Eerie Vacant Night Streets

“Whatever it is you're seeking won't come in the form you're expecting"
- Haruki Murakami

Clearly, I’m not the only one who believes there is something magical about Japanese streets. These photographs have perfectly captured the eerie magical anticipation which emanates from the wires, architecture, graffiti, trees, crows & manhole covers.

If you’ve ever read Haruki Murakami, it’s not difficult to imagine turning a corner & being whisked into another dimension where a strange man bearing a disturbing resemblance to Colonel Sanders urgently pleas for your help with a goat man, living in a run-down love hotel, on floor where there is no floor, in a room where there is no room. It turns out, his pet cat fell down a large, well-like vortex in the corner of this no-room, in no-space...

Top 8 Tees - May

Course I like the badass demonic samurai, but the colors R fun & pop. DBH has tons of good stuff

U've got 2 C this Shiroi Neko shirt up close to appreciate all the processing & foil work. Plus, I'm a sucker 4 anything with crows on it.

I'm a big PaleHorse fan & will feature more of his work in the coming months.

Obvious, but fun & well executed. :)

There R 2 Pokemon shirts on the list. I'm not a fan, haven't seen an ep., but I like the traditional woodblock print, ukiyo-e ref.

Emperor Eternity wear is very similar 2 Shiroi Neko in the detailing & full area printing. They're both big in Thailand & available on

The other Pokemon, sometimes visual mash-ups seem like they were meant 2 B like lost Lego pieces. This suits the iconic Banksy perfectly down 2 the pose & overspray accents

Nothing incredible design-wise w/ this tee, but they got the Silence of the Lambs font down & I find myself recalling this line @ random times during the day. Yellowmenace

MJ v Kobe: The Debate Settled

The 2013 NBA Finals are quickly approaching & sports writers are digging out the old Jordan v. Kobe argument again, even though neither of them have anything to do with this year’s playoffs.

This year the excuse is Phil Jackson’s new book ”Eleven Rings: The Soul of Success” where he weighs in on the debate.

So seeing as I know (almost) as much about basketball as Phil, the great YM will breakdown the MJ v Beko comparison & in so doing, settle the matter once & for all.
