i just downloaded instagram for my iPhone, i like the effects and also the time i save posting on flickr with the image already touched up with effects. i snapped some test shots as i pick up my clean cloths from my building’s laundromat.
Woke up very late today, still full from last night, i went to a nice spanish restaurant in midtown manhattan.
In the lab, working on class assignment, until i hear some clowns talking about me, (I guess they thought i wasn’t in the lab sitting in the back) i wait to finish hearing what they’re saying.. i asked them, what they’re talking about? all of a sudden the story gets remixed, just saying, if you got something to say, I’m in that lab frequently, I’m approachable, if people feel a certain way, address the issue, talking behind someone’s back and gossiping like girls says a lot about their character.
On a brighter note, walking out of class, my friday looks good, i’m looking forward to going out to the movies in the city, and possibly a restaurant after that.
I chose this guy DJ Vlad as an inspiration for the job i would like to have in the future, because he works for himself, and not only that, but his site is a Top 10 channel on Youtube for news and media.
Vladimir Lyubovny, better known as DJ Vlad, is a disc-jockey and currently the Executive Vice President at Loud.com, part of the SRC/Universal family. He is also CEO of VladTV.com – a video website that many refer to as ‘The TMZ of Hip-Hop’.
A Computer Science graduate of UC Berkeley, Vlad began his career as a computer programmer. He eventually started his own dot-com staffing company, GigaStaff.
In 2000, Vlad closed down Gigastaff and turned his attention to music. He moved to New York and helped create one of the best known mixtapes of all time – Rap Phenomenon along with DJ Dirty HARRY. The Rap Phenomenon mixtapes won Awards from Rolling Stone, MTV and XXL magazine.
Vlad then turned his attention towards Film. He directed on the American Gangster TV Series, as well as the internationally distributed documentary film ‘Ghostride the Whip’. DJ Vlad also produced and hosted Russell Simmons’ & Stan Lathan’s ‘Hip-Hop on Demand’ – a nationally syndicated, on-demand Hip-Hop lifestyle channel on Comcast.
In 2008, DJ Vlad started VladTV.com, a hip hop video news site.
Shortly after launching the channel, DJ Vlad was allegedly assaulted by rapper Rick Ross’ Entourage after VladTV covered a story on the rapper’s former career as a corrections officer. Vlad filed a $4 million lawsuit that is currently in NY Federal Court. On April 15th, 2010, a New York Federal Jury awarded DJ Vlad $300,000 in his civil suit.
In April 2009, the massively popular Star & Buc Wild show joined the VladTV family to do a daily feature.
In May 2010, DJ Vlad appeared on the Boondocks cartoon.
As technology, as well as the internet evolves, i’m starting to think this is the path i want to take, which is creating my own website, and post all the exclusive content that i shoot, as well as other people’s work.
