Happy 4th of July!

with a bizarrely frightening message courtesy of the CPSC:

I’m not sure if I’m more scared of the fireworks or the manequines. Either way, have a good Fourth!

Inspiration: Cena7 & Emol

I’ve been captivated by this video and felt the need to share. Captivating because of the work, the music, and the video editing quality. Doesn’t usually work out that way. Cool stuff. Check out more Cena7 at his flickr page. And I wish I had a good link of Emol’s work… it absolutely blows me away.

Discovery Channel says the world is awesome

Just incase you haven’t seen it, check out this relatively new spot for the Discovery Channel. It’s pretty catchy in that whole-world sort of a way. And every time I stumble across it, it makes me smile a bit. Pretty simple, but pretty awesome.

Art meets shoes: Nike loves Mondrian

mondrian dunk

Anyone who knows me well knows of my affinity (a.k.a. problem) for shoes. And many are also aware of my love of art. While I certainly consider many shoes art, they don’t usually go hand-in-hand. But this past week, Nike released a new SB Dunk styled after the work of Piet Mondrian.

It’s cool to see Nike pay homage to great artists (even if it is just to get a cool colorway out of it), and it’s also cool to see people not familiar with the work of Mondrian getting exposed to it via hyped shoes.
There are rumors floating around that the Mondrian Dunk may be the first in a series of artist-inspired Dunks… I can only hope. Either way, it’s uplifting to see De Stijl on a Dunk.

Guy Ritchie is my hero: A New Nike Spot

I’m a big Guy Ritchie fan, so it probably doesn’t come as much of a surprise that I’m elated with the newest Nike spot directed by Ritchie, “Take it to the next level.” Despite feeling a bit Prodigy-ish, it’s a cool short film, and it’s definitely carrying Nike in the direction they’re seeming to want to gravitate toward. A high-res version is on the Nike Football site right now. Monumental? maybe. Cool? Definitely.
