R.I.P Big Dets

Last week my very good friend Big Dets was killed tragically - he was gunned down while sitting on the steps of his girlfriend's apartment. Today they laid his body to rest.

We met back in high school but our friendship really developed in 2001. I just moved back to Visalia from Redding, I ran into Dets and we talked about painting together. For about a year, me, Big Dets, our boys Smokey & Rob painted every Sunday. I will always remember and cherish the time I spent with Big Dets. He was such a driven and talented artist. Dets was willing to take on any medium to express his creative voice and I will always miss that. I'll see you again Big Dets, rest in peace.

The Big Score.

This one is short. I bought some soundtracks this past weekend. Thought I'd do an Instrumental type mix. There are some vocals but a whole lot of score type stuff. I used to buy soundtracks for the fast pace tracks for the bboys, but my boy Ned Learner got me to appreciate the other tracks that make up a soundtrack. You can listen to Ned at KXLU on Fridays from 9-11 p.m. Make sure to stream his shows, he plays some really good stuff.
