angelebaby music picks


Bee & I finally got around to recording my show for TOTAL BABES RADIO. I spent a while on making the mixtape and worked on the transitions as much as I could - I know these songs so well & I know which comes before and what comes after so mixing up songs and trying to make the transitions as smooth as possible while knowing exactly how nice the original transitions are is maybe the trickiest thing out there. I sound v girly when I speak, but I think it works well with the songs I chose. 

Girls (ft Mona Lisa) ~ Cam'ron
Ed-Ucation ~ Dr Dre
Bitches & Ho's ~ Geto Boys
Forgot About Dre ~ Dr Dre
Patiently Waiting (ft Eminem) ~ 50 Cent
My Mind Playing Tricks On Me ~ Geto Boys

Go To The Floor ~ Missy Elliott
Let Me Blow Ya Mind (ft Gwen Stefani) ~ Eve

doing some research

Mariel gets to go to OFFF Barcelona for work (that lucky lucky girl tbh) and she asked me which designers I think she should go to and I felt really stupid because the only designer I recognized was Chipp Kidd and I should probably educate myself a whole lot more. I've taken two design courses at school so far and the only thing I've learned from them is how to use the programs - I really wish they'd expose us to designers and the history of design and things like that. I guess maybe if I majored in it they would? I don't know, but would actually rather learn on my own when it comes to stuff like this.

I browsed through their schedule and picked out one design firm I liked. I should really keep up on this, maybe try and do one of the posts once a week or something.

First up is Vicente Garcia Morillo

I liked it at first and then I realized that I didn't know what the name of the firm or person is unless I looked at the URL. Also what is the logo? It sort of very much looks like MOM. But it is nice that colors change when hover - a little tumblry though. I don't know.

And then I clicked on a lot of them and couldn't find one I liked. The nice ones were also a bit to tumblr-y, like this:

But I did find a cool magazine that they worked with called JPeople. I don't know what it is really but here's a lil screenshot and also a reminder to me to figure it out. Also very tumblr-y as well, but nice.

But to be honest I clicked through a lot of them but the websites were not making me want to go further. So far it's just this one but I have a few other websites I know I can research on so I'm going to do that later but right now am very engrossed in a super intelligent ( : P ) show.

lacma + some other words

Street Etiquette is in LA right now and they've  done basically all the big things me and Andy did (since there's two of them in SE is it SE are or not? I think not. Also *Andy and I but how weird is it to speak/write like 'Andy and I'). They've done LACMA and In N Out (really not that great) and they did Roscoe's (SO GOOD) but anyway, it's been nice watching it through instagram and being like yup yup and yup oh is that Kilo Kish's house okay yup to that too.


Okay so there were the regular things - the hand and the big sculpture thing that you can interact with. We paid for the Calder and Abstraction thing because James Turrell was sold out (also expensive I don't understand why people make art expensive I am so broke rn for a really stupid reason it's so stupid tbh) and it was a waste of money. One security woman told us not to breathe on it and I giggled so we walked around weird sculptures that we weren't allowed to interact with or get close to and that's all I want to do when it comes to sculptures - get really personal with it. 

Anyway, very sad - all the good things weren't on aka the Metropolis II and the light thing next to it - LACMA holds a v special place in my heart for a very good reason and Metropolis II was one of the best things there so very sad it wasn't working tbh. But there was a film room with strips from Lions Love (...and Lives) and it was very fun to look at.


I'm using some of those film photos for a net art project where I go through all of my online and journal writings and pick the funniest ones and the best ones and compile them. I'm doing a research project on myself how narcissistic is that. Not only do I have this blog and multiple journals where I write about random things and about me, I'm also making a final project about me. I'm lolling. 

Now, after the film stuff, we had a lil fun.


This next set is called 'Andy can't dance'. Also jeez it was so sunny and hot but I wore my red fur coat. Really wish it was black but it was the only one in my size at a sample sale for $150 instead of $1000 sooooo pretty self-explanatory there.


Finally there was this Japanese museum between LACMA and the tar pits. I'd never been in it but from the outside it was maybe my favorite building. Look how nice that is!! And then you go inside and it sort of looks gnome-y or something, I'm not sure, but I love the railings - mental note to myself to install those railings somewhere somehow.


And that's that for now! I've finished a design project and did this and now I'm off to do some finance before I run (literally) to my landlady's house to drop off a check and then to the gym and then back home for yoga and then ugh I'm not 21 and don't feel like going to a bad party where you have to pay $5 for shitty alcohol so I think B and I are going to have a very nice bottle of wine and record a radio show explaining all the 90s hip hop songs on the playlist I made for him woooooo woo! Then I'm most likely going research designers because right now I know some sites that I like but I need to know designers and educate myself seeing as how shit USC's intermedia selection is. And I have to toughen up and take a 2-5pm on FRIDAY type course next year oh my jesus. 2-5pm.
