This Was Not Available When I Was Child Actor

This was an actual grade school play.

I Would Like One Red Delicious Please

I have posted about Matt Fleming's designs before but he continues to out do himself. I love the Flight of the Concords inspired "Red Delicious" at Kindred Market

Regional Baylor Studios

Last Friday for work, the team and I took a 30 minute field trip. We went to Regional Baylor Studios on East Buffalo. It was my first time there and I had never seen his work before. I have to say, I was blown away. I dug everything from the colors, the concepts and his energy and passion. He was a real cool guy and was very hospitable. 

Support local art. Check out more work from Regional Baylor here and follow him on Twitter.

Looking Good

The Packers unveiled a new alternate jersey for the 2010 season. I have to say they hit a home run. It borrows from their rich tradition with a modern twist. It is expected that the team will wear the jersey for one home in the 2010 season.

Believe the Hype

I am a diehard Bucks fans and can't wait for the day when Bougt, Jennings, and the crew consistently compete with Bron and Cavs.  That being said I really hope he stays in the Cleve. It will make it that much more sweeter when the Bucks regain control of the Central Division. 

However, Cleveland is a underrated city and the butt of many jokes. But there is a lot of cool things coming out of Cuyahoga County, like this line of shirts from I Love The Hype. They have a modern feel of the old "Big Headed" athlete cartoon shirts from the late '80s. 

If you are a fan of Cleveland, the NBA, or hip shirts, check out their site and love the hype. 

Another McSecret

First it was the McSurf and Turf. Then it was the McGang Bang. Now the rumor out of San Francisco is the Mc10:35, a sandwich that can be only ordered between breakfast and lunch. It combines the McDouble and Egg McMuffin, in a not so holy union.  

Check out more on the Mc10:35 at The Consumerist

(re)Friend of Wizconsin

The Bronze Fonz is ready for the NCAA Tournament and Opening Day. Are you? If not get your Wizconsin here or contact me directly - michaelwiz@gmail.com. 

How Did I Sleep On This...

I consider myself a big music fan. How could I have slipped on The Most Anticipated Album Ever. I guess 80's hair metal is back. If you want to "Feel The Steel" check out Steel Panther and do not forget to sign up for their "Groupie For a Day Contest" - every girls dream.

Mr. Obama, I know you are a big Chicago sports fan but let me know if you want to sport a Wizconsin shirt for real. I think green and gold is your color.

Dancin, Dancin, Dancin Machine

Buzz Williams looked great in that baby blue blazer. But you can look better. Now that it is a forgone conclusion that Marquette is going to the "Big Dance", you need to grab you new "Dance Partner." The Wizconsin original "The AL." 

Combining classic and current colors this hip and stylish shirt almost guarantees you will never dance alone again. 

Look for it in the upper deck of the BC and around town during March Madness. Shoot me an email if you want to grab your new dance partner. - michaelwiz@gmail.com 

Look how good Tim looks in his.

When I Do Not Get Art

First off, thank you Geno for getting me this picture. I get the statue of Gandhi because of the work he did for civil movements. But I still do not know why it is in Charlotte? I guess they needed a Gandhi statue if you were going to name a park after him.
