Fallen Cobra Sweatshirts


Skateboard Clothing has taken a different approach in the last few years..I remember working at Blades and the shipment we got from all the different companies wasn't as ill as these hoodies..haha..Not bad either for only 59.99..Make it a full zip...People would be all over it..

I know we haven't heard from KB in awhile. Well let me update you guys on some of the things he's been doing. For starters he's been going on a lot of tours with his Cream Team, and now he's taking it a step further. Rumor on the internet Kevin Booker has some major upcoming projects with two upcoming hip-hop artists. He plans to intact a lot of future side projects along with the two. Stay tuned for more info and no, KB is not going to be a rapper for those of you that thought that. Also KB is filming an exclusive "What Skateboarding and Culture means to me" for Hypebeast. Check back in the next week for that exclusive footage!

South Africa Stadium performance

Lets switch it up a little bit..More hip hop news...Quoted from Allhiphop

"Pharrell Williams and Snoop Dogg will headline the the first People's Celebration in South Africa in April. The rappers are on the bill with a variety of international artists, including South Africa's leading performers. Sean Paul, Mario, Rihanna and others will perform to celebrate the success of Premier Foods, South Africa's largest 100% black-owned company. Organizers are planning to make the Peoples Celebration Concert an annual event. "We feel it's time we gave our consumers something back in return," Premier Foods Chairman Mxolisi Zwane said. "We are committed to this idea and will be reaching out to consumers and communities with both our products and programs to ensure dignity and economic empowerment for all." The festival starts Apr. 27th at Johannesburg Stadium. On the 29th, the tour stops at ABSA Stadium in Durban and makes a final stop at Green Point Stadium in Cape Town on May 1. For more information visit www.peoplesconcert.co.za."

Talk Asia


Thanks to Wake Guy..Check out this teaser article on CNN's Talk Asia featuring Nigo..Quoted from the page:

"The Bathing Ape, or BAPE, phenomenon began in 1993 when Japanese DJ and style-icon Nigo opened his first shop in Harajuku, Tokyo. Working by intuition, Nigo's business took off on the strategy of exclusivity. And whether by default or not, BAPE became a cult brand and is today an icon of street credibility. Nigo talks to TalkAsia about the company's expansion in Japan, and beyond."

Be on the look out for this interview to drop this week..

Bape Button Up


Beats the patchwork button up..haha although it looked OK in pictures on of my good friends bought it and it didn't look so bad..But I think ill stick to plain colors..So far Concept..Has pictures of the Blue and Green Button up..Will there be Purple..Pink..White..And Red..We shall see..

Boon April 2006 with Bathing Ape Neckwarmers released


By far the coolest "present" given away with a magazine; the new Boon issue released today on Feb 23rd with A Bathing Ape "Neckwarmers." They are basically elastic-bound scarfs made of fleece. Even though winter is almost over, these are easily the most complimenting accessory to go with your camo hoodies. Two different ways to rock - as a neck warmer, or as a bandit.

Due to the overwhelming demand last time with the Bape Bandanas, I can not provide a service to buy these for you. Besides, the bookstore I bought it from opened at 11, I bought mine at 1, and sold out when I left for home at 5. !!!

To all footlocker, finishline, footaction employees

To begin this post I would like to make a little disclaimer:
The statements that are made by myself do not reflect those of the blog.

So on to my tirade. Upon a recently trip to my local shopping mall I suddenly realized why I hate the employees at the titled mentioned locations. My experience at my local footlocker went something like this:
me: what up man you getting the black views dropping this weekend?
employee: black views naw man they aren't coming out here. Try eastbay
...
employee: yo they releasing more of those dmp's man I'm hyped?
me: what yea right think of nike as a business, releasing as said shoe that was limited would all but kill their business model.
employee: I don't know man it's dope they are doing it.

I leave the store not a bad experience but my finishline experience top the day for me.
me: are you getting and of the future Jordan releases.
employee: noo we never get those (as a pair of XXI) sit on the wall
employee: all I see in the book are XXI red and black this weekend.
me: so you don't get them but you are getting the limited XXI on sat?
employee: they aren't limited for the limited stuff you need to go to niketown
me: they are limited they are full suede
employee 2: didn't they already come out?
employee: yea they did they aren't limited
me: what yea ok check your book again and then go to hypebeast and tell me they aren't limited
walked out the store

So the moral of the story I hate know it all salesmen who don't know anything. Does anybody know the screening process for these hires. haha ok you may now enjoy the rest of your evenings.

Stussy Spring and Nike Bible 2006 "Mooks" released


So when I first came to Japan, one of the first things I bought was a Bape Catalog for Summer/Fall 2005 with the purple cover (No, I do not have anymore), and fell in love with these so called "mooks." Today (and yesterday) saw the release of two new "mooks"; the Stussy Spring 2006 Collection (awesome cover design!!!) and the Nike Bible 2006. The Stussy book is pretty nice; some nice stuff to cop in the next few months. The Nike Bible on the other hand isn't as informative; it's more of a review of what came out, what's hot, what's nikeID all about, an article on the AirMax movement, and etc etc. Both came with stickers and round back pins. Nothing to go nuts over, trust me.

For pics of what's inside, please buy the book.

AKA and KR


From the people that brought you Also Known As..Have now created a KR book..Steven Vogel has already received the new KR book..Here are his thoughts on it..

"I just got my hands on this beauty the other. Allen and the AKA crew have done it again. Even though the release of the recent aka book is fresh on everyone's mind, he has released a book on KR. Beautiful paper, great format and wonderfully put together. The alife crew also were part of the process and the combined talent of the two is seen in this killer book. Respect to Allen and alife, I don't how and when you guys sleep. So far, you can get the book at the 95 Gallery here in Berlin, with more places coming up real soon."

I know last time I was in the aNYthing store..They still had the Also known as book..I cant wait to get my hands on KR..
