lol. thats all for now. in socal. pictures from here soon. family woo.
Well aside from my sabbatical from b&n, ive been doing this:
Heres a little video i put together with a flip cam amp sent us.. yezzir. hopefully it turns into a weekly thing
more to come
The past month completely crept up on me. I realized that i've been so busy that i forgot to update this thing. Lately I have been running around SF twice a week with the hypebeast team. I had to take a leave of absence from Barnes & Noble to focus on the internship. School is done for a month, horray. Anyways, on to the pictures from the thanksgiving function taylor and tyler had.
ghetto beer pong
turned into a team meeting with almost all of us there
and the usual unfocused pictures of these two niggin out on some dice
So while i was shooting some shit for Clarks..
Then i had a shitload of work for art class. Most of our focus was on chalk pastels. And i fucking hate chalk pastels with a passion. They are dirty and messy. and i have to blend them in with my fingers. and my fingers hurt and were colored for a day or two. anyways finished my shit at around 5 for the final critique lol
Well.. its that time of the month again. Another update that has about two weeks of shit. As always ill split it up. Anyways, while all my friends were home we went to Taylors to play poker. and i lost five dollars and it pissed me off. fuck doug, then fuck cody for winning.
okay more from thanksgiving break in a minute
Well, Apparently when you see a street sign that says not to take a right turn, you should probably listen. Unfortunately I did not. Which is why a taxi almost smashed my passenger side. Whoops. Anyways, Took a trip to Haight and hit up Villains and Villains Vault.. pretty dope stuff. And then got lost on the Castro while trying to find a pizza spot. fml.
Onto the visual aids:
And since we all know i have some unhealthy attraction to unfocused pictures..
anyways. to be continued as always.
So yeah, went into the office on a friday.. got a few things done around there. Took about 200 pictures of Upper Playground x Grotesk. Ended up rolling with two shots for about 7 black graphic tees. That makes sense to me currently as i put off studying. Anyways, to the visual aids:
Then we headed over to Japan town. Which caught me off guard because it actually is Japan town. We were driving in and then I lost the ability to read the signs. That is when I realized that we were past the point of no return. A bunch of drifting BAPEs were walking around the streets making me nervous.
Luis chopping it up with John from the ID Agency
That was my friday.. before going home and watching people play video games. fml
So we were pretty much out of the office all day long. Since none of us are from SF, getting lost trying to get places is part of our job. We are hoping that eventually we will get the hang of the area. First we went to the wrong UPS, and then we had to drive all the way back to the right UPS which was near the office. whoops.
Then after that, we drove right back towards the wrong UPS on the way to the new Blvck Scvle flagship store. Met up with Mega, chopped it up about his shit.
By the time we got back to the office, Eddie and Alex had some pizza. We were starving and had to get some. It took like 30 minutes for the pizza to cook. but it was well worth the wait. One of the best pizzas I've ever eaten. Me being intolerant of lactose didn't even deter me from wanting pizza. Which is good because my stomach felt fucking fineeeeee.
anyways. chu boi is signin off from the left coast east bay representing the far far east bay
edit: hb threw up my pictures to the front page haha. wasnt expecting that when i took them but yeah its cool to me.
yo. leonard had his friends over. which was hilarious because of the previous years where this would happen. However Leo only had a few little gay dudes over, Steven made the mistake to fall asleep and he payed for it. I fell asleep before the rest of the debauchery. Stevie got a mustache and more tributes to penis drawn on his legs.
which brings me to the artist. the little sick fuck in the corner.
anyways. about to post some more pics from a day at the office haha
So i've been going to the new HB HQ SF, if that makes any sense bahaha. Anyways, most people who have read my blog have also read the words of the man shown in my pictures below. He is the daily editor for just about every blog update that you see on Hypebeast.com. I'm talking about the one and only L.A. Ruano, who does not receive as much credit as he deserves for slaving over the computer multiple times a day to bring you guys news in the streetwear world.
after hours of taking pictures of play cloths then editing them, we finally got hungry enough to go out and grab a bite to eat. Turns out, Fort Knox Southern Food is more than just a bite. The expensive ass fried chicken and sides came with so much food it was ridiculous.
Then on the way out. neither me nor Luis are from San Francisco, so leaving the office is an extremely difficult task. I have no sense of direction in my own city.. let alone SF. So I'm following him around. However, due to his excellent skills of navigation we found our way to the freeway. Thanks to an illegal left turn as well.
More posts about our adventures to come.
