It was December 24th on Hollis Ave. in the dark.

Two things.

One -
I was informed that Justin Bobby's (If you have to ask, allow me to sigh dramatically and send you back to the last entry) - fashion cuts are from a legitimate motorcycle club out of Los Angeles. Not the Norcal MC of the same name that I mentioned, but another existing club here in town. This "source" also told me that the colors of the patches were orange and white, not red and white as I thought.

OK, so it's hard to tell in the photo. But this still leaves the issue of bottom rocker claiming Los Angeles...still a bold ass move if you ask me, but since I'm talking to myself, it seems no one is.

This source could be wrong, he could be right, I don't know, but I feel a journalistic duty to follow up when it's called for, I'm like Woodward....or Bernstein, only instead of cracking the case on Watergate and changing the course of political history and altering the fabric of America, I'm talking about a hairdresser who rides a motorcycle on a semi-scripted MTV show.


And two -

Merry Christmas.

May you spend it with those you love and who love you.
Though it can be a stressful, sad, reflective, depressing, and lonely time of year, it is still my favorite. I like the way people treat one another.

Like the lady who didn't know how to drive today - rather than honking and swerving around her, I simply let her drive like an asshole. That's the Christmas spirit.

I'm off to Cabo with the family for some sun, surf (hopefully), fishing, and fun.
I hear you can rent Harley's, so that might be kinda bitchin', don't think the wife will hop on back, but I'm gonna try my hardest.

For those of you hanging with family who are sick and tired of that Lawrence Welk bullshit....for those of you who have the Run DMC song and the Waitresses jam but wish you had more cool holiday music to spin, I present to you........

Justin's Awesome Christmas Mixtape

(I'm too tired to post links to the songs, but you're resourceful, you can find them.
personally would go to Amazon, then you can share the files rather than having them be write protected like they do over at itunes).

Some of these are classics, some are new, some are covers, and some just remind me of Christmas and the holidays. I hope you enjoy them as much as I do, and I hope you all have a very, merry xmas.
