BAPE x BEATLES - huh!? Looks like Japanese super streetwear brand, BAPE somehow got the license to use the Beatles image & name. I guess Yoko needs money. I like the Yellow Sub, Sgt. Bape and the Milos.

Velma & Scooby: Zombie Hunters

This is the "We've Got Some Work To Do Now" t-shirt by awesome illustrator, Travis Pitts. Re-imaging Scooby Doo in a world of zombies is an awesome idea. Hollywood take notes. Currently, tee is available at Threadless.

Fresh Jive DISSES

Obama Sushi - SUCCEED

This is from the SUCCEED website chronicling the epic successes of the world. I thought Obama's lips were made of SPAM. They might be shrimp. Thanks for the link, Danny.

Orko's Masters of Ceremony

Orko's Masters of Ceremony t-shirt by DRMTM. Parody of Master's of the Universe, of course. The Master's of Ceremony is one definition of M.C. but also the name of Grand Puba's (O.G.) old group before Brand Nubian. This tee is clever. Get it at DigitalGravel.

Great American Food Fest - June 13

Never got around to writing this from June 13th. Great American Food Fest, Mt. View, California, Shoreline Amphitheatre. This was like a get-together for America's best foodie eat spots. So instead of traveling around the country you can eat em all in one place. I came early with a bunch of people so we all got to share luckily. Plenty of people complained about long lines and sold out food - it happened but I had fun and hope they come back.

1) OMG.. Southside Market Texas Barbeque from Elgin, TX. I never planned on visiting Texas in my lifetime but I may. This little meal was the best. I shoulda got another one but it's not like I had a lot of stomach room at the end of the day at a food fest.

2) Saw Bobby Flay demo. He also judged a Bay Area's Best Burger contest.

3) Aida Mollenkamp from Food Network. I actually sat to watch this lecture on the grass and was sitting right behind other food network personalities chillin on the grass.

4) Remains of my barbeque and Junior's Cheesecake (Outta NYC) about to be eaten (was frozen tho). In the pic, I'm inhaling Graeter's Ice Cream, proclaimed as Oprah's favorite.

Not pictured. I also had Pink's Hot Dogs: Pretty good. Tony Luke's Cheesesteaks: not so good.


Sometimes outta sheer curiosity or sheer boredom, I look up people who buy my tees. I mean people like my tees & buy them, but it's a shame I pretty much don't know anything else about these people and we might have a lot in common.

So a guy buys my IGOD tee after asking a few questions on Ebay. So I check him out, see he has a Facebook and his Facebook pic is my IGOD shirt. I guess he's excited to get it. That's cool.

Adamson's French Dip - Sunnyvale

I really like this place. Adamson's French Dip opened like 2 months ago and I've been here about 4 times. They use wood fired ovens cooking meat slow. The top sirloin and prime rib french dip sandwiches are their specialty but they also got tri-tip, chicken and pork bar-b-que sandwiches. And that's it. So if you are vegetarian or got picky kids, you gotta go somewhere else or it's just fries.

Size-wise the sandwiches look small but they are stacked with meat. The tenderest & juiciest kind. I used to go the Philly Cheesesteak shop right in the same mall but not since this place opened. Sorry Cheesesteak shop.

Went to Ringling Bros Circus at HP Pavilion last week. I've never been to the circus before. But from my guess this circus was kinda Cirque De Soleil influenced... where they kinda wove a storyline between all the acts. But not really. It had all the trapeze stuff, elephants, dogs, clowns, lions and singing.

A few trapeze acts almost gave me a heart attack because the performers always slip a bit and act like they're gonna fall. I heard that they had motorcycles last year. Oh, they also had protesters in the front of the pavilion. I didn't expect that. I noticed there was an elephant that didn't do a trick like the other elephants but he didn't get no beat down. So no obvious signs of cruelty. I had fun.

