Remix of the Week

Check out this remix of “Power” by Kanye West. This one comes from my homie Paper Diamond out of Boulder, Colorado and you can feel that Colorado electro-dub swag in this track. Paper Diamond is signed to world-renowned Pretty Lights Music and definitely one to catch live at Coachella.

Download the track here or watch a low-quality live video from The Tabernacle in Atlanta below…

Shout out to the entire Elm & Oak team (swag)…

 


Fat Kids

What’s funnier than a fat kid falling? A mexican fat kid falling. There’s just something so sinister and hilarious about the language barrier…


Nike Dunk SB “Cheech & Chong” 420 Release

Representing the headbands of Tommy Chong and “Cheech” Marin, the Nike Dunk SB “Cheech & Chong” is the newest stoner themed SB to hit the shelves on 4/20. To the naked eye, I would say these shoes are fugly considering the copious amounts of white canvas, and we all know that white shoes are for Mexican’s.

Wait, but Nike Skateboarding actually threw a curveball with these bad boys. The white material covering the shoe is a “tearaway” canvas that cloaks a green suede underneath, only revealed when scuffed or torn. Heady! Here’s a closeup teaser pic of the canvas torn away to reveal the green suede…

Below is a picture of last years 4/20 release.

Much bigger fan of last years “Skunk Dunks”, complete with a stash pocket for hiding your nugs, brah.


Clip of the Day

Everyone’s favorite camp counselor. If you don’t know who Tony Perkis is, you either had a shitty childhood or were extremely poor, one in the same I guess…


Buddy’s Picks

This video is amazing.

I totally lost my shit when that guy just stared into the screen. Shout out to @GregMike for the find.

Is it awesome? This is an old one, yet quite enjoyable.

If you haven’t seen this video, please watch it until it gets old so we can quote it drunk at the bar next time we see each other.

Hammerin’ away like he’s friggin Tommy Noble. No way. Get real. I paid for that floor.


Concepts x NB “The Kennedy”

Concepts has teamed up with New Balance to produce a shoe that is so yachty, Judge Smails can’t even get his hands on a pair. These limited release New Balance 999’s will only be available at Concepts in Cambridge, MA. These sneaks are affectionately coined, “The Kennedy” and are set to drop on April 16th.

Granted I’ve bashed New Balance in the past for coming out with questionable releases, but I’ve also given Concepts their due for their hand in the Lobsters.  They got these just right. A little red, white, and blue never hurt anybody and the grey and taupe accents absolutely finish the drill. Gah, these scream Le Don Francois.

Since you have about zero chance of getting your hands on a pair of The Kennedy’s, get your bid with these Air Max 95’s. These are available at most shoe stores, like Walter’s and Wish in Atlanta, and are a classic colorway of one of the best Nike runner’s of all time.

Speaking of yachts, check out this “Boat Shoe Boat” that Sebago created as a marketing tool. Frat.
