This is the best show on TV. I see Bret sometimes at Pete’s in Downtown, LA.

Check this Matrix style photo capture of Tocco by Dave-O. Dave-O is another old friend from Michigan, and Bill just emailed this to me so i posted it because i thought it was insane!. Check out Dave-O’s website, and you can see more captures. There is even a couple of Danforth too! This looks amazing.

HONG KONG & HYPEBEAST

November 26, 2008

Made a trip to Hong Kong to oversee the production of the Matix book”This Is Progress” that i have been working on for the last year. While there, Willard and I caught up with Eugene from Hypebeast. We went to a diner style Hong Kong lunch (Eugene, did you ever drink that Carlsberg special beer?) and talked for a while about the market, blogs, streetwear, and soccer, apparently Eugene is quite an athlete – anyhow, BIG ups to Eugene for making the time to hang out and put faces to names…it’s much better that way. More about Hong Kong soon…thanks Eugene.
