If I Was In New York

Krink Air Force 1Krink Air Force 1

This weekend I would head down to the Alife Rivington Club and pick up a pair of Krink Air Force 1's. These things are fuckin' sweet! I love the drips and the 3M reflective material. Unfortunately, they are not available at the Alife stores in LA... yet. I am a huge fan of Krink's markers and mops. I have been destroying the dumpsters, newspaper dispensers and electric boxes out here with them. Mmmmm... silvery goodness. If only I could do it wearing the matching sneakers! That would be RADICAL!!! Anyway, if you are in NYC this weekend, and are cool, pick up a pair. I'm sure there will be a line. I'm not sure if they will be available anywhere else, but if they are, I'm totally there.

This morning at work, my boss yelled, "SHREDDER!!!"

Also, check out Allen Spector's new pictures of Chinatown. They are pretty sweet like green tea roasted duck. Yum!

Update: I just rode my bike past the Nike Theater on Hollywood and Vine and the Krink AF1's will also be premiering there on Saturday. I will try to brave the lines if I can (if Anne doesn't tie me to the radiator to keep me away).

I Am Dead

Tagged Newspaper Box

But only on the inside. On the outside, I am still going through the motions. Existing, but hardly living. To get any thrill in life, I have been tagging the hell out of Los Angeles. For example, the image above, of a tag I did across the street from the famous Vista Theater. I have decided to take pictures of them all, before they are gone, like the one I did down the street from The Hundreds, Alife, Supreme, Turntable Lab, and Huf on Fairfax Ave. Oh yeah, there is a new Alife store opening on Cahuenga near the corner of Sunset. It is opening right next to Space15Twenty. I was driving past before the Alife crew had gotten all of the butcher paper over the windows and noticed they had a huge Marcel Duchamp urinal in the middle of the space. Fuckin' awesome! I wish I had gotten a picture. Anyway, they haven't sent out an e-mail about the opening yet, so I don't have any info, but I am going to try to get out there for that shit and take some pictures for y'all. Now I gotta' go to dinner at Anne's boss' house.

President Elect Barack Obama!

President Elect Barack ObamaI am still drunk with happiness today after celebrating Barack Obama's victory as the next President of the United States last night. It was an amazing night, but as Anne said, slightly anti-climactic because it was over so quickly. As soon as California's polls closed, the winner was announced. There was partying in the streets, cars honking their horns. I was in the restroom, where I usually am when important events in world history are going down. The Berlin Wall coming down, I was in the can. The new millennium, I was in the john. My Bar Mitzvah, oy, what a stool.

Sorry, I got a little side tracked there.

Anyway, I was trying to think of a way to show my support for our new President Elect, so I designed the t-shirt above. Until possible (but unlikely) approval by Threadless.com and the general public, you can buy the cheap imitation version of my President Elect Obama t-shirt here.

Update: Well, my design was rejected by both Threadless.com and Cafe Press. Apparently, you can't use an picture of Barack Obama, even if you alter it drastically. What if I drew a picture of him that looked exactly like the image above instead of using Photoshop to alter a photograph, would that work? Or does my version just look too much like Shepard Fairey's image of Obama [pictured below] and that's what the problem is? Or is it just that it is Barack Obama? No celebrity images! But I just want to support our new President Elect.
