Lot of random stuff for today so might as well start it off with today's shoe. Rocking the Nike Air Carnivore in the Light Zen Grey / Black / Oxidized Green / Purple colorway. They retailed for $110.00 and that's what I paid for them at Foot Locker. When they were retroed last it it was the first time they had been released in 17 years. The original release was in 1993 so this retro has some meaning to me as that was my senior year in high school and I remember when these dropped. I got these the week they dropped (didn't feel the need to get there at 6:00AM that Saturday, they weren't selling out that fast) and have loved them ever since. Almost any shoe Nike retro's from the '90 to '94 era I end up having to get just from the memories of those days plus I couldn't afford them back then and I can now. My wife says that's why I have most of the shoes I have. She's probably right, most wives usually are.
Went to Bluetile Skateboards yesterday to see what was new and to get an update on the "Statue of Liberty" SB's. The word I got was that the "Liberty's" were pushed back to next month and that Nike dropped the J-Pack Dunk Quickstrikes this month instead. These were limited to right around 2000 pairs and are so limited Bluetile only got 6 pairs. They are currently going for around $140 on eBay and they just came out this week. They also have some Blazers they just put on sale for $60.00 and still have sizes in the Gore-Tex Dunk Highs and in the "Yellow Curbs", "Koston Low's", "Miller High Lifes", and "Loons". Most of those are selling for $129.99 on www.pickyourshoes.com which is over retail. I attached pics below of the best stuff still available up there and suggest you get up there soon as you can to scoop up gear that's sold out everywhere else. Just make sure you let them know I sent you up there. Their number is (803)376-1880 in case you want to give them a call.

|Nike Blazer Hi Premium "Birds Nest Pack"|
Black / White / Varsity Red
|Bird's Nest Olympic Stadium|
The following pics are things I saw at the local DTLR store. All the stores up and down the East Coast should have these in their stores. The only thing I want you to know is that these sales are subject to change at any moment. DTLR changes their sales on regular basis so if you see something you should probably head up there and get it asap before the sale changes. Headed to Bluetile Skateshop in just a few to check on the Liberty SB's. Tll then, Cheapsoles.

The Lady Gaga performance was a huge let down, I'm not a huge fan of hers but I've always admired her for the craziness of her performances, but last night was tame and dull. The biggest thing I noticed about the whole thing was the fact that she totally ripped off Madonna in her song. "Born This Way" sounds almost exactly like "Express Yourself" and almost every entertainment blogger I read said the same thing. Even Madonna's brother talked about it last night before the Grammy's were over. The thing I asked on facebook last night was if Lady Gaga is a bootleg Madonna then what does that make Ke$ha? If your a rip off of a rip off what are you? I thought the Eminem performance was really good even if the Dr. Dre part was not all that great. Eminem just seemed to have a fire in him and spit his verses with passion. Rihanna and Drake were pretty good but I gotta think Beyonce want her outfit back from Rihanna. Those granny panty booty cutter shorts things she had on are a Beyonce trademark. Mick Jagger showed all the kiddies how it's done and reminded everyone that the Stones started with the blues.
As for that opening Aretha Franklin tribute, it was pretty good and introduced a lot of people to Florence from Florence and the Machine but it was also a lot of over singing by Christina. And seriously, why does she look so old all the sudden? Like I said after the Super Bowl, she looks like Cyndi Lauper all the sudden. Babies and divorce do not sit well with her. Arcade Fire closing the show was cool even if the way the Grammy's did it makes it look like Arcade Fire knew in advance they were going to win. If Eminem had won would Arcade Fire have still performed a second song? Just looked fixed in hindsight. But hey, they had Matt Hoffman out there on the stage so not going to complain to much.
