#153: Mark Hunter (The Cobrasnake)
The CobraSnake drops in to tell us about “Wet” Cupping, COSTCO, The Importance of Family, and more.
Cool people like cool things, which is why we asked cool person Mark Hunter to share some recommendations on Perfectly Imperfect.
Mark Hunter’s distinct style of photography helped define the look of hipster-glam and “indie sleaze”. Since the mid-2000s he’s captured parties all over the world and photographed icons such Kanye West, Steve Aoki, Sky Ferreira, Katy Perry, and Lindsay Lohan. And recently he’s been documenting the revival of indie sleaze by working with those embracing it such as Meg Superstar Princess, Destiny Strudwick, and Coco Campbell. He’s got a Rizzoli coffee table book dropping in May 2022 that I can’t wait for. Lucky for us, Mark is here to tell us what he’s been into.
Without further ado
🥾 ⛰️ Hiking with me in Hollywood
I'm obsessed with hiking .. i try to go 5-7 times a week .. its a great way to be outside and connect with yourself and nature.. I love challenging myself and inspiring others to do the same.. From runyon canyon, griffith park , wisdom tree and beyond LA is filled with amazing mountains to climb .. don’t be shy.. DM me and lets go hiking.
My buddy @babyj.wav turned me on to this Los Angeles based “power disco” band..
I’ve been listening to them on repeat.. The music is perfect for cleaning your house , doing homework , dancing at 4am , eating breakfast … i can listen to COBRA MAN 24/7.
💧 🥤 “Wet” cupping…
Most people have some sort of pain.. I had terrible lower back pain , sciatica , ect…
I tried everything to fix my problems. Acupuncture , chiropractor , voodoo ect… nothing really worked … until i found “wet” cupping. Most people know what cupping is .. but “wet” cupping involves lots of needles and blood . this ancient technique relieves your pain almost instantly …i can’t recommend an alternative therapy more .. google it and see if you can find someone in your city .. i have the best guy in LA ,. DM for details.
🚰 Drinking water
I force myself to drink as much water as possible on the daily.. I get really sad if my pee is anything but clear … the benefits are immense.. Just make sure you have access to a bathroom .. sucks to hold your pee . if you find it hard to drink water i suggest getting a nalgene or similar 32oz bottle and refill it all day long .. saves money and the environment instead of buying plastic bottles.
In my opinion there's nothing better than costco.. From the food court to the 24 rolls of toilet paper .. You can’t go wrong at Costco; they have something for everyone.. It’s a perfect place to stock up on organic groceries for meal prep , score a cozy KIRKLAND brand crew neck , an endless supply of TIDE PODS ( yummy ) and whatever else you might find in there.
👪 👩👩👧👧 👨👩👧 Family
I recommend talking / seeing your family as much as possible.. taken photos videos even when you don't want to .. its a crazy world out there so it's important to treasure those precious moments with the people we love.
