I wake up every morning and browse thru my list of blogs & videos.
To my surprise, I didn’t come across this video until I read Prohgress’ entry at FMonYourDial.com

Checked out the last hour of my friend’s art show this past weekend at the Buckwild Gallery (normally a skate/clothing shop) on Venice Blvd. The anti-Valentine’s theme was pretty clear from most of the art on display.
Karin Anna (aka: The Facebook Poking Queen) doing some live art
The show featured a variety of styles from abstract to commercial, to graff.
So I have this co-worker who my other co-workers and I think is secretly a ninja assassin. Well…she’s not. But! She’s actually a drummer in this really cool ska band called Half Past Two.
I happened to catch an acoustic set of theirs (something very rare for them and perhaps not as high-energy) at 2nd Street Jazz in Little Tokyo not too long ago. I had actually heard their EP before seeing them live and already knew that t...Read more

I teach teenagers how to do figure drawings twice a week - this takes place in LA, La Crescenta, Fullerton, and Cerritos. Pretty much covers LA right? Well we end up talking about music every now and then and it still amazes me the reactions I get from the kids. I’m 27 but apparently that’s ancient to some - when one of my students found that I like the Arctic Monkeys, he was like, “Woah! I didn’t know people your age liked music like that!” (so what do people my age like? “I don’t know, 2Pac?”)
Here’s a New Year’s tip: As long as you aren’t married, your parents are supposed to give you money. If you are, tough luck. I expect my red envelope soon.
I’ve been hella listening to A Fine Frenzy. You know how some people get hella hype on the Internet, making you want not to listen to it and love just for the sake of being obstinate? Oh, that’s just me? Okay. Well. The fine music of Alison Sudol was that for me, until I accidentally downloaded this song and then immediately got the rest of the marvelous album One Cell In The Sea...Read more
