Kaws came to LA, but his "The Long Way Home" show was so flat. And I was so bored with it I only just edited my video from back in March and definitely had to spice it up with some classic dancehall to give it some flavor!
I'm British-born Chinese from Bristol, UK. I’m LA-based. I’m a hip hop aficionado. Back in the 80s I was a DJ. In the 90s I contributed to the world's first street style exhibition at London's Victoria & Albert Museum.
After 15 years in London I moved to LA to pursue a new career and outlook on life. Today, I’m keeping busy with music, art, photos and writing. LA lets me wear flip-flops year round and has given me an appreciation of Mexican food! Check my Hall/Fame.

What can $25 buy you? Well, in this economy a one-night stay at the Sahara in Vegas!
"LOS ANGELES – A moderate earthquake that jolted Southern California was felt by millions and sent at least one person to a hospital, but the region avoided significant damage and major injuries."
Where was I at 8.39pm on Sunday night when the magnitude-4.7 quake hit about 10 miles southwest of downtown Los Angeles and three miles east of Los Angeles International Airport? I was watching "Angels & Demons" at The Grove when there was a shudder. That's no "Rumblevision" I thought, but everyone stayed calm.
"The quake rattled the greater Los Angeles region for about 10 to 15 seconds and was felt as far south as San Diego, said USGS seismologist Susan Hough.
Glass broke at a Starbucks in Torrance, and one person there was taken to a hospital for treatment of minor injuries, Torrance Fire Department dispatchers said. The Newport-Inglewood fault was responsible for the magnitude-6.4 Long Beach earthquake in 1933 that caused 120 deaths and more than $50 million in property damage. The last damaging earthquake in Southern California was the 1994 magnitude-6.7 Northridge quake that toppled bridges and buildings."
Sometimes the flaws in the system make my head hurt. Excuse me for this slightly verbose and serious posting.
Ron Jeremy says "Happy US Mother's Day!" I've never seen any of this legend's films, but I did see a sad documentary on how he was trying to break into mainstream Hollywood...but was relegated to B-movies.

"It's got a very romantic vibe there, but do NOT bring your date if she's a vegetarian. Of course, if you love the Lodge [and therefore need to break up], you can always drop her using my favorite excuse: 'It's not you, it's meat'."

From the Sasabune sushi master comes this tiny strip-mall rawfishery, with "the exact same fish but for a lot less money."

The “Send Lawyers, Guns and Money” show featured work from Revok, Retna, Augor, and Pose. If you don't know these writers you may know them better as the bombers that 'customized' Takashi Murakami's MoCA exhibition billboard. Murakami-san loved it so much that he got it shipped back to Japan for his personal collection!
