THE #MCRIB IS BACK! CARTIER CALIBRE! THOUGHTS ALL OVER THE PLACE! it’s the weekend wrap bitches

Posted on

okay, before I get into jewelry or whatever I did this weekend (boring)
THE MOTHERFUCKING MCRIB IS BACKKKKKKKKK!!!!!
since my girl is a vegetarian (pescatarian really) she don’t let me eat bullshit like that…
TOO BAD! CUZ I’M SETTING UP OUR 2ND ANNUAL MCRIB INVITATIONAL/SUMMIT!
(dj marshall barnes, dj stonerokk, graham funke, eric cubeechee, dj mr best, dj politik, eric dlux and even though bitch ass homicide says he’s off it and on a diet, I’m bringing his ass with me again!) stay tuned for dates, but will be very soon!

and man…. don’t let me get one without any cartilage or bones in it…. just straight fake pork! YUMMMMMMM lmao

so last year for our McRib invitational…. a friend of a friend caught the whole thing and videotaped it….

and the captains of the industry did all the editing….

well that same guy Sam who filmed it wanted to sit down and chat about a few things….
so I chose the Grove (duh) and chose to meet up at the Starbucks on top of the Barnes and Noble…. it has a great view and it’s always dead during that time. Funny thing is there are always a few cats chilling up there who buy 1 cup of coffee and literally sit there for 5 to 7 hours!!!!! using their free decent free wifi and Sam pointed it out and I was like damn… people feeling the recession could benefit for real… and you can bring up a gang of your favorite books up there…. Tacshen has some awesome shit and instead of dropping $150+ on a book…. check that shit out for free lol. now starbucks in certain areas have wine and liquor after 7pm!!!!!! shit… if they do that here… I think I’d rather meet at a starbucks instead of a bar!

anyways, if you haven’t been, the starbucks at the Americana or the Grove inside the Barnes and Nobles are both great places to kill time and check out a nice view.

After the meeting…. Homicide hit me up to meet up at my house…
we got on a live Ustream chat with mad peeps this time… it was my most viewers to date out of the 5 chats I’ve had. Me and Homicide got foolish and talked to all y’all…. and we will do it again!

so after that, had to head down to my store to handle biz…
we’re working on a big order for xmas already! shit xmas and valentines day are my best holidays for orders!
so as I’m walking to the bathroom at my store… I run across a Massage/Acupuncture spot inside the mall… wtf???? hahahahaha…. now I’ve seen the usual, hair/beauty supplies, socks/fitteds, cheap downtown clothes…. mad shoe stores…. but this is a first time seeing a massage/acupuncture spot in the 25 years I’ve been going to Slauson….
sad thing is, this shit is make it for real in there! do you know how many agima’s and ajushi’s (korean men and women) could relieve their stress here? I’mma check it out today and see if it’s worth it!

so we got a watch from a client who lives in the Bahamas and his order got pushed back after my pops had passed….. so I felt bad, but I personally emailed the client and he was fully supportive of what was going on with my family and didn’t trip….. therefore, I appreciate you being understanding homey and you already know we killlllllleddtttt the watch!

he sent me a phone pic of the watch on his wrist….


and then……. 2.5 weeks later

BANG!!!
      

the model is called the Cartier Calibre and I’ve never seen one fully iced out yet, I think we may be the 1st to do one.
it has a 18k rose gold heavy case.
the watch has almost 6 carats total… this shit damn near took as much as the Cartier Santos 100 XL!
we machine set this beauty to death! some areas were micro-pave’d to perfection, the rest of the watch has 2 different sized stones on it…. we used the largest stones possible on the bezel and ONLY USED VVS1 E/F COLOR DIAMONDS FOR THE WHOLE WATCH! shit looks amazing! I love machine setting on watch…. looks dead on factory and when you brush your sleeve or cloth against it, it won’t get caught up on the watch because the setting is so clean

so another few micro fiber IF and Co pouches on their way to the Bahamas and London…. (don’t worry about what’s in the pouch to London lol)

