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.

I'm king of deflation

"...Pushing the world into an economic spiral" that's what I'm doing by holding off on my purchases as prices get squeezed. I hear on the radio that, as I hold off from spending, I'm causing all manner of companies to tighten their belts until they starve. Yes, s-t-a-r-v-e!

Some things can't wait...$77 for Xmas shipping at the post office, $21 for a haircut, $45 for groceries...oh, an that dope Hit + Run t-shirt for $10 even though it's winter in LA. But, that new mobile phone can certainly be postponed (well, until I lose this one or RIM sort out the bugs in the Storm :) ) Yep, I'm at least the prince of deflation.

One essential that's always defied logic is gas (petrol). Right now it's at its lowest price since I arrived in the States four+ years ago. So why am I only only filling up 1/2 a tank at a time? Because prices are falling. This past weekend I paid $1.95 for a gallon of 91 premium. The week before it was $2.05, the week before get it. Tread lightly my friends.
