MV Update / New Tross Shirts

I've been pretty sick the last few days, but I'm feeling a bit better now, enough to post a blog. (might even surf a little before work tomorrow, shhh) There's a lot goin on at MV Sport right now, we just finished our photo shoot, so it's time for me to get on that catalog design. Not the best time to be taking off a few days, but what can I do? 
Also,  the new Albatross hoodies should be done tomorrow. Fingers are crossed, I know everyone over at the beach is waiting on those. Soon come. Big-ups to my boy Ade for the illustration skills on our collabo.


Here's a sneak-peek at a few of the catalog shots from this year's catalog. Pretty cool to be able to make the graphics, be part of the shoot, then layout the catalog. I'm liking it. The whole meeting the models part aint bad either. 

The first five shots are from me creeping on the shoot, the rest are from the photog (props to Jim Lennon ;  )  ...

Phoenix @ Terminal 5

So, I got an email alert from Ticketmaster this past Friday, after having just gotten paid. Obviously I was gonna spend some of that newly acquired chedda on some tix. I saw that Phoenix was playing in Sept. (on the 25th, get tickets!) So I bought 2 tickets to that show. I was pretty excited, so I figured I'd share that on my away message, which then lead to my buddy telling me they were playing that very night! (DJ, you're the man) 
I had no idea. 
So then it's onto craigslist to email 10 people hoping to get a response with an extra ticket. A few hours (and "sorry, already sold it" responses) later I get my guy. He's filming a movie that night up on West 86th and can't make it. Sounds legit enough, I make the trek uptown before the show, the guy says the post was for a pair of tickets and I had to buy both. Sure, especially since DJ, who told be about the show, didn't even have tickets. 
Long story short, after about an hour of scouring the streets around Terminal 5 for two more extra tickets for DJ's roommate and girlfriend, we get into the show, and it was amazing. 
Great, great show. 
Highlights include: 1901, Lisztomania, Fences, Lasso, Sometimes in the Fall, Run, Run, Run, and of course Too Young

That just happend!

Ok, ok. Here we go. I now officially have a blog. Expect nothing but big things when you visit this page. On the chain of command of online expressive-ness, a blog should contain the gem's. Facebook can hold every single picture I have, Twitter can get an update now and then, Myspace can pretty much get deleted, but I'll keep this for the exclusive stuff. 

First real post to follow.
