West Coast Hip Hop in Pictures

When Upper Playground’s newsletter hit my inbox, it took all of 10 seconds before I committed to checking out Friday’s opening at FIFTY24SF Gallery – Mike Miller’s West Coast Hip Hop: A History In Pictures. In support of his book, Miller is showing photos of his time spent hanging with Tupac, Eazy-E, Snoop Dogg and more. Maybe it’s theĀ Tupac video projection at Coachella that got me psyched, but it’s really interesting to see these guys in the places they call(ed) home.

Event details:
FIFTY24SF Gallery
218 Fillmore St., San Francisco, CA 94117
Opens Friday, April 27th 7-10PM
Book Signing April 28th 2-4PM

Get up, go out and start exploring

Can I just say I’m feeling inspired to get lost in forests and trails after checking out the This Is Oregon project, a collab between photographer Julian Bialowas and Shwood. It’s gorgeous photo/video and I’m totally down with their simple mission of encouraging people to do what they’ve been doing themselves. Exploring. I can’t wait for my trip to Portland next month.


Here’s proof there are good people in the world.

Every now and then you come across something so incredible it reaffirms your belief that the world isn’t all gloom and doom like the local news makes it out to be. This is one of those things that reminds me there are really good people in the world. People who share in the joy of making someone’s day are people I wanna be friends with. There’s nothing better than doing something for someone for absolutely nothing in return other than the sheer joy of making someone smile. It’s an incredible thing and watching this not only puts a smile on my face but almost cry tears of joy. Here’s to creating more fun passes in the world.
