my brethren are making it rain! or, snow.. kwame nkrumah-acheampong is ghana's first and only athlete to qualify for any winter olympics. ever.
this past march he qualified for the 2010 games by breaking the magical 140-point barrier set by the FIS, and he was raised in ghana without seeing a snowflake until he was 27. not that he expects to win a medal, his goal is simply to, "is to ski very well and prove to people that I deserve to be on the hill, with the other top world class athletes". the radness.

surface 2 air did a cool collabo with sølve sundsbø, a norweigan photographer with a penchant for taking and manipulating cleverly off-beat images. s2a used a few of these to make a super cute bag, a dress and a top.

if i had a world of my own, everything would be nonsense. nothing would be what it is because everything would be what it isn't.
and contrary-wise; what it is it wouldn't be, and what it wouldn't be, it would.

first off, happy belated canada day. i've been kind of m.i.a. for the past few days with my mom in town visiting, and the weather being ridiculously pleasant. hung out at the beach a bunch with some homies, slipped and fell on some barnacles climbing a huge rock at third and shredded the shit out of my leg. then i went ahead and lost my phone yesterday. the radness.
oh, and much to phil's amusement, i passed the fuck out while watching 'transformers 2' last night. seriously, amid all of the explosions and megan fox's revealing outfits, i took a nap.
which segways perfectly into the topic of this post - a couple of my california homies are in this movie with the aforementioned meggie and adam brody. check the trailer!!
