Thank you, Converse!

A giant box arrived at my doorstep today, return address: Converse. I opened it up to find a pair of Dwayne Wade 4’s and a pair of Elton Brand 1’s! Oh and matching t-shirts! This site might not be making me rich but stuff like this is nice. Thank you to all the great people over at Converse! PS – If anyone over at Blackberry wants to send over a Blackberry Bold I’ll take good care of it! (worth a try)

  • that dwayne wade logo is really cool. when i was a kid and got new sneakers, we would initiate them by getting them all dirty. i don’t think that’s done these days ;). sneakers are a lot more expensive and collectible. are you going to actually where them, outside?

  • well not necessarily outside ill keep one pair for strictly indoor courts but i will play basketball in them for sure, im not the type to keep sneakers in a shoe box. i have absolutely murdered some shoes that woulda made some sneaker collectors cringe but they are meant to be worn!

  • oh and yea i like that logo alot

  • right on!

  • Jolin

“The Omega Project” by Rone

Rone continues his exploration of doomed and abandoned spaces with his latest immersive exhibition. “The Omega Project” sees the Melbourne-based artist setting up shop in a condemned suburban cottage in his hometown. Granted access and free rein before it’s torn down, Rone has filled the early 1900s weatherboard house with his signature ‘Jane Doe’ portraits. He also teamed up with interior stylist, Carly Spooner, to recreate the archetypal interiors, furthering the jarring mix of beauty and destruction particular to the experience of street art. As Rone explains:

“The concept of creating something beautiful within the context of decay and decline is central to the experience of any street artist. As is the idea that whatever you create might be gone the next day. For the artist, street art is all about embracing that transience and impermanence. And for the audience, it’s about seeing it (and taking photos of it) while you can”

Click here to check out the incredible 3D tour created by Phoria as well as more images and video below. While the exhibition starts July 22 and runs until the end of the month, the exact location will only be disclosed via email tomorrow morning to those who RSVP!
