• What I’ve been listening To

    I’m gonna be honest guys. I haven’t been listening to much music (or podcast) lately. I’m trying my hardest to be a little more productive during my commutes, using the short time i have to try to write something (ANYTHING).  This isn’t to say i’m just riding on the train in full on silence with headphones in to trick people into thinking i can’t hear them, sometimes there is something playing. Here are a few things I’ve had on repeat recently. Andre 3k is back! but not back with OutKast, or in that Hey Ya! kinda way, but he’s back! As a token of appreciation for both his fans and…

  • A new Home

    As you guys know a few months ago i left my apartment of nearly a decade in this time I’ve been living back home with my family and it’s been an interesting time. My original intention was to stick it out at least a year (obviously did not happen) but after just a few months i realized it just wasn’t something i felt was helping in a big picture sort of way.

I appreciate everything they’ve…

  • The Shoe Surgeon

    I first met Dom (the shoe surgeon) through a friend while i was at DNA. I have to admit, when he was first mentioned to me i didn’t have much interest, and wasn’t really that excited about his work. I hadn’t seen it yet, but I’ve seen the work of other customizers, and i couldn’t imagine his being much different. I was wrong. I visited a work shop he was having in Brooklyn, and i was full on blown away by his work, creativity and talent. I love that he was self taught and has completely redefined what it means to customize sneakers. Check out his recent Vice profile below.

  • What a Week

    Guys it has been a VERY draining and exhausting week. In between M and i getting the new place ready, one of my dogs (Bandit) get very, very sick. I won’t go into the details of it all, but he’s been hospitalized all week and was diagnosed with a rare disease called Addisons disease. During all this I’ve been sleeping terribly, some nights not at all – and because i found myself with a ton of extra time, I took to the internet in search of anything to keep my mind of off everything going on. Wild, Wild Country. M put me on and i can’t stop watching. Don’t even bother with the…
