Being from California, where the temperature is a consistent 75Âº (23 celsius), it sure is a kick in the balls here in Philadelphia when you're outside below freezing all day. But like a disgruntled post office clerk w/ 2 semi-automatics, the mail must go thru! And that we did, we delivered, and they responded, and the weekend here in Pennsylvania was a fun one. A big bear hug to those that came out to see us, and an even bigger yetti hug to Ron, UBIQ staff, Nick, and friends that made it happen. Here are some highlights of the UBIQ party last saturday.
Big Ron, holding it down. Thanks mang.
Our Sole Representative out in the East, Nick. You're lucky we didn't show the whole mug, it would've scared you off from coming back to this site. I'm not kidding about that, the guy's sort of facially challenged.
It being my first time in the City of Brotherly Rocky, I wanted to be that stereotypical asian tourist you see bouncing around historical landmarks. I also heard (not sure if it's a rumor) that this city is where all of USA began, with George Washington fending off Martians on the Ben Franklin bridge back in 94' and ol' Betsy Ross knitting up beanies for ?uestlove back when Rahzel and Malik B were still in The Roots.Â I just wished the weather was a bit more tropical than it really was... I was sorta itchin' to get to a double stack tour bus, but I didn't see any at all. So Pubes and I hoofed it for the most part...
Jail Pose for Liberty.
Reality really set in, when we walked out our hotel on Market and 12th, and saw a Free Mumia Rally that filled the streets for a short while. There was so much energy, both positive and somewhat angry at what had happened years ago. If you're not in tune with what I'm talking about, do some research here. It's definitely good to know what's up, especially when you thought we've moved forward after this past election. Don't be naive, there's still wacky shit going on with One Time. Be Alert!
We got a chance to head over to our buddy John Halperin and friends gallery, T & P, in South Philly. Halpies! Halpies!
Was able to stay warm with their state of the art heater they picked up from some random Amish (is that the right term??) dude, Ishmael...
Don't you worry party people... we were able to Mutate!
Snacks... I haven't seen him in a few years, and well.. I guess he's a bit koo koo now, since Barry's out in Cali. Sorry to say B Flanders, but all your Philly homies moved on.
All other photos didn't turn out so good. Blame it on the rainy snow, i guess... A big finale at the much talked about WAWA wasn't so great either.
But whatevers... back in one piece, and enlightened about the amount of heavier clothes i should start stocking up. Shit was a cold one.
Oop... and i guess it's that time again kids... More shameless plugs from your girl, Roam Diggy...
Sample Sale PART DEUX is in full effect this friday!!! More More More... new stuff!
