been doing a lot of driving lately and decided that i might try to take an epic road trip around the country at some point. this road trip also needs to involve as many major league ballparks as possible.
fail blog is still hilarious
decided to get a new car in 2009. stay tuned for more on that.
currently obsessed with a korean talent show called star king. if you had no idea what was going on you'd swear it was a kids show but it airs in prime time for adults! nutty.

well it looks like the mystery has finally been solved thanks to this sweet article from cnbc.com. turns out he wrote "fuck face" on the bottom of the bat himself and didn't realize he was using the bat he used for the fleer photo shoot. to make matters even more hilarious he claims that fleer "enhanced" the words on the bottom of the bat so they could be read more clearly. one less cold case for the world to solve...

so a guy posts a craigslist ad telling people to show up dressed as a road construction worker outside of a bank of america branch at a specific time. then robs the bank (wearing the same outfit of course) and makes his getaway down a creek (or crick if you're from downstate illinois) in an inner tube. when the cops show up there's just a bunch of dudes hangin out by the bank that fully match the description. pretty genius if you ask me.
don't believe me? read about it here.

so this guy gave a stellar interview at the RNC (it's best to just watch for yourself cause the highlights wouldn't do it any justice), and then went back to his fancypants hotel and got roofied and robbed, presumably by a sarah palin lookalike. ok i might've made that last part up.
anyway, read the entire story here. it's totally worth the 5 minutes of your time...

well i think this pretty much sums it up.
on the jumbotron at soldier field, playing the super bowl shuffle.
many thanks to my friends at nike, fall out boy, darkroom demons, angels and kings chicago, st. alfred (for the dope fitted) and all the amazing people i had the good fortune to spend time with this weekend...

then you click to the page and cnn can't seem to make up their mind about whether mattel got $40 mil or $100 mil in the settlement. despite being asian i'm not the world's greatest math whiz but i do know that there's a huge fucking difference between $40 mil and $100 mil. $60 mil to be exact. is it too much to hire a retarded monkey intern to copy edit this garbage (no offense to retarded monkeys).
here's the kicker though, the image that accompanies the story is neither a picture of barbie nor a bratz toy but a fucking robot bug. this is about when my brain began to explode in utter disbelief.
cnn.com staffer: well boss, it's not barbie or a bratz but it IS a kind of toy. close enough right?
cnn.com editor: i don't know man, i'm too busy trolling tmz for some front page news stories. let's run with it!
seriously man, this is where a large contingent of our country's population gets its news from. can we at least get someone over there to give half a flying fuck???!!!
UPDATE: the actual amount of the settlement was $20 million. not 40 or 100. cnn.com would be better off if it was being run by barbie, bratz, or even that stupid robot bug toy that looks like a crab.
totally bananas. here's a 30 second clip. worth every penny of the $1.49 it costs to buy the video on itunes...

apologies for the recent lack of blogging activity. i've been spending the better part of the last month wandering around LA and san diego, dj'ing parties (some funny, some really hilarious), and following the olympics. now that they're over everyone can get on with their lives...except for the tae kwon do ref up top who got kicked in the head after a bad call. oops!
other things i have been obsessed with lately include:
re-attempting to play tennis (fun)
gallery 1988's crazy for cult 2 show
anything and everything kaws
trying to eat at every korean restaurant in koreatown. this one could take a while...
i'm working on a new end of summer mix that i believe will be distributed via the standard blog so keep your eyes peeled for that.
oh yeah, i did a photo shoot with the amazing and talented kevin ou and the photos turned out amazing. head on over to my somewhat-out-of-date myspace page to check them out...and don't forget to add me as a friend.

everyone who knows me knows how much i love sneakers and everyone who knows i love sneakers knows how much i love nike so i was stoked when they asked me to DJ the human race event in chicago which ends at soldier field.
the nike+ human race is basically the world's largest organized race, a 10K run taking place in 25 cities worldwide on 8.31.08. to make things even bigger they're getting some crazy musicians to perform at each concert site including kanye, all american rejects, and my dudes in fall out boy. nike is anticipating over a million people either running in one of the organized races or at home through nike+ which could make this the single largest sporting event in history. amazing!
check out the website for more information and sign-up details...see you in the chi ya'll

in other news, i'm having a blast so far in LA. hung out all day on set at FNMTV and met some really great people. i'm going to be DJ'ing in their new backstage green room starting next week and i'm really excited about that. if you're ever able to sneak backstage you'll find me spinning my favorite jams and trying to get people to drink all the free booze. good times!
i had the unique fortune of driving around LA in joe t's smart car. in case you don't know, the smart car is europe's latest export. basically it's a golf cart with a roof and a tiny little engine that gets the thing going up around 60 MPH if you are brave enough to push it that far. me, i mostly got lost in beverly hills and drove around in circles listening to david banner. i got lots of funny looks from a-holes driving hummers so at least there's that...
also in the works is an august DJ residency in the san diego area. more to come on that later for all you people a few hours south of here...

