Enjoy the times we have with our loved ones, and remember those who didn't make it, but are still here in spirit. Eat good eats, and let's get prepped for New Year's Eve!

The Gift of Giving

My favorite Boston store owner, Kerry from Proletariat, is giving quite a gift while helping out those in need this holiday season:
"Bring me any warm item: a coat, jacket, hoody, sweatpants in good condition, etc. and I will give you $20 off of a Canorak or Proletariat 378 Denim from now until the end of the year. Then we can donate the items to the homeless to help them get through the next few months."
That's what's up.

R.I.P. Doc Elllis

Dude threw a no-no tripping face. Respect.

Not Too Shabby...

This is a pretty damn good faux-trailer. Not too bad with the motion tracking, and the layers are pretty tight. Can you count all the movies they cut up?

Dear Jun...

These new Jun Watanabe x Ubiq shoes look like they just graduated from Clown College. I bet they can juggle 3 cats and a chainsaw. FAIL.

Ok Seriously...

If I see you wearing these I will kick you in the teeth. However, at least you'll have something to match your fresh hat.

Winter Adventures

Melee, Jade, Kares and I thought it would be an awesome idea to go on an expedition during the snowstorm. Space nuggets, smart ass, "vitamin water" = awesomeness.



We also hung out with santas. We freaked them out.

Vans V224 Holiday Pack

The Vans V224 Holiday Pack consists of two colorways, shitty, and shittier. Supras are horrific, please Vans, DO NOT GO DOWN THAT ROAD!

Have I found my Doppleganger?


To whomever writes thatshideous.com, respect.

2 of my Favorite Characters...

Baroness (Sienna Miller)

Snake Eyes

Dropping August 7th, 2009. Check firstshowing.net for more info. Too bad this great piece of my childhood memories is going to get a serious Hollywood raping. Bye bye memories, I swear if you Hollywood herbs try to bring Zartan into this I will fly over there and crush one of you.

In Case you Missed it...

Too much is apparently not enough...

Miami Ink’s Darren Brass did 2 shoes for DC. I think that's 2 shoes too many. I would stick to the tats.

Basterds.



It's coming, and I for one, am very excited.

Throwback Fridays

Since winter is upon us, the rest of this post is dedicated to some of the riders who have influenced me the most, both in skill and creativity.

Corporal "Thundersticks" Anson

Huck Gee continues to wreak havoc the custom vinyl scene. On Dec 12th @ noon PST, this guy drops on Huck's Online Store. Only 10 of these custom munny figures in existence, and look ridic!

Just one of those nights...




Thanks for the pics Star Star, you give the BEST directions.

'Tis the Season


This one never gets old, does it Barnhart?

Doo Doo.

This is how you can get crap on your shoes without even wearing them.
I'm a big fan of Slayer, and a huge fan of Vans as well, but this is just shitty. Much like the more recent version of the Iron Maiden Sk8-Hi 2s, These are no more than the logo slapped on the side. I think the embroidery on the heel is tops on both, but from there, the attention to detail goes to shit. If I see you wearing these I will poop on them. Be forewarned.

Thanks to Mr. Mess for the heads up!

Buff Monster TT

Lordy. Me likes.

Macaela is the best.

Friday started this weekend off proper. Jeff, Leah Z, and I headed to Macaela's Karaoke Birthday Party.
Not sure if that's The 4 Tops or "Louie, Louie". Pissed that they didn't have The Trashmen's "Surfin' Bird" or Phil Collins' "Against All Odds".
Leah and Macaela are B-a-n-a-n-a-s!
(note Macaela's big-girl glass)
Impromptu "Beat It" Knife fight. If only we had come in costume.
It soon went from a party to an all out Kareoke fiasco. Hands in the air, everyone screaming, pure beauty.
Your guess is as good as mine.
Met some new friends and packed the car for a trip to HQ. This was followed by libations and a late-night dinner with the fam. Saturday is a whole other story, but I will say this: My crew is tops. All for one, and one for all. No one gets left behind. Ever.

Incredibad.

The first single from The Lonely Island's debut album "INCREDIBAD". Andy Samberg, Akiva Schaffer and Jorma Taccone.

My Official Review of Salo.

If you ever see this man, run far, far away.

LOST S4 Alternate Endings

I'm hyped about Lost's Season 5 Premiere, and found this little gem that threw my head for a spin.

Speaking of which, WHAT THE FUCK IS UP WITH THE FOUR-TOED STATUE???

Nuff Longtalking.

SB x TH


The Hundreds x Forum/Special Blend boards and outerwear are featured on The Hundreds' blog. I'm a big fan of the chocolate one pictured above (edit: turns out it's black. Someone needs to get on the color correction!) and am definitely feeling the SB bomb hit. Looks like this a flip on SB's Gunner jacket.
