So I’ve been traveling with Joseph quite a bit, and decided that I definitely need to start blogging about my trips. I take a good amount of pictures and usually upload it on facebook for kicks. So why not take it to the next level and blog about it.
So Joe (This is what I call Joseph Vincent, and will begin to refer him as that from now on) is a fulltime student, so the touring he does is only on the weekends. I give him a lot of props for being a full-time student and doing the music stuff on the weekends. Since I’ve started managing him both of us have been non-stop working. This previous weekend was his spring break and we both decided we were going to have a little bit of fun on this trip (Usually he’s working on a paper during deadtime while we travel.)
We did the show Friday for the AASIA over at University of New Orleans. It was a great show that had about 500kids come out? So the next day we got a chance to do some touristy junk (which I’m all about.)
This is the homie Smokey in front of the Riverfront Park!
Smokey in front of one of those ferry boats! Super reminded me of New Orleans Square at Disneyland! Super dope
Love the building architecture in NO
Forgot what Cathedral this was
Cafe Du Monde! (Beignat is dope)
French Quarter is coool.
Yoooo Thanks Daniel & Christian for showing us around during the day guys!
After that we headed back took naps, and began the adventure at night in New Orleans. Daniel dropped off about 30 pounds of crawfish for us to grub down on. HAaha Super delicious! We then started getting our drink on. They took us to Harrah’s Casino where they had a sort of Lounge in the middle of the casino. It was a great night and around 3 we decided to head towards Bourbon Street to check it out and get a “Hand Grenade”. For all the people who’s been on that street, knows whats up^.
We ended teh night around 530AM and headed to the airport to catch our flight back to LA. (Crazy Right?!)
Thanks to these girls for accompanying us to the airport after trekking with us down Bourbon Street!
Big ups to Christian & Anthony also for rolling out w/ us that night! #superdope
Overall a pretty awesome trip!!
I’ll be staying in LA for a while :)
Been having a small sort of quarterlife crisis because my birthday is coming up. So I’ve decided that I’ll be going HAM this April.
If you’ve been hanging out w/ me for the past 3-4 months or so, you may know I’ve been on this dim sum kick (Or at least know from me blabbing about it). Why? Conversation is best served over tea. I feel like DimSum is more about the conversation then its about food. I’ve actually had meetings over DimSum before lol. Anyways while eating Dim Sum, Its always nice to know of a couple dope spots.
One in particular is ELITE Restaurant is my HOOOOOOD. San Gabriel Valley….Monterey park.
700 S. Atlantic Blvd. Monterey Park, CA 91754
Dim Sum here is a bit different. Instead of the old ladys running around pushing the carts, they bring you a list and you can pick the dishes you want. The upside on this is you get your foods piping hot from the kitchen. Its not any dish thats been chilling on a old ladys cart. When I went it was pretty relax too. (I always go around noon on the weekdays.) I feel like all the dishes came out everytime we finished a dish.
The Sea Food here was ON POINT. The Shrimp game was CRAZY!
The Bakery game was aiite.
Definitely if you’re a big sea food fan this is the spot to go to. Dishes are huger then normal. Service is decent (I don’t do dimsum on weekends, so don’t blame me if its too busy!)
Why am I saying hello? In a very typical short & editted version. I haven’t really blogged in quite a while. I noticed that my english was getting rusty. So for the past month I’ve been trying to convince myself to blog. And thats where we are now.
As of late I’ve been going to a lot of Clippers game, mostly because for Christmas I got 8tickets for their game vs the Mavs & my boy Wally has season tickets and have been such a GREAT FRIEND! Hi5.
Stay in Boston. You are not welcomed back.
Home of the Los Fearless
For the past 2 weeks. @ayojin was in town and he set out to record a full-length english album, and man did he go and record a full-length english album. Getting to work with a guy that I really think kicked down the door for Asian-American Hip Hop was such a great experience, and just sulking in his work ethic was uplifting. Definitely can see that if you have enough fire in your eyes, anything is possible.
This dude worked like a friggin maniac. In 10 days he cranked out more then 16+ songs. What also is crazy is the content of his new music. Its definitely a different Jin. I really think that its his best work to date. But thats just my opinion you really got to find out yourself later this year! :)
What was also great was that my coworker Tony Au (who is currently working on a music video for Joseph Vincent) filmed the whole process of Jin’s album. The stuff you see during these sessions will blow your mind!
So during those weeks we also got the chance to have a Catch Adventures artist retreat. The roster included Jin, Joseph Vincent, and Jaeson Ma. Van Ness is still out of the country. Also joining the team was 2 new artist that we recently signed named Matik & Toestah.
Jin & Carl Choi watching a video with two new Catch Adventure artists Matik & Toestah
Of course while Jin was here the whole time he filmed a video w/ the homie Kevin Boston, but then had to shoot one more video before he left LA. Kevin got to shoot Jin’s first single from Jin’s HK sophmore album.
YEP. RED BABY (EFF YOU KEVIN BOSTON FOR WEARING THAT JERSEY)
All in all good times! :) Thanks for tuning in.
I’ll try to have more interesting topics next time! :)
Mister Rogers went onstage to accept the award — and there, in front of all the soap opera stars and talk show sinceratrons, in front of all the jutting man-tanned jaws and jutting saltwater bosoms, he made his small bow and said into the microphone, “All of us have special ones who have loved us into being. Would you just take, along with me, ten seconds to think of the people who have helped you become who you are. Ten seconds of silence.”
And then he lifted his wrist, looked at the audience, looked at his watch, and said, “I’ll watch the time.” There was, at first, a small whoop from the crowd, a giddy, strangled hiccup of laughter, as people realized that he wasn’t kidding, that Mister Rogers was not some convenient eunuch, but rather a man, an authority figure who actually expected them to do what he asked. And so they did. One second, two seconds, seven seconds — and now the jaws clenched, and the bosoms heaved, and the mascara ran, and the tears fell upon the beglittered gathering like rain leaking down a crystal chandelier. And Mister Rogers finally looked up from his watch and said softly “May God be with you,” to all his vanquished children.
