Hot off the printing presses.....We are proud to support the Haring Foundation and the AIDS Walk New York this year. We printed a limited run of OBEY T shirtsÂ with Shepard's illustration of Keith Haring, based on the portrait taken by Patrick McMullan. The shirt is only available to those who join the Keith Haring Foundation AIDS Walk team, donate $50.00 or more and turn out to walk through Central Park on May 16th with the team. Join, donate, pop those sneaks on and don the crisp new T..........http://tiny.cc/KHFaidswalk2010
If you're in LA, make sure to go to the first show at the new Project Space this Thursday night. Parra is the first artist to show at the gallery. A couple things to know about Parra are that he's Dutch, he thinks his country needs better BBQ chicken and this show is all in black and white. He just finished up the large installs last night and this show should not disappoint. Be there or be square.

Made it back to Black Star Canyon on Sunday to continue the search for Orange County's hidden gem. Here are some photos from our adventure.
*We posted this awhile back but figured it'd be worth reposting as Nosaj started blogging today. Also, we'll be releasing NOSAJ THING X OBEY Shirts on Wednesday. These will be sold exclusively at NOSAJ THING shows and at OBEY Clothing.
I'd like to introduce another guest writer for our News Section, Mr. Jason Chung a.k.a.Â NOSAJ THING. He's a good friend of ours, here in the office and he's gracious enough to let us follow him throughout his Europe and U.S. tour for the next coming months.
Chris (Free The Robots), first put me onto Nosaj's music a while back, around the time whenÂ Low End Theory ClubÂ was just starting in L.A. After meeting and getting to know him throughout the years, I can say he's one of the most humble talents coming up from and contributing to the now established, Los Angeles Beat Scene.
In 2008, we featured Nosaj Thing along withÂ Diplo,Â Flying Lotus, and our very own, DJ Diabetic (Shep Shep) at aÂ South by Southwestshowcase, celebrating the launch ofÂ The Gaslamp Killer'sÂ I Spit On Your GraveÂ box set under OBEY Records.
In 2009, Nosaj Thing released the albumÂ DriftÂ onÂ Alpha Pup RecordsÂ and gained global acclaim and continues to seed his sound and visual live shows around the world.Â Click hereÂ to buy his music from iTunes.
Be sure to stay tuned for upcoming projects on OBEY Records. For more info on Nosaj Thing, click on the links below:

Trekked through Black Star Canyon last weekend in hopes of finding the legendary 80 ft double waterfall I read about in the OC Register a couple weeks back... never found it. Oh well, maybe next Sunday
This last photo is for you Jon..
A few weeks ago, a few of the boys at the office had asked the OBEY staff if they wanted to join an indoor soccer league that plays every Thursday evening. Game times vary every week, some being at 8pm and some at 3am, where low lifes try to re-live their dream of being a sports star. Unfortunately, only one person said yes, so we had our human resource department hand select the one's who've been written-up due to no shows at work, and especially those needing to shave off some of that extra gut for insurance purposes. We proudly present The OBEY Fiend FÃºtbol Club!
Adam drinks his V8 with a lil purple lean.
Hugo Hulk and Toners... wishing they lotioned their ashy-ass knees before the match.
Our head captain, Toothless Lozano trying to whistle to the bacon wrapped hot dog vendor.
Underbite McItow, just realizing the ball's behind him.
Toners, grabbing his imaginary girlfriend's chesticles.
Timmy and Kilzer are too occupied playing with each other, than actually trying to play against the other team.
Then there's Hippert Lisp 69, claiming his limp wrist and awkward run helps him with his aerodynamics.
I hope you "kick it" like Tai Bo, we'll have more photos as the season unwinds.
Mike and Erin, the men's and women's designers headed over to Hong Kong to work on the Spring 11 gear. Yeah, clothing companies work that far in advance or even further. What can I say, when they get there they politic. In this case with the Subcrew contingent.
Posse in Effect! Shouts out to Frankie, Sam Lee and Kobe. Check out their blog SUBCREW.
Since the Runaways movie is just about out, I figured this is a good week to talk Runaways. (And Kim Fowley, who looks to be getting the Frankenstein-conquers-the-world film treatment he's so far been denied.) So I went digging in the L.A. RECORD Archives of Inspiration and after clawing through big dirty stacks of Creem, Kicks, Fusion and Changes I found this 1976 issue of Bomp! that has a big feature on the Runaways as they were just starting outâ€”including a review of them live in Garden Grove!
