  • When it's not fun to fly

    So my old lady was flying from Monterey to LA last month and her greatest nightmare scenario in life came true. We literally talked about this kind of situation 2 days prior. The landing gear on her plane wouldn't come down and they had to make an emergency landing. Vice just published her article about it and I wanted to share it.

    Here's video of the landing.

  • DUB LAB RECAP

    Woooo, I think I'm still hungover from this weekend. From what I do remember, it was a good one! Saturday over at Urban Outfitter's Space 1520, Dublab was running their semi annual Proton Drive. They were raising money to keep the non-profit online radio station cranking out the sweet, sweet jams. OBEY took over on Saturday and we booked the talent for the day.

    The line up was siiiiiiick!!!!

    IMG_4436

    It was an early morning my friends and the sea was angry, like an old man trying to return soup at a deli. Teebs was first on the decks before his flight to NY. I have to admire his dedication showing up all positive and shit.

    IMG_4433
    Then I attempted to hit some swank tunes but took no pictures because I look like a scummy metal head and thought it would be inappropriate. Roams was up next, playing the down-tempo smoothness. It was very emotional and I cried for an hour. He was followed by Co_Fee, who started bringing it up with that haaaard shit.

    IMG_4439

    My nephew was not impressed and was thankful he brought his walkie talkies and Cheese-its.

    IMG_4453

    Free The Robots and Co_Fee were enjoying… beers started flowing and then things got messy.

    IMG_4455

    Gaslamp Killer went on and magically Bushwick Bill surfaced. Gaslamp was crushing the left field vibes playing a really unique set, different from his typical club appearances. Make sure to check out his and all the other performances when they go onto the Dublab.com archives.

    Free The Robots got on and Bushwick Bill wanted to get back on the mic to do some classics.

    Got hungry afterwards and ran into the dude from Office Space. Damn it feels good to be a gangster.

  • Let's go PSYCHO!

    Our main man The Thief is back with another rad psychedelic outing. What was once called Psycho de Mayo has turned into a 3 day epic lineup of some of the world's finest in the rock-and-or-roll music, now called Psycho California. (is an East Coast PSYCHO event in the works?) We've sponsored this event for a few years now because it's a sick lineup and to support a dude who had a vision and will to make this kind of show happen. What started as a few hundred people at the Yost Theater in Santa Ana, CA is now a gathering of thousands of like minded derelicts and outsiders that love good heavy music (our type of people).

    Anyway, we'll be there again this May. We'll be doing the T-shirts again and some posters. These are the graphics below. More info on the event HERE.

    It's almost fully sold out but some tickets are still available HERE.

  • Friday Night Blight with The Shrine and Dirty Fences

    _MG_5579

    We've been sponsoring the West Coast Worship Tour with The Shrine (Venice) and Dirty Fences (NY). We had done a tour with these dudes in Europe at the end of last year and put out a zine (with HUF) and had a rad time so decided to do it again. So on Friday we threw an extra special LA event. It was free to get in, with free beer and rum compliments of Pabst and Sailor Jerry. The vibe was right, the music and pants were tight, and everything turned out alright (cops didn't break it up).

    In case you weren't hip to what we were throwing down he's a photo recap of the night.

    _MG_5541

    Olivia Jaffe, one of the contributors to the zine we released for the Euro Tour, showed her work in the front of the space.

  • SEATTLE OR BUST

    I think my body is still recovering from our recent trip to Seattle. For being such a rainy place it sure doesn't keep people from going out. Got to ride in a sea plane go, to a Cromags show, drink some beers, drink some more beers and throw a little party over at Zebra Club to commemorate the opening of our new section up there.

    Let's recap...

    Burl, our rep in the NW, picked us up at the airport in this sweet thing. Just our style! I'm kidding but we did really see this on the trip. Either this dude has a great sense of humor and I think I want to party with him or this dude is completely seriously and I think I want to party with him.

    IMG_3515

    This is the vehicle we were picked up in. Don't fuck with Burl! Dude is definitely in the A-Team or some covert detail.

    IMG_3583

    Thankfully Burl and Doug knocked out the heavy lifting before we got there. Heavy lifting for Nick and I is usually downing 12oz Coors cans. To prep the location, we thought it was necessary to do so by air. Nick contemplating life before we boarded. (also a little sneak peak at a hot fire jacket you'll see next Fall)

    lhotsky

    inplane

    Everything looked to be in order so the event was a go.

