Gabe Leonard


I bought my first piece of art yesterday.
I was at the Abbot Kinney Street Fair and fell in love with a bunch of paintings by Gabe Leonard. Super talented and really only paints bad ass things. Pirates, mobsters and of course cowboys is the majority of his work, so I am an official fan. The one below "Dead Man's Hand" was the one that I bought, but I really feel that every thing he's done is worth checking out.

Hulk Hogan in the 1990's


Hulk Hogan was like an idol in the 90's.
I was an avid fan of wrestling, but I loved his movies. Suburban Commando has to be up there with Encino Man as "wow, I cant believe they made movies like this...and what happened to them?" He always embellished his tough guy-ness and...I don't know. That shit is still hilarious to me.I just did a quick search to show some photos and was amazed and taken back to my child hood.

I couldn't forget Thunder in Paradise, but he did three of those fucking films. Just brilliant. This is what i like to remember instead of his black dyed beard, his divorce, his Van Diesel son and semi hot daughter that he rubs down. :/
