Anyone looking for some laughs, whether by laughing at jokes by some really talented comedians, or just laughing at the joke that is some really bad comedians, hit up Yuk Yuk's. Also, congrats to Boston's Tom Dustin for winning this thing. 25K in the bank...I'd like my cut in 5 days...I have paypal!

They feature suede laces, stylized leather accents, and the CP trademarked vulcanized sole, and number stamp. Also available in a low top, but I much prefer the way these look.

K’naan’s “Wavin’ Flag” is one of the standout tracks from his Troubadour album and has becomesomething of a phenomenon thanks to its timely message of strength and solidarity.

Hot Tub Time Machine [REVIEW]

Last night I attended a screening of one of the best films ever shit Casablanca! Alright, not quite but it was by far one of the most hilarious pieces of film I have ever had the joy of watching. Premise? John, Rob, Craig, and Clark are friends who travel back to the 80's via a hot tub time machine and hilarity ensues (i.e. brainstorming million dollar ideas that they steal from the future like combining viagra and twitter...aka twitagra). It is a twisted homage to 80's teen films, like those that made the John Cusask, and Chevy Chase legends, but combines the crude brand comedy Craig Robinson, and Rod Corddry are known for. Not sold? Take a look at the red band trailer here.

In theatres March 26th.

Michael Leon for Bodega [ART]

I really like this. I actually can't seem to find the official title of this Michael Leon piece (I have aptly titled it Pisa Lean), so if someone knows, please fill me in. Nevertheless, this, along with an array of other works, is part of the Bodega collection which is curated under the premise of being eco-friendly, and contemporary done on a larger scale that most releases. A great way to give new and established artists a platform to share their work with the world.
