KEITH HARING AT THE DE YOUNG

A quick look at the de Young’s massive new Keith Haring retrospective, The Political Line. Focusing on Haring’s more deliberately political works, the pieces take on consumer culture, technology, sexuality, and racism head on, and span the length of Keith’s short but prolific career.

Cliche though it may be, I think it’s worth restating every once in a while. The destination is cool, but the journey is really what it’s about. Everybody wants to blow up, particularly if they’re doing their thing exceptionally well. But once you’re there, you’re there, and there’s no turning back. As far as Mike […]

I’m always curious to know what NBA players say to each other during a game. Like during a free throw, when they zoom in and Kobe and Chris Paul are leaning over talking to each other. Are they talking shit? Are they making plans to grub after the game? So it’s always tight when you […]

It’s funny. It’s hard to talk about other things when all I can think about is tomorrow. Nonetheless, I thought this video was pretty special. MJ and Letterman in the 80’s. At the age of 23, MJ was already a force in the league, having dropped 63 on the Celtics earlier in the year, Jordan […]

You know what? I’m not even surprised. It’s supposed to be like this. We told you it was a Renaissance. But really, who would’ve thought? The first female to ever design a pair of Jordans? None other than the formidable Va$htie Kola. Remember this is the first woman to design a pair of J’s, not […]

Being born in Jordan’s prime could be considered a gift and a curse. Although we can attach our childhood to the career of the greatest hooper ever, how many of us can really recall moments from MJ’s career before he went to baseball? That’s why youtube’s so wonderful. The clip above is from a ’92 […]

BACK IN THE U.S.S.R.

Ukrainian Graphic designer Mykola Dosenko on NES graphics, vintage hoops and dinner with Bill Murray

Recently I had the opportunity to chat with Mykola Dosenko, also known as Myk Dawg. Born and raised in Kiev, Ukraine, Mykola’s inspirations paint an interesting portrait of popular culture in the late 80’s and early 90’s. A self proclaimed graphic designer, celebrity chef, comedian and stunt driver, it was not difficult to strike up […]

THE TOP 10 FROM ’88

I don’t know about you but that dunk contest last night was pretty hurt. It was so hurt it has me lowering my hopes for the All-Star Game. Just in case the game doesn’t satisfy, we can all settle on this one and get our fill. Peep these lineups though. Vicious.

Back in the day errybody had some J’s. Let’s take a moment to recap some of the more memorable footwear choices. Brody had the snakeskins. Krisauce had the low VIII’s. Ocean had the XIV’s. Snick still has his XI’s in the drawer. Among other kicks, Case had the Oly VI’s, Kof’s got the DMP’s, Dom’s […]

A little gold for the weekend. In 1983 Michael Jordan was a 20-year old college student. Like many of us, his understanding of the world was being shaped and reshaped during college. This is before Air Jordan. This is before it was cool to have his shoes. Before baggy shorts and gold chains. When these […]
