I know I’m a little behind here, but Recently while watching MTV Jams, I noticed the homey Gilbere Forte‘s video “Black Chukkas” came on. Here’s a screenshot from the Blackberry. Here’s another Blackberry pic, from the last time I gave Gilbere a Ceasar while I was Still at Frank’s Chop Shop. He has yet to Check your Boy (Me) at the Blind Barber. What’s up with that, Mr. Forte?! Lol Maybe next time you visit New York. (BTW, You are more than Welcome here, one of the owners is from South Jersey near Philly.) Check out one of his latest tracks, “Born In ’87″ below. Been bumping it all week at the Blind Barber. Gilbere Forte’ – Born In ’87 by gilbereforte Click the down arrow on the player to DOWNLOAD.

Calabrese x Garbstore Bag / Calabrese’s Barber Shop

I’ve heard of Garbstore a while ago, but I must admit that I’m not too familiar with the brand Calabrese. But it did remind me of a good friend, fellow batber and old coworker, Chris Calabrese.

I used to work side by side with Calabrese at Frank’s Chop Shop but now he’s on to bigger and better things. He now has his own shop, Calabrese’s Barber Shop, in his hometown Keyport, NJ. The homeys from BarberStyle featured Calabrese’s Barber Shop a few months back. Check out the post here. they also had a brief interview with Chris for their Heads Up column, here. Unfortunately, I still haven’t gotten a chance to make the troop out to Keyport to check out Chris’s Shop. :( I plan on doing a more detailed post on Calabrese’s Barber Shop in the near future but seeing this bag made me think of him (pause) and I had to Shout the Big Homey out. Good work Chris! Keep bringing fame to that Calabrese name! Oh, and the other Calabrese, you guys are alright with me, too. ;) via Selectism via BarberStyle

Last Wednesday, Terrell Owens and Alzheimer’s Association hosted a charity event at the Blind Barber to raise funds that would aid in research for the disease. Here are a couple of photos from that night.

Pras (Fugees) came through, it was kind of random but nostalgic.

It was definitely a success. View more pictures from that evening here.
