Always Strive For the Top(high stop): Twin Peaks(Nike SB 2009)

Although dunks are the most over popularized pair of sneakers that Nike has created in its long history, they still remain as one of my favorites. So you can only imagine my excitement when I saw the “Twin Peaks” in Nike SB’s 2009 preview. They are named after the popular 90’s television series “Twin Peaks” which follows the investigation, headed by Special Agent Dale Cooper (Kyle MacLachlan), of the brutal murder of a popular and respected teenager and homecoming queen. Not to stray from the amazingness of the kicks: they feature black suede upper with dark grey inserts on the toebox and quarter panels. Some highlights of the shoe including the bright green contrast stitching and the blue owl illustration on the ankle area. They are scheduled to hit Nike SB accounts in January so be on the look out. CAUSE U KNOW I WILL FIND THEM!!!

Love is You?

It is truly tragic to lose
its even worse to idly watch it happen
love is u, sings Ms Michele
If love in all respects is you
then why do smiles lie
why do kisses through tears seem daunting
Is it reality or a figment of a never tiring imagination
the heart is heavy but actions grow cold
love is u she repeats over and over again
louder, louder, each time with more hurt then before
why have I not noticed this before
love is you!...shes making a statement
love is you?...shes asking a question
so confusion is born to a mother of variables
love is a child that is without nurture
often persuaded and misguided by it sibling
love is you
living with the inability to do what is real
love is me
falling when ther is a shoulder to lean on
so the statement becomes a question
one we refuse to answer
all because we don’t know if love truly is you

love is you, by Chrisette Michele...listen with out prejudice

Sad Day

Today started like any other, woke up around 2ish, ate, showered and so forth. Unlike most days though, today was a truly sad one. So I get a friend request from mickey(for those who don’t know, thats my little cuz). My precious little no homework doing, stinky, picky little cousin, who till this days doesn’t shower if not told to do so. I still remember the days when he would poop in random parts of the house and not tell anyone, or the hour long tantrums and the ass kicking that followed. When I got his “friend request”, I guess it hit me, THE LITTLE FUCKER IS GROWING UP! He’s almost as tall as I am, has the family looks (yes ladies), and from what I can see, is undoubtedly intelligent. My question is how did I not see it coming? I mean he probably drives, smokes, drinks….ok ok maybe I took it to far but im sure he found out that his little man has a second function(as I did at his age lol). The thing is he’s 13 now, and it wont belong before wer buying houses along side each other. Which brings me to the realization, LIFE IS SO SHORT and we often don’t look around while we’re here. Enjoy the people around you, watch them grow and grow with them……it only happens once …..and as always…LOVE!!!!

Burger King releases men's fragrance?

So for the past couple of weeks I’ve seen things that have led me to believe that the end of the world is near. Today my beliefs were confirmed with Burger Kings announcement that they’re coming out with a men’s fragrance. Apparently the men’s cologne is supposed to capture the essence of broiled meat. The cologne retails for a meager four US dollars but is not offered in the UK. The website and a relating video is posted below, have fun fatties ;)

Shoe Thrower Awarded a Virgin Wife

An Egyptian man said on Wednesday he was offering his 20-year-old daughter in marriage to Iraqi journalist Muntazer al-Zaidi, who threw his shoes at U.S. President George W. Bush in Baghdad on Sunday,
The daughter, Amal Saad Gumaa, said she agreed with the idea. "This is something that would honor me. I would like to live in Iraq, especially if I were attached to this hero," she told Reuters by telephone.
Her father, Saad Gumaa, said he had called Dergham, Zaidi's brother, to tell him of the offer. "I find nothing more valuable than my daughter to offer to him, and I am prepared to provide her with everything needed for marriage," he added.
Zaidi's gesture has struck a chord across the Arab world, where President Bush is widely despised for invading Iraq in 2003 and for his support for Israel.
Amal is a student in the media faculty at Minya University in central Egypt.
Zaidi's response to the proposal was not immediately clear.

Graceful Ignorance

my beautiful girl
with your skin so supple
your eyes squinting
from the radiant sun
you look uneasy,
adlibs plague your speech
thoughts on heroin
blood racing
notice the way ur eyes well up
with impending laughter
your smile sends bursts
of joy through my heart of clay
the same one you once enchanted
it’s weird that I see all
but knew absolutely nothing
it kills me to know u play
it seems as though my
beautiful girl is running
running from the one she knows best
my bronze skinned girl with
your long locks and spotted face
love grows for you
thick and plump
ready for ur harvest

Not So Daily Bullshit Dec 13, 09

Earth date December 13, 2009: So I’m in the sac standing in line at burger king when the heffa in front of me goes “Can I have a big mac and fries?” Everybody within a five “sneaker” radius was lookin each other like this brawd. After dieing in her face and embarrassing her, the cashier informs her that she not at McDonalds and life continues. Being the asshole that I am, when it came my turn to order I go "can I have a frosty please?" Than as if we organized it, the guy behind me goes “can I get some chicken selects”. Soon after, a fellow asshole in that back shouts “can a brotha get a happy meal?” At this point everybody in line is crackin up, I even noticed some people at Einstein bagel getting some free laughs in. Now mind you, the heffer as hers fries and is waiting for her whopper (or in her words a big mac). I don’t know if it frustration or sheer embarrassment cause next thing I know she goes "I don't even wan eat anymore" drops her fries and walks out of line.

The Wait

Death lies comfortably at the tip of my tongue
Hatred sits waiting in my palms
Trying to be pure is worth a lifetime
In the eye of the storm sits his calm
I wake up to a world of dysfunction
To realize I’m a culprit myself
Trying to buy truth in a store of lies
My heart sits on its shelf
Disaster is what I am
My mind mongers decay
All the while his grace looks upon me
As I live a life, astray
Glances shared in a mirror
Collar suffocates my very being
Trying to loosen the self-inflicted noose
Closed eyes that perpetrate seeing
Blood flows, but is their life?
Eyes wandering in a trance
Heavens love song calls
The world only offers a glance
Am I giving you up my love?
For the pleasures of the moment
Do I break your heart habitually?
Does your soul lie in torment?
Do you bleed the actions of my day?
Do you cry the thoughts of my bed?
Do I hurt your ego at all?
Or do I crush your spirit instead
Death lies comfortably at the tip of my tongue
Hatred sits waiting in my palms
Trying to be pure is worth a lifetime
In the eye of the storm sits his calm

Originally thought to be releasing on December 26, 2008, Jordan brand has updated their release dates and have decided to move the date of release up to December 20, 2008. They are definitely the most wanted Countdown Package, so it makes sense that Jordan Brand would save the best for last.

The Air Jordan 12 (XII) Original (OG) - Taxi (White / Black - Taxi) has been retroed for this countdown package and sports a white / black color scheme with gold accents.
