Office Style

Brian Ferry snapped a couple shots of my backroom so I thought it would be nice to share a couple. I just got the show poster in along with another print from Will Adler (bottom pic). This is all a bit different from my actual place but i think there should be some differences in style in terms of office and home.

Okies Unite

C Wray needed some pics for upcoming project Shades of Jackson and enlisted the talented Rhoads (also Okies) duo to snap some shots. They went all over southern california to do just that and made a pit stop at our apartment. Here are just a couple pics at our place. Make sure and get this upcoming album. It's a good one.

I know where I'll be this evening. Jesse has started a great night at a great spot. See ya there.

Pure Vegan

Joseph's book is here and it's a dandy. To coincide with the release, he asked some friends to do a little video to help with the release of his brilliant cookbook. Nice work everyone.

Just Do It

Man, what happened to these shirts? I wish they could make a comeback. Seriously, these are awesome.
For now, you'll have to hunt on EBAY to get one. I think collegiate wear sucks with any team sport. It's all made in China crap.

Calling All Laker Fans

Oh boy, where do I even begin with this? I will try and write this from an outsider perspective but that's not really going to work. Here goes nothing....
Ya see, for the Thunder fans, when they get a t-shirt on their seat, they simply put it on. It's a simple idea but even us dumb midwestern folk can grasp that. It's also a way to show support for your team and be the "6th man."I feel that this would be somewhat intimidating for a team to see an entire stadium filled with EVERYONE wearing the same T. It's more than a T-shirt! 
Now lets get to the fun part. Walking into the Staples Center last night, they were handing out gold shirts to rally Kobe and Co. However, those trendy laker fans can't be fooled so easily. Do you really think they are going to wear the same garment as a person sitting directly in front/behind/to the left/to the right of him/her? I don't think so. 

What it looks like when OKC Thunder fans put on the shirt.  

"Bro, I'm going to put my shirt in my right back pocket. How sick is this?" Sadly, not the only one doing this little trick.

"I'm not going to wear my shirt, I'm going to wear my rat tail and my trendy leather jacket with a popped collar." Barf.

This guy is like 60 and still doesn't get it. I wore JNCO's when I was like 15 and am still haunted by it. This guy paid a lot of money for this leather jacket and jersey/jean get up. He has no chance.

 It's so bad that I'm not even upset with this guy for wearing a cape. At least he is wearing the T-shirt given to him. Kudos to you buddy. Rally your fans. 

 In conclusion, there are a few bad apples with every team/fanclub etc. But, after going to the game last night, it was more like 50/50. I wish the fans in the rafters could be sitting on the floor seats where Frankie from the Hills, dude form Hurt Locker, and the other cheesy hollywood types were. Even most friends of mine from LA hate the Lakers and their fans. They go to the game to be seen (not all) and root em on when they are winning, and winning only. I'll take my Thunder and our fans over the Lakers and theirs any day.

Supporting an Institution

For those that live in LA, the New Beverly Cinema is a special place. I feel like I have seen the importance of it from a bird's eye view because my store is on the same block, and witnessing the amount of people that show up on a daily basis is something special.
Show your support by going HERE and helping out. Every dollar counts!

Prison Art

I am not that knowledgeable on "prison art," or any other art for that matter but this incredible. Made in the 40's at the North Dakota State Penitentiary by an unknown inmate/artist. The detail on this thing is incredible. Bid HERE.

We needed a main light in our bedroom so we went to the one and only, Adam Silverman to make us a one of a kind light. Sure enough, he delivered.
