Loud Music

One day, when we FINALLY update the Family, Media, and Repped sections of our website, you'll be seeing more of these guys.

We like to listen to loud music, as you can tell. I swear, I will update those sections soon. I know I've been saying that for months now, but I really mean it! Keep checking back for some projects in the near future with these fine gentlemen. Updates coming soon!

Rest In Peace

It has been a very tragic week for people who are accustomed to being in the public eye. It reminds you that life is so fragile and can easily be taken away, without warning. Death is inevitable and it's always very humbling to find out that the people you see on TV and in movies are still human just like us. I'd like to take this time to honor and remember, not only these fine people, but all the loved ones we've ever lost. May they find rest.

I entered the Kogi BBQ T-Shirt Design Contest for fun and ended up getting chosen as one of the finalists! If you could spare a minute out of your busy day, PLEASE vote for me - Vincent Apostol - I would appreciate it very much!

I went with a very simple, iconic design that anyone can wear and show love for the Kogi BBQ brand. Sometimes the most minimal designs are the most effective and straightforward.

So CLICK HERE and vote for me (Vincent Apostol)! Thanks!

Stay Gold. And Purple.

I know some of you might be getting sick of it, so today will be our final day to honor and celebrate our beloved Los Angeles Lakers' championship victory. Before I get to that though, check out what our friend Juan got us earlier this week.

Apparently, A.C. Green was at a local Dick's Sporting Goods store signing autographs. Juan happened to randomly walk in and ended up getting some copies for all of us, including one made out to LOUD& OBNOXIOUS! Thanks Juan!

Anyway, Wednesday was the Laker parade and celebration rally at the Staples Center and Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum. Most of us had never been to one of these before so we decided to test our luck, get up early, and try to get some good seats at the Coliseum. Little did we know that 100,000 other Laker fans were thinking the same exact thing.

I've never actually been a part of a group of people this large before in my life, so this was definitely quite the experience for me. My favorite part was when Kobe was telling everyone about the chant that they did all season long, "1, 2, 3, RING!" He eventually got the crowd to do it. Watch the video and go to the 1:40 mark. Chills up and down my spine.

I tried to make a panoramic out of some of the photos I took to give you an idea of the magnitude of this event. It's my first time, so don't laugh. Click on the image to see the full size.

What a great day! I'll remember this one forever.

Keep the Good Times Rollin'

Looks like it's going to be a Laker celebration all week long on the L&O blog! I don't care, I'm so proud of this team. They took so much scrutiny and hate throughout the past few seasons and kept pushing onward towards the ultimate goal. Never in my life have I ever felt so connected to a sports team. Let's keep it going!

We spent our Sunday at Jase's house to watch the Lakers close out the series. Even Travis came out to rage! What a freakin' cutiepie. Can't wait to snap a photo of him modeling his L&O onesies.

You know we had to grub like champs. Pun intended! My plate featured flame-broiled kielbasa sausage, chopped cilantro and tomato, and home-made garlic friend rice.

Mike and Matt S. The Wingmen doing their thing.

The Wingmen. Wing service. Small ideas, big dreams. Sounds awfully familiar. Anyway, Keep an eye out for these guys!

And now, some snapshots of the glorious outcome. Oh, how sweet it is.

Anyone going to the parade/celebration ceremonies tomorrow? Hit us up!

Need I say more?

Congratulations to the Los Angeles Lakers. 2009 NBA Champions! Congrats to Kobe Bryant for his 4th ring and Finals MVP award. And of course, congrats to Phil Jackson for his 10TH NBA Championship ring as a head coach. The man is a genius and has the hardware to prove it. (How dope is that "X" hat he's wearing!)

Sorry to all of you who own a "BEAT LA" t-shirt for they are now officially useless. It's ok, we forgive you. If you'd like, we've got some "Be LA" t-shirts just for you!

Head over to Karmaloop and grab one NOW before they're gone! We printed very limited quantities for each colorway so don't sleep!

And of course, don't forget about SUMMER 09! Just dropped on our ONLINE SHOP as well as Karmaloop. Scroll down for more info on SUMMER 09!

Have a fantastic Monday!