    First off, where my dogs at?

    dogs

    Line up at opening time. Thanks to everyone for bearing the rain. Apparently this one dude's mind was just blown. We have multiple pics of him inside and outside with that same expression.

    line

    Big Shout to Big Mario on the pizza and look at that fine looking section in the back.

    bigmario2

    Doug on the mix playing the most ignorant music possible. Do you Doug, don't ever change, and in the words of E-40, "Yup!"

    DOUG

    Also playing the smoothest of jams was our guest, local legend Sean Cee. One of the Huf crew and a damn fine DJ. Check him out on the Instagrams HERE.

    I'm not gonna put a picture of me up because I'm a shitty DJ and my mom says I'm ugly. But I will put some pics up of the Zebra Club crew. Ayo!

    Hell of a pour there young lady!

    Plenty of Pabst to go around.

    Here's the section with no one in the store. There's no one in the store because they were closed. I think they were closed because Lhotsky did damage to their plumbing. I made that last part up but it could happen. Make sure to stop by. It's both a men's and women's section and we're honored to be in a great store like Zebra Club. Please stop by and support!

  • 9 Horse

    The main dude Eric Pritchard just sent across a film he did of an adaptation of Charles Bukowski's 9 Horse. This is put to life at Hollywood Park Race Track, a week before it closed (future football stadium?), starring none other than the legendary Steve Olson. Check it out below.

  • Jay Z and Big L Freestyle

    I'm a nostalgic guy and always have a soft spot for the classics in hip hop. This morning I saw the main dude Stretch Armstrong post that 20 years ago today Stretch and Bobbito had Jay Z and Big L on their legendary show. Kind of crazy to hear Jay freestyling and as always Big L rest in peace! Just wanted to pass it on.

  • T-Classics, Round 1

    For better or for worse I collect shit. Kind of like how they say a gold fish grows to fit the size of it's tank (I think I heard that somewhere), I collect things to hoarder status. For me, I save mostly records, clothes and stickers, nothing like dead cats or used gum.

    I figured I'd share some favorite T's in my collection, some new, some old, some happen to be OBEY (I was a huge fan before I worked here), some of them just random weirdness. Mostly rock based stuff this time. Hope you dig it because I plan on doing a couple rounds of this. If you don't like it, I hate you and don't ever try to talk to me. Just kidding, I love everyone!

    Peace like nose grease,

    Pubes

     

    IMG_9768

     

    Don't remember where I got this one but it doesn't fit anymore. I', not as skinny as I used to be, so my chick repossessed it. Could be worse things in life than a foxy lady in a Black Sabbath T. Anyone know what year this is from?

    IMG_9688

     

    From Sabbath to Black Bart Sabbath. See how I did that! Like a lot of people these days, I'm into bootleg T's especially some Simpson's shit. This is from last year.

    IMG_9693

     

    Scored this on Hollywood Blvd, when Hollywood Blvd was scummy. Oh wait, it still is scummy! Was on a ride with my brother and the main man Hassan (check out his work, its super nice! HASSANRAHIM)

    IMG_9694

     

    Onto an OBEY shirt also from last year. Shepard did a Record Store Day 7" with OFF! (ESQUIRE article HERE) I really dig OFF! and was personally really into this project. I like how it almost has a Raymond Pettibon feel to it like a Black Flag or other OFF! release but still is inherently Shep's.

    IMG_9699

     

    A good sequeway into the next T.  It's a shirt Buddyhead Records put out back in the day. If you don't know what Buddyhead was it was run by this dude Travis Keller and his friend Aaron North (played in a grip of bands like Icarus Line and Nine Inch Nails). These dudes created all sorts of havoc, especially in the early 2000's. Doing things like posting Fred Durst from Limp Bisquit's cell number on their site. Anyway, back to the shirt, it featured a Raymond Pettibon work that I really dig still to this day. I've been trying to track down a print of this for a long time. I guess the T will have to due for now.

    IMG_9720

     

    Back to a couple OBEY classics I still love. This is really one of my favorite artist series we ever did. We got to work with the wonderful human being that is Martha Cooper. Martha is a LEGENDARY graffiti photographer that still shoots the biggest names out there and is one of the coolest people you'll ever meet. Follow her Instagram. These shots are from the late 70's in Manhattan when it was like a big playgroup and you could afford to live there.

    That's all for now. Shout out to the Presidents and all the lovers out there this weekend!

  • Rick Rubin for Rolling Stone

    Rolling Stone just put out a nice video that features Rick Rubin going back to his dorm at NYU where he founded Def Jam Records. He talks about the early days of hip hop and making records that were more representative of what was happening in clubs than the softer sound that rap records of that day were sounding like.

