saturday june 8 | bold pas art

This Saturday afternoon, I’ll be back in Old Pasadena for my third year deejaying at the BoldPas art event! Between last year’s sprinkly day and the more recent May gray x June gloom this year, I’ve got my fingers crossed for lots of sunshine this weekend. Regardless though, I’ll be playing lots of sunshine music! Stop by and find me posted up on the Big Bang Theory alleyway next to the Dog Haus Biergarten at 93 E. Green Street. Come out for a boogie and say hello!
Here’s the official description:

BoldPas: A Day of Art & Play in Old Pasadena * Saturday, June 8 * 12-8pm. Large, surprising, urban art installations and experiences transform the historic alleyways of Old Pasadena for one day only!

Encounter 20 surprising installations throughout Old Pasadena’s unique network of pedestrian alleys and interact with art that is BOLD – in color, scale, materials, and concept. Come play with the art, meet the artists, snap photos, and experience historic Old Pasadena with new eyes!

NBCee ya, bastards.

A middle finger goes to NBC for greenlighting and developing a new ‘sitcom’ called “Mail Order Family”. It’s based on a white man who buys a mail order bride from the Philippines to help raise his daughters. Not only do I find this offensive as a person of Filipino heritage, it is utterly offensive to me as a man, as a human being, and as a proponent of art in all forms.

Women are never to be treated as products to be purchased for mindless consumption as if via an Amazon Prime membership. To even consider airing a show with a premise of this nature, let alone as a comedy, NBC is clearly demonstrating the kind of poor taste that has hastened the network’s continuing slide into irrelevance. I definitely recommend that my family, friends, colleagues and social media audience completely boycott NBC and their already useless programming.

Please sign the petition to cancel NBC’s “Mail Order Family” at Change.Org

Gratitude goes to GABRIELA USA for creating the petition and shedding light on this unacceptable matter.
