Unbelievable! The New England Patriots win their 16th game, becoming the first team to have a winning regular season run that long in NFL history. I don't have to tell you how big this is (its all over TV), but since my Bengals aren't making it to the playoffs this year I have to vie for Dallas to win, ha.

I made a post on these guys earlier this year (feb 07) and have been checking with them on occasion. They recently received recognition as one of the top 20 best Wallstreet blogs on the net. Its a pretty cool site run by people our age (20+) so check out the site if you are interested in stocks and investing.
Just a minute ago as I was going through my daily blog roll I noticed that TheCorporatetakeover(.net) had made a post about who will be taking up the Def Jam president post when Jay finaly steps down, and the first thing that struck me was the shirt Jay had on. Most people aren't familiar with the street wear scene but for those that are the brand of shirt that Jay has on would be obvious. The Undefeated (UNDFTD)brand based out of LA is a fresh brand focused mainly on a mixture of the underground skating subculture, and is definetely a staple in the industry. Check out the link below for more knowledge.

Sorry for the late post I haven't had access to my laptop for some time and even now I'm short on free time. I'm surprised by the amount of responses I've been getting on my blog lately. More than 1 response every 3 weeks is a BIG DEAL! I've been doing this for a while now and I don't advertise my page, I don't even talk about it to my friends. Its just a fun project that I work on when I have time and lately its become something of a journal for all the cool things I happen across that I am interested in. Since people are actually reading my site I'm gonna have to take it a little more seriously I guess. Thanks for your replies.
I hope everyone enjoy(ed/s) their Christmas/Hanukkah/Kwanzaa. 4 DAYS TILL NEW YEARS! Can't wait.

Nike has always amazed me at how great they are at marketing. After they teamed up with foot locker in may this year to build the new House of Hoops branded stores, you just get the feeling that nike really can sell ANYTHING. Most nike commercials usually have athletes as their selling points. This ad doesn't have a single athlete in it, but still manages to inspire.
I liked the commercial so much that I had to do some more research on the store. From the video the store doesn't look all that sweet, which reminds you of how much priority Nike places on marketing creativity. Even though I'm not falling out of my seat I still like the look of the store, plus I like the Dipset touch. DIP DIP...
Also check out Freshnessmag's scoop on the same store (in Harlem NY). Its a bit old but I figure since I missed it so did you.

If you've been coming to the site for any length of time and still don't know about the crooks, then get familiar. The crooks n castles team just opened a newest store on Melrose Avenue, LA. Their clothing has been rocked by everyone from Jay-Z to Big Boi from outkast, Lupe fiasco to Bun B. C&C have a lot of weight in the streetwear industry and its only right that they open up shop.

A breath of fresh air, a glimmer of hope for hip hop, the return of street gangsta poetry, Az, Brooklyn, NYC, rap is not dead. The video is CRAZY originl, the lyrics actually sound like they took time to put together, I need to hear some more AZ.