f.y.i.
there is a LOT of jewelry that doesn’t make the blog, only because it’s either something we’ve done before and didn’t upgrade it or something personal that a client wouldn’t want shown, etc… I see peeps post on jewelry forums the same exact shit monthly! it’s sad… nobody wants to see your already bitten design 10x just like I won’t post 100 jesus pieces, unless we’re using different colors or something very different or a new mold. same goes with my personal life…. I don’t mention everything obviously….. sometimes my friends get butt hurt, like “hey why didn’t you talk about the dinner you had with your mom and girl’s parents?” ummm because It didn’t even cross my mind to bring it up here and I didn’t want to…. just like I’m not going to go into specifics about what celebrities I smoked weed with last night at my life long friend’s house haha

ok
kay

shout out to Wonny, a hard working korean student at USC who met up with me to cop some supremes and supras…. I still want to give you something for waiting homey….

shout out to the kid genius’s aka the superbad twins Cody and Dustin who also came thru and copped some purple kicks

so after all the work and errands friday,
Nic invited her friends over to watch Paranormal Activity 2…
I copped the tickets 2 days before because I was super hyped up to see this shit… we saw it at the Century City AMC IMAX theater and all of Century City has gone assigned seating now. I love it! smoked a doobie prior to the movie and got there just on time instead of wasting time waiting in a line and the IMAX screen is always crazy….
as for the movie? uhhhh not so much, definitely more hype than horror… I think you really had to watch the 1st paranormal to understand this one fully… I liked this one more though overall. At times it shook me up lightweight… but whatever, it got me out of the hosue and I’m not mad. I won’t spoil it for those who haven’t seen it.

got home dumb late…. watched a gang of Law and Order… but I need to be catching up on Sons of Arnarchy!

SATURDAY

was a gloomy day…. left the store early and headed back to the westside…
had lunch at Sushi Dan while I picked up my new C table at CB2…. that once shitty ass room is coming together like a for real for real room!

the food was semi-decent and like the barely good enough kind… but the view was nice… I was scoping out my boys Josh and Jordan cribs above the Chateau and a few other friends cribs I could see in plain sight ^_^ but all the time I was looking out the window and thinking about eating a mcrib that had just came out that day! and right across the street at the location we had our mcrib summit at!

so we left CB2/Sushi Dan and headed home…..
took a nap and chilled out for most of the rest of the day….
got bored and I tivo’d kanye’s new movie Runaway and I think it was a huge mistake…
I felt like I was high, but on a bad high where I wanted to not be high anymore

I called and texted some of our mutual friends of Ye and team and the real ones spoke their minds, the others seemed scared to state an opinion or said YO THAT SHIT WAS FLY!
cmon… I got my degree in cinematography and even though some of my choices of film don’t have the best budgets or screenplays or even visually look as good as WANTED or AVATAR….. I’ve had to lower my standards… for a lot of shit that’s come out in the last decade.

okay, this shit is terrible. I will say visually the movie had it’s moments, but it had no soul and the editing was terrible…. I mean, that was hype williams issue when making Belly, but I will say Belly looked really fucking good and the editing was great, it just had really bad acting. the first 4 minutes of Belly shits on this whole movie if you wanted to make a movie basically one long music video…. I will say I was impressed to see Kanye using a MPC 2000 XL instead of a MPC3000 and I thought since he was trying to be super artsy etc… I thought he’d have an OG SP1200 and an AKAI S900… but oh well. that shit was awful and the devil metaphors with an image of Michael Jackson present? WOW SOOOOOOO FUCKING DISRESPECTFUL…..

I michael did a better job with Moonwalker and he had also sold over 100 million records then along with tons of other shit that sets him amongst the legends…. this whole 30 minute movie reminded me of a nuevo fake Jean Michel Basquiat film…. it reminded me of what Banksy had said about Brainwash’s first film before Banksy came in and helped out with editing…. it was just a mess of tons of shit… but since Ye has the microphone, he’s going to express and forcefeed peeps whatever he wants…. too many people are scared to say no…. hence the infamous “YES MEN” inside people’s camp stay quiet and don’t disagree because of fear of losing a check. fucking sad.