My Jesus Piece

Munk One kicks a Jesus flashing his Kanye Piece & giving the peace sign. Pure genius on idea & execution. T-shirt made by Upper Playground. Available for about $27 at Digital Gravel til they run out.

Sam Flores bites Jon Foster

I like Sam Flores. He has a good style and has drawing skills. But biting whole ideas is a no-no. Read more here about the debate at You Thought We Wouldn't Notice. That's a site that calls out biters. I hope I'm never on it.

Vampire Body Count T-shirt

This tee design is from Tee Fury where they feature 1 t-shirt design each day. Limited to sell only for that day. So you miss it, you miss it.

I like this design, it's funny. You can't go wrong with making fun of Sesame Street characters and/or vampires. Muuhuuhahahahhahaha.

Thanks Wnoodle on the Giant Robot forum for this one. No thanks to blogspot for cropping the pic.

Myspace Add Request

Isn't it annoying when you get a Myspace Friend Request and when you go to check out who the person is,their page says "Profile is marked private". Well that leaves me nothing. Now I'm like I gotta judge the friendworthyness by the picture. It happened with this request I got today. No dis, I'm just saying.. why your belt and hand like that? Oh well, what would you do?

Budweiser X HUF Collabo?

Whoa! Everyone it seems is jumping on the Beer collabo bandwagon. I don't think this an official collabo tho. I do like these HUF designs better than the Supreme (see previous post, like 4 entries back). Maybe I should get on the Beer collabo action too.

QUICK.. someone get me on the phone with Natural Ice... then someone get me a Natural Ice.

Frenchican Toast - Ironic Chef

Yes, I am the Ironic Chef. I just grabbed what was in the fridge to make a quick breakfast and made up the recipe on the spot. I guess you can call it a Frenchican Toast (French + Mexican flavors on toast). 1) Artisan 4 Cheese Sourdough bread 2) Refried beans 3) French Brie Cheese 4) Sliced avocado. Toast the bread, spread refried beans, layer cheese & avocado and plate on Granny's favorite china. Bon Appetwit.

Who is Alexa Chung?

I guess Alexa Chung is MTV's newest host. I just heard of her. Half Chinese, imported Model/Host from the U.K. taking over the TRL time slot and TRL studio. She seems interesting but otherwise I'm sure no one has heard of her in the U.S.

Budweiser X Supreme Collabo

Budweiser X Supreme Collabo? What are they thinking? Didn't Grandma's used to stitch up these hats made with beer cans? Do people still drink Bud? Ah, but since it's Supreme, it'll prolly sellout. But WHY? You get to look like this dude.

Manny Pacquiao T-Shirts

Out of curiosity (boredom) I did a Google image search on Manny Pacquiao t-shirts. Here's 2 designs that caught my eye.

Flag Pacman is done by 5&aDime. And the Frank Miller Sin City type looking tee is done by EQPT. I think the EQPT is sold out.

Both are awesome! My friend Tony.PSD just designed a tee too. He should have it on his site soon. Check 'em all out.

Blip.FM Versus Last.FM

Lately I've been really getting into BLIP.FM. It's almost like Twitter with music. You start by picking your favorite music artists and BLIP.FM suggests user/DJs on the site (like you) that you can follow... meaning you can listen to the commented songs they like (Blips) they post right on your own page like Twitter. And the Blips run through like a jukebox so it is a constant flow of music. Constant if you got users posting a lot.

LAST.FM is a similar site without the Twitter like element. You pick your favorite music artists and are making kind of a radio station of similar music for yourself. And you can comment on tracks and befriend other users and see what they listen to.

I'll admit I haven't explored LAST.FM as much as BLIP.FM but both sites give great music and that's what counts. They both have their good and bad. I like the social activity & searching of songs on BLIP.FM. LAST.FM will play all the music you like. With BLIP I have about 60 DJs I follow and I get a lot of crap music but some gems so I keep em all. Anyways, check out both sites and you be the judge.

