This just appeared on youtube. Bamboozle was great anybody got any other videos?
I’m kinda figuring this thing out. I’m pretty excited too I can finally complete the unholy trinity blogger/dj/photographer.
all you photo kidz what should i do with this thing. Looks pretty on point as is, but i might fuck around with a flash.
So where has my last week been? I don’t even know. It’s all kind of been a blur, but luckily I came to nashville a few days early to eat some Pancake Pantry go to rock shows and get back to reality.
Below is a seriously long post about the last weeks events including hipster polygamists, LARP, tiny airplanes, “my new haircut”, malibu, miami, charlotte, and nashville.
So I post one abstract DJ video and 99 others pop up.
So I really would have been keeping you updated on a regular basis but the internet at our lodge wasn’t capable or working for more than 30 seconds at a time. Basically after the incidents in San Francisco and Oakland I made my way to Salt Lake City, got swooped by the driver and headed out to Park City, dude was giving me the royal tour on the way talking about the valley and mormons and other shit that I didn’t want to hear at all cuz all I was thinking was “need sleep.”
I finally got to the lodge, and as I was walking up the stairs I ran into our manager jordan and gave him my room so he didnt have to bunk on the couch with Cisco and Shwayze. He just hopped on his homie’s Jet so he didnt get himself a room. I basically changed my shirt and headed out with Jordan to meet Cisco, Cat, Shwayze and the rest of their posse and they dodged in and out of gifting suites. I felt like shit by this time and there are few things worse than dragging around a bunch of crap you don’t really want through a snowy mountain town. Either way we did some interviews and lied a whole bunch hahaha, then me and shwayze went to Cisco’s rehearsal with Camp Freddy. It was supposed to take 15 minutes but ended up taking 3 hours as there was some trouble locating drum sticks.
We ended up leaving that spot and heading back to the room. We got our shit together and went to Paris’ dinner party at the turning leaf. Had some good food chatted with Denise, Abby, and Charles from Virgin America Airlines. Charles was the coolest dude ever, I introduced him to Perez (who informed me he reads EatSkeet?! Crazy! you better comment perezzizizzzle) and we chatted about the bay area, richard branson, and how dope virgin is in general. He gave all of us free roundtrip flights and basically was the best guy ever. After my little chat with Charles me and Shwayz went to talk to and Taelor about being pescatarian(vegetarian with fish?) and about how much I love nashville since she’s from there.
Anyways after Paris’ little dinner shindig I went to Stereo where I was gonna DJ but I felt like death and there were already 3 other DJs in the house, so I said fuck it went home and went to sleep at like 12.
Only to be woken up at 3:45 am by cisco and shwayze and 3 sisters who turned out to be the coolest people ever. They drove from LA to sundance on a whim and had no place to stay so we let em crash in our lodge and they’re actually there right now.
Here are some pics of sisters Felicia (yellow jacket), Whitney(black beanie) and Chelsea (blue beanie).
Basically they woke me up and we all fucked around till like 7am when me, chelsea and felicia passed out on the couch and everyone else found beds haha. Chelsea sprawled and kneed me out of the bed at like 10am and I was up for good. Another night of no sleep in the books.
We got up and got our shit together by 1 o’clock and met up with Ted and Matty O from myspace and we went to the Myspace lounge to have breakfast, the girls did their own thing and we talked about myspace parties, facebook and other random shit. After breakfast I went to the LRG/Skullcandy gifting suite and saw my skullcandy dudes Quang and Brad (also got some new SK Pros love those things). And I finally got to meet Julian AKA Red Foxxxworth who was out there doing video interview work for Karmaloop.
I left that place feeling terrible, like no bones about it I was sick. I had been popping airbornes and emergenc’s but they clearly had not done enough. The driver got cisco, shwayze and the girls and they scooped me so we could all head back to the lodge. We were trying to sleep, but a half an hour into the nap Rory and Natalie found our room and stopped by to say what up. I had met them briefly in the past, but Radam tossed Rory my # and she wanted to hang. We chatted for a bit and she headed home.
Next on the schedule was Chef Dance which was one of the longest (3 hours) and best meals I’ve had in a long time. Food was incredible, and I actually hit up our driver dude Rob to grab me some cold/cough medicine so I could function when we had to play at 2am.
