???

You know you know about her, there's no denying that. I had the pleasure of meeting Paris at a couple of events this year, once as a bystander/attendee at the Sidekick 3 release party in Hollywood this year, and actually encountered and exchanged pleasantries with her @ LAX a few months back. Much love to ya Paris, I hope you're not too offended that our buddies at Coup de Grace love your "work" so much that they dedicated a tee graphic to you.

Size Up, you aint heard?



Touched what I never touched before, seen what I never seen before
woke up and seen the sun sky high, sky high"


There was a time when ATL made dope, true hip-hop. Not this ridiculous shit you see on TV that is supposedly representative of Atlanta nowadays. A time when OutKast actually performed on stage and in videos as a GROUP. A time when Cee-Lo was known for being the crazy stubby dude that rhymed hard, alongside T-Mo, Gipp and the rest, and not for Gnarls Barkley (no hate to Danger Mouse). If you ain't know about Goodie Mob or you think you can't get down with the complex simplicity of this tee, listen to Black Ice or any GM/DF track, and tell me that ain't the jumpoff. Dungeon Family.

Surprise surprise

Been catching up on last-minute schoolwork, but I've also been toying around with the LäWhy? projects around the corner, including the Symbiote bandana (hopefully dropping before Halloween!), a forest camo "SOULdier" hoodie, an M65 field jacket I'm considering doing a few of, and of course, tees for you hypebeasts out there. Stay tuned kiddies. School's out for a few weeks, which means more brainstorming and more product leaks. Honest Injun.

Oh wait, I'm not an Indian. I'm Filipino, which makes me crooked, hateful, and never on time.

Well, sounds like the streetwear industry as a whole to me.

Coincidence?

Childhood snack memories

You know you do it too. You remember all those wonderful-tasting, potentially bad-for-you treats that we enjoyed as children. I know you also reminisce and wonder what it'd be like to comsume those same treats now. though I know not all of you may have grown up in the same era/area as me, here are a few pics of my personal favorites:

My bad

As the wrath of Finals here at DeVry finally starts to set into the recesses of my mind, and the impending doom of my soon-to-be-bad-grades-if-I-don't-turn-in-all-my-missing assignments is finally realized, I completely forgot to keep up with this damn blog. I'm sorry.

As far as the LäWhy? Design Braintrust, I've got some things cooking up, but am just weighing my options and dealing with the numerous miscommunications/problems I'm having our current printer and designer(s). I know I'm the small fry in this industry of elitist giants, but hey, I still count god damn it.

But whatever, enough ranting.

The bandana will be dropping very soon, in very limited amounts. So if you're a geek like me, keep your eyes peeled and check back here for drop info.

And if you like the OG of allover prints (aka camoflauge, the ONLY allover that will survive), then you'll like what we might be working with. Here's a preview of one of the potential patterns:

the power of NikeTalk

I'm not one to admit that I still frequent sneaker discussion forums (seeing as I'm trying to slow down, even kill the obsession), but JEEPERS, in an effort to just get the Stolen Identity tee to be noticed on NikeTalk, the response has been overwhelming!!!!


I've since been relegated to 1 Medium sized one (when I should ahve ordered like 20 of them), and am doing my best to make sure those who ordered first get theirs, all the while still trying to get more exposure. Amazing what a promo tee w/a bunch of lovable recognizable logos can do. Hopefully those same heads and even more will enjoy our next couple of projects, which should drop real soon.

"...Streetwear graphics were always about the reappropriation of corporate graphics and logos..."

I love Air Max BWs

and this one is no exception.



Paris, Amsterdam, Berlin, Barcelona, London, Milan, and Istanbul. Seven shoes for seven cities in commemoration of Nike's 20 year love affair with AIR, as well as the three decades it has dedicated towards R&D. Artists with work inspired by the shoes and events will be on display as well. More details soon.

I've got to get whole shots of this BW. I know I said I quit, but the Swoosh always finds some way to keep "Pulling Me Back," word to Ching-a-ling & Black Ty.

Yum

Owww, my heart.

It's reminding me of how much abuse I put it through on Sunday, at a favorite yearly tradition of me, my brother, & my cousin Homer's: The L.A. County Fair and all its deep-fried goodies, including this beauty:



YAY!


The Krispy Kreme Chicken Sanwich!


Now back to my regularly scheduled heart attack.

hmph...

Well, I jumped the gun a bit. Due to a discrepancy w/the printer, the shirts came out alright, but not on the tees I had ordered. Fuck. Me. I said the style specifically and was given something else. Whatever. They'll be in this week and hopefully some of y'all are feeling it. If you are, hit me up on my email, which is temp. until I set up the e-mail for this site. I know there aren't a lot of you out there peeping the site just yet, but rest assured, there'll be plenty coming up that will have a lot of you checking back more often.

Major cocktease I know, but see the Venom pic down there? Think of that toothy mug of Eddie's, and add a little of this (not mine, but Cosby's, support them & buy this at Krudmart.)




Get it? It'll be sick. I promise.
