Things to wear. Things to watch. Things to obsess over.

I dig the Y-3 sneakers for F/W08.Yes, they are more of the same. But if it ain't broke.... etc.
So far, the new fashion season is a bit dissapointing, I'd say. Here's the first show that really caught my attention: Comme des Garçons spring 09. Lose the hat and it's a perfect outfit.

Everytime it kicks it roars. Kool Kid's newest offering 'The Delivery Man'. Fun fact: The single is released on a label owned by PepsiCo.
Andre 3000 debut line of clothing is called 'Benjamin Bixby' and is inspired by the rugged sportsmanship from the 1930's. I like the big letters on the chest, like a manly version of the Miu Miu leather initials of F/W08.
I bought these yesterday. The new Adidas 'clean' hi-top originals have no stripes on the side and a nearly invisible logo on the sole.
Ooooh, shiny: the Moncler vintage limited edition release.
Which goes nicely with these new Batman DC shoes.
Or, if you're not up for shiny wear:
Battle the cold in style. This is the Hans Madsen F/W 08 collection. Oversized T's, grey, lots of knitted stuff:all you need, really.
I think I'm ditching sneakers and going for some serious footwear this winter. Like these Shapel boots.
Thinking more street? O.K.
My favourite Australian designers, P.A.M., have dropped their A/W 08 collection (good luck finding anything, it sold out in a few day's time...)
Also bang on:
New Kaws A/W08
Supreme jacket A/W08.
And finally, as promised:

We received the new TV on the Radio album about a week ago and I think it's fair to say this track is by far the worst of the whole album. Pretty strange, considering the rest of the album is stuffed with everything you were hoping tjis album would be. Opener 'Halfway Home' is up there with 'Wolf Like Me' and tracks like 'Love Dog' have been haunting me ever since I first heard it. So why this as a single? Still, the video is quite fun. Watch it, forget the track, buy the album. Howl hallelujah. Feel better about the state of your life and where it is going.
