No matter how the holiday originated or why it is popular it has definitely become a time that brings family together. People make plans a month ahead on where they are going to eat and how much they are going to eat. You seek out cousins that you honestly can't stand any other time of the year and embrace uncle's that can't even remember your name or how your related all to eat more than you thought your stomach could hold and past out not too long after the utensil's are down.
Striped bass based in paprika and old bay seasonings sautéed in a soup of cooking oil, onions, scallion, red peppers, green peppers, tomato's, thyme, scallion and garlic, on a bed of cilantro, on a very low fire.
Hope you all enjoyed your Thanksgiving Day feast.
This picture is genius.
With that idea out of the way I just want to welcome Eric Koston to the Nike team, it's a great company to work for and it is only a matter of time before the people outside of the street wear/ sneaker culture realize that Nike runs the world. While half-heartedly watching the Orlando Magic string along a game against the Miami Heat and searching for some new content to be content with I stumbled onto the Hypebeast site where I caught a glimpse of this picture.
Watching the video interview with Koston one theme remained constant in my mind "this guy really appreciates a good trainer". A lot of people that are fans of good trainers are only fans of the way the trainer looks and disregard the way it wears, the level of comfort or the craftsmanship that goes into the complete production. To me it's the little things that make the trainers really good. However when you take someone that really appreciates the minor details that go into the creation of a trainer and give them the opportunity to design trainers that person is going to put together some great trainers.

When I saw this picture I thought back to when I first became aware of the existence of these two very individual individuals and the whole Award Tour movement. The year was 2005, Demetri and I went to the same school and his fly gear was getting him a lot of recognition and forced on lookers to compare him to people two grades ahead of him. Juice was infamous at that time for being a free spirit. He basically did what he wanted to, when he wanted to & regardless of what you think of him he demands your respect. P & I didn't formerly meet up with these two and the rest of the crew until 2006 at a fashion show in Brooklyn due to the fact that there was a mutual friend at the time doing everything in his power to ensure that we all never became friends.
It's been three years and some months since the first time I met these guys and what I must say that it was a beautiful day in space when we all met because it was like we all instantly became family. I can go weeks without talking to Juice but when we link up again something happened to one of us that the other completely understands and we just happen to be building on the same ideas. Demetri and I think so much alike that I can almost predict his moves. More recently I've been calling him my nephew due to a situation I had to help him out of in which I impersonated his uncle.
They say blood is thicker than water but I believe when you actually choose the people that you want to consider family it is a stronger bond than the family you are born into.
