Just got back from New York the other day. I was there for a preview to the World Basketball Festival that is happening in August. Before i post any pictures, just wanted to throw up Gotty's coverage from the Smoking Section
So May is ending soon, only proper to post pictures from Cinco De Mayo. Everyone got shitty drunk and had a bunch of shit to do the next day, but not before Adam fell asleep and we drew a plethora of dicks on him in a variety of styles. Sucks for them. Happy Cinco De Mayo!
While living in Fairfield, CA I have definitely seen my fair share of girl fights. And I've definitely seen my fair share of neon weaves pulled out and left on the ground. However, nothing is on the same level as this stuff. I love it. I would like to thank golf clubs, mall chairs, and last but not least DJ Cooley, It's goin down.
Damnit. I've invested 6 years of time into watching this show.. and I've been a loyal viewer since. Im pretty mad they had to pull it all together so quickly but whatever. And now i have three days till the final two and a half hour finale. I have no idea how it will end. But if they don't kill Flocke, Desmond was used to be conscious of the two timeline things. and if they fail, he will be used to bring them back to the island as a failsafe. Then the cycle goes in and the story starts with them going to the island again. Boom.
So the weather went back into remission and is raining again, I still don't want to be anywhere near here or school. I've been in summer mode for two weeks already and these past few finals are killing me. But we get to go back to Newport in a few months at the end of summer. Until then, the dead heat of Fairfield's summer.. once it gets hot of course.
Leonard thinks he's buff now and Zach is a sucker as usual
Vans flew out me and Luis for the Vans OTW launch. Which was pretty dope, good food and free heem. Lots of streetwear heads were out there to celebrate. Keith from HUF, MEGA from blvckscvle, Eric Elms, Tony Alva, and some other bloggers like Pete from High Snob, Marcus Troy, and Ronnie Fieg. Then I walk through a room and see Danny Trejo sitting there. Lots of people knew he was a movie star and shit, but I've been watching movies starring Trejo for as long as i can remember. He's been in Desperado, From Dusk till Dawn, Anaconda, Con Air, he's done it all. Pretty much any obscure mexican badass was played by Trejo. He kicks it with Mr. Cartoon and I definitely had to get a picture with him. anyways, more pictures from LA soon.
Me and Luis were in LA for a Vans OTW launch party. Before that we hit up supreme in the day. Ran into a kid that has been posting on the forums for some time. He's made a shitload of youtube videos and probably got me hooked on MF DOOM's Hoecakes. Anyways now he raps, and I thought the picture with him would be necessary. Enjoy
So everyone knows i do the whole raw denim thing. Which is to buy a pair of pants that have not been washed or distressed in any way. and in turn they will fade to my body. anyways this is my second pair after my self edge x imperials seen below.
anyways im about a month in to these 21 oz iron hearts. to put it in perspective, most denim sold at stores is made out of about 8oz denim. anyyyyyyways. my fucking super thick leather patch on the back was hanging off my ass yesterday night. so tomorrow im bringing it in to kiya at selfedge and they are going to fix it for me.
However, I'm not talking about the trip that I'm currently on. Last month or so me and L. Ruano took a 24 hour trip to LA. There was a book opening at Stussy LA for the ALL GONE book that Luis helped write. Then met with Dr. Romanelli, a crazy ass designer that does collabos with HUF all the time. Right now he's doing a comic with NASCAR about drivers. crazy stuff. Then we met with Edwin Ushiro, a Japanese American artist from the LA area. He took us out to this cosplay restaurant for lunch. Anyways. The trip started when we had to run to HUF to pick up some promo stuff, my car got a 83 dollar parking ticket and thrown up on a tow truck. Talked them to letting it down. Giant cock block on the start of our road trip. Then sat through 3 hours of traffic to get to the 580. Almost got in an accident on the 5 once we were in LA (not my fault surprisingly). Then at the end of the day, i still ended up getting a parking ticket. But they mailed that a few weeks later. Left at around 9pm and drove home all night till about 4am. Anyways. pictures below
Luis had some bad milk at this hood ass winchells, fucked his day up for the next 24 hours
Waiting outside of HUF LA for long as fuck in the morning
Cafe time with Darren Romanelli aka Dr. Romanelli aka Dr. X
I would normally pass on posting such corny ass pictures. but i got a stupid ass parking ticket mailed to me because i refused to park at the broken meter.
The book release at Stussy LA
Then we chopped it up with Joe Hahn for a minute. Owns a store out there called SURU, and we should be doing a Hypebeast TV feature on him and the store.
On the way out before driving for another 7 hours into the early day.
I think im finally done updating with super old content. but yeah.
