NBA 2k13 Executive Produced By Jay-Z

Here is the first trailer for the highly anticipated NBA 2k13 video game, apparently it's also the announcement of Jay-Z as the executive producer. I was a bit confused at first because I didn't know Jay-Z was in the gaming business. This shall be interesting! They kept the game behind closed doors at E3 so there's not really much info about Jay-Z's role in production yet.

"The Dark Knight Rises" Movie Review

The waiting and speculation is over, one of the most anticipated films of the year is finally here. The question is "Was it worth all the hype?" &  also "Is it better than the Avengers?" The answers to those questions will certainly be answered within my review of The Dark Knight Rises. This movie was nearly sold out a month before it even hit theaters.

Book of The Week: Don Winslow's "The Kings of Cool"

With a star studded cast and an Academy Award winning director the adaption of Don Winslow’s novel “Savages” showed why the fiction writer with the cult like following has caught the attention of the main stream literary world. The film like the novel told the story of three California natives who enter the marijuana business and go up against a Mexican drug cartel with vigor. But while it served up excitement it failed to answer the question on the minds of readers and moviegoers across the nation. Just how did Ben, Chon, and O become “three people in love”? That question is answered in Winslow’s “The Kings of Cool”.

Supra Footwear For Kids

SUPRA is proud to offer the favorite footwear of some of the world’s top athletes and celebrities in a new collection designed specifically for kids. The kids’ collection (for ages three and up) launches with four styles that have been engineered for fun: the Skytop, Vaider, Cuban, and Weston are available in a full range of kids’ sizes (11-6) and come in an exciting array of new colorways and dynamic designs that are comfortable to wear and constructed to last.

The Supra Ellington

What sets it apart,” Erik Ellington said about his sixth signature shoe from SUPRA, “is if you walk into a store today, pretty much every shoe looks like a slip-on. [The Ellington] has that feeling of being simple, but at the same time it’s got a lot more technical features.”

The technical features of the Ellington begin with the lightweight, full length SUPRAFOAM midsole that is thicker in the heel for impact protection and thinner at the toe for better board feel. It rests upon a rubber outsole with sidewalls in the toe and ollie area. The mid top collar, as well as the molded, internal ankle pods provide support and a snug, comfortable fit while retaining movement. A SUPRAFOAM footbed, with mesh sock liner, gives comfort and impact protection. The herring bone pattern in the sole’s high friction areas supplies superior grip.

Movies: Craigslist Joe

Here's a very interesting documentary coming out in August that many of you may not know about. This is a documentary produced by "Hangover" star Zach Galifianakis. Craigslist Joe is about a guy who lives off craigslist for one month with no money or contact with anyone he knows. Check out the trailer:

In a time when America's economy and sense of community were crumbling, one guy left everything behind--to see if he could survive solely on the support of the 21st century's new town square: Craigslist. It was in this climate that 29-year-old Joseph Garner cut himself off from everyone he knew and everything he owned, to embark on a bold adventure. Armed with only a laptop, cell phone, toothbrush, and the clothes on his back--alongside the hope that community was not gone but just had shifted--Joseph began his journey. For 31 December days and nights, everything in his life would come from the Craigslist website. From transportation to food, from shelter to companionship, Joe would depend on the generosity of people who had never seen him and whose sole connection to him was a giant virtual swap meet. Would America help Joe? Could he survive with nothing, apart from the goodwill of others?

Being a fan of documentaries, I am definitely going to check this out. It looks like an enjoyable film to me. Not sure If I will go see it in a theater because it will be released the same day on itunes and Video on Demand.

What do you think of Craigslist Joe? Feel free to comment with your thoughts.

World Premiere: "Cool Story McFly" By Bless McFly (FEATURE)

If you've been following me on any of the social networks then you may have seen me posting photos from a music video shoot last month. Before my journey to Los Angeles, I collaborated with Jersey rapper Bless McFly to do a hip-hop music video with an old school melody. I'm not much of a rapper so I had to settle for just a guest appearance LOL. In the video, I take on the role as a member of the "McFly Gang". The video takes place inside of the McFly hideout, a place where we meet up to socialize and strategize our plans.

My wardrobe was provided by the Wagon Boutique and the model with me was also wearing clothing provided by the boutique. By the way, the beautiful model next to me is Turcois Ominek. We had a great time shooting this video, and it was my first time shooting a music video by the way. Check out the video below and a few photos of our wardrobe..... feel free to post your comments.

New Music: "Sweet Life" By Frank Ocean

Here's a new track from Frank Ocean, this track is titled "Sweet Life" and it is co-produced by Pharrell Williams. This track is from his highly anticipated Channel Orange album. Frank Ocean shows that his personal preferences have nothing to do with his ability to create great music. This is a cool laid back track, as long as the music is the same I will still continue to be the same Frank Ocean fan I have always been. Check out the song and feel free to leave a comment below:

Movie Review: The Amazing Spider-Man

The Amazing Spider-Man was a pretty awesome film. They rebooted the live action film series to make it more like the actual comic book series. The film is pretty long compared to the other spider-man films, The Amazing Spider-Man is about 2 hours & 16 minutes long.  The storyline had very brief similarity to the other movies but not even enough to say it was a copy or even similar.

Music Monday: "I Am Me" By Willow Smith

Willow Smith premiered a new video last night during the BET Awards 12 Pre-Show. This video would seem rather unusual & out of the ordinary to some of the BET audience but to me it looks like a perfect fit for the MTV crowd. The video features Willow Smith in various parts of Soho New York expressing her artsy hippie side proudly. The video received lots of confused reactions on twitter after it premiered. Personally, If I had a 11 year old daughter, I would want her to act more like Willow Smith instead of like these little girls wearing colored wigs and singing about expensive designer bags. Being 11 is about having fun and being a kid, props to Willow for understanding that. It sure looks like she is enjoying herself in this video and thats what's up! Check out the video below and feel free to share your thoughts in the comments.
