So PASH last week at the ROOM was just about the most fun a night in a bar could be. all the best buddies, best tunes, best everything. if you missed it you can check out photos here. it was good to see everyone!

the night before i went to go see BJORK at the nokia theater downtown. opening up were super buddy mike's band RATATAT. they were soooo good. it was great to see them in yet another enormous venue (last time was the show w/ daft punk at the coliseum). after BJORK's set i went backstage to meet up with mike and andrea and jeremy scott and his sweet crew. we had a dance party and lil ms. Bjork actually DJ'd and danced with us. Super fun. she dj'ed lots of R. Kelly and Peaches and we danced and danced.

anyway, tomorrow night i'm djing this special event in collab w/ RHINO Records. Rhino has opened a little experience pop-up store over on 3rd street. tomorrow is country night (GRAM PARSONS/EMYLOU HARRIS EVENT) and i'm brining my friend brock and we're gonna show off some country tunes. anyone that knows me knows that gram parsons is my favorite. you can see more about the pop up store at this website .... and check the flyer below for details.

hope to see you there!!!!!

...also stay tuned on tomorrow for info on PASH (i'm djing again and you're all invited)!

Monday, November 12, 2007


today/monday is strange. i just got back from a beautiful, awe-inspiring trip to big sur this past weekend with all my best pals. it was coined by many of us as the 'best weekend ever'. my dad just sent me this picture of himself back in the day (he's second from left)...

and my sister sara was hit and run by a car while running across broadway st last night in kansas city. if anyone knows anything, please let us know. she's in the hospital but ok, will be ok.

i am fully aware that i have been criminally absent from the blogosphere as of late (as of this year). i see things starting to wind down here in late '07 and will hopefully soon have enough time to update on all the happenings. i have stuff to talk about... there's CMJ, NYC debauchery, Halloween, LA party time, tooooo much. until i get a chance to sit down for a one-on-one with my laptop check out this funny little one-on-one interview i did for Detour Mag.... RIGHT HERE.

ps: sorry that the pics have not been updated over at flickr. my camera broke. plan on getting a new one soon.

life is strange when your friends have to read your blog to find out how you're doing. sorry friends. this week has been packed with goodness. i do love LA sometimes, miss my bed... but love LA. for all those friends who haven't seen me in a while, come out to The Roosevelt tomorrow night... poolside. your favorite dj is playing some tunes.

Friday, September 28, 2007


omg kiddies, do you ever just crave sleep and cable tv and take out food over party-time central? i'm so in that mode right now. i almost i wish i lived back in kansas, circa the 90s, when the most exciting thing to do on a friday night was gather in the gas station parking lot, smoke cigarettes and see if any crackheads were just high enough to buy us a mickey's deuce deuce without running away with our fiv'er... oh those days are long and gone and life is just plain wacky.

this week was intense at work and play. each day packed with all kinds of emergencies that requrired too much attention and each night was packed with events/shows and parties that required little sleep. i managed to DJ like twelve times (twice last night alone). i'm actually a pretty horrible dj so it's kind of funny how peeps keep asking me to do it. i must say tho, being behind a dj booth gives you this power unlike anyother. you get to pick out the songs that twenty, fifty sometimes hundreds of people HAVE TO HEAR. it's not like they can turn off their ears. they are stuck there, no running away from it, no changing the channel. i equate it to something like sitting behind a serious farter on an airplane. really, where can you go? you're stuck there with the smell, you can't turn your nose off or else you suffocate... anyway, i am the farter that is here to take over your ear drums one club night at a time...

it's almost 11:30PM on a friday night and i'm still sitting here at the dim mak hq and i just got done putting together our VIP list for the festival we are putting on tomorrow. we are soooooo over our quota for the VIP and backstage area... but seriously, how can we turn down all the good people. throwing parties is fun and all but sometimes having to accomodate hundreds of people because they are your friends can be tough... but, everyone in my world is a VIP to me. everyone.

ok i'm tired. i'm going home to go to bed. if you're in LA and want to come out to NEIGHBORHOOD FESTIVAL you should. it's going to be dance party madness fun.

on sunday i'm heading to swerve fest for some bands and stuff and on monday i'm djing this party at beauty bar (holy crap did they say mike joyce is djing too? all i can say is i met mike joyce eve that i lost my v many many moons ago). woah. please come hang with me.

see ya all around town.

ps check out the amazing pics from old bff's graham and suzie's wedding last week in big sur. i fell in love with the idea of love. seriously, it was all those sappy emotions all wrapped up into one very gorgeous weekend. please don't barf at my sentiments. thanks from the peanut gallery.

