Go Joe

As a kid, I was a big fan of GI Joe. I owned a ton of the toys. I mean a TON! I watched the cartoon and loved the TV only GI Joe Movie with that horribly corny Cobra King character (Cobra la la la la la la...LOL). This Summer the good folks at Paramount Pictures are releasing the feature film. Hey if Transformers can do it...

And now we get our first tease of the film. A perfect action tease (film wise)shows you some major characters, gives you some action, some special effects, a funny quip and seems to end too early. Nothing too much to look at, but makes you say "Whoa..what was that?" This is a perfect tease. Hopefully, director Steven Sommers (The Mummy films) can do what Bay did for Transformers and bring those over the top characters to life.

Take a look at the trailer: Go Joe

We're Not Hating...We're Just Saying...

Yeah the Louis Vutton sneakers you designed are OK Kanye...

But seriously, it's been two years since design master Kern designed our Dark Force Ones and we still haven't worn them because they're so fresh. Yeah, we know 'Ye...they're the same shape or platform or imprint or whatever they call it. But they're hand painted, hand carved one of ones that someone besides the new Poindexter types would actually wear.

Swagger on a hundred thousand trillion and one...still!

But congrats to Kanye on that Louis Vutton design deal...or shall we call him "Martin Louis The King Jr." LOL He's funny and crazier than a bag of dust.

Back online...umm...I think so...!!??

Wow, we think we finally got all of the stars to align to begin "blogging" again. Of course, when we first started doing this, we had to explain it to people.

"It's like our journal, but it's online and other people can read it."

"Huh? You're letting people read your journal? You put it ONLINE??" They said.

"Well, yeah but it's not as invasive as it sounds."

"You're so crazy." They said

Flash forward 7+ years and everyone and their mama (literally) has a blog. LOL Thanks to the Blogger folks for making this a lot easier than it used to be. We spent a good three weeks on our old blogging software trying to get it right and still couldn't get the little details correct. (R.I.P. Noah Grey of Greymatter). One solid week crushing the code on Blogger and things are rolling, sorta kinda how I want them. Like we told our friend Free, we had to stop trying to make a fire by rubbing two sticks together and reach for a lighter.

We're so committed to this new blog, we deleted all of the old posts from the old blog...OK it was mostly out of frustration, but who's fact checking anyway:-)

Tonight is the SAG Awards, but we'll be spending many hours watching The Curious Case of Benjamin Button (finally) in a theater with an audience instead of the screening room thing I've come to be spoiled by:-(

Congrats to Fox Searchlight and The Slumdog Millionaire folks on their Producer's Guild Award.

Congrats to Nelson George, Chris Rock, Nia Long, et al for their special jury award at Sundance for "Good Hair" and Lee Daniels, Mo'Nique and all of the "Push" folks for their whopping three awards at The 'Dance. Two years in a row we miss the cold of Park City (even thought it was freezing in NYC) and two years in a row we miss out on big tings uh gwan. Arghhh! Next year! Next year! Next year!
