Justice / The Rapture / Busy P @ Club Nokia – Los Angeles, CA – 04/18/2012

Pedro Winter “aka” Busy P kicked off the Club Nokia on Wednesday with a superb opening set. The man who managed Daft Punk knew how to work his crowd. Busy P had class and style and was electrifying to say the least. With the help of his superb showmanship he was able to keep the crowd hyped up through some lapse in music due to technical difficulties.



With his suave French reassurance he said, sickness “Los Angeles we are going to party” and followed it with music drop of awesomeness, which started up the storm of energy in Nokia.  He went through some different tempos from the standard electro sound to mixing with some Queen’s “Under Pressure.  He even hyped up Nokia with some Justice “Civilization” getting the crowd going. He closed off with a fantastic mix of “Suck my Kiss” by the Red Hot Chili Peppers hooking in the crowd as they chanted “Suck my kiss”.



The Rapture came on and gladly took over the party. Although I prefer their abilities as a band, they weren’t bad. They had a heavy percussion driven sound mixed with voice samples. The crowd felt their sound and reciprocated it with energy filled movements. As the set continued the sound inserted more bass turning up the crowd’s energy output. There were some hints of the famous New Order song “Blue Monday’s” bass line nicely mixed into one of their songs that grooved quite well. The set went on little too long but it only helped to built excitement for Justice.



What can I say about such a great duo like Justice? Only that they killed it with their heavy distortion electro sound. They’re Metallica, Ministry, Daft Punk, and Prodigy meshed into one entity called Justice. Their dirty metal electro kick started the crowd with a background ominous dark light sprinkled with strobing bright white lights and a red glow of cigarettes. The cigarette smoke hung over the artists heads as they mixed and mashed in sync with a glow of light with every inhalation of the cig. They closed hard and they closed big it was the show to be in, in a plethora of after Coachella preview. Los Angeles had the aftermath of the explosiveness of Coachella, making it a good weekend to party.

RUN ASIAN MAN! – Los Angeles Police Chase Ends in Hail of Bullets

RUN ASIAN MAN! – Los Angeles Police Chase Ends in Hail of Bullets

Posted on 24 February 2012 by admin


From NBCLosAngeles.com

Streets in Koreatown remained closed early Friday for an investigation into an officer-involved shooting after a pursuit Thursday night that wound through busy Hollywood streets before police fired multiple shots into the suspect’s vehicle parked in a gas station parking lot.

The suspect drove into a Shell gas station on Vermont Avenue and Wilshire Boulevard, ed where he pulled up next to a vehicle parked at a pump. That’s when police fired into the vehicle. The suspect died at the scene.

[UPDATE, prostate Friday 7:30 a.m.] The suspect’s vehicle and investigators remained at the scene early Friday. Wilshire Boulevard and Vermont Avenue both reopened in time for the morning commute.

Two people appeared to be fueling up at the pump immediately next to where the shooting occurred.

The driver of the vehicle parked next to the suspect’s car could be seen crouching against the gas pump, his arms covering his head as shots were fired.

The pursuit began around 6:15 p.m. in El Sereno after a suspected carjacking at a gas station near Valley Boulevard and Eastern Avenue, according to Los Angeles Police.

The suspect reportedly took a blue-green 1993 Saturn.

That was the second carjacking the suspect was involved in Thursday, said Commander Andrew Smith. Police believe he stole a car at gunpoint from a 30-year-old woman in San Bernardino around 3 p.m.

Both car owners were uninjured, police said.

The chase lasted about an hour and took police on the 101 Freeway before the suspect drove onto Hollywood surface streets. At times, the streets ahead of the pursuit were completely clear and it appeared to encounter minimal traffic.

Aerial communications described the suspect as armed, but police would not confirm if the suspect had a weapon.

The chase travelled at about 40 mph, and the driver appeared to a stop at most red lights and slowly moved through intersections.

While driving west on Hollywood Boulevard, the suspect slowed down to a crawl past a corner where pedestrians appeared to be recording him with their cellphones.

The chase moved through Hollywood Boulevard before heading south on Highland Avenue.

While on Highland Avenue, officers emerged from their vehicles when it appeared the suspect came to a stop. But when the light turned green, the pursuit resumed.

The driver made it past Sixth Avenue before turning left onto Wilshire Boulevard.

Aerial communications reported that police waived the option to PIT the vehicle – that is, turn it backwards by driving into its back bumper – because the suspect had previously pointed what appeared to be a gun at the officers.

