late to the party-planking

it's what happens when you don't have a twitter...

#planks, on #planks, on #planks.

Asif and Joel are some of the funniest dudes I know.Up until a few days ago, I had no idea what this picture meant nor did I understand the "phenomenon" that is planking. So if you're like me and have been living under a rock, it's time to get Clinton Sparks would say and educate yourself. Check out the video below if you're like me and have been under a rock for quite some time.

There's almost something so distinct about city girls it has to be said. This could be why blogs like The Sartorialist are so captivating. To me, city girl's look so effortlessly put together (although it's safe to say their looks are well thought out probably days in advance). Also, city girl seem to exude a lot of confidence and I can see why when they're thrown into city's like New York and L.A where it's fight or flight and everyone is out to be somebody. Confidence paired with intellect in my humble opinion tend to outweigh beauty on any given day due in large that no amount of money on this Earth can buy you either of the characteristics.

Before I go off on a tangent, which I tend to do quite often allow me to salute the city girl for keepin it real as well allowing girls to check, check, check their swag and keep up to date.

Random Thoughts | Blood In, Blood Out (1993)

when you expect nothing and get everything, that's destiny...

Pleated khakis, chambray shirts, denim jeans and jackets , tanktops with flannel check shirts, navy colored beanies, and all black sunglasses...need I say more?

Blood In, Blood Out was not just a movie, but based on true life experiences of poet Jimmy Santiago Baca. I'm not exactly sure how it spoke to me growing up because I was neither "chicano" nor did I grow up in East L.A., nonetheless, there was something about the film that was so powerful. Maybe it was the fact that Director Taylor Hackford shot the film inside San Quentin Prison and managed to get a great deal of prisoners to act in the film, which in essence, intertwined movies with reality (hence the reason I watch Entourage). Whatever the case may be, this was a great movie with even greater style. I may not wear my chambray shirt button all the way to the top nor only have the top button buttoned, but I definitely love a lot of these looks as well as what looks to be a French Work (Chore) Jacket in picture 8.

If you haven't had the chance to, or have never watched the movie I suggest you "Netflix" it.

Bolivar Pennisula - Fathers Day 2011

Better late than never right? It's been about a week since my last post and a lot has gone on since then. First and foremost, I want to say a Happy Belated Father's Day to all the amazing father's out there. It was quite refreshing to be away from "civilization" and the hustle and bustle of what I like to call the internet. Sometimes,  we (or I should say I) get caught up with things that may seem important at the time, but when I actually take the time to step back and breathe I realize that it's not really as important as I initially thought it may have been.With The Internet, Facebook, etc., etc., etc. it is sometimes hard to grasp the finer things in life i.e. family and friends and most importantly my marriage. I can't say I haven't missed the internet...but I'm very thankful to have had some time to step away, even only if it's been a week or so. (but who's counting right?)

it's not where you've been...

it's where you're going.

Random Thoughts | The Journey Man Look

swag sold separately...

Although these are two totally different things picture (Pitti Uomo) and video (The Rigout IV:The Stream) I feel that these styles both in picture and video are sort of intertwined. I'm definitely feelin' the "journeyman" look of both the man in the vest pictured above and the guy in the video. Not exactly sure why, but I love these looks, but it's sort of refreshing from all the crispy looks I've been seeing on the internet lately. Rugged, comforable, effortless looking..what's not to love.
