Smells Like Victory

Thanks for Greg Matzek for finding this 2011 Wisconsin Badgers Rose Bowl Championship shirt. ESPN made a bit of a mistake leaking this before the game tomorrow. I hope this will not provide bulletin board material for TCU.

Now A Reward To Grow A Stach

You guys should have jumped on this train about 18 days ago. Good thing I can turn one around in two days.

One iPad and a Microphone

I have never thought about getting an iPad until now. Thank you for the developers who put the time in to develop this pretty amazing looking app. 

Your Highness Trailer

Looks like another hit for Danny McBride. Nice pull getting Zooey Deshanel and Natalie Portman as your leading ladies.

I'm Not Loving It

I stumbled upon this sponsored tweet from McDonalds today. Needless to say, I'm not loving it. That is not to say I do not like McDonalds, I just don't like the execution. 


I am not saying I know everything about social media and my grammar is suspect at best, but this tweet is ridiculous.


It is time for you to head to the Twitter grammar rodeo. It looks like Grimace wrote this tweet


Oh and if you have not heard... "The McRib is back"

So Long Al Harris

The Packers said goodbye to Al Harris today. I know revenge is a dish best served cold, but I hope you don't come back and do this to the Packers in the playoffs.  

Cadillac Sky Comes Back To Milwaukee

Cadillac Sky opened for Mumford and Sons a few weeks back at The Pabst Theater. Luckily for all of you who missed them the first time, they are bringing their high energy bluegrass and blues back to Milwaukee. It's another $10 buck show, you will be sorry if you miss them again.

I Went To Four Years Of College For This?

This was my fortune today. It come from a cookie, so it has to come true. Look for my book next year titled "I Went To Four Years of College For This?" 


Thanks to Laura Gainor for taking the picture. Please note that I do not have a black eye, thanks for your concern. 

Cleveland Strikes Back

Well played Cleveland, well played

ESPN Finally Fears The Deer

I really like the new commercial with Brandon Jennings and Bango for ESPN NBA Destination. It is about time the Bucks get some national attention.

David Cross Loves Kids In Milwaukee

Great interview with David Cross on Jimmy Kimmel. As you can see David Cross thinks kids in Milwaukee are the most talented.

Daft Punk Goes Disney and Hollywood

One of the most anticipated 3D movies to come our this year, can only be accompanied by a great sound track. Leave it to two French robots (a.k.a Daft Punk) to compse a soundtrack just as amazing as the movie. Tron: Legacy comes out December 17 and today a video montage featuring the song "Drezzed" from the soundtrack featuring a cameo from Daft Punk. Besure to look closely. 



In related Daft Punk news, if you do not have your halloween costume. Here is an idea if you have the time. This might the best costume ever.

I Ate That At Blue's Egg

Creamy Polenta with lacinato kale, roast mushrooms, poached eggs, and sauce fonduta. I highly recommend getting the side of thick cut bacon to accompany. The only problem with Blue's Egg is that it's not next to my apartment.

A Way To Save The Packers' Season

Just because the Packer's season is going south does not mean your fashion sense has too. Help the Packers salvage their season and your sense of fashion with the Wizconsin original "Bart Starr T-shirt.


You can look as good as this "Friend of Wizconsin." Go Pack Go!

The Brooklyn Space Program: Backed By Science

I have been joking this week that I am not "Backed By Science" but the Brooklyn Space Program is for real. They sent a HD camera to space via a Homemade Spacecraft , I have not... yet. Thanks to Burnhearts for posting.

Brett Favre The Punchline

Thanks to The Onion A/V Club for finding this gem from Taiwan. How the mighty have fallen. From this to being a punchline on 30 Rock and Bill Maher, once a hero now Favre needs an image overhaul. Good luck, they are expensive. Oh and Brett, why the Crocks?

Street Art Milwaukee

It appears that Milwaukee is starting to get a street art scene. I saw these guys on my ride home from work. Any guesses where I saw this piece? 


This also counts as my contribution to gallery night. Milwaukee you are welcome.  

Star Wars, Doctors, & Sneakers..Oh My

Most of you know that I love sneakers. With both the college and NBA seasons along with holidays upon us, sneaker companies are ramping up marketing efforts. 


