One Time for Chopped Cheese and Beacon Youth Program Students



chopped cheese beacon program


Chopped cheese is the name of the game because the youth said so! What’s up good people welcome to the New York Said podcast, I’m your host Amon Focus.

This week I headed to Metropolitan High School out in the Bronx to talk to some of the kids in the Beacon Youth Program. I was asked to talk about Podcasting. I kept it simple, I showed them the audio equipment but I said the best way to learn about podcasting is to record one… So we did.

If you’re a long time listener to the show then you’re familiar with the card game I created called New York Said Shuffle, if not then it’s simple. New York Said Shuffle is a game where I have the guest shuffle a deck of question cards that I created and then they answered them.

In this episode I played a lightning round with the students. I asked each person in the group one question each and then they flipped the tables then interviewed me.

This is a light fun episode which I really enjoy. Shout to Leo of SOALife for making this episode possible.

I’m out of here, enjoy!

A Night in the Life of Tiger Hood



Tiger Hood
Photography by Amon Focus


Today’s guest on the show is Tiger Hood also known as Patrick Barr.

This episode happened because my train decided to take a detour and out of my utter frustration I decided to get out and just walk home. If you’ve ever ridden the Subway in New York on the weekend then you full understand my frustration.

On this summer hike to the Lower East Side I ran into my friend Tiger Hood. Now I’ve known Tiger for some years now. If you don’t know Tiger Hood, he is famous for his photography and the type of golf he likes to play. His game is street golf. Tiger upcycles used milk containers by wrapping them with tape and hitting them with a golf club toward a box in the distance. Sometimes he puts the box up the block and sometimes it’s across the street, it all just depends what he deems the safest placement for that street. Some People even collect his taped up milk containers.

The first time I saw his photography it stopped me in my tracks. He had taken a photo in Key West of a Rooster eating out of a KFC box and I thought it was funny.

For years I’d been wanting interview Tiger and stars stars finally aligned.
