Adidas with Surface 2 Air vs Upper Playground Comments | May 31 2008

Adidas Originals hooked up the Left-Right Project a web film which documented a art/design competition between artists from Surface 2 Air (NYC) and Upper Playground (San Francisco). The idea is amazing, the art is one of a kind and the film is fun. YE! If only I could get one of the super size shoes…

Terry Richardson Does Belvedere Comments | May 31 2008

TerryDoesBelvedereTerryDoesBelvedere

Word on the street Terry Richardson is doin’ work on the new Belvedere Vodka campaign. A few samples are above. One of the best aspects is how even for such a large scale campaign spanning print, web and TV Terry is able to keep shit legit carrying over his artistic style of in you face photography and meshing it into a more commercial form of photography. Terry mentioned “They really allowed me to put my own spin on the campaign.” For more information on Terry or the campaign check the Belvedere site and look in Discover Luxury Reborn where they have a dedicated section for Terry Richardson, Vincent Gallo and RZA.

Canadian Mens Wear Comments | May 28 2008

I know that there are great boutiques through out Canada but the two that come to my mind when I hear the term mens wear are Nomad Shop - Toronto and Reborn - Montreal. These two stores carry progressive international labels only found in a select boutique’s throughout the world. Some of my favorite labels brought to Canada by one or the other of these two stores are Comme des GarçonsCommon ProjectsCorpus ClothingNom De GuerreRobert GellerRoganSupremeSurface To Air, Visvim and W+H all available at Nomad Shop. At Reborn we have Henrik VibskovFifth Avenue Shoe RepairRaf Simons.

 I have never yet been to Reborn however Nomad is one of the best stores in Toronto I feel. Great service, great labels and a very humble interior.

Veer - Typography Comments | May 27 2008

Veer - Typography

I’ve recently been looking threw a lot of typography and one site that seems to have it all is Veer. It’s a website that not just sells fonts but a lot of other useful things like photography, illustrations and merchandise. One item I really enjoy is the umbrella, it’s extremly classic with a hint of contemporary style created with the inside typography.

Veer - Umbrella

You can buy the umbrella at the Veer website under merchandise.

OH SNAP!!

So you want some electro crunk? OH SNAP!! does exactly that, his music is nothing more than good tunes to jam to… What else is there to say about a a guy rapping about being “too fat to be a hipster” … except maybe the word hipster is too frequently used and is just a shitty word hollow… I’m also Diggin’ the Hostage RMX of Bill Cosby Sweater by OH SNAP!!

Music Sampling Comments | May 23 2008

I am currently taking Issues in Popular Music and last class we were discussing sampling music and whether or not it is less original / creative than a fully new and original song. On that note here is a pretty interesting example of the progression of music and the use of sampling.
