Funny how quickly the weather changes..an hour into the drive to town, it starts pouring. Maybe it was Storm at work, heh heh.
X-Men 3 was pretty entertaining, successfully encompassing quite a few of the popular storylines from the comic book. It was a nice change to finally see the Danger-Room and Wolverine's white-fury in action instead of the safe-for-kids genre in the previous offerings. It was also a very good take on the "cure for mutants" line. It could have gone the cheesy way or over-done with an Oliver Stone kind of high-handedness. It brought across quite well the scriptwriter's focus that could have meant racism or homosexuality in today's world. Well, to me at least. In any case, it is still a bona fide summer movie.
Wore my toasty "Iceman" jacket to the theater. I swear, i didn't buy it for the movie, although a couple of kids probably thought so. When i first bought the Nike White Label jacket, i thought there'd be a wider release. Guess not.
Sneak-peek at my Muji dot-dot boxers, heh
Some Magazine looks from my bounty last weekend:
XLarge looks refreshing this season. Great to see them incorporating the polka dots into their line. Check out the Gravis flip-flop collab...essential.
Glamb is coming across very cool in this editorial. The "loony tunes x last supper" tee on the dude is absolutely fantastic. I did kinda enjoy the critic-proof DVC flick last week, and so was surprised and delighted to see it on a tee print.
If anyone else knows who this lovely sweet babe is, please direct me to her photo galleries, she is hot!
Streetwear trends...(in case you haven't alrady known)
Hot Monograms (Sophnet, Polo Ralph and Stussy take the front-line charge); Skulls (PLGLEG- how cute and FCRB);Dots (Resonate rules undoubtably); Camo (Flaph ala Futura Labs) and; All-out Pattern (stussy always comes up big)
I like Nigo's write-up for "girls on Bape" for CoolTrans...mostly coz of the babes (obvs)
The tee is a lil' distracting though...just wished it wasn't so obscenely priced.
