The 2013 Coachella lineup is announced, and while by the time you read this I’m sure this news (and the photo below) have been regurgitated to you in more ways that you’d like to mention, well, here it is again in full swing… along with a music video of each artist and/or band for your ear exploration and pleasure. Basically, the filtering process will go as follows: pick music video on YouTube with most views, unless I really like a particular song of theirs. Because, as we have all been reminded before, numbers don’t lie. Also, before you get all Judge Judy on me, Yes I am a nerd and Yes I am doing this for fun.

“Everything is energy and that’s all there is to it. Match the frequency of the reality you want and you cannot help but get that reality. It can be no other way. This is not philosophy. This is physics.”
This quote is widely attributed to the late Albert Einstein but after doing a little digging–meaning scrolling my finger ever so tirelessly on my laptop– I found a site that traced facts down to the nitty-gritty and found otherwise. Take that, Wiki.
Apparently the quote was by someone who, get this: doesn’t even exist.
And here’s a quote that Einstein DID say (don’t worry, I did some reso too)
“Once you can accept the universe as matter expanding into nothing that is something, wearing stripes with plaid comes easy.”

No..they’re not. But people are.

Why do white people ruin everything
You’re at a venue trying to get a hold of your friend and your phone dies.
You just started looking up who played the orange-haired girl in the movie The Fifth Element and your phone dies.
You’re lost and need directions but wait…your phone just died.
At this point, you’re either desperate enough to trade your left pinky for a charger or you just give up. Does this sound familiar? Is there a solution? Yes there is. It’s called Everpurse, and it’s a Kickstarter project that produces a product that is both stylish and practical.
ps. It’s Milla Jojovich

Oakland artist Slvstr has done some design work for my friend Donnis, and just recently created the cover art for Kreashawn’s new album, Somethin ‘Bout Kreay. His artwork sometimes evokes the likes of New York graffiti artist Keith Haring, but in essence his designs tend to be very whimsical with saturated colors and a hip hop feel. My favorites are his hand drawn typography and illustrations shown here:
