I have had my Chrome messenger bag for almost 4 years. I€™ve used it exclusively for everything and anything. It€™s been my bag for road trips, class, spending the night, or just to carry whatever I can imagine. It€™s very durable and water proof which is a great feature when carrying things like books, laptops, etc. in the rain. When I first bought it, it was about $120 but I€™ve definitely gotten my moneys worth and then some. Now, the Chrome bags are a little more expensive but I€™d definitely purchase another if this one ever crapped out, which I don€™t see happening any time soon, this thing has gone through hell and is still in one piece.
One eye-catching feature is the signature belt buckle strap:
I€™m writing this post though to touch upon Chrome€™s giving nature. In March, Chrome held a one day event where if you sent in an old pair of sneakers, they would send you a brand new pair of their current line-up of sneakers. The event was called €œTurds For Gold!€ and was incredibly cool of Chrome to do. They donated over 5,000 pairs of shoes to two charities, one based in San Francisco (Chrome€™s home-town) and another in Haiti. My new Chrome sneakers arrived a week or two ago. I haven€™t used them much yet but with summer weather approaching, I€™ll definitely be rocking these soon.

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.
