A new addition with a more general overview of people
I think have good style, in whatever they do.
First up, BP. Skate to create.
*There is no order to this really, the numbers are as I
do them - they all have steez*
A new Air Max from Nike, the Skyline is actually quite
nice looking and a bit of a break form the constant re-releasing.

Objectified is the new documentary by Gary Hustwit
who created the Helvetica doc.
This one is about industrial design and looks at the
creativity at work behind loads of products.
Featuring contributions from Marc Newson and
Paola Antonelli as well as a host of others it looks
well worth checking when it's premiered in March.
Converse have created 1000 books containing a
pair of shoes to celebrate the 100th anniversary
of the Canvas All Star.
Each of the books contains a pair of shoes and
the book details the history of the Canvas All
Star brand, and along the theme of "Star".
It also has interviews by 100 of today's biggest stars with
the interview/conversations being undertaken by 100
creatives picked by Converse. Looks interesting and
the packaging is different.

Another link I should have already posted was this one to
a fine wee film of some skateboarding in Aberdeen (and
Glasgow too). Featuring the likes of John Rattray, Callum
Barrack, Benson and Div & Colin Adam it's all crafted by
Alex Craig and so both footage and filming are smashing.
Check it out here.

I have not done one of these in a long time so here is what
iTunes felt was suitable for playing as I posted the items below.
1. Clarence "Frogman" Henry - "Ain't Got No Home"
2. Justin Warfield - "Fisherman's Grotto"
3. Cat Power - "Say"
4. TV On The Radio - "Shout Me Out"
5. The Hello People - "Wheat Germ"
I'm sure the Florida traffic department are still curious as
to where thousands of shoes appeared from on one of
their highways the other day. No matter where they came
from it held up the traffic for a while and I'll bet a few people
went raking around to see what was amongst the piles.
The full story is here.
