Royale Fam

I've always had a fascination with skulls.. Dia de los Muertos type skulls. And when I saw this Royal Fam Skate Decks I had to have them. Took a few weeks go get here from Singapore. Now I just have to figure out where to hang them.

Many cool things going on in the Insomniakz World

Lately I've had the amazing opportunity to get connected with some very cool events. I'll post them up starting with The Dream. A good friend of mine works in the radio business and connected me with some passes to check out his private concert. It took place at The Mezzanine in SF. The Brutha's and Electrik Red. First time hearing The Brutha's.. good stuff. The Dream was good live except he only played a few songs which kinda sucked.. But what he did play was great! Radio Killlllllla!

Talk about Calories

The other day I wasn't in a cooking mood so I just picked up this beauty at the store. It was kinda tasty for what it was.. but then I looked and it had a whopping 840 calories. Insane.. I think this was the first and last time I have the pleasure of eating one of these.. and it came with it's own desert, a brownie..

Congrats to DJit

Wanted to congratulate my cousin Manuel aka "DJit" on his latest endeavor, this music video for the band "A Red Cup Affair". A few members of the band have been by the house and they are some real cool peeps. Keep up the good work primo. Just don't forget about us little people when you guys hit it big. This is only the beginning...

Don Draper

This video is pretty funny if you are a Mad Men fan. If you ever wanted to be a big pimp daddy like Don he tells you how to make it happen.

8 Years Ago

It's hard to believe that 8 years have passed since the beloved "Wassssssup" Bud Light commercials aired. The gag got old pretty quick with everyone jumping on the bandwagon (remember the skits from Scary Movie) but it's still pretty funny to see the old gang again. Waaassssssup!!!

Over A Year

I can't believe that it's been over a year since I've posted anything. Work has kept me busy with Wall E and Cars Toons. There are a few blogs that I'd like to share and have added to the Connections.
My boy Daniel Arriaga has one showcasing his cool artwork.
Definitely check out my friend Josh Cooley's Blog, some funny shit on there.
On the music side check out Mike Shinoda from LP / Fort Minor and Kanye has a good one as well.
On the food front my boy JJ has a cool Blog devoted to all good things food.
And one that my brother turned me on for the fine things in life is Luxury4Play. Don't forget your checkbook.
And last but not least check out my cousin Rigo's Blog for some cool and collected insight.
Definitely will be posting more in the coming days.

Enjoy this clip from the Simpsons =-)

Pretty Cool

Someone must of had a lot of time on their hands to put this together but it's pretty cool. It's a bit long but it's worth the wait. Enjoy.

Winery Video

This year I was asked again to produce a Christmas video for the wineries that my cousin works for. I've been doing it for the past few years but mostly just editing footage that they've shot during the year and it was up to me to come up with something creative and entertaining. But I have to say that year after year their skits have gotten much better and funnier.
So this year I actually took the day off and spent the day down at the wineries shooting footage for this years party. It was great meeting a lot of the people that I've seen over the years but haven't actually met. Everyone was super nice and willing to get in front of the camera. Now I just have to make it look good! =-)

Where have I been?

It's been a few months since I posted anything so my apologies. Let's see what's been going on. I finally moved into a new pad with my brother, still working on the VW (got it repainted, pin striped and got the real white walls on there) and just working on a few side projects. This weekend was Billetproof in Antioch which is a great car show. I highly recommend it if you can make it. Checked out some awesome cars. Here is a pict of my friend Gilbert's new ride and his new car club. I'm still hoping he'll let me join even though my car is one year past the cut off, but to be honest, my rag top is from a 63. =-)

Exciting Week

This week has been exciting in a number of ways... First the new Linkin Park single has finally dropped, "What I've Done". You can listen to it being streamed at Linkin Park. They've hooked up with Rick Rubin on this one and the first track sounds promising. I like the Halloween sounding hook.

Secondly, Grindhouse opens on Friday. Two of my favorite directors collaborating on one project, bringing it back to "B" Movie Mayhem.

And last but certainly not least, The Soprano's premieres on Sunday on HBO. Counting down the last 8 episodes of this great saga. But let's not forget what we've all been waiting for, new episodes of Entourage. About freaking time, one of my favorite shows, Let's hug it out Bitch!
