Nike SB Dunk High - Unlreleased Sample

I really don't get why Nike does this. This would be a pair of SB's I would actually cop. Nothing like sorry excuses for SB releases over the past few years. When are they going to realize that the flashy, multi-colored, wack designs they've been pushing aren't gonna cut it. Just give us some simple colorways like the pair seen above and it will all be good. Hit the jump for more pics.

No this isn't a cruel joke. Surprisingly it isn't even half bad, iTunes worthy actually. According to Ron this was recorded last June prior to his signing with LA. Not so sure this track would have ever surface if he stayed with Houston. Anyways download link below.

Lakers vs. Celtics Game 7 Highlights

Glad to see Kobe get his fifth. He needs to get Phil to stay and get another three-peat.

Game 7

It's that time... Game 7 of the NBA Finals is here. Featuring two of the most successful sports franchises in sports history, the Los Angeles Lakers and the Boston Celtics will go at it tonight inside the Staples Center in LA. What's on the line you ask? The Lakers are aiming for their 16th NBA Championship and Kobe's fifth which will surely cement him among the top of the top of professional basketball players. The Celtics on the other hand are trying to get their hands on their 18th Championship while aging veterans like KG, Sheed, Ray Allen and Pierce are trying to cement their own legacy in Boston before their careers end which could be sooner then a lot of people think if Boston can't win tonight.

Anyways, as far as the outcome of tonights game I don't see how anybody could bet against Kobe and LA in a Game 7, and in their home building at that. And yes I know Boston is a decent road team but come on...

Lol Wow

Dont get me wrong I hate cops just as much as everybody else does, but shit what are you supposed to do in this situation? Yes he probably could have just pushed that "Seventeen" (yes seventeen, not to be mistaken for a WNBA player) year old girl away instead of serving her with a right jab to the dome but still... Look what jaywalking can get you into lol. You can read the full story behind all this at Komo News.

Fice - Two Five Three

This shit right here? This is some of that real smooth melodic summer shit. The homie Fice pays homage to the 253 aka The Tac aka Tac-Town aka Tacompton aka Tacoma. He shows love to everywhere from Lakewood all the way to my own stomping grounds on Proctor St. Dedication tracks are usually hit or miss especially when referring to one's city, but Fice creates a vivid image in your head and for those who may not be to familiar with certain areas the song makes you feel like its your neighborhood too. Download link below, be sure to be on the lookout for that Two Five Three video too.

Hm...

Take a look at the "new" LDRS logo seen on the two caps above and then take a look at the LRG belt buckle below and let me know if you see any similarities...
Don't take this post the wrong way, I am just merely sharing with the world my feelings on LDRS new fitteds, not to be mistaken for insulting or putting on blast. I am a huge LDRS fan and to be honest my favorite fitted cap I've ever owned came from Chicago courtesy of them.

I just think the execution could have been better...

Xbox 360 Slim

Via: Gamespot

Microsoft's showstopping closer for its Electronic Entertainment Expo press conference this morning was the unveiling of the most dramatic Xbox 360 hardware revision since the console launched in November 2005. Equipped with built-in N-wireless connectivity, a 45nm CPU and GPU, the new slimline 250GB Xbox 360 will include a built-in port for the Kinect motion-sensing system and a $300 price tag.

The new Xbox 360 is edging out its elder siblings.
The price tag of the current Xbox 360 Elite model is $300, which includes a 120GB hard drive and a comparatively bulky exterior. That model, which includes no wireless functionality, is getting a $50 price cut effective immediately. The $200 Arcade model, which doesn't even include a hard drive, is being similarly discounted, and will now only cost $150.

The $300 Xbox 360 slim will be the sole model for a while.
Ryan Moore, product marketing manager for Xbox, told GameSpot that both models are also being discontinued. Once they leave the retail channel, the new slimline Xbox 360 will be the sole Xbox mode on the market--for a time. Moore said that Microsoft is currently working on a second new Xbox 360, which will be offered at the arcade's price point of $200. He declined to say what functionalities the cheaper model would or would not have.

Nike Air Force 1 Foamposite High

Nike has continued the much overused hybrid concept and has fused together the Nike Air Force 1 High and the Foamposite. We now have some detailed shots so read the little bio on the shoe below then hit the jump for more pics.
“It’s a dream come true. This Fall, Nike resurrects the out-of-this-world technology of 1997’s Foamposite matching up with a true footwear icon. Originally found on the feet of NBA superstars as well as forward-thinking East Coast urbanites, Foamposite utilized a then groundbreaking two-mold process, delivering an unprecedented upper shape, color and feel giving the shoe a truly futuristic look. It delivered on a new level of performance durability, support and protection. To satisfy the craving that’s persisted since the end of the twentieth century, Nike brings back Foamposite, combining it with the Air Force 1, for an absolutely seamless new slice of basketball footwear.

