A Little Bit of Soap, De La Soul

I dedicate this song to some kids in my Studio I class.

I'd also would like to thank the Lord that this semester is over so I don't have to smell that ass cheese from those kids for at least another 40 days. Then I pray to our Savior that I do not have classes with these folks my up coming semester.... oh Lord!

instead of work or working on my finals, i'm looking up music videos. this wouldn't be a problem if mtv would actually play music videos, or if digital television and youtube didn't take over and killed the box (poor man's mtv).

Chicago Independent Radio Project (CHIRP)

For those who can't make it, you can still help out these two Chicago NPOs by donating at All donations + 15% of the bar and bonuses from the owners are split between the two groups.

I love analog, but sometime in the near future, the production to keep them going is going to stop.

Music = Vinyl
Television = Static

i saw this on dj limbs' blog. first i thought it was a joke, then i was really paying attention, then i decided to look this guy up.

it's not a joke, this dude really is singing in japanese, enka style. his grandmother, who is japanese, influenced him in the japanese culture, and he has been singing enka since he was 6. now he is pretty popular in japan, therefore it's not a joke. i think he is awesome.

i believe gary was trying to advertise Battle To Be Known 3 that is coming up this weekend...

unfortunately, i wont be able to go. this weekend i'll be in detroit working on my final projects for school! if you fortunate folks need something to do, Battle To Be Known 3 should be, will be, an exciting event to go to, especially since it's a two day thing.

more info on facebook:

Keeping Busy Busy, Busy Bee!

for the past few weeks, my right wrist has been asking for a vacation. with all weekly parties, taking pictures and trying to party at the same time, it just needed a break! i decided to setup two non-hand held camera weekends, and the destination, Detroit. For the two weekends, i will be using a 4x5 large format camera i rented out from school. so far this past weekend, my wrist really appreciated it and also would like to thank Nic Notion for taking over the DSLR.

actually, the main purpose of going to detroit is to work on my finals for my View Camera and Studio I class. The project is suppose to capture Detroit's hip hop community. From what I got, it's more of artists around detroit and the area of detroit they represent.

And now for some photos of the photoshoots.

During the summer, this lovely girl named paloma. she came to chicago to visit from bogota, colombia, and I believe this girl is talented composer. piano is the main instrument she plays, but i think she has a lovely voice also.

The second one will be at the Myour House, 3329 S Indiana Ave,and it's a costume party! best part is it's an 18 and up party, so for those babies that need a place to party, this is it!

2 weekends of Detroit

First weekend, i headed out there with the Myour House girls.

Friday, when we arrived, first thing we did was scoop up Nic Notion and met up with Quelle and Mars. We headed out to Eastern Market for a little party. Unfortunately, as I grabbed my camera out of my bag, I realized I forgot the battery. I did bring the film camera, but those photos will take some time to post up.

Most of the weekend was a blurr, it was all hanging out until Saturday night. We all went to the Benefits for Hex Murda show, who had Slum Village, Trick Trick, Rude Jude, The Alchemist, Danny Brown, and other fun loving hip hop artist performing just to gather a crowd to support Hex Murda's medical bills.

here are some of my shitty iphone photos
trick-trick with yung berg's stolen $70,000 transformer's necklace. everyone that wasn't performing got kicked off the stage when he was on... you know, just incase.

oh yeah they really know how to rip you off in Detroit
12 cent different if you pay cash instead of credit.

The second time around, I went to visit my dear friend Kristine. Too bad I couldn't stay the entire weekend. Instead I came back to work a party that got busted. Anywho, I did have an awesome time hanging out at proof seeing a bum stripping in the window for some unfortunate ladies. then going to Northern Lights to see a bus boy grooving to some funky beats! And they actually had a disco ball going!
