Steve Aoki’s getting ready for Fast&Furious 6
Superstar Vegas DJ Steve Aoki worked with Orange, California-based MV Designz on customizing this Styling, Sleek, Black, totally tricked-out Scion. Just by looking at the outside of the car, I would like to have this. It looks totally banging and just in time for the new Fast & Furious 6 movie coming out next week.
The outside may look pretty awesome but being a DJ myself, The real Killer stuff comes in the inside of Steve Aoki’s new Car. It comes with custom-built Pioneer speakers, a Fog Machine and of course a mixing station. The only bummer is this is SA’s car and will only be attending Scion events through the year. At the moment, not for sale, but I’m sure the guys in Cali could hook it up for some Big time Kala.
For now, I’m going to get my Mitsubishi Lancer washed, spray some of that Bright, Wet, Bright & Slick Silicon on the tires and check out the premiere of Fast & Furious 6 on Tuesday May 21st. Sure hope it’s not all muscle cars and they have some Mitsu’s in the movie. If the movie has some Imports in It, I’ll let you know how it is late Tuesday night, if it’s all muscles cars, I won’t be doing a blog posting. Still trying my best to keep things High, Groovy, Positive Tip.
BTW: I’ve been streaming the new Daft Punk Album this evening. Not sure if it’s really them. Everything so far sounds very mellow, laid back and slightly groovy. Sounds pretty French Eclectic. If it is it, I do here two Chromeo sounding tunes that would sound good with a re-mix or two. One being “Up All Night to Get Lucky”
LMK what you think about the car or the new Daft Punk album.
No Spikes Here, Just Streetzblog on the scene with Tyga’s Beautiful female Artist-Honey Cocaine. If you’re wondering? HC was a bit different then I would expect from seeing her youtube vids. She is really nice in person and so was DJ Carisma. Both were very nice, Friendly, cordial and Thankful and truley grateful performers.
And Don’t Forget-Steve Aoki, Walter French, GSpot and the BQ Girls are all Going to be at the NFL Pro Bowl All-Star Block party This Saturday NIght January 26tth in Waikiki! Gonna’ be the Biggest Block Party in Hawaii’s History!!!!
Other Hot off the press NFL Pro Bowl News: Hawaii Five-O is rumored to be shooting a show this Weekend at some of the Pro Bowl Events and make sure you smile and wear your favorite gear at the game, Train is shooting their upcoming video entitled “Mermaid” Friday Thru Sunday on the Island of Oahu including some shots from this Sundays Pro Bowl!
Studs&Spikes are Everywhere..Well almost..
When I was in NYC in December the biggest trend I noticed the most was the influx of Spikes and then Studs. I had heard from my friend at broke2gear that Spikes were big in Japan back in October, but didn’t quite realize how big they were in NYC. The Shoes had spikes, the jackets had spikes, Pants were spiked, even the newest SnapBacks were either spiked or studded.
I noticed the spikes the most since this was more different from I was used to, the studs I used to have back in the early 80’s but not on my clothes, me and most of my friends had basic black leather bracelets with silver studs and sometimes silver spikes on them. The Gals mostly had the spikes, since it was hard to get into Club 3-D with spikes on your jacket or wrist if you were a guy. They were pretty lethal when the mosh pit got going.
I usually get out of the cab as Astor And Broadway in NYC and walk str8t down the street. The first things I saw were studs and spikes on people’s shoes, then I spotted many shoes in the stores with them on in silver, Gold and copper. Next I saw a couple of jackets on people with long rubbery black spikes and even the FIT museum had Spikes on the Thom Browne Ivy League gear.
that’s what I like about being in Manhattan, I can actually see if something is real or just in the magazines or on a mocked up website. This Trend was real and I’m not sure but it seemed to be peaking and heading to the suburbs since I did see a bunch of sales on lots of the Spiked and Studded Shoes. But since looking around Hawaii a bit this past weekend, I didn’t see much of the trend here, so I know it still has a lot of growth. Even the Girl at Claire’s said she “wasnt selling too many spiked or studded gear and if she did it was to the more progressive group of teen fashionistas”.
