Filthy’s Rant About Barkleys and Nike

 

Nike-Charles-Barkley-Ad

Nike in my opinion is not a fashion brand but and athletic brand. As far as athletics go and making shoes for performance – Nike is NOT the best. You can get better running, basketball and track shoes from other well established companies that are NOT Nike. If you like Nike then you like the style. (Lolz)  Nike does have some ok looking sneakers but none of them are really styling. You got the dunks for the young punks which is cool. It is cool to be punk sometimes but not all the time. If you rock Nike all the time it just means you are lazy. You dont dare to be different. You just wanna fit in, which is wack.

Back to my point. Barkleys. I likes Charles Barkley but I dont even think CB himself likes his shoe made by Nike. The ugliest shoe Nike makes. That is saying alot! Take the Nike logos off and it looks like something a retarded person would make. Payless has better designs.You are NOT styling if you wear these. They dont look good in any colorway. Just a waste of money. Put on some Jack Purcel’s (www.converse.com) and you are killing it. Put on some Adidas Sambas and you styling! (Put on some Air Force Ones even or Y3 or Gucci or Bally or Balencies or walk barefooted on some Tom Sawyer shit). When I say styling I dont mean styling where you at. I mean go to London or Japan, South Side of France or the South Side of Chicago and still be fly. Universal. Not local.

Only thing you pulling wearing these Barkleys is a chick who’s panties still smell like piss.So while you are finger poppin La quisha rotten crotch she can tell ya how you stilling in your shit kicker sneakers by a washed up B-baller.

Nike stop being lazy hire some new designers who went to school.”

Dap’s Response:

“Hey!!! Filthy.. I know the name isn’t sugar.. but sometimes you just want to hear the sound of base kicking and bumping full steam from your sound system while driving in an American Manufactured Drop Top(Mustang)…..while driving down the block..(see the picture).. untill it sounds like a group of oversized Gorillas are playing Volley Ball in the middle of the street (Whattup Chuck!!!).. well.. for me the Godzilla’s do just that… ugly and all.. I feel like I’m walking on buildings… and for Sir Charles… He’s isn’t washed up.. He’s just not Crisp (denial)… as for Nike… yea for real..  it’s time to step the game up.. Retro’s are getting a bit over kill… but.. I can still say that .. I will be purchasing those  CB4 Og colorways.. well because.. I’m just that .. a sneaker fiend that loves oxfords, rugbies.. and wingtips…”BARKLEYSSS!!!

I recently visited the Y-3 store in Soho (again)… and made a purchase on of the dopest high tops they have out…(exception to their BBALL series)…In fact.. I’m not  bit disappointed in them.. at all.. now thinking about it.. as for Y-3..they have dropped their next variation to Hayworth’s… not a big fan of the all red and the all blues.. but I guess.. If you can see what I’m not seeing.. by all means.. cop them.. as for me .. I love the original colorway..

This past weekend… I made it my duty to not let the tricky weather get me down.. for those who can relate.. it was one of those days … where the weatherman claimed.. rainy but… turned out sunny.. (partially).. since it was a day that I spent with the fellas.. we took a trip by Bkc (new shipments)…. and ravaged through soho (the Y-3 x Negril).. in celebration of my graduation… It was one of those memorable nights.. especially since Filthy went for the Gusto.. by .. bagging a group of 12 fine women…I tilt my hat to that one…

Coming straight off of my Star Trek (2011 prequel) … experience… Filthy (a man of controversial subjects)… shot this over to me… I personally think that both of them can get it.. in the nastiest ways possible.. but thats just me.. being the pervert I am… oh .. and I recommend that everyone go out to see.. the new Star Trek movie… its a damn good one … in my opinion.. I think its the best Star Trek movie thus far.. Is it me or is … J.J. Abrams becoming the new Steven Spielberg ( I know… I know a bit over board) … but that goes to show you how good the movie is… Zoe Saldana who plays Lt. Uhara (Uh- Hu-Rah).. in the new installment.. made me want pointy ears.. for a day ..(side note: only if you saw the movie)… but if you are an original trekie .. you can definitely understand what I mean when I say….  Niche’le Nichol’s legs can raise … Captain Kirk from an Acoma… or… if your into green… like I am.. you wont knock me if I said.. Rachel Nichols.. is also .. in the running …

Terry Richardson x Photography 101

terry-richardson-vogue-homme-internationalphotos-6

I believe …. The key to a good photography is enhancing what is already there. a picture is much like a good composition in writing or a piece of music…a good photography excels at making the viewer “see” with their eyes.

iconic photographer terry richardson has an amazing vision and is and artist in his own right. there big difference is a big difference between a photographer and a picture taker.

For those who don’t know.. Terry Richardson is a Photog Veteteran .. who has done advertisement pieces  for Tommy, Gucci, Supreme, Stussy, Levi’s and so on… In this piece …. he leant an ear to a more vulgar side… (I likes, I likes)..  for a watch spread (or a playboy spread … don’t you think) entitled Auto Portraits”… The photo will be featured in the upcoming  issue of  Vogue Homme International ..

Uncle Scrooge Predicted It All!!!!!

Yesterday, I returned from Greensboro… as a new man.. a man who will be watching the news for once… and the funny thing is … when I signed up for the 3 day short-course .. I was in no way shape or form interested in becoming a reporter … maybe a photographer.. But now I might give it a try.. who knows.. I might be the next Ed Bradley .. and through the course.. I was able to gain a ton of connects ….  friends and readers… and so I Thank You Mrs. Wiggins.. for allowing me to be apart of something that probably changed my life… ( NABJ SHOUT OUT).. and  with that said .. I pushed the bar a little higher … and demanded more input from Filthy.. and as a man of his word… he did… with his introductory article..

Uncle Scrooge Predicted It All!!

Don’t we all wish we had a pimpin rich uncle that could explain it all to us?

With our economy in such turmoil, I find it quite interesting that all of this trouble could have been avoided if our policy makers paid attention to the teaching of “Uncle Scrooge”. Our feathered friend knows a lot. I mean, he is the richest duck in Duckberg!

 Talk about Filthy Rich… lol.

 Here is a video of Scrooge McDuck from the cartoon “Ducktales” explaining to his nephews the problem with inflation. You can learn a lot from birds.
