IVE KNOWN RYAN FOR A VERY SHORT AMOUNT OF TIME but i always knew someting was wrong. its like the uneasy smell of rusted iron, the familiarity of dried blood.

idk

my whole life i have always been able to sense the “inner” personhood of a guy. With Ryan i knew something was below the surface. I could tell from the way his face was weathered. This man has seen tings.

We had a simple idea. I watch his favorite movie and he watches mine then we talk about it. That is what this episode is supposed to be about. Little did Jordan know.. his favorite movie of all time was one I had a small role in (that was removed in the theatrical release). so I had to dig up the old vcd and pull this clip for yall.

JOSH NOVAK AKA MR. DTSF AKA MR #PHOTOCRED AKA BANGSTREET MEDIA.

I honestly have no idea what we discussed in this episode all I know is we go on a tangent about how downtown is better than anywhere else in town. Josh is always juggling a couple things so go follow him. But do it the old school way, find out where he hangs out and follow him.

Conversations Episode 4: Gavin Johnson talks ups and downs, working together at Clear Frame and how to cook Tommy Tran

DSCF0718-Edit.jpg

Gavin is someone I feel so comfortable around its a little scary. I wouldn’t be surprised if he ended up being a serial killer or something that;s just how charming and disarming he is to me. I built this studio to track my recovery and this was the first conversation where I was able to open up a little bit more. Maybe it was because Gavin was open and honest enough with himself that it made me brave enough to share.

I think Gavin is one of my favorite musicians in our city. His music is filled with life and passion. Basically everyone should check out Gavins music here
