Young Buck

Brandon Jennings was robbed. Third place? When will the national media give Milwaukee the recognition it deserves? Kudos to John Hammond for this draft pick.

Save The Music

Thanks to Born To Be Nervous for posting this video. This class puts on a simply amazing performance of Beach House's "Zebra". Another reason for schools to do everything they can to save music programs.

Back On The Market

Threadless has reprinted one of my friend Matt Fleming's original designs. Here is your chance to grab it now, since you did not 8 years ago. Mopeds and wine, my kind of party. 

I Beileve Children Are The Future

I came across this letter on Thrillist the other day. I know I am not the best writer and a good Bull Sh*ter but this kid is unbelievable.  "Peter, Please Stop Doing This."

The "Artful Dodger"

I am really digging the new Brooklyn themed t-shirt from Homage. It pays respect to early 19th lingo, baseball and classic novels. A winning combination in my book.

Also as a special gift to my readers via In My Short Sleeve's Twitter feed, Homage is having a it's finally t-shirt weather sale. Use the coupon code "Spring" to receive 20% off your next Homage purchase.

Thinking Outside The Shoe Box

I came across an article about a Puma and fuseproject collaboration on Trendcentral. For the last few years the two parties have been working on reinventing the shoe box. The outcome? No more box. Now Puma's "Clever Little Bag" is a shoe container and reusable bag.

And by eliminating the shoe box, Puma reduces their cardboard use by 65%. The new design is part of Puma's new long-term sustainability program called Puma.Safe. Look for them in stores starting in 2011.

Good news for sneaker heads everywhere.

Fear The Deer

As good as the Bucks looked last night, it pales in comparison to the performance Bango put on last night. Fear the Deer.

Funny Fanatic

I am not a Kobe Bryant fan. I know this is a fake but it is still funny.

Red Bird Show

Good local music, going to a good cause. The Red Bird Benefit Show, May 14th at the Bay View Brewhaus. Come on people it's for the kids. As the Red Bird mission says..."Handing an instrument to a child is the first step towards a new song."

#1 Catholic Party School

Playboy has given the honor of best Catholic party school to Marquette University. As they guys at Cracked Sidewalks said... this should help with recruiting. 

You Light Up My Life

I am a bit young to remember the first Tron movie. But the trailer for the new Tron Legacy looks pretty amazing, plus Daft Punk is scoring the soundtrack. The movie will not out until the end of the year, but until then the fine folks at Threadless have given you something to pass the time - a glow in the dark t-shirt and hoodie.

No More Lonely Nights

Thanks to the fine folks at Sears for making my nights much more enjoyable. Also I am going to follow the advice of local reader DJ Kusi and get two for a threesome.

The Gift of Music

This morning after my run, I found a CD taped to the bulletin board. One of my mix tape compadres, Michael Seidel told me about this movement in other cities. So when I saw the CD, I jumped all over it. I want to thank the creator for making and placing it in our fair city. 

So I order to pay it forward and I have made my own mix. I have placed it somewhere in the city. Key your eyes out for it...

Here is the track list:

Little Secrets (Steed Lord Remix)             Passion Pit
Giving Up The Sunshowers                      M.I.A. vs Vampire Weekend
It Goes On And On                                 The Avett Brothers
Daydreamin' (Feat. Jill Scott)                   Lupe Fiasco
I'll Be in the Sky                                     B.o.B  
Your Easy Lovin' Ain't Pleasin' Nothin' Mayer Hawthorne  
Stranger                                                 Dr. Dog
Setting Sun                                            Fever Marlene
Bohemian Rhapsody                              The Flaming Lips
Too Many Dicks (On The Dance Floor)  Flight Of The Conchords
Dog Days Are Over                                 Florence & The Machine
Is There Any Love? (Feat. Wale)              KiD CuDi

The Play Of The Year

I am not a Chicago sports fans by any means, but this play is pretty amazing.
