Flying Drone Camera Fun in LA with @BigAlSams

Yes, you can have different kinds of fun in LA at 2am! This is Isaiah, a real estate guy who has secret passion for engineering. He created this flying drone from scratch and tested it out at the “Urban Lights” outside exhibit at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art on Wilshire Boulevard. Needless to say, I was impressed…what kinds of interesting, different geeky 2 in the morning stuff happens like  this?

My Moment of Greatness with Gabrielle Union

I interviewed the beautiful and talented actress Gabrielle Union for her movie “Think Like A Man Too.” We had a good laugh, and I think she was actually flirting with me during the whole thing (that’s my story and I’m sticking to it).

Later during lunch, the future Mrs. Dwayne Wade called out to me from across the lobby. I was stunned she remembered me from all the other reporters. Of course I got the selfie.

Fun times…

Big Al’s Pick – KLYNTEL “Love Is Here To Stay”


Considering everything that’s happened in keeping the Kings in Sacramento recently, the idea of NOT loving anything coming from Seattle, WA right about now seems understandable. But keep in mind; that’s just basketball, this is music…and good music worth checking out too.

Meet the band KLY-N-TEL hailing from the Emerald City and their single Love Is Here To Stay. Good song from my take. Even better, they are touring in 2013, and they are looking to make Sacramento a tour-stop (now that’s extending the olive branch).

Learn more about the band, music, and tour information on WWW.KLYNTEL.COM
