Last week was tradeshow week for us Europians. All the main tradeshows were taking place in Berlin. We found ourselves at the Bright show, which had last summer moved from Frankfurt to Berlin. In Frankfurt the show was held in an old police station and to keep the tradition going in Berlin they took over the old Stasi headquarters. If you haven't heard about the Stasi, let me tell you they weren't the friendliest bunch. Anyway OBEY was present all thanks to the OBEY Germany team. Super gemacht Freunden!
Roams and Steve T. were setting up the installation. Or let's just say Steve T. did all the work.
No matter how hard we tried to make it all look good. We couldn't outdo the guys over at the HUF/Skate Mental Booth.
OBEY Germany chief Cem might look tough, but he's a real sweetheart.
My good friends Rufus Exton is the official Bright photographer, at least that's what he tells me.
Thanks to the Very Special Ben-G crew, the HUF dirtbag crew and the Skate Mental retard crew for letting me crash at the appartment.
It was someone's birthday too, but he didn't want everyone to know. All I can say he has been a pro skater for nearly 20 years, he has an apparel and footwear brand and a store on Fairfax.
Randomly ran into J. Christ at a gas station off the autobahn.
Steve T. couldn't believe it.
Thanks to everyone that came by. And for the people who didn't, you missed out.
