I grew up in the 80s and 90s when street culture was a major player in the mainstream. As a kid and teenager then, music played a big role in my life and along with that, the things that usually came along with it, both the good and bad. Pop music those days mainly revolved around hiphop, hardcore rap, and punk rock. Admittedly, ideals were a little distorted. Focus was more on gangs, mosh pits, hanging out and wreaking havoc. A true slacker generation with little aspirations but hey, it was a fun time to be young. And as shallow as our generation may seem, there was a strong underlying passion to all our seemingly pointless romps around the city. We thrived on self-expression and we found our outlet in many ways. We lived, worked and moved as an anti-establishment pack. "Sticking it up to the man" at every opportunity possible. Selling out was not an option. We relied on ourselves and each other and we drew our inspiration from our numerous experiences on the "street".
This is the same attitude and philosophy that draws the "Trilogy" crowd together like a moth to a flame and it's opening yesterday afternoon in Glorietta 3 was a true testament to that. Not being biased, it was the best and most interesting store launch I have ever attended. It was not so much the festivities, although the free-flowing beers from all over the world + old school hip hop music in the background added a lot to the b-boy vibe, it was the eclectic mix of creative people all under the same roof sharing the same interests and beliefs that I found truly titillating.
