- Marketing Driven Creation.
There has always been the debate about how “Art” should be created. Plenty of “artists” claim art is not something that should ever be created with it’s profitability in mind. It’s always said that commercialism ruins the art, whether it be painting, photography, music, film, writing, etc. We got a big dose this year of [...]
- Top Singles of 2009.
This is the yearly series of top lists of the year that is leaving. Singles usually stand out from an album in a way in which a truly spectacular single (or two) can carry a mediocre album and make it good, or in some cases can make a great album seem mediocre by not living [...]
- A Rainy Day Full Of Summer Albums.
What a better way to kick off rain in LA, than to listen to pop albums (and some good old Americana)? Sherwood – Qu – iTunes I’ve know the Sherwood guys for years, dating back to working on their first full length when they were on Sidecho. They write some ridiculously catchy songs with gorgeous [...]
- A Little Update & Something For The Ears.
So I’ve been a resident of the “Ciudad” of Los Angeles for a whopping 4 weeks now, and I believe this is the first Friday night that I have stayed in. I owe that mostly due to the fact that I have great friends and way more people close enough for a last minute hang [...]
- DC Gymkhana Two Infomercial.
I still claim that Rally Car racing is more exciting than any other motorsport. Why? Because people race over every surface and regularly hit trees and roll over, plus it’s so crazy you need a navigator. Let’s face it, if you need to be in a car chase, you want a rally car driver driving [...]
- What’s So Great About Bob Dylan?
I honestly don’t get Dylan. He’s supposedly the most heralded songwriter alive, he’s supposedly this iconic standard that has experienced and found success through the entirety of the music industries existence. I have very good friends of mine who think this man is the most amazing singer/songwriter ever. People believe in this guy on an [...]
- The Record Life.
So a while back, I worked on a little logo for an artist called “The Record Life” from AZ. Super good dude, and makes some great music. You can hear a new song, here. Anyway, it was a fun project to come up with something clean and simple to brand TRL with, and I was [...]
- My Blog And I Broke Up, We’re Trying To Get Back Together.
My blog got all mad at me a few weeks ago, because I hadn’t taken it out in a few weeks, and because I hadn’t called in days, and the only thing it saw from me was a bunch of Twitter updates. So we broke up, we will see if we can be friends, and [...]
- Isn’t It Funny How Artists Ignore Artistic Progress.
So today I was reading a few weeks old blog by a band I very much respect and am a huge fan of. I won’t name them, because it has nothing to do with the band, maybe a little to do with what they were saying (also I’ve heard a ton of bands saying lately), [...]
- Gene Simmons Pwns Lefsetz.
Gene Simmons, you know of Kiss, was up in Canada talking about his record label. Call me crazy but I have always liked Gene. He is insane, and egotistical, but he believes in himself, and whatever he does and he realises failure will only be at his blame. It’s maybe not the way to go [...]
- An East Coast Update.
So I’m sipping on some Dunkin’ Donuts coffee, and it’s quite lovely. That’s pretty much going to be the best part of this update, for some of you. I’m sitting in JFK, it’s snowing outside, it looks gorgeous. This is the second time I have been in New York in the past week. I head [...]
- Hey Remember Me? Or, The Least Coast Awaits.
I used to blog here. My name is Randall. How are you? So I have been ridiculously busy in the last few weeks, and there are good reasons for that. I have a ton of work, and I will be over on the East Coast for a couple weeks. Why? Why not! I will be [...]
- Early Zeroes Nostalgia.
This would be another installment of “Maps And Notes” however, this one really only took place in the city I lived in. San Diego, circa 1999-2001. There was a lot of great different music being played around then. Remember this was the peak of Blink 182, so not much else besides Blink, UL, Fenix TX, [...]
- Music You Should Like.
So Friday & Sunday (not, Saturday, because Saturday I drove to AZ and back, well I passenger’d mostly) I was helping my good friend Rohan out on his battle with MySpace and code. MySpace, albeit a great company to work with (yes, I’ve cashed a couple of their checks), can be kind of a mess [...]
- Reason #182809 Why I Love Letterman.
Vinyl. The man has musical performers on his show and doesn’t hold up the CD, he holds up vinyl. Gorgeous, circles of black, grooves of uncompressed, vinyl. And it’s not just once in a while It’s always. It must be show policy. I wonder if a band is allowed to play if they can’t get [...]
- Awesomenents, The Cure For All.
