I suppose as long as the two words "ghetto" and "fabulous" are used together in popular culture, photo shoots with busty hoochies outside my loft will be a regular occurrence.

Last night's show with Tiga was amazing. In contrast to his San Francisco appearances, this show was definitely more of a production.
The venue, Key Club was completely decked out with hi-tech lighting, and the DJ booth was set up in the middle of a completely empty stage, which was a little strange, especially when you consider some of the dingy warehouses and bars most of the events in SF take place. Nonetheless, Tiga had LA burning down, down, down, down, down. In addition to having the whole crowd bumping, fellow electro artist Matt Sims (of Mt. Sims) was in the audience with his throng of peeps, gettin down.
The set was prefaced by a live performance by Shiny Toy Guns, complete with lingere and legwarmer clad dancing girls. Nice.
Tonight, head to Long Beach if you can to catch Tommie Sunshine at Training Bra.

Not my values. Not my President.
AAARRGH! How can this be? Please say it's not true. Who are these people who claim to support this presidential candidate because of his 'moral issues'? Hmmm, let's see - lying to the American people and the world to justify his invasion of a country that never attacked us, responsible for the death of over 100,000 Iraqi citizens (profoundly immoral), destroying the environment for corporate greed and profits (profoundly immoral), giving the richest Americans huge tax breaks while continuing to stick it to the poor (profoundly immoral). I simply cannot relate to a people who value blind faith over facts. I love this country, but I have never felt so alienated, so disenfranchised and so full of contempt for my supposed country mates. Fool us once, shame on you. Fool us twice, shame on us. Get ready for the nightmare to begin all over again.
