Shot & Song - Shelf Life

"The Pacific Northwest is the birthplace to Nike. It started with a handshake between two visionary Oregonians - Bowerman and his University of Oregon runner Phil Knight. They and the people they hired evolved and grew the company that became Nike from a US-based footwear distributor to a global marketer of athletic footwear, apparel and equipment that is unrivaled in the world. Nike's world headquarters is located near Beaverton, Oregon, a suburb of Portland." (photo by Mr. Fernandez)

Shot & Song - More Shoes

Wednesday, April 29, 2009 / Posted by PageOne / comments (0)

Duane, besides the fact that we sent each other shoe shots, it's interesting (to me anyway) that my pic reminded you of winter. I mean, I can see why, but yours definitely draws thoughts of summer. When I think of summer I think of reggae, roots, & dub. I hate folks that think Marley represents the white dood's breadth of reggae taste. In fact, that perception almost made me not want to chose this particular song. Talk about digression!... anyway this track is one of my faves from Robert Nesta on my nummer 1 Marley record. Plus it's produced by Mr. Perry on top of it all!

Shot & Song - MUSCLE

Tuesday, April 28, 2009 / Posted by PageOne / comments (1)

The premise here was that Duane and I would trade a random photo then post it with an accompanied tune. Getting to look at an assortment of Mr. Fernandez's rarely shared photography, that I then pair with (hopefully) a fitting tune... I'm looking forward to this! He'll be doing the same over at his blog with my random shots.

Anyway, Duane's on top of things and sent along a snapshot of the cherry piece of American muscle that you see above. Upon first glance, I pictured some young dude back in '69 doing Plymouth burnouts in the Piggly Wiggly parking lot while blaring "Spoonful" by Howlin' Wolf.

Duane's Shoes

In response to Mr. Fernandez's post, I thought I'd put-up his pic. Air Max '95s in florescent pink... nice. You artist types can pull those off! Haha! But really, I always dig your shoe taste, and wouldn't mind seeing those hemp Vans you used to have. As I recall, they were actually pretty clean for a pair of "hippie shoes," of which you are not (grammatical?).

Here's an idea Duane, starting ASAP send me one random pic a day over the next week. I'll pair it with a fitting song and then post it for download. Then you can do the same. Whatcha think?

Slow Motion Punches to The Face from Eduardo Wydler on Vimeo.
Pretty amusing... the presentation and jiggly faces do it for me. Looks like the dude smoking the cigarette is throwing most of the punches.

Is he gonna blow-up?

I've heard 4 songs by Mayer Hawthorne, and I've loved them all. I wonder how my tastes correspond with the masses?

Nike just launched the SFB military boot, a project 4 years in the making led by Nike Innovation Manager Tobie Hatfield. Built for speed, agility, and comfort, the ultra-light SFB's upper is made from a polyester woven shell wrapped in synthetic leather overlays, this means there's no 'break-in' time required (typical with most boots), and it dramatically increases drying time.

The SFB breaks new ground in lightweight athletic boot delivering innovation for athletes in any environment. The SFB, perfect for warm weather conditions, is the lightest, fastest drying, natural motion boot on the planet. It features a Natural Motion Cushioning unit that helps allows for optimal support and speed during heel to toe transfer, translated the boot is made to move and form with the foot's natural motion allowing for quick flexible movement in any direction while drastically reducing the weight of conventional boots. Making it the perfect companion during multi-day backpacking hikes which can be cut short if your boots don't work with your foot.

Offering unparalleled traction, the SFB's outsole is fitted with a directional traction heel sole that utilizes reverse tread bars and a slightly raised heel for better traction going downhill, while the Sticky Rubber forefoot lugs were strategically placed to allow exceptional agility and traction in any terrain. Upping the ante on protection, the SFB's mid-sole comes equipped with puncture and laceration resistant thermoplastic forefoot shield and genuine leather with Kevlar sheath, both placed in the sole of the SFB allowing the boot to form to the foot of its wearer while offering protection from jagged rocky terrain.
