First and foremost, welcome to 2012 everybody! To bring in the new year with a clean slate, we have just launched the new site for the studio filled to the brim with all kinds of new work. Please enjoy the fruits of our labor.


For the blog, we decided to try something a little different. More of an experiment in the web for us, we separated the two. Check back in the upcoming months for original content that you will only find on YouAreNotUs


With thanks from WANY / YANU

Picture-1Living is southern California has its perks, today unfortunately was not one of them. A 6.9 earthquake hit Baja, Mexico no more than 15 minutes ago. Living on the 9th floor of a building built in the early 1900’s, makes for an exciting ride to say the least, I dont think the studio mascot, Izzy the cat felt the same. Happy easter KDU.

Today as i was headed to do my daily gym routine, I had the fortune to run into one of downtowns local legends, Nathaniel Anthony Ayers. I have seen him around downtown a couple time but had never had the chance to listen to him fill the air with his amazing talent. I sat down on the steps of Pershing Square amongst 3-4 others, and enjoyed listening to this former Juilliard student. I must say it was the best 20 minutes i have spent all day. I hope that he choses to use the nickel (the nickname the homeless gave 5th st in the 50-60’s) as one of his frequent concert halls. I Love Los Angeles!
