Manifest Equality

March 9, 2010

I got to check out the Manifest Equality Art show on Vine last week.

The MANIFEST EQUALITY Gallery gathers together a diverse array of hundreds of the nation’s most talented visual artists under one roof to celebrate that role and join with our gay (LGBT) friends, family members and co-workers to demand full and equal rights for all Americans.

Peep some of the photos I snapped:

Shepard Fairey: Defend Equality, Love Unites

Robbie Conal: Freedom From Choice

Patrick Martinez: Thugs Eat Ice Cream

Curtis Kulig: Love Me

To view the complete gallery, go here.

Very, very dope.


How Many Billboards?

February 28, 2010

If you guys are wondering about all the random billboards that aren’t ads, but art pieces, this is an exhibition that the MAK Center for Art and Architecture is putting on.

The philosophical proposition of the exhibition is simple: art should occupy a visible position in the cacophony of mediated images in the city, and it should do so without merely adding to the visual noise. How Many Billboards? Art In Stead proposes that art periodically displace advertisement in the urban environment.

I caught some pics while driving today down La Brea to our shithole of a studio. Just kidding, it’s sexier than Fabio’s hair after he steps out the shower.  But the point is, let’s see who can spot all 21 billboards first.  Winner gets a massive make-out sesh.  With me.

The cloudy sky billboard above is from the lovely artist Kerry Tribe.

Below is from photographer James Welling.

Don’t thank me for the high quality photos, thank Blackberry.

Old Man Stacheface

February 4, 2010

Kinda looks like Mr. Monopoly with a full head of hair.



February 2, 2010

I love Skullphone’s work as I see it pop up more and more thorughout LA.  Any of you ever seen the electronic billboard he hacked into last year?

This piece is on the corner Vine and Selma (just a bit west on Selma).

Definitely would like to cross paths with this dude one day.


I’m back and I want you

December 31, 2009

I spent the last 5 days in Cleveland, OH seeing all the wonderful things the city has to offer.

Best moment on my vacation: Dancing to “Thuggish Ruggish Bone” in a club and watching everyone triple time rap all the words.

Even though the Cavs crushed the Lakers last week,  I’ll always have a soft spot for Clevelandtown.


Ripping Faces Off

Beverly and Poinsettia, kinda near El Coyote.

I’m always down with skullfaces, especially ones with fully intact hair-doos.


Hi-Kick Competition: Winner Smells Terrible

September 9, 2009

This lovely lady was chillin backstage at the Roxy after our show and the first thing Noah did (before introducing himself) was extend a proper hi-kick directly to her dome.  Untouched, she laughed in his face, called him worthless, and said she can kick higher.

And so the competition began…

(apologies for the poor Blackberry 2008 quality)

Enrique Enfuego tagged on my back.  It will burn for a few days, but the memories will last forever.


Yea, I know, right?



Deadliest Foods

July 9, 2009


I’m sure this is a Fatality move in Mortal Combat.


Tacos, Tortas, Michael

July 6, 2009



LA represent.

This artwork is on the corner of Vermont and 23rd.  If you are going to the memorial tomorrow at the Staples Center, you should roll by this corner to peep it…and get yourself some tacos while you’re at it.

Still grieving,


Someone Get The First Aid Kit

June 2, 2009


Last night, as I walk into our studio to edit bass for “Can’t Quit”, I see this pathetic looking creature sitting down, completely sweaty, filthy, and of course, with a massive amount of tissue jammed up his nostrils.

I’ve seen Noah do bizarre shit before so I wasn’t phased at first, but I got concerned when I saw him hold an icy 24 oz of Old E on his nose, and blood dripping from the tissue.

His story is that he got headbutted playing basketball and broke his nose.

I think he’s lying.  I think this is an obvious case of SVNP otherwise known as Severe and Vicious/Violent Nose Picking.

Either way, sucks for the little guy.  Feel free to send him flowers, soda, or anything with a lot of sugar in it.


Defiance, Courage, Action, Awesome

May 19, 2009


I was walking to lunch on Selma and Vine and spotted this ultrathick Lance Armstrong piece by Shepard Fairy.  I found out a few weeks ago Livestrong supporters cycled from the LA Children’s Hospital to this piece. 

Simply bodaysh.


New Ingredient

EXTRA has gone the “extra” step and is now inserting actual chunks of Island into their gum. 

Which island exactly?

All islands.

And it tastes delicious.

This Guy…

March 7, 2009

We really should start a category revolving around this man’s obnoxious behavior of sleeping during hyphyness.




Awww,  how cute?


Street Art: Incognito

February 11, 2009

Dope piece of an LA native staying incognito.



Beef: Music Box vs. Lamps Plus

February 10, 2009

First Soulja Boy and Bow Wow, and  now we got the Henry Fonda and Lamps Plus going at it. 

Like George Clinton once said, “I cry two tears in a bucket, fuck it, let’s take it to the stage.”



Bette Midler + Work in the Morning = Barfcakes by Noon

Those legs. 

Today, this calendar burns.


Street Art: Dinner Time in Smog City

February 4, 2009


Just saw this yesterday on Beverly, a few blocks west of LaBrea.

Then I got Black Uhuru stuck in my headbrain.