there’s a difference between being a hater or just being bitter and old lol.
I don’t hate my guy…. sometimes shit is just too powerful. but maybe because I personally know dude. I mean, I didn’t get the best treatment from Michael Jackson at times, but I respected that, same goes with Prince even though both had been really cool to me at times…. but smh at even the music now. before the 808 and heartbreaks, was when I felt like shit was really on point with the beats and songs… although I liked some of Ye’s verses in his opening song rhyme and I heard the song that pete rock did on Ye’s album and I loved that… but the toast song is like trying to make the word “fetch” happen (smh + lol @ mean girls movie reference)

spent the rest of saturday night depressed from this shit… and ate shakey’s pizza (my favorite pizza chain hands down) and killed some mojo’s! watched some more Law and Order and talked a gang of shit on Twitter

I didn’t watch the UFC fight. don’t give a shit about that and haven’t watched UFC since like 1999… until they go back to lettings motherfuckers give it to each other and not letting people hold each other like lovers… I’m good…. less grappling and more beat downs…. also, take out referees completely please. I remember back in the day when Joe Son got punched in the balls 18 times!

anyways…. so SF giants vs. the Rangers? yipppeee?? who cares lol, it’ll be a boring ass world series… but much love to my bay area cats!

SUNDAY

woke up hella early! shit, at 5:20am my boy Matt was out in Canada being hella extra canuckish and was duck hunting!
NO LIE! HAHA I called him out and laughed…. then he showed me how serious he was

whoa!

took my simple ass back to sleep and woke up late….
headed over to Sawtelle and got some official ramen and did some nic nac shopping

went back home to get ready for my 30+ year friend Anita’s bday party at her house….
Anita, YOU HAVE A BEAUTIFUL FUCKING HOUSE! I mean, you and my sister always told me… if I didn’t spend all my money on cars and champagne, I coulda got a much bigger nicer house! but fuck that… I’ll stick with my current mortgage and make it work! BUT I LOVE YOUR PLACE! so nice….. someday, when I don’t mind gardeners and pool cleaners and landscaping peeps around… I’ll stick to my minimal HOA’s…. although when I got home, I told Nic how much I wanted to step up my game haha….. but back to the party…. so good to see everyone! damn, I haven’t seen some of the OG homeys in forever!!!! Paris is throwing a halloween house party…. could be fun because I didn’t have anything planned… hmmmm

anyways, me and Anita hopefully will have some great collabs coming in the future, thank you again for inviting me into your home, hope you love your gift and thank you for all the trees! hahaha, I was high as a cloud! “the stoner room” lol

while I was catching up with my old friends… my boy Rex MMS’d this pic to me



now, you know I can carve the shit out of some gold or platinum and make some fly ass jewelry…. but my ass can’t carve a pumpkin to save my life! dope shit!

I kept getting texts about how Rob Kardashian was repping our canary diamond g-shock frogman super heavy on the season finale of Keeping up with the Kardashians…. thanks Rob, I appreciate all the love homey…. let’s get up on that next project….

and speaking of Rob Kardashian…. my trainer, aka his best friend since they were kids…. mr Adam Goldston aka the guy who helped me lose over 40 lbs in 2 months! HAS BLOWN THE FUCK UP IF YOU DIDN’T KNOW! a week ago the NBA banned his sneaker line Athletic Propulsion Labs! since then he’s got over 5 million clicks and has been on the front page of ESPN to CNN to YAHOO sports to NY TIMES to sooooo much press it’s crazy! Adam’s shoes do make you jump about 3″ higher and I think they look very futuristic…. I haven’t worn them, but they’ve been sitting inside my closet for the longest…. so I should prolly try them out huh? that’s why I need to sit down with Adam today and see what we can collab on…. Adam and his twin brother have always been very supportive of my business and spent good money at my store and so has his family…. this is crazy! and now a guaranteed few million with his hit! after grinding for over a year pushing these shoes! his dream has become a reality!

more from Adam and APL soon…..

lot of bday’s this weekend…
Drake turned 24, didn’t call, but we talked on BBM…. he’ll be down here in less than 2 weeks…. so we might go in
Tila Tequila turned 29… damn I forgot to call or bbm or even twitter, so I need to now, HAPPY BIRTHDAY THIEN! haha
