Riedel Tyrol decanter

January 28, 2009

riedel-tyrol-decanter

The Riedel Tyrol decanter is named after the region in the Austrian alps where the Riedel workshops are located and was designed to match their Tyrol collection of glasses. The Tyrol decanter uses an innovative design which allows the wine to decant in a horizontal position allowing the sediment to settle on a greater surface than that of a traditional decanter. The decanter is made of twenty four percent lead crystal and is available exclusively from Riedel retailers.

In honor of Black History Month Nike will be releasing htis pair of Air Force One’s and they picked the perfect day to display them one day after Martin Luther King’s birthday and on the same day when the first Black President Barack Obama takes office. The shoe has a predominantly black upper construactted from premium leather with red and green stiching all along the shoe. There is also a laser print on the back end of the side panels. The shoes come with a special packaging which includes a black bag with a motivational quote and a logo will also come on the back of it representing 100 years. This shoe will only be given to select individuals active in the Black History Community. Via. KicksOnFire.com

Here is the quote that comes with the shoes: ”

“100 years came and another 100 past

little did they know, nothing would forever last

the land they knew stood for “liberty and justice for all”

however, “we the people” didn’t include them at all

words on paper held no weight

it was time for judicial battle at the mahogany gate

they moved left and then shifted right

they fought for freedom keeping equality in sight

laws were challenged and changes were made

giving us the right to make the grade

thanks to those who fought the fight

moving the darkness and bringing light”

BROKE ANKLES !!!!!!

January 16, 2009


Finishing off the last video of the Nike Zoom Kobe IV (4), Kobe Bryant was giving his away ankle insurance business card to Mike Epps and DJ AM. This time around Bryant is not playing horse against the two, but is rather promoting his new sneaker which ensures protection from broken ankles. The video immitates the current insurance commercials which has included another NBA superstar, Lebron James. In the commercial, the Zoom Kobe IV is defined as a low, light and quick sneaker to perform against the best of them. Catch the Zoom Kobe IV Carpe Diem in-stores on Saturday, January 17th.

The typical power adapter is the perfect symbol of design by engineers; it fits everything they need into that black box, and takes absolutely no consideration of the environment in which it will go, often rendering adjacent outlets useless. Ideative’s Socket Sense is a good solution, expanding outwards so you can “load” the outlets before compressing them together into a tidier bundle. Runs about 30 bucks US and is one of the better powerstrip

Actor on the rise: Columbus Short

I saw the movie Cadillac Records this weekend and I have to say it was a good Film, all around Acting, Music, direction, and story. I think alot of people are sleeping on it, and its really a solid film, but this post is about the new up and coming actor Columbus Short who had a stand out performance in the film!  Below is a interview from complex magazine that you can read to get to know him better.

Unlike most young gunners, he’s shying away from the easy money and meticulously picking his roles (hey, Stomp The Yard > You Got Served). In this uncut version of the interview, Short gives his thoughts on Tyler Perry movies, his future projects and why he’s not trying to wind up like Brandon Routh. Who? Exactly!

Interview By Damien Scott

Complex: Many people don’t know this, but you were in Stomp. How did that come about?

Columbus Short: Well basically, when I was a kid, my mom took me to a McDonald’s commercial and I just froze up, man. I got shy. I wasn’t ready for it at the time. So she waited till I got a little older and when I was 10, I started auditioning again and it was just a passion. But then I moved to Orange County and then when I went to high school, I started getting into musicals and Broadway and that became a passion. So I joined the cast of Stomp.

Complex: What’s been your favorite movie to be in so far?

CS: Cadillac Records by far. I did that with Beyoncé, Jeffrey Wright, Adrian Brody, and it was the most artistic fulfilling experience ever. It’s why I signed up to be an actor. And it isn’t a huge movie. It’s very much a critically acclaimed movie and that’s what its about. It’s not always about the money. It was a fantastic, wonderful experience.

Complex: I don’t know, any movie with Beyoncé, Jeffrey Wright and Adrian Brody is pretty huge. Let’s talk about it—you play Little Walter. How did you prepare for that role?

CS: Lawrence Fishburne got me his dialect coach and I started going to a dialect coach, ’cause Little Walter was Cajun. He spoke French from the Bayou and I started learning how to play the harmonica. So I was doing that, I lost 25 pounds and immersed myself in blues.
