All Decked Out

The TV Guide

The 4th of July is a day filled with fireworks, BBQs and the general outdoors … none of which I partook in at all yesterday. I got wrapped up in computer work yesterday, which got stretched out by my spending an inordinate amount of time DJing the I ♥ The 80′s room on turntable.fm, and … well … that was my day. On the plus side I managed to get a lot of work done but on the down side, I sat in front of my computer all day/afternoon/night long. More »

Move Over Jem, There’s A New Hologram In Town

Yesterday afternoon, Darion and I made our way downtown to attend the 2011 Anime Expo going on at the Convention Center this weekend so that we could attend the Hatsune Miku concert. Hatsune Miku, you ask? Well, she is the world’s first hologram popstar. She is a computer generated singer who has been all the rage in Japan for the past few years. Last night’s concert was her first ever here in the US. As a big Jem and the Holograms fan from back in the day, there was no way I was gonna miss seeing this real life hologram concert. More »

I basically was planning to be a Loser of Friday Night on my couch but after I heard that the amazing Amanda Palmer was DJing in the Losers of Friday Night on their Computers room on Turntable, I had to join in the fun. The room was packed with awesome people, including author Neil Gaiman, and the music was fun as Hell. In the history of the LOFNOTC, it was prolly the best night of all. More »

DJ TV

The TV Guide

Last night, David and I met up with our friends Gillian and Tim for a DELICIOUS dinner at Casa Vega in Studio City, CA. It had been a few weeks since we’ve gotten to hang out with G & T so we made sure our double date was a fun one. After we supped our faces off, we went over to their new home to see how they’ve settled in and we fell in LOVE with their beautiful new home. All in all, it was a great night.

This morning has been a bizzy one for me … particularly because I spent way too many hours DJing at turntable.fm More »
