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…
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…
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!
So I may have done some geeking out this week when I went out to Anaheim to attend SIGGRAPH. SIGGRAPH is a conference and exhibition focused on computer graphics and interactive techniques. It’s also a place where big companies gather to showoff their latest industry toys that’s going to be booming in the next couple of years…
Super thanks to the peeps over LightWave for hooking it up with credentials this year. Nothing like going to an event for free!
Been meaning to jump into Pixologic’s ZBrush for the longest, but been lagging. Can’t wait to get my hands on copy so I can bang out some sculpting and modeling.
SIGGRAPH 2013 was packed with mind blowing next-gen industry tools. Though these tools were made for professionals, a lot of what I saw were priced at an affordable price. Great to see high-end hardware and software coming at an affordable price for everyone.
Had a lot of fun working on this episode of GGN! Especially putting together the Larry and Snoop music video. It was also featured on Jimmy Fallon!
Hope everyone had a solid 4th of July. I spent my 4th with some close friends at the Marina Yacht Club, we may or may not have almost drowned in the Marina. haha.
Last week I had the awesome opportunity to go to E3(Electronic Entertainment Expo) on my birthday to check out new games, consoles, and experiences.
It was exciting to go hands-on with the next generation of home entertainment. Companies like Sony and Microsoft(sorry Nintendo) are really pushing to take over our living rooms in the most virtual and interactive way possible. Personally, I’m very stoked to get an Xbox One when it comes out in November.
