Imagine if skate graphics had gone immediately to this in the 1990′s? We may have never seen the disappearance of rails, as these would have become dual-purpose decks.
Watch-movies.net is a great site that consists of current and upcoming films online for your viewing pleasure. There is no downloading required, although you can download some of the films. Basically, you search for a movie and they will provide you with a list of possible links to choose from. Some are rated “good”, some “bad” and you click on one you like and there you go. The quality may vary, but they’re viewable and cost nothing! If you’re used to watching stuff on Youtube, then this is perfect for you.
The Redwing classic 875 workboot is the current must have status trend. If you want to take it to a “whole nutha level”, you need these.
Redwing have teamed up with Nom De Guerre on a project that really “makes sense”, with a finish that really provides the classic 875 boot with a new direction. The grey suede nubuck upper is consistent with the current season at Nom De Guerre and the theme of the collection. They have been available since December 26 at the Nom De Guerre New York store.

“modern Spanish savings banks — commonly known as cajas in Castilian and caixas in Catalan — are strictly nonprofit institutions. While they may make money, they have no shareholders and pay no dividends. Profits, therefore, are meant to be devoted to the “public good” and the banks are at liberty to define this however they see fit.” What this means is money to put on International Art Exhibitions (like Beautiful Losers, above) and a good conscience.
I am obsessed with Dr. Martens once again, and so it seems I am not alone. A handful of big name designer have used the company’s classic 1460 kicks (named after the label’s April 1 launch in 1960) as a blank canvas, deconstructing and redefining the cherry red eight-lace shoe.
You can’t purchase the one-of-a-kind marabou-festooned or porno-covered boots but, you can check out all 69 designs on Dr. Martens’ special 1460 website

As it is now the beginning of a new work week in the new year, you are reflecting on all of your accomplishments in 2008, and planning out your goals in 2009. Have you ever wondered what your drink says about you? For example,
“Screwdriver – The Julius of cocktails. Also know as the Vod-orange-ka (thank you Michael Scott), the screwdriver says two things about you–one–that your drinking has not progressed since sophomore year of high school (which you clearly missed out on or are just now taking part in) and two–that you will be the target of every 45 year old guy in the bar that does more work in the gym than he does in the office.
Who drinks: High school/College women with an affinity to pretending they’re drunker than they are attractive.”
According to a ex-LA bartender observations you can decide if you need to change your drink for 2009, or it may help guide you through a night of drinking. Read more about what your drinks says about you at Banned in Hollywood.

Giant Robot is proud to host a “Choegal” release party attended by artist David Choe.
Raised on comic books, affected by street art, and inspired by crime, women, and music, Choe has developed a unique and restless style that is effortless yet meticulous and focused yet dirty. Since the artist contributed his first illustration to Giant Robot magazine in 1997, he has exhibited in solo shows around the world (at all three Giant Robot galleries as well as in Paris, Tokyo, and London) and also been featured on VBS-TV’s popular Thumbs Up! series. Choegal is his first wood figure: extremely detailed, totally hand painted, and featuring a head that rotates to expose three facial expressions. This piece is strictly limited to 1,000 pieces.
From 4:00-7:00 on Saturday, January 3, 2009, Choe will be on hand to sign Choegal figures, as well as the brand new issue of Giant Robot. In addition to writing his regular column, he provided cover art and design elements found throughout the magazine.