So this weekend I was in and out of an ongoing funk that I would like to attribute to the still ongoing pounding in my head. All weekend I woke up feeling unrested, and chose to blame it on falling asleep weirdly to whatever I fell asleep to. At some point yesterday after complaining about [...]
- The It Girl.
So anyone who knows me, probably doesn’t know I love “Gossip Girl”, I don’t admit it to many. However, in my defense, it’s a great show with some of the best writing on television. Anything Kristen Bell is involved with pretty much has my vote, anyway. That being said, anyone who knows me, knows my [...]
- MuteMath + Jeremy Larson = Leno.
MuteMath is a simply amazing band. I was fortunate to see them play live a few years back, and it was everything a performance should be. Some bands just get it. These guys made a rather brilliant video that you might be familiar with, then one upped that by recreating it on Kimmel. My good [...]
- Things That Suck About The People’s Choice Awards.
I didn’t want to do this, but it’s pretty much necessary. 1. Queen Latifah. 2. The whole, “high five the people as you go to the mic” thing. 3. Kid Rock over Coldplay. 4. The constant “Obama won the election” references. Like the actors did anything. 5. Ellen over Letterman. 6. Robin Williams. 7. Two [...]
- The United Plates Of America.
So a few years back when I was the Creative Director of The Militia Group, I had an intern. Actually I had quite a few interns, but most were local and weren’t there for something like 2-3 months. This particular intern came all the way out to California to live and show up every day [...]
- It’s The “Of The Year” Time Of Year. Part III (EPs).
This will be an ongoing journey through the best of 2008. Thank you for caring. Best Songs of 2008 1. Third Eye Blind – Red Star 2. Mike Dunn And The Kings Of New England – The Edge Of America* 3. The Jealous Sound – Got Friends 4. The Summer Set – …In Color 5. [...]

- Saving Detroit.
I’ve been meaning to post this for a few days. The other day Kyle and I were sitting around talking about our distaste for NASCAR and distaste for the Detroit bailout. Let’s face it, the only people to blame for the Big Three failing are the people in charge, the people who put them in [...]
- And Here I Am.
So life has been crazy, I haven’t blogged in weeks (yet somehow people still come here), and I am finally feeling back on top of things. Here is the wrap-up: I was sick for a good solid 2 weeks, most of it came from breathing pure ash from some of the lovely fires in Southern [...]
- Less Politics, More Free Music.
So we elected an African American, and California has more uneducated and religious voters than I thought (I’m not insulting anyone, the exit polls showed those voting Yes on 8 were in fact both those things). Let’s all relish in the opportunity of being a country that can once again innovate and lead this world. [...]
- Got Friends?
The Jealous Sound, where do I start? This band holds such an emotional attachment to myself. One song off Kill Them With Kindness was pretty much the anthem for an entire relationship. When I was at The Militia Group and J Sound was signed the entire office was ecstatic. Over the years I was there, [...]
- Politics And Baseball.
The baseball season is almost, finally over, maybe. One of my teams managed to not lose 100 games (barely), and the other finds itself in a tough playoff matchup with the Angels. I’m excited to see the BoSox battle the Angels (I typed this as “The Angles” the first time, and it made me laugh [...]
- An Open Letter To Dawson Leery.
Dear Dawson, It always pissed me off how you screwed things up with Joey. Sincerely, Randall P.S. Go to hell Pacey.
- Things For Your Eyes.
Earlier Today Chad Pearson sent over a link to this lovely video of Mike Dunn playing at an instore in the FLA. I have raved about how great “The Edge Of America” is before, but I’m gonna do it again. Watch this while you are downloading it from Amazon or iTunes. As a bonus to [...]
- Slam Crunk.
Do you like pop music? Do you like all those Hip Hop songs that make you sing along? Do you like amazing covers that combine the two into one? This is for you. Holiday Parade presents “Slam Crunk”, the newest in a bunch of white guys remixing through guitars and instruments to bring you a [...]
- Chargers Sign Lance Armstrong.
So I am one of those twittering people, and as I have discussed with most of my close friends, I don’t really “get it” either. But I do it, and every once in a while I sure am glad I am. Yesterday was one of those days. This was why.
- NBC & Heroes Sponsor Student Films.
Apparently the title of this post is true, because I said so, but not like college student films, we are talking high school, and we aren’t talking that rich private high school with the really great arts program. I love Heroes, it’s probably my favourite show on television (though HIMYM is pretty even), but this [...]
- Font Usage And Re-Usage.
