Last week I went out to Greystone for the launch of NBA2K14. I’m a huge gamer, but I’ve never really been into sport games like the NBA2K franchise. Once I got to Greystone I immediately grabbed a Playstation controller and got my ass kicked in the paint, since I had no clue what I was doing. Though I was clueless of how to play the game, I was still incredibly entertained by the overall gameplay.
The event was epic. There was an open bar where I consumed way too many Shirley Temples, a photo booth, and a live performance by Juicy J!
New Game Rants is up! Played this new HTML5/WebGL game called “Hello Run.” Controlled the game using my Leap Motion, so I was sweating up a storm!
Let’s rewind a couple of weeks back to when I went to FYF Fest 2013, an indie music festival that once took place at the Echoplex, that then bloomed into a massive two day event that’s now held at the L.A. Historic State Park.
It was a last minute decision for me to attend FYF, but once I got word that I wasn’t working the weekend of the event, I hit Twitter to find a ticket since they were all sold out. Shout out to my buddy, Allen, over at MySpace for hooking it up!

Day-1 had a lot of awesome performances. I was able to catch Toro Y Moi, Classixx, Deerhunter, Nosaj Thing, TV On The Radio, SMD b2b w/ Bicep, Yeah Yeah Yeahs, and Death Grips(Yes, they actually showed up).
It was a mind blowing showcase with great Summer in LA vibes that complimented a solid lineup. Can’t wait for FYF Fest 2014.
I’ve been pushing a lot of pixels recently. I make pixels twerk over at my main job at Cashmere Agency, handle a residency doing live design at Create Nightclub, and most recently, I got a chance to hit up HARD with some content…
Though HARD Summer was a 2-day event, I only went out on the second day of the event. Once I got there I met up with my V Squared Labs peeps to get set up..
Had a lot of fun working the Underground Stage and checking out the other sets.
I don’t think I humblebrag enough about my amazingly talented friends. My good friend, Dan, is a beast in the kitchen, he knows how flavors works and what reacts best to tastebuds. Dan is currently working his way out of the kitchen and into his own food-studio to share his creations with others. To get to that point, he is doing a monthly dinner for friends called the #SecretSupperSeries. This consist of a themed 4-course dinner, each month is different…
I was fortunate enough to attend the 2nd #SecretSupperSeries last weekend, which took place at Dan’s house. I had no idea what to expect from Dan, but deliciousness was definitely promised…
First course: Black eyed pea hush puppy w/ remoulade.
Freshly brewed iced tea.
Second course: Smoked BBQ chicken w/ collard greens and mac n cheese.
Third course: Chicken & waffles: Sous vide fried chicken, sweet potato cornmeal waffle, wilted kale, pickled watermelon rind, red onion, and cane syrup.
Dessert: Peach-habanero praline cobbler w/ buttermilk ice cream.
We were all stuffed and completely satisfied. I wish I could go in-depth about how amazing the food was, but I honestly don’t know enough about food to explain what I experienced. Everything was delicious.
If you’re interested in attending Dan’s #SecretSupperSeries, just hit him up on Twitter!