So, let’s take a look at some of the fun Spiked and Studded Gear being worn and displayed around the world:
Now Here’s a prime example of lots and lots of silver spikes, I doubt this would play well in Hawaii, but would probably wear quite well in Manhattan. It’s a DERYCK TODD Diamond Dogs Hat. $276 at Patricia Field NYC.
Next up is a pair of Studded STUDmuffin Sweatpants. I kinda’ like these especially the fact that they have pockets. I just can’t tell if there are spikes on the back, I suspect not, that would seem pretty ouchy. But I do like the casual yet Hi-Fashion Street Vibe they give off. I think I could pull these off at an Industrial Dance DJ gig when I spin-out as Sniper Wells-Or I may chicken out, now I don’t own a pair so it doesn’t matter. I do like the fact that they are shorts and could work in HI. I think you can also get these from Patricia Field NYC also, but I think you need to put a special order in, then they make them for you. Hey- Did I mention they have pockets? I digress a bit, but for button down work shirts, I always buy the shirts with the pocket on the left for my iPhone and when I buy shorts I always get them with pockets and this may sound funny, but I need them to be deep pockets or I wont buy them. I had one pair of shorts without pockets that I tried to wear 2x but I locked myself out of my car, forgot my wallet in my back pack and generally couldn’t stay organized. And if the pockets arent deep enough everything spills all over my car and that just Does NOT work for me. Now, Here’s the picture:
Before I hit the studs and of course the Kicks, here’s a couple more intersting spiked Hats. One is a custom New Ear Cap, next is the Bright Yellow Hot Punk Hip Hop hat available here and the other is available on etsy.com
Check these watches out! You can get in on all the studly action in a very low-key way with the Vince Camuto Watches with understanded studs, bet you could even wear one of these babies to work. Show your inner Punk Rock personality without even getting judged wickedly wrong by a new client in the boardroom. Various styles available here:
And finally on to the Kicks!
First off a pair of for Women. If I was female, I would for sure want to rock these! And since I’m not a lady, I would for sure date a women who wore these. Made of Nice Solid strong bright steel, with Silver Zippers and a rich Purple sole. I don’t usually get too excited about women’s Kicks, But I do recommend these spiketacular 1:00AM fashion pieces. Would look nice with a purple accented black dress cut just below the knee with some dangling bright silver skull earrings! Ruthie Davis Stiletto F*&K-Me Pumps $1395 More information available here at Ruthie Davis:
And for Men-Some Classic Docs with silver Spikes on sale for $350 available here now:
See you on the streetz This weekend at U.H, watching the NFL Play-Offssomwhere and hopefully at Yoga Nidra on Sunday Night!

50 Shades of Grey Search for Star Heats up!
The Search is on to see who will get the coveted role of Anastasia Steele in the movies from the 50 Shades of Grey Trilogy. Whoever gets the gig is set for at least 3 movies and probably 4 since most of these 3 book sequels make more than 3 movies. A Great pay-day for some lucky starlet and probably lots of sex with the male co-star. Some of these names come from the Gossip mags and some I just think would work well. I only read the first book and about 12 pages of the second. But no matter how the movie comes out, I’m sure it will be a Big hit, so whoever gets the part will be set for life. Let’s try the grey styled Poll and see who you think should play Anastasia Steele? Fill in the Poll or leave a comment or two, maybe you have someone else in mind or let us know who you think should play Mr. Grey? Let’s see if we can guess it right before they let the whips and Chains out of the Black Sex Shop Bag.
Actor Jude seen Boogie Boarding on Maui on New Year’s Eve. Check out his squinty eyed excitement as he catches the wave in the picture above.
I get a bit confused between the Actor on the TV show “Elementary” (Johnny Lee Miller) and the actor on the movie Sherlock Holmes (Jude Law). So, I was looking for all the tattoos Johnny has on Elementary and realized this is the actor from the movie with Robert Downing Jr. not the actor TV show with Lucy Liu.
