Hi-top sneakers are the craze this year with brands like Reebok, Supra and Puma contributing to the popularity of this style. Here's Gravis' take on the hi-top sneaker which results in the Gravis Lowdown. This particular model feature a mainly white colorway with perforated leather. Retails for $80 USD.

Creep On The Down Low?

Now here’s a gadget that’s fitting for concerned parents, motivated stalkers, and suspicious lovers alike—so beware if you’re messing around guys. The Cell Phone Sim Card Spy is the a device that offers a quick and easy way to snoop through someone’s cell phone. All you have to do it sneakily pop out the SIM card of target cell phone, plug it into the USB reader, and then hook it up to a computer. All the information is downloaded and saved for you to parse through at will. Sift through SMS text messages—including deleted ones—and address book details undetected—assuming you can remove and replace the SIM card without being caught. Of course, there are less nefarious uses for this device like storing and recovering lost data, but somehow we doubt that’s what people will use it for. Consequently, the makers of this mobile espionage do offer another method if you don’t want to shell out the $149 this thing costs, “Take the SIM card and crush it or cut it up with a wire cutter. That’s the only way to guarantee it’s gone.” And that’s free.

BBC Club Boat Shoes

Billionaire Boys Club took an interesting route with their new collection, incorporating American classic themes, such as the Tennis theme and others, usually known from brands such as Ralph Lauren. The direction is also seen in such pieces as the new Boat Shoes, which just dropped in stores. The shoe comes with a modern silhouette, but at the same time with all its classic features. Definitely a nice and unexpected piece by the brand.

Jeremy Kipnis' home theatre is quite a bargain for $6 million.
The picture elements alone are composed of a Sony SRX-S110 Professional Video Projector with an impressive 4,096-by-2,160 resolution and the Stewart Snowmatte 1.0 Gain Laboratory-Grade Motion Picture Screen stands a t a mammoth 18 x 10-foot which is nearly equivalent to an actual theater screen. The players and sources are even more exciting with a Sony BDP-S1 Blu-ray Player complimented by a state-of-the-art Toshiba HD-XA1 HD DVD Player with SATA Drive (72 HDTV Hours Total) and Mark Levinson N° 51 DVD/CD Media Player upping the ante for most other HT systems. The Jeremy Kipnis also features a Pioneer HLD-X0 Hi-Vision HDTV MUSE Laserdisc Player as well as JVC HMDH-5U D-VHS Recorder.

Samuel Adams' Utopias

Ima def try sipping on this...This beer is brewed by the Boston Beer Company, using the brand name of Samuel Adam's Utopias, named after one of the founding fathers of the USA. This comes second in the list of the world's most expensive beer which costs around $100 per bottle (24 oz) or about $67 per pint, sold in copper bottles resembling the copper brewing kettles which are used by brewers for hundreds of years.
The alcohol content is 25%, making it the strongest beer in the world (listed in the Guinness Book of Records). The process of making this beverage can take up to 12 years, giving it the unique and rich flavors. It is said that the production was limited to 8,000 bottles per year.

So I finally found out Tinker Hatfield (genius behind numerous Nike designs) got his inspiration for the Jordan XI my personal and I am pretty sure 1 million other peoples favorite shoe...

"A lawn mower has to be really rugged; you're bumping into the fence, so it's got to be real tough around the edge. Maybe the top of it doesn't take so much abuse, so you can have a little more fun with color."


Louis Vuitton First Television Ad Campaign

We've recently seen Louis Vuitton's ad starring Pharrell Williams for the LV-Blason Jewelry. Now for its new and first television ad campaign, LV is shifting a bit from their luxury image to a more adventurous one. The tone of the ad is more philosophical too asking, "What is a journey?" With collective images from around the world of people, nature, and cityscapes (with a little image hint of an LV bag), this ad is Louis Vuitton's most emotional one yet. The campaign comes from the Ogilvy agency in Paris.

BMXer Gets Thrown For A Loop

http://view.break.com/452815 - Watch more free videos

Ouch. And you thought love hurts. Watch as this BMX rider gets all psyched up as he attempts a 360 Loop in a giant steel pipe, and doesn’t even come close to making it. The only thing that made it all the way around was the bike, which comes dangerously closed to being lodged up his ass.

Hey Mama Grammy Version

Called the Chanel Choco Phone, this concept has been designed by Fred de Garilhe.
It works by integrating an optical fiber system that display image between two glass parts. There are 12 micro lighter fibers, that throw image components to the glass, that offer a quite good luminosity, and keep the mobile phone concept as light as possible. All lights only appear when you open the phone, by pushing removable part on the side of it.


Housing six different schools of art in one fluid structure, architectural firm RSP have created an "Art Canyon" effect that successfully focuses the living energy internally. This internal focus ingeniously serves a dual purpose; by creating a creative hive effect of activity, while at the same time saving valuable real estate in a city quickly running out of usuable space. A near perfect example of form following function.

Flashing Lights!!!!

I really dont know what to say...def different. The girl her name is Rita G and I heard theres 2 more parts to it. Def different, not what I expected

Amy Winehouse's Valarie off Mark Ronson's cd...one of my 5 favorite songs from 07, got my hyped about Amy Winehouse and introduced me to Wale who is the dude spitting at the start of the video. Ronson killed the beat...never posted this video but I figured after the Grammy's no one can really afford to sleep on Ronson, I'd hope Winehouse & Lily Allen are on your radar now, Rhymefest, Wale, & Daniel Merriweather and the whole Allido records camp

Throwback Joint

Fat Joe-John Blaze, takes me back to Hammer & I football my Soph year

V-Day Ideas...

