WALLPAPER // Vaughn Gittin Jr. – Team Falken Monster Energy Ford Mustang

By on Jan 31, 2012 in MOTOR WORK | 0 comments

Still to this day, I’m amazed by this photo I took back in 2010. The frame features Vaugh Gittin Jr. whipping around the final course of Formula D at Irwindale. I’m surprised I even captured something as awesome as this. For the photo geeks out there, this capture was shot on a Nikon D80 equipped with a Sigma 70-200mm. The settings were a shutter speed of 1/60, f-stop at f/6.3, and ISO at 100. Also as another little treat for photogs and drift fans alike, I’ve uploaded some wallpaper links. Feel free to download and share them with your friends. WALLPAPER: 1920×1080 – Team Falken Monster Energy Ford Mustang 1280×720 – Team Falken Monster Energy Ford...

MUSIC // Mecca:83 Releases DAYBREAK EP

By on Jan 30, 2012 in MUSIC | 0 comments

Mecca:83 hit us up about his new EP release entitled DAYBREAK which features some of the coolest experimental hip hop vibes around. If you’re familiar with Freddie Joachim, then you’ll definitely dig this release which was impressively created within 24 hours. Mecca:83 has his EP up on Bandcamp with a “name your price” option. So basically if you love the beats, it’s basically for free. However, all funds from this EP drop will be donated to UK Charity Mind. So if you’re looking to help out more in 2012, this is a great opportunity to help a charitable cause while grabbing some fresh beats. Lastly here are some words directly from Mecca: “I didn’t really have any theme set down for this release – I kina figured that would be cheating! – I literally just created whatever came into my head…and flipped whatever samples were...

CINEMA // On Another Level With Avicii’s House For Hunger

By on Jan 27, 2012 in MUSIC | 0 comments

Last (last) weekend, I had the opportunity to film and photograph Avicii’s House For Hunger event through the awesome people at At Night Management. I was supposed to release the film last week, but my video editing hardware had technical difficulties. My old graphics card was problematic, my OS was dragging, and in no way I would be able to release a proper video for Avicii. With my critical work ethics, I decided to postpone the edit until last weekend.   Last Saturday, I picked up a brand spankin’ new 13″ MacBook Air to feed my video editing needs. It has to be one of my favorite purchases! I’m overly impressed with the product as it served my video editing needs well. I’ll save my review for later. I’ve mentioned all the camera gear used in my prior post, but as a reminder, I used a Nikon D7000 accompanied by a Sigma 24-70mm f/2.8 and Sigma...

A couple days back Afrojack dropped his unstoppable track “Can’t Stop Me” with Shermanology. I just heard it yesterday, but this new track blew me away. I think it really is a brilliant step forward from his hit “Take Over Control.” Afrojack has officially launced the 2012 start. Let the EDM games begin.
