ISM thick knit socks made in Japan. Took these photos off of Save Khaki NYC's blog. I have a pair of these and they are thick and amazing. For $20 though they better last me at least a heavy winter. Nothing like a pair of comfortable, quality winter socks with color ways that make me not mind the weather as much.

Skateboard superstunts. Ebay. Friday night, shut in. Bought.

Found this record at Academy today. Score! Came with "Scenario" ( Young Nation Mix ).

And yes, this is a no brainer.

B.D.'s "mothafuck! my enemies". Love this kid- AUTUMN RIP. Hey if all these other rappers are trying to front/cashing in on that "skateboard lifestyle" at least have a real skateboarder out there reppin' their music shit. I also enjoy how non serious this video is.

In the year 2013. This is pretty cool. Yes it looks like a colored hot glue gun but because it's melted ABS ( plastic material that is used everywhere ) it's a pretty interesting idea. And most likely the things you would make wouldn't immediately disintegrate or fall apart. It's like creating a different kind of brush, you got your fine liners, your huge markers, and now a 3doodler. Very interesting. 

Who wants to watch a bunch of baby tigers falling all over the place? An unprecedented look into the life of tigers.

Did he really think nobody would notice?

The folks at Guy Fieri's American Kitchen & Bar — you know, the Times Square restaurant that was eviscerated by The New York Times — apparently forgot to buy up domain names related to the brand name.
The real website for Fieri's restaurant is, however, doesn't take you to a Fieri-owned website. 
Now someone has put up a funny parody menu of Fieri's restaurant at the site, loaded with offerings like Captain Beefheart and Football: The Meal.
We realize there are a lot of variations of a domain name that pranksters can hijack, but c'mon man — it doesn't get any more simple than the actual name of the restaurant.
UPDATE: It appears that programmer Bryan Mytko is the man who snatched up the domain name. Well played, sir.

Football: The Meal $19.95... Warm, broken hamburgers served in a clear plastic bag enclosed in a larger, black trash bag . Thrown at you from 40 yards.

Thanks to Autumn Dave for this gem.

Rihanna for River Island. One question comes to mind, is it not cool for women to wear pants or bras anymore?  Unless you got a tiny ass waifish body, it would be hard to pull a lot of these looks off without having washboard, inverted model abs. Surprised to see as much "streetwear" influences there is with hair, make up, jewelry, and overall aesthetic, there's not one wearable sneaker? Especially with the current sneaker-wedge bullshit craze. Every single shoe I saw was a sky scraping stiletto or had an exaggerated platform. Also, when the fuck would you wear half these outfits unless you were performing in a god damn strip club or being brought to a special Valentines date night at McDonalds? Shit is a trap! I laughed out loud when I saw that model with the red Baywatch one piece come out. Really? You forgot to dress yourself. I'm not hating. I'm just asking the universe some pretty reasonable questions.

All these National holidays and not one holiday for Native Americans. And Thanksgiving definitely doesn't count. Lame, America. Lame.

Been watching multiple Ted Talks on my day off. Looked up the top 20 talks and this one was at the very top. Super interesting. The topic being : Do schools kill creativity? Suddenly degrees aren't worth anything. People are graduating at record numbers, yet there are probably less jobs available now than when people weren't graduating at record numbers. The current problems of academic inflation and institutionalized concepts of "education" are built towards global realities and career expectations that are just not there anymore. This guy nails it on so many levels.

I think it's pretty official.. I'm going to spam my own blog with oversized 411 clips I don't know how to make smaller.

Ugh. GINO switch flip down that double set in LA. I wish that one clip was by itself. So perfect. So steezy.

411VM about to be all up on

Vivian Maier. A pioneering street photographer who left this world without letting anyone know she took photos at all.

Haha! Why is this so funny to me.


HAHA. this interview is pretty funny.


Due to a poor decision of a multiple cheap well whiskey happy hour, the last 12 hours have been hangover central. Hulu's got a dope Criterion Collection of movies on stream over the long weekend, so my room has been beaming non stop with angry Samurais, high priests, and Meiji era fighting. Thanks to Vlad for posting this on facebook. Hippie jumps, old Union Square, and Joe Valdez being Joe Valdez. All I need is another nostalgic SF, 90's era skate video to pretend like I'm not 28. Although gotta feel blessed at the same time. Despite the bullshit sometimes, life is good. 

RIP Trevor Prescott and RIP Harold Hunter.
