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

    dude, your mos def vs. me in a game with those WADES.. see how they do for you haha – i got my jays!

  • enjoy the gifts man,

  • J + E ill slaughter both of you. Cheers Cory, Alle I’m sure they’ll be anywhere that has a Cons account.

  • I will son all of you fools. Eug, you always talkin smack. When we get in the same city, we will have a mini-olympics. Ping pong then hoop.

Photographer Daniel Ranalli Spends Two Decades Capturing Snail Trails

“Spiral #9” (1996)


Massachusetts-based photographer Daniel Ranalli has spent more than 20 years on his “Snail Drawings,” a series which consists of one image of neatly configured snails and a second image of the unique patterns made when the snails were left to their own devices.

While a simple enough concept, Ranalli sees the project as a reflection of the inherent randomness of life and our inability to control the results or elements of a situation no matter how hard we might try! See more of Ranalli’s work below or on display at Classic Photographs Los Angeles January 21-22.

A portion of proceeds from each event go to a girl-positive organization, and this year’s festival (Jan 27-29) will support Rock n’ Roll Camp for Girls LA, a 501c3 social justice organization using loud music to nurture self-esteem and self-expression in young girls.
