Thanks to recent uploading sprees (dare I say, a bonanza), I've hit the monthly limit at my hosting site. More pictures coming - soon - but a hiatus until the 31st is in order. Maybe this will be the (much-?) needed impetus pushing me over the edge of actually making content-filled drops rather than a blast of photographic waste. Holla.

T3MOK tag, corner of Wall and College.
Stay posted up in them skreets.
On the bus home - Send Help (a/k/a the "Made for Skate")
SB Dunk Lows.
Still enthused by that Staple Varsity.
Friday night, I rolled with Victor to the Dport basketball court, where
Atticus bread. Free at 11 PM err'day on the skreet.
The basketball court doubles as a dance studio... the
wisdom of which is highly debatable, seeing as how the
mirrors are non-retractable and there are basketballs
flying around [||].
Rachel invited Vic over to learn a dance from TV's own So You
Think You Can Dance...
Yup was in town for the night and down to ride.
Mohlei getting down to business.
On the real, I miss that mustache already.
A chorus line.

After prayer on Monday night, we gathered to cele-
brate the anniversary of Rachel's matriculation into
Faithful KASY husband.
Waiting... biding our time, letting momentum build.
The fuse is lit.
Jae, in preparation for the night's entertainment.
Rachel is a connoisseur of teh R'n'B. So some of the guys
decided that a thoughtful birthday gift would be a very
personal rendition of Ne-Yo's Closer.
The ever-prepared KASY father.
Joe, thoroughly embarrassed by the second verse.
Ben, nonchalant by the third verse.
Max, Rachel's dance partner, and Emily: posted up.
Joe mad ticklish.
For your consideration/enjoyment

My dad and I rose around 7:30 Monday morning in
order to hit the road and get me to Philly on time for
the 8:40 bus back to New York.
After arriving on-time and circling the bus "stop" near
Madison Square Garden for 20 minutes, I hit the
skreets of New York at 11 AM. I'd made sure to keep my
Monday schedule clear through the evening, to account
for travel time, so I had the rest of the morning and
afternoon free. So of course it was time for a straight up
gear hunter mission.
Two downtown trains later, I was straight bougie
stepping out in SoHo for all the usual suspects: Union,
Clientele, Uniqlo, H&M, Y-3, and the like.
Uniqlo has a new robot assistant.
Dude is programmed to make eye contact with
customers and respond to simple questions.
Most the time I was in store, he was wandering
around the womens' sweaters though. Not a good
look for your kind, duke.
My original target was Reed Space, Staple Design's retail location.
However, remembering vaguely that their shop hours began
somewhere in the afternoon, I wandered around SoHo until
around 12:30, then headed over towards the L.E.S.
Arriving at Reed, I noticed their drapes still drawn, so I bummed
around outside until they finally opened.
My actual target on Monday, however, wasn't
technically Reed Space: I was actually straight gunning
to come through the Reed Annex, the next-door bargain
bin that replaced Reed Space's old sales/clearance
Reed Annex is the bomb because not only are all gears
marked down 30-70% in the spot, but they are always
stocked with plenty of hard-to-find Staple Design gear
from the previous season, all marked down by a good
In my case, I have had my eye on the black CMU Staple
varsity jacket since it dropped in the Winter 07 lineup.
Of course, at the time it cost a cool $350... not a good look
for me at the time.
But with a little more money in the bank, a 50% price
reduction, and winter quickly approaching, the timing
just felt right this time around.
The best part? The chenille patches in this colorway match two pieces
from Bust Out season 2 - the fitted cap and the MAN VS. CITY tee -
to a T.
