A Gentleman’s Cut At Pappy’s Barber Shop

By on Feb 20, 2013 in SOCIAL | 0 comments

Designers + Barbers are more similar than you think. Pappy’s Barber started its roots 13 years ago as a body-piercing parlor based in San Diego. Marc is the owner of Pappy’s Barber/Propaganda Tattoo, but what drives him? What inspires him? Marc “Pappy” Bennett is one of the few if not the only traditional barber who embraces the feel and experience of how True Gentleman’s Haircut should be. A key part of Marc’s success is living a drug and alcohol free lifestyle. With a clear mind his goals were set and paved for him with full motivation and self-inspiration by keeping his mind right. “Extraordinary lives come from extraordinary mindsets.” Marc says. If your mind is clouded with substances how can you strive on your business yet alone progress to get where you really want to be. A Positive mindset and drug-alcohol free life is what drives Marc’s lifestyle to push forward his...

Drifting Through The Wild With Ryan Tuerck

Apologies for the lack of updates, instagramming, and blog updates as I’ve been under the weather and I also had to tend towards family health matters. However, I’m feeling much better now, as well as the fam, and I’m ready to kick start Fitted Life once again. So while I was sick, I pretty much remedied myself with tons of T.V., blog reading, and internet streaming. I also inherited a neat project car from my parents that will soon be unveiled in the coming weeks. Until then, check out this dope drifting video with Ryan Tuerck as he drifts into the wild.

Looking Back at Johnny Cupcakes x Nickelodeon Series 1 Release

By on Feb 6, 2013 in ART & DESIGN | 0 comments

Back in 2011, Johnny Cupcakes released a collaboration with Nickelodeon featuring classic cartoons such as Ren and Stimpy, Aaahh!!! Real Monsters, and Spongebob Squarepants. Just like all Johnny Cupcakes products, these would be limited and would only see one print run. Luckily enough, I snatched the whole series 1 at initial release. After 2 years of safekeeping these tees, I decided to finally part ways with the collection and posted them up on Ebay for other Johnny Cupcakes enthusiast and collectors. Though it was tough to part ways with the collection, I’m feeling good about it as I can send off these cool tees to someone who needs them more than I do. Series 1 was really cool as it featured Ren and Stimpy, Aaahh!!! Real Monsters, and Spongebob Squarepants. The Ren and Stimpy and Aaahh!!! Real Monsters were my favorites as they reminded me of my childhood. I think people who...

Extended FIRST LOOK at Fast & Furious 6

The Fast & Furious franchise has improved and gone a long way since the first movie. Yes, I admit it, I was never a part of the whole underground car scene back in the early 90’s (I was still playing with Jurassic Park and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle toys at that time) and I wasn’t one of those old school guys who had the opportunity to watch Option videos on VHS, but just like the mainstream, my first true exposure to the modified import scene was The Fast & the Furious. As a kid, the neon lights, flashy graphics, and loud rice cans were a cool sight and sound to see. I didn’t have the internet or magazines telling me that that it was “ricey” or “tacky,” so it was all cool to me. But in a way, the Fast & the Furious was the kickstarter to this whole car culture that we embrace today. Though, we wouldn’t get caught with big...

Behind the Block LEGO Palace Cinema with Designer Astrid

By on Feb 4, 2013 in ART & DESIGN | 0 comments

At an early age, I was very fond of LEGOs and I’ve had my fair share of pain from stepping on LEGOs as well. I have no clue where all my old LEGO sets went as they probably were sold during a garage sale in my youth, but the memories I had with them will never be forgotten. They were the perfect toy for a kid with a big imagination. They were also the perfect learning tool because they taught you the importance of following directions. Fast forward to present day, LEGOs are still kicking stronger than ever. While the other toy brands of my youth have slightly vanished from the toy scene, LEGOs are a dominant brand in the toy market. While browsing through some of my favorite toy blogs, I ran across this really cool behind the scenes video with LEGO designer Astrid. The video detail LEGO’s modular building Palace Cinema while Astrid elaborates on the design process....
