JAPAN///TOKYO DRIFTING…

Just getting back from Tokyo, it's time to showcase this insane '56 Chevy 2-door Nomad. Absolutely flawless inside and out with airbags and very subtle and tasteful modern touches such as newer mags, tinted windows, modern stereo & air conditioning, etc, this bad beauty puts the best American Kustoms to the test. Topping it off was a seriously tuff paint color combo applied to absolute perfection. If only we had a Japanese driver's license...

COLLECTOR’S CORNER///SPEAKING OF THE STOOGES…

May 6, 2007  |  Uncategorized  |  Comments Off

In the aftermath of the epic Stooges show at the Wiltern in LA, it seems only appropriate to bring out one of the holy grails of Stooges collecting: a signed copy of the band's epic 1969 debut album on the holy grail of music media, 8-Track. Signed by the band —Iggy, guitarist Ron Asheton, and drummer Scott Asheton— over dinner in Detroit during the original rehearsal sessions when the Stooges first reunited in 2002, it was also the first time any of the boys had even seen a copy of the record on 8-Track. It still plays, too...

How many times in one life do you get to watch the STOOGES perform their first two albums live next to Morrissey from the private box? Probably just once. Wiltern Theather, LA: Moz was no one's dog. Iggy killed...

AUTORAMA///McQUEEN’S 1963 FERRARI 250 GT LUSSO…

There are holy grails of car culture and then there are vehicles owned by STEVE McQUEEN. Christie's has announced that Bullet's incredible 1963 Ferrari 250 GT Berlinetta Lusso (if you have to ask...) will go on the block August 16 at Christie’s International Motor Cars 2007 flagship auction in the Monterey Jet Center in California where the vintage front-engine V12 supercar is expected to fetch (conservatively) between $800,000 and $1.2 million. The car was special ordered (only 350 were built) by the actor from Otto Zipper Motors in Santa Monica, California in the rare factory color of chestnut brown metallic with a light beige interior and used as a daily driver for nearly a decade. In recent years it underwent a 4,000 hour period-perfect restoration by its current owner. "To die for" starts to sound adequate. You've got three months to save up. READ ON... Read More

Pushead & BxH's Hikaru: Brothers from different mothers...

Taking time out from the Tokyo travel rounds check-ins with BOUNTY HUNTER's Hikaru Iwanaga at his private studio and SECRET BASE's newest Harajuku headquarters proved well worth the trip. Hikaru's collection of vintage American & Japanese toys never ceases to astound (these photos represent but a fraction), while Secret Base's new "sleek dungeon" atmosphere provides the perfect setting for showcasing new & vintage product, the latter of which is kept behind bars in a very luxe toy prison cell.

Hysteric Glamour art director STEPHAN JAY-RAYON (aka: Stephanwolf) brought his own unique touch of danger girl death-glam to the East Village a few weeks back when his new solo show "Imaginary Film Stills" opened at Fuse Gallery. Needless to say, when someone from Hysteric is on the marquee, the ratio of sexy girls to dirty art slobs tends to be Read More

NYC///MURAKAMI’S MOMENT…

This week saw the opening of one of NYC's biggest art "happenings" of the year ("opening" is simply too inadequate a term) when TAKASHI MURAKAMI's new impressively titled solo show "Tranquility of The Heart, Torment of The Flesh - Open Wide The Eye of The Heart, and Nothing is Invisible" opened at the GAGOSIAN gallery's swank Madison Avenue branch. Few stars in the art world's sky burn as brightly as the Japanese wunderkind's, and this new show of pop eye candy will surely thrill fans and collectors worldwide. Critics might find the master's repetitive motifs simplistic & redundant but for a Japanese artist working in the Pop realm, the precedent of colorful repetition is a well-established tradition, both culturally and institutionally. Interestingly, in this show, Murakami has departed from his recent motifs of his Read More
