hamburger city party pics

pics from the hamburger city opening…
the work was really incredible. it was like an issue of hamburger eyes exploded onto the wall. photos will be on sale at the LA store until the end of june. select photos will be available online (coming soon).
the obligatory crowd / drunk persons pics. that’s yasmin and asher, old school college buddies.
diamond encrusted jesus piece was there with homey The Game. Estevan Oriol (several of his photos were on display) rolled through with his family. Also spotted: Sen Dog(!!!) from Cypress, Good Charlotte dudes, and a couple that Jasper met at the deli, who ended up bringing their daughter and buying 4 photos.
this photo was featured on the flyer, and was the first one bought (stony snatched it up before the show started). Monkey (the dude on the back) and his boy were man enough to re-enact the scene sans bike.
if we did this show in NYC, it would have been Dude-Fest 3000, but in LA, the ladies come out strong. This girl showed up with a booty shorts posse (including one dude). I had to pinky swear that this was our record, to get this shot…
Hamburger Eyes posse is on Broadway. Below, Dwayne and Jenny of Oylerwu Collaborative, the designers of the LA store….
after the show… the mgmnt stopped in the Dime for a quickie (check Stony in his CEO khaki blazer attire), then Young took us to his favorite spot over toward Santa Monica. Warning: if you see this sign or this man, stay away. this place is evil. they don’t even serve alcohol in this place, but we felt like we were getting smashed. too much fun and highly recommended.


introducing the Lab-mobile #3 west coast edition. Turbo diesel with authentic 1988 chrome wheels and sky blue paint job.
getting ready for the Hamburger Eyes show. Hit up Smart & Final for 300 beers (which lasted a little over an hour), 2 containers of cherry vines, and ice…
ridin’ dirty…
jean is the only dude i know who can rock those pants.
more pics coming…


Tears of a clown.

I was watching UFC 60 just now and, in between rounds, the camera was cutting to show the various celebrities in the audience. I think the guy from King of Queens was there and maybe Leonardo DiCaprio. Both smiled and waved politely, as celebrities do when the camera cuts to them when they’re just trying to watch sweaty guys kick each other in the face. Anyway, the camera cuts to David Spade, who looks okay, except that he’s clearly hanging out with the same dudes he went to high school with, and they’re most likely still sleeping off his couch and telling him he’s cool — Entourage style. Then, to the horror of all involved — even his high school buddies, I’m sure — he flashed the devil horns.
And if you listened close, you could almost hear the crowd gasping, then whispering softly: “Hey, David Spade — 1999 called. They want their metal sign back.”



a little preview of the Hamburger Eyes show opening tonight.
should be an awesome time.
come on down, tonight 8-10pm (saturday)
