Being unemployed and home most of my day has led me to watch way too much of the tube. I hate a majority of the commercials that are geared toward hiring this lawyer, joining this diet programs or investing in this product that will make you “regular”, I'm talking about you Activia! However Chi Chi's latest commercial managed to made me chuckle.
I don't want chicken, vegetarian here, but I could sure go for some tortilla chips, guac and salsaaaaa! Glad I have taste buds.
California-based clothier Worn Free makes faithful reproductions of vintage Rock & Roll t-shirts. If a Rock star wore it back in the day chances are good that Worn Free sells a reproduction of it, or that they will in the future!
Their shirts are a little pricey, but they're really well made, super soft, super comfortable, and cut surprisingly well. In other words they "fit" but aren't skin-tight, and don't ride up when you put your hands in the air like a lot of others do.
Trying to nurse off a stomach bug I caught early last weekend I was feeling much better until I saw the PediPistol commercial this afternoon. If you dare view the commercial it can be seen on the Pedipistol website, but it's far worse seeing it on a TV screen.
Apparently the "creation" behind the product was to have easier, less straining access to "pamper" your feet. It's basically a damn Dremel with a variety of different bit attachments! What crept me out, besides the close ups of the Pedipistol sanding down a scaled heel, is the type of people who would purchase this product. Personally if I were pregnant, injured, old or too chubby to reach my feet I'd rather go see a professional than have all that toe and skin tissue debris floating everywhere.
I haven't owned a pair of Jordans since the Terminators back in 1985 (my only other pair were the original red, black & white joints), and I don't generally fuck with hi-tops, but if I had dough to spare I think I'd rock these.
They're some retro Hi Strap Jordan 1's modeled after the afrocentric-themed red, black and green design scheme of A Tribe Called Quest's 'The Low End Theory' and 'Midnight Marauders' LPs from '91 and '93 respectively.
I nearly fell off the treadmill (while walking, PS...fitness SUCKS) when it popped on the TV screen.
You mean to tell me that I'm paying $40/mo. to walk like a hamster on a wheel at my friendly neighborhood YMCA when I could pay 10 buck$ to learn how to be a (well toned, possibly golden bronzed) whore?
WORK IT YOU DIRTY FLIRTY GIRLS. LOVE DON'T COME FREE!
I saw these dudes chilling out at the local Target and had to have them in my collection. Keter first mentioned the awesomeness of Mighty Muggs a few months ago, and yes he got his very own Mola Ram all to himself! I've got the Boba Fett and Dr. Doom ones already and Miss Behavin has herself a lil Chewbacca. So it's safe to say Imageyenation is a big fan of these little vinyl/plastic pieces of "recycled awesome".
I've always been a huge fan of Snake-Eyes and Storm Shadow and I was openly geeked when I saw they were now available in Mugg form.
I suppose with the live action 'G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra' set to hit screens this Summer, Hasbro has a wide range of Joe toys slated to hit shelves (Destro Mugg on deck...consider it copped!), and yeah...I'll be keeping an eye out for them.
Oh, and yes they did make a G.I. Joe film. My brother (and a few others) had no clue. Imagine his shock when he saw the recently released trailer.
If you already have Kid Robot's previous collaboration with Stones Throw Records—the Madvillain figure—you need this 8'' Lord Quas action figure—which is available in yellow and blue and comes complete with action brick and spliff—so they can play together.
I've been coveting these Nike SB 720° Dunks, fashioned after Atari's vintage skating-themed arcade game 720°, since they dropped this Summer. Thanks to eBayer jcnice08 who put a pair of size 13's up for competitive bid I finally got 'em, and for a sweet price to boot!
I fucking loved the 720° arcade game back in the day and sunk many a quarter into its boombox-bedecked, oddly-angled-joystick-having shell when I was a kid. Its groundbreakingly original subject-matter, sleek polygonal design, refreshing gameplay, killer-bee attacks and signature "skate or die" warning made for one addictive game.
The kicks themselves caught my eye with the combination of muted and bold colors and the checker-board pattern interior. Now that I got I 'em I'm happy to report they look really pretty on my feets.
Or maybe it's more that I was on it, but just didn't post it on time? Now, before I get any crap from people (cough...cough...El Keter...cough...cough...), I'm sorry for the delay in postings...The real world can get a bit crazy sometimes.
At any rate, I saw this Adidas ad on BoardsMag ages ago, but never got around to posting it. (For those wondering, it's for their 60th Anniversary campaign.) Then today, El Keter posted a really great read on Blogarhythms about the Frankie Valli remixed track used in the ad.
So, here's the fantastic commercial which features cameos from DMC (of Run-DMC, Kevin Garnett, Russell Simmons, Katy Perry, Method Man, Redman, David Beckham, Missy Elliot and a few other recognizable faces.
