2010 Was Ronnie Fieg’s Year

Ronnie Fieg’s name has been doing a lot of circulating in the footwear scene this year. The Queens native started out working for David Z as a stock boy at the age of 15 and now he’s a creator/collaborator/buyer of footwear. His collaboration with Asics and his Gel Lyte III design was featured in The Wall Street Journal and since then companies like Sebago, Clarks, Red Wings, New Balance, Saucony, and Adidas have been calling for his services. Enough with the chit-chat let’s looks at some of joints from this year.

Candace Parker & Sheldan Williams’ Klingon Baby

Candace Parker is hands down one of the most beautiful women I’ve ever seen. Sheldan Williams is by far one of the weirder looking people I’ve ever seen. So I thought their baby would be something on the cute side. Don’t get me wrong the girl could grow up and be a supermodel who knows, by judging on how she looks now though, I’m a bit scared. The verdict is still out on this one. I hope for the best.


When your father looks like this….

I would proceed with extreme caution.

LeBron x Twitter x Villain Role

Here’s the thing, anyone that knows Twitter knows that LeBron didn’t retweet that shit. I would’ve respected him more if he said “Yeah, it was me and it was more so directed at Dan Gilbert since he was talking all that shit during the summer. Fuck him, and Karma is a bitch with herpes, and she just found him.” What LeBron failed to realize is that people in this country actually hate him and its not just in Cleveland. He should focus on being Atilla The Hun instead of The Loving King.

For instance, when Kobe was villafied he embraced it and it did wonders for his game. Bryant went into other arenas knowing people hated him and absorbed it, once that happened that’s when Kobe became known as Black Mamba and the greatest closer. With that said, LeBron stop trying to please everyone and being their fucking friend. Make people hate you more by dropping 50 points and talking all the shit you can spew. Its the Kobe effect. Why? Look how Kobe went from most-hated to loved and adored, don’t get me wrong people still hate him like yours truly but you can’t help but to respect his game.

Obama Calls for a New Era of Civility in U.S. Politics

Obama says:

“At a time when our discourse has become so sharply polarized, at a time when we are far too eager to lay the blame for all that ails the world at the feet of those who think differently than we do,” he said, “it’s important for us to pause for a moment and make sure that we are talking with each other in a way that heals, not a way that wounds.”

Its sad when a tragedy like the one in Arizona wakes up the whole nation. I would just like to know how the NRA or anyone else in support of letting crazies have firearms feel about all this. Regardless, this shouldn’t have never went down and now innocent people had to pay.

And The Award For Best Supporting Actor Goes To…

By now most of you that Christian Bale received a nomination for Best Supporting Actor for this year’s Oscars. Bale is exceptional as Dicky Ekland, Micky Ward’s half-brother who happens to be a crackhead. Bale shows dedication to his craft with his rapid weight-loss for this role, which he isn’t a stranger of (The Machinist). He steals the show in every scene by displaying true grit along with a drug addict’s charm. Honestly, its refreshing to see Bale do a role where he isn’t a pretentious-rich-prick, there was a human element that he brought out as the film goes along. If you having seen The Fighter, go see it now! Below is the real Dicky Ekland.

Negro WHY!?!?

Its stupidity like this that constantly gives Hip-Hop a bad name. Outside of that, this is typical coonery. A ice cream tattoo? On your face?! Why do I have a feeling his Mama tried to leave him in a back alley dumpster on Prom Night. Gucci Mane just take your ass back to jail….

Brittany Daniel…What Happened??

Someone please tell her that this new look isn’t working for the show! She looks like she got smacked with a sack of flour, repeatedly. Other than her being a COMPLETE chickenhead on the premier, the show wasn’t that bad. I think they may have busted the proverbial nut on the first episode though.

High School BBall Stars: Where Are They Now?

Once heralded (#1 ranked) high school star Korleone Young out of Hargrave Military Academy was sought after by every NCAA school in the nation, only to skip college and go straight to the NBA. To get to the point, he was drafted in the second-round with the 40th pick by the Pistons. He only played in three games in one season and was waived by the Pistons in 1999. Young was last playing for Israeli club Bnei HaSharon, but left the team before the season started in 2006.

