The O.C

Did anyone pic up the new issue of Nylon Magazine?..There's is a random picture of Misha Barton rockin a bape hoody....aside from the fact she looks like she needs to be fed, I just found it amusing..thats all

speaking of Orange County...

I took a trip to Costa Mesa do a lil shopping as usual..For a place that I never even heard of up until this month, there were some really awesome places to shop

The LAB aka the anti mall- This place was choc full of hipsterness.Aside from housing Urban outfitters, it houses a bunch of small stores carrying stuff like Y3 and Umbro by Kim Jones.It is also to home of Blends.I mean its cool and all, but its just sneakers.Kinda boring.Oh and there this cool fountain made of all barrells there.

The South Coast PLaza-Probably the NICEST mall I have even been in.It kicks the beverly cenetrs ass like 10 times.But the store selection was amazing.Everything from Chanel to Gucci to Barneys Co-op, (which carried a small selection of ice cream and BBC stuff and these sweet loomstate vans).But It was like a dream come true

Commissary- Hard as hell to find.But it was cool.A good selection of shirts from bounty hunter to stussy.

Im tired.

A Bathing Ape will release its Spring/Summer v1.1 catalog this Friday, April 28th in Japanese bookstores. Looks like the present this time will be a tote bag... again.

Lazy Sunday

Today was another shitty weather day In LA...but, whatever..its sunday...a day that is reserved for shopping and I went over to Santa Monica to do the usual sunday ritual of undefeated, and Enterprise Fish company.

Nothing real new and exciting to report. A big shout out to Alex at RogueStatus.He let me know today that more of their "machine gun" hoodies are possibly in the works.And on a side note, he is one of the nicest dudes I met out here in LA so far.I definitly support those guys 100%.

ID My Nikes!

Well today was the worst day of my life..Well second most..But the one high point was going to Nike ID and making some shoes..Ha..Here they are above..Feel free to comment.. + or - ..Thanks Nate for putting up with me haha..

Supreme Supreme..

all I have to say..Is.....Wow..

Smart June 2006 Issue Released: Supreme Cotton Hand Towel!?

Ok, I stand corrected; THIS has to be the coolest (and possibly the hypest) item that will come free with a magazine this season in Japan. The new June issue of Smart includes, that's right, a Supreme box logo hand towel. This thing isn't tiny either; it's roughly 7 x 24 and comes in bright red with white lettering. Good thing too because I needed a hand towel.

Bought at 12:30 during my lunch break, sold out by the time I left work. Nice.

Randoms Featuring : Nick Diaaaamondd

1. Well Nick..tell us about Diamond and how it actually started out..not how people saw it from the internet..

Nick: I started Diamond as a skate hardware company back in '98..I made tee shirts for 2 years before I dropped any hardware tho... just to build up the brand name while I tried to perfect a new idea for skateboard hardware that I had..The hardware never really worked well so I decided to make the same basic hardware that everyone else made.... Since I was already sellin shirts it didnt really matter.. I guess people liked the tees so the regular hardware sold really good right off the bat..I also have been involved in skateboarding almost my whole life so even before I dropped the hardware and only had tees.... I assembled the best skate team u could ever ask that helped..I now make Bolts, bearings, griptape, riser pads, wax and basically any kind of skate accesories u can think of...I also have a wheel company called Fillmore..

2. Well now that the general public knows about Diamond..What would you rather have happen to you..scrape your knee with grip tape 50 times or take a bullet in the shoudler?

Nick: Are u serious?..Id rather get shot fo sho! hahahaaaa

3. So how much heat did you get for being the first person to hold in in a REAL picture and post it on the world wide web?

Nick: Oh man.... It was crazy!..I wasnt really trippin off of it at all.. I just posted the pic on myspace to show people the shoe I made..After work I went over to my friends store and he was like... you gotta see this!.. He showed me that someone posted the pic on Niketalk and thr wer 28 pages within 2 hours..I was like WTF!..i got lucky with that colorway.. I knew it would be good... I just had no Idea it would get that crazy..To be quite honest...not to sound like I am up on my own shit, but when I first got the sample I started laughing..

