No Matter Where You Are http://fkn-famous.com/2014/10/no-matter-where-you-are/ http://fkn-famous.com/2014/10/no-matter-where-you-are/#comments Tue, 21 Oct 2014 07:12:46 +0000 http://fkn-famous.com/?p=61741 Happy Tuesday everyone, hope your week is off to a great start! Today we’ve got a awesome new music video from the very talented “Us The Duo”. Here is the video premiere to their latest smash hit song “No Matter Where You Are”. Turn your speakers up and enjoy this awesome new music video!

I will stand by you
Even when we fall
I will be the rock, that holds you up
and lifts you high so you stand tall

I won’t let you go
No one can take your place
a couple fights & lonely nights
Don’t make it right to let it go to waste

I won’t let you fall
I won’t let you go
No matter where you are
No matter where you are, I’ll be there

I will hold on to
Everything we’ve got
A quitter, a regretter, and forgetter is
Everything I’m not

I’ll take care of you
and love you just because
You and I are better than forever
Nothing can stop us

I won’t let you fall
I won’t let you go
No matter where you are
No matter where you are, I’ll be there

We can be the generation
Who learns how to love
Mistakes & empty promises
Will never be enough
To tear apart the giant hearts
that beat inside us now
Let’s conquer the percentages
and rise above the crowd

I won’t let you fall
I won’t let you go
No matter where you are
No matter where you are, I’ll be there

No matter where you are
No matter where you are I’ll be [x2]

I’ll be there [x2]

Inspired by the city and this myth, retailer and label Opening Ceremony created a Fall/Winter 2014 collection around the central motif of hands, incorporating them over a wide variety of its stylish, forward-thinking garments. Standouts from the range include pieces like the Dimensional Fingerprint Front Zip Pullover Jacket — an all-over fingerprint pullover with a zipper detail that can be done up for a pleat in the front, or left unzipped for an oversized silhouette — the cotton fleece Zipper Gusset T-Shirt in orange, Wool Large Front Zip Pullover Jacket and Dimensional Fingerprint Classic OC Varsity Jacket. Rounding out the collection, meanwhile, are more classic, wearable designs like the logo-embroidered tees and hoodies, along with both casual and formal trousers.

FKN Exclusive – EL BBQ http://fkn-famous.com/2014/10/fkn-exclusive-el-bbq/ http://fkn-famous.com/2014/10/fkn-exclusive-el-bbq/#comments Mon, 20 Oct 2014 07:16:01 +0000 http://fkn-famous.com/?p=61661 Every week we love to introduce you to some new talented individuals. Well today to we’ve got a awesome interview with our good friend Vu with his 1992 Honda Shadow VLX called “EL BBQ”. Check out this FKN Exclusive with Vu and see how he started out this build. This is definitely an exclusive your don’t want to miss!

Bike Year/Make/Model: 1992 Honda Shadow VLX
Car Color: Matte Black

Current Modifications:

- Custom clip on bars, bronze grips, cleaned up handlebars with custom start button (removed kill switch controls and headlight controls), highlight switch on headlight housing, custom exhaust with titanium heat wraps, Hard tail strut with hard tail rear frame, wire tuck, custom “oil tank” used to hide all the wires for wire tuck, lowered front shocks, suicide shifter with brass knuckle shift knob, TJ Bruttal brass shifter peg, Dime city velocity stacks, 145 main jets, Solo seat with copper seat springs, digital volt meter

Future Modifications:

- More brass accents (bolts) , Springer front end

So tell us a little bit about yourself.

- My name is Vu Phan currently residing in San Jose. Im a production manager at a logistics company by day…batman at night! I also am the co-founder of V2 Productions and part time grease monkey. I live for the thrill of adventure. Stealing this quote from the infamous Cary.. I’m a jack of all trades, master of none.

What sparked your interest in motorcycles.

- Ive always had an interest in motorcycles even before I could afford one. After I graduated, I picked up my first bike, an 06 cbr600rr. I fell in love instantly. I loved the freedom that came with it. Anywhere I wanted to go, I felt like I could go. Many of my friends had motorcycles so we would all cruise the mountains every weekend. The feeling is something you cant describe. They say 85% of pilots ride a motorcycle. Jet pilots say riding a motorcycle is the next best thing to flying. That’s how it feels like. When you ride on a beautiful road, you can’t help but smile. You feel so free, like nothing in the world is holding you back. Just imagine being on a roller coaster but without all the ups and downs, just speed and the wind in your face. Every worry you had left when you pulled the throttle.

How did you come about owning the motorcycle you have now?

- I was at a carshow and my friend came by with a few of his buddies. They were all on bobbers and I had never seen one before. The style was a perfect match to my taste and I asked him about it. I later picked one up with the help of him and the other guys from San Jose bobbers aka LnSpltBlvd aka Legion Cycles. We chopped, welded, and duct taped the bike to what other know now as EL BBQ.

What inspired you to modify your motorcycle?

- If you look at a stock Honda shadow, it’s pretty hideous… Every build starts off similar (chopped frame, rejet, velocity stacks etc..) but all the details are up to you. You get to add you own personal style and I didn’t want just any bobber, I wanted to build the bike of my dreams with a small budget. That’s the best part about this lifestyle. Not any two bikes are the same.

Are there any difficulties you run into owning a motorcycle like yours?

- All the time.. it wouldn’t be a bobber if it was worry free. My bobber has no issues…said no one ever!! You really got to know what you’re doing and what each part of what’s left of the bike does. With a fully rigid frame, nuts and bolts are going to get loose from all the vibration. Its good to have friends in the hobby though, they have saved me one too many times but its all part of the culture. All of our bikes are garage built and never touched a shops floor. You learn along the way, that’s how I learned. There’s nothing better than brotherhood, beer, and bikes.

