Here's Futura talking about his love of baseball and other Nike releases.
And in case you missed it, Futura's Cathedrals of the Game photo collection of baseball ballparks is on a .406 level of greatness.
I have this habit of leaving multiple browser windows (with multiple tabs in each) open. There's a ton of cool shit on this internet thing. This is a habit that I'm working to break, so as I close some windows, here are some more great links.
Yes, it's Celtics-Lakers in the finals. Yeah, it's a great rivalry that goes way back. I used to be a big fan of UNDFTD...until now. It's fine to attack the Celtics and say "Celtics suck" but this isn't cool. "Beat LA" means beat the LA Lakers, not beat the actual city. Boston's "Yankees Suck" chant (hate it or love it) attacks the team, not the city of New York. I hate the Yankees and the Lakers but I don't hate the cities they call home. Go after the team, not the city.
It's a Lamar Odom x Undefeated collaboration and some of the money goes to his charity, but it's still a huge goon move. Look for my UNDFTD shirts on ebay very soon.
And guess when I heard that, when I was back, home"
Three and a half days in Boston and I made the most of them.
A while ago, Jessie told me about Kanye's Glow in the Dark tour and that's what got this trip home started. She deserves a huge thank you because we all know I don't come home enough.
- I landed at Logan and took the T to Government Center. I miss taking the train, so taking the T was both welcomed and relaxing. The T is so much better than LA traffic and $4/gallon gas prices. I walked from Govt Center to my brother's work and seeing everyone out with their Celtics (and Red Sox) gear on was awesome. There was a sports buzz in the Boston air that can't be matching by anything in LA; not even Laker playoff "buzz."
I went to game 5 of the Celtics/Cavs series. Jay-z was there cheering on his boy Lebron but it didn't matter: my brother and I were there. Vince had his "Paul Pierce throw your 3's up foam fingers" that he made and I had my Celtics gear on. Those 3 foam fingers are the greatest thing I've seen in a while and V is a genius for making them. C's won by seven.
Kanye West. Possibly/probably the best live performance I have ever seen in my life.
Seriously, I can't say enough about how amazing his performance was. If you still have a chance to see him live, go see him live. You can thank me later. Even if you think he's an arrogant douche, go see him. He was that great. 90 straight minutes of Kanye West. 90 straight minutes of Kanye giving it his all...he was on his game like a perfect game. The only person there who didn't love it was the dude sitting next to Jessie. He slept for Kanye's entire performance. No Joke. He was slouched in his chair and asleep for Ye's whole set. I have no idea what his deal was.

I went to my friend's brand new condo. It was awesome; I loved it. It rekindled my desire to buy my own place. I hate renting...
Henrietta's Table - Mother's Day Breakfast with the fam.
Every time I go home, it's never for enough time. Three days makes me want to spend three weeks there and I know that three weeks would make me want to spend three months at home...
