Stella Artois – Crying Jean

I can’t say enough positive things about Nike.  It’s one of my favorite brands and you may already know, I am extremely loyal to the brands that I like.   And today while going thru a potential company I may be working for, I came across another Nike commercial that I just thought was phenomenal….

At the memorial service for Dan Cho this past Friday, I found out just how talent he really was and how much impact he had on the people around him. | continue reading |

That’s right folks, I wanted to see LeBron James in a Knicks jersey.   | continue reading |

Just watched Lindsey Vonn win her gold medal.  John said it was the most entertaining event on the Olympics so far.  That’s because close to 50% of the ladies totally fell on their faces before reaching the finish line.  Sad but true.  However, can we take a moment to acknowledge how gorgeous this woman is?  She slightly looks like a younger, curvier, and definitely more athletic version of Sharon Stone.   Really really beautiful!

John and I have been watching a lot of Olympics.  But since we don’t want to be blind sided by spoilers on the web and on the news, we’ve been watching most of it live.  This means, no skipping thru the commercials like we usually do.  But time to time, that’s not such a bad thing.  Serendipitously I came across this commercial that wove images which provoked raw human emotions together with artistic execution that was flawless.  Nike… did it again!

Restoration Hardware is one of my favorite store in the world.  I am actually sitting in a room where the wall was painted with “silver sage” from RH.  While browsing the site, I saw this “everlast desktop speed bag” and chuckled a little to myself.  Wondered what my co-workers would think if I had this on my desk.  Then realized that the item was completely sold-out.  And I did not find that surprising….

Google’s TV ad.  I don’t know if there are any other Google TV ads but this was so sweet and so poignant.  Clearly this was one of my favorite ads of the nite.

Dodge Charger commercial called “A Man’s Last Stand.”   Michael C Hall’s voice brought the ad to a whole new level IMO.

Okay, so I am a HUGE fan of Run’s House.  Couple of weeks ago I found out his address and was very tempted to go stalk his house until they let me in and make me part of their family.  One of my dearest buddies, Gian, suggested that it was a fantastic idea.  So I knew nothing good could come out of it.

Anywho, so this Diggy character, who is probably 13 years old has a blog that I can’t stop reading.  The more I read and the more I see the stuff that he’s posting on his blog, I am really beginning to question whether he’s

  1. actually 13 because the sense of style this kid has is freaking out of this world
  2. writing all this stuff because he seems to have such wide range of interest (fashion, music, sports,  and even architecture)
  3. where he finds the time and the energy to blog so much

Regardless, I love the fact that he has very similar style/taste as me and I totally apprecitate his point of view.

i’m a huuuuge jets fan. i love the jets. even though they always manage to disappoint me every year. yesterday was the first day of the nfl draft. the jets made some big moves. long story short, they traded their 17th pick and some other picks and players for the 5th overall pick. and guess who we got …

mark sanchez. WHOOO!!!

 

ok, to be honest, i have no idea if he’s great or what. i know he played for usc which is always a really good college football team. let’s hope this could help the jets …

i have my fingers crossed ..

…so cool in these old school sneakers.  PF Flyers – Bob Cousy All American Lo

i love march. not because it’s st. patrick’s month (day, whatev). but because of march madness. if you don’t know what that is, it’s basically a college basketball single elimination tournament. the best 64 teams compete for the championship. and it’s not necessarily the best team that wins, but the best team that day/night. of all sports, it’s probably one of my favorite things to watch (probably aside from football). it’s always exciting; a lot of upsets, cinderella stories, buzzer beaters, etc. etc. etc. 

but i slacked this year. too busy to keep up with watching all these games. but i entered my work’s bracket pool anyway. clearly, i have no idea who 75% of the teams are. at that point, it’s all gut instinct. sometimes i just like the name of the team or they play in a state that i recall a story or movie from or i feel like they have heart (although i have no idea who they are). just anything. now the best part is picking the upsets. picking the team that nobody expects to win. it’s pure bragging rights (and more points). now majority of the time, i’m wrong. but it’s those 2 or 3 i pick correctly that give me such satisfaction. 

so i entered and guesssss whoooo wonnnnnn. no, not that guy. ok ok. who has two thumbs and won the 2009 march madness pool? ahh ahh? i’ll give you a hint. i have two thumbs. =) congrats to my team, the tar heels*.

 

* yeah, i didn’t go to unc. but when you go to a school with no sports aka nyu and live in an area where college ball sucks aka seton hall, st. john, rutgers, etc., you’re forced to pick a team you remember liking for their baby blue uniform when you were 10.

so apparently tonight korea and japan will face off in the world baseball classic championships. holy moly.

team japan

team korea

team japan

team japan

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

1. japan vs. korea. a long history of wars, ill will, and asian pride’s on the line (i might have over exaggerated that statement andor made it completely up. my history knowledge is very limited to what people tell me, what i remember from that, and just complete fabrications)

2. they actually have a world baseball classic championships, who knew?    … ok i did, sort of. but i don’t care enough for baseball to acknowledge it even though i may have seen it while surfing the channel or seen my dad watch it.

3. i’m korean. so you know who i’m rooting for …

4. …nobody. i just don’t really like baseball at all.

5. no but seriously, i’ll probably be rooting for korea. obviously. and drinking mad korean beer. eff that sapporo! OB, what!

 

 

********UPDATE**********

korea lost. i went to my friend’s korean bar restaurant. and let me tell you. it was ..INSANE. people were chanting names as if the players could actually hear them. definitely a good game even though i don’t like baseball. but do you want to know who the REAL winner was?

the bar. win or lose, people were going to be definitely dranking.
