In honor of the Pittsburgh Penguins making it to the Finals another year, I figured I’d post up some lovely shoes from the Nike Livestrong Collection, all in Pgh’s fav colorways. I’m not a big fan of the Air Footscape Wovens, but, hey, whatever floats your boat or finds your lost remote, y’know. Original pics from Freshness Mag.

For all of y’all literary types who fancy big, sprawling books…it doesn’t get much bigger, or more sprawling than this within contemporary letters (well, maybe this, but…): Join in and read one of the great texts from the late David Foster Wallace, Infinite Jest. With groups on the Twitter and the Facebook helping with motivation there is no better time than the present.
People say stuff like this out of the side of their mouth all the time, but this book changed my life, introduced me to a different way of viewing the world, tied me to other people in a way no other book has done. Yes, there are over a thousand pages here, but contrary to what many critics have said, there is not a word out of place, nothing superfluous here, I promise. Thanks, Dave, we miss you.

And but so, it continues to be a ridiculous year for the Air Max 90…you’know, whole 20th anniversary and all. These Black Hologram Sparkle 90s are lovely, and since there are only 25 pairs made, you’ll never have them (well, you can head to Osneaker, but other that that…). It’s good to dream, though, like, for instance, last night I dreamt that my eyeball swallowed outside reality, and vomited a perfect representation of it into my mind-stuff…or, wait, maybe I read that somewhere…or, maybe, my mind-stuff vomited the world into my eye, or eye-mind…or maybe Kant just touched me inappropriately in my dream, with Locke just standing there all creepy in the background…

I have no idea how long this will last, but if you move quickly and head to Michel Gondry’s website, he’ll draw your portrait for $19.95. That is, if you submit a photo of yourself, in a couple months time you’ll be the proud owner of a caricature of yourself done by the very, very talented Mr. Gondry, who if you aren’t aware, has directed some stellar films, like Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind and Be Kind Rewind, among other projects…Sweet deal, hurry up, because the piece of shit you picked up at auction last year is worth 1/100 of the money you thought it was.
You’ve just gotta watch this, if you are one of the four people who haven’t already. It kinda sucks Vince got his tongue bit by a pros, and then beat her up, I was enjoying the Offer v. Mays infomercial battle. Oh well, you’re gonna love his nuts anyhow…unless he owes you money.
Okay, so even though these are fancy ass Air Max 90s from the Stage Collection, featuring Livestrong accents, and a small production release (150 pairs worldwide, I thinks), I really just like ’em because they match Pittsburgh sports teams’ colors. Now let’s go up 3-2 in the series, Pens, come on! (Regarding the shoes, Mentalkicks has a couple sizes in if you have the dough.)
