Taka Hayashi x Vans

Was just out in California on a short sabadical (11days to be exact) escaping the doldrums of an east coast winter. I flew Virgin Atlantic (separate post to follow, that limey Branson just made my list) for the first time. Virgin on Virgin XXX. Anyhow…back now but not without a souvenir. Taka Hayashi Edition Vans Skate Highs, guaranteed to keep me cruising all winter. Shakazzz.

Ray Barbee in Ban This circa 1989 a full two years before Nirvana releases ” Smells Like Teen Spirit”. What’s the significance? Nothing, just a time marker for what was down the road I guess. Two thoughts prevail as I sit and watch this amazing part. 1) Ray Barbee has style for miles and 2) Interesting to think about the model of how information is disseminated  in modern times compared to back before internet. I’m mainly speaking about the lengths one had to go to be informed about specific topics. I can remember seeing this part and the entire Ban This video at my friend Sam’s house one Saturday morning months after it had already been out circulating. It took awhile to get from Los Angeles to San Diego and if you were on the East Coast or worst yet overseas it would have been a half  year before you set eyes on it.
