David: New York City Trip with Sarah Kjelleren

Sarah Kjelleren & myself
Minus the Thanksgiving and family festivities that have been going on the last couple of days, last Friday (11/19) till Tuesday (11/23) I was in New York City with my amazingly talented friend and photographer, Sarah Kjelleren. New York City is like a second home to me and I love going in to get away from everything going on in Vermont, but this trip was a little different. Of course many of the long time TKFV readers are probably familiar with our "Sarah Kjelleren Photo of the Week" post, have seen her work, and recognize the name in this writeup, but probably do not know that she had never been to New York City before this trip. So when the opportunity came along to bring her with me I couldn't pass it up. 

Day 1:
Brad Digital
The first day wasn't the most exciting since we were just arriving after a five and a half hour drive from Vermont, but I checked into my hotel and brought Sarah to our friend Crystal Potvin's dorm where she was staying. Right after we went down to my friend Brad Digital's store, Little Brooklyn, in SoHo located on Kenmare and Elizabeth, we got dinner at this Hispanic restaurant with him and his intern, Hannah Jade. Then followed that with a few parties, but nothing too intense. Just a simple and average day.

Day 2:
Great $cott
The second day was definitely the most eventful of them all. We started off at Brad Digital's store again and Sarah had her first photo shoot with Great $cott, CEO of The Liaison Group (link is to a good article about Great $cott and the company). I did a little shopping at Brad's store and picked up two pairs of jeans (the kinds that everyone has to stop and say, "Where did you get those?"), a t-shirt, a pair of limited Tokyo edition converses, and a reversible jacket (which Brad described as a good getaway jacket in case you shoot someone in the club). 

Afterwards I ran over to meet with the owner and two other guys from NoLabel Watches, talked business, and they hooked me up with one of their watches. Definitely a huge shout out to these guys and another look at the post I put up of them and Cavi Sports last week. Loved the vision and ideas they have in that company at the moment.
Red NoLabel Watch
While I was out with NoLabel, Brad Digital took Sarah Kjelleren, Crystal Potvin, and Hannah Jade around SoHo for a bit and ran into Ricky of Dee & Ricky.

Then after my NoLabel meeting was done Sarah Kjelleren, Brad Digital, and myself headed over to a Richie Rich POPLUXE (link to an article about the runway show during New York Fashion Week) event where Sarah quickly fell in love with New York City in a heartbeat.
Richie Rich
Richie was definitely a cool and relaxed guy, and he definitely wasn't afraid to pose for pictures at all haha. To be able to talk and hangout with one of the most well known stylists and designers in the industry was a lot of fun though. Sarah even got one of the POPLUXE shirts and I joked with her about how one of her first New York City photo shoots was with Richie Rich.

Day 3:
Crystal Potvin & myself
On the third day we were all tired out from Saturday night, so we decided to take this day off for the most part and do a little bit of shopping. I showed Sarah around SoHo, my favorite place in town, a little more and stopped at places like Opening Ceremony, Oak, Uniqlo, and stopped to see some of my homies Gabriel Acevedo, of the ninGa turDels, and Frendy Lemorin at the Bape store.

Day 4:
Frendy Lemorin
On our last full day in the city, Sarah and I met up with Frendy Lemorin to do a quick photo shoot (click the link to see most the photos featured on Frendy's site). It was funny because they had been planning this photo shoot for years and it finally happened just last week. For those that don't know of Frendy either, I used to work with him on his old blog, *General-Made. This dudes like an older brother to me.
Frendy Lemorin & myself
To end the day we met up with designer/stylist Ugo Mozie, trend reporter and media personality, Daver Campbell, the owners of Nous Sommes, and designers/stylists/models Coco&Breezy for dinner in Union Square.

Once again New York City has brought me another good trip and it was great to be able to experience it with none other than Sarah Kjelleren.

Krames and 77Klash Biographies (for those that don't know them):

Record Labels:
Mad Decent, IHEARTCOMIX, Flamin' Hotz, Top Billin, Gold Whistle
77Klash: If you could imagine legendary dancehall party Passa Passa next to a LES cool kid den, around the corner from a gritty Brooklyn house party you might have a small idea of what 77Klash is. 77Klash’s credits as an artist and producer are wide and varied. Klash has worked on projects such as Turbulence’s biggest tune “Notorious”, to Klash’s own grime banger “Brooklyn Anthem” prod. by Team Shadetek, as well as MCing on the first leg of Major Lazer’s nationwide tour and Klash’s “Mad Again”, featuring reggae legend Johnny Osbourne.

