Fall 2008

Some photoshop projects of mine I just came across from last year. I wish I had a better grip of the program... if anyone's down to teach me a few lessons in photoshop and or illustrator it would most certainly make my day.

Estoy Enfermo

Feeling a bit under the weather like I got hit by a bus and on a rainy day... I'm pretty sure I know what I got sick from too, must have been that "Valley Water." HAHA not really but it was most definitely that day. Any way I just took some medicine to reduce my fever... hopefully I start feeling better soon.

Did I mention that much like this baby tiger I hate taking medicine!

México

"A national social explosion is knocking at the door." Said top Roman Catholic Bishop Gustavo Rodriguez, "We cannot separate the economic crisis from the violence and criminal crisis that we live day by day."


In regards to Mexico's political, economic and social woes...

Ariz para Montana Colors

I'm truly impressed by Aryz's technique and style. Who would have ever thought to spray paint into the cap of an aerosol can and use it to paint with a brush. The combination of traditional and contemporary techniques is simply genius.

Poed Up

It may not be jazzy or soulful but you don't always have to act like an arrogant music connoisseur/snob. This song goes hard regardless.

Epaulet

Denim done right! I don't usually post about fashion and or clothing too often, but Brooklyn's Epaulet definitely made me take a double look. Simply put these jeans look amazing. Coming in their "Smith" fit, a tapered-straight leg fit and cut from fabric imported directly from the Kurabo Mill in Osaka, Japan. Not to mention the fact that the raw selvedge denim is entirely stitched and sewn in Los Angeles it's guaranteed to turn heads.

These jeans are currently avaiIable at select dealers, I have yet to try on a pair but I think I just found my next pair of jawns.

Interview with Aya Takano

To be perfectly honest I'm not a particular fan of Aya Takano's work but after watching this interview I can definiteky say I have a new found appeciation for the passion and love she has for her artwork and craft.

She brings up a rather interesting conclusion... can art evoke a more sensual burst of physical and emotion extacy than say sex? Watch the interview and listen to her response.

Friday Mornin' Lurkin' part 2

Apperently this monologue is an excerpt from a 1976 film entitled "Network." Very commanding I think I just found another movie I need to put on my "to watch" list.

Friday Mornin' Lurkin' part 1

Too be honest I haven't followed football by any means since high school, but this film is beginning to look very interesting.



"The U is an ESPN 30 For 30 documentary about the 1980s University of Miami football team. Directed by Billy Corben, this is an in-depth look into one of the most extraordinary and controversial college football teams of all time. (They're the reason why the NCAA banned touchdown celebrations.)"

Who's down to roll to San Diego over winter break?

Let me start things off by saying how wonderfully surprised I was after watching this. My man Bobby (digital) hit me up with the link while we were chatting it up about bape and kid cudi, and I must say this video definitely made my night.

Hopefully it inspires you as much as it did me...

Toypunks

I first stumbled across this video a couple years back while browsing thru No/Fi's now extinct blog. Japanese toys, fashion and punk rock, what more is there to say? Pretty amazing if you ask me.

Miyuki... what?

Very interesting read over at IVY-STYLE about the Miyuki-zoku, whom were the first set of Japanese youth to emulate the fashion/dress of collegiate American Ivy League students.

Photobucket
"Starting in 1945, Japanese authorities generally viewed all Western youth fashion as a delinquent subculture. Despite looking relatively conservative in style compared to the other biker gangs and greasy-haired rebels, the Miyuki-zoku were still caught up in this delinquent narrative. In fact, they were actually the first middle-class youth consumers buying things under the direction of the mainstream media. It was Japanese society that was simply not ready for the idea that youth fashion could be part of the marketplace."
Shout out to the homies at Selectism for the heads up.
