Type Life

I just got back from the opening night of TypeCon, a conference on yes, type, which is taking place here in L.A. this year. It featured an hour-long documentary on a man who made and cut letters for a living, from sketching them out on paper to carving them in miniature form on metal blocks,...
Third Time's A Charm

Third Time’s A Charm

I am hands down in love with anyone who is fervently and genuinely passionate about something. Whether it be for video games at last week’s E3, or film buffs who have slaved for months or even years to show their film at the current LA Film Festival (myself included, for a film I worked on...
Ride

Ride

My weekend was a quiet, quaint suburban affair, thanks for asking. Prior to making it out to the SGV, we stumbled upon the Amgen Tour Festival going on near LA Live, where I snapped this photo.
Los Angeles, I'm Yours

Los Angeles, I’m Yours

Bad things always happen to me in Hollywood. Belligerent drunks harassing me at dive bars. Canadian women rear-ending my car at a stop light. A red stop light. I still braved the trip out to catch Poketo’s Los Angeles I’m Yours show at Space 15 Twenty last Saturday. It was a conglomeration of flea market...
French toast at Louie (Not fried chicken at the festival)

French toast at Louie (Not fried chicken at the festival)

Were you someone that was NOT at the LA Street Food Fest? It goes without saying that the festival was a smashing success. It looked like everyone and their momma knew about it and decided to make their way downtown on Saturday. This was the line I found myself falling in when I walked over...
L.A. Weekend: Street Food at the Studios

L.A. Weekend: Street Food at the Studios

Street food. (LA Center) Studios. Saturday. All the food trucks you could ever want will be at LACS this weekend for the LA Street Food Fest. Pretty cool spot for such an event, if you ask me. Not only do they shoot and produce movies and shows here (Mad Men, anyone? Also noticed it was...
2009 in L.A. (and Elsewhere), Uncut

2009 in L.A. (and Elsewhere), Uncut

2009 was not one of my better years, but it did have its moments, and I have to thank this blog for giving me some incentive to explore this city of mine. Here are a few shots from last year that never got their time here:
A Hello Kitty, Hello Ro Birthday

A Hello Kitty, Hello Ro Birthday

Did you know that Hello Kitty and I have the same birthday? Royal/T in Culver City threw a big birthday bash in her honor, so I naturally went to steal what spotlight I could. It’s called Three Apples, which is apparently how much Hello Kitty weighs in fruit. Mmm hmm. Pretty much everywhere you turned,...
L.A. Chic, Spanish Fashion

L.A. Chic, Spanish Fashion

Dress Code: L.A. Chic, one of the requirements for Zara’s Opening Party last night in Hollywood, and it’s safe to say that everyone brought it. Not one ironic hipster getup in sight. This is the sixth Los Angeles location for the Spanish fast fashion chain and the closest to downtown (and only a Metro Red...
Remember the time

Remember the time

BF and I both entered into the lottery for the Michael Jackson memorial, since we live a mere mile away from the Staples Center, where it was to be held. We got the expected rejection email on Sunday, but early Monday morning, BF got another email saying he was chosen out of the millions for...
Rock with you MJ

Rock with you MJ

I have a bunch of updates to share, but guess where I was today???