Lately around my place we have been getting pretty into the new HBO mini-series “Generation Kill”, it’s based off a book by the same name, written by a reporter who was embedded with a Marine Batallion (First Recon, out of Camp Pendleton, CA). The book was fairly controversial for how it was received as well [...]
- PGM On Flavorpill And Filter Events.
Everybody’s favourite person Paul G. Maziar has a few of his events featured on Flavorpill, and one of them features a photo I took of Paul when we were in Mexico training to become Mariachis. He will be reading from his book “What It Is: What It Is” and Filter Magazine is presenting the events, [...]
- Back To Reality.
Well with the end of Summer vacations comes the unsettling return to work. I love work, but you do get a bit used to not having to know what day it is, and not really caring what small California highway you are on, or if there are bears along the way. Of course I tore [...]
Exactly a week from today P is for Panda will be having a little get together in the ATL to officially launch the label side of the Panda (I think this also will be one of the first places you can see the new line of Panda shirts, which I am still slacking on contributing [...]
- Stealing Signs.
So as I was getting prepared to let you all in on my next post, I came across an interview a friend of mine did with a blog I am a huge fan of. Mark Penxa, interviewed by Uni Watch about the “Stealing Signs” project. Mark and I worked together on a few projects back [...]
- Just A Warning.
If you speak negatively about John Mayer, especially failing to actually say anything to back up your opinion (which is wrong by the way) and calling him over-rated and that he knows nothing about music, you will be deleted from my life. You don’t have to like the guys music, you don’t have to even [...]
- Long Weekend Wrap-up.
These are the things that owned my life this past weekend: Happy Hour, The Summer Gin, Superbad Scrabble, Ice Cream Sandwiches, Honey Wheat Pancakes, Realising Every Better Than Ezra Song Is Trying To Be Another Band, PBR, 21-1 Pool Volleyball Games, Beach Boys, Burgers, Fireworks, Cool Runnings, Betting On Olympic Trials, Falling Asleep On Couches, [...]
- Extreme Urban Soccer.
This is so much cooler than the last 57 soccer games I have watched (which inevitably are the only 57 soccer games I have watched, though it was cool when that one dude told the other dude his sister was “a little too experienced” in the World Cup), however it’s not nearly as cool as [...]
- Mayer, May Not.
Dan Crittenden’s recent twitter post reminded me that I never posted the brilliance that is the following:
- U.S. Open Wrap-up.
I found it fitting not to publish this until the Open actually concluded, and seeing as Tiger just wrapped it up on the 19th hole today, this is long overdue: I was able to spend Father’s Day with my very own Father at the U.S. Open. It was a great day of golf, on a [...]
Anyone who can be in contact with Jessie Poland, please let her know I want to marry her. Mostly because of the words she sings (and probably didn’t even write). P.S. Jessie Poland is the real name of Charlotte Sometimes.
- Why John Mayer Is One Of My Favourite People On Earth.
Things like this: JM Takeover Of Gizmodo Liveblog Hey guys, John Mayer here. Are you guys excited? I’ve just commandeered the computer of my good friend, Jason Chen, who is also very very handsome. That means a lot coming from a guy like me. My other friend, Moby, is also here. Have you guys seen [...]
- Wake Up, Mr. West.
Last night I had the absolute privilege to see the best musical performance of my life. I can only describe it as a one man hip hop opera. One man on stage, the band/orchestra in the pit below, and one broken spaceship. Kanye West just constantly impresses me with each and every thing he does, [...]
- A Twist Of The Update Knob.
So I moved my Photography albums over to my .Mac account, and yes this includes my Photography Portfolio. You might be like, “What Photography Portfolio?” And my reply would be, “The one I was cheating on you with.” Anyway, here it is. I also have an iPhone gallery set up where I will upload pictures [...]
- Random Recommendations 6.2.08
Mates of State – Re-arrange Us Utterly amazing, the best album they have ever written. Chock full of hooks, sugary, angelic, hooks. Chip Kidd – The Learners I finally finished this on my trip up North. It’s a powerful book, anyone who went to art school or designs will probably enjoy it, though I think [...]
- Brand Tags.
From the world of “Weird things on the internet you aren’t sure what to do with”, comes Brand Tags. It’s an interesting sort of social interaction experiment I guess? Isn’t that what all of these sort of things are supposed to be? Anyway, it’s pretty fun for killing a few minutes. My personal favourite word [...]
A number of years ago in college, the fellow members of our secret society were in a computer lab, doing secret society things, when one of us stumbled upon a CD-R with the words “Y2KHAI” written on them. Since we were in a lab full of Apple’s we popped it in one and one of [...]
