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.

Happy New Year - Times Square...the sleaziest block in America!!!

Happy New Year!!!

Here is the history of the rejuvenation of Times Square in the 1980s. Without this no one would be spending hours waiting for the ball to drop in Times Square. I remember my first trip to New York in 1988. 42nd street around Port Authority was still a bit grimy and the peep shows were still there.

I love Charlie Ahearn's home videos of the chaos and anarchy on the streets. I will leave this post with his classic quote:
"I think it's fantastic...I like the fact that it's a corporate wasteland of entertainment..." Charlie Ahearn.

Read an interview with Charlie Ahearn and his wife, Jane Dickson at Miss Rosen's blog.
And check the DVD out on Amazon or BrinkDVD.
