If you’re in the Los Angeles area this weekend, pay a visit to the LA Art Book Fair at the MOCA Geffen Contemporary – a gathering of the world’s best independent book boutiques, publishing houses, authors, and the like inside a warehouse gallery space. For the street/skate-specific readers, you’ll probably wanna pick up Jerry Hsu’s new book (The Killing Season) and definitely catch the Larry Clark corner with an impressive display of the filmmaker’s vintage Fuct t-shirts. Open only until Sunday afternoon, so make it happen!
This was my favorite part of the entire show, and it’s Larry Clark’s words… Here are the excerpts from his essay about how incredible skate graphics and t-shirts USED to be — I didn’t wanna give you everything — To read it in its entirety, visit the MOCA in person.

So we did this really awesome collaboration with Nerf, bringing back the Turbo Football we all grew up with and loved. And we figured, hey, what better way to cap off this project than to corral all of our friends in the Los Angeles and New York Streetwear communities, and have squads of grown men toss around a spongy kid’s toy for a day of flag football? The Hundreds New York‘s Turbo Football tournament was held last weekend with Thrillist coming out on top. Saturday afternoon we held The Hundreds Los Angeles‘ Turbo Football tournament here at Pan Pacific Park. Since the temperature was in the triple digits, we also decided it’d be a great idea to play on a gigantic dirt lot.
Of course in true The Hundreds fashion, we lost our own tournament (Something about an interception being the turning point? What did you say about Coop? I didn’t say that. You said that). Huf and Flight Club LA tied for first place. We grilled tacos and quesadillas for everybody. Vitamin Water provided refreshments, Nerf came through with the grand prizes. And Bonnie.
This was the first, definitely not the last. More tournaments to come for our circle of brands – my vote is for Royal Rumble wrestling.
Thank you to all the brands who participated and everyone else who came out to support…
First, the tied winners, HUF…