Wednesday, September 19, 2007


hey dudes, these fun dj gigs keep coming up and i'm all for it. i'm going to graham and suzie's wedding this weekend in big sur. driving up with my pal erika. it's like college days reunion to the max. seriously excited.

we'll be driving back from big sur sunday and i should be getting to LA just in time to make it to the standard to dj the brand spankin new DEATH DISCO night. check the flyer here for details. hope to see you there.

ps: monday night at the viper room was sooooooo much fun. our dj set ruled. we played all rock-n-roll fronted by cool ladies set. it was a blast. the donnas ruled it... and none other than the MOZ was at the club jamming out to our tunes all night long. definitely one of the more insane experiences i've ever had. djing for MORRISSEY! woah.

end of summer...

hello friends. i still haven't found the time to write a blog post about the happenings of the past few months. there is just so much to tell that telling nothing at all is easier.

anyway, maybe if i see you out and about we can catch up. if you're in LA come to the little joy tomorrow. i'm djing the weekly arthur magazine party and will be playing my favorite tunes. if you can't make it tomorrow, come out on monday to the viper room. i'll be djing in between bands for the Indie 103 Check 1/2 night! flyer below....

also, i have uploaded some more photos to the flickr page. check it out HERE!!!

and to all my good buddies -- i want to have and end of the summer LA bbq -- my backyard, good bbq, sweet tunes, maybe some tiedying? you into it?????

earthquakes follow me

for all the concerned friends.

ana and family are ok.

we actually left lima this morning and took a flight to cusco. i was sitting under an ancient archway in the middle of the historic plaza de armas staring at a group of stray dogs when i thought my altitude sickness had fully kicked in. i was swaying back and forth and side to side... i figured i was just exceptionally dizzy due to the extreme altitude. only a few minutes later, when i reunited with my family, did i realize there was a huge quake up north in pisac. what i felt in that plaza was nothing compared to what our brothers and sisters to the north dealt with.

we head to lima next week. i hope the damage is not too bad and that my family there is ok.

take care friends,

hi friends. leaving on a plane to peru tomorrow. i'm excited. first time i've returned to my birth country since i moved to america when i was six. i'll make sure to post pics and what not from the trip soon as i return, if not while im there for sure.

here are some recent adventures.
last night was tv night at the ana manor, lukey, rachy, titaee, natey, and harry all came over for our weekly entourage and flight of the conchords sessions. last night's foc episode was one of the best. loved it!

saturday night was another of kristi's art shows. prior to the show kristi, tita, ariele and i went to dinner at allegria. the restaruant is just a couple blocks from my house and even though i really don't like mexican food it's one of the better mexican joints in LA. i remember when i first met jemaine from flight of the conchords he had told me allegria was his fav restaurant. i guess before they filmed this season the two of them lived in la and in my hood in silverlake and frequented the spot often. i do have a bit of school-girl crush on those guys. have met jemaine a few times but never bret. we always assumed he was the 'stay home' dude and jemaine 'the party dude'. anyway, halfway through dinner the ellusive bret walks into the restaurant, places an order and then leaves. we were kind of giggling a bit in excitement. he of course noticed so we immediately tried to play it cool. so lame. so funny. but i must say its really nice to get this goofy about a show and two normal dudes. i would way rather see these guys out and about than just about any other hollywood faces. maybe even more so than benicio. that's saying a lot.

on friday night, the hanson brothers (taylor, zachary and isaac) took me out to dinner. we had a four hour long sit down at cliff's edge and talked about everythign under the sun. i swear these three brothers are my new best friends. i love them, adore them. they are by far some of the sweetest and most intelligent kids i've met in a long time.

here's a pic of taylor and i at dinner.

here is elhaam with zach and isaac.

after diner we went to the new swanky bar the green door. zach danced his booty off. we ran into the like girls (charlotte, tennessee and z), and the maroon 5 boys (adam and james). chris holmes and adam 12 were djing for the mixed crowd of hipsters and celebrities. leonardo dicaprio was there with an underdressed entourage. it's funny how a friend of ours was not let in to the club for wearing sneakers and leonardo and his crew show up in baseball caps and sweat pants and they are escorted right in and given the finest table. well, his buddy lukas haas was dressed to the nines as he usually is but the rest looked as bedheaded as possible. we had lots of fun at the club -- dancing, drinking, dancing, watching zac braff storm out of the bar after an altercation with a bus boy. haha... after the bar closed we all winded up beachwood canyon to adam levine's house. he has one of my favorite after party homes. his parties go way into the night and never get shut down. an amazing feat for a house in the canyons. around 5am it was time to call it quits. the hanson boys had their wives and kids driving into town on saturday afternoon.

thursday was spent at home. much needed 'ana night'

wednesday was jeremy scott's birthday. cory planned his party at green door. it was such a good time. jeremy is just about the hardest working boy in hollywood and as a result is one of the best designers in the world. i love him so much. him and i were giggling over the fact that we were both on IM until late that night - still working..., he almost showed up late to his on bday because he was trying to finish work. i've done the same thing. show up late to your own event because you can't rip yourself away from the inbox. ugh. also in attendance were jeremy's cute assistant kazu, gregorii, jeff & jacob, twins chad & chris cunningham, minicobrasnake ron, and the way cute entourage of crazy colorful carnival style girls and boys always trailing the lovely jeremy around.

kazu (jeremy's asst) and birthday boy himself!

