Memory is a funny thing. When I was in the scene, I hardly paid it any mind. I never stopped to think of it as something that would make a lasting impression, certainly never imagined that eighteen years later I would recall it in such detail. I didn't give a damn about the scenery that day. I was thinking about myself. I was thinking about the beautiful girls walking next to me. I was thinking about the two of us together, and then about myself again. It was the age, that time of life when every sight, every feeling, every thought came back, like a boomerang to me. And worse, I was in love. Love with complications. Scenery was the last thing on my mind.

Last Thursday, Corbin and I headed down I-80 to the FIFTY24SF gallery for the Shinganist show, curated by Usugrow, featuring work by Toshikazu Nozaka, Mozeskey, Bene, Jun Kaneko, and Usugrow himself. The show had a large turnout, including an appearance by my (unbeknownst to him) cousin Robin Williams (glad to see him out and about).

It was exciting to see some of Usugrow's newer pieces for the first time. You might recognize a few of these from the shop, in the form of Black Dallas tees (which quickly sold out).

Toshikazu Nozaka's work also stood out to me (if anyone has six grand laying around, please buy this for me).

Inspired by the event, we've decided to re-release a limited number of Usugrow x Black Dallas tees, beginning today.
