Survival of the Fittest
I get in these modes and I just to hear that raw shit.
What’s realer then The Infamous?
“Fuck looking cute / I’m strictly Timb boots and army certified suits.”
Wearing a White Nike Windrunner, rigid indigo denim, and White on White Nike Air Force 1s, Lil’ Penny hit up a Knicks game, sitting in a courtside seat next to Rocsi of BET/106 and Park, dropped by 21 Mercer Street to design a Nike Air Force 1 BeSpoke with iZ, traveled up to Harlem to check out HOHNY, then hit up The Open Party at Santos
He is back in the streets promoting the release of the Nike Air Penny 1/2 Cent’s in March.
Boogie, a photographer born and raised in Serbia and now based in New York, has a love of chaos, violence and danger, which perhaps can be attributed to growing up in war-torn Yugoslavia. His first book, It’s All Good,is an ode to the gang members, prostitutes and junkies of notorious New York neighborhoods Bushwick, BedStuy and Queensbridge. Boogie attempts to document his subjects with no judgment, Boogie says “the last thing I wanted to do was moralize—anyone could end up like that.”

I don’t know about “Sex in the City”
I do know about Summer in the City
As it starts to warm up
I start to get nostalgic
I have yet to find a better place than Brooklyn & NYC during the summer
Feeling somewhat poetic, but can’t find the words to describe
Eloquence has always been option B for me

Deathbowl to Downtown
A documentary about the history of skateboarding in New York City.
With promises to be an unprecedented film, the documentary not only explores the culture of street skating, but also provides an anthropological overview of skating’s shift from the 70’s to modern day.
It also digs into broader issues such as how urban planning changes the environment of skaters and how skateboarders went from being ignored to being loved.
Never-before-seen footage and interviews ranging from old school skaters to current innovators,
Deathbowl to Downtown is definitely a film worth checking.
PROPS RATING – 5/5
Heading back East for a quick trip.
See everyone soon…
NY Times – City Room (Swipe)
It was gorgeous. It was abstract. It was criticized. It was confusing. And it’s back.
With its 45- and 90-degree angles and one color per subway line, the 1972 subway map by Massimo Vignelli was divorced from the cityscape, devoid of street or neighborhood names. It was criticized because its water was not blue and its parks were not green. Paul Goldberger called it “a stunningly handsome abstraction” that “bears little relation to the city itself.”
Now Men’s Vogue has asked Mr. Vignelli to update his iconic subway map for the May design issue.
