Converse has shown off its latest footwear collection, this time featuring UV-activated sneakers. The Nike-owned company has collaborated with Chinatown Market to produce the novel, colour-changing shoe, which they have named the “UV Chuck 70” collection.

The sneakers have the classic Chuck Taylor All-Star design: star insignia, the All Star’s rubber sole, smooth rounded toe cap, and wrap-around strip.

The canvas upper begins as white, but when exposed to direct sunlight it morphs into a colour-blocked design of blue, orange, fuschia and purple. It’s like having 2 sets of shoes in 1.

What kind of wizardry is this??

Since my blog is 20% intellectual and 80% hooker, the title is appropriate. 

This video is from 2017, which is approximately 600 years in internet time, but HuffPo just brought it to my attention, and honestly, the phrase “too old” doesn’t apply to an extremely important sports video like this one.

It’s not known where this is or when it was exactly filmed, but details like that don’t matter, because the only thing that matters is that Ben is the ruler of golf courses everywhere and isn’t about to let your ball drop in the hole on his watch.

Every time the golfer tries to put a ball in the hole, Ben gets on that ball like a thirsty gay in a dark room. A golfer hasn’t been done in by pussy this hard since that cheating mega slut Tiger Woods passed his peen to every poon imaginable, which cost him a chunk of his fortune.

 
Kitties should now be mandatory at all golf courses.

Otherwise SNOREFEST!

Sony Walkman 40 Anniversary Exhibition by Ginza Sony ParkKids of the ’80s and ’90s are sure to remember the Walkman.

The portable media player was first originally released on July 1, 1979 and revolutionised the way people listened to music, it allowed us to listen to tunes on the go.

It was created by SONY co-founder Masaru Ibuka, who felt the brand’s existing portable player was too heavy, bulky, and expensive. The first Walkman prototype was built by modifying an old Sony Pressman, a compact tape recorder designed for journalists. Since then, the Walkman became popular worldwide, and as the years went on, its design, specifications, and media formats evolved.

In celebration of Walkman’s 40th anniversary, SONY has opened a retrospective exhibition in Tokyo’s Ginza district.

Titled The Day the Music Walked, it’s part of #009 WALKMAN IN THE PARK, a program that focuses on real people who had Walkmans, and the stories of how the device became part of their everyday lives.

The exhibition will also feature a Walkman Wall, presenting around 230 versions of the iconic gadget throughout history from chunky cassette players, to portable CD players, to sleek MP3 players.

Which model did you have?

I gotta say although Walkman was my generation my parents never bought me one. When I had my first job as a teen, one of the first thing I bought was a CD player, and I can see in the picture above.

Also when I was kid, I remember that I used to record my favourite songs on cassettes from a radio station and then, play them and rewind them to write the lyrics on a piece of paper (I’m an old vampire).

The internet didn’t exist, and nothing of the easy digital era we live today. 

The Day the Music Walked is now open to the public through September 1, 2019. Find out more on the Ginza Sony Parwebsite.

Such good memories!

Life is a meaningless series of mundane disappointments, but sometimes it surprises you. And sometimes that surprise is a butt belonging to former One Direction singer Liam Payne. 

Payne recently worked with Mert and Marcus photographer Mert Alas, the man responsible for the above glorious Instagram, on a Hugo Boss campaign.

I did not see the campaign when it happened, perhaps because I couldn’t care less about Liam, but also because he was not nude (or nearly nude) in those images.

Either way, I’m a new fan! lol

Some of us humans are not-so-patiently waiting for another species to finally take over the world and become our new overlords (since we have fucked shit up), and I always thought it was a race between cats and raccoons. But I’ve been sleeping on birds!

Birds have already tamed Alexa, proved that pussies ain’t the only ones with 9 lives, and mastered the art of tricking a human.

And now they’re moving toward taking away the role of “man’s best friend” from dogs by learning how to bark!

In a video from Roodepoort, Gauteng, South Africa, a bunch of dogs bark at the front gate, and one of them is a really weird-looking dog who looks like he’s about to go off to his night job as a showgirl in a floor show at a casino. But that weird-looking showgirl dog isn’t a dog, he’s a parrot who thinks he’s dog!

“My parrot is like a child in the house he has been part of the family for nineteen years. He grew up amongst dogs and is lovable and super intelligent. He copies many human and dog actions. He loves cuddling and playing with the dogs. He is truly one of a kind.”

And with such fabulous hair! So adorable.

These are all gorgeous, fabulous photos and beautiful dogs.

The Internet is the perfect place for challenges of all calibres and lengths. From “Ice Bucket” to the dumb and irresponsible “Bird Box,” challenges come and go in waves, with some lingering for longer while others quickly become a thing of the past.

Well, a new challenge has recently emerged and thank goodness it doesn’t involve wandering around the streets with a blindfold.

Today, it involves a bottle cap and some impressive martial art moves. Well, at least that’s where it began, considering that the challenge quickly changed its course with more and more humorous versions emerging.

A Taekwondo expert known as Master Fa first posted a video of himself kicking a cap of a bottle back on June 25. He then challenged Jason Statham, Conor McGregor, Jean-Claude Van Damme, and Jackie Chan to do the same.

And as Statham and McGregor responded, the challenge took off and people of all sorts of backgrounds joined in.

Take a look: 

Karate dude Sensei Seth at 2:15 mark was pretty impressive.

I mean, I’m in love lol

And also one of the most EPIC was MASTER Donnie Yen, reminding us all why HE’S A LEGEND!

Fun!!
