Hey. How are you? It's been a long while since ive posted something new. You've prolly figured out that i'm done with the blog. I figured it would be in good taste for me to post a formal good- bye. Initially i wasnt sure if i was really done or if i was just taking a break. I'm certain that i've lost interest in LP. I made this blog out of boredom, just for kicks. I never really intended for it to be this nearly two year excursion.
Music is emotion, it's personality. It's an extension of our feelings, our thoughts, our actions. I think i made this blog to kinda-sorta introduce myself to you and all the other folks that have been here. Many of the songs on LP make me happy and inspire me. I shared them cause i figured they might do the same for you.
I got a lot out of Las Palmas. When i think back on it it makes me feel good. I would geek out when i found a song that i couldnt wait to share. Kinda lame but 'eh.
Thanks for everything. I mean it. I'd check the views on the blog and it was awesome to see that LP had 'regulars' all around the world. Big ups for all the support. I really appreciate it. I dont think you'll realize that you allowed me be a part of something worthwhile. So again, thanks.
This is what i'm listening to right now. I've been listening to it since the start of this post. I wasnt planning on posting any music but here it is, the last song.

Take care of yourselves. Have fun. Share music. Smile.

There were a few thoughts i wanted to share with you but i cant remember what they were. I'll tell you about last Saturday. My good friend, Luis got married in Downtown Los. It was a very nice and intimate ceremony. Many of my friends were there and it was wonderful to be apart of such a joyous occasion. Afterward Lamija and i went to eat in Boyle Heights at small Mexican joint called Guisados. It's located on the corner of Cesar Chavez Blvd and St. Louis. You wont recognize anything on their menu unless you're Hispanic. They dont serve the stereotypical food that you find at Taco Bell and Del Taco. It's very unique, authentic Mexican cuisine. If you're ever there make sure you get a cup of the home made Horchata. I swear it has crack in it. Later that night we went to the wedding reception/party. It was super fun. Lots and lots of dancing. A bunch of my friends from high school were there and it's great that 4 years after we graduated there's still no love lost. Super congratulations to Luis And Stefany!!

I've found a lot of great music this week so i'll try do more posts in the next couple of days. i'm thinking of changing the design of the blog again or switching to tumblr. It seems like you can do more on tumblr in terms of design and customization.
Make sure you listen to the mix in TLB.
I hope all of you are well. Have a great weekend.

Pool Party

This post shouldve been done back in November. Justin, i'm sorry for the lag. Pool Party is a great punk band. A very refreshing break from all the indie and folk rock that's going around now-a-days.

Lately, the hardest part of each post has been finding the right image. I love art and photography so posting the right image is almost as important as posting good music. If you know of any photographers or artists that i should check out leave a comment.
This post is long overdue. i just haven't been in the mood to blog of late. I haven't been listening to much music lately so that might be why.
My spring break is this week. So far it's been good. On Monday night i got to see Hanni El Khatib and Rumspringa for free at the Bootleg. Both sets were awesome. A song and a half into Hanni's set i realized that Rock n' Roll is not dead, it's alive and well. I recorded some of their sets. I'll upload the footage onto the youtube soon. I went to the L.A. Art Walk tonight. As always there was an abundance of gorgeous women in Downtown. Lots of black spandex and heals. Being a guy, there can never be enough women in black spandex and heals. Oh yeah, the exhibits were good too.
If you've never been, the Art Walk takes place on the third Thursday of every month in Downtown Los. The galleries are free. It covers a couple of blocks but Spring St. is where most of the action takes place.
A heads up: The Flyball is this Saturday. There's an old flyer posted in the middle of this page on the right side with the location and contact info. Sunday night is the opening of MOCA's street art exhibit. It's supposed to be a really big event with lots of famous artists involved from around the world. i will definitely be there.
I hope you all are. Have a good weekend.
