Our buddy Werc Alvarez is putting together a new website. He wants to feature this video this video on it, which used to be part of our online video network; OnOurWayToStardom.TV.
Since that site is long gone and “On Our Way To Stardom” is now simply STRDM, we changed up the title graphics so it can point people in the right direction.
If you’ve never seen it before, take the next 10 minutes to meet this amazing artist.
I’ve never really felt a pressure to put things out according to a certain time frame. I haven’t gotten to the point where we try and release t-shirts based on traditional seasons. Or release projects just because it’s been a while. I try to put out an idea or concept that’s been thought out thoroughly. And with limited resources it might take longer than the next guy, but I’m not in this for a quick buck or a fast buzz. I feel when you’ve made a commitment to explore an idea regardless of how long it takes and only release new things when you feel they are ready; only then can you know you’re giving it your all. And I’m not condoning obsessive behavior, I’m just not a fan of haste. So if you’ve been following along for the past few years, things might be happening slowly, but I’m hopeful it’ll all be worth it in the end. The next few months are going to be spent working and growing. We might even need an intern or two to help out. If you’re interested send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Last year we had our Dilla Day celebration where we created a free, Jay Dee inspired beat tape (which is still available in our MUSIC tab). We also created a memorial candle which we sold at our Dilla memorial party. The proceeds were donated to charity and we gave donuts to everyone who showed up. Thank you for that.
This year we’re not having a party, but we are auctioning off 3 prints of our memorial candle artwork. These are mockups we made that are in our private collection. Not for sale.
But if you’d like to own one, all you have to do is send an email (to email@example.com) with your highest bid, and all of your contact information (include social media handles). The top three bids will be sent this framed piece and the proceeds from the sale will go to a good cause.
Please spread this around to anyone you know who might want this. Thanks, and happy Dilla Day.
PS. – The J Dilla memorial candle is back in our online store!
Bulletproof Tiger had an exceptional year in 2013, after their relocation to Southern California. Now they bring in the new year with a month-long residency in Los Angeles. Catch them tonight for their first of four nights at Club Los Globos.
The pop-up shop was a success and the opening night of the Anml Haus was a blast. Thanks to everyone who made it out.
The Anml Haus is presenting the new show by the Maintain crew. In addition to some special guest artists, we will be opening up a pop-shop for the night. If you’ve wanted a hat or a tee, come pick one up tomorrow.
So after last week’s wetness, we are pretty much out of the summer mentality, right? It might not officially be Fall but it’s coming. We just thought we’d remind you hoodies and Autumn weather is the best time of year!
New stuff coming soon.
