I’m a big fan of tee shirts, and a big fan of graphic designing and such. I always wanted to start my own shirt brand of sorts but never knew what I’d call it. My tee shirt brand finally came to be called “Megalodon”. A Megalodon is basially this gangstalicious dinosaur shark that lived millions of years ago. It was like a shark, but super huge. My brand, megalodon, does not aim so much to make money and become well known in the “street wear” scen. Rather, i have many designs i would want to wear, but printing just one comeout to being like an 80 dollar shirt. by printing in large quantities and selling them, i get to wear the shirt i designed, plus i get a little extra money to print the next design. The first design i’ll be printing is the IRON BIKE TYSON tee. Look for it in the coming weeks!
Had some last minute print shop biz that required my presence in SF this last Wednesday. Here is a quick review of my trip!
I made it to SFO around 3 and was immediately wooped by one of my bestys Julio. Within a half an hour we were at the Rebel 8 headquarters baring witness to Mike Giant’s first Penny Farthing session since he moved back to the bay. Look at how happy Mike is with his prized Farther Peep that farther in all its glory! The mere size is intimidating to any average civilian but not to this antique cyclist. Mike compared the design of the farther to the tattoo gun. A few pieces re-sized but not much else has changed. Just think about it…… Way bigger than Craxs chub hub. Mike and bike in motion! oops I meant Mike farthing. Our friends Joshy and Elisa from Rebel 8 holding up our MCD x Champ Champ x WC t’s (for sale in our online store). Big thanks to Elisa for letting us hand pick our order! Then it was back to Julios for print talk! Above is Avis the Beast and Krease! Can you believe these two were my roommates in Ballard of all places way back in 1998? Wild how time flys….. Strangely enough my homie from Fed Way Dave Martin(pictured middle) showed up who I haven’t seen in years, no like literally since 96 or something. WTF now we meet in SF??? I also made a new friend pictured above MSK’s very own Steel! Was supposed to leave here and meet with my homie Mega from Black Scale but thanks to god and digital cable we got to watch LOST and smoke blunts instead! PS Aviso has one of those new, new, new, baller TVs and the picture is so good it makes the sets look janky. Sorry Megs Lost is a must There were a couple of precious pooches on deck. Bella and her besty Chino!
Avis’s girl Bella. Is she not the cutest?
Sadly the night ended I woke up on the couch and my trip was coming to an end. Here is Bella giving me some love before I left.
and here is the sunshiny gate in SF I had to wait at for a couple hours due to the snow delay back in Seattle. Fucking Seattle weather. Cant Mother Nature figure this shit out already? Jeebus.
BTDubs Virgin Airlines really is running shit. Flight was delayed so they pulled out the ring toss for a quick passenger contest. Prize being free drinks or movies. Competition was pretty stiff, two older ladies tied but then tall dude pictured came through and clearly was a professional ring tosser because he got like 5 outta 6.
Thanks to everyone who made this day trip awesome for me! Big ups to Aviso for the place to crash and rides, everyone at Rebel 8 for showing us the warehouse,Steel for the ride to the city and QS for the ride back from the city! I love all you guys and cant wait till we get to hang out again!
I’m a very big fan of manga, that is, Japanese comic books. NARUTO is one manga that I have spent the past 5 years reading. In a nutshell, it tells the story of a boy with a demon fox sealed with in him, who was once the town outcast. Through his undying fighting spirit, he wins the respect of others. He fights all sorts of crazy villains with awesome ninja moves and “jutsu’s”, never giving up. The artwork & character designs are also amazing. NARUTO is just plain awesome. Read it here (new chapter added each thursday): http://www.onemanga.com/Naruto/
and an awesome scene from the Anime it inspired.
If you’re bored or love comic books, NARUTO is just great
Making your way in the world today Takes everything you’ve got; Taking a break from all your worries Sure would help a lot. Wouldn’t you like to get away?
All those night when you’ve got no lights, The check is in the mail; And your little angel Hung the cat up by it’s tail; And your third fiance didn’t show;
Sometimes you want to go Where everybody knows your name, And they’re always glad you came; You want to be where you can see, Our troubles are all the same; You want to be where everybody knows your name.
Roll out of bed, Mr. Coffee’s dead; The morning’s looking bright; And your shrink ran off to Europe, And didn’t even write; And your husband wants to be a girl;
Be glad there’s one place in the world Where everybody knows your name, And they’re always glad you came; You want to go where people know, People are all the same; You want to go where everybody knows your name.
Where everybody knows your name, And they’re always glad you came; Where everybody knows your name, And they’re always glad you came…
