Samberg vs. McEnroe, Conners, Borg & More

Samberg vs. McEnroe, Conners, Borg & More:

On the cusp of this year’s US Open, The New York Times Magazine asked Walter Iooss Jr. (legendary sports photographer) and comedian Andy Samberg to look back at several iconic men’s tennis rivalries. Andre Agassi vs. Pete Sampras, John McEnroe vs. Bjorn Borg, and Jimmy Conners vs. McEnroe are all done comedic justice. Not only was the level of play to be admired, the on court style was too (ignore Agassi for all intents and purposes). The New York Times meticulously dug into the archives of Nike, Fila, and Tacchini for the authentic tennis whites. The result fiercely rivals the best Will Ferrell sports comedies—save Semi-Pro, that was just bad. The piéce de résistance? Pistol Pete’s carpet of a chest.

Game, set, match.

NYC Clocktower Apartment Seems Pretty Okay

NYC Clocktower Apartment Seems Pretty Okay: "



Real estate hype aside, GHK Properties is calling this 'Dumbo's Most Spectacular Building' and it's hard to disagree when you see the triplex that crowns it. We couldn't help but notice the striking similarity to the Bruce Wayne-funded Gotham Clocktower from the DC comic book, Birds of Prey, and with 360-degree views of Gotham and the possibility of setting up a covert crime-fighting operation from this base, it almost seems like a steal.



This almost offensively splendid 7,000-square-foot penthouse is located right inside the building's clock tower, provides 360-degree views, and gives you the freedom to sabotage your neighbors' scheduling by changing the clock times to whatever you damn well please. I mean if you're going to spend $23.5 million on an apartment, it may as well come with the privilege of resetting New York City's time zone to your individual liking.

Witness This.

Blog overload! I'm glad to be a part of this new blog project a few creative heads along with myself put together. We're starting to gather a bit of a fan base with unique imagery and music (some FREE!!!). Check it out at Witness This New Years Eve Party details to follow. Shit's gonna get weird!

Wall Candy.

I've started to invest in new pieces of art since design has become such a big part of my life. The industry has done so much for me so it's only right to give back and support your local artists. Here's a few from my collection...This is a great piece by Ian Ross of San Francisco. It means a lot to me as it was from a live art show in SF and was painted on my birthday while I was in attendance. One of my best friends picked it up for me to my surprise and was one of the kindest gestures I've ever received. Much love Jamal. Ur next.

I saw this piece at my friend Tocayo's art show down in San Diego. The artist is EXIST 1981. Loved the Sound Of Music print collage with his other work.
This is my most recent pickup that I'm incredibley stoked on. This is a signed Shepard Fairey print entitled "The Presidential Seal." For all you who don't know Fairey was the artist behind the Obama "HOPE" art and is soon to be apart of the biggest lawsuit the art world has ever seen. No doubt one of the most iconic street artists of our time. I picked this beast up at a great charity art auction/xmas party a coworker of mine put on to support a friend of his that has ALS. It makes me happy to know that the proceeds of the event went to that kind of support.
