99X NYC Closed; R.I.P.

99x_nyc_shoes_store

It’s clobberin’ time. Remember wondering where to get your Docs, Fred Perry gear, Merc suits, Vans, creepers, braces, football club scarves? Back in the day, 99X in NYC was the top shop to pick any of these up or even have them custom ordered. The staff knew their shit –  Hardcore, ska and punk (in that order) discoveries old and new, domestic and international, were always in rotation in the store. They’re closed as of now due to either the pressures of time or money. Maybe the wall of death of competition knocked them down on the dance floor: copycat stores on St. Mark’s, internet stores, malls, and local Fred Perry and Ben Sherman outposts could have killed the love. In the photo above, a worker can be seen scraping stickers off the wall. Looks like someone was smart enough to grab the store sign and flag. R.I.P.!

The Aqua Art Fair in 30 Minutes


To be honest, by the time I got to Aqua I was pretty damn hot so the Human Sweat Machine didn’t spend much time inside, because it wasn’t exactly cool in there either.  Anyway, see above.

twitter is the new google

pay-onthego

Twitter looks like they are not a one hit wonder. Check out the new startup from co-founder Jack Dorsey called Square, a mobile payments company. “Square allows anybody with a cell phone or laptop that has a headphone jack to accept credit card payments using a small plug-in dongle, rather than having to purchase costly credit-card processing equipment“. It’s in beta(private beta, that is) and basically means you’re a walking store selling shit on the go. Nice Job!

Bijin Tokei, the best iphone app ever!, Think of it as a clock and each minute is a new beautiful girl from the streets of Japan. The basic premise is that they photographed a different girl every minute, holding a sign telling you the time. You can also set the alarm to wake to your favorite “6:45 girl”.

Here it is in their own words…

“In “Bijin Tokei”, photographed images of beautiful women in Japan are displayed every minute.
In Japanese, “Bijin” means ‘beautiful woman’.
The photos show beautiful women walking on the streets of Shibuya, Harajuku, etc. From these photos, a real close up image of Tokyo can be seen.
“Tokei” means ‘clock’ in Japanese. This application performs as a clock and will inform you of the current time on your iPhone & iPod touch with style and elegance.
1,440 wonderful beautiful women smile at you.”

The Scope Art Fair in 60 Minutes


Scope Art Fair had a lot of great things going, here is a taste.

rent it now, The limits of control

Released Dec 1 on DVD, New York director Jim Jarmusch’s (Dead Man, Down By Law) The Limits of Control, looks great, I am not sure how this was missed. Jim and cinematographer Christopher Doyle (Ashes of Time, Paranoid Park) collaborate to create an amazing noir experience.
