Going down in Downtown Los Angeles – LIttle Tokyo area – the Museum of Contemporary Art will be exhibiting well-known graffiti art work from the 1970’s to the present from notorious cities of New York City to Los Angeles.  Be sure to check it out from now, until the 8th of August.  LA is the first to feature such an exhibit (YES!  We beat out NYC first!).

DMC DJ Online Battle Round 10

Guess who decided to submit a Round 10 submission to DMC DJ Online?  It’s the Bay Area’s 89 Skratch Gangstaz DJ Snayk Eyez.  This guy was big in the battle scene in the 1990’s and early 2000’s.  A remarkable turntablist with 2 tracks featured on Return of the DJ volumes 4 and 5 and has a short cameo in the documentary Scratch, by Doug Pray.  Let’s see if he can win this round.

As usual, Disneyland Resort is offering SoCal residents a 3 day Summer Fun Pass from now until September 5, 2011 for $139 – one park per day.  The pass must be used before, or on, September 5 in order to use the last 2 days within 45 days.  For $15 more, you can turn your park per day ticket into a hopper pass to get your monies worth to check out the Little Mermaid ride at Disney’s California Adventure, – if you’re  like me and would only like to waste your 1 park per day ticket at Disneyland only.  Check out the video below:

LA to New York

(photo taken by me)

Hey everyone.  I have to say I have been out for this month because I was out for vacation.  I spent my first time in New York.  Here’s some things I learned when I was over there:

– NYC has bagels and frittatas for breakfast, we have breakfast burritos.

– If you’re ever hungry, you can find hot dogs, pretzels, pizza, roasted peanuts and bagels anywhere.

– A majority of the museums have “suggested” entry prices for everyone (LA has flat rate for all).

– Trains run 24/7.

– Central Park is simply “amazing.”  One of the most beautiful parks I have ever seen.

– Always have cash on you (you can’t always charge everything on your debit/credit card).

Until next time everyone!
