I think everyone had a "Darrin Hudson" in their lives. Darrin Hudson was in my high school, back in Marlboro, NJ. You know, that person that you had to one-up all the time. Didn't matter what it was: Gear, hair, grades, sports, whatever...it was ON. Well for Darrin and I...it was kicks. Plain and simple. Oddly enough, in a school with over 1000 kids, me and him were the only 2 really into sneakers back then. This is my blog dedicated to Darrin. This is to tell Darrin that I'm still out there, and if he wants to battle, here it is son!! Bring it!! I've since lost touch with Darrin, but thanks to him, you all get to check out the kicks I have amassed over the years. So it is here, that I will archive every pair of shoes I own. It’ll include detailed photos, a grading system, a little tidbit behind each one and every single one will be available for purchase. (Simply POST A COMMENT with your offer). Some other little goodies sprinkled throughout also. Even if I updated a different shoe every week, it would take me about 3 years to complete this project. So sit back and enjoy! The project begins January 1st, 2006...

INSPIRATION: ART

ICCoverhead.jpg

I really rarely look to art for inspiration. I never go to a museum or gallery in hopes to get an idea for my next season or design. But after a few different friends recommend I check out ART FORUM BERLIN, I decided, "Why the hell not?"...i am on vacay after all. I have been to some art fairs such as The Armory Show in NYC, which to me was always lackluster. But I was really super impressed with this one. Lots of talented young people out there doing there thing. A very brief summary of the highlights:

If I had to award a gold star to one piece...it would be this one. The entire piece (huge...about 7 ft wide x 5 ft tall) is made of shredded maps.

Right down through the wire; even through the fire.

PS: After some real world usage and field tests, I can safely say, "The new Blackberry Pearl is the best phone I have ever used in my life." Kudos RIM.
