NIKE 6.0 AND ALKALINE TRIO SHOE COLLABORATION

Beaverton OR. (June 9th, 2008)- Nike 6.0 and punk stalwarts, Alkaline Trio, joined forces to translate the energy of action sports and punk rock into a pair of collaborative kicks. The Heart and Sole Air Zoom Cush and a limited run of messenger bags will be released June 27th exclusively at Jacks Retail Shop in Huntington Beach. Alkaline Trio recently kicked off their summer tour, supporting their new album Agony and Irony and the release of the shoe. The Heart and Sole Air Zoom Cush will be available at select retailers nationwide on July 11th.

“The collaboration between Nike 6.0 and Alkaline Trio was a natural fit. Punk rock’s independent spirit is a common thread with action sports, and the band member’s live the lifestyle we support.” said Tim Reede, Nike 6.0 Product Line Manager. “We were able to create unique materials and details that reflect the band’s history, resulting in a collaboration that truly tells a story.”

“We chose red and black as the main colors to reflect our Chicago roots and pay homage to the Bulls. We are huge fans,” said Matt Skiba of Alkaline Trio. “I’m also into sneakers, so seeing the swoosh and our logo on one product is unbelievable. The shoe looks amazing and provides some insight into who we are.”

Custom design elements include reflective details and bike-tread inspired graphics, correlating to the band’s formative years in Chicago where the members met while working as bike messengers. Distressed materials translate the punk ethos, and the Alkaline Trio logo is featured on the heel cup. The Heart and Sole Cush is constructed of all synthetics, supporting select band members who are vegetarian.

The Air Zoom Cush, new to the Nike 6.0 line, is a low profile action-sports shoe, built for high performance and increased responsiveness. The Cush features a one-piece toe vamp and V-oriented grooves in the sole to increase flex. For more information, and video content visit www.nike6.com.

As the Heart and Sole Air Zoom Cush drops, the Alkaline Trio will be in the midst of a Summer headlining tour in support of their highly anticipated new album Agony & Irony, in stores July 1st. The national tour kicked off May 30th in Vancouver, sweeping major markets across the country and ends in Kansas on August 3rd.

I like the box better than the shoe!

I’m still obsessed with The Office.

I found this video on OfficeTally.com. Jenna and Angela crack me up. Here they are talking about Angela’s baby shower and bears dressed as bunnies. Enjoy. 

There is a NEW EPISODE of The Office tonight!!! I hope Toby doesn’t really move to Costa Rica… he’s a good character! Also, Kelly needs to be on more often! (ok, I’m done with the exclamation points… for now)

On MySpace I’m friends with Pam/Jenna and Angela from The Office. It’s funny how Jenna blogs from the Office set: “I’m on set in the deep background of a scene. Dwight, Andy and Angela are in the kitchen and I’m at my desk pretending to work. I was sitting here, answering emails and reading gossip sites and I thought, “Hey, why not blog a bit!” So, here I am. Not too different from when I was a real receptionist. Funny how life works sometimes huh?”

She mentioned that since Angela is pregnant in real life and not on the show they “have been hiding her belly with files, purses, copy machines and even people. Yesterday we did a scene and it was my job to block her belly. So cute!” It’s fun to notice how they are hiding her belly while watching the show.

Angela posted this cute picture on her MySpace page of her and Rainn Wilson (Dwight).

“24” star Kiefer Sutherland was busted on suspicion of DUI in West Hollywood last night, after allegedly blowing more than twice the legal limit of .08. This is the actor’s second DUI in the past five years — he was arrested in 2004. By California law, if he’s convicted, he must serve a mandatory minimum of five days in jail. Read the story here.

DUI is one thing I can’t stand. BE RESPONSIBLE. You could kill someone!

He definitely improved the song!


The original Soulja Boy Tell Em – Crank That MUSIC VIDEO:

First she and her husband split, now this.

On her blog, Jenna Fischer (aka Pam Beesly) acknowledged that her Emmy dress was “kind of a risk.” She continued to say, “You may hate it. Or, it might be awesome. I’m honestly not sure. But I love it. It’s not like anything I’ve ever worn before. I wanted to break out a little.” Well, guess who just landed on the “Worst Dressed” list…

I think it would have been ok if it didn’t have that stupid bow on it!

Don’t worry Jenna, your Office co-worker (Mindy Kaling, aka Kelly Kapoor) landed on the list with you!

This dress is bananas b-a-n-a-n-a-s. This dress is bananas.

Almost every day someone comes to my blog after searching for “Jeremy Roloff + shirtless” (because of this story) so I thought I’d give the people what they want.

These pics and more are on his myspace page.

From a bulletin posted on myspace by the Descendents

Our bass player Karl suffered a minor heart attack on August 11th. Fortunately, it was minor and there was no permanent damage, so he’s going to be ok.

However, due to lack of medical insurance, he’s accumulated enough medical bills to give anyone a coronary. A bunch of Karl’s friends have organized a myspace page/paypal thing for donations to help him with his medical expenses. There will also be other benefit shows, and so forth to help raise money. This isn’t being directly administrated by the band, but obviously we want to help Karl in any way possible. So, if it’s in your means and in your heart to help him out, please do so.
