UGLYDOLL DAVID HORVATH

By ERIC NAKAMURA

We’ve covered Uglydoll over the years and watched it grow – even working on events such as Uglycon – a convention based on Uglydoll. In this podcast with David, we cover topics such as Uglydoll’s growth, character creation, the film, what’s next, and more. It’s a podcast that’s over 45 minutes in length and if you’re into creating anything, this is a must listen. >>

MEI MELANCON

By ERIC NAKAMURA

You saw her for too short of a moment as Psylocke. She was the jilted “Hello Moto” bride. Recently she was Jamie Chen on The L Word. In over 100 commercials and assorted roles alongside of her modeling career, I catch up with Mei Melancon at Giant Robot 2 on a recent morning for a podcast.  We cover topics that begin with her appearances in high profile commercials, X-Men, L-Word, relationships, and her little known upbringing in a commune in Japan. >>

GIANT ROBOT: GAME OVER EXHIBITION PHOTOS

By ERIC NAKAMURA

Thanks for the visit to Game Over at Giant Robot. The exhibition features 140 pieces of art from nearly 80 artists. The opening reception on saturday was one of the most crowded ever. People filed in at 6 and we had people still hanging around well past 10. The work fills the walls and if you’re a game or art fan, this is a perfect place to get lost for a while. >>

INTERVIEW: RAD THRASH BAND FROM SACTO

By MARTIN WONG

Like the musical equivalent of a Coelacanth, Sacramento’s RAD is a living, breathing, biting example of an era gone by. They carry on the fury, brevity, and humor of the mid-‘80s when punk and thrash were crossing over, but with totally modern sensibilities.  A couple of months ago, I finally got to see them play L.A. (along with my friend and ace photographer Ben Clark, whose pictures from a Pyrate Punx house show are included in this blog) and followed up with some questions that follow. >>

E3 DAY ONE

By ERIC NAKAMURA

The E3 event in LA arrives again, and although there’s no giant announcement that seemed to move a mountain of any sort, it’s still a happening that matters. We do all play games of some sort, right? If not, we’re aware of them and they shape a tiny portion of our lives. >>

MOTHERFUCKERLAND: INSTALLMENTS 1-20
