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?

  • http://www.jeffhamada.com/ jeffhamada

    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!

Another fantastic video by New Media Limited for Yeasayer. “Silly Me” is the prequel to “I Am Chemistry”, and both have a wonderfully strange animation style. Watch it over on Booooooom TV.
