Everybody Loves Music @ Gua Rapo #2

20 03 2008


Once again, Joe, Juan and Dmitri are throwing another shindig at Gua Rapo. The mojitos, house music and South American fare will make you forget its 34 degrees outside. On a side note, I’m loving the flyer for each dj’s description. Instead of posting what labels they represent, you get their deep darkest secrets.

Dj Vadim is a Douchebag!!!

15 02 2008

According to a Van City resident…

I guess a world class hip hop dj like Vadim doesn’t get love when he’s not familiar with MTV’esque artists like Flo-rida. To each his own Vadim. You’re still a great producer and dj to many. Read the below dialogue that stirred this whole entry. Also check out my small 2 min clip of him playing in my friend’s backyard here. Excuse the horrible recording.

o i was dj’g in vancouver this week and this guy came over to request some songs whilist i was spinning.
guy – ‘psssss, can i ask for a song’
me – ‘cool’
guy – ‘ u got any hip hop’
– i was spinning q tip – all in(produced by jay dee). but i was like –
me ‘ like wat???’ i replied with an inquisitve shrugg of the shoulders
guy -‘ tupac – california love’
me – ‘ sorry aint got that’ ( i do have it but i ant gonna pull that out unless its a life n death situation or like nye or something…)
guy ‘ well wat about some nicklebag, j-lo, anastasia or flo???’
me ‘ sorry dude, i dont play that kinda stuff…’ i replied. i aint never even heard of flo?

guy ‘ wat kinda hip hop dj are u, u dont know flo, u dont play california love…??’ the guy asked in a urr disgucted kinda tone.
me ‘ one that dj’s all over the world from brooklyn to LA to tokyo, sydney, paris, london, brazil , india etc…..’ i replied in a stern authoritive voice
guy ‘ well, then u are a douche bag then’ he replied!!!!!!
so there we have it folks – iam a douche bag according to one vancouverite!

Nazie and Geng’s Wedding 1.19.08 – the Photobooth Sessions

12 02 2008


This is what happens when you give me a Canon EOS 30D to play with. See the rest of the photos on the groom’s Flickr. Many thanks to Kitti and Nazie for inviting me and giving me the opportunity to do something fun and creative.

*Note – above photo was taken as a test run by someone else. I made it to the wedding a tad bit late. But check out the fun family and friend photos I did manage to take.
