Back when we were setting up our recent The Hundreds by Travis Millardproject, we paid the artist and illustrator a visit at his awesome cabin in the woods around Los Angeles (yes, they exist!). A slew of historically famous artists and authors have hid out around these parts and Travis is one of ‘em. It was cool and inspiring just to wander around his abode and look at all his doodles and illustrations – felt like being inside his mind. Like Being John Malkovich. Being Travis Millard. By the way, if you’re on Instagram, and if you aren’t already, I’d highly recommend following this guy to watch his process and Like his creative storytelling through cartoons.
If every morning were an eggslut morning, my cholesterol and I would be at odds. But every now and then (especially on Mondays through Fridays) (and definitely on the weekends), it’s important to treat yourself to the fluffiest, gooiest, yolkiest, eggiest sandwich in all of Los Angeles. If you’re offended by the name, that’s too bad. Head chef Alvin and his business partner Jeffrey, however, probably won’t be losing sleep at night (Not more than they already do, considering they’re up crackin’ eggshells before dawn).
Since they hit the streets in 2011, they’ve been protested and heckled by squeamish folks who don’t find their subversive promotion amusing. Buuuuut that’s their loss. This is the ultimate gourmet-breakfast-dispensed-from-a-truck experience, and it’s worth the wait. When I asked Alvin to tell me the sluttiest thing about eggslut, he replied “The whore hours. I don’t think any trucks are up getting ready at 3am like we are.”
For cheesy updates (see what I did there?), eggslut hours and locations, follow them on twitter, and be sure to check our blog next week for the video interview with eggslut co-founders, Alvin and Jeffrey.
Our dear friend Tofer Chin celebrates the opening of Ar at Lu Magnus in NYC. If you can’t up and jet to the Big Apple, read our conversation with the artist, and see a glimpse of his new work here. Ar is on display until June 29.
Get to know Tide, The Hundreds Warehouse Manager. He’s his own favorite UFC fighter, and likely one of the three most-intimidating-looking dudes you’ve ever seen in your life (unless you live somewhere really scary). Enjoy!
Congrats to Casey Veggies, Joshton Peas, and Anwar Carrots on the success of their new shop. It’s inspiring to see the new generation making moves and doing big things. To mark the occasion, we released a collaboration t-shirt with these guys, which may or may not be sold out. Stop by 311 Edinburgh Ave. to show your support and find out. And remember, kids, veggies are good for you.
Later on today, rapper/designer/renaissance Fairfaxian Casey Veggies will cut the ribbon on his inaugural brick-and-mortar store (just around the way on Edinburgh), P&C S. S., along with partners-in-crime Anwar Carrots (pictured below) and Joshton Peas. The Hundreds will be in good company among the store’s preliminary offerings, including collaborations with Puma, Crooks and Castles, U.S. Alterations, Odd Future, and more. We dropped by the shop to get a few snaps of the crew getting things set-up; stop by the Grand Opening at 311 Edinburgh Ave. to see what awaits inside:
If you still haven’t perused the pages of our latest magazine, well then here‘s your chance! Big ups to our friend/family/the dude responsible for making our mag look pretty, Hassan Rahim, and the success of his newly released installation entitled Pendulums, on display at The Standard, Hollywood now through the end of May. And now, a few words from the artist from himself…
Pendulums is a visual installation, and emotional experiment on intimacy and violence. The tense energy within this Box installation is a further evolution on the concepts of previous works with different executions. Conceptually, I aimed to appropriate classical imagery and intentionally lessen its value through both symbolism and actual technique; images are found, flattened, cut out, printed and pasted on paper, and visually “broken”.
CSS invited our own Bobby Hundreds to be this month’s guest editor. Never one to bore you with your standard “What do you do for a living?” interview, Bobby drilled hip-hop artist Alexander Spit about race, rap, and the elusive creative/commercial balance. Read it here.
