We were at a toy store and seen Triops for sale. I thought this was a joke, the box says just add water and you will grow these prehistoric creatures. So we had to get them.

Triops survived centuries from way back in the days when there were dinosaurs and have not changed forms at all, crazy right?!?

We had to get the kit, it was only $10. The kit came with a jacuzzi, hella eggs, food, thermo-strip and dirt.

Says in a day they will hatch...we shall see.

A new gym opened up near my house called FTCC, Faito Tamashii Combat Club, it is located at 6135 Mission Street in Daly City. "Faito Tamashii" is Japanese for "Fight Spirit" and was named by Darren "BC" Uyenoyama, owner and trainer.

Our boy Zachariah "Iron Monkey" Yngojo has been training at FTCC and is about to start teaching classes there too. He is trying to get me to go and how could I say "no" to him...

Preview of what to come...

After pushing back our opening date several times we are overwhelmed with aims, emails and calls with questions like when are we going to open, what brands are you going to carry, what is the Invisible Stripes stuff going to look like, or is the sales still going on??? And we get the weird questions like "are you guys moving or closing?"

So here is what I can tell you...our sale will continue until we re-open, we are condensing our brands to just a hand full, and here is a teaser to our new Invisible Stripes toddlers line.

Opening date is NOT on the 18th of is to be accounced at a later date.

The Bet...20lbs in 30 Days

Basically it is time for a change so Chris, Gem, James and I wanted to be a weight that is comfortable to our height. I always wanted to gain weight while everybody wanted to lose some pounds, so what better motivation then a friendly bet of $1000. Basically we broke off into teams it is Chris and James versus Gem and Myself. So who ever loses/gains the most weight combined wins the money by the weigh in date of November 13th. We are really not trying to lose or gain weight in a way that will hurt us but to do it in a way that will change our lifestyle. We will clue you in on how we did it as the time agoes on nd we wanted to blog about this to show our readers that it can be done...change.


Name: Tom
Height: 5' 10"
Weight: 138lbs

Height: 5' 5"
Weight: 167lbs
Goal: 157lbs

Height: 6' 2"
Weight: 183lbs
Goal: 173lbs

Name: Chris
Height: 5' 9"
Weight: 176lbs

We will check in about a week or two from now. Till then.

Insight Promo Pack

We just got a package in the mail from one of our favorite brands, Insight. It's a care package for their up coming season that we ordered called Dopamine.

They hooked us up with a potato sack, a dvd and a cd. I haven't had a chance to watch or listen to the cd but I know it's going to be some psychedelic shit.

Like always some crazy ass stickers.

They also threw in some post cards with some funny looking dudes and a saying under each picture (click on the picture to read what they say).

This one is my favorite, enjoy.

Me and my friend Raizel were craving crabs. I heard about a spot at Bayview where you can get a 2 lb. crab with garlic noodles for $20. So we headed over there, and ordered 2 to go. 30 minutes after...I'm carrying two medium trays. It felt like it weighed 10 lb. total. The garlic smell aroma was seeping through the enclosed bag... time to grub.

Even Miko liked it, no we didn't feed him crab. The crab flew in the air while Rai was breaking it apart.

Note: Garlic crab is not the recommended food to eat after heading to the club. TRUST
