Roasted Starbursts… Deliciously dangerous

Picture this: It’s a warm summer night by a lake. The sky is clear and the stars are shinning bright. The waves are slowly breaking into shore providing a cool breeze. In front of you is a crackling campfire that’s producing just enough heat to warm you toes, but keep your from getting a little too toasty.You reach to your right to find a cooler full of ice cold beer. You take a sip, it’s crisp and refreshing. Now you look to your left. Who’s there? Oh hey it’s me. You smile, I smile back. At this point if you’re a chick you’ve probably fallen in love and if you’re a guy you’re definitely starting to question yourself. “What is he making in the fire,” you ask. Oh just a little campfire snack… some roasted Starburst. I remove my roasting stick from the fire and then it appears. A gooey, delicious morsel of love rises from the flames and you can’t wait to sink your teeth in. But then a drop of fiery Starburst lava drips off and lands right on my hand. FAAAAHHHHHKKKKKKKK.

Well even after burning my hand this weekend with molten Starburst – and Lemon too, it’s like the stepchild of Starbursts – I still think that this was an incredible experience. The final product contains all the goodness of eating candy without the fear of ripping out one of your fillings by the second bite. A few seconds in the flame and you’re left with a crunchy outer shell and a warm gooey inside that surprisingly doesn’t burn your mouth. I mean look at that picture above, it’s like a heated bomb pop.

I’ll leave you with this, be careful. Have a good roasting stick, pay attention, or wear one glove like the late great MJ. Otherwise you may end up with a burn that looks like an unfinished Nike swoosh.

Just do…

NEW KICKS: Air Max Navigates

After almost a 6 month hiatus from sneaker shopping I made it back to the outlets this weekend to pick that store dry. I had every intention of buying every shoe they had on the shelf, and typically they have the shelves lined with Dunks, Air Forces, Jordans and Air Maxes. Well, this time, it was nothing like that. Somehow the store thought it would be a good idea to stock the walls with your grandfather’s walking shoes, rather than fresh kicks!

 

I couldn’t leave empty handed though. So after tearing apart the store, I found one gem… enter, my new Nike Air Max Navigates!

Marty McFly Sneakers are coming!!

So I think Elizadeath is at a client event this morning.. or at least I hope so. Otherwise, that would mean that she got kidnapped by her 1st Match.com date. So fingers crossed, she’s still alive.
Anyhew, I’m fucking shit swamped at work, like always, which sucks because I have so much stuff I want to write about this week. So many awesome pictures and stories to share, but zero time to share them. Maybe next week, or month, or year. Who knows, but for now, I came across this nice little teaser video of new sneakers Nike plans to release, the Mags, or better known as the shoes from Back to the Future.

 

By now, you should all know I’m a sneakerhead, so these are something that really excites me. You can’t tell from the video, but anyone who’s seen BTTF, knows that these sneakers lace themselves (read: fucking badass). Will I buy them? Most likely not because they’re going to be marked as $800. Will I talk about buying them? every. fucking. day.

Found my Birthday cake

So my birthday is coming up… and by coming up I mean its well over a month away. Minor details. Anyhew, I came across the best cake for the special day. So anyone out there who is looking to surprise me for this milestone year, feel free to copy this model. Not sure who Scott is, but I’m stealing his cake, and his sneakers too.

whaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaat

Man vs Fox

MOSCOW — A wounded fox shot its would-be killer in Belarus by pulling the trigger on the hunter’s gun as the pair scuffled after the man tried to finish the animal off with the butt of the rifle, media said Thursday.

The unnamed hunter, who had approached the fox after wounding it from a distance, was in hospital with a leg wound, while the fox made its escape, media said, citing prosecutors from the Grodno region.

“The animal fiercely resisted and in the struggle accidentally pulled the trigger with its paw,” one prosecutor was quoted as saying.

Like I always say, never turn your back on a wounded fox. These shifty mo-fo’s have no remorse. They will shoot you, stab you, take your wallet, and cut you for your Nikes, they are ruthless. Have you ever seen Fantastic Mr. Fox… I think that says it all.

Who chopped down the shoe tree!?

FALLON, Nev. – Vandals in northern Nevada have chopped down the landmark “shoe tree” that was a popular stopping point for travelers on U.S. 50.

Authorities say the 70-foot cottonwood near Middlegate was cut down late Thursday or early Friday. Fresh sawdust was found on the snow.

I just hope someone has been stuffing Odor Eaters in those kicks because there is no fucking way that tree smelled anywhere close to a pine air freshener. I know how sneakers can get. That tree clearly smelled like a bag of busted assholes and whoever cut it down was doing the ozone a favor. Okay okay, but I kid. Seriously, I feel for these people and I can really relate with these people. I would be completely devestated if some vandal ever cut down my shoe shelves.

seriously couldn't fit all of them in 1 picture

They should really consider having a a memorial service for the shoe tree. What? They actually are? Oh now we’re just taking this a little too far.

Get me this book!

So the skateshop POETS posted a picture of a the “Nike SB Dunk” book and from one picture, I can already tell I want my hands on it. They spoke nothing of what is inside of it or what secrets it holds. All I can gather is that based on the dates listed on the binding is that it is a comprehensive book of all of SB styles and colorways dating from 1985 until 2011. I couldn’t think of a better coffee table book for my apartment, other than a coffee table book about coffee tables. So, I must repeat, GET ME THIS BOOK!

My Obsession

So on my way back from NH to celebrate the greatest country’s independence… I stopped at the Nike store to pick up a fresh pair of kicks. No real story here, just another addition to the collection. See for yourself… fresh? I think so. I’m thinking of posting every new pair I buy moving forward. Be on the lookout for the next installment.

Elizadeath: So fresh. Love em. P.S. your mom wanted to throw away a pair of your shoes this weekend. She said they were heinous. I told her to walk away before she made an irrational decision and ended up in a terrible situation…
