Nike’s “Basketball Never Stops” campaign is a pretty cool idea. I mean, basketball doesn’t really stop, it’s always played. Basketball will continued to be played in high school, college, overseas and etc. NBA basketball is what the people want to see. I don’t like how they are trying to mask the whole situation with the NBA Lockout. NBA players have been playing everywhere this summer and that’s cool and all, but people want to see these guys play in uniforms. Guys are having stats like 60pts, 20rebs, 20ast games. Come on now, they won’t even do that in a real NBA game, but they say the games are competitive smh. Give the people what they want to see, no doubt. But let’s be real, basketball has STOPPED for the NBA. So check out the commercial and let me know what you think.
The New York Knicks edition of the Spizikes are hitting retailers now. This edition has been anticipated for awhile now and they will released on November 4. These are definitely one of my favorite colorways and I can’t to get them. They go for $175 each, so put your money up and go cop a pair.
The Hyundai Veloster is a hell of car. It may be small but it packs a punch. Starting off at $17, 300, the 3-door Veloster has style and it’s good on the pockets. It saves up to 40 MPG hwy and has a reasonable price. It has a standard 7-inch multimedia touchscreen and it can be personalized with one of three visual themes and it also has a rearview camera when backing up. You can also watch video and play video games when parked. I would recommend this car for anybody who wants a stylish car without having to reach deep in there pockets. You can get more details about the Veloster on hyundaiusa.com. So go check it out.

This was a random thought of mine and I couldn’t get it out my head. Do you remember the sportsmanship commercial where the this kid told his coach he hit the ball out of bounds during a crucial moment in the championship game? When I first seen the commercial, I was like that shit would never happen. First of all, when he told the coach what he did he would have been sent to the locker-room for saying that lol. Second, the referee wouldn’t change the call just because he said he touched it. I know referees! I know they tried to send a good message but they have to do better than that lol. I was just as mad as his teammates lol. Check out a host of a radio station giving his input and then watch out the video.
This a must see movie. I had a chance to watch the original, which was released in 2009. The movie is about a journalist Mikael Blomkvist, who is aided in his search for a woman who has been missing for forty years by Lisbeth Salander, a young computer hacker. Now it may sound like a boring movie, but it was a great thriller . After watching the original I feel like the American version will have a tough time trying to hang. I’m not saying that it can’t be better, especially with a cast of Daniel Craig, Rooney Mara, Christopher Plummer and Steven Berkoff. I’m just saying it will be tough. The original won numerous awards and was a complete success overseas. But can the success translate to America? I recommend people to go see this movie. So if you haven’t seen the trailer, check it out below and if you have seen the original version, let me know what you thought about it.

J. Cole has a new video for one of my favorite songs “Lost Ones”. The song is about dealing with pregnancy at a young age and what many young people go through when deciding on what to do. I know a lot of people can relate because it happens more often than you think. J. Cole said this is one of his favorite songs and he held on to this song for four years. So shout out to J. Cole for this jam. Check the video out.
Banksy is a pseudonymous England-based graffiti artist, political activist, film director, and painter. His street art is a combination of dark humor and real life. His work of political and social commentary have been featured on streets, walls, and bridges of cities throughout the world. Banksy was born in Bristol, England, and is known for his contempt for the government in labelling graffiti as vandalism. Banksy displays his art on public surfaces such as walls and even going as far as to build physical prop pieces.