Below are two spots that caught my attention. Both play off history, legend, and pay homage to the past. 


The first is a great adidas Originals spot playing off The Star Wars cantina scene. I love what adidas have done with their Originals collection over the last few years. They have struck the right cord between athlete, celebrity, and music. 


This Star Wars spot it no different. Every Star Wars fan loves this scene and adidas puts a nice spin on it. And a great Daft Punk cameo, it only seems fitting. 



Thanks to Walk On Spot for posting this Converse spot. I agree with his comments, ever since Nike acquired the Converse, they have done a great job putting life back into the brand. The use of legends is great. Julius Erving and God Shammgod, one of the greatest names in all of basketball, give credibility to a brand trying to jump start their basketball line after Dwyane Wade jumped to the Jordan Brand.   


Plus the choice of  The White Stripes "Hello Operator" is a great touch.

Style Up Your Marquette Midnight Madness

With midnight madness right around the corner it is time to get back in the swing of college basketball. That means wind sprints, face paint, and getting your gear straight. It is time to either dust off or purchase your very own "AL" t-shirt. Show your support in style. Go Marquette.


Look as good as these Friends of Wizconsin...

The Dark Side of The Simpsons

When I saw this video posted on 88Nine's Facebook wall I was kind of excited. Having a chance to check out Exit Through The Gift Shop, I was interested to see the outcome of a Bansky and Matt Groening collaboration. The whole thing did not disappoint. Bansky stuck to his roots and Groening and his team, allowed him to have artistic freedom. Good job to everyone involved.

adidas Basketball: Fast Don't Lie

While I might not be as fast as Brian Gainor, if you put me in that gold adidas warm-up and my game would most definitely elevate. I look good in gold.

Nike Marty McFly's High Tops

Anyone who grew up watching the Back To The Future franchise has their favorite moments. For some it might be the Delorean, for other it might be Doc Brown, but for me it was always the Nike sneakers from Back To Future II (aka The Marty McFly's). 


It appears that 2015 is now. For the low price of $15,000, you can have your own pair of custom made Nikes  worn by Michael J. Fox. They are self-lacing, so they practically pay for themselves.

HOLLERADO - AMERICANARAMA (NEW)




If you like indie-rock and 8-bit video games, then you might like this music video. This 8-bit human video apparently features someone who played the "serial killer" on season 5 of The Wire.

Nick Kusiak "AKA - DJ Kusi" - Chicago, IL 


It was college shirt day. Take one look and see which one stands out and is the best looking shirt of the group. Midnight Madness is right around the corner, make sure you have your "AL" t-shirt ready for this year. 

Motivation Weekend



Just a bit of motovation for me and the rest of the participants in this weekend's Lakefront Marathon. Best of luck to everyone. And special thanks to the Badgerland Striders, all the volunteers and supporters that help make it happen.

The Sauce Makes The Difference



Here is another jam by Duck Sauce. Check out all the cameos. I only hope the song Geno Walker writes for me is half as good, I waiting Geno. 

It's Wanye Brady Bitch...



It is a real surprise to me that Mike Tyson is such a bad dancer. Now that being said, I would not want to take a punch from him or mess with his pigeons. I will start with "Glass Joe" and work my way up.

Inception Trailer A Capella Re-Dub



Thanks to local reader Chris Boggs for passing this along. Also, I thought Inception was a great movie but it should have been shot in 3D. 

I Let The Tomatoes Fly

Here is my recap of yesterday's greatest event in Milwaukee. Without having my offensive line, I took a bit of a beating. Right off the bat, I took one to the face and several to the chest, neck and side. In hindsight, it was all worth it. Thanks again to the East Side Business Improvement District for putting on the "Tomato Romp". I still find it ironic that we are having a food fight to help Feed America











And for the second time, I made the news on CBS 58. This time they got my better side (see 25 seconds in). We will see you all next year

It is time for me to go back and get my masters in communication and not apologize for it. Thanks Loo, for finding me some inspiration. 

The White Party IV



I had the privilege of attending this years edition of The White Party Brooklyn. Organizer, Justin Fluck and his team organized another memorable party. 
I have taken notes and this years Turtleneck Party is going to be the best ever. Check out The White Party IV photos here.