Jude was on Maui Boogie Boarding or as many now call it Body Boarding with his son Rudy. Looks like they had fun, glad he caught a wave, the ocean looks pretty calm in the picture below:
And in “It’s all relative to where you live News” Here’s a picture of my friend KC from Power 104.3 wearing his winter garb in Hawaii where it is presently 73% outside. When I left Chicago this past Sunday (12/30/12) it was what I would call cold at a mere 17%. I guess the weather is like a big screen TV, I think a big one is 40 inches, while others think that 50 inches is too small and they need to upgrade to a 72 Inch TV. Cold in Hawaii seems to be anything 70% and under. Too funny!
What do you consider COLD where you Live?
What Size of TV works well for you?
Tuesday December 18, 2012
Seeing that I always have a great time in NYC the week proceeding Christmas, this year I figured I let you know of all the big highlights. In case you are coming to the Big Apple,This is streetzblog.com’s recommended itinerary. I typically do something quite similar to this each and every year. And have the most awesome time year after year. Last year I blogged about my trip on streetzblog. and the 5 years prior to that you could find the Hot finds under Hot Trends on another website of mine.
This year, I will just have fun. might have a few spelling or grammatical errors, this week, I’m not going for Journalistic award winning essay’s, just the fun and excitement of the big city without the stress of making it perfect. Hope you enjoy the listings:
Here’s Day One:
The Roosevelt Hotel: Str8ght off the plane I always head to the Roosevelt Hotel on 45th and Madison. Many of the people remember me and treat me just like family. Special shout outs to my good friend at the front Desk-Alfredo, who year after year it is a pleasure to hang out with and chat about what’s been happening over the last year. He is so totally awesome and Freindly, I truly recommend this hotel because of Alfredo and his expertise.
Then head down the street Uptown to:
The NBA Store: About a block from this store this year, I saw a man wearing the most amazing big brown yet extremely stylish boots, looked up and noticed his Military style sleek black top coat looked crisp, expensive designer type and pretty expensive looking. Then I looked into his eyes to compliment his shoes and got tongue stuck. It was the NY Knicks very own Amare Stoudemire! #Celebsiting on Day One. Oh yeah!
H&M: I usually hit this up on day one for some yearly essentials like real comfy black and slate grey v-necks and T’s (on sale this year for just $5,99). This year I also bought some of the David Beckham gear. And, It’s also a great place to get what I call “throwaway” trendy threads. Many of the looks are very NOW yet perfectly priced.
Uniqlo: Get yourself one of their ultra light thin shiny black, blue or silver down jackets. They are perfect for inclimate weather anywhere from 30% to 45%. And they take up ZERO room in your suitcase. They also have some great thin yet effective long underwear in extremely stylish colors and fabrics. Fun and exciting store to get rid of any jet lag that may still be stuck in your bones. Lots and lot to look at, see and do. Sit up at the top of the escalator and people watch, its so, so perfect. This is where I spotted my first real Trend for 2012. These were Women’s shoes: Short black or brown with silver zippers. With Light Brown WOODEN soles. They look totally Terrif!
Momofukus Milk Bar: For sure pick up some of the Milk Cereal for yourself and some for perfect office presents. The stuff tastes just like it sounds. Just like the sweet milk as you are finishing your morning bowl of fruity pebble’s cereal. I also recommend the cereal milk ice cream-have a scoop for a mid morning pick me up. And be sure to get some of their perfectly chewy cookies in Marshmallow, blue berry and chocolate chip. (I had 2.5 of these today, ohh so good)
Niketown: Wow! 5 or 6 stories of Nike products, kicks and on the top floor they have a NIKEID factory! The lady there also said that Spike Lee likes to come in every couple of weeks and that he was just there two days ago. I asked if he bought some SpikEz, she said “No no shoes, just B-Ball Gear”. Maybe you’ll see him when you go there. Ask him where he purchased the nice Bernard King Black and orange Jersey he’s been sporting at this year’s games. As you know I like black Jerseys and I would like a custom one of those. And don’t forget the Jordan “Bred” 11’s go on sale this Friday November 21st. I tried to figure out how to get a pair something about twitter and Niketownnyc, but it didn’t quite work for me. my advice: Better start finding a way to get your hands on a pair; this is the shoe of the year!!!
