Still trying to find a good playlist plugin for WordPress, but for now, you can use the following.
You can also download the set here.

I recently completed a new theme for the Daihen site. This was a custom html theme designed by my friend Scott Borchert. Mix of HTML, jQuery for the navigation menu, and Flash animated galleries and hero features.
The NYU School of Social Work was my first completely custom theme, written from scratch, in WordPress. I took our dear friend Kubrick (the theme!), stripped him down, and painted him a wicked shade of purple. This project taught me how WordPress works on the backend, as well as familarize me with jquery form plugins (submit an alumni story, contact form). We also found a great plugin to manage the more than 30 smaller events that were held leading up to the grand party of them all — the big 50th Anniversary Celebration.

Back around the end of January, I found myself pouring through the masses of “Best of 2010” lists, trying to find all the good cuts I missed that year. It’s a tricky thing – being presented with seemingly endless lists of what was, at one point in the previous year, considered “hot”. This is funny, because most of it’s still crap. But even still, there’s plenty of good things I stumbled across, and it made me realize how I should really be on top of this.
Thus, a new concept: Best of 2011, starting in February. Why not, right?
I started compiling a list of new songs from various music blogs and youtube clips, ripping the music as needed, and organizing it into sets. Just after I completed the first set, I discovered the excellent mixcloud.com, which came across as an excellent vehicle to deliver the package. The catch here was that I had to mix everything into a single set to avoid copyright violations. I decided to moderate it a bit; made the mistake of starting it late one Saturday night, trying to keep it chill. I pump up the tension a bit towards the end, and moving forward I want to keep that intensity for future sets.
So presented here finally, here’s Fresh from the Panya – Best of 2011 vol 1. Special thanks to the excellent illustration by the talented Jonathan Kolodner. Spread the good word!
First and foremost, welcome to Panyamedia!
This site was mainly created as a portfolio of projects and experiments. Here, you’ll find not only various web projects, but web applications, graphics tests, videos, photography, and more. This site was long overdue but I’m totally excited to finally have this live. Check out my about page for my background credits.
So what is Panyamedia?
Quite simply, Panyamedia is the brand name for my digital portfolio.
Panyamedia comes from the Japanese word for bakery (panya) and media. I came up with the name a couple years ago when trying to figure out a personal brand name that played off of my real name, Baker. The idea is that, much like a world-class baker would do, I’m always trying to put my best foot forward, baking up the best ideas possible. Maybe that’s pushing it, but you get the idea.