to commemorate the beautiful wedding of my friends i had some buddies at nike help cook up these dunk hi's limited to 2 in the world (one for him, one for her).
royal purple, black, and white with contrast stitching with gum soles. the shoes alone are fresh but add lasering on the outside heel (pw in infinity on high font, as on ashlee's font, and the date of wedding) and these make for a very sentimental pair of dunks. (big big thanks to ashley "the tom" for doing the font layout for the laser). there's a cool inscription embroidered on the inside of each tongue but we'll keep those private.
congrats you two!

it looks like all the attention from the blogosphere and the phone calls to aldermen in the city really made a difference and as a result, the ordinance is being tabled. that doesn't mean it's dead but now the city will hear out people's opinions from the entertainment community before trying to sneak some bogus legislation through. whew!
so it looks like the city of chicago is at it again, this time trying to pass legislation THIS WEDNESDAY MAY 14 that would effectively shut down DIY shows in small clubs across the city.
please take a few minutes to educate yourself about this ordinance by clicking here.
also, if you are a chicago resident i urge you to contact your alderman and voice your opposition. if you're not quite sure who to call visit this website and it will point you in the right direction.

but seriously, do they have any copy editors over there? surely there's at least one dude hired to add the letter "u" everytime the word "favorite" or "flavor" pops up in a story who can make sure they find a better word to describe this species of bird other than "tits"

i don't know a whole lot about the DC social scene but apparently the white house correspondent's dinner is a huge deal and takes place, logically enough, at the white house. people wear tuxes and eat a fancy meal and the president gets up and reminds the crowd that hey, crusty old white politicians can be funny too sometimes.
then everyone leaves with their wine-from-dinner buzz in full effect for the after parties, which is where the fun really happens. i was invited, along with a certain mr. pete wentz to dj the event. easier said then done when the crowd looks like this:
these people are NOT getting down to the new TI track so i had to keep it very white and 80's. big highlights included new kids on the block, madonna, and inxs. also, white people, like the guy below, love the song "she drives me crazy" by fine young cannibals.
i've been known to knock back a few adult beverages to get loose while i'm spinning but saturday night definitely called for a little extra imbibing since it was a little more difficult to get the crowd moving. i do like me some veuve.
pete came up and did his thing. we are bad photographers but the yellow tshirt is genius (honorable mention for the cardigan).
towards the end of the night, a nice drunk man handed us the following request:
can't argue with that one.
other things that went down that are not pictured include:
*pete wentz stage dive
*perez hilton actually looking classy
*met the newly crowned miss usa very briefly. she seemed like a sweet girl.
*rosario dawson and craig ferguson in da house
*lots of white people getting drunk
big props to the fine folks at capitol file magazine for taking care of me and inviting me to dj the shindig. hopefully we'll do it again next year...

all hail the super genintari, possibly the greatest gaming console ever made (for those of us that grew up in the late 80's/early 90's). some guy made the thing himself and it only took him "several years" to finish. now you can play dr. mario on nes and nhlpa '93 hockey for genesis (possibly the greatest sports game of all time) all on the same machine!

so according to this enlightening article from the sydney morning herald (slow news day, australia?) scene kids and emo kids are two different species of bored white suburban kids with way too much time and disposable income on their hands. they also hate each other and enjoy watching people stare at them. it's no wonder people are staring, my 5 year old niece dresses up to play princess and doesn't look NEARLY as ridiculous as these 13 year olds do on a daily basis. so far this misunderstanding about subcultures has not escalated to violence like the punk-emo wars in mexico but one can only hope...
who's to blame for this mess? clearly the internet, or more specifically this wiki-how-to article. and since when is the word "niggz" scene lingo? last i checked that was more than vaguely racist. either i'm old and out of touch or people are really dumb.

somewhere in the middle of this mess appears the song "contagious" which finds mr. biggs returning home one day to find his lady in bed with none other than r. kelly. of course the ensuing music video is amazing but not nearly as amazing as the florda a&m university marching band performing the damn song at a halftime show. are you kidding me?