Dedicated to the One I Thug Love from jeff on Vimeo.

Don’t know what to write in that oversized heart shaped card this Valentine’s Day? The guys over at The Real throw a few options your way in this clip, inspired of course by Hip Hop’s most romantic ballads. Listen up, cause like they say, love isn’t the only four letter word...

Kanye Owns The Grammys

All I gotta say is we are witnessing something musically that comes along once every decade with Kanye and yeah maybe he is a bit cocky, maybe he talks a little out to much but what he does as an artist is amazing. Stronger was brilliant, Ima be real Hey Mama brought me tears (the 1st time I really accepted my aunt passing away recently), and his speech some people felt was ugly but I think he's right, these award shows are for the artist not the networks, not for the $ from ratings...anyways here it is if you missed it

Congrats Mark Ronson

Props to my 2nd fav musical influence and some big awards including producer of the year and for his work with Amy Winehouse

Missy Elliot-Ching-A-Ling

I tried 2 use the 3D glasses I got out of my Blue Harvest Deluxe Family Guy DVD....but.....THEY DIDN'T WORK ON THIS!!!

MOB x Uffie x Cobrasnake Sping 08 Collection

Ladies Married To The Mob is so dope

New York's own Married to the Mob Spring 08 collection preview has arrived.
The Spring collection is modeled by Ed Banger Records rising star Uffie and was shot by Mark the Cobrasnake as part of an ongoing series of portraits intended to showcase remarkable and celebrated females from all over the world.
The Spring MOB collection features a very special tee that is a collaboration between Fafi and MOB and also features a other special Boot Camp jacket which twists the MOB theme into an army-influenced jacket.

Broken Halo

If you didnt know, now you know that Ima Angels fan so this makes sense

The concept of Broken Halo was derived from the political history of what was once the Anaheim Angels of Orange County, who are also known as “The Halos”. The baseball team has gone through several name changes in its history, first changing it to the California Angels in 1965. The Disney Company took control in 1997, and extensively renovated the Angel Stadium while stating that both the stadium’s name and the team’s name contain the word “Anaheim” in it- making it known that it was absolutely imperative that everyone knew where the roots and history of the team came from. Hence, the team became known and loved as the Anaheim Angels.
In 2005, new owner Arte Moreno wanted to tap into the Los Angeles media market by changing the Anaheim Angels into the Los Angeles Angels. This obviously didn’t sit very well with the city of Anaheim or the team fanatics. With a standing agreement (Disney’s deal & conditions), the city of Anaheim and Angels fans backed their roots and demanded that “Anaheim” was kept in the team name as well as the stadium name as promised in 1997. Meeting the city’s demands half-way, the team name was changed to the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim. The city, the fans and even the Los Angeles Dodgers vehemently disputed the change but the name stood and sadly, still stands today.
There’s nothing more tragic than seeing a legendary entity lose its roots on grounds to gain media and money. The Angels sold their soul to the Devil. They are the fallen angels; the Broken Halos.
Triumvir is telling that story with the Broken Halos Spring 2008 release, which consists of both t-shirts and a fitted cap collaboration with Estate LA.


So there has been talk for hmm about a year/year and a half about Kanye and Nike doing something together and well i believe the Grammys were the 1st time we seen what the shoe might look like...kind of like the Ato Matsumato's we saw at the Summer Jam show last year and yeah unofficially I'ma dub em as the Nike Marty McFlys from the BTF II idea he came with

Old Spice

I don't use it...but I will now

Daily Swagger

The latest Supra release: the Muska Denim SkyLow. We’ve seen the SkyHi in denim before, as well as many other color-ways, and it was pretty nice. I’m usually not a big fan of denim shoes, but on this shoe the navy denim and the white stitching just give it an approachable feel-nothing too flashy. If you look closely, the denim runs vertically on the front and really gives it some class. They’re on the way! These will go quick!

Daily Swagger

Teeny-bopping ringtone rappers might keep the bizarre-colored Bapestas relevant, but expect ahead-of-the-trend heads to favor these premium leather, tre-toned mock-ups. Bape NYC, got them over the weekend, so call in some favors or get in line early.

In Case You Were In A Coma

Sickest play I've since since Moss' over the shoulder toss before halftime like 3 years ago...

Air Jordan Carmine VI’s

All too often, sneaker collectors, blogs, companies themselves, and pretty much everyone throw way too much hyperbole and exaggerate their opinions, either from a lack of creativity in their writing or in an effort to generate more attention, page hits, or sales. Conscious or not, everyone is guilty of it, and I’m no different. With that said, the Air Jordan Carmine VI’s that will be part of the VI/XVII Countdown Pack may very well be the best sneaker release of the next five years.

Sunday, February 3, 2008


Gotta show NYC some love forget the Pats...clip is crappy quality but whatever

Comme des Garcons x Lacoste

Comme des Garcons continues their long term relationship with French label Lacoste and has just released new Spring/Summer 2008 polo shirts in collaboration with the brand. They come in a variety of colors, partly with a tonal crocodile logo and some nice detailed stitching.

Furthermore they also made a black Comme des Garcons x Lacoste jacket out of the traditional Lacoste polo materials, with a black tonal crocodile and pockets. Reinforce just received all the pieces in store.

Still waiting on my girl Kelsey at Lacoste to hook this up =]
