Still shootin' down in Portland. Everybody who is in or passing through Portland needs to stop by my new studio space for some photo shoot.

Rocky from Wampire

Zack from Breakfast Mountain

and one for the gentlemen:

Check this and more out on my flickr


There is a different sound that is coming out of this city and Go! Machine is going to embrace it. Hip hop is an ever evolving sound and we feel that Seattle has a lot of new artists pushing the limits of this genre. The idea of having fun is prominent, the days of the backpacker are over, and the concert goer wants to be entertained. Go! Machine is like a Voltron robot that when all these bands come together, the power combined is unstoppable. It's time to stop being outdated with our music, and fly into the future. Hug it, love it, scream it, shout it. Go! Machine.

Maybe Post-Its are better than Idea Tape.

ESPO - A Love Letter For You

Stephen Powers aka ESPO, who is one my favorite graf writers ever, is doing this amazing project in Philly right now. He's putting up murals that express love through a series of quotes in a love letter. Shit is filthy, and he continues to push the game. Thanks OFS. More information and pictures HERE.

Man, that was a fun house party! I got drizzed on tray service wine. Somehow I still got carded. Here are some pics of Champagne Champagne and Fresh Espresso doing what they do best. I would've liked to got more pics of the inside of this epic mansion, but even Rabid Child gets tired sometimes.

There are more pics on my FLICKR.

Tigerbeat - "If I Ever Jaw In Love"

Last August, Mad Rad & Tigerbeat did a show at King Cobra and I must say it was a very fun event. What some of ya'll missed out on was the epic soundcheck. There was a problem with background beats at the time, so I took it upon myself to sing some acapella to check the mics. I sang what else but Shai?? So now this year, I get the tribute remix by TB. This shit is so clowning, I had to make it.

McGinn likes to PARTY!

Apparently, our potential new mayor has a keen interest in making the nightlife better in Seattle. Remember how Nickels kept fucking up tearing down Pike & Pine to put in unused parking lots? Or how people complain about living next to loud clubs?!? Well, it seems as if Mike McGinn has got our backs on this one. Drinking and transportation til 3?!? YES! I am down. Check out his full plan.

Seattle’s music scene is already nationally recognized and admired, and our many bars, nightclubs, and performers are essential revenue sources for the city. But it can be even better if the city helps continue its growth by encouraging it as we do other industries.

In 2008 alone, the music industry in Seattle directly created over 11,000 jobs, with more than 2,000 businesses generating $1.2 billion in annual sales, as well as $487 million in earnings. The industry also generated $90 million in state and local sales and B&O taxes.

Beyond revenue, our music scene also creates vibrant and active neighborhoods, with customers from bars and clubs patronizing other local businesses throughout the day and night.

Nightclubs, bars, pubs, and other music venues — along with Seattle’s many bands, DJs, and entertainers — deserve a safe and supportive environment to earn their living. Similarly, residents living near music venues have the right to enjoy their homes in safety and peace.

I believe that reasonable people can work together to develop rules governing nightlife and nearby development — rules that keep Seattle’s music scene thriving.

• In order to help ensure safety and peace around bars and clubs, late-night patrols should be increased in “hotspot” neighborhoods.

• To help cut down on incidents after establishments close, the city should work with the state Liquor Control Board to encourage staggered closing times.

• To help cut down on drinking and driving, transportation choices such as light rail, taxi service, and buses need to be accessible until at least 3 a.m.

• New residential development must not be able to drive out existing nightlife establishments.

• Any new development within the proximity of an existing bar or club should be required to build sound-proofing measures into their plans.

• To maintain an open dialogue between the nightlife community and the city, the Seattle Music & Nightlife Association should have quarterly meetings with the mayor.

• The Seattle Office of Film + Music must remain open and active.

• In order to help maintain an environment where Seattle’s music scene can continue to thrive, the Seattle City of Music Initiative must remain in place and will be improved upon through work with the Seattle Music Commission.

• To further encourage the arts, the next Families and Education Levy should include funding for music and art programs in Seattle public schools.

Radjaw Mixtape

Since Swerve had to go tweet that this was back up online after 3 years, I figured to throw it on the blog. And why not today?? It is almost the first day of Autum, I haven't slept in 3 days, and I am DJing tonight at Capitol Club with DJ Tony Dungy and DJ 100Proof. I'm bringing vinyl.

Throwback posters.

What a killer performance this man came with last night at The Croc! Here's some snaps of D.Black and Spaceman rippin it up. I was shootin pics for SNAPS across the street at my place and missed most of the first part of the show, but did see Dyme Def drop a filthy performance as well. I'm sure They Live! and the other cats killed it too. All in all, it was a great show and a fun night!

Rabid Child is having a show coming up in the next few weeks, and here is the poster for it. He will be showcasing a lot of the up and coming hip hop artists in this city including Mad Rad, They Live!, Champagne Champagne, Fresh Espresso & Macklemore. This guy is the truth, and it's great to see him step away from the live shots for a change. He is capturing everyone's raw personal emotion while they kick it in his studio.
