This week has been slightly crazed at the Freshness office because New York City has been hopping this week. First, (capsule) and Agenda has our calendars filled with Spring/Summer 2011 previews, not to mention a great roof top party to wrap things up with. Then, we learned that Andy Warhol has once bought 2,000 bottles of Dom Perignon with a group of friends. Lindsay Lohan manages to score some cover time prior to jail time; and speaking of time, some people has proven that given enough time and dedication (17 months to be exact) you can become Daft Punk. Aside from this, Nike wrapped things up for World Cup and released what looks like a resolution video, headline--"The Future Has Been Written". Last but not least, we had a chance to hang out with the Manchester City boys at Sarah D. Roosevelt park for a quick Thursday afternoon soccer pick up, and then Saturdays on Crosby gets a little crowded with Quiksilver and National Forest's launch. Check out the full scope of a busy week, as we are about to leave summer behind and head into the end of glorious summer days and hell-bent, relentless heat in the giant oven known as New York City.

Sadly, none of the original Nike "Write The Future" stars has written much of anything. Iniesta on the other hand, has written the future, and has earned a legendary status in Spain for himself.

Apple made a boo boo and Antenn-aid is here to make it all better. We are not sure if these would work, but humor definitely scored these little stickers some points.

She may be headed off to jail, but the once upon a time beloved child actress proves that aside from impending jail time, she can still get some cover time so no one forgets about her while she's in an orange jumpsuit behind bars.
