CNN's take on Poker Sitch

Regulate it, Tax it and just let us PLAY....so stupid.


Goodbye HKS US

http://jalopnik.com/#!5796802/aftermarket-pioneer-hks-usa-closing-its-doors

End of an era....HKS US closing its doors and all operations will now be out of Japan only. For guys my age, HKS is just part of car tuning.  Whether or not you had any parts, it was just part of your life.  As my days of a punk street racer, I never had any HKS parts as I was a Mazda Rotary guy so I never had anything from them.  But all my friends, from Civics to Integras to Supras all had HKS stuff.  It was literally woven into the scene.  Really sad to see them close its doors here in the US.

All parts now will come only from Japan, I wonder how this will effect costs to new/current customers.

Def will be missed.

OMG....BEAST!!!!!

Air Trainer SC II - Classic

Let me just say these shoes are very emotional to me. I remember having these shoes in Jr. High School. I remember all my "cool" friends had these shoes...even the tennis players, varsity tennis players! hahaha...I really loved these shoes.  These are pretty close to the OGs and my fading memory let's me believe these are great.

Highland Park - Graffiti

On my way home from MOCA, I decided to stop at the HLP station and walk around the alley/parking lot area behind Figueroa from Ave 56-54.  There is some excellent artwork behind the street.  It also changes ever few months.  Here is what I grabbed on Sat.....

MOCA - Art in the Streets

Went to check out the MOCA exhibit yesterday.  I heard it was going to be a crazy long line so my friends and I got there early before open.  Good thing we did...by the time we left around 130PM the line was out of control.

I will just let the pics speak for themselves.  I took A LOT of pictures...here are just a few.  If you are in the So Cal area you should really go to this.  Located at the Geffen MOCA in Little Tokyo.

Here ya go!
