Welcome Back.

Chris Brown has been on this blog several times. Through all the controversy he still remains as one of my favoirte artists out right now and I think that his long awaited performance at the BET awards this year has redeemed himself in the eyes of the public and his star can only rise from here. It may be to early to say it right now, but WELCOME BACK.

My World.

Internship @ TrailerPark + ArtMachine. Ep. 1 from Alex Ingram on Vimeo.

If you are a fan of the film industry I am sure you know that nearly everything we produce in entertainment comes straight out of Hollywood. i am currently working for a company that handles a great deal of L.A.'s movie trailers, photography, design etc. This video gives a look at what I see on my day to day of the internship. Check it out, leave feedback, and I hope to respond to any questions and comments. Also I have been asked by The Art Reference to post a weekly posting so be on the lookout for that as well. It is a global blog that originated in Brazil! Tux & Tie, started in San Diego to Hollywood to Brookyln to Worldwide!

Let me fill your heart with joy and laughter.

Yesterday marked the one year anniversary of Michael Jackson. It is hard to believe that just one year ago we lost the most influential musician of all time. Michael is my favorite singer of all time! I'll be there is my favorite song form the Jackson 5. This song really means so much to me and evokes all kinds of emotions everytime I hear it.
Michael you will live on through your music forever.

My biggest inspiration. Ari Gold.

Strange that my biggest inspiration is a fictional character. Ari Gold is cut throat, does whatever needs to be done, and is all about his business. All traits that are slowly growing on me as I start my professional career in the entertainment industry. The advise he gives to Turtle in this scene is brilliant. He talks about starting out in a mail room and working his way up. Working while in his undergrad and his graduate degree. All steps that I have been taking. Hopefully that means one day I can attain Ari Gold success.

Tuxandtie in Hollywood.

Anyone that knows me, knows I love L.A. It's one of my favorite cities that I've been to in the world, and definitely one of the coolest in the U.S. I recently got the call back for an internship at TrailerPark and Artmachine which is a huge company that makes movie trailers, web pages, game design, etc etc etc. for some of the biggest movies including Avatar, Sex and the City, and thousands upon thousands more. I will be working amongst some of the greatest in the business and got to meet many of them on my first day last week. My dream one day is to an art director and then a creative director like many of the people employed here, which is why I am going to Graduate School at Pratt, one of the top design schools in the nation. I will be working alongside Kip Terry, one of the photographers here helping with shoots, setting things up, and archiving and extensive list of photographs. My plan to make a name for myself on both the East Coast and the West coast is in play!
The offices are amazing. The location is so dope, right on Hollywood Blvd. next to Kimmel and the Kodak Theatre. Here is just a quick look at where I will be working. If you are a fan of the show Entourage, the layout is very hip and modern, Picture Ari Golds latest agency, with beautiful views of Hollywood from all windows! CLICK READ MORE TO VIEW PICS!

Its Working.

MGMT is probably my new favorite band. In fact they are inspiring me to keep up my pursuit of the guitar and start a band this Summer. I've used their music in various projects and they recently released this video for the song "Its Working" which is one of my favorite tracks on the album. Be sure to check out their album Congratulations, that features two of my current favorite tracks, Siberian Breaks and Brian Eno.
Purchase the album here via Amazon.

The Jacksons? YES. THE JACKSONS!

Over the weekend I got the opportunity to intern for Vanessa Florez who heads her own company entitled Aesthetic Everything that hosts major events in the Los Angeles area. This event took place at the Beverly Hills Country Not only did I get to work with incredibly high end cameras and talented folks, I also got the chance to mingle, and get my own name out there. Highlight of the day definetly had to be meeting Tito Jackson from the Jackson 5 and Taryl, his son from 3T. Amongst them other celebrites attended the event such as cast members from Glee, Lost, and enough Playboy Playmates to fill up the mansion. Amazing day overall and learned a lot and of course most importantly made a ton of connections!
