The $tatus Faction is excited to release one final print before we close out 2009.
This print was exceptionally exciting since many hands worked together to build it.
You might remember the original development of the snake logo here.
And you might remember some of the background images from Third1’s work in the Screen Fiends show- found here.
Excuse the terrible photography- we’ll upload better photos for the online store.
Pencil signed and numbered
This print will be available in our online store HERE.

Tuesday rolled thru the Snoop Dogg 10th Album “Malice In Wonderland” Record Release Party.
Party was epic. Not shittin’ I caught the Doggfather himself coming off the red carpet. I put my camera away and pressed the flesh with the D-O-DOUBLE-G.
We thought it couldn’t get an iller when out comes QUIK to perform TONITE, then Pharrell Williams did a couple tracks, followed by The Game to wrap it up. Everyone was in the building…. Travis Barker on drums, The Hustle Boys, Mike Epps did a verse for Game, Butch Cassidy, The Snoopadelics, Warren G, Nate Dogg, Lamar Odom, Cypress Hill, Mr. Cartoon, some dude from DTA’s mother, shit was craze!!!!!
Check this video out of Snoop and Game performing Gin and Juice:
Then thursdy on a very opposite but equally respected tip- MORRISSEY at the Gibson in Universal City. Dude can still perform- sounded great- no weird shit popped off- fairly subdued audience…
had a good time. And yes Morrissey did several Smiths songs, included the one I taped below:
Saturday night stopped by the Hit+Run Repeat Offender party @ the Echoplex.
Lots of t-shirts presses going that night, and Zackey Force Funk performed with this crazy dude CRIME from Texas I think…. Shit sounds like electro metal with mosh dance floor appeal…. Hard to explain- but very interesting. Check this dude out- nucka looks like a shaved Arab Parrot with that crazy eye!
EPIC WEEK IN MUSIC FOR $TATUS FACTION
Working my ass off! I wish that I could show but it’s not all done yet… thanks to posting them big ass water towers!!! them shits are crazy as fuck/fun to climb….here is a few shot from a freeway roller/piece!
Lots on the way!!! From the heart of the dirty south!!!
2010 will have somecrazyshitcrackin’ (all one word)
FROM JAKE MASON:
I’ve been a fan of TLG after seeing so much of his graffiti spread over L.A., been exceptionally excited by his street collaborations with Augor.
Zach mailed me this TLG pencil and watercolor painting from the show. Good looking out Zach- I got some goods coming back at you!
If you hold the painting at a certain angle you can see a hidden message written in pencil over the black water color. I love the 100% filth of TLG!
THANKS ZACHER! This is gonna hang dope next to the mini Augor painting I got from the Upper Playground gallery!

It’s all about the shoes, money! The moment you all have been waiting for is just around the corner. The City Championships are scheduled for Sunday December 13th on the roof of The Montalban Theater in Hollywood at 2pm. The top 8 teams from the previous seasons of Westwood, Hollywood, West Hollywood, and Silverlake will compete with a trophy and custom Nike sneakers on the line.
We are fielding a team with the roster that competed in the previous season. If we are unable to field a full roster (which i assume we will) subs who have not played on an LA Dodgeball Society team in the last year may be allowed per approval. Players on multiple qualified teams may compete on as many teams they wish.
Cost per player is $5. Stay tuned for further details.
After party to follow at the Hollywood Cantina.

Smashed one of my favorite sushi joints last night with the blood brother.
This place does not fuck around- forget about trying to get some roll with spicy tuna or some shit—
they will fuckin cut you with a samurai sword for trying.
This place is top grade sushi cuts- and prices to match-
expect about $50/person.
My three other top sushi restaurants include:
1. Katsuya (played but always reliable)
2. Sushi WA
3. Sushi Sasabune
So it’s no secret that I like rap… a lot… This song is off 50 cent’s new album and it’s ill! I could listen to this song over and over, but this video ruined it for me. Not all the way but almost.
I give his new album a 7 out of 10 its damn good… I’m a little nervous about his directorial debut, especially if it’s anywhere near this video but I heard that he had a “real” director on hand helping him out… needed indeed…
