Soccer's Lost Boys

I can't even put into words the sadness of this documentary but nonetheless, it's a must watch. Current TV continues to put out great work and a big shout out to my buddy Jeff for producing this one.

Zidane : A Twenty-First Century Portrait

For those who need a little more soccer, or should I say football, in their lives, head on down to The Hammer on July 6 to view this amazing sports documentary. The premise is simple : 17 cameras follow around one of the greatest footballers of all time during a spanish league match. The game itself isn't very important but that's what makes this film so special. Zidane did extraordinary things every game and this film serves as a microscope of sorts to highlight each and every move. It really is like watching poetry in motion. More info HERE.

Brook Farm General Store

If I lived in Manhattan I would be sure to be at this store every weekend as they seem to have everything, from clothes to house stuff, old and new combined, this store's website is among my daily go-to's in the world of the internet.
One thing that recently caught my eye were a plain pair of white sneakers by a French company called Bensimon. The price seems reasonable as well.

Solitary Gun

My buddy Tyler continues to put out stellar work. Another example is with his latest video with Rogue Wave's new video for the single "Solitary Gun."

Sofia Coppola's "Somewhere"

I am beyond excited to see this film. We all know that if the movie sucks, the music will at leas be good. But, something's telling me that this is going to be a special one. Welcome back Stephen Dorff.
Check out the trailer below. I really like the Strokes piano version of "You Only Live Once," on there as well.

The Thirsty Crow

I recently stepped foot in The Thirsty Crow and was blown away by the drinks, decor, and overall vibe of this new Silverlake spot. Recently opened in the old Stinker's location, this is the latest venture from the people responsible for Bigfoot Lodge and Little Cave. The premise behind this new joint is on bourbons and "whiskey shots," which is a fresh breath of air.

the fable of Aesop
win and you get a free shot
industrial lighting throughout the spot (with a pulley system) is a nice touch
