Sneaker of the year contender 🌹💧

Post image 1

There's been a ton of heat dropping this year, and a lot still left.
But the moment I unboxed these Action Bronson x New Balance 1906 'Rosewater' I knew they'd be on my top 10 list for the year — maybe even THE top (pending some wear testing).
Fun fact: Action has mentioned that this particular colorway was inspired by vintage women's sneakers that he always wanted but couldn't wear due to sizing.

Noah x Timex Sun and Moon Watch ⌚

I usually associate Timex with ordinary, toned-down timepieces but this collab they dropped with Noah earlier this week had me doing a double-take.
Super elegant with the gold casing and crocodile-pattern leather strap, and the coolest part to me is that Sun/Moon dial feature, which indicates AM and PM.
No exact stock numbers were released but the rumor is only around 100 watches were produced. They retailed for $198, sold out in the blink of an eye, and are now fetching almost 4-5x.

New Pickup: New Balance 993 x Joe Freshgoods 🍃

Caught a shock restock of a pair of clean and simple New Balance 993s from a pack that designer Joe Freshgoods released with the brand in 2022. He's one of a handful of creatives credited with bringing renewed attention and excitement back to New Balance in the last few years – these pairs went like wildfire when they released.
Back during the original 2022 drop I added the pink pair to my collection, which is one of my all-time favorite New Balances. With this new pickup they're now sitting alongside the green pair. Still need the blue to complete the set (see second picture), but I'm pretty happy with these two for now.

A very 'hot' setlist 🌶️

It's February 2016 — Super Bowl 50 weekend in SF. I find out that one of my all-time favorite bands, Red Hot Chili Peppers, are performing at a private show somewhere in the city.
Apparently it's Mark Cuban's event, and unfortunately I don't know Mark, so I have to find another way in.

I hustle nonstop and find a connect. Fast forward to the night of the show, I’m front row singing my lungs out and it’s magic. At the end of the show, I get the setlist.

Ever since then I've been hooked on collecting setlists from concerts I attend. But this one will always have a special place, tied to the surreal core memory of that show.

"Got Milk?" Ad Collectors 🥛

Post image 1

This might sound crazy, but I have fond memories of collecting "Got Milk" ads in the mid to late 90s.
Super curious if anyone else remembers this era...
My brothers and I would scour magazines for them, carefully removing the ads and storing them in binders with full-page sleeves. There was even some vague degree of rarity to them — we'd chase after certain ones that didn't pop up as often (Phantom, Hansons, Rugrats, are a few that I remember being stoked to finally find).
We had a similar thing going with Bacardi and Absolut ads, but Got Milk was the ultimate.