Some of my favorite moments from the last few months told in fragment sentences, photos and maybe a video....

scotty ford bday last week
drinking serious sake at scott ford's surpirse bday party at happi song (photo skullset)

dim mak/ed banger party on 4/30
our dim mak/ed banger party at the echxplex was super insane. here is the crazy wild crowd that helped make the night a huge sucess for us (photo cobrasnake)

coachella april 27-30
last day at coachella festival i finally get in the pool at our rented house -- fully dressed of course. desert heat is beyond unnecessary. cc, mark and i swim while cory, jeremy and the UK i-D kids shoot cory in all the hottest fall couture. (photo cobra)

my favorite crew of peeps to hang w/ at coachella, tennesee, jamie, charlotte, alexa and james. four brits and a charlotte. lovely

the garage at our coachella house. jeremy, fran & lyndell sort through amazing clothing worth more than my apartment. (photo skullset)

geffen party/klaxons show
me, jjp and cory at the super sweet pre party to the klaxons show hosted by the ever lovely jack joseph puig at his ocean way studio. this night was a long one on april 21 (photos cobrasnake)

after the show with my second favorite klaxon, james.

deadly syndrome opened up the show. long long night this was. tita and i ended up at crash from deadly syndrome's house until daybreak. all i remember is a pill jar with skull and cross bones. deadly is our newest signing at the good ole dim mak. they are an amazing band. we're putting out the album sept 11th, it's called the ortolan. i feel a special bond with this band since i brougth them to the label. plus they are amazing dudes. here is me and jesse from deadly syndrome.

sidekick party
sweet leigh and the misshapes crew in town to dj the sidekick party april 13. (photos cobrasnake)

tita and i got matching anchor tattoos at the party. it was like an adult playground with funnel cakes, fake tattoos, corn dogs and waaay too much booze.

jeremy scott, tom myspace and cory kennedy hold eachother. (:

i can't remember what i did from sxsw to mid april. i know i went home to visit my family after sxsw. but it's all a big blur. there was lots of sad family stuff going on...

sxsw march 14-18
we held a three day party w/ the folks at nylon and diesel for sxsw. denise k (nylon) and i were at the helm of planning. it was some serious stressful preplanning. i lost my mind around 17 times. but in the end it was a huge success. we ended up hosting pretty much the only non-sanctioned event that didn't get shut down. we were smart, got all the proper permits, had the best bands, made friends w/ the fire marshall and police department in austin and had great local planners and an amazing security crew. dim mak also had a crazy sucessful official showcase where all our bands played... or at least lots of them (scanners, pony up, deadly syndrome, oh no oh my, har mar superstar, willowz)... (photos cobrasnake and my flickr)

the packed house at the dim mak showcase

our lovely scanners

our lovely deadly syndrome

mark and i wear blue

myself and a bunch of dudes including damon from badly drawn boy wear the same shoes. my feet have never hurt so much in my whole life... thus, the sneakers. i wear sneakers maybe four times a year.

sweet boys of the nyc's the hyms, they came and kept me company at the party and made sure the open bar was well attended.

me and denise. we're always on the verge of breaking into tears from the stress.

denise and i luckily made the times between 2am and daybreak ours. we used this time to party with the rest of the festival dwellers. we got to go to a few other parties and shows but most of our time was spent at hotel after parties and at our space at our own impromptu after parties.

party crew member danny m

party crew member chris b

party crew members ana c and denise k

party crew members steve a and kele o

one night ended with us back at the hotel for a special "shhhh party" where we fend off hotel security from kicking us out of our room. denise was such a trooper. after a third visit danny intervened and charmed the irritated hotel security dudes into not evicting us.

the next night we rode in van with hanson. that's all i can really say. that's the young one and denise sprawled across laps

that's the middle one, we shared the front seat

nylon guys party march 13
back in la the night before we left for sxsw i helped out the nylon kids with their nylon guys cover launch party in la. we had it at cinespace and had the like girls and pete wentz dj along with steve. (photos cobrasnake)

me and the charlotte and tennessee

z and sweet adam b

my new friend perez in a dim mak hoodie.

bad day
i bascially got some horrible news the week before sxsw and couldn't be with my family and was depressed beyond belief and leigh and geordon were in town to dj some party. they came to dim mak hq, picked me up and we went to lunch at newroom (a tradition with us when they visit). the nice lunch, company and hilarious trip to rite aid made me come out of a horrible depressed slump. i love these two kids.

geordon is addicted to sweet tart jelly beans, he bought four bags. they are only out during easter times, it bums him out.

leigh dances in the rite aid cosmetic section

don't eat the green or yellow

a lot of birthday times
pretty much all of february and march was spent celebrating different people's birthdays. i like bdays

beau fewell bbq bday party brought out the homies. here is the palo alto reunion w/ dan, beau, strange dude, strange dude, james and luke

paigey and i get serious

then we have cory's bday bbq at my house, it was a bit more tame because cory was in lockdown at the time. here is cory w/ her new angel wings, such an angel.

jack cc and cory in my kitchen

mama bear and baby bear

then we have cc's red & white bday party at shane's. everyone had to wear white if they were single and red if they were taken. made for a mischevious night. here's cc in red.

melissa and parker in red

shane is red, mekhi in grey?

sweet jesse in white

tita, me and tehra in whiiiiiiite