A Los Angeles judge on Thursday (February 28) issued a default judgment against Bone Thugs-N-Harmony after they failed to contest a lawsuit brought against them by a Japanese concert promoter. According to KNBC 4 in L.A., World Mix Entertainment filed suit against the group after they missed two December 2006 concert dates in Nagoya and Okinawa. A contract submitted with the suit confirmed that the promoter had agreed to pay the group $25,000 per show, $10,000 for a photo shoot and cover expenses for travel and promotions. The company also agreed to meet special requests made by the group, such as providing a “big sack of marijuana” and bottles of Hennessey and Miller Genuine Draft beer. When the group failed to board their flight from Los Angeles International Airport, the shows had to be canceled. Since the Ohio based group failed to respond to the suit, U.S. District Judge Dean Pregerson awarded World Mix a total of $205,510.40.

the anti-energy drink that comes in a purple can. now all of america's white, teenage youth can be just like their favorite chopped and screwed rapper heroes without the pesky side effects (such as unintentional leaning, a fucking great time, and in some cases death)
check out their website. usually i would embed the link in another word but the URL is just too good: http://sippinsumdrank.com
seriously, someone send me some of this stuff...
NME reports that Noel Gallagher is selling his Ibiza holiday home – because he can’t stand to live near James Blunt, who owns a nearby pad, anymore.
According to The Sun’s Bizarre column, Gallagher has put the £5.5million villa on the market, saying that he can’t stand living there in the knowledge that Blunt is nearby making terrible music.
While this alone makes him easily in the top 5 on the World's Biggest Asshole list, I figured if we put a magnetic dog ribbon on him he would be guaranteed #1 status.

some douchebag that works for a radio station found a pretzel shaped like the virgin mary in a bag of rold gold pretzels. what would jesus do? sell it on ebay of course!
what blows my mind is not that the person is selling it cause let's face it, we'd all cash in on this thing if we could. but the listing has been active less than a day and there are already 55 bids with a price of over $6000! does the auction winner also win a punch in the face with their high bid?

patrick co-hosted this year and did a great rendition of the police classic "walking on the moon"
out of nowhere, seal (the singer, not the animal) decided he wanted a piece of the action and performed "rebel, rebel", "wind cries mary", and "fly like an eagle". this is easily my favorite patrick stump related photo of all time.
as the night wore on i got progressively more intoxicated and less concerned with taking photos but the highlight of roots jam session (2nd half) is a tie between standing 10 feet away from prince and mc lyte bringing up doug e. fresh to perform "la di da di". sick.
very big props to tina and sarah from the roots camp for putting on such an amazing event 5 years running!

spontaneous pricing of everyday item, typically at an unusual markup.
"$4.99 for a vitamin water and a pack of gum? i just got bodega'd by that korean shop owner!"

do you really need 6 fucking ribbons on your soccer mom van to show your patriotism to the world? oh wait, that blue one says "I LOVE MY PITBULL". is your pitbull suffering from breast cancer while fighting in iraq? i didn't think so. you win the asshole of the year award! god bless the usa for giving us this ignorant moron, i'm sure all the troops and breast cancer survivors will be PSYCHED that you think your pitbull is just as important as they are.

now might be a good time to mention that there was no costume contest on the cruise.
there was a sweet, all filipino cover band on the boat that eric and i decided to check out. what you have to understand is that they were doing perfect, note for note covers of everything from the bee gees to guns n' roses. guy with the red ibanez was shredding guitar solos! of course when they asked if there was a drummer in the house i had to make sure eric got up there.
the night eventually turned into a cover band free for all with michael from endeverafter getting up to play guitar with vince neil singing "livewire". definitely a highlight of the cruise...
...for this guy!
we decided to walk around cozumel for a bit and came across this amazing van with a plastic shopping bag for a gas cap. maybe it's one of those things that's just funnier in person.
we also got this sweet mexican cop to take some photos with the endeverafter guys. paging erik estrada...
this is kinda like the hessier version of when you go to six flags and the boyfriend and girlfriend are wearing matching outfits.
all in all the cruise was a great experience. met a lot of interesting people and had an amazing time with the endeverafter guys. thanks to alan koenig for taking care of us all weekend!
