Anyone who knows me has heard my anti-Instagram rant. From how it is a waste of time, to how it ruins tangible social interactions, or my frustration with people that chose to scroll, instead of making eye contact during conversation. I held out for about 3 years, but after an enlightening conversation with @ryanbbabenzien and a new career opportunity (even calling people by their handles makes me uncomfortable) I am now drinking the kool aid. I am embarrassed, excited and feel like a huge hypocrite, but here I am. To follow me my handle is @salehebembury. Expect a lot of what you all have come to enjoy on this blog. I currently have an impressive 1 follower. Big things.

No matter who you are, making it to The New York Times is a big deal. It is even a bigger deal for my buddy Charnier Corey's only year old shop. They have grown so much in the last year and I am excited to see what comes to fruition next. Click here to check out the feature. Click here to check out their site. Congrats sir. Support.

Finding a genuine friend is rare. I have been lucky enough to make a few in my time, but one in particular is my buddy Duval Culpepper. I'd like to share a particular memory with you all that recently came to light. Back in our high school days we were sitting in math class and I noticed something about a girl sitting across from us. So like any high school male, I wrote a note and passed it to Duval. It's safe to assume that the note had some inappropriate words, so it's contents were highly classified. As soon as the note made it to Duval the teacher noticed it and asked him to hand it over. Instead of giving it to him, Duval looked left, looked right, and shoved it in his mouth. I have always referenced this story when discussing the meaning of friendship. However, recently Duval actually found the letter sent home to his Mom. While some of the details are off, it definitely captures the moment. Enjoy.

I recently took a trip to my buddy Gordon's creative space. Gordon was a part of the LOCAL art exhibit and you've most likely seen his work somewhere. The mark of a good artist is consistency and Gordon definitely maintains an aesthetic. His recent focus on hand painted signage is great. Check out the pics below of Gordon's studio and see more of his work here. Support
