Designed By Me, For Me: The Mean Green 574s from New Balance

I was recently invited to attend New Balance’s ‘Design It. Share It. Wear It.’ Event celebrating the new 574 customization kiosk at the New Balance Experience Store on Fifth Avenue.

The event was well attended by editors, bloggers and New Balance fanatics, including myself. Draft beer from Sixpoint Brewery was poured all evening alongside hotdogs and hamburgers from Bark.

I had one of each from Bark… And both were really good! #noshame #barkhotdogs

 

In addition to great gift bags, custom shirts with Five Seven Four and Made In The USA (which reminded me of Miley Cyrus) imprinted on the front were made on-site and given away. They also had several big giveaways, including a trip to Maine, that were raffled off throughout the evening. Although I didn’t win any of the giveaways, I did walk away from the event with a free, new pair of my own customized New Balance 574s!

All guests were treated to the opportunity to customize their own 574s using the new customization kiosk at the New Balance Experience Store. From the sole and the shoe laces to the logo embroidery and the tongue label, every element of your 574s can be customized using the extremely easy-to-use customization kiosk. You can also name your 574s.

Here are my custom New Balance 574s, The Mean Green, designed by me, for me:

If you can’t make it to New Balance’s Experience Store, need not worry! You can also design your own 574s on New Balance’s website. A custom pair of New Balance 574s cost $139.95.

The event also celebrated and recognized New Balance’s continued commitment to manufacturing products in the United States.  For more than 75 years, New Balance has been committed to creating quality products in the United States. Believe it or not, New Balance is one of the only athletic shoe manufactures that can make this claim (which is all the more reason to celebrate!).

The New Balance Experience Store is located at 20th Street and 5th Avenue.

Miley Cyrus’ Tongue is Back!

I don’t know what is going on with Miley Cyrus and Liam Hemsworth, but he needs to give her tongue a hell of a lot more action. That poor sledgehammer.

Check out Miley’s new porno video for “Wrecking Ball” featuring her tongue.

The Shade Continues… Selena Gomez Mocks Miley Cyrus

Forget Britney and Christina… We have a new Disney starlets feud on our hands!

Check out this image of Selena Gomez at the premiere of Getaway in Los Angeles on Monday.

She’s blatantly mocking Miley Cyrus… And it’s amazing!

I don’t want to sway the votes (see poll below), but I’m all for Selena Gomez.

Lady Gaga Too Tired After VMAs To Open Car Door

After Lady Gaga bust her bare ass off on the MTV VMA stage, the absolute last thing she wanted to do was open a car door for herself. 

Makes total sense, right?

Here we see her go in for the grab like a normal person until she realizes

 

“Fuck it, I’m Lady Gaga! I live for the applause… Get that damn door for me!”

To be fair, she was probably tired from dancing during the entire broadcast…

Taylor Swift and Selena Gomez Hate Miley Cyrus

You have to see this video these GIFs (update: the original video has been removed from YouTube by Viacom).

It’s pretty clear that Taylor Swift and Selena Gomez hate Miley Cyrus. They can’t help but laugh at her tasteless performance, which actually makes me like both of them even more.

Stars, they’re just like us.

 

Taylor’s like… “I can’t. I’m so innocent.”

Then Taylor’s like… “Wait, is she for real?”

Then Taylor, Selena and everyone in the world was like… “Holy fuck! Did she just…?”

And, of course, Rihanna was like… “Bitch is trash.”

They’re Back!

George and William are back!

I first noticed they were back on Thursday evening when I had two friends over for a BBQ dinner on my roof. They reappeared again today from under a stack of wood while I was laying out and reading. They don’t seem to be scared of me.

Unfortunately, I think something is wrong with George’s wing. He has somewhat of an odd wobble when he walks. I’m hoping its nothing serious and he recovers soon.

It was fun to see George and William, but I’d like for them to find a more suitable home so I can enjoy my roof in peace.

See my post I’m A Dad: Meet George and William! for the story of how I came to know George and William.
