Poker Night (FROM 6/18/07)
Thu, 21 Jun 2007 09:28:15 GMT
Usually I'd be drinking and playing cards, but I've realized I have to play sober to play well. I went head to head with Tim and he killed me after an hour and a half. Thanks Tim.

Vans Syndicate Part IV
Sun, 17 Jun 2007 08:11:12 GMT
Once again thanks to Evan for holding them, and Harley for hooking it up. You guys are family to me. The first ones were designed by Wes Humpston of Dogtown fame. He was the designer and shaper of all the graphics and boards. Not the best looking Syndicates, but I had to cop. The second ones are Half Cabs made out of bulletproof kevlar, with a nice touch of crocodile. They're not as shiny as they look in the pics. Loves me some Vans Syndicates.(image) (image) (image)
Oakland Vs. St Louis
Sun, 17 Jun 2007 08:10:33 GMT
For my birthday back in March, Isaac was supposed to take me to a game, but it didn't happen until Friday night. It was cool because it was an interleauge game against last years champions The St. Louis Cardinals. Great game, great win. Thanks Isaac.(image) (image) (image) (image)
Evan Drunk & Skateboarding
Wed, 13 Jun 2007 08:19:21 GMT
A couple too many vodka sodas into the night, and we were out on Tamalpais skating my 1989 Powell Peralta Caballero board. Evan broke both the railguard and the tailguard haha. He ended up landing a 360 flip, but not on camera. At least he got some sick lines. A filmographer I am not. I was also drunk and filming with my digi cam, so don't give me any shit.
Huf Huf Huf Huf Huf Huf (FROM 6/10/07)
Wed, 13 Jun 2007 01:48:10 GMT
So I leave work at 1 to make it to Huf for these lumberjack fitteds. The store is packed and they're almost sold out of them. I actually ended up getting one of the last green ones. AND who else is in the store while I'm there?? HIROSHI FUJIWARA!! The king of kings as far as streetwear goes. He's been doing this since day 1. He was wearing everything coveted and limited. Fenom/Kangol hat, Visvim sweater, Fenom/Levi's jeans, his own Nike Air Force 1 design, and A Leica camera. I shook his hand and told him how much of a fan I was, and also asked when Headporter was coming to America. In true Japanese fashion, he smiled, lowered, shook his head, and coyly replied, "oh, haha, i don't know, i don't know." Classic. Anyway, I walk in for a hat, and walk out with a new wardrobe. I hate myself.
P.S. I finally snagged a pic of my favorite lunch right now. On The Bridge (whom I've gushed about before), Curry Katsu Don. Breaded pork cutlet, rice, Japanese curry, one egg sunny side up, parmesan cheese, and diced tomatoes!! YUM!!! 99% of my friends probobly think I'm gross. haha.(image)

Wed, 13 Jun 2007 01:45:48 GMT
Jasha was my trainer, and then one day he called and told me he split both his legs. As in his his kness are fucked! As you can see in these pictures:So on the 6th there was a party at 19th & Broadway in Fairfax (BARF) to benefit his cause. Drunken madness ensued. Twas all in good fun.[...]
A's vs. Red Sox (FROM 6/5/07)
Wed, 13 Jun 2007 01:44:33 GMT
What a crazy game! As soon as we get to the game, we decide to get some beers and chicken strips at the Heineken booth. Youkilis is at the plate and is sporting an atrocious goatee for the game and I end up chatting up the two guys in front of us about the facial hair dilemma in the MLB today. So in turn the guys give us their two extra tickets right behind home plate!(image) mmmm heineken chicken

Cheap Monday (FROM 5/15/07)
Wed, 13 Jun 2007 01:43:38 GMT
Most amazing jeans E V E R ! Well, except for the fact that they make me feel like a fatty because I have to order a size 33, when I wear a 30 normally. I have to get the other 6 washes!(image)
ANOTHER pair of Vans Syndicates (FROM 5/6/07)
Wed, 13 Jun 2007 01:41:52 GMT
Thanks again to Triumph. I haven't owned Chukka's since I was a kid. Wearing them reminds me of the Clipse lyric, "Youngin' Don't Make My Sales Rise, I'll Shoot You Out Ya Chukkas! Pusha hears the whispers of ALL you MOTHAFUCKAS" Haha. So Fresh.(image) quilted suede goodness!
Just Another Night

Sometimes it's nice to have a routine. Warm night, dinner from Arigatou, and the new Bjork CD, while watching Escape From New York. Love it.(image)
Sun, 06 May 2007 01:18:38 GMT

AAAAAAHHH! Washington. Washington.
Thu, 03 May 2007 07:31:19 GMT
George Washington is officially my favorite president ever now. Angela showed me this. Almost a million hits on YouTube, and even Pitchfork reviewed it and gave it 4.5 stars. Dang.

I AM IN LOVE WITH VANS SYNDICATE
!! Big ups to Sweets (the manager of HUF Skateshop) for posting them exactly when I signed on to my computer. No time was wasted. Can't wait to wear them!(image) SK8 Hi x NECKFACE

Individually bagged, and then bagged in a black cloth bag and then boxed. Craziness!

Yea, I've been lazy the last week. My apartment is filthy again, and the laundry needs to be done. Unfortunatly, Terminex is tenting the house Thursday and Friday for the termite problem we have, so I'm holing up either in a hotel, or my girlfriends' house.
Other than that, I saw LCD Soundsystem last night. James is amazing live, I wish Angela was there to dance with me though. Kinda boring by myself. (Even though I still got good and drunk during the show)(image) crappy pic from my phone of LCD
And the A's won a thriller in the 9th and 10th in Boston! Needing the confidence, that's for sure. While the Warriors lost a thriller in Dallas. Fuck, I hate Dallas. Their fans, the team, everything GRRRR!
Last Thursday I headed to Lucca on Valencia for the usual of 1/4 pound Sopresatta, 1/4 pound Mortadella (the Italian stuff, not the disgusting american kind), and breadsticks. Then over to Naia Gelateria hoping to score some Guinness Gelato, but found out they only do it for the week of St. Patrick's Day. Damn. Gotta wait til next March.(image)
