It’s All About The Memories

It arrived in the mail today from France, and a wave of nostalgia waved over me while ripping off the plastic wrapping as a distinct scent hit my nostrils.  The scent immediately reminded me of fresh new yearbooks at the end of the school year.  Back then I couldn’t wait to flip through those pages containing all the greatest memories of the year, and I certainly didn’t wait to jump into “All Gone: The Finest of Street Culture 2012” today.

Just like our yearbooks, “All Gone” features something for every stereotype in school plus so much more!

Now there’s no way I would ever be able to acquire everything in this book just like I don’t talk to about 90% of my high school friends, but years from now I know I’ll enjoy flipping through memories.  Now if I could just get all the designers/collaborators/artists to sign my All Gone yearbook!

Red book limited to 750 copies and already sold out online.  Black limited to 1250 copies and can still be purchased here.

A KAWS To Move?

The Lakers won last night, L.A. All Day, “To live and die in L.A.” like 2Pac said, and all that good stuff; but there are just some things that really make me wish I lived New York.  This is one of them…

 

This 3-Car S Train wrapped with the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade campaign by graffiti artist KAWS travels exclusively between Grand Central and Times Square.  Wouldn’t riding this train make your trip to work just a little bit brighter?  Sadly the use of public transit is as rare as walking in L.A.; so yeah, I feel like moving to NYC right about now.

Check 12ozprophet.com for a great post discussing how far we have come from the days of erasing graffiti from subways.

 

boy toys

oh it happened. our favorite companion + our favorite boy = KAWS “Astro Boy”

KAWS companion pillow and vinyl Astro Boy

my 3.5″ vinyl Astro Boy circa 2007

available October 27 at the Original Fake store in Japan for ¥18,900 (~$240). really gonna try to get one when it’s released in the u.s., but it’s still pretty steep for a vinyl that’s probably gonna be 12″ just like it’s companion.
