Fresh Off the Boat (TV series) review

Fresh Off the Boat aired on February 4th, 2014, 8:30pm on the ABC channel. There was an event at the Circle club in Manhattan for a viewing party hosted by the main actor’s dad, Jeff Yang. The club can only hold 1,000 people but over 1,400 RSVP’d. It was cold and I didn’t feel like waiting in line, buy expensive drinks and then standing up to watch the show while another 999 people along with the child actor and his … Continue reading

The shoot at CBGB

Last year, I attended a Youtube Space NY event and I saw a set that looked like the legendary punk venue CBGB. I thought it was just a good recreation, but then I learned that it was the actual walls, bar and stage of the original. Being a fan of the punk rock scene, I just had to film in it! After the grueling suspense to whether I can or cannot film in it, since they said I needed ‘special … Continue reading

Kevin Owens shirt

Wrestling shirts has been a little stale lately. I haven’t bought one for a while now. But when a popular indie wrestler like Kevin Steen shows up and makes an impact, that’s when the creative will get on their thinking caps on and start making something cool for the fans to spend their money on. Load and be hold, his new in ring name is Kevin Owens. It seems like regular name. But look at it again. K.O. That’s pretty … Continue reading

So I’m starting my Youtube strategy again, I got a new show idea and I’d like to see if my hunch and what I’ve learned throughout my time doing Youtube video is correct. So I’m taking the free workshops at the Youtube Space NYC in Chelsea. This time, the topic is the “10 Fundamentals of a Creative Strategy on Youtube.” Upon arrival, we had some complementary drinks like coffee, water and soda (no alcohol) with chips and dips. A comedian/actor … Continue reading

The Year of the 6s

2014 was called the year of the 6s because the Jordan brand released a lot of the retro colors of that style throughout the year, even giving homage to an anime series “Slam Dunk.” The Jordan 6s weren’t one of my favorite styles; I like the Jordan 1s, 3s, 4s, 5s, and the 13s. But after really looking into the history of the 6th Jordan shoe, I can see why they are celebrated. It was the shoe that Michael Jordan … Continue reading

A great way to start the new year!

Yup, that’s right Mellisa Joan Hart is following me on twitter! She’s the “Sabrina The Teenage Witch” and “Clarissa Explains it all” fame. Well, I didn’t really watch those shows. And it really doesn’t make sense she is following another thousands of people, so it looks like a marketing campaign for her new show. Oh well, it was pretty cool to see that on my mail in the start of the new year :]

Youtube Space NY Cultural Diversity Celebration 2014

I never been to the new Youtube Space NY facilities since they moved to the offices at the Chelsea market, so it was the perfect time to visit when they had an event called the “Cultural Diversity Celebration.” My friend and I went to check it out, and to our surprise, they had some surprise speakers like Timothy DeLaGhetto and Chescaleigh and 2 others that I am not familiar with. But before the speaking engagement, there were free food like … Continue reading
