The back-sto­ry:

Tony D here.

Last week i received a jel­ly in the post sup­pos­ed­ly from Dan Wieden. Sealed inside the jel­ly was a plas­tic box with a mem­o­ry stick in it. On load­ing, it played a film of Dan ask­ing me to hire the per­son who real­ly sent the jel­ly.

Talk about effort! The appli­cant had even done his home­work on my jel­ly wob­bling activ­i­ties. His port­fo­lio was also attached. If i’m hon­est the film and appli­ca­tion caught my atten­tion more than the work did, but still worth a cup­pa for all that effort.

Good job Yann! Enter­tain­ing and cre­ative indeed.

PS. Even the Youtube account was on point: “DanWiedenOf2015″ =)

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.
