MCGONAGLE'S Authentic Philly Cheesesteaks

Well, I cruise Reo Dr. in Nasty City often and there has been changes. Roads repaved, added side walks, and new parking in the little shopping strip, as well as a new Authentic Philly Cheesesteak spot, MCGONAGLE's. I noticed the spot when dropping off some mail @ the post office. Been open for about a month and wanted to check it out. On Thursday after hitting the books for awhile, got mad hungry. So Battlescars and I decided to roll out like Autobots and check it out. As we rolled up the owner Dave was posted outside sitting with some locals.

As Battlescars and I walked in "Riders on the Storm" by The Doors was playing from a little Ipod Juke Box. When you first walk in you notice the bright orange and white paint, and a poster on the wall with names of the first 100 costumers. The menu is real simple, which I like since I'm indecisive sometimes, especially when I have too many options. Anyways, Battlescars and I split an Authentic (w/ cheese whiz) and a Pizza Philly Cheesesteak, which I enjoyed. Next time I'm going to ask for more peppers/onions/mayo. When I was done all I needed was a cool refreshing drink, an Arizona Black & White Ice Tea. E.VIL

Here are some pics. Enjoi.

BLENDS x Converse 1HUND(RED) One Star

Well, it's been a minute. Yes another late post by E.VIL.

Anyways, cruised downtown last Thursday, October 22 for the BLENDS x Converse 1HUND(RED) One Star release. Got downtown a bit early and saw my boy Big Mike posted in front of Armory so I strolled by to give some "daps and pounds" and bullshit while the homies played quarters for dollars. Daily hustle. After a little entertainment I strolled down to Blends.

I was debating with myself on whether or not I should head to Blends and peep the Converse One Star because I know I might just leave with a pair. I just wanted to show some support and chill.

Here is a little info on the BLENDS x Converse 1HUND(RED) One Star. "The shoe was designed and conceptualized by Tak Kato and Mike Toe, co-owners and creative minds behind BLENDS. Converse 1HUND(RED) is a year-long global curation project; commissioning 100 musicians, graphic designers and graffiti artists from all over the world to create one-of-a-kind sneaker designs inspired by the global fight against HIV and AIDS in Africa." Via email from BLENDS.

By the way I did pick up a pair. I couldn't resist. When you touch them and feel the material. You're like it's so soft. Plus, it's for a good cause. Peace. E.VIL

5 and a Dime x 7Union "Uncle Boy"

Post mad late. But last Friday (Oct. 16) I dropped by 5 and a Dime to scoop up the "Uncle Boy" fitted hat, a collaboration with 7Union . 7Union, who specialize in caps and hats, is a Japan based company, which has successfully created a second base in La La land. The collaboration is an East meets West military hat.

The "Uncle Boy" fitted design is inspired by the USS Midway (CV-41), a US Navy aircraft carrier (lead ship in her class), which was commissioned after WWII and active during Vietnam War and Operation Desert Storm. The USS Midway, now decommissioned here in San Diego @ the USS Midway Museum was stationed in Yokosuka Japan for 17 years before returning to the San Diego Bay.

The hat came in 3 different color ways: black, navy and purple, and limited to 24 in each color. 5 and a Dime also released two special limited edition shirts in black and white.

I picked up the black color way, which is actually my first 7Union fitted. The quality of 7Union fitted hats are fucking amazing.

Here are some pics. Enjoi.

Those who bought a 7Union hat know I moved the Official sticker to the center. My brain said, "Move sticker, not symmetrical."

E.VIL HIPPO

What up though?

Here is a a piece I did for my homie Jay, which is @ his pad in La Jolla. I never werked on such a huge canvas, 4' x 4'. Actually it's my first painting I really done, I think. Unless someone else can prove me wrong. I mean I werked on small canvases just messing around and what not. As you can see I'm not the greatest painter in the world but I do what I do.

Canvas hand made by KEM with found wood laying around the house and left over canvas. Material used for painting: acrylic and a variety of markers.

"Little Grey Cloud" Photos. Enjoi.

After two layers of paint and some clouds. Wish I took a photo before I added the second layer but whatever. That's life.

One day I just took time out of my busy life and got some werk done. No in between photos. "Why?" you ask. Not really sure.

Next, first layers of hippo and his green balloon.

Added thick outline to hippo and balloon. Finally done. Only took me like three months. I probably could have finished over a weekend but with life's obstacles, it took three months. Plus, good things take time.

Alex Pardee "Hiding from the Normals"

Well I (E.VIL) thought I let you know about an art show in la la land. Alex Pardee and Gallery 1988 Presents Hiding from the Normals. New werks by Alex Pardee, including paintings, prints, and shirts. Pardee is a member of Cardboard City and ZeroFriends.



UPDATE: PEEP THE SHOTS TAKING @ THE OPENING BY Daily Dujour

Hopefully I get a chance to drop by Gallery 1988. The art shows is one reason why I wish I lived in la la land but traffic is a nightmare.

Last year July 28th I cruised to la la land with Twinks, Keemo and Lik for the Alex Pardee "Scratches & Abrasions" art show @ Suru , which is co-owned by Joe Hahn of Linkin Park .



Here are photos from the show. Enjoi.
