dreams come true.

I’m extremely proud of my La Junta brethren ‘degruvme’ for putting in the work into making one of his dreams come true! He’s produced his first collection of tunes with some of his favorite Angeleno vocalists and we’re ready to throw the ep release and concert in DTLA on FRIDAY JANUARY 22nd!! All five singers will be on hand performing their respective songs live, with a special dance performance and excellent deejay support from VNC & F-Cast aka “The Funky Brewsterz”, as well as Yukicito and yours truly of the La Junta Sound System. The fliers I created are below:

Late-posting some photos from the absolutely amazing Las Cafeteras / Making Movies / Mariachi Manchester show at the El Rey Theater in Los Angeles’ ‘Miracle Mile’ district back on December 12th. The shots were taken on my dying iPhone 5C ;( from the deejay booth where I held it down with La Junta’s degruvme and Yukicito. Much love to all of our fam and friends that came through to support the band (and the ill deejays!).

wednesday weekly wisdoms

I was supposed to post this yesterday (it’s Thursday now), but I let my plate get a little too full. I’m going to attempt to post the weekly nuggets of wisdom that I’ve included in my self-designed day/week/month planner. I’m a bit behind in chipping away at the mountain of projects that I’d like to get done in the next few weeks–beginning with getting my planner updated for 2016–but I’ll get there soon! Here are two thoughtful and inspiring quotations that I selected for Week 1 of 2016, via author/lecturer/professor/mythology expert JOSEPH CAMPBELL:

“We must be willing to let go of the life we’ve planned, so as to have the one that is waiting for us.”

“The goal of life is to make your heartbeat match the beat of the universe, to match your nature with Nature.”