What is your dream motorcycle and why?

- I have many dream motorcycles from a ducati monster to a Harley knucklehead. My dream motorcycle is the one that gets me through the twisties and out the other end.

Aside from motorcycle what else do you like to do?

- I work full time as a production manager at a logistics company..boring I know! But by night! I am the co founder of V2 productions. Check us out on Instagram @v2productions. We are cinematographers and we cover events, birthdays, music videos..whatever you want us to film, we’ll film! I also like to mess around with cars, build random stuff, ride dirt bikes..too many things to list. As my good friend Cary once described himself as, Jack of all trades, master of none.

What if you woke up in a new Bugatti?

- Id ask my drug dealer…what the hell did I just take?!?!?! Haha jk! I would sell it. There are so many things I can do with the money than drive that car a few times. Travel, buy all of my dream cars and motorcycles, take over the world.. you know, the normal things. Im a simple man. My gf seems to disagree on that last part haha.

How did you hear about FKN Famous, and what do you think of us?

- Jerry is a good friend of mine so I always support everything he does. Am I FKN FAMOUS yet?!?!?!?

Any last shout outs?

- Shout out to my mom for giving birth to me, to the person who invented motorcycles, all the guys in SJBOBBERS, LnSpltBlvd, Legion Cycles, and of course, my gf who supports me in all my craziness.

Holding things down in the fashion industry we’ve got an awesome brand from California by the name of PoisexCollective. Now relax as we get to know PoisexCollective a little more and how they started out in the industry. Also get a closer look at some of their latest products!

Clothing line name: PoisexCollective
City/State: Los Angeles,CA
Established date: 10/12
Website: www.poisecollective.com

Price range for clothing: $25-$50
Where to buy your clothing: www.poisecollective.com

So tell us about your brand?

- PoisexCollective is Luxury streetwear inspired by street culture, high-end fashion & vintage eras with establishment in MMXII (2012) & launch date in MMXIII (2013), it’s message is to spread full awareness of living a balanced lifestyle within one self thus the name (Poise) the purpose is to create a lifestyle brand with a wide variety of items thus the name (collective) with high intentions of commercially succeeding & also prospering within the industry.

How did you come up with the name?

- When my decision of building a streetwear company was made I knew that I wanted the company to represent something big something that not only will stand out but also display positivity, after weeks of excessive research and trying to brand the company through a random search via thesaurus.com in bold letters was the word “Poise” I immediately was attracted and looked up it’s history ,Poise-graceful & elegant bearing in a person/Balance, equilibrium it’s definition were all qualities that awakened me both on a personal level & also kicked a flame of inspiration in me to want to spread this to the world, after it’s discovery I knew I had to make additions to the name to better identify that it is a company or a collection of clothing items in which “collective” was born, the “X” in between its name was a creative decision to enhance our street style ,plus it looked Dope thus the name PoisexCollective.

What were you doing before launching your brand?

- Working a 9-5 trying to find myself.

When did you begin thinking about launching your own clothing brand?

- About the age of 19 after asking myself what I was going to do for the rest of my life.

What best describes your line & who is it targeted to?

- The streetwear industry like any other has it sub genres it has it’s hip-hop, skater even retro brands which are all great in my opinion there’s room for all yet PoisexCollective is none of those we are for those that truly love fashion those who have taste & style and really are what they wear where, those that like the high end as much as the street look ,in overall those trying to become somebody thus our saying “We are for those aiming to succeed” .

What influenced you to start this line?

- I was always an artistic person , but it wasn’t until I made the decision of building my own company that I was inspired to put my art & designs in to work in other words clothing, it was written for me.

How is your brand different from others out there?

- Originality.

Are there any challenges you run into while running a business?

- Of course, there has to be but I’m grateful to pick up from them rather than fail.

What ways did you find promoting your brand worked?

- Creating a Large Online presence everything is online now, use it.

Are there any future plans for your line?

- Plenty, I wish to create a lifestyle company along with great staff & carry worldwide flagship stores, spreading our message & items on an international level.

How did you hear about FKN Famous & what do you think of us?

- I looked the mag up via instagram & quickly was intrigued by it’s name “FKN Famous” though it was real cool and shortly after I visited the line and really liked the genres that were being targeted from (Women, Fashion, Music, Automotive)thought it would be a great fit for PXC, the rest is history.

Any last shout outs?

- Yes,S/O to Jerry & staff for the opportunity, keep steady!

Vans WMNS – Holiday 2014 http://fkn-famous.com/2014/10/vans-wmns-holiday-2014/ http://fkn-famous.com/2014/10/vans-wmns-holiday-2014/#comments Mon, 20 Oct 2014 07:08:40 +0000 http://fkn-famous.com/?p=61626 This just in from the folks over at Vans. Recently Van’s introduced us to their new 2014 Holiday Women’s Collection. Join us as we take a closer look at their newest lookbook which was shot in San Francisco!

To commemorate the upcoming holiday season Vans took to the streets of San Francisco on a whirlwind city tour with photographer and rock royalty, Clara Balzary to document the adventure. From the top of Russian Hill through China Town and back, the only mission was finding the highest hills and best views city views wearing our favorite pieces from the new season. We piled on and layered up all of our favorite styles by pairing the Shrine Crew with the velvet Sunstreaker Skirt and tied the Rabble Flannel around the waist. We kept it cool in the fleece-lined Manor Parka atop the ultra-comfy Deluxe Sweatpants and danced it out in the abstract leopard San Juan Woven. We found killer city views in our Danielle Denim Jacket paired with a matching muted floral hoodie and Realm Backpack. No city adventure is complete without a trusty pair of Vans leather Sk8-Hi Slims. The Vans Women’s Collection is available to shop in-stores and online now at Vans.com/women-lookbook. via – vans
