So What

It’s Saturday night. You just got off of work from a 6 day work week and you’re walking toward an alley way in Japan that’s full of little bars. You’re looking for a spot that has a nice atmosphere and chill music, maybe even have a drink, but that’s not a priority. Amidst the glowing lights of all the bars you faintly hear some Jazz music playing… you walk towards it and stumble upon a cozy spot playing Miles Davis… it’s a listening bar.

You ask the owner what’s the name of this place? He responds “TANTRA”

As the song fades, it’s almost like it starts over. You’re thinking “is it on repeat?” But no, it’s not…

Time slips by as if you were in a tantric daze. You completely forget about all your problems and have a self realization. Keep places like this close in your heart and memories. Visit again when you need to let go. ✌️

Stay Cool

Owning a car without A/C can be hectic for some. When I used to live in Sacramento, this is how I cooled off. 🍧🥤

Speaking of cooling off, did y’all get your free slurpees this past Thursday?

I remember waiting for the temperature to drop to tolerable levels in Sacramento, then I would pick up a slurpee and cruise around. Vivid-bright colors, like the ones you see in slurpees, always sets off that summer time vibe, and Thrilla Krew does just that with their clothing. Peep out this Thrilla Krew x Slushcult collaboration:

This also brings back nostalgia for me. Gas stations served as sanctuaries during the hot days and nights. Though, us Runners never trashed anything, the way the characters are acting resembled how we acted on the highway. Steve Nazar is the man behind the drawings. If some of you don’t know his artwork, look up T&C (Town and Country) Surf Designs: Wood & Water Rage. I remember playing the NES game as a kid, I used to suck at the surf level 😅.

Since moving to San Diego, beach life is second nature out here. It’s another reason why I like Steve Nazar’s work. It’s the cool color combinations that’s easy on the eyes, and the way he draws his pictures puts you in a beach party realm, which is something you will see out here. I’m glad the weather hasn’t been too hot lately, unlike my home town in the state capital. Temperatures have been getting rather cool at night, making it good kickback and beer chugging weather lol

Stay cool y’all. Remember to stop and smell the roses and enjoy the little things. Peace.

P S., did you know JHPUSA sells Thrilla Krew gear?

New project/new maintenance

Picked this up recently. Still debating what I want to do with it…!

It’s a know fact that suspension parts are hard to find for this chassis… Lemme rephrase that, it’s hard to find basic suspension parts for this chassis. You can find name brand-top of the line coilovers, but that’s not what I’m looking for.

After purchasing this RA1, I did what everyone should do after purchasing a used car; maintenance!

What a chill night, I hope everyone had a chill Friday yo. Cheers 🍺🍻

P.S.

Coming soon:

New look for my EG… Project Kanjo-zaku
