In theaters July 3, 2013, Disney Pictures has remade a classic: "The Lone Ranger." Okay, so we got the Tonto character with top billing. Oookaayyy. So, who's playing Tonto? Johnny Depp. Yep. It's okay. He's a Honorary Comanche Tribe Member, so it's cool, right?
'From producer Jerry Bruckheimer and director Gore Verbinski, the filmmaking team behind the blockbuster "Pirates of the Caribbean" franchise, comes Disney/Jerry Bruckheimer Films' "The Lone Ranger," a thrilling adventure infused with action and humor, in which the famed masked hero is brought to life through new eyes. Native American spirit warrior Tonto (Johnny Depp) recounts the untold tales that transformed John Reid (Armie Hammer), a man of the law, into a legend of justice-taking the audience on a runaway train of epic surprises and humorous friction as the two unlikely heroes must learn to work together and fight against greed and corruption.'
Check out the U.S. trailer above and an International trailer after the jump. Lots of running, jumping, hollering and explosions... mixed in with some laughs. Gotta love that about Bruckheimer Films.
In my lifetime I have come to marvel over the accomplishments of mankind. There have been things such as a rocket to rising above the clouds and into the galaxies to even land on what is called the moon. Cars have changed their appearance from huge and heavy to sleek and compact, some are so light that they can glide through the air and some can even float on water. But the minds of mankind have no limitations on creativity, for we were created in the image of THE CREATOR who not only created mankind but gave us the ability to use our brains to construct all the things that makes life easier for us today.
With all the things that have come from the creations of mankind why is it so difficult for us to know from whence we came? People have so many reasons but it is so difficult to come up with the TRUTH. We can believe in the grouping of molecules to form an energy that develops the structure of mankind and we can even come to believe that mankind once walked on all fours and evolved from monkeys or even the fish of the sea. But there is a reason for a book written centuries ago and is still being read today for it gives account of the beginnings of not only mankind but the existence of all that is the HEAVENS and the earth. So on the dawning of the Sabbath day let us allow ourselves to be given the TRUTH that will set us free from the lies that we've been made to believe.
I would like for you to acknowledge that TRUTH is found deep within you. It don't lie in books nor the scientific reasoning of men who have solved the equations of the atomic bomb or big bang theory. Close your eyes and listen to the voices that instruct you on the choices you make. There is a voice that speaks to you which allows you to make the RIGHT decisions in your life. This voice challenges the lies that you are being told and in this voice is the TRUTH.
A lot of people ask about the presence of YAHWEH in all the bad things that happen to mankind. Some want to place blame on HIM for the faults we take in. Others want to throw all of our wrongs on the alter and allow HIS forgiveness to release us from these wrong doings. Then there are a few who seek TRUTH from sources given to us. These very few people want to make since of the confusion placed in us to survive on.
The TRUTH revealed says that mankind evolved from one man and one woman. To explain this you need only look at your existence stemming from your family tree or the existence of your own family. In this same manner mankind came to be. From the creation of one man and one woman. From a CREATOR whose mind is far above the capabilities of any of the things mankind could create or even imagine. This is the reason why we have TRUTH in us but must look or search for it to exist.
Mankind was placed on earth and given dominion over it. For this reason mankind gave names to every living thing on the earth, great and small. Most people don't know what the word dominion means and they have shallowed themselves to believe that we have to lower ourselves to other men who have taken in the spirit that has taken authority over us from our disobedience of YAHWEH'S first commandment to us, that we shall eat from every tree on the earth but not touch the tree in the midst of the garden; for which we reside that is the tree of the knowledge of good and evil.
Because of this disobedience we separated ourselves from knowing TRUTH. For this reason we have to seek TRUTH out from within us. In knowing good and evil, we've allowed the dominion of the earth to change hands. A crafty and cunning spirit that led us to disobey YAHWEH also slicked himself into the minds of a weak generation which educated all generations to come. This evil spirit has made weak men strong and has made strong men feel weak.
In books there is knowledge. There are books that can teach anything of all things. Yet TRUTH still has to be sought after. How can we find TRUTH if, we can make ourselve

This past weekend Nike footwear designer Jonathan Johnson-Griffin made it a trip to ATL for the Nike Black History Month event I put together. It just so happens the event date landed on one of the biggest footwear release dates this year. The release of the Cork Lebron X. I helped put together an in-store with the good people at Wish ATL and the rest as they say... is history.
It was really amazing to pull up to Wish on Saturday morning and see over 100 heads lined up in the freezing cold (cold for ATL) with the hopes on getting their hands on a pair. JJG signed boxes of the shoe's for those lucky enough to secure a pair.
He's a really, really cool guy. It was great to have him in ATL during such a monumental release. Shouts to Frank and good people at Wish & Nice Kicks. To so more pics from the event click here.
To be in the WILL OF GOD is an easy thing to do. To be obedient to HIS commands are as easy as knowing right from wrong, for what is right for us is also right in the eyes of GOD. What makes being right hard to do and wrong for us is how we are turned away from the reality of righteousness and the TRUTH.
