Damn, I love ALIFE!
Once again, the brand doesn't disappoint us with their latest collaboration with New Era. Along with the popular "Antique A" returning in turquoise, ALIFE is introducing a new style to the 59fifty collection.
The new Felt ALIFE x New Era cap features a detailed embroidery inspired by the ALIFE Reebok Court Victory Pump, “Ball Out.” The felt is a low pile material which is much smoother and less “wooly” than what was used on the shoes (and tennis balls). They even went Skittles on us dropping multiple color hues - more than enough choices to match kicks and apparel to.
The new fitteds will be available soon at ALIFE retailers and ALIFE flagship stores.
I hope this dude is not as stupid as he sounds....In an interview with Toure' for BET's Black Carpet, southern rapper Soulja Boy was asked, “What historical figure do you most hate?” Noticing Soulja was stumped, Toure' tried to give the rapper some insight telling him, "Others have said Hitler, bin Laden, the slave masters..." To which Soulja Boy replied, "Oh wait! Hold up! Shout out to the slave masters! Without them we'd still be in Africa. We wouldn't be here to get all this ice and tattoos." What a dick head!

How would you like your feet covered in maggots? Pretty disgusting, huh? That's what I thought until I peeped these new Lazy x Adidas "Kick 3 K" sneakers.
To commemorate the Lazy for Adidas Adiartist Event, which features artist like Killer Gerbil, Sheryo, Zero, and of course Lazy, this pair of Adidas features an all too original design. Several maggots are imaged on the white sneakers which is a perfect, and squeamish, look this Halloween season.
The kicks are not yet for sale, but as soon as any release info comes out we'll be the first to put you on.
In case you couldn't keep up with my man XV's incredible series "40 Days/ 40 Nights" then boy are you in luck. Here's the complete mixtape, both day and night, all in one download. Enjoy!

Marvel Studios announced Tuesday that the "Iron Man" tandem of star Robert Downey Jr. and filmmaker Jon Favreau will assemble for the "Avengers" film, although the role announced for Favreau is that of executive producer, not director.
It's no surprise that Downey will reprise his role for the "Avengers "movie, but the official word is part of the ongoing campaign to stir excitement for the first major motion picture that will bring together superheroes from separate franchises. You can see all of this leading up to some future Comic-Con International panel that will have Downey sitting next to at least two other Oscar-nominated actors: Edward Norton, who played the Hulk this summer and is, by all appearances, on board for more action, as well as Don Cheadle, who will pick up the role of Col. James 'Rhodey' Rhodes in the "Iron Man" franchise. The Marvel announcement today made his addition to the cast official and made a point to announce that he would be in the "Avengers" film as well.
It's not clear yet who will be playing Thor, the Wasp or Ant-Man in the film, the other founding members from the Marvel Comics hero team that began in 1963 in the classic issue shown here on the left. There's also the question of who will play Captain America (the most famous Avenger, but one who didn't show up until issue No. 4 in the comics) in the hero's solo film as well as the Avengers project that will follow it into theaters in 2011, if all goes as planned. No substantive word yet on the director for either the Cap movie or the Avengers project. Favreau, of course, will direct "Iron Man 2," which is slated for 2010.
The announcement on Tuesday was a mild attempt at spinning the news coverage toward Favreau, Downey and Marvel newcomer Cheadle ("Hotel Rwanda," "Crash," "Ocean's Eleven") and away from Terrence Howard, whose ejection from the "Iron Man" franchise is still a sticky subject. Howard was poised for a meatier role in the franchise as his character is set to follow a story arc adapted from the Marvel comic books that has him getting armor of his own and becoming War Machine.
Now Cheadle, who was in action-movie mode earlier this year with "Traitor," will suit up. Why the change? "Sources close to the deal" told the Hollywood Reporter that the switch came after a salary dispute between Marvel and Howard, but the actor later told NPR that he was befuddled about that characterization. "It was the surprise of a lifetime," he told interviewer Scott Simon. "There was no explanation ... I read something in the trades implicating that it was about money or something, but apparently the contracts that we write and sign aren't worth the paper that they're printed on, sometimes. Promises aren't kept, and good faith negotiations aren't always held up."
The debated departure of Howard from the "Iron Man" cast has been a nasty jolt in an otherwise magical year for Marvel Studios, the Hollywood start-up that saw its first two projects, "Iron Man" and "The Incredible Hulk," finish among the top movies of an exceptionally crowded summer for popcorn films.

Reuters reports RZA and Dallas Jackson are co-producing a remake of Berry Gordy's cult classic martial arts film, The Last Dragon. Few details have emerged thus far, but Samuel L. Jackson has confirmed he will reprise the part of Sho'nuff the Shogun of Harlem. Dallas Jackson, whose previous film works include production on I, Robot and Norbit, is currently writing the script.
"I'm a huge fan of the original and look forward to bringing Sho'Nuff into the 21st century," says Jackson.
The as-yet-untitled project will be included as part of Motown's 50th anniversary next year. After its release in 1985, the original Last Dragon grossed nearly $26 million. There is currently no word on if RZA will score the film as well. The Wu-Tang Clan's primary beatsmith has previously scored Quentin Tarantino's Kill Bill and also Ghost Dog: Way of the Samurai. RZA and Samuel L. Jackson will also be working on the sequel to the Anime movie Afro Samurai, which is expected to be released in 2009.
