ACTION BRONSON & STATIK SELEKTAH – NOT ENOUGH WORDS

The latest single from Action Bronson and Statik Selektah’s upcoming collabo album. Aptly titled “Well Done”. The rap artists bring their gusto style together to. Both have been growing notoriety for the collabs the two do. So it’s fitting to see a project emerge from them. Especially Action who’s pushing this ’ Other white boy’ era as much as anyone we can think of. The album drops the 22nd of this month.

Does Jay-Z Have An Occupy Wall Street Hustle?

Seems the “God MC” perhaps may be a greedy leech if reports are true that he has created a line of t-shirts that profit from the protests that are happening down in New York City’s Wall Street district. Monikered “Occupy All Streets”; Jay-Z fashion imprint Rocawear has them currently available for pre-order via their website. What is unclear, and is more than warranted the benefit of the doubt for Jay-Z is whether or not the proceeds of said merchandise will be giving, split, or fund the cause. One would hope that there is an explanation, and one that is not oppourtunistic soley from Jay-z on the subject. Money is money, but you can’t accept every dollar.

D Wade has definitely become one of the fashion icons in the new NBA. In an era of super athletes on super teams. No one puts on a show like D Wade. Since the NBA lockout draws on, and a season hangs in the balance. It’s a good thing that Miami’s #3 is busy. He has a partnership with Hublot as a brand ambassador. Currently they are working with the super star NBA baller to release a “D-Wade” King Power model watch. The 48mm black, micro-blasted ceramic case features a “basketball effect” on the face and strap stitching. If it reminds you of a basketball net, then you get the toy in the box association.  You will find the design use of Wade’s # 3 deliberately detailed into the piece. This is a one off piece as only 500 watches will be brought to existence. Proceeds for this luxury watch go towards Wade’s ‘The Wade World Foundation’.


The Jordan Brand yesterday released three variants of the Air Jordan 1 KO Premiums. As a signature, each pair of these sneakers offers up a monochromatic upper, and a red Jumpman patch on the tongue.

The new Lebron 9 color way comes in Black synthetic, complimented with silver and orange trim. Orange being a favorite color of mine is prominent on the sneaker. You can see it i the Swoosh, midsole, and areas where the branding is as well. Mind you this may not be a sneaker to floss in, but depending on your style, and focus.

As a gamer the environment you play in is pivotal to your experience, and comfort. Hours upon hours can go by, and your living abode tells much of your personality. Does not matter if you are in a dorm room, or architectural masterpiece you call home. With gaming home our hope is to inspire, be inspired by what you think should make up the home, and theater.  For instance in September  LEGO released the LEGO Architecture series in Frank Lloyd Wright’s Robie House.

The home which was Built in Chicago 1910, this is one of the most influential, and great examples of architecture. Not only in America, but around the world. Lego for their part is doing things outside of the box that is creative. As a gamer this can be inspiring a piece to put in your home. Sparking interest, or just looking at the creativity with many of the Lego games you may own that follow the philosophy of Lego’s genre bending.  LEGO brings us the Farnsworth House, a design done by Ludwig Mies van der Rohe, and the Guggenheim Museum, designed by Wright both are great collections.

 

Come February 2012 both nation wide, and globally at select retailers, the band Gorillaz will have a collection of Converse All Star Chucks in various styles. Designed by band co-creator Jamie Hewlett; the collection will have variant designs with artwork from the band over the years, and projects.  To give the collection a nice uniform identity each will offer a heel tab, and hangtag as well as several other notable details.

On November 17th Legendary artist Ron English will have a collection of tee’s released in collaboration with The Hundreds. There will be an in-store meet & greet/signing at The Hundreds Santa Monica store set for the 2oth. The “capsule” collection will feature a unique set of graphic tee’s such as “Rabbit”, “Smiley”, and “Cowgirl”. The unique graphics really push the collection off beat, and provocative in execution.

I won’t assume that many gamer’s would be into Christian Louboutin, or know of the fashion brand. So from a fashion sensibility I won’t speak much on the “No Limit” Mens Flat. Reason being is that someone who will not just purchase, but make the sneaker work may be more on the cos-play side than the gaming one. Nonetheless these flats do make an impact. From the studs on the front, stones on the sides, there’s much going on with the sneaker.  Louboutin always finds ways pushes the envelope in terms of design. Trying to get every thing they do to be unique, and signature. This is not dissimilar from some of the best game developers who continue to push the envelope in gaming content. Still a stretch for the everyday gamer though.

 

This is the first time we’ve ever posted anything on biking. Let alone a bike helmet. Well this one is interesting, and it’s been brought to us by the fine folks @ Gucci. I dig the helmet. I doubt I’d ride bikes with them on though. I’ll think of something to tell my girl.  Teaming up with Italian bike manufacturer, Bianchi. The Gucci style imprint is all over signature. Right down to the leather straps. Made for comfort, and stunting. USD $890, the helmet releases in two sizes, medium and large. For you collectors; these are one of a kind pieces. Gucci!
