NIKE has impressed me with their latest approach to the ACG collection. As far as fashion goes, I only voice my opinion from the standpoint of a consumer. I am a Recording Artist and an Art Director for Graphic Design, not Fashion Design. Every trade in this world deserves its respect and the experts in these fields should be heard before the voices of those who are just ranting on the internet.
with that said…
I don’t believe in this idea that we recognize the price of an article of clothing before we recognize its craftsmanship. This Technical Gore Tex jacket by NIKE demonstrates function before form. It is the same coat that NFL coaches wear to protect them in bad weather on the sidelines, but with reflective type branding the coat on the front and back that serves as reflective stamping to make you visible within the elements. I like that. Simple but there is dignity in simplicity and this hits the nail on the head. This coat is unavailable on retailers and is drawing a tag of $800 on Ebay. I still want it but I’m not purchasing this masterpiece second hand.
As a collector this brings back too much nostalgia. I remember getting my Sega Genesis for my birthday and playing Sonic the Hedgehog until I got a migraine. No saving, you had to win or start from the beginning. LOL. Those were the days man. As a lover of Transformers, obviously this it too much to handle.
You can pick this up @ Big Bad Toy Store here: http://www.bigbadtoystore.com/bbts/product.aspx?product=SNT10053&mode=retail
It comes in stone gray and I guess you have to paint him yourself. Seems worth the effort if you are a real collector. Just a great idea and an awesome way to combine childhood memories. Gnna snap this up for my new studio and hopefully post some pics later. Been working on the new tape diligently. Give me time yall.
Nike Stealth Foamposite
Im from Jersey, and that means I see alot of concrete and blacktop. These are the most official shoe for our terrain I can think of. The timeless design and rugged look make this one of the toughest Nike’s of all time. No need to worry about holmes who stepped on ya joints either…its not gonna be a huge factor with these. Good with almost any pair of raw denims, the stealth foam is my favorite. Possibly the only shoe that I would wait in line for…wait what am I saying?
Street value around $400, I think these are a must own for any collector or anyone who wants to fight the concrete back! Ha!
The wait is over! Thank you so much for your undying support! This is huge!!!!
Walnut encased Neo Geo
We are all trying to build our very own bat cave. Don’t pretend you don’t want a funnel slide that will bring you from your car to your living room at the push of a button. lol.
We may not all be able to get the funnel slide but at least we can have a conversation piece that doubles as one of the greatest gaming systems of all time. I know, I know. I already did a post on “I want that” for a Neo Geo, but this one is made of wood (pause). That should justify the double gadget lust. If you want to get one of these go here, otherwise get your chisel, cus this is gonna take a while.
Nike Air Max Posite (Black)
The dopeness knows no bounds. I don’t normally do Nike boots, its kind of like a protest since I went to school in the Maryland/DC area and everyone there was rockin Nike boots. I had on the Vasquez, tryin’ to be different and such. Still gotta admit that these are just ridiculous. I already love Foamposites, but soupin them up like this is kinda like putting a hemi under the hood. Crazy.
Workin’ off no sleep…runnin on fumes. Intervied with Clubzone FM and hit the concrete for a photo shoot.
Here are some of the flicks I took with Matt of BiggShot. We were in 201 at a dope locale with some art that was screamin’ for attention.

After the shoot ended we logged everything and gathered the crew to get this BET Hip Hop Awards video done for 92Q Jams. Check it out below
Oh you thought when I said “get your own gear” that I meant just music equipment? Nah!

I like watches, I have my share of Gshocks…I have the big face casual watch, I have the detailed see through watch that shows the gears and what not, I even have the suave black tie affair watch…but this. This is crazy. All I know is I want one.
Here is a vid of the Apple guy, Wozniak and his Nixie…
Pretty slick find, I have to credit one of my “brothers” for putting me on…so I put you on!
If you ar an O.G. gamer like me you remember this…
I was like, 9 or 10 years old droolin’ on the display case in the Electronics Boutique all the way in the back corner of the mall. I remember playin Art of Fighting at the bowling alley and spending all my pocket money trying to beat the first dude (I was a kid, that game was waaay harder than Street Fighter).
Me and my friends would always talk about how crazy NEO GEO games were. When this became a home console, we all went crazy! That is, until we saw the pricetag.
The Neo Geo home system started at $700 and each game was $250.
No way I was getting it. I still remember all the dope games for it though:
I must have craved this thing for like 3 years and then Genesis came out. It was affordable on a birthday present budget so I got the hookup. It’s only now as an adult that I realize how dope NEO GEO was. I just don’t know why the price had to be so disrespectful…I mean STILL IS disrespectful.
not as disrespectful as this ad for the home system though:
If you saw Inception you know what this is. Its a machine that sedates the user and allows that person to Lucid Dream. A Lucid Dream is a semi conscious state where you dream but you are “awake” in the dream. I dream all the time but I rarely remember whats happening in my dreams for the most part, I only remember those extra crazy dreams. If I could experience my dreams more fully, it would be like the craziest virtual reality experience. Keyword being “crazy”, cus I’m sure playing around in your head like that could mess you up some sorta way.
I know this machine is not real but back in the day I used to read my brothers PlayBoy magazines (for the articles) and they would always advertise this device called the Nova Dreamer. It was a device that covered your eyes while you sleep and if you started dreaming it would flash red lights into your eyelids. This would make you “wake up” in your dream. Then you were free to Lucid Dream until reality sets back in (you wake up for real).
After seeing Inception I remembered the Nova Dreamer and how they would tell you in the instructions on the side of the page that you need to visualize a symbol that will always appear to alert you that you are dreaming. Thats very similar to the “totem” used in Inception. I wonder if Nova Dreamers are still on sale somewhere. Im gonna have to look around. It cost $500 beans and thats a nice chunk…so it better be some kind of refund system if the thing don’t work, cus I wanna Dream of a Million, literally. Ha!
Regardless, if you ever wanted to know how the Inception Dream Machine works…here is a diagram that can help.

Welcome to “I want that”. This is where I will be posting my impulse buy obsessions!
Super Sideviews…I love how they have the shades on the side, that way you can block peripheral haters! hhahahah!
Seriously though, they have scratch resistant Carl Zeiss lenses a la Sony Cameras and Camcorders. They fit your face too. Alot of people have the Jersey Shore syndrome when it comes to shades, they either too big for your face or too knock off to be in good taste!
Remember…I put you on!
