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...

Hellz Bellz Summer '09 "So Lolita" Collection/Website

So, it goes without saying that Hellz drops some serious dope shit. Can't even begin to express how talented this company is. They just dropped they're new Summer '09 line, and it's sick! Also, my good friend Brandon re-did they're site and it looks dope! Check it out:

iPhone 3G S

All I can say is... FINALLY! I think this phone now has it all. But of course, if you were able to jailbreak your old one, then this isn't all that great. BUT, if you didn't, then this is news your glad to hear. Peep it!

Looks the same on the outside, but it's what's on the inside that counts. Hmm, where have I heard that before...

Now we can capture the most random crap... on video!

Not all that exciting, but helpful still.

This i'm actually happy about, because if you've ever tried to use your iPhone as a GPS, you know it's a bitch! Most of the time I didn't know what direction is was driving in!

This could be cool, but could get old really quick. Imagine if you were talking shit about someone and it accidently called them and listened to your whole convo.. FML, haha! But that would probly never happen, seeing as you have to hold down the menu button down for like 2 seconds. But, I guess we'll see.

I can't stress how much this is going to help this phone. Funny how old technology took so long to make it's way into a phone that was way ahead of it's time.

Shopping Day On Fairfax/Melrose: Magic Come Up!

So Kat, Caroline and I hit up Fairfax today to go inspiration shopping for work. It was a good and MUCH needed inspirational trip. It's dope to see just how everything around you can spark a whole world of creativity in your mind. I gotta visit that spot more often, even if it's just to clear my mind of any bullshit that goes on in my life!

Anyway, I was able to pick up some kicks that i've wanted for a while! Some new re-issue Converse Weapons: Magic Johnson colorway! So sick.. #549 out of 900! Lucked out on this pick up, since they've been out for a while. I was so excited to get 'em that I decided to take some photos as soon as I got home during halftime of the Laker/Orlando Finals: Game 3.

Fresh out the box!

Side profile...


Had to take some photos with Magic himself!

Even the figure is rockin' the weapons! Dope!!!

Even down to the under sole! Peep it!


Thanks for visiting my blog! Been thinking about making one for a while, so here it is!

I'll be posting random shit, from thoughts, to fashion, to everything and anything that's on my radar. Enjoy!
