CONVERSE Opens Specialty Retail Store in SoHo NYC
Okay, we might have to correct our previous statement. However short, there was a brief line-up in front of the just opened CONVERSE Specialty Retail Store in SoHo during the early morning hours of Black Friday. Strangely enough, an impromptu poll showed that almost all weren’t there for the “specialty” items but regular Chucks. A few avid fans from European even brought the same Chucks with sizings from infant to adulthood. When asked, they said they wanted their children to have nothing but Chucks for the rest of their lives. A bit fanatical don’t you think?
This will be a very special holiday season indeed.

Indeed it was only a matter of time. Finally, our friends at ilovedust got the credit they long deserved as the latest participants in Kiehls Creme de Corps series of skincare. Congrats guys!

Armed with fire extinguisher size 8-Liter Applicator from KRINK, artists made a quick work of the mural by Barry McGee and Josh Lazcano (aka Amaze) before sunrise. By the day’s first light, the work was all but covered, brandishing a new memorial mural to artist Dash Snow. But being that this in New York City, the memorial mural is gone as well, replaced by a new one by Kenny Scharf.
In the pursuit of all that is fast and furious, Electronic Arts spared no expenses on the latest title to come out of Need For Speed gaming franchise, Hot Pursuit. This included a Pagani Zonda Roaster F, a refitted Lamborghini (as a highway patrol car), and a helicopter. There is no CGI, no special effects, no wordy dialogs. Simply just raw power and sheer speed.
