NoNo at SXSW 2012

So I was determined to go to SXSW 2012.
I decided to drive 860 miles from Nashville TN to Austin TX.
Yes, and by myself.

I honestly cant begin to describe the amazing experience I had at SXSW.
I was defiantly blessed. I stayed in some of the most luxurious places.

I didn't capture everything but I did
a daily recap for the 6 days I was there.
I hope you guys enjoy looking through my eyes for that week.
All images/videos captured with my mobile device.

Day 1:
Me, being delusional via driving from 6am to 7pm across country
finding ways to entertain myself and stay awake.
Finally getting there and making new friends etc.

Day 2:
You can see the streets in the daytime as I wondered
from venue to venue.
This video contains
performances by:
The Drums, Santigold, & Theophilus London,

mobbin around in petty cabs with the Browntourage
and eating french fries for dinner.
I also met Dee from Deeandricky which was so fab <3

Day 3:
I attended the Psych Fest which was pretty rad.
Saw so much good music I never even knew of.
They had 3 stages and If I went to the girls room I could potentially 'discover' a new band while standing in line!
For example that band at 0:51, I was passing by and just fell in love with their
interesting movie soundtrack type sound....
This video contains
performances by:
Purling Hiss, Mikal Cronin, The Growlers, THEE Satisfaction, & Hottub.

Day 4:
Was one of the best days of all. I had VIP passes for the Spin Shed.
I got to see Santigold again and closer. Her dancers are so bad ass!!!
I also met Das Racist who pretty much stole my heart!
This video contains performances by:
Best Coast, Santigold, Big K.R.I.T., Das Racist & Main Attrakionz.

Day 5:
This day was pretty epic too because I met so many dope people.
Many who were only my internet friends... til then.
I spent most of my day at the Thrasher showcase.
I didn't record so much this day I was doing that whole 'living in the moment' thing.
This video contains performances by:
Theophilus London & Solange Knowles.

Day 6:
Last day at SXSW I kept it low key and chilled at
the 5th Annual The Park Poolhouse BBQ Jam!!!
They had The Park and Electric Wire Hustle jamming and an open mic.
Saw a bunch of my loving friends from the bay
which made it the best way to end my trip!

There are also some pics from sxsw I took out on my tumblr:

check it.

Business Cards

I've been thinking of getting my own business cards done since I keep going to new
cities and meeting new people.
I asked a couple of really talented graphic designers to help me out.
Seeing that these talented individuals are pretty busy and getting to my lil ol' business card might not be their priority,
i decided to quickly make my own to use while I wait for my 'real cards'.
I wonder what reactions I will get from people when I hand them my card?
I wonder if people will take me serious?
I wonder If I can get sued for using images from magazines?
I wonder If I can call this 'found art'?
I wonder how much I'm 'saving the planet' by making these cards?
I wonder who is going to call me?

what do yall think?

On The Streets.....Nashville

Spotted on the streets aka The Zombie Shop
in Nashville, TN

This Uuumazing Malcolm X leather letterman jacket!
I would do anything to have a jacket like this in my size!!!

This gentleman also wore some vintage ostrich boots from Local Honey with
this look which adds that undeniable southern touch.

On The Streets..... Nashville

Spotted on the streets: this Los Angeles throwback Lakers jacket!
Being that I am from LA running the Nashville streets,
I HAD to capture this look.
Anyone wearing Cali paraphernalia out here is getting
approached (harassed) by me with love.

Omg yall (whoever follows this blog) im sorry for abandoning you.
I started this blog when i moved to Europe to document my adventures and since i been back my grammar has hit rock bottom and i've only done a few post since.
not that i dont have anymore adventures, its just that tumblr came along and ruined it for me.
so instead of writing and posting pics i just get to post pics and blah blah blah...
the point is that i decided to come back this time with a new name!


why? because i need to stick with one or two names you will associate me with.
again, this blog will just be a bunch of what i think.
and basically 'the real me'
im not a blogger tho, i just take pictures a lot.
im also not a writer im just on my computer a lot.

i hope this works out for me