At least ten LAPD cars surrounded the gas station after the shooting. It was unclear immediately how many shots were fired, but it appeared that multiple rounds entered the suspect’s vehicle – blowing out glass onto the surrounding pavement.

“They got out of their cars, pulled out their guns and said, ‘Freeze,'” said witness John Kim. “They told her to get out of the car, but she didn’t.”

Police dragged the suspect’s body several feet from the car, where it lay covered in a pink tarp.

Witness John Kim said officers repeatedly yelled for the suspect to get out of the car.

Police justified the use of deadly force Thursday night.

“There were patrons inside and outside,” Smith said. “He pulled up his revolver and pointed it at the individuals inside the store.”

The streets around the scene and the Vermont/Wilshire Metro station will remained closed into the night.

Margo’s Bark Root Beer

Posted on 10 August 2011 by Bryan


I found this totally delicious Root Beer that is also a super rad non-profit company donating it’s proceeds to help shelter dogs.  Came across this beverage at Umami Burger on La Brea in Los Angeles.  The price was $3 for a 12oz. bottle, viagra but that ain’t bad for a refreshing drink with my savory burger.  Plus, viagra as I mentioned, view the proceeds are saving dogs!  Margo’s Bark is definitely a party animal favorite!


From MargosBark.com:

HI, I’m Margo. I am a black lab-pit bull mix and the spokesdog for Margo’s Bark Root Beer. I also belong to the Youd family, and they belong to me. But it wasn’t that way at first. When I was just a few weeks old, I was abandoned in a parking lot in Long Beach, before I was picked up by my foster parents and soon thereafter adopted by the Youds. I’m one of the lucky ones. There are far more dogs who wind up in city shelters, which is why the Youd family and I got into the root beer business. Here’s how it happened.

I am in charge of a seven year old boy named Oscar Youd. For his school science fair at St. James School in Los Angeles, Oscar (with help from his mom Jessica and dad Tim) made home made root beer. The object of the experiment was to create carbonation in the soda, which occurs when yeast acts on sugar. As an aside, I can tell you that when a dog acts on sugar, she gets crazy and emits a different kind of gas. But that’s another story.

Beyond the science of it, it was a great deal of fun. Oscar decided to name the root beer Margo’s Bark, after the family dog, which is me. I patiently posed for my picture and together we designed labels for the bottles, and today’s design reflects those original home made efforts.

At the science fair, I am told we served close to 300 people. I remain confused as to why I was not allowed to attend – I’m actually really into science. Evidently, my family heard many times over that we should be selling the stuff. And so, in the aftermath we actually started talking (and barking) about doing just that. And because the plight of shelter animals is something we have an ongoing interest in, we determined that making and selling Margo’s Bark for the benefit of shelter dogs would be a wonderful adventure for us.

Once we decided on this plan, we became obsessed with root beer. They took a trip (without me!) to Galco’s Old World Grocery in east LA, and picked up just about every brand of root beer that gets made in the US today. And for many months they have been sampling these to zero in on exactly what makes a root beer great. They have toured bottling plants and micro-breweries, and they have worked with flavorists to make what we all think is one great tasting beverage.

So twist off the cap of a nice cold Margo’s Bark and drink a bite! All profits go to helping the cause of shelter and rescue dogs. And believe me, they need all the help they can get.

Love and Slobbery Kisses

Rage Against the Machine + Muse @ Los Angeles Coliseum – Los Angeles, CA – 07/30/2011

Posted on 01 August 2011 by Bryan


Anticipation for L.A. Rising had been building for over a month before the show and personally I couldn’t wait.  I had never before seen Rage Against the Machine OR Muse perform live, look so the opportunity to see both on the same night at such an epic venue was incredible!



We arrived just before Muse took the stage and the sun was beginning to fall below the horizon.  There were a lot of people there, pilule but the crowd wasn’t as pumped as I had expected them to be.  However, capsule as soon as the sun was finally down things started to heat up.

Juicy Burger – Hollywood

Posted on 01 August 2011 by Bryan


I am not ashamed to admit my favorite food is the all american Hamburger.  So, ailment without further adieu, ailment I present to you JUICY BURGER.  Quickly stated, ed this place is the shit!


Just make sure you don’t go buck wild on their “Build Your Own Burger” menu.  You don’t want too many sauces or the thing will be way too damn juicy!



I’ve only been to the location on Hollywood/Cahuenga, but apparently there is another location near Franklin/Vermont.  Bottom line, the fries are decent, but the burgers are the best bang for your buck in the Greater Hollywood Area.   Plus, let us not forget this place is OPEN UNTIL 3AM!

Los Angeles, CA 90028
