The New Zealand Wrapup

Yes Yes, healing When I went to New Zealand , diagnosis I definitely felt like a king for a day, thanks to the good folk at adidas, Show Room 22, and Frank and Ivy Liew of Qubic (http://www.qubicstore.com/) and quarters.

From the moment I got off the plane the new zealand Hospitality was imminent , with a nice hand written welcome note and a few gifts ,including the local Rugby Team ALL BLACKS jersey and a boxset of New Zealand Music Artist hits, which I’ve gladly added to my music collection.


i got to do it all it seemed, from Bungy Jumping, to Interviews, to good eats, to site seeing and Party Rocking…







It was ALL captured by NICELY here by frank liew and qubic, directed by Sean Wallace. Another “Day in the Life” type video, with a lot more in depth interviewing and a really good look at what its like for me on the road….

In fact, I had 2 GROUPS of cameras following me, as I made the LATE NIGHT NEWS on TVNZ in their showbiz section…

For those planning a Next GREAT Trip, I would highly suggest New Zealand…

Their Humor is amazin – as we all know from FLIGHT of the Concords and their bungy jumping – look at how their bathrooms look, and their “waiver sheet” , which they call a “toe tag”. HILARIOUS.



The food is pretty dang tasty – they even have REAL ACAI, like the stuff down in Brazil, not that American Crap. This is the only other place I’ve seen this stuff served Proper.They got proper meat pies (pause) and of course there is Burger Fuel, which I think gives In & Out a run for their money as far as Burgers go…



They got great stores like Qubic and Quarters for your street wear needs –



They even got Benecio Del Toro Selling ICe cream out there. COME ON. How crazy is that.


They got great local artists like David Dallas holding it down over there ON a global scale , as his work has been blogged up on Kanye Wests site.


SHOOT – I even ran into STEVE AOKI , our first meeting , A NY and LA AUCKLAND Connection –


As you can imagine, I can’t wait until I get to hit the other side of the world again… and I suggest that y’all make New Zealand a Destination on YOUR world tour …

Until the next time ;)
