A vintage birds eye view aerial map of Salt Lake City.
Where Cindy Lee asian cafe sits today on Main Street once lived a fairly amazing restaurant called The Globe Cafe. I used to DJ there around the turn of the century before moving to the Red Door. I'm not sure who took the above photo (please tell me if you know...) but it came to light on an old hard drive and is bringing back some great memories. One might argue that bits of our current dining scene's stardust could be traced back to the Globe's big bang of ahead-of-it's-time food by chefs Adam Kreitzel, Joe DiMeo and others. The Globes owners, management and staff were always so fun to be around which made it feel like family. I hope they know what an impact they made.

The entire FB gallery can be seen here. Thanks again to the keen promoters for having me, and for throwing such an awesome event. Also to all the other DJ's who destroyed it. Definitely one for the books! Archived streaming video should be up at Quality Control's Daily Motion page soon.
In Utah, young Mormon missionaries buy their suits at this store.
My friend Elizabeth in her beautiful overgrown garden. Magical things happen when she's around!
From recent late night wanderings near 132 South State Street. Promised Valley Playhouse (...Orpheum Theatre, Casino Theatre, Wilkes Theatre, Playhouse, Roxy Theatre, Lake Theatre, Lyric Theater). Status: Demolished.
Did you know there's an website dedicated to all Utah theaters, open or closed from the beginning of time? http://utahtheaters.info
This James Adomain guy has been making me laugh this week. Especially his take on the history of Gay Villainy which he teases out even further in a fully costumed performance as the Sheriff of Nottingham on Comedy Central's The Meltdown which is performed live at a comic book store in LA.
I had the honor, along with my friend DJ Hot Noise to play at the 2014 Psicobloc Masters Series competition this past Friday at Park City's Utah Olympic Park. It was so cool to watch some of the best climbers in the world attack the specially designed solo climbing wall and then drop from up to 50 feet into the water. Here are a few moments we captured from inside and out of our neat bubble tower DJ booth, playing to a crowd of thousands. You can also stream the entire competition filmed by Louder Than 11 here.

Tried to capture the eerie light following a huge rainstorm that swept through yesterday evening. A flood park by my house filled up in about 30 minutes!