- Manny Ramirez Is My Favourite Ballplayer.
The reasons why are far too numerous to list. Basically Manny is awesome, the whole Manny being Manny is the most entertaining thing in baseball these days. A few days back Manny was talking about how he could/should win a Gold Glove for how he plays the Monster. He really does play it well, and [...]
- I Am Not A Library.
Yet. I accrue books at a rate equal to the exports of small countries. Setting aside the time to spend with a book is to many a luxury, I suppose. A moment to focus on words actually printed on white pages bound together without any connection to the internet. I still find myself battling to [...]
- 10 Ways Hillary Clinton Can Still Win.
. . . . . . . . . . (you get it, right?)
I sat down tonight to watch the first episode of the new season of This American Life. TAL is a program about people and their stories, it first aired as a radio program on public radio (which is where the sometimes infamous parrot story originated) and last year was turned into a television show by [...]
- Fenway Time Lapse
Lovely look at the crowd filing in, field being prepared, baseball being played, beer being drank, Manny being Manny, Red Sox winning, gorgeous day/night in Boston, crowd exiting in Time Lapse. Video by Tom Guilmette.
- AT&T Hotspots, Free For iPhone.
AT&T just opened up all their hotspots in the US to iPhone users. B&N, The ‘bucks and more, now free. You might remember a while back they gave free service to anyone who has their internet service, and pledged to open it up to mobile as well. They have finally done that latter. I am [...]
- So We Can Build Up Our Future.
I personally do believe, that everyone is familiar with Miss Teen South Carolina already, so we can save that link/video/quote. Anyone that listens to Jim Rome also knows how much he loves to play said audio clip, so it should come as no surprise that I found the following image on Rome’s friend Tom Hoffarth’s [...]
- I Don’t Know What This Is.
However it’s fairly cool. Oh, it is this. I believe what it does is take people’s Twitter’s from all over and randomly pulls in ones that use certain words in them. I still don’t know “what” Twitter is, but if I ever find out, I might think this is really amazing or something. This might [...]
- Los Angeles, On A Monday Night?
I usually don’t reserve my blog for things like this, however should anyone in the Los Angeles area be in need of an amazing evening, my good friend William Tell will be playing the Hotel Cafe at 8PM. It will be an amazing time full of pop songs, and people who have way more fun [...]
- Triple Header, Dual Coast.
I use iCal to keep track of my schedule, and I also use it to subscribe to my favourite sport teams schedules. It’s a handy little feature available for almost any team, and having these calendars sync with my iPhone gives me a constant connection to what said teams are up to. I have these [...]
- FOB Live iPhone Wallpaper.
I had a random moment of FOB fanboy-ism and combined it with my constant Apple fanboy-ism and made a little iPhone wallpaper. I’m a dork, no need to rub it in. Of course this is obviously based off their new “Live In Phoenix” CD/DVD art, which came out a few weeks back, and is surprisingly [...]
- Political Piledrivers.
Last evening, the next President of the United States, the leader of the free world, appeared on WWE’s Monday Night Raw. Yes all of the potential President’s, somehow, were conned into appearing on a wrestling show. Every last one of their campaign managers should be fired. Next up, the decision on the Democratic nomination, live [...]
- Darth Cheney Is Brilliant.
Dick Cheney absolutely stole the show at the Radio & TV Correspondents dinner last night. I’m sure he had a brilliant writer working for weeks on this material, but let’s face it the delivery is aces. My personal favourite is around the 3:50 mark, and it just gets better from there. If the last 8 [...]
- An Open Letter To Dodger Stadium.
Dear Dodger Stadium, You suck. Not because your stadium has 2 escalators in the whole place even though it was built on a hill, not even because you can only enter the stadium exactly where you are sitting, you suck for the fact that I cannot enjoy a game of baseball without almost dying. I [...]
- Oh, The Irony.
I found this brilliant advertisement on some website for the “Idiot Test”. It’s amazing when people are trying to get across a message on the topic of intelligence and then disobey the established rules of the English language. Is it an idiot test based on the fact no one intelligent would click on it? I [...]
- iPhone Optimized.
A few months back I made the switch to an iPhone optimized admin version of WordPress, so my Mobile posting would be easier. A few weeks back I added an iPhone version (basically just a stylesheet) of this entire blog you are reading. Those of you on iPhone’s already noticed the last one, unfortunately no [...]
- One More Day.