You see we live in a world where being right is a matter of the opinions of those who justify what right is for us. A baby may think that it is right to drink his milk all day long but his mother may only want him to drink his milk twice a day and at certain times in that day. So in order to be right we have to be careful of who we are trying to please or who will justify the right we're trying to do.
So now we have to see how easy it is for us to turn away from that which is right in the eyes of GOD. YAHWEH is not as hard to please as we think that HE is. There are those who don't believe in HIM who thinks that all a believer has to do is to repent and all is pleasing to the eyes of GOD. This is not so because in order to be pleasing to YAHWEH in our repentance, we have to be sincere in our repentance.
As we live from day to day, we must look at the ways of mankind and think about what it is that we have to do in order to survive a righteous life. We have to look at the things that are placed before us and understand what they are there to do. Are they temptations for doing something wrong or will they make our walk to righteousness easier to stay on the right path. We must be able to distinguish between the two or we will see how easy it is to turn away from what it is we are trying to do.
A woman says that she does not dress seductive to make men lust over her but she wears tightly short fitting dresses that will turn the eyes of any man. A man says that wearing his pants below his waste is the style and it looks good but he knows that he can't succeed righteously and to whose eyes do this style look good too. In one way killing innocent people are the right thing to do but in other ways it is called murder and is wrong.
Because TRUTH is obscured, doing what is right can easily be made wrong and because it is so easy to turn away from TRUTH, we tend to do that which is wrong and can justify it. A minister has tried to lead a lifestyle that is pleasing in the eyes of the congregation that he ministers too. Temptation is something that persuades you to see something that is not really there and it is made to please the senses of those who are being tempted. So in our history men have been wanting for sexual pleasures of young boys and girls and there were no such thing as a pedophile. These children were just taken and their identities were wounded. A lot of this was done right behind the pulpit. The preacher was either wedding young girls to older men or he was gratifying himself to meet his own pleasures. His homosexual tendencies were hidden but still he satisfied his arousals in secret.
Today child abuse has been finely tuned and identified by but there are still those who think that it is right for them to take children and sexually entice and seduce them into their pleasures. In the eyes of those who look on with the eyes of today, this is wrong but how and what does the pedophile think and feel as he submits to his temptations?
I have some questions for you. Can a pedophile have children and not teach them to be pedophiles? Can homosexuals have children and teach them not to be homosexuals? Can the TRUTH be a lie and taught to be TRUTH? There are those who think that a wrong can be a right and taught to be right but can this be TRUTH? There are some who will swear to the justifications of killing in war but will say that street murder is not the same but know that killing is wrong no matter how it is being done.
Because of the ways in which we are educated to do that which is right for some and wrong for others, it is easy for us to turn away from that which is TRUTHF
On New Year's Eve Nike dropped the Air Max OG pack which included the Air Max 90 (Infared), Air Max 95, Air Max 1, and Air Max 97 all in original color ways.
Less than a month later, the OG pack get's a remix. This time we get the same classic silhouettes but with updated mesh, called "Engineered Mesh." Read below for more details.
The Nike Air Max 1, 90, 95, and 97 are some of the most pined-after silhouettes that Nike has to offer. One would be hard pressed not to find a pair roaming the streets in major cities all over the world - whether they're tied tightly to carry someone to a new PR or loosely laced under a pair of jeans. The Nike Air Max line redefined and transcended the look of sport to become a cultural movement. So when Nike designers started discussing ways to reinvent these iconic models, they didn't take it lightly. How to re-imagine these classics while staying true to the sneakers' timeless style?
Enter Nike Engineered Mesh: new proprietary mesh patterns that enhance the functionality while retaining the overall look of the original models. It enables both tight and loose perforation patterns to replace traditional color blocking, gradients and overlay placement. Originally used in performance running footwear, the varying perf patterns allow for "zoned" contruction: Tighter patterns are placed where durability is paramount while looser patterns are used where breathability reigns supreme. The result is a more breathable, flexible and durable Air Max family - lighter and leaner than ever.
The Engineered Mesh Air Max collection will be available beginning January 2013.
Update: The Air Max EM Pack drops on Jan 17th, 2013.
This here is a true tragedy. Just before Christmas and on the last day of school before Xmas break 14 year old Paul Sampleton was murdered inside his own home. The motive... his sneakers?! From what I understand this young man arrives home after school and cats are inside his house waiting on him. They tie him up in the kitchen, murder him, and then take his sneakers.
This is just sick! Dudes are going to new levels for satisfy their thirst for sneakers and it's truly getting outta hand.
What also make's me disappointed is little to none of the major sneaker blogs / websites are covering this story or offering to help find the killers who did this. This could of easily been me or one of my friends, so it hits close to home.
Just want to say Rest In Peace to Paul Sampleton and The Kaos Effect sends our prayers to his family. We hope the person (people) who did this are found and they get the Sam Jack "A Time To Kill" treatment.
Out of all the kicks I own... I don't have any made out of cork. Lebron X corks are CRAZY! Nike making a celebratory shoe for Bron as he wins a ring, a gold medal, and MVP all in the same summer. You might wanna toast up! These are supposed to be dropping in December, but there's no official release date yet. Don't expect these to pop up at your local Foot Locker though. Word is these will be pretty exclusive. Need me a pair for sure!