Above is a skate video featuring Cavi Sport and NoLabel Watches by Arif Syed Film Design. The homie Nes from NoLabel Watches sent this over to us last night to check out.

David: Grace Potter x Path To Vermont Documentary Series (Part 1)

Like Grace Potter says, I'm proud to be from Vermont as well. And I'm extremely proud to feature a very talented Vermonters like Grace Potter on TKFV. In Part 1 of a three part documentary series of iconic Vermonters, Path to Vermont sits down with the lovely musician, Grace Potter of Grace Potter and the Nocturnals, and talks to her about Vermont, her life, and what she has done with local businesses in the community. There is also a clip from a performance held at the Burlington Waterfront in Vermont back in August of this year. Check it out below:

Stay tuned for Parts 2 and 3!

David: Frendy Lemorin x The Yellow Brick Road: Vladimir Calixte

Above is the 5th episode of Frendy Lemorin's documentary series, "The Yellow Brick Road," featuring Haitian-American Comedian/Actor Vladimir Calixte. Known for his comedic skits featuring his alter-ego 'Haitian V,' Vlad wants the world to see that his talents surpass one character. In this episode we take a sneak peak into his personal life. He discusses growing up as a Haitian American, as well as the difficulties that are faced in the entertainment industry.

I was very impressed with how this video turned out. I enjoyed the last four (which you can find on Frendy's vimeo page or personal website), but I thought this one was a major step up. I look forward to the next few episodes to come and definitely give a huge shout out to everything he is doing right now. From first meeting him at the Bape Store in New York City, to working with him over at his first blog, *General-Made, and seeing the creative work and mind of such a great individual continue to expand has truly been an inspiration to me. Frendy is like family to me and without him many of the things I am doing today probably would not be true if he did not introduce me and teach me so many things.



David: Signif x What Matters? x Drifting (Video)

Below are the visuals for Signif's song, "Drifting," off of her last EP, The Transition. The last time we talked about Signif was back in August where we introduced her to the TKFV audience and also featured her last EP. We were extremely excited to hear back from her with this new video below and her single, "What Matters?," expected to be featured on her forthcoming EP, Wizdom. Check it all out below:

Gray: Bombay by El Guincho (Video)

Sarah Kjelleren sent this over to us a few hours ago and I thought it was worthy of being posted onto TKFV even though it's about a month old.

El Guincho is Pablo Díaz-Reixa, a native of Las Palmas de Gran Canaria living in Barcelona, Spain. Also a member of Coconot, Díaz-Reixa rose to prominence with his 2007 album, Alegranza. His musical style relies heavily on the use of sampling and incorporates elements of afrobeat, dub, tropicália and rock.

Music speaks the same language everywhere. Check out the video below:

David: TKFV Introduction - 17 Year Old Mustafa Abubaker And His Book, The Surrogate

Mustafa Abubaker at a book signing
Our homie Mustafa Abubaker, a 17 year old senior at Woodward Academy in Atlanta, shot us an email the other day about his first novel, The Surrogate. Of course Gray and myself were interested the first minute we opened up the email and began reading it because we are huge supporters of young people like us chasing their dreams and making them into realities. Young musicians, directors, and in this case young authors have TKFV's support and attention 100%. Check out Mustafa's biography below:


Mustafa Abubaker penned a 108 page novel, The Surrogate, dealing with the coming-of-age of an unknowingly adopted child through the eyes of his father. Despite abundant loss, the characters exemplify perseverance, providing a very realistic approach to many of life's obstacles. Mustafa is currently hard at work promoting his novel and has his eyes set on a future that heavily involves writing.

David: Skateistan - To Live and Skate Kabul

I was just introduced to this video today and after watching it I am speechless. The work done in this video and the project they put together over seas is amazing. "Skateistan: To Live And Skate Kabul" is a beautifully shot film that follows the lives of a group of young skateboarders in Afghanistan. Operating against the backdrop of war and bleak prospects, the Skateistan charity project is the world’s first co-educational skateboarding school, where a team of international volunteers work with girls and boys between the ages of 5 and 17, an age group largely untouched by other aid programmes. Check out this amazing film below:
