A few weeks ago, my friends over at Stan Lee's company asked me if I wanted to be interviewed on Stan's official blog. Of course, one doesn't pass up a chance like that, so here it is. I normally don't like stepping into the spotlight but when a living legend like Stan Lee asks, well, you just have to say yes.

He says: "I have been working with Alex Hammond a 3D designer who I share a studio with, and we have been experimenting with my illustration style and Alex's 3D expertise to create some unique work. The animation's elegant ribbon work delicately navigates, explodes and pops into… Continue

One of the coolest blogs to launch recently is My Parents Were Awesome. It was created by Eliot Glazer who wanted to show photos of parents when they were "super-awesome." As he states, "Before the fanny packs and Andrea Bocelli concerts, your parents (and grandparents) were once free-wheeling, fashion-forward, and super awesome."
Here's the thing. I like these photos posted on LiveCrunch. Many of them are interesting and cool. But the author of the article uses the "Amazing" moniker in the headline. Is anybody else growing weary and wary of this word?
I came across Cassandra's blog, Coco+Kelley, by chance one day and I immediately bookmarked it. It's not often you find a blog where you fall in love with someone's style; where you feel inspired to dress a little prettier or arrange your house in a new and unexpected way because of them. More than that, however, Cassandra has an uncanny knack of making you feel right at… Continue
Sure there isn't anything like picking out a shiny new vehicle and racing it around the neighborhood but what if you want to customize your ride? BMW has partnered with Microsoft to bring you the Product Navigator - a futuristic touchscreen that lets you pick a BMW, modify colors and content, and even save the finished project to a thumb drive to take home with you.
I wasn't that impressed with the video except when they dropped a block on it and it changed… Continue

Oh another blog for the blog roll on the front page! Joy! My sister Grace sent me an email this morning, telling me about her favorite blog of the moment, The Selby. It can be best described as a blog with one basic concept: post photos of artsy folks at home in their artsy spaces. It's like Sartorialist for the design crowd! Wonderful.
Every day Eugene and I go through tons of news articles and blogs looking for cool stuff to bring over to theMET. We work on our own original content on the side, thinking of new ways to make the site grow. Rarely do I find a site that I absolutely love from the moment I click in.
Popwhore 08 is by a 29 year old art director, Yurievi Ledesma, who mixes… Continue

As much as I love interacting with all of you on theMET, a significant portion of my time is spent finding new ways to grow it. Our content is rich, the group we have is solid, so now it's just a matter of good marketing. (And you may remember my mantra - "If the product is good it's a damn shame if people don't know about it.") I've reached out to a lot of new… Continue
On my way back and forth from Temecula to LA, I always think about stopping at Dos Lagos, a little known shopping area right off the 15 freeway in Corona. The Promenade Shops at Dos Lagos was built in 2006 but has pretty much remained like a ghost town. As part of a larger master… Continue
