this past tuesday i returned to spin at TILLMANS. special shouts to Lil and Lautz for coming out! my boy Ant booked me for the gig and also showed me that i can review the set i played afterwards on serato, as I never plot my song list - and sometimes forget what i played. added bonus for you: you can see what I rocked, and go grab the tracks in your own time, if you'd like. so, here goes.

clouds. sunset. - with the phone

when i was working for nokia nseries - we did some cool stuff with phones related to art, like this : CANNES 2007

how we pitched the phones (aka 'multimedia computers') to artists was that they weren't replacements for your true equipment, but rather an option when you don't have it - because lets face it, we ALWAYS have our phone these days.

so, despite my owning and using my NIKON D80 (rather) (frequently), sometimes something occurs, and you want to -- NEED to capture it. this sunset was one of those times. so, i pulled out my nokia phone -- and played around with some of the camera settings - and these few shots were the result. not bad if i don't say so myself...

downtown LA

my friend Jaime took me to an area of Los Angeles i'd never been to.... downtown. she tells me that most people don't go to downtown. everyone goes to venice, hollywood...etc. she was nice enough to take me on a architectural tour. here are some photos i took with my point and shoot. (new nikon coolpix - not bad for $99, i must say)

three weeks ago, i journeyed out to the new Yankee Stadium. as B and i got off the 4 train, i shuffled my way to the back staircase, as my dad and i always had used that sortie - assessing that it was the quickest. after taking 30 steps or so, it hit me -- the Yanks don't play in that stadium anymore. the new one is the other direction. it was a moment of confusion, but as shawn offered when i made my second trip last nite to the house that someone built, not unwarranted confusion. even inside, the stadium feels remarkably similar to the old one.

on this journey, i brought my trusty nikon. so, for those that have not been - welcome to the new era of Yanks bball..... stadium - awesome. on the field play this season so far, not so much.

bug off!

LL Bean released a new line of clothing, that is geared to protect you from insects and sun. Not sure if it works, but as someone who gets eaten alive by mosquitoes, i may give it a shot.

pick 5

there's an app on facebook that has you choose top 5 lists - and share them with your friends. there are various categories; i chose to fill out the three that i was most passionate about from the batch they offered. here goes...
albums (the art of the full album has been lost. it is unfortunate.)
beer (i had never liked beer until my pops moved to belgium. beer is wonderful there.)
tv shows (i spent and spend much time in front of the tube. law & order marathon - sold!)

my new toy

i had wanted to get a nice camera for awhile now. ya know - SLR with fancy lens and quick shutter speed - ability to play with aperture (blurriness) -- the whole sha-bang. so, i got one. Nikon d80. don't quite know how to use it yet - but here are some shots i took this weekend in miami, as i learn.

a train pulls in

i shot this on wednesday evening. there is something interesting about the emergence of the train from the tunnel i feel. this weekend, i'm gonna figure out how to use iMovie so i can cut this to music. but for now - enjoy the soothing screech of the metal from the MTA's F train.

in the booth

My good friend Dustin, a super photographer, set up his new concept STUDIO BOOTH at the latest My Favorite Things party. The deal is: he sets up a cool space - and gives you a prop to get creative with - in this case, a very large PUMA Clyde sneaker. The photos are great quality. Here are a couple of shots I concocted. More shots from other party attendees: here

You like?? Reach out and book Studio Booth for your next party!

Central Park - Ice

i 'bought' a nice Nikon SLR camera online a few weeks ago, but it's back-ordered. i'm not confident it'll ever come in to be honest - the deal was too good. but, that has not deterred me. today, i strolled through central park, which is still full of ice, and took some snaps with my lil' coolpix camera (also from nikon).

BLUSTERY - part 2 of a 3 part series

another mix for you - by me, DJ TAKE 5. (part 2 of 3)
track 1 is hip-hop, and as usual, includes some old and some new.
track 2 is a bit more avant guarde - it has a couple of tunes in a new genre called dubstep - if you like them - i encourage you to check out an artist called BURIAL. he pioneered it.

let me know what you think.
download it here:

WINTERY (part 1) - can also still be downloaded here:
