A Cross The Universe - Justice (Documentary)

Justice are 2 pretty funny French dudes & this is an epic 1-hour documentary following them for 20 days of their North American tour in Spring of 2008. I really hope the rumors are true that Justice will be 1 of the Coachella 2012 headliners (Radiohead is also rumored to be 100% confirmed) but I won't believe it 'til I see it. The lineup is often released ON my birthday which is January 19th so hopefully the same thing happens again this year! It definitely makes my b-day that much happier! I'm ready for my EIGHTH Coachella in a row!!!

We are your friends. You'll never be alone again so come on...

Black Star @ Club Nokia in Downtown LA - 12/15/11

On Sunday night of Coachella 2005 (my 1st Coachella EVER!), I was in The Sahara Tent dancing my ass off to Prodigy when a couple of my UCLA buddies said they were ditching out to go see Black Star close out the entire festival on the main stage. I ignorantly asked, "Who's Black Star?" & was told it's Mos Def & Talib Kweli. I knew & liked Mos Def but I had only heard of Talib. Regardless, I was intrigued so I left Prodigy & went to watch what turned out to be 1 of THE best hip hop shows I've ever seen!

Mos Def (aka Yasiin Bey & Dante Terrell Smith) & Talib Kweli have a chemistry on stage unlike any other I've seen in live hip hop. They literally finish each other's sentences & they flow SO smoothly together that it sometimes sounds & feels like they're the same person. And it doesn't hurt that their beats are always BAD ASS!

Black Star brought the house down last night at Club Nokia in Downtown LA. I have now seen Mos & Talib together 2x & both sets have been unforgettable hip hop performances. I took my 21-year-old cousin Jack with me to the show last night & our 1st cousin concert experience couldn't have been more fabulous!

Shot with the same types of cameras used to shoot the National Geographic series Planet Earth, this breathtakingly epic snowboarding documentary will seriously blow your mind...guaranteed. And the soundtrack is pure perfection which is just the icing on the cake.