Chris: haha oh yeah?? and whys that..

Nick: I knew right away that people were gonna bug out on it! hahaha..It looked better than I expected..didnt know they would trip as hard as they did friend sold a sample pair I gave him for $2000.......

Chris: Wow...

Nick: then I saw a pair on ebay for like 1800..thats when the hype trail started really rollin..
4. So can we expect some type of shop in the future from you?
Nick: I am actually doin a store rite is on fairfax rite up the street from is a Fitted hat store that I am doing with Stevie Williams and the cats from Fitted in hawaii.... we make all our own colorways with New Era and reebok of all the best sports will be open in lesss than 2 months..its called Fitted LA..We will also carry fitteds from all our friends streetwear and skate brands..

5. LA Or NY..or both if you could teleport back and forth anytime you wanted..ha..

Nick: that's a hard one..... they are my 2 favorite places rite now..then SF and Barcelona.. wish NY had LA weather... then it would be the best place in the world..

6. whats the weridest situation/place you have been in..and how do you feel about marc ecko..

Nick: My weirdest place and situation is much too crazy to tell the masses...hahaa..


Nick: I don't know Marc Echo personally, but my friend designs shoes for him and makes a shitload of money..So all I can really say is.... good lookin out..haha

Nicks "two cents": If you aint bein hated on, you aint doin shit!
Chris: Thanks Nick..

Can or Can't..

Can or can't he skate?

Randoms Featuring: Le Messie..

1. Hulk or captain America..And who would win in a battle?

Le Messie: HULK!! He'll beat that painsy little under wearing fluke to shitts!!.... And then eat him! I despise superheroes with painsy uniforms that's why I love to kill them so much!

2. What were the best words of wisdom some one gave to you within the years??

Le Messie: You're a person that can do 2 types of things. Go 'do something', be out there, make a difference.... Or you can 'don't do something', live afulfilling normal life, white picket fence and everything.... But if you want to go do something be prepared for the drawbacks, the retaliation, the negativity.. Cause everyone who's succeeded in 'doing something' are continually going through them on one scale or the other and that's the 'small' price you pay for wanting to 'do something' the sooner you understand that fact the sooner you move and evolve.

3. Jenna Jameson..Or Lanni Barbie?..Ha..

Le Messie:Jenna can't hold her own anywhere close to Lanni.. Right baby lanni?

4. What's your feelings on the lupe album leakin on the internet? Dam pirates..

Le Messie: I like to look at it as a positive thing.. As Lupe said it's god's will, And I know things will be 10 times better than if it didn't get leaked at all,you wait and see... The leak will be the biggest blessing of his entire album.

5. Why and not .com?

Le Messie:Some drug consultants own!! DRUG CONSULTANTS!!! WTF! Besides ain' way cooler... = les minimal autistic children . telephaticvision

Take a break from Fashion and Hype...

And enjoy what has to be my new favorite music video/song. Further proof that Japan is the cutest country in the world.

The Wu is back!..again...and again...

I never thought that in 2006, we would see so many products and collabos related to a group that came out 13 years ago.However,I heart Wu tang as much as you all do, so Im not complaining.

Whether its kicks with the Wu symbol on it, the fabulous Mighty Healthy"Listen to Ghostface" shirt or the Alife x Raekwon tees, we have seen a huge resurgence of the Wu Brand this year.

The newest company to incorporate the Wu is Beautiful Society. They apparently have a shirt coming out incorporating Gza Lyrics into the design.

*Weekly Drop* this week...

Checkout the weekly drop this week to hear what Rob and Jeff will be discussing with LA's own Buffmonster.

Los Angeles has long been associated with glamour, glitz, image and unreality. It has always been undeniably glossy and shallow. Reality, of course, remains easily accessible. The Buff Monster hails from the inhospitable streets of Los Angeles. Small and elusive, it thrives in a city with a historic graffiti problem. The Monster manifest itself in different forms, each working towards the same goal of graffiti eradication.....
