The mini Rastafarian, Nyjah Huston, is back on Element. After a brief vacation from the brand, Jah guided him back. How the hell do you skate with that much style & control sporting a head full of moldy-locks weighing 30 lbs?
Brandon Westgate’s new shoe from Emerica just dropped. Things are looking really amazing for the young one.
The Gorilla Biscuits were a great band. A NYC hardcore vegan, straight-edge band I had on heavy tape rotation back in the early 90s. They’ve influenced countless bands, not to mention, their members have gone on to form Quiksand, Rival Schools and CIV. Vans has teamed up with the Biscuits to release a shoe dedicated to the way they paved the New York hardcore scene.
Dead Space 2 just dropped. I had a chance to tinker with the demo a few weeks back, and it’s amazing. If you’re into creeping around in dimly lit corridors (not in real life … because then you would be a creep … and should seek metal health help asap), while scary half-dead monsters try to liberate your head from your body – this is the game for you.
Ergo is a new clothing brand on the scene. The Low Rez board short has that 80′s video game vibe all the kids seem to love. That may or may not be a true statement. At this point tonight, I’m just trying to fill space with words.
Turn your iPad into a mini stand-up arcade. This is hot-off-the-press from the Consumer Electronics Show that just went down in Vegas. It looks like it will be out in April. I wonder how many AWSM readers even remember going to the arcade to play games? Seeing as how cell phones now have better graphics …. I’m guessing not many.
Ronin is one of my favorite movies. Starring Robert De Niro as an ex CIA gun for hire, the film had some sweet car chases in an Audi S8. This has nothing to do with the Adidas shoe, except for the name. Well … the shoe’s red … and there was a lot of blood spilled in the movie … so I guess that’s something.
KR3W now makes watches. Here’s a great example.
Pat Moore has a new goggle out. It features a scratch-off coating, letting you customize your goggles. I like this idea. I do think a scratch & sniff goggle would be cooler. Although with Pat being about as Irish as they come, it would just smell like drunk.
I hope you don’t live where the water is so cold you need booties. If you do, get some Xcels. Split toe, so you can look down at your feet & say “Damn, I’m so ninja!”, while you’re tearing a glassy frozen wave face apart.
