Welcome To The Greatest City

Let’s see if this trade will pan out. With depleted a roster, can the Knicks salvage the rest of the season and gain better playoff positioning? Maybe. The arena seats will be filled but I don’t see much improvement from the Knicks at this juncture. We still have to see what they can do during free agency this summer and let’s hope they can land Chris Paul or Deron Williams in 2012, but I still think with the lingering CBA negotiations around the corner, the prospect of getting a high-profile free agent may be somewhat bleak. I’m gonna miss Felton though. I’d rather they kept him around.

Cardboard USB Drives

Created by Article Lebedev in Russia/USSR/Soviet Union, whatever. Cool idea but it seems like if they got wet it would be a wrap. I do like that you can write on them for labeling purposes. More pics under the cut.

Religious Extremists vs. Hacktivists

I just felt like posted this since I found this quite amusing. Both parties come out losers in this case, but I will admit that the Westboro Baptist Church protesters are in their own fucking universe. Its extremists like this that make me proud that I don’t have to live anywhere near that nonsense.

The online hacktivist collective Anonymous first came into being to protest the Church of Scientology in 2008. After rising to prominence with recent pro-Wikileaks attacks against Mastercard, Visa and Paypal, the group is returning to its church-bashing roots. Anonymous’ next target appears to be the hate-spewing Westboro Baptist Church. They may have met their match.

This Is A Reason Not To Wear Leggings

Here’s actress Helen Flanagan sporting some snug brown leggings in Manchester yesterday. My thing with leggings is that, if you don’t have the thighs, hips, or butt to fill those out in a sexy/flattering manner then you should be dragged to a back alley and bludgeoned to death. Leggings were not made for gluteus minimus. Period! If you are going to wear these them at least wear a shirt, sweater, or dress that covers your ass, that’s the only exception. This is how the world sees you in these leggings, but you still think you’re looking sexy and filling them out. You’re not, so stop it.

I Knew It!

I’m not really into posting crap about movie stars and celebrity gossip since its mind-numbing, but this just confirmed my beliefs. John Travolta has a damn wig! These pictures were taken while he was on vacation with his “family” in Hawai’i, and I only put family in quotes because there’s speculation that he’s gay. *Shrugs* I’ve seen one picture a few months back that convinced me but know I’m glad a wasn’t still under the influence of whatever earthy substance I consumed at the time. So now I can go back to living my Charlie Sheen-like lifestyle, getting drunk, doing drugs, smacking pornstars and completely denying that I have a problem, which I don’t.

Video: Fashion Designers Take On Film

In this month’s W*144, we talk about how fashion designers are increasingly making small films to sell the fantasy of fashion. From Karl Lagerfeld’s story about a jealous lover, to the Brothers Quay’s darkly whimsical animations for Wonderwood by Comme des Garçons, we look at fashion films that have made their mark.

Carmelo x Amar’e x D’Antoni | Will It Work?

All of New York wants this trade to happen, including me. The Knicks becoming relevant is the best thing for the NBA and this season has proven that. Tickets sales are through the roof, fans have something to feel proud of, the city is buzzing, celebrities and the who’s who of everything are coming to the Garden, its a beautiful thing right now.

Things seem to be headed in the right direction for the Knicks, but can Melo and Amar’e coexist in the D’Antoni system? Both players need the ball almost every trip. Some people would say that Amar’e played with Nash who was a star, let’s not forget that the point guard/big man duo is something that’s cherished. Teams want that, they aspire to have such a great combo. I do understand that Billups is included in the deal, which I don’t think will work in D’Antoni’s fast-break offense. Unless you’re Steve Nash or have a young point guard i.e. Raymond Felton, that offense will struggle. Billups isn’t exactly you’re high speed guard that’ll start a fast break by himself. Felton is or was perfect for that style of play. He’s having a career year under this system and you want to give that away to have a much slower and on-the-decline Billups?

Let’s say they do make the trade and get Melo, then what? The Knicks will have to fill huge holes in the lineup and they won’t have the cap space to acquire that great of talent. The role players they currently have are perfect, but Melo is being impatient and wants things done now. If he was smart he’d just play the year out and sign with NY and come to a robust roster. That’s wishful thinking though. Back to Melo and D’Antoni’s system, the problem with him is that he holds the ball to long and that breaks down the flow of the offense. Its bad enough you have Amar’e demanding the ball, but now you’ll have Melo as well. This is only going to cripple a great offensive attack.

Essentially, the Knicks are giving away their whole offensive system for two players that’ll only make the team slower and more vulnerable on defense. If they can work out a deal to keep Felton and let Denver keep Billups then I feel this trade could work and not interrupt the flow of the offense and still provide decent defense from the guard position. Hopefully, this whole mess can be cleared up and if the Knicks were smart they would keep Isiah Thomas far, far away from MSG. Thomas brings nothing but failure anywhere he goes. Knicks fans should have a protest, threaten his family’s lives, and hire Anucha Browne Sanders back to keep Isiah Thomas out office and away from the organization at all capacities. Viva la Revolución!
