My fellow film and cycling enthusiasts, it is time to rejoice in the name of two pedals and a handlebar at the 11th Annual Bicycle Film Festival (BFF) held at Downtown Independent Theater (251 S. Main St.) from Sept. 8th – 11th in celebration of “bicycles through film, art and music.” Brendt Barbur, Founding Festival Director, was compelled to start […]


The homies at @TruthStudios just released their much anticipated Truth Studios Presents: The Hall of Fame Mixtape Vol. 1 featuring tracks from Thurz, Dom Kennedy, Pac Div, J*DaVeY, Shawn Jackson, Skeme, Young De and more.  Support great music and most importantly, great people who are putting together this mixtape for your hearing pleasure.


There are currently 978 likes for John Carr’s progressive “LA Vs. WAR” art project/exhibition on Kickstarter.com that will hopefully receive enough money for it’s inception on Sept. 9th through the 11th in Downtown Los Angeles in remembrance of the 9-11 attack.  Potential “backers” have an option to donate $1 or more towards this event.  It would be awesome […]


3 guys, 44 days, 11 countries, 18 flights, 38 thousand miles, an exploding volcano, 2 cameras and almost a terabyte of footage… all to turn 3 ambitious linear concepts based on movement, learning and food ….into 3 beautiful and hopefully compelling short films….. = a trip of a lifetime. Rick Mereki : Director, producer, additional […]


This hot new trailer looks pretty exciting for Andrew Niccol’s sci-fi thriller “In Time” starring Olivia Wilde, Justin Timberlake, Amanda Seyfried and others.  In the film, people can stay young at 25 as long as they buy time.  The rich can stay young forever while the poor die young unless they find a way to […]


I wanted to give a BIG THANKS to all of my friends, acquaintances and even strangers who helped me win Gallery Nucleus’ FB contest last week in celebration of Junko Mizuno’s “Cinderella” opening reception this past Saturday (8/6).  It still amazes me how well of a response I received.  I’ve never asked any of my FB […]


I’ve owned quite a few iPods in my life but they never lasted or was stupidly given away. RIP to my 20GB from years ago and bad move on my iPod Nano that has a new owner (X), who still owes more than what is known. My 30GB iPod (5th Gen?) works but when plugged, only one speaker picks up the tunes. The insides are worn. Can I go to the dreadful Apple store to inquire about it? Sure. Why don’t I? *shrugs* So my only properly working iPod is the 2GB Shuffle, which is often used when I’m running. As you can imagine, 2GB does not allow me to splurge on the music importing so I have to be quite selective. My playlist(s) is pretty diverse and I thought I’d share my current because it is pretty bangin’, IMO (in my opinion). In no particular order:


We’ve made many excuses NOT to go, faked “extreme hardships,” pretended not to speak or understand Engrish, intentionally (and maybe untruthfully) expressed hatred for people not of the same ethnic background, dogs, midgets (little people) and the abominable snowman and on the rare occasion, threw a tantrum in the courthouse before getting swiftly excused. Just when you thought you were off the radar, avoided the mundane waiting game that is the assembly room, the government comes back in your life like an STD to summon you to for the most patriotic, American duty you can ever partake in as a citizen – jury mothereffin’ duty.
