yeh, so you already know where my old man mind set is these days…. the type of shit I get excited about now is so different… I woke up at 6:23am because I had italian furniture that was delivered to my home! why? because I’m obsessed like that and had to have it at it’s earliest delivery…. tomorrow and friday I go back to shooting to wrap up my first season of my reality series! I’m hyped about that too. but damn this furniture though! lol… I finally can have a grown man get together and not be so damn anti-social with my actual real friends. all I need to do is grab some very minor things and our home will be a home. the backyard needs a little furniture too and I’ll be picking up that BBQ grill this weekend or early next week… btw, does anyone know how the fuck to get rid of fruit flies? we have such a pretty backyard, but a gang of fruit flies due to having 4 fruit trees! smh….
so this past weekend…. we watched Hunger Games, it was aite. Nic loved it though and we also saw Bully and that shit hit a sore spot with me, man that is a hard felt movie right there. damn. DAMN. shit made me angry for a good hour or so after the movie ended… I’ll be damned. anyways… we ate damn good this weekend for Nic’s bday, had boiling crab, ate at Farfallas and made a return to Bottega Louie and Bottega did NOT disappoint us at all!
Friday, I did some shit I haven’t done is so damn long. shit that most regular folks do, but I just haven’t in the longest…. on my way home from a really long week I said fuck this, I’m gonna stop at the liquor store by our house and get me a pint of Henny and some candy bars…..
smh Nic came home around 5pm and I was already twisted drunk off that apple juice and yak… my ass fell asleep too good! shit I woke my simple ass back up around 9pm and was right back at it. I feel like I haven’t drank in so damn long… I wasn’t even tripping off dinner.
what I was tripping off while I was in the midst of my drunkeness, was a tweet from someone who said they were inside a warehouse looking through shit and seen a box with this drawn on it….
I said what the hell is going on in the world? ha!
a lot of jumping back and forth, Cartoons Sanctiond event was dope as fuck and it was really like a grown mans carnival and I didn’t take pics because 145 bloggers were there and I just said man let me enjoy myself. but much love to toons and my entire soul assassins family. sorry I couldn’t make it to the dodger game yesterday! again I’m focused on this new house, work and this baby and of course my baby
thank you George. I don’t know what I’m going to replace this with, but the new 7 series drops in august, so I might just hold onto this for a few more months and get the new face lift 7 or if I have a great summer, say fuck it and get that 4 door Aston Martin just for the wildlife fund. fuck it.
meanwhile, I’m at platinum chillin with G and my boy Lupe and a bad ass young gun talented photographer Oleg…. and George gives me a 40lb gummy bear wtf? yes a 40lb gummy bear that needed a seatbelt for his ass to stay put!
so I sat down with Pete Wentz and we discussed a few things about doing some custom jewelry and he showed me his ROC piece that Jay Z gave him when Jay was the president of Def Jam and they were signed to Island…. he got the official joint
now back on some jewelry shit….
we made some new diamond wedding bands and some crazy rings:
7 row channel set, big stone VS diamond ring….
and then…. a regular grinding type cat came in and we’re making him a ridiculous piece. something that will be all over the blogs….
yep… a BIG ass fully flooded all VVS diamond white on white heavy as hell unpolo Diamond supply logo D! this shit is gonna weigh almost 300 grams with and be sitting on a nice franco and completely iced out… we’re trying to figure out if we are going to ice out the sides too. I’ll know later today. but this is going to be clean!!!! and mean! #diamondlife
back to eating!
here’s some pics from different nights with different dinners… Nic had 3 birthday dinners smh
farfallas was good eats man! been a long time, but they got consistent good ass food. good times with Michelle and Eric and Jovin and Yvette and Lisette and of course my wife.
happy birthday again baby
sunday night, Bottega was crazy. on a damn sunday? was like a 90 minute wait and they don’t take reservations… BUT you know haha
Bottega Louie rules because they just kill folks with the cleanness. they don’t try to do some abstract shit with design. no lame shit like Bazaar does or try way too hard like Red O does and then fail at their food… they keep shit legit and the design is just CLEAN. so clean you can’t hate. food is always A grade. oh and btw, Nic is 5 months pregnant for those who don’t know lol… so she ain’t getting fat. I’m sure she’s worried or thinks people think she is big, but she’s trippin! okay haha
no pics from Boiling Crab because we’ve done that shit soo much I mean how much of the whole shabang can you see? although the K-Town location is getting better and better….
so this week I’ve already been on the grind… been hanging with the superstar Biebs for the past few nights and he’s been putting in overtime for this new album which sounds fantastic. he really got some fucking world music that is easy to like. I met these cats called one direction(1D) out of the UK who are supposed to be a big deal. I don’t know, I don’t care, they were really cool cats and the least famous out of the huge pop star celeb packed studio session he had monday night. man! anyways, love making and creating new jewelry for my boy because there’s no stress. no profits, just work and swag.
much love to Kenny and Tay and Alfredo too… a lot of laughs with Scooter
I’m just blessed to be doing what I love to do and being able to post up and chill OFTEN!
that was the late ass weekend wrap up.
I’m all over the place, mentally. but I’m overall very sound
