According to Engadget, NTT DoCoMo an asian electronics company (?) has been testing out eye controlled music.
"By rolling one's eyes and jerking them from side to side, the outfit is hoping to have the corresponding music player change tracks and get louder / softer"Too funny.
Nike SB's newest release is popping up at some NikeSB retailers. This drop is somewhat unexciting but you know and I know all those "SB-heads" are going to cop it just because it's Nike SB. Then "skate" them. Hahaaaa. Anyway. Here it goes. The pack consists of a Nike SB mid, which Nike is still strugguling to resurrect; a low SB, and a Blazer which Nike has been having success with.
As you know I go on Hypebeast everyday. Usually a few things catch my eye and I post them here, such as this. The Nike SB Summer Accessories. The Nike Eugene backpack which is plastered in an interesting assortment of colors. I'd get this for school but I don't want any funny looks... Nobody in college carries books!?!? Right?

We've seen Kobe jump over an Aston Martin in some Hyperdunks. A pool of snakes. We've seen Leroy make Terry eat his shorts in Hyperdunks. And now, the Hyperdunk Olympic editions are coming out. And they're limited so you know they're going to cause madness.
On Saturday July 26th, the Olympic Hyperdunks will release at Harlem's House of Hoops (by Footlocker) representing teams from around the world including: Argentina, Australia, China, Germany, Lithuania, Russia, Spain, and Puerto Rico. Only 24 per country will be released. They're $125
Argentina clearly takes the cake on these with their typical mellow blue. Puerto Rico and Spain are cool also.House of Hoops

I would say 90% of my sneakers is Nike. Nike dominates my collection. But... I can respect that there are other brands out there that put out stuff I could see myself wearing. Asics has some hot stuff. The Gel Lytes were hot in the 80s. Asics makes good use of purple, all the time. Here we go, the Asics Gel Lyte III summer release has dropped at Footlockers Worldwide.
I feel really weird using the "Brand x Brand" cliche but it's whatever. Puma has teamed with Atmos and National Geographic photographer Mitsuaki Iwago, to bring the Asia Pack to us. Each insole has a picture of an endangered animal. It includes two Clydes and one Mid. Available at Atmos on July 28th.

Ugly. One word I use to describe these sneakers. The Nike Questlove aka. Air Questo Air Force 1 aka Uptown features an elephant print midsole and eyelets with red uppers and toebox. The color scheme just doesn't go. It looks like a watermelon, but then it doesn't. Nonetheless, these are limited so of course the machine has started grinding and people are going crazy.
These were designed by ?uestlove of The Roots and will come out at Alife / ARC on August 1st. After that, these will release at Ubiq on August 5th and the Montalban on August 6th.

Whether you like the eccentric and somewhat heated designs of Mishka or not, there is no denying that they have changed the game by doing this. Mishka has came out with a new Mishka Custom Shop. You can custom your own Mishka shirt like NikeID or Mongolian Shoe BBQ by choosing what color the shirt should be, the text, the face of the bear on the design, and you can put your name on the tag.
Whether you use this or not, it's not hard to tell this will force other brands to step their game up. The Mishka Custom Shop is definitely innovative. Shirts are 39.99 ~ http://mishkanyc.ltd-ltd-ltd.com/
It seems our favorite raspy voiced, demanding, aggressive rapper is always in trouble. Once again, DMX has been indicted on felony charges in Arizona. The rapper who seems to always be in trouble with the law, used a fake name Troy Jones when he went to the Mayo Clinic in Scottsdale, AZ instead of his real name Earl Simmons.
The Kicker: He was arrested while shopping at the mall...
Felony Charges = Theft, Identity Theft.
I know this probably just feeds the hype machine and will just cause more people to refresh and try to get the shirts but... Whatever.
Diamond Legends Pack. Today. 3:00PM for us Eastern folk 12:00 for Westerners. At shop.diamondsupplyco.com
Shirts are $34 and there is 30 of each colorway. Smalls and Mediums will go quicker.

If you listen to the Wendy Williams experience, you know about the show she has on Fox at 10AM EST. The show is on at a weird time but has been creating a buzz over the episode with Omarosa from the first Apprentice with Donald Trump and Celebrity Apprentice. Omarosa is just such a horrible person for going on the Wendy Williams show and trying to be the nasty person she is. She was supposed to be talking about her book but definitely started up some stuff. Check the video

Nasty Nas' album "Untitled" has topped the billboard charts selling 187,000 copies this week giving him the #1 Spot over Lil' Waynes unnecessarily hyped album Tha Carter III. Still Lil' Wayne continues to chill at the top of the billboard charts at number 2 after selling "A Millie" in the first week. The other albums on the chart are some wack rock albums. Hip Hop reigns Supreme.
Dr. Dre started recording The Detox in 2003 and it was slated for a 2004 release. It's now 2008 and The Detox is slowly becoming more of a joke than an anticipated album. In an interview with USA Today he stated that he's just becoming comfortable with the tracks on the album, being the perfectionist that he is. Afterall, The Chronic was an album that raised the bar for producers at that time. On the album will be collaborations with rappers like Nas, Jay-Z, and even Lil' Wayne. He's "shooting for November or December" so you know that means 2009.
Well, ever since I restarted this blog, I've been looking at the stats and apparently I'm getting some good results. I'm getting more and more return visitors everyday which means people are checking the blog. That's what counts, the people who come back. I'm really trying to get this blog's unique visitor per day count up to 100 within a week so if you are interested in a promotion deal or use something from this blog, link back to it. Peace
I have two hats that have dust all over them. And they're black. And they both cost over 40 dollars. I left them on top my closet at school because I don't wear hats a lot. I retired them but I think they might have to come back like the 45 thanks to this: New Era has started refreshing hats according to StrictlyFitteds. You can bring your New Era hats to any flagship store to get it refreshed using pressurized steam and sizing blocks to restore it back to original size and freshness. 5$ a hat is the price.

