Coming back into the rotation. This classic is now wrapped in a black canvas-coated felt that gives the shoe a really luxurious look. Classy touches include an articulated crepe toe guard, checkered lining and gold stitched stripes.

The OX year is a conservative year, one of traditions and values. This is not a year to be outrageous. A slow but steady year. This OX year will bring stability and growth where patience and diligence pays off. This is a year of Harvest - when we reap what we have sown. Take care of business this year, do not let things slide.

One of the skate world’s best-kept secrets is the ultra-collectible but hard to find SKATE BOOK. A 350+ page hardcover “mag,” from the minds of skaters SALMAN AGAH and MIKE BALLARD, the refreshingly formatted quarterly periodical is a welcome departure from the copycat skate mags that could once call themselves cutting-edge. Featuring beautiful photography and in-depth articles, Skate Book embraces several themes and riders per issue, delving deep into each in a timeless manner befitting the magazine’s hard cover status. Volume 3 is a must-have featuring lengthy profiles on OG pro and Supertouch homie LANCE MOUNTAIN, vintage skate stickers, and cover boy BART SIMPSON who was illustrated especially for the issue in a series of spreads depicting “El Barto” ripping hard across legendary SoCal spots like Carlsbad, Hollywood High, and the Sunset Carwash Gap.

Nike Martial Arts TD, a sneaker that will meet all the needs of a martial artist, despite his or her specific discipline. The vamp is constructed out of layered leather to ensure durability as well as protection for the wearer’s foot. Padded ankle collar provides ample support. An oversize toe cap in thick suede insulate the wearer’s foot while in contact with his or her opponent. The sneaker has a wider than usual stance, needed as anchor during grappling. Meanwhile, its lower center of gravity guarantees a sense of balance. An unusual outsole, with most of its treads angled at 45° degree, was added since most martial artists’ foot movement pivot at a angle.

Born in Mumbai, India. 24 yr old model turned actress can be seen in 2008's "Slum Dog Millionaire," which is nominated for four Golden Globes this year. The movie is so beautiful and rich. It will give you a feeling of "City of God". I recommend it to everyone. The Happening gives this movie its seal of approval!

Before Banksy, before Shepherd Fairey, there was Ron English, the catalytic figure in the advancement of street art away from traditional eighties wild-style lettering and into clever statement and masterful trompe l’oeil based art. For “Mythographic Vicissitudes,” Ron created a series of paintings based on variations on modern mythologies. Applying a sense of reverence to his patented mash of religion, history and art, English gives equal weight to all mythologies, from Jesus to Bigfoot to Expressionism. “Loch Ness Starry Night” depicts the emergence of the monster as seen through the eyes of Vincent Van Gogh. “Bigfoot in the Garden of the Gods” exposes the mythical missing link in his Colorado Springs lair, the epicenter of American hardcore Christianity. Marilyn and a mysterious Mickey Mouse, his face obscured by a gas mask, are bathed in Toulouse-Lautrecian light. And, a portrait of Jesus, the fisher of boys, fills in the messiah’s missing years.
Each year, thousands of children turn up missing. Some are found. But most, unfortunately, are not. Many of the children are victims of abduction, some are runaways, and a large handful of them . . . have been EATEN by monsters. However, the digestive system of many monsters is abnormally slow, and a large portion of these children that have been eaten are still ALIVE, patiently waiting to be saved. Over the last year, from various parts of the country, I have gathered a selection of written S.O.S. letters from some of these children who are slowly being digested by the monsters that devoured them. My new solo art exhibition, titled "Letters From Digested Children" will showcase those S.O.S letters, as well as all new artwork, installations, and portraits of some of the more popular child-eating monsters in honor of the children who have been wrongfully eaten, and slowly digested.
