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.

Never again will this lucky date come about...well, not in my lifetime...once every century!

The Chinese coordinated the Olympics around this date and Zhang Yimou pulled off a spectacular opening ceremony in Beijing with 15,000 partipants and $300 million?! Yes, 30x the budget of the Athens Olympics. Incredible and outrageous...way too much!

I recorded the Olympic ceremony and went out to another 8-08-08 inspired event in the neighborhood. The Japanese performance art band, The Boredoms, were in the driving seat of an 88-minute (actually they went on forever?!) drumming extravaganza in La Brea Tar Pits. 88BoaDrum was organized in a drum circle in the middle of the park allowed the 5,000-strong audience to have a 360-degree view of the drummers. I sat still and enjoyed my Trader Joe's picnic and beer.
