Fitness & Conditioning

Fitness photographer Pavel Ythjall, a venice beach resident, captures a beautiful piece working with founder of Fighter Diet Pauline Nordin on an iSport headphone promo. Ythjall works with a small group of freelancers to put together these great videos and images. I highly recommend his website for some awesome photography.

In the Beginning...

There was once a time where DJ's played vinyl. Carrying heavy crates into clubs, sorting through cover after cover with a flash light in their mouths trying to see in a dark area underneath the 1200's that were stationed in, what felt like, a three ton coffin. There were no set playlists, and DJ's knew exactly what to play next, vibin' off the party people. This era was not too long ago, everyone remembers this. Dj's were considered vinyl junkies, they didn't care about anything else besides music, they were just some random dudes that were in the back room and no one really cared to see them.

Today, we have beauty pageant models as DJ's, we put them on center stage and just stand there to watch them, until the LED lights burn a hole in our eyeballs. Even Monday Night Social (For Hollywood Residents) has sold it's sole to greed. I remember standing ten feet away from Miss Nine at the old Nacional main floor. Not everything has gone to shit, some things have excelled and gave us things that were never possible on the old MK2's.

Pioneer DJ Global drops it's limited CDJ-2000 next month. If you got the money and are in the industry get 'em while it's available. If not, just enjoy this video of Miss Nine.

Baby Light My Fire

From William Brakes quotation: "If the doors of perception were cleansed every thing would appear to man as it is, infinite." came the most controversial rock band in the sixties, The Doors. Greatest rock and roll band in my opinion. Fast forward to half a century later members from the band join todays hottest dub-step artist Skrillex to create RE-GENERATION. A project that five Dj's such as Skrillex turn the tables (pun intended) on the history of music.

Six months ago a friend sent me an email asking to check out her cousin's new music video. I thought it was well done with nice lyrics so I posted it on this blog tryin' to help spread the word. Since than I've gotten many hits on that video with positive feedback. Today I'd like to share with you MC Imprints new music video "Sidelines".

A Seal Beach resident (MC IMPRINT) dedicating this song to those you lost their lives in the tragic Salon Meritage event on Oct. 12, 2011.

Life Itinerary

We perceive the passage of time as a continuous, series of linear experiences. It doesn't appear to stop, slow down, or speed up at any point. We don't jump over pieces of time, skipping forward or back to the points that interest us. Therefore, time does not exist, it is simply our mind applying an understandable framework to the progression of our consciousness.

Shady Love

This would be the second appearance for Scissor Sisters on Thousand Snakes, no doubt these guys are out there. With no surprise they release their first 2012 video "Shady Love". At first view you're going to think WTF?... second time you're going to pick up on things you missed the first time around, third time watching this video you won't be able to stop midway and everytime after that once you start the video you're gonna watch it until the end.
