Last Night in Brooklyn

What a night!  –  I think I might still be a little drunk from red wine and adrenalin. It’s 4 am and I am finally home.
I have decided I live in the best hood. Two blocks from my house the HOUSE OF VANS opened its doors and its the best and biggest skate park in town (25 Franklin street 11222 Brooklyn).  You won’t see the entrance but once you look closer and past the filthy rotten doors you enter every skaters dreamland.
Everyone came out to celebrate the very special kick off party for the warped tour 2011  – and I came to support Strychnin’s cooperation partners from ” Keep a breast” charity.  KAB had a massive booth and I simply love the new campaign for the NON TOXIC REVOLUTION. We got to see the video premier and it’s going to be an amazing worldwide premier soon, watch out !!
Arturo Vega came out and we had a good chat about the Ramones Museum in berlin and what he could bring to the art fair …..and after seeing some really great warped tour bands – including LIONIZE, it was time for waffles made  by the great Van Doren himself. This was followed by a red wine chaser with Hosoi and the crew while watching Kaws making some live art for ‘Brooklyn Support’ and fighting a raging jealousy fit when I hear that the amazing Denis Mcnett sculpture on display is now in the permanent Vans ART collection…..I must have one too !!!!
Shaney and Kevin Lyman made my night by announcing they will be happy to come to Berlin and party with us so all is good  VANS WARPED TOUR GOES BERLIN….We can make it happen….
