youtube, the highs and the lows.

I don't know how even I allow myself to forget about this guy in this ADD'ed out age of technology and internet savagery. Somehow, I think it's all part of Andrew WK's genius in that he manages to slip out of my subconsciousness every few months, only to re-remerge out of nowhere with the same sense of excitement and glee I felt the first time this genius entered my life....all over again.

Which sure was needed, after curiosity, boredom and Scene Magazine's blog led me to this little youtubed Pandora's Box of horror and instantaneous depression. See below.

So Thanks Scene, for somehow subconsciously leading me back to happiness, only after dragging me through a Canadian digital forest of terror my grand children's children will have to exorcise from their scarred minds in therapy, and I shall be forced to relive through sleepless nights, again and again. Or until the pearly gates allow me in, and the video for "Party Hard" probably plays on loop for eternity, and the pizza is free. I hope.



DILLAGENCE is here! Download it if you haven't already at mickboogie.com. High fives to Mick and Busta for putting together another spectacular piece of music and keeping Dilla's legacy alive and well.



From Mr. Busta Rhymes mouth...er, keyboard; after taking a look at this mixtape cover. Stoked is right.

high fives mean you're makin' money

The fact that it's Friday night usually puts me in good enough a mood, but the news I just received concerning another new project I'll be working on has shot that shit straight through the ceiling. News & work will be posted on the super secret ninja news wire as soon as circumstances permit!

Also, See Planet Terror.
That's all I got for now. Have a nice weekend!


Every Time I Think I'm Out...

Every time I think I've reached the great white haze at the end of this grand new interweb, I stumble upon a new network I just have to be a part of. For some reason we love making up screen names, passwords, and the opportunity to flaunt what tv shows and bands we like in a tabled format. And by "we", maybe I just mean "I". At any rate, Behance is a worthy exception with a very fluid and intuitive interface and, while still kind of small, a pretty talented pool of creatives. Also, what's cool is it doesn't limit itself to designers, it welcomes people of all creative inclinations.

I'm still populating my page and filling it up with stuff, but if you deem yourself a creative person and looking to find like minded real-life talented people that don't try to hock you spam giftcards or webcam shows, come aboard.

Shimmy Shimmy Ya......

With an approach that was acrobatic, mercurial, spastic and soulful; while always maintaining a brutal honesty; Russell Jones aka Big Baby Jesus aka Osiris aka Ol' Dirty Bastard aka....? extended himself beyond even the revered status of being a pillar of the Wu-Tang Clan, and for that matter all boundaries of hip hop, to leave his unique and unforgettable mark on an entire generation. Rather than try to further encapsulate a career and personality that defies mere words and James Lipton-esque adjectives, our good friends at YouTube have supplied a somewhat better and more vivid idea below.

Today, rather on the day he was born than on the day he died, I welcome you to join me in celebrating the life of a true original. Rest in Peace ODB.


"Even the Stars Up Here In The Sky Look Like A Mess"

Just finished this poster for Angels & Airwaves...the show is not until next year, but never too early for some faux 3-D hijinx. Actually, next year is about 1 month and a half away. Nevermind, enjoy.



While 2007 will not go down in the books as one of the most miserable years in Cleveland sports history, my beloved metropolis still remains starved for a championship and the accompanied parade/car tipping/trophy hauling. However, last night, a lone soul-patched man would rise from the ranks of the relative midwestern unknowns to claim his place along side the all-time culinary greats as The Next Iron Chef.

So here's to you, Chef Symon, for doing your part and holding it down for Cleveland America and high end snacks. One needn't be a seasoned foodie, or the chairman; to savor in this triumph either, just someone who knows a warrior when they see one. And while I didn't take to the streets of Tremont, shirtless, hooting and hollering; it made the memories of drives, fumbles, shots and rivers afire that much more distant.




A quickie I designed, but a goodie - flyer for LA DJ Steve Aoki @ Touch Supper Club in Cleveland. Also featuring Mick Boogie, Terry Urban and more good dudes.
