So my brother moved to France today…

And while it’s unbelieavbly rad for him it kinda sucks for me. I will shower him with a brief paragraph of praise; comfortable knowing he’s not nearly enough of a pretentious wanker to care about my blog and hence will not read this.

The next time I see him will be for Christmas in Paris/Annecy so for the next six months I am essentially void of a brother, role model and good mate. With whom will I go on Bob-funded Country Road sessions with now (apply below)? With whom will I reminisce over classic childhood movies, with whom will I scrimmage and with whom will I share clothes, music and EST pizza?

Actually now that I think about it I do most of those things with Aj, Damir, Brad, Dan, Willow, Dos and Bear anyway. Still, the gap he leaves behind cannot be filled. I will take a sliver of comfort in the fact that I will be invading and occupying his room in the coming months, basking in the vast superiority of his television and sound-system though… That’s a win for all involved.

Peace out and enjoy the 34 hours in transit you flight-mule!

Heat Check

“The world is a better place when the Heat are losing.” Fuck yeah it is D.Wade, and for multiple reasons.

  1. Despite how much I love you and LeBron, the rest of your team are fucking useless pricks. I fucking hate Bosh with a passion.
  2. If the Bulls win, their fairytale season continues and EVERY neutral continues to ride the D.Rose bandwagon into the finals. Leaving me to back the Mavs (as I’ve done all playoffs cos my Warriors are shit) with no-one else but the true Mavs fans.
  3. Everybody hates you (not for the reasons I dislike you) meaning everyone is backing the Mavs. (Yep I’m basically just re-wording point 2, which is basically the only reason I wrote this post).


So, in short; Fuck you Miami Heat for upsetting me and the balance of the universe. Your ass-holery is not appreciated under my roof. Come on you Mavs, I guess…

Mavs FTW?

There is nothing quite as satisfying as coming to a conclusion.. Well, actually the satisfaction of what happened in my last post is pretty close but still, today I came to a realisation I was not at all prepared for.

I’m backing the Mavs for the title!

I don’t just mean I think they’re going to win it either. I mean I want them to win it… Yep, even over the youthful Thunder who have captured the hearts of (predominantly new but…) fans world-wide, the big-two down in South Beach and even the top-ranked, MVP boasting Bulls who are seriously tough to back against.

This has all stemmed from a place of contempt too. Until this season (I got Dirk and Chandler in fantasy) I hated the Mavs. When they swept the ass holes down in L.A (sorry Kobe; you are a god) I frothed but it wasn’t until today that I realise how much I was backing them. Watching Dirk turn in the most scintillating performance of the playoffs so far was just…arousing.

We’re rowdy, loud and proud. This is a Mavericks crowd!


Oh Dirk, you are such a delicious seven-foot German beast of a man!

It’s a fickle world we live in where one minute it’s all about wearing three quarter ripped-knee denims and the next there is nothing but tight black floating around the streets. Still, some looks will never die and one of them is the cap (flat-brim for sure). It has seen somewhat of a resurgence in popularity these past few years so if you aren’t already throwin some cotton on your head it’s probably about time you started.

My new Timberwolves snap-back. Goes almost as well as a K. Love double-double…

Melodramatic Mixtape

In lieu of the Knicks trading for ‘Melo to finally end months of speculation I’m throwin’ together my, what was at one point monthly, mixtape. I think it’s become more of an ‘unspecified period of time’ mix these days, so what better reason than seeing Carmelo in the blue and orange of NY is there?

IX. Cut Copy – Alisa

IIX. Parades – Hunters

VII. The Naked & Famous – Girls Like You

VI. Mogwai – George Square Thatcher Death Party

V. The National – Conversation 16

IV. Warpaint – Shadows

IIV. Cut Copy – Pharaohs & Pyramids

II. Arcade Fire – Sprawl II (Mountains Beyond Mountains)

Note 1: How sweet is the Photoshop job on the jersey above. Choice!

Note 2: I am aware that they are not the correct roman numerals. The symmetry just seemed comforting and right though…
