Terminator Too Judgment Play

We've all been there before: a bunch of friends are anxious to go out and do something fun on a Saturday night, but they're all tired of the same old bar scene.  "There's nothing to do!" exclaims one friend.  "I want to see something exciting and new!" exclaims another.

Stop your whining!  Come with me if you want to live...

...and experience the most exciting, titillating and hilarious show on the west coast: Terminator Too Judgment Play!

BAIT x Street Fighter

"Street Fighter" was probably the first arcade game that I ever played, and has been a part of my life in one way or another ever since.  I remember saving my snack money so that I could stop by the convenience store on the way home from school and play some Street Fighter with my friends.  I've owned various iterations of the game over the years and I'm currently refining my button mashing skills with the latest Street Fighter x Tekken game.

I only recently discovered that there is a fighting game community (yes, there is an actual community of people who eat, breathe, and sleep fighting games), and when I heard that Ono-san, the producer of Street Fighter, would be at an art show hosted by pop culture store BAIT, I had to go meet him.

About a Boy and a Toy

Let me tell you a story about a little boy who loved playing with toys and using his imagination.

This little boy grew up in a happy family and never really had much to complain about.  His favorite toys were robots from the show "Transformers", and he had most of the popular ones: Optimus Prime, Grimlock, Shockwave, and Thundercracker just to name a few.

But there was one toy that was always hard to find:  his favorite Transformer, Soundwave.

Super Saturday

People often ask me, "What do you do for fun in Los Angeles?"

I always have trouble coming up with a descriptive answer because there isn't a set group of things that I constantly do to entertain myself.  I usually end up giving a vague answer like, "I dunno.  I like to go out and do stuff; enjoy the city."

Perfect Sushi

Part of being an artist is never being able to know what perfection is.  We all have an idea of what it might be like and we all strive for it, but once we've reached what we think is perfection, we quickly realize that there is still room for improvement.  One person who has come close to achieving perfection is Jiro, the main subject of an amazing documentary called Jiro Dreams of Sushi.

Rhythm of the Factory

What does the new Redbull RB9 race car sound like when it's being built from the ground up?  Kinda like a techno song...
