DONUTS: THE FULL-LENGTH VIDEO

There are labors of love…and then there’s this. *mind goes supernova*

VINYL ASIDES (FEAT. ME)

About eight years ago, before I moved from the Bay to L.A., Cooper Kenward and a friend interviewed me for a high school project on hip-hop. I ran into Cooper again at the SS@10 party in S.F. the other month and he asked if he might interview me again, this time for a series of web videos about…record collecting. How could I say no? The video is above and interviewer Jonathan Shifflet has a small write-up to go with it.

LET IT BURN

DJ Choimatic put me up on this and I think this is fab. It’s all about how they pronounce “love” with the hint of an accent.

DJ DAY’S VIDEO FOR “LAND OF 1000 CHANCES”

These may seem like a series of postcard shots (and to be sure, many are) but good god, does this make me miss S.F. something terribly. I love being back in L.A. and I’m fiercely defensive of a city that many have a woeful misconception of but whenever I think about The City, it’s not Los Angeles that’s on my mind or in my heart.
