First and foremost we want to send our prayers and thoughts out to everyone in Japan who is being affected by the earthquake and tsunami there.
Being half-Japanese and born in Tokyo, LB of course has a strong connection to the country as well as friends and family there who have reported in as safe and sound.
It’s a tumultuous time right now and everyone here at Team LB is keeping Japan in our thoughts.
Speaking of which, this Thursday LB will be attending a very special fundraiser at SOM in San Francisco as part of Distortion2Static featuring Trackademicks, Teeko and others who are donating their time and talent to raise money for Japan. All proceeds from this event will go towards helping the people of Japan and SOM itself is donating $2.00 per person who comes through the door — so make sure you come out this Thursday to SOM — 2925 16th Street in San Francisco.
All of that being said, today is Tuesday and of course that means we have a brand slappin’ new webisode of LBTV.
