Say What?

27 Dec

Having lived in Buenos Aires for the past 2 years, it’s easy to forget what exactly it’s like to live the “american” lifestyle.  Sure 2 years isn’t THAT long, I mean people are away longer for the military, school, travels, etc right?  I learned over time that the one way to really understand what it is to be American is to immerse yourself in another culture/live in another country. In my line of work,  I’m always telling my story.  Where I’m from, what I USED to do, what it’s like to live in the US, why Georgia is so much different from New York, Miami, & LA (the only 3 cities in the US most foreigners seem to know anything about).  Here are some of my observations, gripes, praises, etc after being back for 3 weeks now.

Ploox: The Road to the Inauguration

28 Oct

Last Friday was the Inauguration Party for my new project down here in Buenos Aires, “Ploox“.  It’s something that Miguel and I have been wanting to do for a long time, and with the help of our friends and colleagues, we were able to make happen. Our vision is to have our own Friday night party that will focus on fresh music and a good mix of people from all over the globe.  We are playing Indie, Electro, and Hip Hop in a bid to give another option to those wanting to have a great Friday night in the city without having to settle for the same ol reggaeton & Electro that you find everywhere else.  Here’s my story of how we made it finally happen.

Ploox Hip Hop Buenos Aires

21 Sep

Ploox is a project that I have been working on for a minute now, and finally we are ready to have our first Event!  The first party will be Ploox Hip Hop tomorrow night at The Spot.

Ploox is the event planning company that myself and Miguel Salas have been working on for some time now.  We are going to have a massive Ploox Party every friday night coming in October at a club that will remain nameless for the time being.  It will feature the best Hip Hop, Electro, & Indie music around, but that’s not all we’re up to.  There will also be 3 other genre specific parties throughout the week, starting with Ploox Hip Hop.  To stay in the know regarding everything Ploox, fan us on Facebook or Follow us on Twitter!

Hope to see you there!

Ploox Sneak Peak

14 Sep

I am backed up with video content for some ideas we’ve had for our upcoming campaign with Ploox.  One of the videos we are going to put together is a video of people all over the place saying “Ploox!”.  This is just a lil sneak peak of what’s in store.  It’s a lil rough, but you’ll get the point.  Watch for Pamela David of Animales Sueltos giving her Ploox shoutout.

Hostages, Guns, & Canadian Mate – A Twitter play by play

8 Sep

As I’ve mentioned in “The Craziest Day of My Life“, last month the Freelance Mansion (aka my apt) hosted Argentina’s finest in an effort to rescue a family taken hostage 2 floors above us.  Being the Twitter junkie that I am, I started tweeting everything, from the moment we realized there were hostages above us to the final camera guy leaving.  I decided to take my tweets from that day and put them in order so people could see what exactly was going through my head throughout the craziest situation I’ve been through.  *Disclaimer* This isn’t a picture book, its a story in 140 character at a time spurts.  This my friends, is storytelling for our generation.

The Craziest Day of My Life

12 Aug

…happened to have been TODAY.  Stay tuned for the whole story.  Basically my neighbors 2 floors above me were taken hostage today.  Somehow the police ended up using OUR apartment as their HQ throughout the whole operation.  Needless to say it was a crazy way to wake up after a long night out with the crew from HYPE. We managed to get some great footage of it all, so we’ll be uploading stuff soon!  If you can’t wait a day or two, just head over to my twitter and read how it all went down.  BA Herald story hurr

Ploox!

Back for the 2nd Time

The Pinnacle of the World Cup Mustache Competition. GLORIOUS

No I’m not Dead.  Yes I have been very busy.  Yes I plan on keeping this going starting………….NOW.

Here’s an update with me and my goings on.

After almost 2 years, I am no longer working for The Buenos Aires Pub Crawl and have ventured off to see where this entrepreneur’s spirit can take me.  I’m linking up with two good friends of mine to start our own party called “Ploox!“.  I will give sporadic updates on how this new venture works out, so watch out for them.  FYI: This is Not just a one off party, but a weekly party every Friday night in Palermo at a new club that will for right now remain nameless.

I’m going to TRY to start putting a more personal approach to the blog, so sorry for those who just like the music and don’t give a fuck about my lil adventure down here haha.  Rest assured the main focus will still be the content I always loved posting (music, futbol, funny stuff, and sneakers.)

So if you made it this far, thanks!  I’m back in business and plan on redesigning the blog to give it a new feel.   I also have ideas for video shorts as well so big thangs poppin here soon people.

Gracias a Todos desde Argentina

Messi the Role Model

18 May


Amidst the celebrations as Barcelona wrapped up another La Liga Title at the weekend, the phenomenon that is Lionel Messi had some interesting words to share with a jam packed Camp Nou. In typical argentine fashion, the little guy says ¨Aguante Argentina! La Concha de Su Madre!¨ How can you NOT love this guy?!

Props to Miguel for this little gem.

I´m Back!

Miguel getting weird with some Booze Cruise patrons

So after a short Hiatus, I´m back to the blogging world. For those who aren´t down here in BA, we recently hosted our BA Booze Cruise Saturday. Needless to say it took a lot of hard work from a lot of people, and it really payed off. The Party was AMAZING and ended up being the best boat party to date. Looks like we´ll be making this a monthly event so for those in Buenos Aires or thinking of coming here, DO NOT MISS THIS PARTY! More Pictures to come soon.
