The Last Air Bender is a FAIL

I was already apprehensive about this movie as soon as I saw a white boy playing the main lead role.  This post pretty much explains everything I was thinking.  Sad really.  All the "hero" characters are white...and the one bad Fire Bender is played by the only "colored" person...Dev Patel from SlumDog...ugh.  Horrible.

Thanks to my boy Norvin for forwarding this over to me this morning.

Greg's Bday GTG - Botanical Garden and food run!

Yesterday, the group got together to celebrate Greg's bday.  We all went to a botanical garden in PV to walk around and see the plants and cool stuff they have there.




After some walking and looking at flowers...it is TIME TO EAT!!! We headed to the Rolling Hills Plaza area.


Went here for lunch:



Lunch specials are always appreciated.


I had the Beef Kalbi stew....yummy!


Beef was sooo tender....



next stop...dessert!!  A few of us heard about this place and wanted to give it a try!


I picked up 4 cupcakes to bring home....



starting from the top right corner going clockwise.  Peanut Butter cheesecake, Caramel Apple, Red Velvet and Coconut Vanilla.

Then I had a custom ice cream sandwich...with a chocolate chip cookie a snickerdoodle and vanilla bean ice cream.




Good times as always....Happy Birthday Greg!

Kawaii!


A clever plate I saw cruising around.  It is on a Prius and inside was filled with Hello Kitty stuff. 

For all my non Chinese readers the plate literally says I LOVE YOU in Mandarin.  Cute indeed!

Air Jordan INFRARED PACK

On June 19 Nike released the Air Jordan INFRARED PACK that contains the Black/Infrared and the White/Infrared. Two OG colorways of an iconic shoe. Super hyped pair for this year. I have another pair coming in this week...or at least it better come in. I got these from a contact on the forums and I then ordered from Finishline and got another pack. One to rock, one to stock as they say!



Here is a shot of the Black/Infrared




Here are the white/infrared



some detail shots...

What to wear?

These???


Nike Hyperdunk Supreme - LAKERS (Away) colorway

or


These??



Air Jordan retro 1 DMP Pack - Boston Celtics colorway



LOL...anyone who knows me, knows I have little interest in sports. I just watch the important games and even then it is just to keep up with current events and conversation.  Obviously, it helps to live in the city where the current champions are located as we are about to get DEEP into it with Boston.  LA better win the next 2 games and finish this.  But just in case they dont...at least I have the right kicks to rock whatever happens!

Infrared Pack - June 19

Infrared Pack

Man...had to pay a "little" extra to pre-order a pack.  Will be on the hunt Saturday to secure one more.  I need one to rock one the stock.

THE ICEMAN!



Last night was UFC 115 and Liddell got KOed by Rich Franklin.  I am def sad that Chuck lost 5 out of his last 6 fights.  At 40 years old, most agree he is/should retire after this showing last night.

This is an older pic of me and Chuck.  I met him and got to spend a day with him back at FIRST LOOK HOME ENT where we released his solo profile DVD, THE ULTIMATE ICEMAN.  We did some radio and other interviews and ended at the Virgin Megastore at Hollywood and Highland for an appearance and DVD signing.  He is super down to earth and just a very cool guy.  I am NOT a huge MMA fan, I barely keep up but I do like Chuck, we was very cool hanging out and doing all the press we had for him for the DVD.  GOOD LUCK to you in your future ICEMAN!
