Memos from May 2011


Eventful Weekend with Rhythm Natives in SF

My bro and his bro­hams, the Rhythm Natives, went to vis­it the Bay Area this past week­end. They were part of Bam­bu’s Smug­glers Tour in SF. I had the oppor­tu­ni­ty in tak­ing some pho­tos from both their shows: Fri­day, May 20th at 111 Min­na Gallery; and Sat­ur­day, May 21st at Rock­it Room.

Luck­i­ly, we sur­vived The Rap­ture or I wouldn’t have been able to get these post­ed. =)

Pon de Floor

What is so addict­ing with this dope-ass beat?!

I heard it first with Major Lazer’s “Pon de Floor”.

Then lat­er last year in 2010, Did­dy-Dirty Money’s “Ass On The Floor”.

And recent­ly, Beyonce’s “Run The World (Girls)”.

What­ev­er it is—dope beat is dope.

Daikokuya

Lots of ramen spots in DTLA. So which one to go with? Well, the 3 I like head­ing to when the stom­ach is yearn­ing for some would prob­a­bly be:

  1. Daikokuya
  2. Kouraku
  3. Oro­chon

But I won’t real­ly get into all 3, this post is all about Daikokuya. I’ve always want­ed to go but the long wait just wasn’t some­thing I can do dur­ing the mul­ti­ple attempts in Lit­tle Tokyo.

Screenstagram

Screen­sta­gram—pret­ty cool screen­saver for Mac OSX.

Screen­sta­gram dis­plays pho­tos from Insta­gram. It can show you your friends’ pho­tos or pho­tos from the Insta­gram pop­u­lar feed, which con­tains high­ly rat­ed pho­tos from across the Insta­gram com­mu­ni­ty.

Here’s a video of it doing its thing.
