Well, it's New Years Eve and it seems as good a time as any to tip a toast to the queen of bubbles... A few of these bottles have gone down this season at the Hawaii compound, leaving behind a pile of packaging... My good buddy down the road, Doug Britt, recycled the packaging into killer holiday keepers... So, enjoy your evening my friends, and stay fresh... SS

Okay, I try to focus on the positive and soulful with this little blog project here... But, on my cruise through the blogosphere this morning I come across this photo with explanation of what it is, blah, blah, blah... Well now I am forced to make one thing perfectly clear to any of the brethren that frequent this location, or anyone interested in my journey... I, Shawn Stussy, have nothing to do with the corporation using my surname in any way, and have not since I sold my interest many years ago... After seeing something of this caliber touted as something cool, I am more than a little confused and a bit embarrased to tell you the truth... Dude, please tell me this is not what people out there are waiting for... SS

Another year is coming to an end. Please excuse my tardiness on posting as of late, the surf has been great in Hawaii and I have found it hard to sit at the screen and goof around... So here is a simple shot that is as good of filler as anything I could think of... Enjoy the end of 2009... SS

How about this sled for a coastal cruiser?.. This is about as pared down as it gets, we don't need no stinking bumpers... SS

A modern version of the American dream, not much different in spirit I guess from my great grandparents who came from Europe also. Well, except for the steroids and movie career and government job ... SS

This here is my road bike from the mid eighties... I have hung on to it since I got it new from my buddy, Daryl George, who ran a little shop in Laguna Canyon called Ozzies... He was buddies with all the Italian bike world guys... They would end up in Laguna every year during the big bike show in Anaheim... We would all get mexican food and they loved their tequila... This bike was a reissue of old graphics that Eddy had on a bike earlier, I forget the details... This bike was ridden pretty regularly 1983-1988... I always keep it hanging around as a reminder of great design... SS

Just explain to me how one could be more cool than this?.. But note, you only got so long to be this fresh if you follow in this guys footsteps... Homeboy took another visual path later in life, but there is no denying his flyness here... SS

This guy is at the very top of the cool dude list... Do the best you can with what you got... SS
