Today, I was doing some cleaning and I found some journals from when I first came down to LA… here’s an excerpt (fyi, it’s in CAPS because that is how my handwriting was):

I’VE BEEN IN LA FOR A MONTH! A LOT HAS HAPPENED. I’VE BEEN BUSY W/ MY INTERNSHIP, JOB-HUNTING, UCLA INTERCAMPUS VISITOR PROG, TRIPS, EXTRACURRICULARS, ETC.
HIGHLIGHTS OF LA SO FAR:
-NEMO SHOWS, OH & HYPERCYCLE, TOO
MY INTERNSHIP @ BRAGMAN NYMAN CAFARELLI / MAGNA GLOBAL LICENSING
I know most of the time I promote LA-based events… well, here’s one for you Bay Area people! This Friday, the very talented Goh Nakamura and my good friend, Big Phony, will be taking the stage at Cafe Du Nord in SF! (it’s Big Phony’s first time performing up there, so please show him some love!)
Hey all, thank you so much to those who have submitted music videos to me so far. I’ve received some pretty cool stuff and there’s still a lot to go through!
Here’s an UPDATE: I’d like to see more music videos where I feel like I’m watching a narrative film… where for a moment I actually think I’m watching a movie instead of a music video (here’s a good example from last year’s program… another example would...Read more
Bleh… I’ve had a scratchy throat for a few days now and was trying to avoid it getting worse by drinking Emergen-C every morning… but alas, I think it’s gotten me. My stomach’s also not feeling well. TMI? Yes. I think so. Grr, I blame it on the week I was freelancing at my old company. That place is a petri dish of germs!!! It kinda reminds me of 30 Rock’s “Flu Shot” episode… the part where Liz starts imagining everyone on the crew is a zombie w/ the flu… oh man, I love how sickly Kenneth looks… it’s scary, haha.
Is freakin’ hard. For me.
I almost feel I need to fast from just being on the Internet altogether! But… baby steps… baby steps…
So why the fast? Well, cuz’ I’ve come to realize how much time I’ve wasted on sites such as Facebook. Here I am… at home… unemployed… and just rotting away in front of my computer. It’s really horrible.
My current goal is to get outta the house everyday and do something productive. I know this is so easy for most people… but with things so slow lately… I feel so unmotivated to do a...Read more

2008 was a good year for me. I turned 25, moved in with the bf, produced a few projects, established some solid relationships with girls, got baptized, quit my job, began exploring new career options, and started hugging my mom (yah, I know it’s sad that I never did before!). I think 2009 is going to be interesting…
New Year’s resolution? I didn’t really make one… but my first goal is to find a commercial agent! If anyone can refer me to one, let me know ;D
In the meantime, I’m freelancing at my old company this week (gott...Read more
Just wrapped a music vid shoot for my friend Bobby aka Big Phony’s song “Words That Define.” It was directed by our friend, super artsy visionary, Chris Chan Lee. Chris actually shot everything with his own camera… some HD camcorder from Canon~ teeny tiny! The lighting setups were all fairly simple, but I know Chris has “artsy” in mind. I’m really interested in seeing how it all turns out! Oh, a...Read more
My good friends,
Tatum Jones, are having a LIVE streaming show + Q&A this Wednesday, December 17 from 7pm to 9pm PST. When the time comes, you can join in on the fun at:
Tonight, my friend John took my gfs and I to a sushi joint over in Palms claiming it to be the best sushi in the U.S. Apparently all the fish is imported from Tokyo and other parts of the world. And well, I must say… it was pretty freakin’ delicious.
I’m very picky and I don’t eat a lot of things. This restaurant is cool cuz’ you don’t actually order from a menu. What they do is they go around and ask what you DON’T eat. Mine kinda went something like this:
Me: I don’t eat any shellfish…
SZ: Oh, so no oyster? Clam?Read more
