Hangin out Part 2

Hanging out and showing off another rare/hard to find vintage piece... this one is a "University Apparel" sweatshirt with blue micro stripes (that dont photograph well) and a Woolrich text on it from 1985. Looks like something they would wear up in the New England states in the mid 80's. Anyone who remembers "Murder She Wrote" or "Who's the Boss" it looks like something on those shows. Also proud to rock a MOXIE...which is a ooooolllldddd drink that is popular in the New England states as well. Its very hard to find outside of those states but guess who found a bottle at a small candy store!

Greek Acres is the place to be!

"Greek Acres is the place to be"!
at a gig for an army industrial video rocking one of JAY-Z brands denim shorts with matching suspenders that seemed perfect to wear to "Green Acres"!!! But at the same time had that early 90's TLC vibe (their 1st album). Keep in mind the pics were taken after being up all night and slightly under the weather...

Chris Kanakis assistant for team building event

Chris Kanakis has a fairly good amount of experience working as an assistant at team building/bonding events. Since this team building Charity Bike Building event was only 2 days after the 4th of July and the name of the company executing the event for their client was called "Team Building USA"... he brought his American Patriotic jeans to take photos wearing with during lunch! Along with that is a very rare vintage "Mens by HUK-A-POO" shirt from 1980 worn because the look of the shirt seemed perfect for the up scale Bel Air Country Club where the event was held at. 
Although no pics of him working the event were taken... he was able to get these few pics having some fun during down time at the end of the event to add to his portfolio/resume as proof of works. And YES.. he DID get a lot of compliments from the staff and members of the country club on his outfit!!!

Chris Kanakis #WinningDuh


Rare pics of Chris Kanakis back in the day winning awards for work done in both sales AND entertainment categories. No matter what the job/gig is ... Kanakis got this!

Chris Kanakis at ceremony WINNING his second award for #1 salesman on his shift at MCIWorldcom in 2001. Out of the 2 years he was employed at MCIWorldcom... there were 4 "clubs" awards and he was #1 for 2 of them!

Chris Kanakis in 1999 WINNING his 1st of 2 awards while on WSCN (Warren Student Communication Network). This was the "most creative new anchor" award.

Chris Kanakis having fun at an old time photo studio on Hollywood Boulevard while on a trip to Hollywood, California in 1999. Although he made the decision to go back home...finish high school and go to college... he promised Hollywood he'd be back one day when the time was right. This is the ONLY photo that made it back with him from his trip. He unfortunately left his camera behind leaving mostly nothing but memories and destinies to be determined. Only time will tell if his promise to the City of Dreams will ever be fulfilled.

Arm day at the gym in a cool 90's tshirt(s) parts 1-3

Arm day at the gym in a cool 90's tshirt(s) parts 1-3
parts 1-3 combined (now categorized by muscle).  If youtube video doesn't load well try the vidme link. Sometimes vidme loads/looks better on mobile devices. 

The purpose of these videos is to show the world to never give up the strive for positivity, fun and well being. Stay active doing what you love and when possible combine them. If you like going to the gym and you like the late 80's/early 90's then... lift vintage, lol

Kanakism: "Just because someone does not have low self esteem doesn't mean they think they are "perfect"...always give someone a chance before you judge otherwise you become a jaded old fool, who done forgot that "golden rule"

Chris Kanakis on arm day in vintage Gitano Jeans brand stonewashed pants circa 1988/89
