the first photo was actually taken without me realizing it (til after)


Tomorrow or the day after I'm goin back to Florida. Last time I was there apparently I was rolling around on the beach in white boots. Or something. I remember some muscle car too and a producer who had a girlfriend and I was bummed. Then I went to some Baby Phat party where Mr. Simmons showed up INSTEAD of Kimora which is totally unacceptable and apparently this was before their divorce or seperation or whatever they're going thru. I don't say that lightly I know it's probably hard for them :( . If you don't know me you might think I'm being sarcastic, but I'm not.


This is the "set" for Miami ink where my friend and I went in around 11pm on a Friday after hours cause his homeboy doesn't want to be filmed and still works at night. This was where I got the pink heart tattoo on my right ta ta all Marie Antoinette style or as I imagined Marie Antoinette to have a little pink heart pooching out of her chest all fancy like. Yea that's me. Cept this little pink tattoo didn't heal quite right because it's kind of a portion of a pink heart that I have to fill in with a lipstick pencil and whenever guys see it not filled in I mention that I'm going to get it touched up and they always say, "No don't I like it!" and I'm convinced it's cause they like that I have a damaged broken heart.

Theoretically. Or visually, at least.

But yea...where should I go party in MIAMI? Let a lady know.

he said to me "that one is expensive"


Ran into (& met for the first time) Mr. Dj Renato at the Beat Swap Meet. I dug around the swap meet for a couple hours, found some bass & got a testosterone headache by the end (and spent a little over what I had planned). He was selling some boogie/soul & some hip hop upstairs. Either way he's going to be at Funky Sole this SATURDAY which has moved itself to the Echoplex now.

now that i'm realizing how many friggen ghettotech records i have


Erase the Time Mix on the The New Dance Show


Erik Travis Mix

I was going thru my records this morning to get some sense of organization and satisfaction from some of these crates. Instead of just organized into "What I'm djing now" and "What I'm not djing" I'm trying to get a little more SPECIFIC. Pulled out quite a few Databass and looked up some Erik Travis...that's how I found the above.

lean forward and say something real



I feel in love with Dash Shaw's comics around 3 or 4 years ago. The first one I read was Love Eats Brain which completely floored me, knocked me in the chest and made me feel that I was in the hands of someone who put his heart into it. When I mentioned my fondness for Love Eats Brains to him he told me his newer ones were better. I'm thinking he probably doesn't have the perspective cause I still hold Love Eats Brains as one of my top favorite comics. Its' simply intuitive & sincere, which I love. This video is a trailer for BodyWorld which you can find up online on his site. You should also pick up The Mother's Mouth which I soaked up in an afternoon. Here's an entry I did on him back in August.

if i was single and they were actually nice

I'm a snoop. Let's make this clear. Or an internet sleuth. Choose which, or a variation of both. Either way last week in an array of firefox tabs I found my way to this night. The one above. Okay...this one: Killing Spree. I was curious. Friends of friends...of internet friends. And human fleshly friends. I trust and imagine the content to be very good. But since I don't know them personally I can only hope the vibes are inviting and no LA bullshit (please). So I'll probably go and enjoy the sounds...cause this is pretty much up my alley times ten. Oh and they added me today on myspace so we're totally bffs now. Right? Here's the venue's yelp details: MEDUSA.

in my hood, naturally

Almighty Opp is a puppet troupe...they are performing in my neighborhood on Friday. Franken's is a vegan hot dog stand that handed me free chips while some Hollywood hairhooker called me a FAT i.e. he will always live on in my heart. Two days ago I literally said to my honey "I need to find a puppet show to go see," and he said something like "What kind?" and I said "AN AWESOME ONE AND I WILL FIND IT." I can't vouch that I said it exactly like that but anyway this appeared and the button feels threaded and sewn.

it had made you smarter, actually


Dave the Chimp's video One Line. He made an animation of the graffiti he does which is all done with one line...instead of tagging his name he does draw rings.

I found out about Dave the Chimp's artwork when I found out he made the videos for Robots In Disguise. If you know me I like robots, puppets & doin' it..and all of those things happen in that video.

My friend Frane was like "I'm going to this disco party" and I said "Yea show me the flyer" and he said "It's in my pocket" which is perfect cause it's a disco party and it should be all be IN THE POCKET. But he offered to find the "ELECTRONIC" one for me so here it is.

This Wednesday.

@ LITTLE TEMPLE // Silverlake

choose chinatown emblazoned


This part of town has pretty much been friendly times ten to me. It's where I've dj'ed and spent a lot of weekends since I moved here (@ The Mountain Bar) + the kids @ Welcome Hunters + Lions Den are A+. One of the shops listed could use a little more friendly community vibe but I guess that flys for some people. As for the rest...I'm down.

So, like: do it!?

SF @ The KNOCKOUT

This is my friend Dimitri from Booty Bassment. He lives tween or with or somehow around both SD/SF I think due to him being a grownup and getting to do whatever the fuck he wants like eat cereal 24/7 if he damn well feels like it and also his brother lives up in SF along with some guy I really liked but he was a dumb dj and hurt my feelings (not Dimitri but just some dude).

I think summer had the parties coming and they're sort of winding down. Less flyers for me to throw your way or something. Of course my life doesn't really change it will probably be just the same number of everythings because I'm a grownup and as a grownup I've chosen summer vacay 24/7. This leads to summer like romances that repeat themselves in the same patterns into Fall.
