"UPular"

This here is a song based on samples throughout Disney Pixar's blockbuster "UP". It's cute and catchy, I have been trying to find time to watch this movie but hopefully I will get around to it soon. In the meantime...enjoy!

Tune-ee Tuesday

KiD CuDi "cudderisback" - Directed by Jason Goldwatch from DP on Vimeo.



"Cudderisback" by KiD CuDi video. This track is a good one, sampled from Vampire Weekend. This video here is from a stop by Boston that goes with the song. Video gave me a good laugh and was entertaining. Check it out.


I was flipping through old CD's in my car the other day. Most CD's are super scratched but I just like seeing what I had been listening to throughout highschool and such. As I was going through a CD through my tenth grade I found "Heard 'em Say" with YEEEZZZY and Adam Levine(from Maroon 5). I can't get it out of my head and have been vibing to it for the past two days. Keep checking every Tune-ee Tuesday for G.O.O.D. music, no pun intended....kidding I thought it was funny.

Marriage

So today around 7:30 this evening my friend sent me a text telling me about an engagement. I think it's a joke, people saying congratulations and such. I have been bitching about it with my girlfriend and friend all night. Rumor has it they are just doing it to move in together, she is 18 and he is 19. Just engaged and are planning on marrying in August! Sounds super wack to me. Seems like the most immature thing to do, if I was a parent I would not stand for it. Neither of them own vehicles and are in school at the moment, they both are broke too! GET YOUR LIFE STRAIGHTENED. I would never let my friends or family pull this shit off.

Pen pals

My sister was best friends with this girl named Haley. She had moved to Australia at the beginning of the school year. It's super sad because all they have to keep in contact is my mother's e-mail. Today when I got home from work my sister asked me to take a picture of herself so she could send it to her friend. Haley had been sending pictures of herself and Australia. Each message sent to one another consists of how much they miss each other. Makes me thankful for the friends I have and that I am able to see everyone as often as I can. So to whoever reads this: I love you all!

Haiti

The Haiti earthquake had a terrible effect on both the country and the world. I am glad that everyone is donating to help contribute to this disaster. Most companies have been trying to do what they can to make money or help raise awareness to everyone. UNDRCRWN recently came out with this t-shirt.



Award Tour had recently sold out all of their beanies where proceeds would be donated to Haiti as well. Orisue had also had a warehouse sale where all earnings would be donated to Haiti. This makes me happy how there are so many people who find the time and have the heart to do the right thing.

Comune

"COMUNE was formed from the idea that there will always be people out there who not only embrace the rawness and imperfections of every day life but also use it to creatively push the boundaries of what’s possible in fashion, art, and music their own way, with complete disregard of the consequences. Their goal is to provide clothing that reflects this lifestyle of carefree idealism and to support the people that choose to live it."

This new brand that Momentum is receiving has both a skate and snow team. That dressy/skate look is a must. Mo will be receiving this in the fall, take a look at a coat JJ posted on www.fromthefeetup.ca

Kobe V "Dark Knight"


These new Kobe V's release tomorrow at Harlem House of Hoops. But there will also be a limited amount of these on the Nike basketball website. It says that they will also appear at select Nike retailers. This being said if you are looking for a pair to ball in check out Footlocker or Momentum on 8th. Personally if I played ball I would definitely rock these, they're clean, sleek and are hella light.

Nike Air Safari LE

Nike has been working with the safari print a lot within the last three years or so. The OG Nike Safari runner came out in 1987. The difference with these are that there has never been the safari on the ankle lining or laces and this colourway has not been used yet. Purple is also a super popular colour for tees and sweaters at the moment and they definitely have not been pushing out a whole lot of nice purple sneakers. I would recommend looking into these bangers. I am hoping to see these at Momentum.

Nike SB 2010

I haven't purchased a pair of SB's since 2008, they were Goodfella high dunks. Since then there have only been a few pairs that I have been interested in. Such as the Brainwrecks, Triumvir3's, Bruins, HUF Blazers and Stefan Janoski's.

Here are some examples of this years SB's:
Nike SB Blazer "Shoe"



Nike SB Dunk Mid


Nike SB Dunk High


And my favorite of the four
Nike SB Dunk High "Oceanic Airlines" QS


Check out your local shops to find these within the year.

Hello City!

Hey, it's Dallas here. As you know, I am the newest hello city blogger. I hope that I will be able to bring my own ideas to this blog. So let me start by giving you a little insight into my life.

The other day I was watching the food network, and after watching a particuliar cook conjour up a delicious dish, I decided I wanted to try my hand at it. I settled on a seafood, wild marinated salmon. So began my journey as I spent my work break looking for the right ingredients. This morning I mixed the ingredients and after spending thirty minutes learning to mince garlic, it was ready to marinate.
I plan on cooking it tonight, i'll post pictures and let you know how it goes. Hopefully I won't go to bed hungry tonight.

Dallas.

Kr3w Footwear



Are you kidding me?! These are disgusting, are they not happy with Supra? Supra is doing very well with teenage kids within the past two years. With Supra doing so well, why introduce something like this? I really can't see someone wearing these unless they have mad love for TK. The new Kr3w sneakers are not meant for skating but purposefully for "looking good". So I would like to say that they're useless. Due to comments on High Snobiety people say shit like "Stick to cloths", I fully agree.

Diamond x Maybach Music


Diamond Supply is really known for collaborations with other companies and rappers. This one here is with Rick Ross, and even though Rick Ross isn't the best lyrically or even the best dressed. He did manage to come up with a sick collab, personally I would cop this. It has that tropical feel and to have both of the pieces would be nice. But these are very limited and will not be able to be found in Saskatoon. If you are that interested I would suggest to hit up Hypebeast Forums, know people in LA who are willing to stand in line over night or to ebay.

Partnership

Today I had a talk with my good friend Dallas during class. We have been good friends for the past four years from both school and soccer. He had known that I was writing a blog for fun and I felt like he could bring another personality to the site. Dallas has the same but also different interests than myself and through his posts you will get to know what he's like. Look out for his posts.

Tune-ee Tuesday

Majority of the Tuesday's I am going to begin posting music that I think everyone else will enjoy, but something less mainstream.

This song is called "Blu Collared Workers" by Blu and Exile. I recommend downloading this cd, it is called "Below the Heavens". This album came out in 2007 but still doesn't get old. Blu has ridiculous flow and parts of this song are pretty humorous. Hopefully everyone enjoys it as much as I do.

Tattoos?


So I was thinking/planning on getting a tattoo in a few years. Not just a typical plain tattoo but something meaningful to myself. What are your thoughts on tattoos, are they over played like belly button rings? Also how bad is the pain? Cause I am a hater against needles. Share your experiences with me.

Ronaldinho VS. Siena



He's still got it.

Janoski SB


So this summer I am planning on going to Barbados for three weeks with a friend. I don't really own a beach shoe and am not planning on wearing sandles due to my toes being destroyed from soccer. This shoe is a shoe that looks a lot better after being worn in, has that cali style and is definitely affordable. Nike SB dropped this model this month, tell me what you think.