So a few years back Chauntelle DuPree from Eisley got together at a writing workshop with Zac Hanson and Jon Crosby from VAST to write/record. I’m not really sure the intricacies of it all, but from it came one of the most beautiful songs I have ever heard. Chauntelle stopped singing for Eisley a while [...]
- Sweded Tron.
First I should probably explain what “Swedeing” a movie is for those out there who aren’t familiar with the term. It all comes from Michel Gondry’s film “Be Kind Rewind” which is about a couple guys in a rental store who find themselves with a store full of erased tapes (that they caused). They decide [...]
- Sometimes I Take Pictures.
A few weeks back I spent a Saturday laughing hysterically, breaking into foyers and pointing my camera at a friend of mine. The goal for the day was some new publicity type shots for William Tell. William finally put a few of them up over at his MySpace (which he revamped) along with a new [...]
- Fantasy Baseball 2008.
It’s that time of the year again, baseball is upon us. I love baseball, but it’s hard to be really into every game, every day, every second, that’s why a fantasy league that you set the lineup once a week is perfect. Chad and I did this ESPN league a few years back, and we [...]
- Red Sox Mid-Season Exhibition Games.
Today we (Kyle, Brandon, Josh x3, Yoori and I) took the trek over to Dodger Stadium, which while it’s parking and entrance set up are the best designed public use facilities in Los Angeles (which still doesn’t say much), the rest of the stadium set up is turrrrrible (like Charles Barkley). Apparently someone there thinks [...]
- Things Change, Dawson, People Change.
James Van Der Beek has been making strange resurgences in my life lately. A few weeks back it was randomly coming across Varsity Blues on TV, in HD (so we had to watch). Just a few nights ago it was some drunken late night Dawson’s Creek viewing, and debating if we were on Dawson or [...]
- I Definitely, Didn’t, Not Find The Cloverfield Monster.
I know, I know… the boy who cried “I found the Cloverfield monster” strikes again. Don’t believe me, that’s fine, but remember how that whole “boy who cried wolf” thing ended. The destruction of New York City, that’s how. You tell me, if this isn’t the Cloverfield monster, what is it?
- I Hate Sarah Marshall.
The love affair with this film continues today, because I just realised I never passed along the link, yeah THE link, the one you need in your life, the one that made me happy, the one that saved that puppy from the burning fire, the one that invented Gin & Tonic’s. Yeah that one. Brilliant.
- Random Recs 3.22.08
Solea – Finally We Are Nowhere – Texas Is The Reason recorded one of the most perfect albums ever, Garret Klahn can do no wrong. Death Cab For Cutie – I Will Possess Your Heart (Single) – I started listening to this “single” and the vocals didn’t come in till the 4 minute mark, Death [...]
- Remembering, Forgetting Sarah Marshall.
So FSM comes out next month. I’m rather excited, and you may remember my earlier post about FSM, if not head over there to get filled in on what will either be my favourite film of 08, or the end of my crush on Kristen Bell. Recently in the village of Los Angeles the FSM [...]
I came across this lovely blog the other day, which makes fun of all the very apparent photoshop jobs done in marketing. This is the kind of stuff I thought only my friends and I geeked out over, well this stuff and fonts, and Rachel Bilson, who coincidentally is featured in a post at the [...]
- Reason #549607 Why I Love Google.
- Urban Meyer Is Amazing.
The Floriduh (SIC, Ed.) Gators won the National Championship not long ago, in two sports. They recently became pretty lame in both sports, but I really don’t expect that to last long (or I really don’t expect the current teams to survive if they keep this up). Basketball Coach Billy Donovan locked his players out [...]
- The Whatever Bias.
So last week I was reading this article on MSNBC.com, and I sort of found it an interesting read while at the same time something tripped me up about it. Finally over this past weekend I realised what it was: This is news? Let me get this straight, some guys theory based on the fact [...]
- Reason #371200 Why I Love David Letterman.
Last night on Letterman, he discussed Eliot Spitzer’s penchant for “banging whores”. Now Letterman has no problem with the practice, he just doesn’t want him doing it on the state’s time. He also took up issue with Spitzer debating what he will do now that the truth has come out, rather than step down immediately [...]
- Random Recs 3.11.08
We The Kings – We The Kings – Yes I love pop music, so sue me. Accepted – I still haven’t seen it, true. However I lied about seeing it last week, this weekend watched a good 45 minutes of it, and set the DVR to record it for next weekends viewing. Justin Long + [...]
