STONE ISLAND COLOR CHANGING PARKA!?

Posted in Design, Fashion on July 21, 2009 by strikewithnumbers

Apparently this jacket changes colors depending on the temperature, it turns from this bright royal blue to a darker shade of blue when the weather drops below 15 degrees faranheit.. Not very useful here in CALI but still a nice touch for those in cooler temps this winter. I still think ACRYONYM‘S GT-J11X and L-J11X are still far more stellar.

For those who haven’t seen it, here’s what that shit does…

Peep the visuals… nice little summer video.  Haha, funny how Kanye’s been sportin’ timbs, never really seen a rap artist wear a fitted attire and rock a pair of 6″ timbos…

MAN…. LONG ASS DAY… LONG ASS WEEKEND…

Posted in Daily on July 20, 2009 by strikewithnumbers

OH MAN. How fuckin’ drained I’m feelin’ right now… Hella wanna just hit the iron gym and do a couple pullups but I’m pretty pooped. BBQ’d all weekend with fellow JC staff members, and hung out with some distant, yet close friends in Arcadia on Saturday… It was a major struggle gettin’ my ass up at 6:30am this morning for sure… Seriously felt like 2 ton bricks were piled on my back, not to mention this damn heatwave….. Finally got back home at around 8 after eating some Todai with my boss… Gotta say, for a sushi buffet, that was worth every damn penny. Sashimi up the ying yang… Gotta say, Salmon’s gotta compete with Tuna Tataki now… shit’s like a steak… but pescadarian style.. I’ve pretty much been stuffin’ my face all damn weekend… Good looks to Lennard for putting together another bomb ass food stuffing alley parking lot binge drinking bash… It was dope to meet some heads from around the neighboring shops also… What more is there to ask for this summer? All in all I’m exhausted… gonna try to workout some… and prolly pass the fuck out until tomorrow morn…

Here’s Marvin’ Gaye – I heard it through the grapevine.

PEACE!!