He came through so big and got me some sudafed which really helped, and after the meal we headed to Tao. It was the clusterfuck of the century so me, myspace Ted, and Cat from suretone went to Green Door early and missed Cisco play with Velvet Revolver (You Go Dude!).
Cat, Ted and I wandered around this 30,000 SQ FT mansion of mansions and found a hot tub, a pool, a basketball court and a living room the size of the roxy all inside this place. As we were getting lost inside it started snowing hard and we were informed it was gonna drop 18 inches tonight. So here I am in the SLC airport after driving through the gnarliest storm from park city, watching the plane outside the window just get covered in snow. Somehow I don’t feel like it’s the best idea to fly through a snow storm, but i figure they’re probably pro’s at this in Salt Lake.
Anyways tonight we’re playing in Miami @ Stoli Hotel. I’m pumped on it.
Also I just remembered that I used to have this Tee and it’s nowhere to be found.
How good is the Converge record “Jane Doe” OMG!
So today I went tobogganing with my girls the Lindsay’s, Louis (Fake Shark! Real Zombie) and Rony and his girlfriend Lauren. We went to Seymour mountain in West Vancouver, and it was awesome. I bought some boots and snow-pants for SUNDANCE ON SATURDAY. Also after Sundance I go to Miami with the Boys.

I come back tomorrow and do this Private event at StoneRose all I know is it’s some “celebrity driven” thang so that means more clubby club mainstream tunes. Then according to my booking agent thursday i’m linking up with Katy P’s fav Travis from Gym Class and we’re going to Kristin Cavalarris’ bday that I’m DJing. Friday is San Francisco also. Man this is the most scatterbrained blog post ever let’s get to the highlights and low-lights on the internet.
The Party i’m doing in sundance is below basically it’s gonna be EPIC
Now i’m going to dinner at incendios this italian restaurant. Vancouver is awesome in case you haven’t gathered that yet.
Rony is across from me right now in a v-neck, he wanted to wear a long sleeve shirt to the mountain this morning, he hadn’t seen snow since he was 7, i’m gonna post em when i get back to LA they’re crizazy.
Okay I gotta go eat. And in case you haven’t picked a side pick one and VOTE! My vote goes to Canada.

I constantly discuss the fact that everyone in LA and their Ipod is a DJ these days. While I am known for my impeccable music taste, I have held strong. I am the only person I know in LA, who is not a DJ.
I am in Portland Oregon for the week. I know a bunch of people up here from my formative days, being growing up in Boston. None of these people have even sort of good music taste.
My friend Brooke has a Barbeque Sunday. We get beer and make food. We are good to go until I realize there is no music. So I decide to DJ. Not just DJ, I decide to DJ entirely off of Myspace. It worked for the first hour or so. As more and more people showed up that I had not seen since the 1990s, it got a little more difficult. Conversations about the past decade of our lives outlasted Lâ€™Trimm. I eventually had to bail on the whole endeavor and use a playlist. Plus the 20 Windows open on my laptop sort of started to freeze. I gave the whole thing a really good try.
So you want to be a Myspace DJ?
Here is my mixtape (aka the windows I had open.)
2.Salt n Pepa â€œNone of your Businessâ€
3.Outhere Brothers â€œBoom Boom Boomâ€
4. Lil Mama â€œWhatever that Avril Remix is calledâ€
5.Plastic Little â€œDrizholleringâ€
7.Ghost town DJs â€œMy Boo
8. Lil Mama â€œWhatever that Umberella Remix is calledâ€
9.Sweatheart â€œDream Beaverâ€
10. Diplo â€œSo so Krispyâ€
11. Justice â€œDANCE remix
12. Plastic Little â€œGet Closeâ€
13. Salt N Pepa â€œPush Itâ€
14. Justice â€œWe are your friendsâ€
15. Lil Bow Wow â€œBasketballâ€
16.Lâ€™Trimm â€œCars that go Boomâ€
(Thatâ€™s all I can remember. My computer froze at some point.)
Some girl asked if I could play the â€œregular song about the umbrellas.â€
When Justiceâ€™s D.A.N.C.E. remix came on, one Barbeque attendee did impressively ask, â€œWhose Justice remix is this?â€
I shrugged, â€œUm, Justices.â€
