Who thought the Kanye West quote could still be a reference point for George Bush’s current actions? Here is a video of George Bush supposedly wiping his hand on Bill Clinton’s shirt after shaking a Haitians hand in Haiti. This video is making its rounds around the internet but yet to cause an outrage. In defense of Bush, he could just be merely patting Clinton on the back. But it is also entirely possible that he wanted to wipe his hand on Clintons back.
This would make it terrible on two different points. One, Bush doesnt care enough about Haitians and wanted to rid himself of their “germs.” Secondly, he found it appropriate to wipe his hand on Clintons back in an effort to demean him. Either way, it looks bad.
What do you guys think? Let us know in the comments section or on Twitter. Also make sure you are still doing all you can do to help the Haiti and Chile earthquake victims.
The Sixers have been really disappointing this year. The combination of AI Sr., AI Jr., Lou williams as well as Elton Brand has not produced a quality product on the Wachovia Center floor. However, Andre Igoudala has kept it nice with his Nike player editions. Here we take a look at three colorways of the Nike Zoom Skyposite PE.
We take a look at the official music video for Kid Cudi’s “Soundtrack 2 My Life” Man on the Moon album. The video was directed by Jason Goldwatch and features video footage taken while Kid Cudi was on tour.
Mr. Bathing Ape has finally launched in Japan, and I must say i’m not really feeling it. A lot of the stuff, so far at least, look like streetwear’s answer to the tuxedo shirt. To borrow from Cal Naughton Jr., the best description for this line might be “it says I want to be formal, but I like to party.”
The Spiz’ike is my favorite Jordan spinoff by far. This year we’ve already seen some sick colorways and these might be the best yet. Based on the classic Grape 5s, these Spiz’ikes have the same colorway and even have the ’23’ on the side. Don’t sleep on these.
Band of Outsiders and Sperry’s have hooked up again, this time on a few colorways of the Sperry A/O boot. THe Sperry boot is somewhat underrated as is, and Band of Outsiders does a good job of adding their own flavor without taking away from the classic look.
Alife dropped the first look at their Spring 2010 collection, which features a few new looks from the NY brand. While the hoodies and Ts are more in line with what they traditionally have done, the button ups are a new look for Alife. I’m not really sold on them yet, but kudos to them for stepping outside of their comfort zone.
I’m really feeling a lot of the stuff Brooklyn Circus is doing, and these boots might are no exception. These have a real strong look and would be a strong addition to your casual shoe game. Don’t be surprised if you catch them on my feet sooner than later.
This collaboration looks like something I will have to invest in and get a couple of items from. New York’s Acapulco Gold and Mark McNairy work together to create the book and 5 Pocket standard Jean seen here. The jeans feature 14 1/4 oz selvege denim and immaculate detail. Check out the photos for a detailed look at each item in the collaboration.
Here is a spotlight on one of the standouts from the Made Fresh mixtape. This time its “Law of Love” by Dephonic produced by Push Productions, drew.ish of Matrax & Ukrainium. Definitely check out the track and the rest of the Made Fresh mixtape.
Vans Authentics are some of my favorite sneakers. The Vans California Authentic Collection happens to feature some of the best Vans Authentics and here is a new special makeup that hasn’t been seen before. This version of the features a one piece design. The sneaker will be available in colorways of Brown, Lavender, Golden Yellow, Grey, Blue and Black. The sneaker will feature a one piece upper as well as silver metal eyelets, tonal Vans tags near the collar and upper-matching laces. The sneakers will also feature the usual white vulcanized sole. My favorite colorway would have to be the Golden yellow.
Abyss wil soon be releasing his Antidote Mash Up Ep. In the mean time check out the first single “Elegant Life” featuring Gilbere Forte. I have also added his “Sweet Tooth” track as well. This is definitely something to check out. Thanks to Khayree Reeves for the heads up.

At this point, if you don’t have a pair of Newbies you’re playing yourself. They’re comfortable, they’re understated, and they’re relatively cheap. These “Fluro Croc” 580s are a twist on the traditional NB, adding a splash of color to the traditional gray sneak. See the pics below*****
