon
  •   katydid52 Wow that's so badass! He's awesome!! 3mon
  •   natethegreat1984 Isn't he though, @katydid52? He's one of the most genuine people I've ever met. Met him several times and he's always been so nice and gracious. He's a very lovable fellow. 3mon
  •   natethegreat1984 Oh yeah! Almost forgot the ol' #PeteHolmes hashtag. I was in such fanboy mode it slipped my mind. Such a great show! 3mon
  •   katydid52 That's really awesome! I'm always glad to hear that about celebrities - for some reason I think it's sort of surprising and rare. 3mon
  •   sethd85 Super cool Nate! @tarad85 does a great impression of his Batman character. 3mon
  •   natethegreat1984 Ha! Oh yeah, @sethd85 @tarad85? That's awesome! Yeah, his Batman impression is the best. 3mon
  •   natethegreat1984 I hear that, @katydid52. You'll be pleased to know he's a sweet guy. 3mon

natethegreat1984 Thinking about home a lot these days. I was lucky enough to be able to visit my folks for a few days last month and it did me a world of good! There is something so refreshing about walking along the ocean for hours, talking about life, love, and the pursuit of happiness with people you love. It was good for my soul. 🌞 #CrescentCity 3mon

natethegreat1984 Thank you JACK WHITE for one of the best shows of my life!!!! Three hours flew by in the blink of an eye. He is such an incredible entertainer! The 40 minute encore was the icing on the cake. #JackWhite 4mon
  •   kdluhoo WUT jealous. 4mon
  •   natethegreat1984 He did indeed, @lazglickman, and it was glorious! 4mon
  •   natethegreat1984 It was pretty amazing, @kdluhoo, not gonna lie. 😎 4mon
  •   lulada5 Legend! I want his record 4mon
  •   rommuss i wanted to be there! 4mon
  •   natethegreat1984 I wish you could have made it, @rommuss! It was one of the best shows I have ever seen! He'll be back soon I'm sure. 4mon
  •   nydll OMG!!! You're a lucky man...He's the future of the music. Saw him live on 2010 but can't wait to hear him performing Lazaretto...and he's not coming 4mon
  •   natethegreat1984 I love Jack White with a passion that burns like the sun, @katttrrr. I'm sorry to hear he's not coming to your neck of the woods. Luckily he's as creative as they come so I'm sure he will be releasing more stuff in the near future and continuing his tour. 4mon

natethegreat1984 I still can't believe he's gone. Robin Williams will always hold such a special place in my heart. I was raised on his movies. My family must have seen "Hook," "Aladdin," and "Mrs. Doubtfire" dozens of times together. He was always one of my favorite people. He had such depth and tenderness that he brought to every roll. I'm really going to miss him. Farewell, Robin. Thank you for making the world a better place. 5mon
  •   natethegreat1984 He was my mom's favorite actor hands down, @katydid52. We grew up on his movies. He was like part of the family. 4mon
  •   katydid52 Yeah it's truly sad news. Hope you do decide to get a tattoo for him - that'd be epic! @natethegreat1984 4mon
  •   kieron_douglass 4mon
  •   natethegreat1984 You know it, @kieron_douglass! He was the best! 4mon
  •   kieron_douglass I was lucky enough to have spent some time with Steve Irwin before he passed and when he died it was absolutely shocking and I was very upset and to see Robin Williams leave this world, I feel that exact emotion again. It really is sad to see someone as happy as we all saw them, be so sad on the inside. I would have loved to give him a high five. Cheers mate. 4mon
  •   natethegreat1984 Well said, my friend, well said! Cheers, @kieron_douglass! He had a profound impact on so many people. 4mon
  •   villepaasimaa 4mon
  •   natethegreat1984 Thanks, man. Much appreciated, @villepaasimaa. 4mon

natethegreat1984 I rewatched "The Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou" last night and fell in love with Bill Murray all over again! The film came out on my birthday back in 2004 and it remains one of my favorite films! As a kid who grew up on the California coast I grew up reading Cousteau's books and Wes Anderson's loving homage will always hold a special place in my heart. #BillMurray #WesAnderson 5mon
  •   blondieonblonde Too* 5mon
  •   natethegreat1984 Wes Anderson is brilliant, @blondieonblonde! I first discovered him in high school when I rented "Rushmore" for the first time. I watched it three times before I had to return it. The film sparked my love of cinema which has changed my life for the better. 5mon
  •   flavianery_fvia 5mon
  •   mizzgolightly I own this movie, love Wes & Bill & everyone - but I've never watched it. I feel sad it's taken me 10 years. Think I kinda forgot I had it, cuz I've thrashed my Tenenbaums. That's serious procrastinating. Tomorrow it's going on. Thanks for the inspiration!!! Much obliged 3mon
  •   natethegreat1984 Please do so, @mizzgolightly! It's a beautiful little film! I'll be curious to hear your thoughts on it. 3mon
  •   natethegreat1984 It's the best, @thealbinorhinog13! It came out originally on my birthday as well. It was a good night that night. 3mon

natethegreat1984 Proof that the best stuff can be found at flea markets! I picked up this sweet Wesley "Iron Man" Matthews bobble head for $2 this afternoon! I'm pretty excited about it. He's such a great player and I admire his resilience. Plus you can never have too many bobble heads around. #RipCity #GoBlazers #Portland 5mon

natethegreat1984 Happy 4th of July, my friends!!! My restaurant was closed to mark the occasion so I've spent most of the day snacking and taking naps (which is my American dream, really). It's a good day to be alive! #portland #fireworks #waterfront 6mon
