News for August 2014

Peanuts x A Bathing Ape

My vinyl toy collecting days are long gone, but once in a while something will show up on my news feed that will reignite that crazy furnace inside of me. A Bathing Ape and Peanuts are joining forces to produce a number of goods for the upcoming Fall/Winter collection, with one of them being this really cool set with Snoopy and Woodstock. My only concern? If it stays true to how BAPE usually prices their products, then this thing will not be cheap.

See the rest of the collection over at Hypebeast.

Was reading through some old posts back in 2008…

…and I didn't realized how much I missed until now. Remember that place? Kanye would post random crap on his blog from sites like Selectism, Hypebeast, Yanko Design… places that I still go to today. The man basically inspired me to blog the way I did back then. It's kind of a shame that we don't see that part of Kanye much anymore.

Random thoughts at 1 AM

I don’t really remember the last time I slept on my own bed lately. I’ve been hitting the road these past couple of weekends, sleeping on hotel beds, stiff mattresses in university dorms and on the floor of a tent, with nothing but sand and rock underneath. I was determined to make this summer a good one, maybe being away from home a lot is starting to wear me down a bit. I’ve got another trip to Victoria this weekend, if I can get through that one then I’ll slow it down. In between my out of town excursions, maybe the other reason is because it’s so damn hot these days, the only refuge I can get from the heat is turning the fan on and sleeping on the couch in the basement. With the television on, it sings me to sleep. Maybe the other reason why I can’t stand my own bed is because of this restlessness that seems to show up when the sun goes down. I don’t know why, but sleeping in my own bed while I’m like this doesn’t help me. Maybe the television is key. Instead of thinking about things, I let the television tell me everything’s going to be OK, that I will soon find sleep tonight. Yeah. Maybe that’s it. It won’t all go away, but at least I can try and take it one night at a time.

Never really enjoyed the idea – and the act – of falling for someone. Tonight reminded me why. Tried to clear my mind by taking a long drive out to nowhere in particular. Sort of worked. But not really. I’ll try to sleep it off tonight, but that’s only if I manage to fall asleep. I guess in the end, the loneliness that comes with being the only one awake at this hour exacerbates the problem.
