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.

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!

N*E*R*D* FORMULA 412 @ PITT – 03/28/09

March 30, 2009 bonics

Yes indeedy! N*E*R*D tore it up at Pitt this past weekend. And i got to throw on a set before Formula 412, Pharrell and the Gang take the stage!!! I’ll be honest it was a little difficult because the Pitt – Villanova game was on. I was just as interested in the game on the big screen rather than DJ’n at the time. Sadly to say though, Pitt lose in the final seconds of the second half! BOO!

Formula 412 definitely kicked it. N*E*R*D* definitely rocked the Fitzgerald Field House. They were able to take the somber mood due to Pitt’s lose and turn it into a crazy college ho down!
Thank You to the Pitt Program Council. Props to Tom and the Gang.

So we were one of those lucky cities that got to have Miss Britney Spears perform. Okay, okay, I know that she is not the quintessential musical icon. She has not changed the face of music. But you can’t deny the fact that she is a pop novelty. We all know her business. We all knows she’s nuts. And we all remember when she came out looking all sexy in a school girl uniform. Some how she is still relevant. It’s Britney Bitch.

Here is an article in POST-GAZETTE that I was interviewed for. I must say i was in good company

I also got to meet the The Pussycat Dolls and did an interview with Nicole Scherzinger. I should be posting that interview soon.
Here is a link to the old interview

They were cool of course. I really like Nicole. She has remembered me every time I’ve met her. I’d like to say we have a connection… lol. It’s really hard to feel that way sometimes when meeting celebrities. Sometimes i feel like celebrities just write you off like “You’re just like everyone else.” You got to appreciate when celebrities treat you like a normal person. It’s probably because I treat them the same. I can’t wait to post the interview.
