[9 Sep 2015 | Comments Off on Orgullosos De Estar Aqui (2006) – Hurricane Katrina – 10 years Later | ]

I have not touched my blog in 5 years and after coming in here and looking around I am quite happy with the past content. This post is dedicated to some previous work that changed my life at the time which I had done in 2006 for the now defunct Current TV. This channel was championed by Al Gore. It was a radical concept that allowed regular folks to submit original documentary content and regular viewer would vote online for submissions to go the air. The network paid the independent …

Renegade Vigilante Video  – Bike thief gets punked

Do you hate bike thiefs or any other type of criminals for that matter?  This video might make you feel better, maybe.  In this video some citizens had enough with a local bike thief and they finally decided to take matters into their own hands.  They set up an ambush scene with a hidden camera and a bait bike to catch him in the act. After a couple of nights he gets caught ‘redhanded’ stealing the bait bike then gets blasted by dozens of paintballs.  He attempts to retaliate with …

Koshary, Shisha, Tabla & Cairo Traffic

Some of us like it rough & dirty and Cairo Egypt is city that would not be considered  clean or smooth by any western standards.  I can not speak for the very nice and westernized areas of the city, I am only speaking about the heart of Cairo.  I spent a month and a half there once many years ago and endured dirt and pollution into my skin and lungs daily.  I enjoyed it so much that I used my 9 hour layover to go back to Cairo and see …

[21 Jul 2009 | Comments Off on The Ferocious Few live at Dolores Park 7-19-09 | ]

Video from this past Sunday at Dolores Park:
San Francisco and The Ferocious Few have a symbiotic relationship.  The city provides music friendly street corners to play in and the duo returns a raw original rock sound from the gut that stops pedestrians in their tracks.  They can be found anywhere from 9th and Irving, to 4th and Market, to 16th and Valencia and of course the cosmic home base, Dolores Park.
The first time I saw drummer Daniel Aguilar and guitarist Francisco Fernandez at Dolores Park was in the Summer of …

Quick Review of La Teta Asustada (Milk of Sorrow)

First of all this movie’s official English title translation, Milk of Sorrow, is NOT correct.  La Teta Asustada actually translates to ‘the scared tit.’ Those crazy anglos strike again.  I finally had a chance to watch this award winning film that also caused some controversy within Peru cultural constituents.
This movie was directed by directed and writen by Claudia Llosa, who is also the niece of recognized Peruvian writer Mario Vargas Llosa.  She beautifully portrays the story of Fausta, played by Magaly Solier, who suffers from ‘la teta asustada,’ a psychological …

Cumbia music in Peru had its golden age starting back in the 60’s with a style called Chicha. It took the Colombian cumbia roots but added the diverse Afro-Peruvian rhythms and Andean intrumental influences with a surf guitar sound, thus Peruvian cumbias became characterized as psychedelic.  Chichas became a thing of the past of course and the music became considered cheesy old people party music.
As of two years ago cumbia in Peru has once again taken the front seat as the popular music but with a more comercial sound.  Los …

Have you ever heard of a band that plays for cats?  If not, then you must check out “The Wiggles,” the newest band in town that has found their niche playing only for cats.  Jeff Brown, the producer, a very talented actor featured in various TV episodes as well as a Blue Man Group member, and also one of my oldest friends came up with this idea.  this is what Tilzy.tv had to say about it:
“Like any well-executed satire, The Tender Morsels captures a niche genre of rock, one where …

Much respect to Jelly Donut’s lastest reprise antics as the gansta rappin dude dressed in a giant jelly donut costume.  He is hilarious.  If you are not familiar with Jelly Donut’s work, first check out this humorous video on Jelly Donut for Current TV here.  This will set the stage for the following clip better. Or maybe you think a rapping donut is funny as is.  His latest video called “McCain Be Old” deserves your attention now.

The contemporary Nu Disco sub-genre of dance music is revered by people who love its graceful tempo and have experienced its strange magical dancefloor powers.  This magic returns to San Francisco on Saturday September 27th 2008 when the VHS crew and myself present Paul T along with Jeno and Leonard a non-club location.

Paul Takahashi, aka Paul T, is an underground culture trendsetter whose disco djing skills have earned him high degree accolades in the avant Nu Disco scenes.  Paul T sees  Disco through different lens.  He drops drippy filtered psychedelic …
