New Balance Made in USA Weekender Bag Collection   January 2015

2014 saw New Balance rolling out its flagship retro silhouettes through a series of thematic collections, and the trend looks to continue in 2015. Another mini-trend was to build out the shoes in all leather builds, doing away with the traditional suede and mesh combinations we’ve grown accustomed to. One such collection we can expect is the Weekender Bag range, featuring fan favorites the 990 and 997. Both made in the USA silhouettes are inspired by the sort of high-end bags vacationers use for a weekend getaway, dressed in varying shades of brown and tan. Look for the kicks to launch in stores January 2015.

Lightshow

The Way I See It is hosted by DJ Khaled which is an honor in itself and Lightshow shows us why he deserves throughout this whole 22-track mixtape.

The Way I See It also provides us with some dope variety from Lightshow as he gives us hard-hitting tracks, songs for the ladies, and also some reflective tracks with insight into his inner thoughts. Give it a listen.

Darko The Super - Oh, No! It_s Darko

Oh, No! It’s Darko is the latest album from Pennsylvania-based human hip-hop experiment, Darko The Super, inspired by the 1982 synth pop release Oh, No! It’s Devo. Darko takes from his influence of musicians like Devo, Oingo Boingo, Frank Zappa, and The Spits, and applies them to this soulful hip hop opus. Each track is produced by Darko’s beat making alias Doc Heller, who’s sample-based style compliments The Super’s strange yet whimsical singing and rhyming. Released on cassette by experimental DIY label Already Dead Tapes & Records, this is a rap album like no other of recent times and is Reminiscent of MF Doom‘s Operation: Doomsday and Beck‘s Mellow Gold.

Darko deals with rejection and confusion in these tales of love and fear. It starts with the track The First Slit Is The Deepest, which references Cat Stevens timeless classic ‘The First Cut Is The Deepest’, opening the album with the line “They spit me out”, which is also the opening song on The Spits legendary #2 record. Darko weaves his web of pop culture references throughout this album from the lyrics to the track titles. His song about being dumped, ‘Only A Fad’, is a reference to the amazing ‘Only A Lad’ album by Oingo Boingo. The title for ‘Until The Day I Die And Then For A Couple Days After That’ is a direct quote from Phillip Seymour Hoffman‘s character in the film Pirate Radio. ‘In The Someday’, a song about unrequited love, is also a lyric from Nirvana‘s ‘I Hate Myself And Wanna Die’. The self deprecating track ‘Song For Dr. Dre To Sell’ is a reference to Das Damen‘s cover of The Beatles Magical Mystery Tour titled ‘Song For Michael Jackson To $ell’ off of Marshmellow Conspiracy. Darko’s story of suicide, ‘Crown of Thorns’ is also a reference to the movie Dead Poets Society. All together Oh, No! It’s Darko is a wonderful representation of angst, love, and anxiety. Anyone in those positions who also loves progressive music just may enjoy the stylings of Darko The Super.

American Sniper featuring Bradley Cooper   Official Trailer 2 | Video

Winner of the American Film Institute’s Movie of the Year award as well as two more prizes from the National Board of Review, American Sniper is a biographical account of Chris Kyle, a trained sniper assigned to United States Navy SEALs Team 3. Nicknamed by the Iraqi insurgents as “The Devil of Ramadi,” Kyle was accredited with 160 confirmed enemy kills, which made him one of the most decorated snipers among his peers. Directed by Clint Eastwood, the film goes beyond Kyle’s accomplishments on the battlefield, however, and instead gives, in typical Eastwood fashion, an all-inclusive account of Kyle as a son, husband, and father. With a nearly unrecognizable Bradley Cooper as Chris Kyle and actress Sienna Miller as Kyle’s wife Taya, American Sniper will be in theaters on January 16th, 2015. ‘Til then, you can catch the movie’s second trailer after the click below.

12 Days of Freshness: 2014 Holiday Gift Guide | Day Ten

Christmas is finally upon us, Freshness readers. We’re officially just seven short nights away from the one day we all work so hard to enjoy. By this time next week, we’ll be warm at home stuffing our bellies, unwrapping presents, arguing with family and watching basketball. It’s a beautiful thing, guys. Once the 25th is over, the rest of December will fly by and soon enough you’re back at your desk wondering how to wisely use up your vacation days. Make the most of this jolly time! Welcome to Day Ten of the wildly popular 12 Days of Freshness Holiday Gift Guide. It’s all the rage.

Long before they became a household name, Sony started in 1946 (right after World War II) as a small electronics shop in a department store in Tokyo. Back then it was called Tokyo Tsushin Kogyo, which roughly translates to “Tokyo Telecommunications Engineering Corporation”. Not so catchy, right? Shortly after, they created Japan’s very first tape recorder, called the Type-G. In 1958, founders Akio Morita and Masaru Ibuka reintroduced their company as “Sony”, which comes from sonus, the Latin word for ‘sound’. Years later, Sony Corporation still remains at the forefront of the optical product industry, constantly innovating and improving upon their product line. For this reason, our pick for Day Ten is the Sony Cyber-Shot DSC-RX100 Mark III.

Billionaire Boys Club x Team Epiphany 10th Anniversary T Shirt

It wasn’t that long ago when Coltrane Curtis was one of the MTV VJ, interviewing celebrities like Pharrell Williams on the red carpet. Now as one of the Managing Partner at creative agency Team Epiphany, Curtis is looking back at those times with certain fondness. So for Team Epiphany’s upcoming 10th anniversary, the company partnered with Pharrell’s Billionaire Boys Club in creating an one-of-the-kind Billionaire Boys Club x Team Epiphany 10th Anniversary graphic tee.

Emblazoned with Billionaire Boys Club’s familiar “astronaut” logo on front, the two collaborators decided to put a spin with the incorporation of Team Epiphany’s “illuminous” branding along with the number “10.” In black with white lettering, BBC only made 144 of these to be gifted to family and friends like DJ Stretch Armstrong, NYLON’s Josh Madden, Mr. Mort, BBC’s Global Brand Manager Phillip Leeds, who added “Coltrane and Team Epiphany have been supporters of ours from day one. We very rarely form partnerships and only do so with those we consider family. I want to congratulate Coltrane and Team Epiphany. Ten years is one thing, but a decade of continuous growth is on another level.”

Asked for his reflection on the last decade, Curtis said “Team Epiphany is more than a logo. Ten years means that we are not a trend and we plan to be around for 100 more. Respect to our brand partners, agency partners, friends + family.”
