Yesterday, I hit up In Stock shop to go check out Toddy that runs the Got Sole consignment shoe store on Parc ave. A new shop that just opened up not to long ago. A combination of 2 stores. First is InStock, then its Got Sole. Very clean looking spot. Toddy already had a bunch of thievery stories. I knew that Parc ave. was somewhat ghetto with crackheads and all roaming in the area. I once got my biking gloves stolen in less than 5 mins of leaving them outside of Brakeless. Or also the day I saw a crackhead walk naked into the doorway of Sylvester’s shop. That’s how the Plateau is nowadays. But Toddy had one crazy crook story about his laptop getting stolen. Ask him about it if you see him.
Last saturday, Sylvestre did a screening of the MACAFRAMA film by Colby Elrick and Colin Arlen. A beautifully shot fixed gear movie, all held in SF. The screening was under a bridge up in the mile end. Some ghetto/street setup. generator, Ghetto Blaster for the sound, projector, white sheet and some rocks and duck tape to hold it up! Also a bunch of good folks made it much sweeter.
Testing out my new camera at the Off The Hook 10 year anniversary party at the Drakopoulos crib. So far it shoots really great. Cant wait to experiment on more shit. Got to also credit Vince(on and beyond) for a few shots in the video, haha or else hes gonna hate me!
I hit up the RFC vs ULTRAS de Montreal friendly match, up in a sketchy park in St-Henri. Angelo wanted me to film some footage and I also managed to fuck around with my new camera. Here is a few pictures I snapped and the image came out pretty cool. Some ghostly effect shit…
I posted some pics earlier last week about the Ringleaders vs the Ultras de Montreal match. I did a little film footage for Angelo from the Ringleaders to announce their upcoming season. Im really happy with the end result. I still am getting used to shoot video with a dSLR camera. Music is by Portishead and the track is called “Roads”. I found that it worked best with the slowed down footage.
Thursday night, at the Saputo stadium, was the first leg of the quarter finals match between the Montreal Impacts vs the Charleston Battery. Our players held it tight for them and managed to score a very nice goal in the first half, scored by David Testo at the 10th min. The battery was a player down due to a red card. The 2nd half was a bit more tough for the Impacts but Rocco Placentino came in late at the end of the game and scored a superb goal from the left hitting the top post and in. The Ultras was present supporting our team and they were also loud. A little bit of push and shove between them and security but its all good. We need to win the 2nd match and head to semi-final.
Went by the Redbull Megahurtz for 20mins, I wanted to see Nosaj Thing’s visual but he was at the end of the night. Got fed up ditched the place and rode my bike around the city instead.
Last night I went to this alley way right by the shop to take a few shots for the photoshoot that me and my crew (Les Enfants Terribles) are working on. More info on it later this week.
Im still learning the camera I got and trying out different things with it. I decided to hit up the port with my girl and taking some more touristy shots.
I was invited to do a small cameo in a show that the 123Klan crew is working on. They still dont want to tell us what the show is about, but will find out soon. It was me, East and 2 puppets, chinese food, bubble tea, and Chinatown.