Barney’s: This is the Sneakerhead’s upscale boutique for some kicks and practically any and every other style of dress and casual shoes you can ever imagine. Last year I picked up a pair of Grendel “Fred” hi-top brogues in black with white soles. This year, I nabbed a super excellent deal on a pair of Paul Stuart slate grey, black and dark purple high tops I’d been eyeing for the last 4 months. And they usually have a big sale in mid December. Mines were close to $300 off their original retail tag. $610 shoes for about $317. It’s the only time of year I pay more than $100 for a pair of dress shoes, but they do have something here for everyone and last year I picked up a Barney’s card in a matter of minutes. Took my 9 months of $35 payments to pay of the “Fred’s”, how easy is that?!?!?!
And check this out! They have the Rick Owens High tops I’ve mentioned a couple other times on my blog. I didn’t purchase these ($1120) But I did try them on in the store and nabbed these two pictures! 🙂
Next up I had dinner at
Trattoria Dop Teatro: Everything was delish. the antipasto, gargonzola, pear and cheeze pizza, and my favorite dish was the arugala salad with shaved parm. Great and friendly service and I got to watch the Nets game live on TV
Then hit up Duane Reade for supplies. Even if you’re here for just a few days I suggest you get a Duane Reade card. After every $100 purchase you get either $5 or $10 to spend, depends on how generous they are each year.
Then I went back to the Roosevelt, ate another Milk Bar cookie and passed out. * I didnt really pass out the cookie gave me way to much energy so I wrote this blog..LOL Although, I do need a good nights sleep for Day Two and the Knicks vs the Nets game!
You can also follow the trip on instagram @streetzpix or Twitter Scottmackenzie3 or check out the Streetzblog FB page. I’d say instagram is the best bet. And if you live around here and want Streetzblog to come by and write about you, your products or your store, just email me at email@example.com or text me at 808 479-9928. I’ll be here until Sunday then over to Chi-Town for some Belmont Street Action!
Still Shopping for the Holidays? Here’s some HOT Shots
- The Lazer Blaster: Check this sucker out! It actually attaches to your iPhone and transforms it into a full on Lazer gun. Get the free App, slide the tricked out orange and black attachment on to your phone and you’re good to go! You can shoot up to 250 away and play with up to 24 people. Available at lazertag.com for a mere $39.99. Sure would be fun to have a bunch of these around work on a Friday afternoon..eh?
- Eau De Pizza Hut: Want to be with the “IN” crowd this Holiday season. Get your hands on this limited Edition Pizza Hut parfum. It’s very limited edition which makes it so sought after. Supposedly smells like fresh dough.Hard to find, makes it wanted by many. Kind of like the Burger King cologne that Ricky’s sold out of a few years ago. Although this scent is pretty easy to imitate, just get some of that gooey dough in the tube from Pillsbury, rub it on your neck and arms and you should be pretty good to go and smelling like something “Limited Edition” Or like you just cooked a bunch of pizzas. I think I’ll pass on this one.
- Rick Owens Sneakers: Big, Black, Bold and pretty pricey. But if you want to make a real Kickin’ statement, bust out the credit card and get yourself a pair of these for just: $1,210
- Jennifer Lawrence: Well, she isn’t for sale or anything and I usually do a special blog on celebs in Hawaii, but with lack of time during the Holidays and lack of internet service at my house for the last two weeks. Here she is live and in person on Oahu. Sal Masakala from ESPN said on the Surfers Poll Awards that she was staying over at Turtle Bay last week. He joked that he was trying to time his trips to the lobby so that he could check her out. Supposedly She was there along with many of the cast from the upcoming “Catching Fire” the second book and second movie from the Hunger Games. Here’s a few pretty awesome pictures of her on Oahu in November 2012:
