Something To Think About For 2010

Thursday, December 17, 2009


Pretty accurate..

Beer: She's a low maintenance woman who will watch the Lakers game with you and prefers a dive bar to a club. If she does keg stands, thought, you may have a problem.

Tequila shot: This girl is a good time. But maybe too-good of a time, and you should wonder who she was taking shots with last night, before diving in commando-style…

Vodka cranberry: This girl is fun but classy. She likes to party but also leaves a little to the imagination. Cleavage is fine but no up-skirt ass shots, and chances are she's wearing underwear. If she has this drink without the vodka, she may have a UTI…!

Champange: She's a classy lassie but probably a gold differ. She think she deserves St. Tropez even though she is at Maloney's...

Whisky: This is just weird, and I would be very careful with this wild animal. No woman should drink the same thing that grandpas and ship captains drink.

So You Think You Can Dance - I Can Transform Ya

So i've never ever watched this show, but my friend D at work told me I should watch this performance. Holy crap, dude can dance!! The girl, ehh, not so much. But all in all, dope ass performance. Check it out...

Christmas Hero

Check out this video i saw from the Sound Off Blog... pretty sick.

"Former Disney special effects specialist Ric Turner (aka the best dad in the world) set his family up with a fully-functional, 21,268-bulb-strong Guitar Hero-themed holiday arrangement, and programmed it to play Eric Johnson’s “Cliffs of Dover.

When you play, you watch only the Christmas lights, but the audio you hear is from the Wii, so your flubs are broadcast for all to hear (people in cars can tune 99.1 and crank it up as loud as they want.) When we are not playing, a separate version of the program that has the audio from the recorded game plays with the lights as a loop."

Style Fyle

Thougth I'd post up some stuff on fashion.. saw this on F21 blog, and felt worth in reposting. Ladies shopping for your man? Take a look..Enjoy!

"WHO HE IS>> He may have a closet full of shoes and he may even own more accessories than you do, but let’s face it, this guy’s got style. His finger’s on the pulse of everything new and cool, and he’s not afraid to rock a little color.

WHAT TO GIFT>> Go for a colorful cardigan in his favorite shade or a scarf with a unique print you’ve yet to see him in. Don’t stress over scouring his mags or blog/website bookmarks"

"WHO HE IS>> He’d go for jeans and a tee over a tie any day, but his look always vibes casual-cool.

WHAT TO GIFT>> Whether he’s always active or more of a video game addicted, armchair adventurer, he’d live in a relaxed plaid shirt, edgy graphic tee, or a ribbed beanie from you, any day— To him, functional and comfortable, to you, adorable!"

After seeing this game winning shot against the Heat last night, I honestly believe that Kobe Bryant is THE best player of his generation... hands down. Chamberlin had his era, Jordan had his, and now Kobe proves time and time again, he is more than deserving to be in the same category as the greats.

Freshjive - 'Hope Is Fading Fast'

If you really know me, you know that I very very rarely talk about politics. It's just a subject that I prefer to stay away from, since it's so touchy to a lot of people. But, I came across this on Highsnobiety, and I thought this tee by Freshjive was very intriguing. They've been coming out with some strong statements in their line lately and this one is no exception. This is also the first tee that they've came out with that uses their 'non branding', where they took away all branding elements and just left a black tag. The shirt and the message speak for itself on Freshjive's take on the Obama admisinistration. Makes you think about how things still haven't 'changed' very much..

This image was also on Freshjive's site.. a pretty thought provoking image too..

Vestax Spin MIDI Controller

So i'll say without hesitation that nothing beats 2 turntables and a mixer hands down. But recently MIDI controllers have been making there way into the dj market. Why? Because they're small, easy to take on the go, relatively mediocre in price, and they're and all in one kind of package. MIDI stands for MIDI (Musical Instrument Digital Interface). So with todays Serato popularity recently with mobile and club dj's, Vestax has been coming out with some of the illest MIDI controllers (The Vestax VCI-300 to be specific), and they've now collabo'd with Apple. Yup, they're coming out with the Vestax 'Spin' which has dedicated Apple software for dj'ing. The system features almost everything the Vestax VCI-300 has, but here's the best part.. the VCI-300 costs around $850. Spin will only cost you $250. From what i've seen so far, your totally getting your money's worth. It has a built in soundcard and mic input, so you can plug directly into the controller. I'm thinking about getting one so I can mix in the car on long Vegas or SF roadtrips to pass the time, but we'll see. All in all, i'd rather take the VCI-300 for sure, but at that price, i'd have to think twice. Anyway, check out some of the pics..

Vestax VCI-300

Pretty much the same eh?

Not much bigger than a MacBook Pro, so it's a little smaller. But most of the features are still the same.

Ms. Gaga Got Pretty Bad..

***EDIT: This song is the shit and so is Gaga

Jordan Gatorade Bottle Commerical

It's amazing how strong Michael Jordan's image is. If you think about it, he's ever hardly in any commercials, but anything he does just blows a lot of things out of the water. The guy had such a strong impact on the world from just playing the game of basketball. That's pretty special. From shoes, to endorsements, to a lot of shit. And this Gatorade commercial is no exception. Love it the artistic vision in this. Check it out:

'Innovate' tee trend spotted on Style Sight

So this is pretty sick. My fellow designer Katrina found this while browsing Style Sight. The 'Innovate Tee' that I created, made it to Style Sight yo! For those who don't know, Style Sight is a very well renowned trend site, that companies all over the world use to forecast trends, to know what's the next best thing. Pretty cool that it actually made it on there. Looks like i'm doin' something right. Peep out the pics =)

Stop... Hammertime

So "Viral Marketing" is like the hottest thing going on right now with companies. For those who don't know what Viral Marketing is, it's basically marketing that is spread around by word of mouth, sort of like a virus (i.e. YouTube links). So, in this commercial, A&E have a new show called Hammertime and to do marketing for it, they dressed up random customers in gold MC Hammer pants. Can't touch this starts blasting over the intercom and a hundred people come rushing in doing the Hammer routine in unison! So awesome!!! Check it out:

Hellz Bellz: "Don't Waste The Pretty"

So my good friend Kat had me take a look at this post by Hellz on their blog. On the real, I couldn't have said it any better. I really love their blogs as well as M.O.B.'s. They often have really good reads that make you think about life. This read is and can be seen from a girls perspective, but can be applied to anyone in general.

"My current struggle with LIFE got me in a blogging rut, so ima hit u all with a lil something written by my Hayati, Abi. one of my closest girlfriends and about thee only bitch i know thats always on the same wavelength as i am. seriously, we share the same brain or something.. i promise i’ll be back after these messages………..

I ain’t even gonna front. I can be as shallow as a kiddie pool at times. U ain’t gotta lie to kick it - looks DO matter. And anyone who begs to differ is either ugly or sellin u some VIP ass wolf tickets.

Fellas, when u see a female sittin at the bar, what possesses u to come outta pocket and buy her a chilled shot of Goose? (Asides from the perv in u hoping she gets tipsy enough to rub her ass all over ur crotch?). And ladies, why’d u just give ur number out to a complete stranger in the middle of the Prive dancefloor knowin damn well u ain’t never gonna see him again? Whatever the reason is, I got 5 on it that it wasn’t ‘cuz of their “beautiful inner personality” shining thru his buff ass arms or creepin through her cleavage. People DON’T PLAY.

Whatever ur preference or definition of “beauty” is: looks still matter. However, they will only get u so far (At least with me anyway). A person’s physical appearance is what initially attracts me to them, but it definitely isn’t what makes me stay.
While a certain “je ne sais quoi” can contribute to one’s appeal, their personality, or rather lack there of, can take away from it as well.

I may notice an “ok” looking dude sit next to me in english lit. but never think anything of him until I look over in the middle of class and notice him sketching out an ill ass portrait of Angelina Jolie. And if there’s ONE characteristic that makes me and my girls’ heart melt and panties drop - it’s humor. It ain’t everything, but it really does go a looong way. If a man is constantly putting a smile on my face I’ll probably be too busy laughing to notice he’s not as tall as I usually like ‘em or has slightly crooked teeth (aye I said SLIGHTLY only lol).

On the other hand, “the prettiest people do the ugliest things.” I know way too many men who are a waste of dick because they’re too into themselves, obnoxious, or plain and simply boring. And no matter how beautiful u are, no real man will take u seriously if ur a female who always sells urself short or can’t carry on a conversation for longer than 5 minutes.
But most of all, being beautiful has NO guarantees.

It doesn’t guarantee love, or happiness, or success, or prosperity. It doesn’t guarantee u’ll never get hurt, or left, or abused, or cheated on. No matter how beautiful u are, there will always be someone just as good looking if not better. And u already know ur exes new man/lady can’t hold a candle to ur Colgate smile, but s/he’s still with them and not u, so in many circumstances looks are irrelevant. Besides, other people can think the world of u, but if u ain’t got the right mind set to genuinely agree with them it doesn’t matter. So u may wanna hold off before asking God to trade in ur intelligence or talent for an ass u can sit ur cup on or washboard abs.

‘Cuz newsflash: people get old … in more ways than one. So trust me when I say that it ain’t gonna be ur sagging Amazon titties or ur NeYo receding hairline that keeps u living comfortably and happily married."

Like I said, I couldn't have said it any better, but my additional take on it is that I really can't stand how some girls seem to only give guys that look like they came straight out of a freakin' Guys Nylon or GQ magazine a chance to talk to them and get to know them. Especially in those top 40 clubs, it's annoying. Not diggin' that whole scene, and it's pointless for guys that don't meet that "look" standard to try to pick up on a girl in those places, but that's another conversation. Yes, it's true how looks do matter to a certain extent, but some girls just need to take the blinders off their eyes and start seeing deeper than that. Guys like that are usually going to A) Be full of themselves.. or B) Gonna cheat on you. However, the same applies to guys, so we can't be hypocritical, so we're just as guity. But I guess it's true what they say, "Nice guys finish last", but hey, at least we finish. But as long as your true to yourself fellas, you'll find a girl that loves you for you, and don't need to do, or act like some fake ass shit. Just be you, because that's all you can or should be...

Nike Holiday 2009 Air Hoop Structure White/Black/Grey

Saw these today on Highsnobiety, the look pretty fresh, think I might have to pick these up...

Another great colorway of the Nike Air Hoop Structure will be coming for Holiday 2009. The other day we showed you the black/purple/acqua colorway and here comes another classic look of the sneaker. Perfect match of white leather, grey suede and white perforated leather with some nice color accents. Look out for these at Leaders1354 later this year.

A Day In The Life of Lego Star Wars

So I came across this post on Metro Park's blog. Just thought i'd share. I got a good laugh from it and thought it was pretty dope...

"This weeks installment is brought to you by: Mike Stimpson.

Mike (aka Balakov) captures everything from the sensitive side of the Stormtrooper to Vader riding a motorcycle with this amazing series of photographs. You can find Mike aka Balakov on Flickr. Aside from his work with the Star Wars gang, Mike is also known for recreating some famous moments in history – LEGO style."

Here's a link to his site. If you really love his stuff, you can buy prints of his work I think. Check out the site below for more...
