LBC x Steve Caballero

I was hanging out at the Lil Bullies Club booth at Agenda yesterday when I was lucky enough to meet skateboarding legend Steve Caballero. They collaborated recently and the product came out just great. What an amazingly nice & talented guy – he did the artwork for the collab too. He was there to pick up some of these great new Cab Dragon patches from the LA-based brand. Stay tuned for the incredible-looking Cab Dragon lapel pins to drop too.

Ludwig X ReVisit: Case Shell Pants

Here are some great-looking new pants from LA’s own Ludwig Van & ReVisit. The new Case Shell pants are fabricated with vintage Vietnam-era US military cases known as “CASE, SLEEPING BAG M-1945.” Cut in a classic 5-Pocket denim style which bridges the gap between jeans and Chinos, with dead-stock US Army twill tape belt loops, ReVisit patch, and vintage shank buttons. The limited production run was made in Downtown Los Angeles.

Trash

Trash is a great movie from 2014, set in Brazil, based on a novel of the same name by British author Andy Mulligan. When three young Brazilian garbage pickers stumble across evidence of a political scandal, they land themselves in hot water with a nasty corrupt cop. Drama ensues. Also, great music. It stars Wagner Moura (Narcos) and Martin Sheen.

New Year’s Revolution

Yesterday, my talented friend CRYPTIK posted this great video of a monologue by Charlie Chaplin, known as “The Great Dictator Speech.” It’s powerful and compelling stuff, I tell ya. The political satire film was released in 1940 and it’s amazing to think that the US was still at peace with Nazi Germany at that point. It was Chaplin’s first talking film and was nominated for 5 Academy Awards. “Make life a wonderful adventure.” What a visionary.

Tinseltown’s Comeback

Happy New Year! 2015 was a lot of fun, here’s hoping 2016 is even better. Thanks for visiting. Here’s another article on Los Angeles’ recent cultural resurgence, this time via The Guardian. Good article, but if you’re on the ground here you don’t need anyone to tell you there is a lot of magic in the air lately.
