Asian Pacific Arts Interview

Photobucket asian pacific arts, an online magazine published by the ucla asia institute, asked me to sit-down with them to talk about Song and the premiere and concert this sat (2/28). the way they posted the interview is dope because they have both the audio from the interview and the transcript so you can pick and choose what you want to hear rather than having to hear my dumb-ass ramble. you can check it out here.
shouts to my cuzzo liann for setting this up!

Got Money & Honey but no place to go for Saturday?

telegraph.co.uk The 130,000 square yard islet of Galesnjak came to prominence after its unusual shape was highlighted on Google Earth. Even the owner of the uninhabited island - now known as Lovers' Island - didn't realise how perfectly heart-shaped the island off the Croatian coast was until he was swamped with requests from couples to stay there. It seems many lovers from around the world consider it the ideal spot for a romantic Valentine's Day break. Vlado Juresko said: "It has been incredible. We think it is the most perfect heart-shaped island in the world. Nobody lives there so if lovers really do want to spend time alone it's the perfect desert island. "We always thought it looked a bit like a heart but since it's been on Google Earth everyone else has seen it too and the whole world seems to want to stay here." The island is located in Zadarski Kanal between Zadar and the Island of Pasman. Croatia is ranked as the 18th most popular tourism destination in the world, proving especially busy during the summer months. ----- Ever wonder what happens to Vader when he goes to the Dentist? -Random Post Guevarra

MIA & Radiohead?

Excuse the MIA-ness but school has been kicking my ass for the past month. Just been trying to have a strong start at the beginning of the quarter so that I don't fuck up like last quarter (don't ever take "Philosophy: Intro to Logic" if you hate math [yup, I'm Flip and I absolutely hate math]). I'll try putting in some quick posts hurr and thurr, but for the most part I'm with Fatgums on having to get into get-shit-done mode. After this quarter, I got a 1 more quarter to finish up 2 senior sems in Film & Politics along with 2 more upper divs. It'll all be worth it though. 14 more weeks until I'll be the first in my entire family to bring home some degrees! Here's something I learned in class today: Radiohead just made the first music video to use no cameras. I just started to learn how to do computer graphic stuff like this in my film class. This video (and song) blows my mind. But what also blows my mind is knowing that I have an opportunity to access to this kind of knowledge that I thought only Pixar folks had. I am truly lucky to even be in a space that most people don't have access to. -Chris G. I also gotta start looking for a job.

"I Learned It By Watching You!"

i gotta admit that i'm the one who's always complaining about how all the latest technology is being wasted on sharing stupid information instead of relevant shit that can actually impact the world. BUT then i see videos like this one of a kid fresh out the dentist chair and trippin hard... you can totally tell that the dad's a total vet and knows exactly what his son is going thru. if you're too young to get the quote in the headline then educate yo self... -tadillac

"War Of The Flea" (Senz of Depth Remix Feat. Bambu)

here's another leak from the upcoming a song for ourselves mixtape (slated to drop next week!). this track is a remix of "war of the flea" (a grain of sand) by the phenomenal producer senz of depth. bambu insightfully draws the parallels between the political climate of chris iijima's era and now... senz of depth is just one of the many projects of the talented musician miles senzaki. i've been lucky enough to have been able to collaborate with miles on all three of my films. for a song for ourselves he flawlessly re-created the instrumentals of some of chris iijima's songs, miles explains the evolution of the remix here. Photobucket his debut album under the senz of depth alias titled "boundary waters" will blow your mind! here's just a sample of what i'm talking about: -tadillac
