My publicist set up a feature for me this week and she later admitted being scared that I would mail her an anthrax letter. I should really send her flowers instead. Why did she think I wouldn’t like this? I just spent an afternoon with a Playboy playmate. To be specific, Kelly Carrington, Miss October. Read More
BlackBook ran a cool little feature on me in the context of the Running Man record. Check it out here.
It’s funny to me that they used that picture. That pic was taken at a gifting suite at Winter Music Conference a year and a half ago. This rep from a headphone company was like “hey we’re gonna give you some headphones, can we get a picture of you with them?” and that was supposed to be the end of that. Why would someone think it’s a press photo? Am I supposed to be like “hey I’m a DJ so I walk around with headphones around my neck, even when I walk the dog!”
Bussed it over to the Izod Center in Jersey last night to check out Nine Inch Nails. I’m not a stadium rock dude by any means but sometimes you gotta go for it. Arriving shortly before the end of Does It Offend You, Yeah?‘s opening set which was audibly forgettable to say the least, I took the opportunity to grab some tasty chicken fingers (Meadowlands Mustard!), fries, and a $8 Budweiser (totally expensable right guys?).

We’re kicking off a new series of interviews with folks in the extended Fool’s Gold family: THE FOOL’S GOLD Q&A. It’s like Charlie Rose with swagger on a hundred, thousand, trillion, Nightline for electro nerds, 60 Minutes minus everything but Ed Bradley’s awesome earring. Our inaugural edition features the one and only Laurent Heinrich, aka Ferris Bueller, aka Lifelike, French producer/remixer extraordinaire. You can hear his signature touch on Treasure Fingers’ “Cross The Dancefloor” single (download the remix here and buy the whole single here), and read his full Q&A after the jump. More email interrogations coming soon! Read More
Tomorrow (8.26) at Las Vegas’ Jet @ the Mirage, Fool’s Gold’s own Treasure Fingers and Nick Catchdubs will be spinning streetwear jamz at the Triple 5 Soul x Vapors x BPM party for the MAGIC tradeshow, alongside good buds Steve Aoki and Peanut Butter Wolf. It’s free with RSVP, so send em in!
Right around when A-Trak’s Running Man mix for Nike+ first dropped, he went to the Nike ID studios with our art director Dust La Rock and our pal Kesh to test out some colorways. Now you can put the fruits of their afternoon on your feet by winning these Nike ID dunks! We have 5 pairs to give away, all you have to do is email us your name, shoe size, shipping address (no PO boxes, you gotta be able to sign for these) and phone number, and we’ll choose winners at random next week.
UPDATE: Almost 1,000 entries in a weekend, not too shabby! Congratulations to Erin McCulley of St Petersburg, Keena Carson of Newport News, Ronald Moore Jr of the Bronx, Dean Bryce of London, and Yan Philippe of Montreal!
Michael C. Place is a English designer, former member of the Designers Republic (I’ll get to them in another post) and the artist featured in this French advertisement (with a song you may have heard). Now if i could only get Pritt to send me some of those correction rollers..