Jordan Brand is continuing in their rude, ugly, mashup of sneakers by creating the AJ 6Rings. This shoe, off first glance combines the VII, VIII, X, XII, XIII, and XIV. A bunch of celebrities including Port Authur's Bun B (of UGK) have been seen wearing these kicks. These are the Olympic editions. Buy at your own disgresion.
This will be a short entry. The Diamond Supply Co. much anticipated legends pack will release this Thursday at 12:00PM PST which is 3:00PM here in New York and any other east coast states. I know posting something like this just creates more hassle in getting it on the day of but whatever... Have fun refreshing...

Well this has nothing to do with flying cars, sorry. But soon there will be conversations like this Thanks to GM:
Boss: "Tucker, you're late"
Tucker: "Sorry Mr. Thompson, I had to take the bus today"
Boss: "Why is that? Don't you have that new fangled car"
Tucker: "I forgot to plug it in after I came back from the bar last night"
GM is down in the dumps right now since they can't seem to make gas friendly cars. Foreign automakers Honda and Toyota are cleaning up the market with cars like the Civic and Prius and Camry. GM has teamed up with the Electric Power Research Institute and 30 utilities in 37 states to produce a charging infrastructure for electric cars that can be put in parking garages, curbside meters, backyards, etc... Of course it will have to be child safe or else there will be a lot of smoking babies.

After opening stores in Boston and Australia, the Apple bug has hit China!?!?! OMGWTFGTFOBBQ. Yup, Apple opened a store in Beijing last friday probably to profit off the increased amount of people that will be there for the Olympics. While Nike releases sneakers to profit off the Olympics, Apple opens whole stores. Crazy.
Now they can finally stop bootlegging the iPhone... Sheesh.
The Trapdoor Toaster has taken the pop out of toasting bread (if you use one of those toasters). Instead of popping the bread, bagel, roll, etc... up, it ejects them through the bottom onto a tray. If you actually enjoyed sitting there waiting for your food to pop up, this could be disappointing to you.From Engadget
If you're a designer, you're definitely familiar with Pantone colors and charts for getting your printer to use the exact color you want. If you know me, you know I'm a sucker for Air Max 1s and Air Maxes in general. Nike has combined the two to create the Pantone Pack, now available at Kix-Files. The Air Max 1's are legit.
Everyone is familiar with Nike SB and Nike in general but people sleep on other sneaker brands. In an attempt to diversity some of the Nike whores (myself included) I post these, the Puma First Round Skate. Obviously Puma has included thicker tongue and collar lining to optimize the sneaker for skating. And the suede is sexy
After Alife's sell out collab with Nas to celebrate Untitled, Alife this time teams up with Q-Tip to create another simple, yet clean tee. According to HighSnobiety this will only be sold at the Rock the Bells concert (which I don't have tickets to). The same procedure was supposed to be followed for the Diamond Raekwon tee that came out July 4th weekend but that didn't happened. Lucky Rock the Bells attenders get these.
If you didn't know Nas signed with Fila, you need to get out of that rock you are under. Anyway, Nas signed with Fila because I guess they identified the hype that would be around him. His deal has resulted in these sneakers. Not the old school Filas I was looking for but whatever. I am waiting for the clothing to come out if they decide to do any with him. Has Nas sold himself to the corporate machine?

Nas is up on Alife. I've been up on it for 4 years. You should be do. Alife has teamed up with Reebok to bring you these collaborations. Alife's collabs are always serious, sometimes simple sometimes crazy. The first set of kicks came out on the 12th and another set came out this past Saturday the 19th. The tees are exclusively available at Alife

Who would have though, Nike the big bad sneaker powerhouse, would duck out of a situation like this? Of course this is all over blogs today but Nike has recalled their Air Stab shoe in the UK in response to a wave of over 5000 stabbings in the UK from shoplifting to cold blood. A real soft move by Nike if you ask me. Especially because the shoe stands for Air Stab[ility] not Air Stab [ikillyou]
Here are the Nike Air Yeezys. Most people have never heard of them and most people still don't know when they drop. Just the name show's either Kanye is still obsessed with himself or that Nike happens to like nuts (possible typo). I present to you people who don't know, the Nike Air Yeezy. Possible November release? Will they ever be released? Who knows.
Oscar Pistorius is a sprinter who tried out for the South African Olympic team. Sounds legit right? Check it. He has no legs. Instead, he has two metal things that are supposed to replace his legs. People with prostetic and bionic legs is cool and all but I think that he definitely has the unfair advantage sprinting in these. He doesn't get the pain in his fake legs which definitley affects any sprinter mentally and physically. How did he even get to try out?
Huf, a solid brand out of SF Cali, is coming out with these hats. The tees are nothing special but I absolutely love Huf hats. They came out with an all 3M reflective hat last year that was just amazing. These are pretty good too. I love that color blue they use. I wonder when DQM will get these.
