Iconic Specs

April 10, 2010

I've posted an article already about my retro style eyeglasses but I would like to touch upon other iconic specs that everyone's quite familiar with. Pretty much everyone has seen Ray-Ban sunglasses, they are worn by countless amount of people, on the street, in movies, tv, ads, and so on. I've had my Wayfarers for a few years now but about 2-3 years ago it seemed EVERYONE hopped onto the Wayfarer bandwagon, which isn't bad per se, but I tend to shy away from the choices of the masses. So about two years ago I picked up what would be my sunglasses of choice for quite some time.


The Clubmasters are positioned in front of the Wayfarers, and have the gold accents. I love these browline glasses. While still being Ray-Ban's and holding a firm grasp on the past, it invokes that old school cool while separating them from the sea of Wayfarer wearers out there. Nothing wrong with the Wayfarers at all, still very cool and stylish, just over saturated in my mind. If you like 'em, by all means rock 'em. BUT maybe instead of going with those, look around and find something a little more unique. Mix it up.Tons of cool sunglasses out there and with summer time quickly approaching, I'd love to see some wild specs on people. Just a thought.

The Beginning: Making Episode 1
The Beginning: Making Episode 1

January 09, 2016

It's not a secret that Star Wars Episode 1 is not only a horrible Star Wars movie, it's just a horrible movie in general. Sitting through it is a task, it's so dense and filled with boring political plot points, bad acting and computer graphics. It feels more like an ILM portfolio showcasing CG techniques rather than a film.

I can remember as a kid watching it for the first time and leaving the theater confused. I thought maybe I wasn't watching as careful as I should have been? I dunno what it was but I felt like I missed something because, its Star Wars, isn't it supposed to be good? I thought, "Did I just black out for most of that movie? Was I daydreaming the whole time?" I begged my parents to take me again, so I could see what I surely missed but they wouldn't take me. I had to wait for it to come out on video when I finally realized that it wasn't just me, this shit really does just suck.