Wolverine Spam on TWITTER

I just got a new Twitter follower. Seemed fishy as her tweets were about ringtones and "hey guys check out this site". So I did a search on her Tweet and found a ton of people with the same exact "hey guys" crap. They all have Wolverine in their name too. Twitter doesn't seem to be aware of this SPAM yet cuz they'll ususally shut the accounts down right away.

Charles Barkley x HEAD x Certified Dope

Yo. My friends at Steady Bloggin are doing this tee. Limited to 50 being made. I guess this relates to a situation Barkley had with the law. Haha.

Wow - Sale Extended - I told ya!

Marc Ecko has extended the sale as I predicted in the blog entry below. How did I know? Well, they always extend their sales. Looks desperate. I don't mean to slam the dude but it's just like with the Auto Makers... Ecko has gotta change up for the times. I think Ecko in a comfort level and not concentrating on their core business. Ahhhh, stop the skulls!

Friday, April 17, 2009

No More Skulls, Marc!

Marc Ecko, if this is just a sample of what you got, you need to lay off the skull designs. Stop following Ed Hardy and the MMA look and do your own thing. Get back to your Hip Hop roots but even look beyond it if you wanna save your company. I bet this sale will be magically extended.

Pacquiao x Nike x SFGiants shirt

My friend Jessie posted about this on Twitter. I don't like to collect/buy t-shirts since I have too many, but I want this one! I don't know anything about it but it is a weird baseball / boxing collabo. Very cool though. I guess it is available at NIKETOWN if you're lucky. But prolly sold out.

Magic Wok Part 2

Went to Magic Wok again. What can I say, I like the food. This is ChixSilog: Fried Chicken with 2 fried eggs and garlic rice. I like this even better than the Pork Chop Silog (see previous blog entry). Also comes with Filipino Ketchup (I think that's what it is).

Visit to Magic Wok for Filipino Food

I had a craving for Filipino Food and went to this place near me that supposedly had it and Chinese Food. I usually am weary of small restaurants with large menus because you cannot trust the quality and freshness. But this place was great with an extensive Filipino and Chinese menu. I got the Pork Chop Silog and an order of 10 lumpia rolls. The Pork Chop Silog is a Pork Chop served with 2 eggs and garlic fried rice. Usually silogs (rice & egg combos) are for breakfast but Magic Wok serves this all day. I also got the lumpia to try it out. Lumpia are like thin, fried, filipino egg roll sticks with meat in them. All was good and too much food for me.

Homemade Tea

If you aren't familiar with my blog here... I am a frequent patron (test subject) of my local Acupuncture school. I'm just trying it out to see what it's all about (that rhymed). Well, for the first time, I tried some herbs as recommended by my intern doc. I was given a bag of goodies and instructions on preparing it. I guess you turn it into a tea drink. If you look at the pic above: it looks like pine cones, seeds, tree branches, tree bark, berries and cut up logs. Can I at least have some dried apple in there? Well after boiling it for a while and seemingly steeping the flavors out, I strained the water (which looked like unfiltered apple cider) and gave it a little taste. I guess I was expecting bland tea but what I got was the most bitter, foul tasting sh*t you can imagine mixed with dirt taste. And with a lingering aftertaste of vulcanizing rubber in my mouth.

Ugh, I can still taste it. I was like there is no way I can drink this... like this. I thought to myself... dude, I'm adding brown sugar or something. But instead I added a bit of water and some peach juice I had from Trader Joes. Still rubbery and bitter but I knocked the drink down quick having the liquid avoid my tongue. It made me feel sick later. I had a headache and had to go to the bathroom. When I later cleaned the pot out, it looked like I just cleaned out the rain gutter.

Del Freestyles on Twitter

More praises to Twitter. Documented here, I caught Del the Funky Homosapian a.k.a. Deltron 3030 doing a freestyle on Twitter. Purty cool. If you ain't on Twitter yet, you're too late, foo! Now I need to hear the beat.

