Stevio...LA LA Lovin' It?

I'm British-born Chinese from Bristol, UK. I’m LA-based. I’m a hip hop aficionado. After 15 years in London I moved to LA to pursue a new career and outlook on life.

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. In 2011, I had my first interviews published. Today, I’m keeping busy with music, art, photos and writing.

Block Paaarty

Ja, Britt and I went to see Naama in her new revamped Reserve LA store on Fairfax which she now co-hosts with FreshJive. It's cool to have clothes in there, but the books stocked have changed and now I'm not sure what I'd ever buy there. Still the clothes were kinda 'fresh'.

Up the street there was a block party. Literally, the street was blocked off and a DJ played tunes as a huge BBQ was cooking up brats and burgers. The stores were open and a bunch of the trendiest, cutest girls rolled up to hang out on a sunny Monday Labor Day afternoon. Nice.

Britt poked holes in the whole sneaker culture brain-washing. Check out the Nikes she's holding in the new FCLA sneaker store on Fairfax: "these are ugliest pair of sneakers EVER!" Hahahha! There were a whole heap of retro Air Jordans in there for $200-450. "Why are these popular? What do these people think of the Third World labor used to make their sneakers...? I don't wanna wear Air Max 95 from when I was at high school..."
