Nike Mad Jibe




Using the iconic Dunk for the outsold and a boat shoe style upper. The Swoosh markings are done away making it much more of a sophisticated looking shoe. I digg.

Buttah Sticks



Tonight was the first time boarding this season @ Skibowl. I wish i would've gotten a pass but I know I won't be able to go up as often as I would like. But when I'm up I'm in an ultimate bliss with the board under my feet, riding smooth like buttah and beatz to bang. I've watched Mack Dawg films ever since I started riding as a lil grom. And now it's been two decades since they first started.

Can't forget the classics either:

Nas X Fila velour suit



I don't know why I've been posting so much Hip Hop tomfoolery but Nas' velour suit looks straight laid back. I'd be drinking my hot cocoa while watching A Christmas Story. Check It:

Sooner or Later



Check out the Vid.

In Search Of...would have to be one of my all time favorite albums. Copped that album at Best Buy for like 8 bucks when it first came out. And soon after things weren't the same anymore.


"Days Go By"

Canondale's Stealth Concept Bike






The bike was designed by Cannondale's in-house design team, and prototyped from Carbon fiber and aluminum at Cannondale's own factory in Bedford, PA. The frame was designed and manufactured as a monocoque carbon part making the front triangle including the chainstays in the mold, a first for Cannondale. The frame mold was machined from two 350lb blocks of aluminum and used seven bladders during the molding process. Using a similar molding process, the Stealth concept also showcases the first full carbon fiber rigid Lefty fork for a road bike including disc brakes. The dropouts, seatpost clamp, headset cups, Lefty road spindle, and fork mold were all machined from aluminum in our Bethel office in CT by our Engineers. The final bonding of the carbon and aluminum structure was completed in the Bedford facility as was final finishing, paint and assembly. The prototype is rideable and weighs in at 8,8kg.

Thinking about Warmer Days







Its starting to snow here in Portland and I can't wait to go board on hood. But I always think of warmer days. In June I visited Kauai for my bro's wedding. I can't stress how great of a place Hawaii is. It is my refuge. I'm still Q-tippin' sand outta my ear.

I took these pics with the Canon PowerShot G7. Wish you were there...P.S. with Love

Vampire Weekend @ The Crystal Ballroom


Who gives a F**K bout an Oxford Comma...

Sucka Free


Where the beatz are bangin' tonight.

Buggin' @ 2 in the AM


Limited to only 500 pieces, German camera manufacturer Leica, has announced the release of their D-Lux 4 model in a limited titan edition. Along with the titanized aluminum casing, the camera will feature a beautifully crafted black calf leather holdster. The 10 Megapixel D-Lux 4 features a CCD image sensor, Venus Engine IV image processor, F2.0 wide angle lens, Face Detection, Intelligent ISO and Mega OIS. A release is slated for January 2009.

There's no reason why a person shouldn't have a camera handy at all times.  It can be one of your best tools or worst enemies.  The Leica is pretty much top of the line in personal camera.  This piece is ballin'.