Lenny Cooke was supposed to be LeBron James’ kryptonite, but things obviously didn’t turn out that way. I’ve had the pleasure to watch him play a few times and I even marveled at his talents, he was long, athletic, and had a nice handle. One would think after giving King James the business at the ABCD Camp he should be a first-round lock? Unfortunately, he turned 19 his senior year in high school and was ruled ineligible for using all of his athletic eligibility. What’s one to do after that? Go pro! So he entered his name into the draft and the rest is history, since that’s all he did because not a single team drafted him. After bouncing around from subpar leagues (USBL & NBDL) to playing in the Philippines & China he was most recently found playing in the CBA.

He was once the pride of New Jersey. Gyms got so packed that his games were played in college stadiums. Camden, NJ was home to not only the most violence in the nation, it also housed the best individual basketball talent in the nation. Double Whammy! DaJuan Wagner was the hottest ticket in the Tri-State area in 2000-2001. He was so big that when I was college my teammates wanted tapes of him just to see what the hype was about, mind you he’s a year younger than me. All this attention was warranted when his average was 42.5 points and he broke the state’s all-time scoring record with 3,462 points and let’s not forget he’s the only player in New Jersey to score 100 points in a single game. You can understand the hype.

Once the dust settled, it became clear that his deft scoring would be neutralized when playing against top-flight competition. The Cleveland Cavaliers picked him at 6th overall in 2002 and although averaging 13.4 points his health and injuries seemed to slow him down significantly. By the 2004-05 season Wagner was hospitalized with ulcerative colitis, and was later released. After successful surgery Wagner attempted for a comeback for the 2006 season and was signed by the Golden State Warriors for two years. Two months later he was released. In 2007 he played in Poland for club Prokom Trefl Sopot.

Honestly, Wagner’s story pisses me off because like everyone else we had such high hopes for the kid and things didn’t work which often seems to be the case with superstar high school athletes. There’s a huge list of other players I can think of but I’ll be here all night so maybe I’ll post another one at a later date.

Taz Arnold: You’re Confusing Me

I can’t be the only one that thinks Taz Arnold is a bit over the top. I’m all for fashion but some things need to be walked out to the woods and shot dead. There’s a fine line between fashion-forward and androgynous. Buying a bunch of expensive labels and wildly throwing together “gender-bending” outfits doesn’t mean its fashion.

All of this is seeded from the brainchild Kanye West, which to his credit he’s actually fashionable. Its clear that Kanye is a straight male with fashion sense. Although, I’ve seen some outfits that were just…. You see my point though. Taz Arnold may be a cool guy but those leggings have to go. They will never be a staple in men’s fashion. I’ve seen guys in leggings before and I don’t mean Conan, the difference is that you know where they stand with their sexual preference so its not a big deal.

So either Taz is an egotistical-overly-fashion-hyped-too-cool-for-school type, or he’s gay. Until then I’ll remain confused about his fashion sense and what it says about him.

Butt Enhancers

I remember when most females wanted to be Cindy Crawford thin and all they ate was Kix cereal. With me spending my adolescence in a middle-class town I was predisposed to thin/unshapely white girls. Although, I knew this wasn’t the norm, I felt comfortable since my eyes were seemingly focused on the chest region. So as I got older my focused shifted to the region that has the country by storm – THE BOOTY – and as an ass-grab-hungry teen I felt that nothing else on the female body matter outside the va-jay-jay.

Today, my thoughts are the same when it comes to a woman’s body, but I think some females got it twisted. There’s a significant difference between having a butt, booty, fatty, and a fat ass. I’m not going to break it down since it may hurt some feelings, but here’s a barometer of sorts. If you have wide hips and your thighs rub together then just drop yourself from the equation. Simple.

Back to my gripe with these butt enhancers. Society has this whole thing backwards, they promote healthy living/eating then they want to create the illusion of certain woman to have bigger asses. For the longest women would say things like “is my butt too big?” or “does my ass look too fat in these jeans?” Now they want that look. By all means get the butt that you want but don’t fool guys into thinking you have the goods when you don’t. Once the panties come off then what? Embarrassment ensues.

Females when trying to get that bigger butt please don’t over-indulge when eating because not only will your butt get bigger, everything else will too. Hit the gym and sculpt that thing and everything else will fall into place. The world we live in today can make a person incredibly insecure or extremely narcissistic, and I feel the media plays into that for an agenda I can’t even fathom. Not everyone is Kim Kardashian. I just pray you’re smarter than her.
