i really need to step up my photography skills! but here are leftovers from summer. so many keen moments not captured on camera but that’s ok. the weather lately has got me in denial that summer is over yet. yes, i realize it’s mid-sept already.
1. clothes fresh out the dryer
2. green lights when i’m running late
3. record digging
this post has been stuck in draft limbo. oops. this trip happened in the beginning of july. being the patriotic americans that we are, me and my neighsbro set off to canada for july 4th hah.
why montreal? that’s the number one question we got from both our friends and the people we met in montreal lol. even though it’s not a hotbed for tourists, it was probably one of my favorite trips. live music, architecture, bike-friendly streets, the FOOOD, and the european feel of the city. my favorite thing about montreal is the PEOPLE! met so many chill folks.
they don’t really play rap in bars doe.
it’s grimy, politically charged, diverse, eccentric… a very unique city. air canada overbooked my return flight which means $200 voucher and comin back fo dat ass! (ok, maybe toronto instead heh)
montreal central hostel
fitz & follwell bike tour
kalmunity live improv lyricists, poets, singers, and musicians
o’thym the food is top notch.. oh and its BYOB
This past weekend, me and a couple of friends headed over to Griffith Park for Soulnic– a house music picnic thrown by the good folks at Extra Mild Sauce. Drack muse and Derrick Wize killed it! Seriously had the best time dancing for 6 hours straight. The weather was perfect, the beautiful sight of people gettin down to house, kids running around, 100 people doin the electric slide… all kinds of amazing. I have no pictures because I lost my phone on Sunday tho 😦
My favorite part was when they dropped this track 🙂
such a dope lineup. visionaries, people under the stairs, zion i, evidence, fashawn, blu, chali 2na, planet asia, strong arm steady, ugly duckling, and rebel to the grain. it’s too bad i only saw the last couple of headliners because i came late. it was hot as a mutha… i can’t see why the observatory couldn’t turn on their A/C. it sucks because towards the end during visionaries you can tell the crowd was runnin on fumes. despite the conditions, i’m still grateful to finally see the visionaries live and to see all these dope crews grace the same stage.
last friday, i saw mayer hawthorne and the county. he did not disappoint and he sounds exactly like he does on the record. once i figure out how to upload video to my mac from the lumix i will post it.
some of my cousins and i headed up to seattle for memorial day weekend to visit my cousin. blessed with AMAZING weather!
