Almost there…

It’s about 8am now and I’m about to roll into bed but I wanted to start off the week with some random tidbits… I want to say about 75% of the orders have gone out. I just got back from the post office and mailed out a bunch of shit. Most of the orders are a little late and I apologize for that but they are most certainly on there way already and the rest will be off my desk by tomorrow. This past week or so has slowed down and given me some time to catch up so once all the orders go out, I will open up the store again since there have already been a number of you who have hit me up about merchandise already and asked when it will be available…

Headed down to San Diego yesterday to go visit my parents since it was Father’s Day and stopped by the Mitsuwa market to go pick up some new material to look at…

They were having some anniversary celebration at the store so if you spent like, a certain amount, you would get a free gift and so on and so forth. May went to grab some Japanese food to cook during the week and I swooped up the new Option mag and two VIP mags. I was only going to grab one of the VIP mags but then the issue of VIPCAR caught my eye because it came with a “SUPPORT OUR JAPAN” decal. I have a couple different “Support” stickers from Eibach when Takeshi and some of the other guys from Japan came stateside to visit but I have never seen one specific to the VIP-style market. It’s a cool design, just very straight forward…

I mean, any time the mags come with a free gift I will usually buy it but this one was pretty unique. A couple years ago I had a VIPSTYLE decal from the magazine itself and it was super rare but of course, I somehow lost the fucking thing. Just a cool little collector’s item to have, especially if it marks such a significant event in our history you know…

The Option mag I picked up because it has a bunch of new shit on the CR-Z. I just glanced at it and didn’t have time to really go through it but from what I’ve seen there’s a lot of really good shots in there…

Before I go, I just wanted to throw up a preview shot of some photos I’ve been working on. I took some pics of Ryan Der and Chris Sakai’s EKs from the Wekfest LA weekend and so far, I’m pretty happy with the way they came out. I am almost done going through them so when I finish I will toss those up. The shot below is just something I was messing around with and it ended up coming out with a pretty cool look. Just wanted this like, dramatic, almost cartoonish sort of look and the pic worked out…The rest of the shots aren’t really like this but I liked the way the edit came out so I thought I’d give you guys a glimpse of it. When I throw up the rest of the pics there will be larger versions…

That’s all for today, time to actually get some rest, then wake up and knock out the rest of the orders as well as these pics…