- 1 Sign You Shouldn’t Hire This Guy.
So a few weeks back this was posted on the internet and has made its rounds, it has become pretty popular not because what the guy is saying is right (or necessarily wrong), but because of how he says it and how offensive he tries to be. When it comes to people who work on [...]
- The Steve.
Someone had way too much time on their hands, but for that I am thankful.
- SEO v LOL.
SEO, means Search Engine Optimization. Every competent web person is usually savvy with this term, and will tell you what you can do to increase the likelihood that someone finds you on the internet (or better yet, how you can pay them to optimize your page). Then there is the famous “Google Algorithm” and how [...]
Over the weekend I added some various, random, writings that span all the way back to 2002. For those of you not in the know, 2002 was when blogging was invented*, and I was right there changing the world. If you peruse these archives, you will find; early morning drives, Cheetah conservation, vague reminiscing, 11 [...]
- Do You Want To Lose A Few Brain Cells?
Then head directly here, it’s kind of amazing, it’s totally a train wreck, and you won’t leave for hours.
- Random Recs 2.26.08
Coconut Records – Nighttiming – So I got addicted to “West Coast” way late in the game, and the full album finally came last week, and yeah… I’m pretty much in love with this record. Wearing A Watch – After some six years without, I am back to telling time on my wrist. Scissors For [...]
- Amazing Campaign By-products.
I really cannot decide which is better: Barack Obama being my new bicycle; or Hillary Clinton being my new bicycle. However, I definitely know which candidate I would support by wearing baseball inspired campaign shirts.
- Michael Bay Gets His Oscar.
The Onion usually stays with stories I think are hilariously funny, yet leave me craving the 3-10 minutes I just lost to them back. This however is beyond hilarious and only left me wanting more.
- What It Is: What It Is.
My good friend and former roommate Paul G. Maziar once said the following: Paul G. Maziar “Banning AIM is like so ’01.” That however is a different story, for a different day. Paul wrote a book of words called What It Is: What It Is, and the best way to describe it is to write [...]
- Free Katie Holmes.
This should be the single battle cry for anyone against Scientology. Photo courtesy of Rob Sheridan, who did some amazing work on the NIN “With Teeth” photography.
- How To Flirt.
Who else finds this one of the most absolutely hilarious things ever? How To Flirt My thoughts upon first viewing: 1. “Hi” is a pick up line? 2. Being from Long Island is a “big red circle with a line through it”. 3. Shouldn’t a video that will be posted online about “how to flirt”, [...]
- Skateboarding Is Not A Crime.
Voluntary Manslaughter however is. Good thing for the driver that this guy made it. Skater Ollies Car on ShredOrDie.com
- Life Lessons 2.9.08
Excerpts from the lessons we all should have learned much sooner: #27356 Singing “Every Rose Has It’s Thorn” at karaoke when the only words you know are the title of the song, is never a good idea. #81279 Upon the bridge of “You’ve Lost That Loving Feeling”, when executing “The Move” (you know the one), [...]
- Starry Nights & Salty Seas Tour.
I recently did some work for my friends in Sherwood for their first headlining tour, dubbed Starry Nights & Salty Seas. The tour goes around the United Stated in vectors and along with Sherwood you can see The Matches or Houston Calls, The Higher and We Shot The Moon. The tour marketing art was based [...]
- Glow In The Dark.
Is it wrong that I’m looking forward to this tour more than anything this year? It is the absolute perfect line up to quench my inner urban self. I am officially forming a crew to journey with me to this event, bright all over printed hoodies and sweet kicks will be mandatory, call or write, [...]
- Clove Out Boy (or Cloverfield on High).
So the talent that is Peter Wentz wrote in his journal a week and a half back about how Cloverfield, or writer Drew Goddard, was in some way, shape, or form influenced by “Infinity On High”. Peter Wentz Drew Goddard, who we’re a big fan of, from buffy the vampire slayer and lost wrote this [...]
- Rob’s Party Mix.
A few days ago I managed to secure a copy of “Rob’s Party Mix”, which was given out at the NYC Cloverfield Party that was effectively Rob’s Party. Supposedly there are only a few hundred of these things, you know how I love “limited edition, hand numbered” items and collecting music, so this will be [...]
A few months ago I went to one of the West Coast premieres of a film called Helvetica in Laguna Beach. The film was directed by Gary Hustwit and is about, you guessed it, one of the most popular fonts ever, Helvetica. Kyle, Vincent and myself made the journey down to parts of the OC [...]
