Meetings with Jim

7th January 2012

I know its the weekend, and you’re probably over the thought of having meetings forever, but have you met my friend Jim?!?

Jim Mahfood is a rad artist living in Los Angeles

Jim is keen on:

  • dancing in public
  • mastering the art of playing “Happy Birthday” on the miniature harmonica
  • nicknaming his friends
  • going on food adventures
  • seamlessly blaring hip hop, jazz, and old punk records loud enough to start a party in his neighborhood
  • making killer mimosas even though he seldomly drinks them
  • the theory that its better to go back and find old music, than wasting time trying to discover new bands

I thought it would be interesting to write up a vague questionnaire for the people in my life to interpret as they’d like. So, while Jim and I were catching up, scribbling in our notebooks, and devouring milkshakes at Swingers, I decided to see if he’d like to be the first person to practice my ap-pal-ication idea with.

(side note: Jim typically refers to me as the Otter)

Along side making toys, comics, tagging bar interiors as a job, working on Tank Girl (!)and being an all around amazing friend, Jim also co-hosts The Beat Bees Sessions with Jane Dope! Its a podcast with the perfect mix of conversation and music (some of which is taken straight from my mixes. mmmmmhummmm)