The legendary AF1, born in 1982 when Bruce Kilgore introduced Nike Air to the game of basketball, is a classic hoop shoe, adopted for the streets and for its style. It’s the sneakerhead’s sneaker, and has been evolving ever since. This evolution sees Nike bring together the best of both worlds. Significant creative thinking and new engineering to create a three-mold process that eliminates the seams on the upper. The shoe also draws on the original Foamposite design, utilizing a midsole that allows consumers a window into the soul of the shoe. Seamless Foamposite, in an Air Force 1.”

The only question is...

iPhone 4 or Blackberry 9800? After seeing pics of the iPhone 4 I was basically sold as a newborn AT&T customer but after seeing these pics of the 9800 I might think twice about that, especially being the Blackberry loving guy that I am. Check out the pics below and if you haven't already peep the iPhone 4 and lemme know which you think is the better phone.

Apple iPhone 4


Apple just unveiled the iPhone 4 and the only thing I have to say about this is bye T-Mobile!!!
“iPhone 4 is the biggest leap since the original iPhone,” said Steve Jobs, Apple’s CEO. “FaceTime video calling sets a new standard for mobile communication, and our new Retina display is the highest resolution display ever in a phone, with text looking like it does on a fine printed page. We have been dreaming about both of these breakthroughs for decades.”
Check out all the features in their entirety at here. More pics after the jump.

Wow

Sometimes Jordan Brand really amazes me. The pair of Jordan's you see above were spotted at the Kicks Lounge event the other day and feature a complete black pony hair upper really giving them the nickname "Black Cats". I don't really know how I feel about these and probably wouldn't ever wear those but I like the concept.

Casio G-Shock x Dee & Ricky GA110DR-1A

The eccentric Lego jeweler's Dee & Ricky have teamed up with Casio to put their own spin on the latest G-Shock model, the GA110DR-1A.

Via: High Snobiety
“Dee & Ricky, the New York based fashion design duo, have lent their trademark retro style to the latest edition to the G-Shock Family, the GA110DR-1A. This limited edition chronograph perfectly pairs an extra-large analog/digital with the Dee & Ricky design sensibility seen on fashion runways and metropolitan sidewalks worldwide.

The GA110DR-1A uses rudimentary building blocks as a starting point, the design draws on primary colors to mimic the appearance of a toy watch. Like the duo’s signature Lego®-based designs, all the details pop against the black backdrop. A never seen G-Shock technique combines contrasting LCDs, gear-shaped hands and other parts to create a distinct multidimensional effect exclusive to the GA110DR- 1A. To further customize the timepiece, the Dee & Ricky logo appears on the band and the engraved backcase features the Dee & Ricky caricature.

Remaining rooted in G-Shock technology, the Dee & Ricky X G-Shock is JIS Class Level I magnetic resistant to protect against the effects of magnetic fields often found in airport metal detectors. Additional GA110 features include shock resistance, 200M water resistance, Auto LED Light with Afterglow, 48 City World Time, 1/1000th Stopwatch with speed indicator, and 4 Daily Alarms and 1 Snooze Alarm, Auto Calendar and Hourly Time Signal.”

Ken Griffey Jr. to return to Mariner's in a "long term role" ... not as player tho

Via: Sports Illustrated
That's not to say he will never be heard from again in Seattle. Goldberg said Griffey will be back in the near future working with the team in a long-term job to be determined.

"I promise you, he will be around plenty,'' Goldberg said. "Actually, this is something that started getting discussed while he was still playing,'' he said of the job with the team.

He said Griffey's new role is going to be long term. Goldberg said it's unlikely to be one that has Griffey in uniform daily as a coach, at least no
t initially.

The agent also said Griffey will return this season for a formal goodbye and retirement ceremony in Seattle.

"Seattle's fans will have the chance to see him and honor him,'' Goldberg said.

Mariners spokesman Tim Hevly says the team welcomes opportunities for Griffey to return but that plans are far from finalized.

Ken Griffey Jr. To Announce Retirement

Via: ESPN
Seattle Mariners manager Don Wakamatsu says Ken Griffey Jr. is retiring.

Wakamatsu made the announcement before Wednesday night's game against Minnesota. Griffey's retirement is effective immediately.

The 40-year-old Griffey was one of baseball's greatest players before injuries began to take their toll. The perennial All-Star outfielder ranks fifth on the career home run list with 630.

Griffey was hitting only .184 this season and recently went a week without playing.
Goodbye Seattle, hello Cooperstown.

Oh the good 'ol days for Seattle baseball. Although I was only four years old at the time I still remember the ending to this game like it was yesterday. My love for baseball began after this game as did my love for the Mariners. So long Junior.

BMW Art Car by Jeff Koons

Too fuckin ill. Peep the story behind this work of art after the jump.
“At the premiere of the 17th BMW Art Car Jeff Koons unveiled and signed his car in front of 300 international VIP guests on June 1 in the Centre Pompidou, one of the world’s most prestigious cultural institutions for modern and contemporary art.

At 5.30 pm Jeff Koons will participate in a book signing at the official book store of the museum before he will talk about his work in conversation with Alain Seban, President of the Centre Pompidou, at 6 pm at the Forum of the museum.”
