When I started this blog, it was intended to be an actual thing with updates, regular ones, and such. Instead, I got caught up in other stuff, so I had to step away for a while. But, there’s always time to come back to my own blog, right?
A lot of stuff has happened in the past few weeks. I went to San Francisco. That was fun. There are photos that I’ve been meaning to post, but haven’t yet. Maybe that will happen. I DJed at Ming & Ping and Nvr-Ndr’s show at the Grand Star, but I forgot to write down the set list. No biggie, you’ve probably heard me play those songs somewhere else before that night.
More importantly, there were a lot of stories that were published. Unfortunately, I didn’t keep track, so here are a few from the past week.
6/4/12 Cult Stars: “An L.A. Riots Video Game Concept in Which You Can Be Rodney King”— L.A. Weekly (blog)
I didn’t get to attend E3 this year (sad face), but I did go to Giant Robot’s video game-themed art show last weekend. Held at GR2, Game Over featured art inspired by those games we love, like the Kwanchai Moriya piece seen in the above photo. It also featured two actual games developed specifically for the event. You can read more about it in my Monday column for L.A. Weekly.
6/4/12 Hard Road to Rad: “Misha: How Eye Surgery Inspired the L.A. Artist’s Latest Group of Adorable Monsters”— Meltdown Comics
Shannon and I revamped our Meltdown Comics column. It has a title, Hard Road to Rad. It has a theme, which should be evident from the title. It even has a Facebook page. For our latest installment, we met up with Misha, a fantastic L.A.-based artist whose upcoming eye surgery has had an interesting impact on her work.
6/7/12 Cult Stars: “Top 5 Anime Series You Need to Watch Before Anime Expo” — L.A. Weekly (blog)
I don’t know how this story jumped to the top of the blog’s most viewed list (on the sidebar) in less than 24 hours, but it did. It’s just a list of relatively recent anime series that will have some sort of presence at Anime Expo this year, based on the guest list that’s been announced. I do recommending reading this and checking out everything on the list. They’re all good. They all have episodes that you can watch online for free without feeling guilty about it. (In other words, they’re legitimate streaming sites, like Hulu.)
On a final note, I’m on the decks at Underground tonight. RSVP on Facebook if you feel like going out later.
