DUSK RIP

DJ DUSK (1974-2006)
R.I.P. HOMIE…
We were just becoming good friends, I can’t believe you left us. You looked out for me harder than anyone else since I moved to LA. Your music & parties were beyond almost everything else I experienced since I moved here, but your friendship and spirit will be missed the most.
we miss you already…
legends never die…

..in little china

Well, you travel thousands of miles away from NYC, just to bump into–NYC people!!
Spotted at Club Pegasus in Shanghai, L to R:
Mike Mo, Michna, Daddy Dog, and friends. About an hour later the police came into the club (wearing helmets with tinted visors) and shut ’em down. People started to make “WOOP WOOP!” sounds. I tried to take a picture and TROUBLE. I got surrounded by cops, security, bar managers, and rubberneckers. All yelling at me in Chinese. The cops were trying to take my camera, and scroll thru the pictures of the night, so I scrolled showing them there were no pics of the helmetted men. I was the royal assneck foreigner. Close call. (By the way it is not uncommon to see people on the street with amputated limbs)

ShanghaiLab.jpg
Here in Shanghai there is a new place called Lab. It was established this year by DJ V-Nutz. It’s like hanging out at a skatepark but for DJ’s. So heads come meet, hang, mix, juggle, use the WiFi (pronounced “Wifey”) and talk mad ish about music. And usually there are foreigners so its a worldly nerd out. Did you know there are no record stores in mainland China? Not one. Just stores that sell CD’s and of course…DVD!DVD!!DVD!!! it’s out of control here. I got Lost Season 3. Canal Street got nuthin’. Anyways, the Lab is a dope place, mad decks, couches, roof access for BBQ, walls to paint, upstairs video den, and free. Also totally independent. Tonight I am DJing at Pegasus, 98 Huai Hai Zhong Road…See you there!

Kobe 4 MVP?

rick_fox.jpg
Let me preface this post by saying I am no fan of the Los Angeles Lakers. In fact, some might call me a hater when it comes to anything purple & gold. See, I used to live and work in Southern California at the height of the latest Laker Dynasty (2000-2003). I’ve witnessed the collapse of the Blazers in 2000, the Robert Horry heartbreaker against Sacramento, and the Derek Fisher .02 second shot against the Spurs. I still believe games at Staples Center are called in a way that is beneficial to large market cities such as L.A. with NBA superstars such as Kobe and Shaq. I’ve observed many unreasonable “flop” calls, and wrong call continuations resulting with the inevitable “and-1.” I’ve endured countless hours of Southern California sports-talk homers praising Kobe and Shaq, Shaq and Kobe, Kobe vs Shaq, Shaq vs Kobe, Kobe Kobe Kobe, Shaq Shaq Shaq, etc. I even had to deal with Rick Fox… Rick Fox!!! Not to mention, the endless office jokes I received about being a Clips fan (Darius, what happened?).
I have since moved to NYC, and for some narcissistic reason, I can’t ignore this storied franchise. I still find myself tuning into SoCal sports talk radio shows to keep tabs on everyone’s favourite Southern California organized sports team. Only because I thought the Laker’s were going to be bad this year, and I can finally get a chuckle at the whole situation (everyone knew they would stink last year, so that doesn’t count).
Well, the joke is on me… and I can not believe what I’m about to say;
Hats off to the Los Angeles Laker’s and Kobe Bryant for their remarkable 2006 season. Don’t be fooled, I am not saying I am a fan, but now that they are somewhat considered and underdog, it makes them a wee bit harder to root against. Anywhoo, the point of this blog is:
Steve Nash will be named MVP for the second year in a row. When any basketball enthusiast knows Kobe is most deserving (scoring leader, 81pts in 3 quarters, blah). Personally, if I had a vote, it would go to Kobe first, LeBron gets second and Nash somewhere down the line. It’s an understatement to say the team around Kobe is awful… Luke Walton? Yet, Kobe has the Lakers sitting at the 7th seed in the West… Smush Parker? In other words, Kobe got screwed… Devon George? And tonight, when he faces Nash, I’m sure he is not going to do anything crazy to prove anyone wrong, especially the MVP voters… Chris Mihm?
My “bold” Game 2 prediction: Kobe drops 45+
P.S. Regarding Coach Of The Year honors. Don’t get me wrong, Little General is a great coach, but for the 2006 season, he is not deserving of Coach Of The Year status when Allie McDunleavy’s father got the Clippers in the playoffs?! Yes, I said Clippers and Playoffs in the same breathe. How great would it be to see both L.A. teams matched up in round 2?
