Change we need

Saw this on Rickey's blog, its one heck of an inspiring speech

Barack Obama in Virginia: "Change we need"
The man has built up a huge library of great speechs to this point, and i'd say this one held a day after his debate with McCain, in the backdrop of the US economy bailout, standing in the Virginia rain ranks right up there with his take on a "more perfect union"

Bad news for the bailout

"The secretary and the administration need to know that what they have sent to us is not acceptable," says Committee Chairman Chris Dodd, D-Conn. The committee's top Republican, Alabama Sen. Richard Shelby, says he's concerned about its cost and whether it will even work.

In fact, some of the most basic details, including the $700 billion figure Treasury would use to buy up bad debt, are fuzzy.

"It's not based on any particular data point," a Treasury spokeswoman told Tuesday. "We just wanted to choose a really large number."

one word sums it up. WOW
God bless America

Couple of random pick ups the past few weeks that arrived via mr postman

Unrivaled stud shirt
Way stoked when i opened up the package... it fits! haha, was so worried it would be too tight (or self too fat)
Them studs are too awesome, and that contrast pinstripe? Loveliness!
...the most anarchic, y'all!

Electric cottage selvedge denim
Another trip down memory lane to my fave year '02. Quirky zip pockets aside, was looking for baggy denim and thought it fitted the bill pretty much. And take note of the rear zip pocket, you'll see it being retro'ed in the latest HeadporterPlus denim collection ;)

w)taps "henson"
I loved this collection by Tet, simply coz it replicated the USN flight deck jerseys, where they stenciled their call-signs or names for id. Yea, i know, its purple, but hey, i think it can work with layering

FCRB jacket
Ah, the Pièce de résistance... the final jigsaw
You guys have no idea how much i've hankered for this jacket ever since eyeing it in the street mags (darn you, Japan! haha)
Oh, what about those packable, seamless, waterproof, gore-infused new-age, NS(F)W collection? Pft, but they ain't FCRB (i know, i'm an ass...and lovin' it haha!)
Wind-proof, rain-slick, fleece-lined (soph)istication rules
Oh, and 1 more trilogy is complete:

FCRB tee, jersey L/S and jacket
its all about the hunt, son! :)

(hype)beastie boy on the lurk
GDEH|GDEHnim|Cons HF|wired h|Stussy(hiroshi)no vis
Had an awesome sashimi lunch at SushiTei and ran some errands about town. Lots of touristy folks out and about in the insanely-warm weather. It could only mean one thing...

F1 is in town
couple of prep shots

Was lucky enough to catch some of the developments before the mad rush, and boy, i'm def impressed by how much they accomplished in so little time. Weeks ago, that pitlane just fresh tarmac and concrete!

And more shots from the 1st practice session on Friday

Adrian Sutil, Dave Coultard, Jarno Trulli, Nakajima, Nelson Piquet Jr, (lady-magnet)Kimi and (blazin') Massa
The views of the circuit against the cosmopolitan skyline are absolutely amazing, and i'd say the SingaporeGP has aready surpassed all expectations. I'm so gonna get me more F1 action for the next one!

Goodenough UK

As mentioned in last post, i adore the ClockworkOrange theme. I need them!

Dope quality on the all-familiar "G" logo tee, and pocket embroidery. Those will be perfect with the Visvim Mayan collection (than Vis' own items)

Simple shirts eh?
Peep the white-on-white detailing of a Hawaian print, look out for wooden buttons as well! yay
Bape x Wtaps NFS

Plain and simple, i like!


Diesel XXX party - Oct
Its not the 24hr worldwide party that generating all the buzz, its the hilarious viral vid!
normally i won't even bother with mediawhore Kim K, but thse spandex are too tight (till its see through) to ignore

and i'm so glad she's into going

A 'nother Ape

2 thumbs up
If T-bone says OK, hey, who's to argue?
McCain gets BarackRoll'd
I LOL'd at this...crazy funny if you understand what Rick Roll'd means

Speaking of political vids...Madge gives her approval as well
street pix i'm lovin' lately

Trust the great Sart Scott to consistently come up with the awesomeness. Lady in (skintight)red ftw
No.2 of 500

No, its not literally number 2 of 500, but my second pair of the adidas x bathing ape skate hi. How dope is this, to not only snag the 2nd design, but copping it for near retail yet again? Sneaker gods must be smiling on me
I actually find this olive colorway more "wearable". Oh yes, lots of folks baying for me to un-DS it already. What do you say, with some military BDU's or cargos?

Gimme5 MajorForce "echoplex"

A nice little find amidst the usual digs, this one references the delay audio effects using tape loops, with the popular Echoplex tape cartridges (anyone still knows what those are these days?) as medium
Me, i'm just stoked to get a piece of history: MajorForceWest prints + Gimme5 tees are few and far between


Somewhat related (to gimme5), also picked up the GDEHUK dot-dot tee
Missed out picking this up during the frequent sales at Ambush, but this will do. Thinking of using it as an undershirt/layering with blazer/light jackets

And that the end of nostalgia-buiding for the past week...i assure you: more to come!


I like the cute "hello my name is" print on the dollar bill


RSNT x unrivaled
This one's gonna excite quite a few folks i know. I love the HTC-esque studs, and the fact that those 2 brands coming together means amazing stuff


This one's definitely for the fans
Fans of what? you may ask... why Master Director Stanley Kubrick's 1971 Clockwork Orange of course
"X" for film rating (one of only 2 X-rated movies to be nominated for Best Picture at the Academy Awards)
"6655321" is titular character Alex's prison number
Simple tee, print...but speaks so much. I can't wait for the rest of the print collection. Can someone provide me with more info/help to cop? pls?


Nike celebrates 7th anniversary partnership with Caol Uno. I love the simple Fuji print, don't you?

A model i don't normally see, but i think its a dope silhouette. M.A.T for martial arts training, it has a sleek low profile to feel the ground, much like the Nike Grecko wrestling boots

Futura Labs

It almost seems like a collab between Shep Fairey and Lenny, no? Dope typefont (but of course)

Speaking of typefont, i prefer this more


The Silas x Vans Sk8 Hi dropped recently, and it looks great! I love the collab tongue tab
It'll be a great companion with the Amos Toys Martin X

Petite perky prettiness

Emmanuelle Chriqui somehow defies gravity with her perkiness!


Terry Richardson waves his magic touch/wand/T-bone for GQ yet again (remember the Jessica Alba shoot?)

I love domino rally as the next kid (young at heart)...
These are sooo cool

don;t you just love how he does 3D? and that cat Flippy? LOL

Laters y'all
