My good friends over at Truth Studios, a boutique recording studio located in Hollywood, are doing something really special. A lot of exciting things will be exploding from there. In the meantime, let’s just enjoy an exclusive video of producer Chuck Inglish talking about making the beat for Rick Ross’ “Party Heart” in the lab. The […]


Los Angeles based artists rapper/singer Young De (aka Demrick) and producer/rapper Scoop DeVille teamed up and put out a bumpin’ EP last year called “Neva LOOK Back.”  They did a remix to one of the tracks “What’s Good!?” featuring Cliqou Nico and the talented Brevi. An oldie but a goodie, you can catch the music video […]


Happy 18th anniversary, Juxtapoz magazine! Thanks to your group art exhibition (runs until April 14, 2012) at Copro Gallery this past Saturday, I found a few new artists that I am almost obsessed with – namely the highlighted artist of the event, Leslie Ditto, along with Charles Wish and  Tiffany Bozic. The place was packed and […]

This summer, I am excited to check out a documentary on the Chinese political dissident Ai Weiwei: Never Sorry  by first-time director Alison Klayman.  Celebrated (and despised) as China’s “most famous international […]

The exhibition will showcase a butt load […]

With an aim to post less words and more photos, I’ll briefly recap that this weekend was filled with lots of […]

This past weekend was very relaxing and I was able to be more active in the kitchen, which was documented in photos.  I ran, cooked, ate, enjoyed art, took car for regular maintenance, shopped, walked the busy streets of Old Town Pasadena in blazing Los Angeles weather and stuffed my face. What a way to […]


April 1st is bookmarked in my calendar for Games of Thrones Season 2, one of HBO’s hottest TV shows second to True Blood. But to be fair, I don’t actively watch all HBO shows even though I am aware of everyone’s fab reviews of Boardwalk Empire, Curb Your Enthusiasm and so forth.