    Full of other highlights like interviews with the Ad Rock of the Beasties, LL Cool J, Russell Simmons, OG dorm mates and more.

    Always an inspirational story.

  • All My Friends Are Inside Me

    Last night I rolled over to Mohawk General Store in Silverlake for the opening of a new exhibition that some friends of ours put on under the Brain Dead project. It was a series of woven blankets by Tim Head, Lucas Clayton, Ed Davis, Russell Maurice, Hassan Rahim, Ryan De La Hoz, Will Sweeney, Misha Hollenbach, Horfee and Hiroshi Igushi.

    All the blankets are a limited series release available fore sale now at Mohawk for $250 each or $300 with a full size hanger. If you're in the area check them out while they're still up. T's and hats are also available and are highly suggested.

    The party was super busy both inside and out. There's only so much air conditioning can do when it's packed inside, you had to head outside to cool down. Thankfully there was free vodka drinks to cool you down. You know I had to take advantage of that cause the price was right! I know how to treat my lady to a classy evening.

  • Wildest Dreams

    It's been awhile since I posted so I figured I'd dust off the old keyboard and drop some jams that I'm feeling at the moment.

    I want to talk about DJ Harvey's newest venture Wildest Dreams. What is it that Pedro says during his class president speech in Napoleon Dynamite? "Vote for me and all your wildest dreams will come true!" Well that's kind of how I feel. In my previous life as a DJ, I loved Harvey's style and eclectic selection. He's really a DJ's DJ but I especially liked his forays into psych and rock with previous projects like Map of Africa and his secret cuts on Paul T's Sarcastic site.

    Anyway, I got the Wildest Dreams 7" on Record Store Day this year and got the record about a month ago. Today I saw the video for "Last Ride" done by George Trimm. It features Joel Tudor shredding the tubes, and is reminding me that Summer really isn't over yet. Check out the video posted via NOWNESS. They also have a short video up that worth a gander. Hope you dig it.

    "They are massive and cadaverous. Many were made in loose collaboration with a few of their writer-friends, and their tags pile up indiscriminately. Layers of paper and acrylic harden or peel scablike. Colors agglomerate and rot. Composition is a joke, each canvas a rotated corpse."

    Sarah Nicole Prickett for ARTFORUM

    ***

    “Raw, aggressive, unstyled - it’s a return to the gestural, the raw markings of graffiti, in an effort to strip it back to the nerve endings. If the campy stylings of latter day Banksy are Green Day, Mint&Serf are evoking the Dead Boys or Sex Pistols."

    -Jaime Rojo and Steven Harrington for Huffington Post

    Support, Therapy, and Instability, is a limited edition (Edition of 1000), 136-page hard cover and full color monograph printed on 128 gsm glossy art paper.

Contributing essays by Carlo McCormick (Senior Editor, Paper magazine), Cat Marnell (writer/former beauty editor & Vice "Amphetamine Logic" columnist) and The Peter Pan Posse. Photos byScott FurkaySupport, Therapy And Instability strips graffiti to the bare gristle of gesture and expression, while getting away far from polished graffiti murals and calculated street art. The series attempts to look at the narrative of expressions, rather than graffiti as a decorative aesthetic that often lacks meaning.

  • OBEY x OFF!

    As you may or may not know, Shepard recently worked with the band OFF! on a 7" sleeve for a Record Store Day release. If you don't know OFF!, they are amazing. It's Keith Morris from Black Flag and Circle Jerks, Dimitri Coats from Burning Brides and members from Rocket From The Crypt and Redd Kross. The band and Shepard received so much good feedback on the cover that they decided to release as a limited edition tee. It's available now on the OBEY Clothing US and Japan site only.

    Here's an article from Esquire about the project, check it out HERE

  • Psycho De Mayo... on May 11th

    Here's an event after my own heart, Psycho De Mayo! The Thief has put together one hell of a lineup this year and tickets are already almost gone. This shit is too good. Pentagram and St Vitus, what! I think there's less than 100 tickets left so strike like the wind and buy yours today. We're sponsoring this beast of a show and hope to get weird with you there. We'll be filming all day and are  printing up the official show shirt as we speak. The graphic was done by previous OBEY artist series collaborator Alan Forbes. As usual, he destroyed it. We'll put a few shirts up for sale online and more details on that as we get closer to the event. Check the lineup but don't stare at it for too long or your face might melt!

    Sick!