Bolani and Piroshky

Took a walk to my local Farmer's Market on Saturday. This is a sampling of my day's bounty. I got some mixed salad greens with edible flowers. I think they are 3 bucks for 1/2 a pound of mix. Without the edible flowers it's cheaper so I got 'em cuz they must be expensive for a reason.

Then I got a spinach bolani. Bolani is a thin crust stuffed flatbread originating from Afghanistan. The guy I got it from was also selling a potato bolani which I will probably get next time. He was a nice guy and offered me a bunch of bolani samples with sauces he was selling. That pic is only a small piece of what you get. When you get the bolani, it is originally the size of 2 big a folded tortillas.

And I got a beef piroshsky. A piroshsky is defined as like a Russian stuffed pastry. Looks more like a big fried donut. The beef was chopped fine, not ground beef like i thought. It was good. I put some greek sour cream on it to add some acid to the friedness. I also got some cheese/artichoke dip and some sun-dried tomato hummus from these vendors. Kinda felt healthy eating from the Farmer's Market. I'll see you there next week.

Odwalla Vanilla Protein Monster

Boring blog day so I gotta run downstairs to the cafeteria and see what I can review. Haha. No, but I was thirsty and got an Odwalla Vanilla Protein Monster. $4 bucks (the price of a small meal at McDonald's) but as I tell the cashier, "I'm worth it!" I previously tried their chocolate one. This Vanilla Protein Monster tastes like the super sweetest soy milk. And the sweet is cane sugary tasting. Didn't taste the vanilla with all that sweetness at first but in it's there. Hopefully I'm getting some health outta it.

Twitter Search is FUN!

I want to tell people to get with Twitter but even I barely understand its purpose. But I did try out their Twitter search. It is kinda cool to get in on real-time conversations based on keywords. For instance, I searched out "Fry's" as in Fry's Electronics. And you can see all the people who are on Twitter talking about Fry's. I know this company well so.. Purty funny. Ah, something to do when you're bored.

WonderCon 2009 is for Lovers

Back from WonderCon 2009, Northern California's big comic book/sci-fi/etc convention. Just went on Saturday. Made a top & bottom list of my trip. Not in any order but #7 is up there on the positives. That was incredible!

My WonderCon Top
1) Got to visit San Francisco with great weather
2) Had a Mushroom Spinach Piadini from Starbucks (was cold tho)
3) Saw a lot of old friends and came with old friends
4) Bought a cool art book from artist, Ryan Hungerford
5) Costumed people (see above)
6) Thai food for dinner
7) Preview/interview with Watchmen cast
8) Saw a few celebs i.e. Adam West

My WonderCon Bottom
1) Wanted to buy something good but never found anything
2) Wanted to go back to Scott Morse's table but couldn't find it
3) The convention center was not organized. Took a lot of walking to get anywhere
4) Not enough time to see everything. I missed the Star Trek panel

Lee the Sobe Lizard on Twitter

The other day on Twitter, I mentioned that I didn't understand that Sobe Football commercial. The next day, Lee the Lizard wants to "Follow" me on Twitter. Meaning, I guess, he's interested in following what I do and being updated with my status.

I mentioned I was eating Trader Joe's oatmeal and Trader Joe's wanted to "Follow" me. Same thing happened when I mentioned "Travel Channel" because I was watching their Anthony Bourdain show and told the world. I guess the corporations are searching out who's talking about them. I thought the Trader Joe follow was cool because I like their store. I don't even remember a notice that the Travel Channel was following me. I just saw their icon on my followers page one day. But the Sobe thing is weird cuz I really wasn't complimentary to them in my comment. Nothing against them but I did think their commercial was just a bunch of random craziness. Not sure what to really think about this corporate search on Twitter. I guess I can't mention anything without some company looking for me. Maybe a year from now, I'll have a ton of corporate logos on my followers page. You heard it here first.
