THE SHIT I DO TO MAKE Y’ALL LOOK FLY PARIS (SS15): PART UNE

 

…as always, better late than never.  Never not working, but I finally got a free minute to put this together, thanks for your patience…

Well another season is here and “Team Union” is off to Paris to work our asses off for 8 straight days of French: wine, women and fashion (the shit we gotta do…).  Our beloved Ryno has left us for greener pastures so this season my wife “Bephie” rolled with us to give us a women’s perspective.

Here we go…

We met these two guys at the airport.  Nigerian businessmen on their way to Paris for a conference…SVAUGE!

We landed on the day of the OAMC launch event at Colette.  No rest for the wicked, straight to work.  First guy we see…The Thug, AKA Thugmoki, AKA SUGGZ, AKA Tom Anderson, AKA Tom Onderson…the man, the myth, the legend! All white everything.

OAMC window at Colette.  Last year, this fucking truck was the bane of my existence; from getting it “chopped and screwed” here in LA, to shipping it to Paris sneaking it through customs, to unloading it on a street the 2 bicycles can’t fit on at the same time and then reassembling it.  But damn it looks good, if I do say so myself.

After the party there’s the after party…

Jon Buscemi (I say BOO-SKEM-ME, you say BOO-SHEM-ME).

But on the real, let’s get the pronunciation right…

BUSCEMI – BOO as in Casper the ghost, SHEM as in son of Noah, ME as in me, myself and I.
