What it would take for me to buy an iPhone 5(4s)

I personally have never been a fan of Apple. Their laptops are WAY overpriced; but for the most part I hate the people who defend this brand of electronics so intently (which really isn’t Apple’s fault). I have never had a friendly discussion about Apple products with someone who never pointed out any flaws with their iPhone or Macbook. For the most part, people are clueless. For example, most people don’t know that the iPod (except for the 1st generation models), including the iPod Touch (no it’s not called an iTouch) have a “feature” included that saves battery. This is good for some people as an iPod in general can last a very long time just playing music. But most people don’t know this “feature” hinders the sound quality of your songs. For me this is a big deal because I spend a considerable amount of buck into a nice pair of headphones, and I spend a lot of time making sure all my MP3’s are of the highest quality possible (well 320kbps is the minimum for me). Oh and if you’re wondering, I use a Sanza Fuze to listen to music, something that retails for half the price of an the cheapest iPod, has an equalizer, and utilizes the full potential of my $200+ headphones.


Nike SB Dunk Low “Space Jam”

Inspired from the 2009 release of Air Jordan XI Space Jam. I am definitely copping these when they go out in May.


two psychopaths

This morning, you wake, a sunray hits your face
smeared makeup as we lay in the wake of destruction
hush baby, speak softly, tell me I’ll be sorry
that you pushed me into the coffee table last night
so I can push you off me
try and touch me so I can scream at you not to touch me
run out the room and I’ll follow you like a lost puppy
baby, without you, I’m nothing, I’m so lost, hug me
then tell me how ugly I am, but that you’ll always love me
then after that, shove me, in the aftermath of the
destructive path that we’re on,
two psychopaths but we
know that no matter how many knives we put in each other’s backs
that we’ll have each other’s backs, ’cause we’re that lucky
together, we move mountains, let’s not make mountains out of molehills,
you hit me twice, yeah, but who’s countin’?
I may have hit you three times, I’m startin’ to lose count
but together, we’ll live forever, we found the youth fountain
our love is crazy, we’re nuts, but I refused counsellin’
this house is too huge, if you move out I’ll burn all two thousand
square feet of it to the ground, ain’t shit you can do about it
with you I’m in my f-ckin’ mind, without you, I’m out it

Copped rarities

Was able to acquire some rare gear.

Supreme X Neighbourhood Capsule Collection new era (originally relased December 2007). I was lucky to find this stated “brand new”.

Supreme x Bape Box Logo Blue Camo (originally released in 2003). The original owner kept this in very good condition, and I assume he didn’t wear it at all, because I wouldn’t wear it out myself that often.

Easy “hack” forces NoDo update out on my HD7

I’ve heard news that the NoDo update is finally out here in Canada, specifically for Rogers with the Samsung Focus. Unfortunately I’m using an unlocked HD7 under the Rogers network and still don’t have the update. Frankie sent me a link from wpcentral where there was an easy way around this.

1. Start Zune
2. Turn off Data connection and Wifi on the Phone
3. Connect the Phone with the PC (USB)
4. Start the update search in Zune
5. About 3 seconds later, disconnect your PC from the internet (Turn WLAN off).
6. Zune finds NoDo-Update. Press OK.
7. Connect to the internet again and install the update.

It may take you several tries to get the timing right on step 5, depends on how fast your internet connection is. I had to time mine less than 3 seconds because it would instantly say my phone is up to date.

While writing this my phone is being updated as we speak! Thanks to Frankie for the info.


Doraemon X New Era

I saw a glimpse of the Doraemon collaboration in one of the Japanese New Era mags a couple months ago and thought it was pretty cool. I heard only a small number were produced and release online only on the Japan New Era store and Amazing Store in Japan.

Fast forward a couple months later, my girl surprised me by getting me this hat online. Really dope and a worthy addition to my collection.

Superhero Streetwear Crossover: Stussy x Marvel

The newly announced Stussy X Marvel Comics collection is probably the most awesome but unlikely collaboration. The Stussy x Marvel Comics collection is a new joint effort from the two giant companies to produce some new apparel. The line will incorporate some of the most famous superheros into Stussy’s designs. According to F5 Refresh, there’ll be two separate release. The first one will see a variety of shirts and caps “that integrate Marvel imagery with Stussy font.” The second release will gather international artists who’ll pay tribute to their favorite characters by interpreting them with a personal touch.

The Stussy x Marvel Comics collection is set to be released at the end of April then at the end of May. I can’t wait for more previews. For now, we get some of these teaser images.
