After a couple of weeks in beta, Flickr’s newly redesigned homepage hits live. I like it. I have gotten used to the new stuff at least, and it proves to be successful in giving more info as well as finding things easier.
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.
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.
I woke up early on a nice Saturday morning to go to the City and meet up w/ the homie Mike B.. There, we headed straight to Nob Hill’s Fairmont Hotel—the start of 2008’s Gumball 3000 Rally. It was definitely an experience to see, hear and feel.
