…on being confucious

Posted in Food for Thought by yoshi on April 15, 2009

for those of us who have suffered multiple heartbreaks, i hope the following will help you through… damn, if i could only write a bio of my life LOL – think, valley of the dolls. HA!

ok so this is a convo i had online with one of my girls… i don’t know how my friends put up with my caddy comments sometimes.

so ladies – please take time to read through and i hope you all will learn that women are strong because we’ve dealt with too much bullshit in our lives:

ms. heartache

yosssh how do i get my ass over mr. x
this is fucking retarded
i cant focus for shit


how about this
you’re a fucking idiot falling for an old wash out who works for [insert streetwear brand] and [insert shoe brand] and [insert skate brand].
how’s that?

ms. heartache

pretty good


feel any better?

ms. heartache

not much


he’s got nothing to give you
he’s a NOBODY
yea ok
he KNOWS ppl
but that only goes so far

ms. heartache

i think the one thing that’ll really move me past him is a rational/ nondysfucntional relationship
can you buy those at target?


but you can’t expect that to work either
you just need a rebound
you need someone to like you for who YOU are
not who you WANT to be

ms. heartache

thats money


you’re stuck in a fantasy world ms. heartache, time for reality. TIME TO LIVE.

ms. heartache

i think thats what i needed to hear


take the world in your hands.
its yours to play with

ms. heartache

i totally am
i have no idea why im stuck on mr. x
like… seriously NO IDEA
i think its out of jealousy

*read the rest here… (more…)

…on focus groups

Posted in Food for Thought by yoshi on April 3, 2009

today i attended a brief focus group with w+k and a branch under nike’s umbrella that you are all familiar with, but i don’t know if i am at liberty to say which one it is at the moment.

by far one of the more exciting discussions i’ve been involved with because it included everything i love: skateboarding, business, design, fashion, sneakers, and best of all – SPEAKING MY DAMN MIND.

in attendance, thanks to phil chang (and congrats on the new jobbie), were ray (mighty healthy), cool calm pete (one of the most talented and most sought out designers out there), spencer fujimoto (retired pro-skater, in4mation mascot hehe), amy gunther (kcdc skateshop, wesc activist), bradley carbone (complex mag), yu-ming (, and myself.

from w+k were neal, phil, and a few others.

from “nike” were nancy, jason, and sam…

it was a great session, i learned a lot from my peers and i hope they (w+k and nike) learned a lot from us as well.

i wish everyone involved the best of luck on their endeavors and plans and i really do hope the brand comes correct.

if not, we all will put you on blast on our blogs and post hatred for not listening to our advice – MUWAHAHAHAHA! jjjjjjk.

also, w+k… good fucking shit.

insight goodies

Posted in Fashion by yoshi on March 30, 2009

thank you to my girl v for always hooking it up FAT with some goods. now i’m not going to rub it in your face that i get shit for free. hell no! i’ve worked damn hard and i deserve a break… or two!

i DO however, want to share with you my treats.

ladies, are you listening?

insight is a brand unlike many other “streetwear” brands. its one of those lady brands that really doesn’t sit alongside any “genre,” so to call it a streetwear brand is far from the truth, much like saying 10Deep of Ice Cream is a skateboard brand.

in my opinion, insight is much like how nikita clothing is branded: for that woman who is STRONG, who is FEMININE, who is BOYISHLY BOLD, who is NOT AFRAID TO FART IN PUBLIC BUT STILL REMAIN AS DAINTY AS A TULIP.

YES, insight represents those of us who are all of these…

this brand has been around a long time and their clothing and swimwear speaks for themselves, here’s a peek at what i received, the rest you can continue on to itsDesignRelated where i posted the rest of the photos.


arite… i’m gonna need 2 things here:

  1. hard solid abs must be created from what is currently a soft roll of mush
  2. bikini. wax.
