DJ Vadim – Fussin N Fightin

This song is from the recent Dubcatcher 2 LP from talented DJ / producer, DJ Vadim. I’ve had this album on heavy rotation lately and this is one of my favorite songs on it.

TSOTW: LA Snakers

My friends at Hutch LA have just reissued this classic Los Angeles-inspired tee from streetwear veterans Foreign Family, featuring the artwork of MR44. There have been some similar snake-y LA graphics in the past, but this one is the best in my opinion. It’s actually based on a Mamba, for starters. Available in black and white.

Guisados

I don’t post about food much here – maybe because I’m vegetarian, and I’m not really a foodie. I usually like to keep it simple, and by simple, I mean pizza. Today I went to Guisados in Boyle Heights again with a friend and loved it as always. I gather their meaty offerings are well-worth writing about; the vegetarian ones are too. Never disappoints. Also, the Limon Aguas Frescas is amazing.

Dream Car

Speaking of MR44, I spotted this amazing car in Long Beach today, while checking out Formula DRIFT which takes place around the same time as the Long Beach Grand Prix each year. Last year, I was lucky enough to go for a ride (mostly sideways) in one of the high performance drift cars – an incredible experience, one I’ll never forget. Here’s the equally incredible JP Edition Sonata Turbo Version 2 featuring custom art by the very talented LA-based artist. [View Gallery]

Self Starters

Check out my Hawaiian homies, Jasper Wong and Kamea Hadar, co-lead directors of the incredible POW! WOW! Hawaii and POW! WOW! Worldwide mural festivals, recently featured on the NBC Asian America presents Self-Starters program. They’re two of the best, most-talented, and hardest-working people I know. This is well-deserved. Congrats guys!
