Happy Birthday Killuh B!

[Tuesday, November 23rd] After spending the entire day at the Creative Contraband offices with Killuh B, who was feeling unloved because she had thought everyone forgot about her birthday.  Her mood quickly changed from emo sad girl, to surprised happy birthday girl!

Props to Mink for planning the birthday surprise at an All-You-Can-Eat Korean spot in K-Town.

Angela x Nicole aka V-Town

K-Town's own... Mink!

Happy 22nd Birthday B!

In the words of the birthday girl...

Hellz x GPPR aka Miss Lawn x Bamski

Love these ladies!

Afterwards Mink and I headed over to our favorite LA Clipper's girls aka Katrina Jo's crib for a intimate gathering after her jewelry trunk show.  We ended up playing, "Battle of the Sexes," which quickly got heated... Thanks Katrina for hospitality! I love you're new place.

It was another night in LA with amazing food, great people, and fun times!

Video: History of Daft Punk in 5 Minutes!

I didn't know Daft Punk has been around for that long. Its crazy to see how far they've come.

Tron is coming out soon! :)

Trailer: Black Swan - A must see!

Wow Natalie Portman was absolutely magnificent in this movie. If she doesn't win an Oscar I'll be surprised. Beautiful & smart... She's my ideal dream girl! :) Oh yeah, did I mention Mila Kunis is also in the movie. Its a must see! I'm still speechless.
On top of that... They have a love making scene together! :)

Back in SF: Day 2 & 3 - World of Dance

[Saturday, November 13th] I know Day 2 of my San Francisco blog recap has been weeks overdue but its been a busy holiday season here in the office.  Just in case you missed Aggie's guest blog from Day 1, click here.  Alright give me a second to think back to World of Dance SF...

CLICK HERE to view photos from WOD SF weekend.

We started off our morning by heading over to the Hellz Sample Sale at the Black Scale store in Union Square.  The line was always out the door... These ladies definitely came up!
Racheem x Jino both held it down for Hellz.
Aggie and I stopped by the Nordstroms Cafe around the corner for breakfast.
It was time to head over the bridge to Vallejo where this year's World of Dance was being held.  I love this photo I snapped of the SF skyline, with Alcatraz in the background.
After about an hour drive, I finally made it to the fairgrounds!  Shout out to all the wonderful volunteers that worked the event.  Great job!!!
Wobz (TM) x Duckee x Carissa holdin' down the WOD booth.
Mark Mariano is the man behind the music!  HAHA
Who's world is it!?
Congrats to our Lower Division Champs: Art of Technique... These guys were only 7 and 8 years old.  Ridiculous what kids are able to do now-a-days.
Future Funk brought the house down too!  It seriously looks like CGI because kids aren't suppose to be able to move that way...
It was a packed audience...
Here's a Twit Vid I shot with my iPhone from the stage... It was crazy!

Congrats to the fam aka The Company!  So proud!!!  I think its because we took out Aggie the night before for sake, creepes, and fun times!  We're gonna need to make it a tradition! HAHA
World of Dance Champions: The Company
Marriott Hotel After Party with Team Millenium, Poreotix, and friends!  Kings Cup with Sriracha Sauce!?
All I remember is all of us laughing the entire time... Too bad this picture is a serious one! HAHA
Emerson Aquino (Funks SF)

[Sunday, November 14th] That night we headed over to to meet up with San Diego native Will (Funks SF) who recently moved up to the Bay.  We all basically had a slumber party.  HAHA
We ate lunch at a pho spot in Daly City to help us recover from the night before...
Then it was off to Haight Street to meet up the World of Dance fam to do some shopping!  Although I was there the weekend before, I was sad I didn't find anything this time around.  I hate walking away empty handed... :(
Its become a tradition of ours to have dinner at Cha Cha Cha's the day after WOD.  I can't even tell you the stuff we've done after a dozen plus pitchers of their famous sangria... SMH!
I've seen people try to down the entire thing... No joke!
Thanks Anthony from Tonic Live in SF for the hospitality!
The founder of World of Dance and one of my BFFs... Mr. Myron Marten!
I had to cut out early to head over toYamasho for Trung Tran's (Set 4 Life) birthday.
He had a private area reserved for 40+ of his closest homies... I'm glad I got a chance to make it out to celebrate with my Vietnamese brother.
Happy Birthday Trung!!!
I hate the fact that this mother f**ker doesn't drink, but he always makes you drink....
Thanks again to all the SF fam for always showing me an amazing time!  143!!!

GPPR: Holiday 2010 "Rudie Can't Fail"

Ladies and gentleman, after months and months of hard work at the GPPR Headquarters in Downtown Los Angles,  I'm proud to announce that GPPR's introduction collection "Rudie Can't Wait" for Holiday 2010 is now in select stores nationwide.
Born of multi-subcultural and diverse influences, GPPR seeks to create apparel for the everyday man to wear every day. The brand is personified by the four different facets of the modern man; The Gentleman, The Philosopher, The Pervert, and The Rebel. Each provides their own set of backgrounds and beliefs, creating an interesting and honest dynamic that serves as the basis of the brand.

Everyone starts somewhere, and while this concise yet straight-forward collection serves as an introduction for GPPR,it is definitely a season that will not disappoint. Entitled 'Rudie Can't Fail,' the Holiday line is dedicated to the British 2-Tone movement of the late 1970's and the working-class beliefs of the youth at the time. The black and white graphic language illustrates the GPPR ideology and ethos, echoing the 2-Tone messages of positive action and unity. Stemming from a constant immersion in Rude Boy subculture, ska & soul music and 2-Tone fashion, we decided it was an apt theme and message to the current cultural climate. The collection features a contrasting black and white color story as a juxtaposition to the aggressive graphics of the tees. Traditionally, black and white is used as a means of division; between classes, politics and races. However, as with the 2-Tone movement, the monochromatic color scheme was used as a means of unity between medium and message, preacher and choir. In a time when the world has given us just about every reason to turn against one another, as cliche as it seems, what we need now is unity. ‘Rudie Can’t Fail,’ seeks to lay the foundation for future GPPR seasons with a bold exclamation of our principles and beliefs. ‘Nous sommes le pouvoir,’ We are the power.

Holiday 2010 is our Message To You, Rudie, and as far as we can see, ‘Rudie Can’t Fail.’
