Scottro, Kevin Shea, and some handsome man

Scottro and I with Matt Molchen

I got a chance to hang with Kevin Shea all week long. Who’s Kevin Shea: One of the ORIGINAL KIMS OF COMEDY! He’s currently on HBO and Comedy Central. We don’t get much celebrity traffic in PGH so it’s nice to be able to show someone around town and give them a feel for PGH. He definitely had his fair share of jagermeister and smokey filled bar and clubs. I even got to check him out and the Improv with comedian Pittsburgher Matt Molchen. Dude tore it up and even showed me some love.

Kevin Shea said : “There’s no asians in PGH. Except do you know that one guy Bonics’ from the radio, he’s Asian” Someone in the crowd said “He’s Filipino!” And Kevin Said “Yes Filipino’s are the Mexicans of Asians” LOL

Kevin also said that next time he comes to do the Improv again he want’s me to open up!!! HOLY SH!T… I just might do it….

BONICS & NUGGET @ I.U.P. – 04/09/09

April 12, 2009 bonics

Nugget invited me to rock Indiana University of Pennsylvania with him at a place called Boomerangs. I’ve had a good number of friends go to IUP and all i’ve ever heard from the school that it is an insane party school. I’ve dj’d once before during homecoming for a fraternity party in a garage in the middle of the day and it was pretty rediculous. But a tuesday night? Yes, a tuesday night. The students at IUP party on a tuesday. 35 cent drafts plus Dj Nugget and I equal a hell of a good time. Yes, I got hammered. I got to chat with a bunch of students. And boy I feel old. But sh!t, I’m 28 years old and partying with a bunch of college kids on a Tuesday night! Mama raised a good boy. Later that night Nugget and I picked up hitchhikers. I’ve never picked up a hitchhiker ever so I was drunk enough to convince DJ Nugget. Watch the drunken mess below…

April 6, 2009 bonics

So yesh.. and mean Yesh… Another successful Bigelow Bash. If you don’t know the Pitt Program Council puts together a concert and fun activities every year on Bigelow Blvd. @ Pitt. I’ve been lucky enough to rock Bigelow Bash on several occasions. I’ve gotten to open up for the Wailer’s along with some other random bands. This year my man DJ B-tips rock the spot. Secondhand Serenade and The Acadamey were the headliners. I took a bunch of pics of Tall Cathy, McFly, and I having fun and PICS of Secondhand Serenade…. HOLLER….

I’m On A Boat – ASA Gateway Clipper Formal – 04/03/09

April 5, 2009 bonics

Yes, The Annual ASA boat Cruise. Once the Asian Student Association and now the Asian Student Alliance. This is a tradition as far as I’m concerned in the Pitt world. Believe it or not I was at the very first Pitt ASA boat cruise even before I lived in Pitt. In fact i was still in high school. I had a couple friends who went to Pitt at the time. Just to see it come so far made me feel proud. In fact Fri probably was the 6 or so time djing that particular event. And almost the irony of me not djing at the time in ’98 and being able to rock the boat 10 years later to me is amazing. There are obviously a few differences from then and now. Number 1, I’m older. Number 2, the numbers weren’t as overwhelming as I remembered them in the past. But I’m glad to have been apart of the event. Here’s what hasn’t changed though. And I dont mean to burst any bubbles, people’s ignorance to something like this. When telling poeple I’m doing an Asian Students Party I get alot of crazy reactions! Like – “Really people really go to that?” – Or if I ask anyone to go with me they’ll be like = “Am I gonna be the only Non-Asian on the boat?” – What’s wrong with you people? mmm…. i could really go on a tear but… I’ll stop here. Just remember sometimes the best thing for someone is to be uncomfortable. Why? Cause you learn and adapt. Alright enough of the lessons.

Hand’s down ASA parties were the shit during my name at Pitt. They had the best music (House and Hip-Hop). Best diverse crowd’s. And people loved to dance.
And still today it keep’s going. Still diverse. People still dancing (drunk or not). And the people are still beautiful. I’m happy that these students are proud of their heritage. I’m proud that “Non-Asians” still come and have the best time. Thank you ASA for having me.
And yes I played i’m on a boat.

BONICS – D DOUBLE – Digital Dave @ ZEN – 03/31/09

March 31, 2009 bonics

This past monday I got a chance to rock Zen with PGH mainstay Digital Dave and from Las Vegas / Chicago DJ D Double. D Double is an O.G. Or should I say O.D.J. <----Funny?> He’s been in the game for over 20 years. He’s a Violator All Star DJ and can be heard on Sirius Radio 40 Hip Hop Nation. D Double is a head ya’ll. He knows his music and crushed it at Zen. I’m looking forward to rock with DD again. Respect to film maker Robert and Vince who slid through the burgh with DD. HAIL THE DJ!
Here’s His MySpace:

Hail to Pirmanti’s!
