Nike SB Wallpaper

Here is a collection of Nike SB wallpaper I have saved over the years from various websites.  These wallpapers are nice because they have the top of the sneaker box motif.  As a bonus I’ve also included an elephant print wallpaper.

‘47 Twins Toronto Blue Jays Retro Hat

I’ve been trying to upload a regular post about hats for a while now but have been delayed all summer thanks to trips and activities.  But today I finally had a few hours to organize my hats, take pictures, and even make a video.  This blog post is about my Blue Jays 47 Brand hat, and it’s funny because I actually took these pictures in the beginning of summer and I’m finally writing about it now in the end of summer.  It seems appropriate though because the Jays are the boys of summer, and I spent this summer watching the team.
What’s also funny is that I have a large 47 Brand collection, and this is the second time I’m mentioning a hat from them.  I guess it’s because I’ve been collecting way too many New Era fitteds over the last couple of years.  However the truth is I love 47 Brand and there’s not a week that goes by that I don’t wear a Franchise hat.
This Blue Jays hat is particularly important to me because it’s a retro version of my hometown team.  It represents the logo version I grew up watching and all the achievements the team had while using it.  The Franchise model is a hundred percent cotton, while the bill or brim uses plastic.  These two features not only make the hat comfortable, but also durable.  Unfortunately, this version of the hat has now been updated and no longer exists which makes me very thankful that the durability of 47 Brand hats will mean this hat will last me for years.

Nintendo Wii U Legend of Zelda Deluxe Bundle

Okay I pulled the trigger today and finally bought a Wii U.  This decision was not without previous reflection.  The truth is I was avoiding the Wii U because of its lack of games, but more specifically adult themed games.  I just felt like I would be missing so many games exclusive to Sony or Xbox One by buying a Wii U.  But then as time went on, I noticed Nintendo was staying the same, while the other consoles were changing.  The other consoles were focusing on online play (something I don’t do), DLC (something I hate), social media (something that is useless to me), and focusing on games I suck at (shooters).   And it was then that I decided I wanted to support the company that made games that were fun to play with, inspiring and colorful, and that were easy to play.  I also bought the Zelda bundle because the Wii U is now cheaper, and I had some gift cards.  At the end of the day, I’m happy with this decision.
