TSOTW: LA Snakers

My friends at Hutch LA have just reissued this classic Los Angeles-inspired tee from streetwear veterans Foreign Family, featuring the artwork of MR44. There have been some similar snake-y LA graphics in the past, but this one is the best in my opinion. It’s actually based on a Mamba, for starters. Available in black and white.

Guisados

I don’t post about food much here – maybe because I’m vegetarian, and I’m not really a foodie. I usually like to keep it simple, and by simple, I mean pizza. Today I went to Guisados in Boyle Heights again with a friend and loved it as always. I gather their meaty offerings are well-worth writing about; the vegetarian ones are too. Never disappoints. Also, the Limon Aguas Frescas is amazing.

Dream Car

Speaking of MR44, I spotted this amazing car in Long Beach today, while checking out Formula DRIFT which takes place around the same time as the Long Beach Grand Prix each year. Last year, I was lucky enough to go for a ride (mostly sideways) in one of the high performance drift cars – an incredible experience, one I’ll never forget. Here’s the equally incredible JP Edition Sonata Turbo Version 2 featuring custom art by the very talented LA-based artist. [View Gallery]

Self Starters

Check out my Hawaiian homies, Jasper Wong and Kamea Hadar, co-lead directors of the incredible POW! WOW! Hawaii and POW! WOW! Worldwide mural festivals, recently featured on the NBC Asian America presents Self-Starters program. They’re two of the best, most-talented, and hardest-working people I know. This is well-deserved. Congrats guys!

Tesla Model 3

You probably heard that Tesla unveiled their more affordable smaller new model last week – the Model 3 priced at $35K. It looks pretty incredible to me. Check out this edit of the presentation by Tesla founder Elon Musk via The Verge. According to Elon, they’ve had over 275,000 preorders since the unveiling. If the average Tesla order comes out to about $42K including available options, that’s $11.5B (yes, B for Billions) of electric car sales in one week. Not too shabby. Looking back I think this will be seen as a major turning point in the electric car revolution. Sorry gas guzzlers, your days seem to be numbered.
