B(.P.)MX

Since the economy's been in a slump,I find myself going to events/doing things that are $Free.99. The line is still existent, just waiting for more cost efficient launch times. Meanwhile, I'll give some insight as to what me and the LäWhy? crew do to waste time.

The homie Dom & his cronies hosted a pedal of a shindig @ Brooklyn Projects, to celebrate BMX's history via Freestylin' Magazine, as well as its entry into the Beijing Olympic Games as a legitimate event. The video below highlights Dom and a few BMX legends speaking on the evening and the times and events that culminated in the rich history the Retrospective book encompasses.

(BTW, check the video of the event below. Behind Dominic, LäWhy? makes a cameo, sort of. The fatass in the black T facing away from the camera holding the New Era is yours truly, while the homie in the plaid is LäWhy? agent Lance.)

Myu-zick V.D.O.

I have love for music of all genres, but when it comes to visuals, hip-hop videos (especially Hype Williams ones) have always been so necessary to me. Say what you will about the whole objectifying women thing, it doesn't make me appreciate stuff like this any less. Lloyd's falsetto-singing ass, the breezys in this, & the sample track are all good in my book.

This is why our country is so screwed up


An honest, workaday cat like me is having all the trouble in the world trying to sustain and put out a modest clothing brand with mad difficulty, while some quack-minded fudgepacker is selling shit like this "mankini" bottom, and they're probably selling like hotcakes too. Fucking Kitson Men.

HUFnSTUFF


So, as I'm trying to find inspiration (and what TO and NOT to do with this line), I stopped by the streetwear cockfest that is Fairfax and checked out the newest resident, pro skater Keith Hufnagel's boutique HUF, cousin to his several SF shops. Cool and simple design/layout,chill heads (They yanked the boy Mackey [peep his part at 1:15] from Active Valencia to manage the joint. What up son?!?)and some grade-A breezys (helllooooo Ryan *wink*)to take your money from you. Def check it, if you're into that sort of thing.
