DJ Hideo .:Mar 01 09:.

I used to listen to 92.3/100.3 The Beat (KKBT) while in college during the late 90s.  DJ Hideo would always catch wreck during his mix show sets.  I remember them for having such raw energy with all his dope trick mixing, music selection, and just straight up soul.  No doubt one of the few who can truly "speak with his hands."  Going clubbing in LA, I would often catch his live mixing at the DMK events where he would always kill it.  I can't remember the exact details, but I think it was either DJ Roldan or DJ Goose from Proof Positive who introduced me to HIdeo and Tony Jr. once at a Cue's in Pasadena.

Earlier tonight I was on my homie Buddhabong's blog, and read some news that DJ Hideo is battling cancer that was very recently diagnosed.  My thoughts and prayers go out to him and his Family.  I hope he will stay strong in both mind, body, and spirit so he can continue to bring that energy that I remember him for.

Check out Hideo's website and learn more about him...

painting. .:Feb 26 09:.

So a few years back, I was painting a bit here and there, but not much at all.  And I stopped painting basically entirely for some unknown reason...I have no idea why.  For the past year or so I have been seriously wanting to get back into it, Im most likely rusty as hell but would love the opportunity to do so..You ever get that feeling where you wished you still did something you enjoyed even though you weren't a master at it, but it did not matter cus you liked doing it and for some reason you just simply dont do it anymore...thats how i feel. and i hate it.  with the exceptional talent in art some of the guys in the crew have i feel more reason to start at it again.
here's some old stuff....soon enough i will post new shit..i promise




Credit Crisis Explained .:Feb 25 09:.

Awesome example of good information graphics design.  Pauze and I have been talking about this stuff lately, and honestly...most of the time this stuff goes way over my head.  What i've concluded from these vids are...investment bankers are insanely greedy!



Beat Puppets .:Feb 25 09:.

So I had this idea to start B-boying again to lose weight, so Romali and I went to 24 hr. fitness the other day.  I lasted about 20 minutes.  I better pick it up though, cause I weighed in at like 195 lbs! OMG! At least I can still do some windmills.



More Flicks .:Feb 24 09:.

I don't want to be boring so I am gonna give a one line about each of these movies I recently watched:

Sukiyaki Western Django
If Sergio Leone and Akira Kurosawa had a violent/emo thought child that Quentin Tarantino reluctantly would babysit on occasion; think Yojimbo and Fistful of Dollars being combined into one final showdown and the participants are the spawn of six-shooting samurai.

Bustin' Down the Door

If you are interested in documentaries on cultural movements and like the ocean.

Slumdog Millionaire
If you could have your life story told through questions leading to a million dollars; its time that Indian Cinema was known outside of the biggest continent.
2009 Academy Award Winner Best Picture

Miracle at St. Anna
I try to watch any Spike Lee flick; a tragic WWII flick with Italian Realism homage.
Miracle at St. Anna

I am anxious to see this flick:
