The time has come my friends. The 2010 World Cup will kickoff at roughly 10am today and to be perfectly real with ya’ll…this guy is geeked!

Just wanted to leave you with a nice TV spot before I begin my summer hiatus (not really, but yea) which you probably have seen, but most of you probably haven’t. So flip on your telly and watch the entire world go insane for a month or two!! Oh yea, before I forget, get up in the bracket league over at Code 2 Ave!!!

Jugrnaut Makes Staying Fly Look Easy

Jugrnaut LogoAHHHH Finally got my fitted!!  Apparently I wasn’t quick enough last time around and missed there last shipment.  Unfortunately, I’ll probably never get my hands on my lost love.  That’s why I made a promise to myself to be first in line for their Fall line of New Era Fitted’s.  Thanks to Manny for the lightning fast shipping, my Jay Bird is keeping me warm right now and will for many nights to come.

If any of you aren’t familiar with Jugrnaut yet, I suggest you check out this interview linked over from Code 2 Avenue.  It was a couple years ago that I first heard about Jugrnaut and their downtown Chicago boutique, and lately it seems that they’re just getting fresher and fresher.  Next on the agenda is too get some artwork hanging up in there.  I’ll see you guys Friday, save a 7 1/2 Gambit for me.

The UAC + Code 2 Avenue Takeover (phase I)

IMG_4715AHHH FINALLY!!  Sorry about the week-long hiatus.  I’ve been hard at work the past two weeks gettin’ fresh to death on an exlusive skateboard for my buddy over at Code 2 Avenue.  If ya’ll haven’t followed my past links to the Duecer’s, it’s about time you did.  Their posts always leave me laughing my ass off.

This latest piece is a skateboard for my buddy Sean and his fellow core group of guys that also run Code 2.  Before I started this one I knew I wanted to do something special.  I actually videotaped myself laying everything out and painting it and then sped it up to 2000%.  I still had to edit a few parts out to get it down to the length of one song, which by the way is titled Hayling by FC Kahuna.  You may remember it from the Paul Rodriguez trailer a few posts back.

Check out the video and let me know what you think.  Yea, the quality is pretty shotty, but I don’t think it turned out too bad for my first attempt.

My boy Sean Blair, of Royals Review, and his team of fellow internet kings have put together a little something I like to call a “collablog” (collaboration + blog = collablog… oh c’mon, you know it makes sense) titled Code 2 Avenue.  I’m always tuning into what these guys post and am looking forward to the absolute hilariousness to continue.  Here’s a nice Gatorade commercial… maybe more like a short film… straight from Code 2, check it out!

Before you view it, be aware that this baby’s close to 10 minutes long.  It’s part of Gatorade‘s viral “What’s G?” campaign.  Definitely have to give them props on the nice spoof of Monty Python and the Holy Grail, and if you haven’t seen that movie yet… stop reading right now and go rent it.  I’m dead serious.

Cast:

Kevin Garnett – King Garnett the Glorious

Derek Jeter – Sir Jeter the Gifted

Jimmie Johnson – Sir Jimmie the Other Gifted

Usain Bolt – Sir Bolt the Gutsy

Usain Bolt’s Head – Sir Bolt’s Pet: Ego

Misty May / Kerri Walsh – Misti & Kerri the Two Headed, Three Legged Knight

Alicia Sacramone – Alicia the Girl who made horse trotting noises

Kareem Abdul-Jabbar – The Legend: Captain (Goat-Man)

JabbaWockeeZ – Bridge Guardians

Michael Jordan – Voice of G (Poodle)

Once more, a big thanks to the fellas over at Code 2 Avenue!
