No introduction necessary. If you are in New York next weekend, be here.
I just realized that these most recent updates make it seem like I’ve been on permanent vacation for the past few months. Not the case. In fact, that couldn’t be farther from the truth… it’s just no fun to blog about sitting in front of a computer monitor working until 2am every night eating cereal straight from the box.
That said, here’s another round of photos from where I’m imagining myself right now-
Today Anthony and I braved hundred degree temperatures and an hour long detour into Pennsylvania to shoot a collection of custom hot-rods built by the gentlemen over at Geils Automotive in Milford New Jersey.
Most of their outside work starts out like this– a client will usually bring in three beat up old cars and the Geils team will pool together all the working parts to turn these thousand pound piles of rust into 700 horsepower speed demons.
This one is from 1929.
Every one of these cars came with half a dozen stories. This one was complete with a tale about getting shot at while speeding down 11th avenue in Manhattan in the mid 70’s.
I don’t know anything about cars but this one can go from 0-170 mph in about 8 seconds.
This bad boy was my personal favorite. Complete with a full tank of NOS right in the trunk.

Here’s some pictures from a half dozen disposable cameras that I’ve kept in my Weekender bag this summer. Most of the time the cameras get damaged with water or sand, light leaks into the film, and the auto focus has a mind of it’s own, but the shots all remind me of summer camp, fun times, and how important it is to actually smile for a picture occasionally.
Presenting the first round of photos from the Looseworld x Reason pool party this weekend at The Bentley Hotel. Next saturday is the final installment, so if you see these photos and feel like you’re missing out, check the Looseworld website for details and RSVP info.

What a cute couple they make together, right?! Those are the Reason Commanders sunglasses in Matte Black on the left and in Polished Tortoise on the right. Oh? The people? Yea I guess Price and Aubrey are pretty darn adorable too.
Party was crackin’ all day. Open bar, BBQ, 22 foot water slide, blasting sound system, tons of giveaways, pretty much the epitome of what a perfect pool party should be.
I posted a picture of Augie wearing this same t-shirt last week.
Nick J. Reason. Swag.
Dane and Brian didn’t hesitate in taking full advantage of the Reason freebies.
Natalie and Anne curate the live art show that went on during the event.

Thank you again to Skyler, Dane, all the sponsors, and the entire Looseworld family for one of the most epic parties of the summer! We’ll be back soon, STAY LOOSE!
I know we’re already in the thick of summer, but it’s never too late for a quality lookbook from your favorite brand, right?
Presenting our official Reason Clothing 2011 Spring/Summer lookbook.
This weekend we’re heading out to the Bentley Hotel in Southampton for the second installment of Looseworld’s ongoing month long pool party. Jon D-d-d-d-deejay-PRICE will be proving the music, Nick J. will be manning a small Reason pop-up shop, and I’ll be doing my best to soak everyone with in the vicinity of the pool my trademark cannon ball.
There will also be a live performance from The KickDrums, an art installation curated by Natalie Trainor and Anne Huntington, and an open bar curtsey of Grey Goose and Bombay Sapphire. If you’re in the area, come check it out.
Fourth of July. Georgica Mondays. East Hampton. Good vibes. Good people. America. Was that a haiku?
