It’s a Mega OBEY!!

Time is slow when waiting… am I immortal yet?

I am still gathering data, still meeting important people in self-important people meetings, still waiting for answers to other questions that allow me to put together time commitments, THEN I can really work on this (here) online project.

In the meantime.  Check out this stunning record-setting mural my old buddy Shepard Fairey did in Las Vegas, where he was met and gifted by yet another old buddy Branden Powers with pizza. (Yes it IS a small world.)

Street artist Shepard Fairey’s mural on The Plaza in downtown Las Vegas.

 

Yes.  I am killing time and sharing excuses while showing my friends achievements that don’t seem to have those to whine about.  EVERYONE knows about Shepard and Obey and will know even more with whatever he’s about to do next, since he’s a super political activist and I am sure the Trump thing will not sit well. Already Shepard has issued some beautiful Women’s Rights posters. There will be more.

That’s Shepard on the left and Branden lurking.

Branden?  Oh he’s just the serial entrepreneur and serial that’s-just-so-crazy-it-might-work idea man that brought Vegas- The Golden Tiki AND teamed up with the son of Evel Knievel to bring EVEL PIE to the Fremont District in downtown Las Vegas.

Maybe that is why I am subconsciously thinking of them as I’m somewhat mired by circumstance.  Shepard is the hardest working artist, hell maybe even the hardest working person of all, that I have ever met.  And Branden? That cat is one of the old school people responsible for the EDM scene as it is.  He was a GIANT rave promoter before EDM became an uhh, abbreviation (?), and since has been a juggernaut of weird throughout the wastelands of Nevada. They are two of my heroes and should be yours too.

We will be vending all weekend, well, my lovely assistant will be vending all weekend while I carouse by the pool, seek creatures, and bask in the zillions of pieces of art, craft, design and style that is the world of Tiki Oasis. All weekend, a complete takeover of a hotel, bar, and pool, with dozens of parties and bands going on all night in the suites after the seminars, tutorials, performances and rum tastings are over. Baby Doe and Otto von Stroheim have a real cultural phenomenon here.

Tiki Oasis 2014 in San Diego

Man, it LOOKS like we are a world-class pop metropolitan, what with Comic Con followed up by this coolness. It’s not. San Diego is still a frat-brat, binge-drinking, bro-town. We just have these breaks to cultivate our culture and talent (that ultimately heads north to LA or SF).

We will be VENDING the Danger Factory and Popular Naughty collections here over the weekend while we alternate our drooling over kustom kars and hula girls. Come see our pop subversive streetwear!
