Oh, I’ve had many nights where I’ve found myself strewed across a cold concrete surface somewhere along Kingsland Road, with little to no idea how I ended up there. I’m incredibly thankful no-one I know was around to snap a picture or twelve and blackmail me with the evidence when I become rich and famous. So thankful. That being said, this photography project depicting the after hours fun of high powered Japanese businessmen is both intriguing and frightening. The phrase “I’ll come out for just one” certainly does not apply here. You can read the piece in full here.

The Downfall of the Mob

Maybe I’m late to the party but why hasn’t this book ‘Murder Machine‘ been made into a movie? It’s an amazing in every way, the character development takes twists and turns you can never quite predict. The untimely demise of people so brutal you quest why you feel sympathy for then. The uphill struggle the police face trying to pin murders on gangster hellbent on avoiding the law. It details the downfall of the Gambino family during the heady days of New York City crime that stretched it’s tentacles across the United States. I can’t wait until someone picks this up and turns it into feature film of some sort, this story needs to be told!

Mark Gonzales

Back in the day in a desperate attempt to become a professional athlete (because I was shit at football) I got really into Fencing. It didn’t last long of course, but I had loads of fun learning the fundamentals and somehow I managed to pick up fairly quickly which helped. In some respects its the perfect sport, it has the right amount of strategy and athleticism to keep young minds like myself occupied. Naturally I geeked on the Fencing gear, specifically the trainers. A weird mix up of tennis shoe tread and a sort of cross training function upper were required for optimal performance and I loved them!

Which brings me onto the shoes in question, the adidas Aloha Super which draw inspiration from adiStar Fencing shoes originally worn by Mark Gonzales during a performance art piece at the German Museum in 1998. I’ve been meaning to get back into skateboarding too, so I can’t wait to test these when they release later this week!

I’m sure most of the people who read this blog are aware the Supreme Fall/Winter preview is out! There’s tons of clothes in the collection I love, mostly the outerwear, I’ve got my eye on a few bits n’ bobs but I don’t want to jinx myself, so if I end up getting anything I’ll make sure to post comprehensive review. Away from the clothing Supreme don’t get enough recognition for being the world best miscellaneous goods maker. Whether it’s a bluetooth speakers, water bottles or bricks, Supreme know how to make things you didn’t know you wanted until you saw it in their signature red. And there’s no better example than the Supreme/AWS Max-700 Digital Scale above. Say no more? Okay.
