Wedding Blunder — Best Man Fails

With all the wed­dings that I have been going to late­ly, I just wish I don’t see this:

The groom should’ve just jumped in after the bride and the priest, and have every­one else jump in the pool to make the most of it. That would’ve been dope, fun­ny and mem­o­rable. The bride could feel bet­ter if any that way haha

Mr. Hyphen 2008


Mr. Hyphen 2008, orig­i­nal­ly uploaded by stechico.

I had the oppor­tu­ni­ty to shoot last night’s Mr. Hyphen 2008, a sig­na­ture event by Hyphen Mag­a­zine.

Back by pop­u­lar demand, Hyphen and the Oak­land Asian Cul­tur­al Cen­ter (OACC) present the 3rd annu­al Mr. Hyphen com­pe­ti­tion on Octo­ber 4, 2008, cel­e­brat­ing the men of the Asian Amer­i­can com­mu­ni­ty. Each year, Hyphen and OACC cel­e­brate Asian Amer­i­can men who devote them­selves to wor­thy com­mu­ni­ty caus­es. While struc­tured like a pageant with rounds of tal­ent, fash­ion and Q&A, Mr. Hyphen turns stereo­types on their heads in front of a sold-out crowd. Strik­ing a blow for equal-oppor­tu­ni­ty all-in-good-fun ogling, Mr. Hyphen is an ener­gy-filled evening of fun and char­i­ty. Rounds will be decid­ed alter­nate­ly by an audi­ence vote and by an illus­tri­ous pan­el of judges. The man who is crowned Mr. Hyphen wins a $1000 cash dona­tion to his non­prof­it orga­ni­za­tion.

Host­ed by writer/performer: Saman­tha Chanse

Con­grat­u­la­tions to all of the par­tic­i­pants, espe­cial­ly to Run­ner-up Mau­rice Seaty and Mr. Hyphen 2008 him­self, Aris­to­tle Gar­cia (pic­tured above respec­tive­ly). Spe­cial thanks go to Flickrite/Vaindeer/Hyphen Mag­a­zine’s Lan­lian for giv­ing me the oppor­tu­ni­ty to check it out and pho­to­graph. It was both enter­tain­ing and edu­ca­tion­al. Good times.

Update:
Speak­ing of Renais­sance, there seems to be a leak of an old col­labo that Q‑Tip did with D’An­ge­lo. Here’s the track “I Believe” which is rumored to be in the new album. Source via Press Play Fash­ion For­ward.

Adobe Creative Suite 4 — Launch Broadcast

Since writ­ing about the Adobe CS4 live web broad­cast a cou­ple of days ago, I was for­tu­nate enough to final­ly view it. Enjoy!

You may view the video at a high­er res­o­lu­tion via http://tv.adobe.com/#vi+f1556v1715. You may also find oth­er relat­ed videos on that page with regards to CS4. The ones I am inter­est­ed in see­ing would prob­a­bly be the fol­low­ing:

All I can say is that this is going to be one very nice Suite, and should be fun to play/work with.
