Weekend wrap-up

So we wrap up the first week (sort of) or our new blog.  It’s still pretty much unshaped, but Cheesecake and I spoke over the weekend, and had a brainstorm on things to come.  Hopefully, soon enough, we can shape this up, and  gain our own identity.  Just to wrap up what went on w/ myself this weekend, much food was consumed, much beer was enjoyed, and also much love was had.  Spending time with the people I care most about is what makes us go about our lives, and I am fortunate enough to have spent all weekend doing so.

And as an added bonus, I saw 2 great movies this weekend, The Bourne Legacy (our own take coming up soon), and The Girl with the Dragon Tatoo. (also our own take coming soon).

I will try to shy away from writing too many reviews as there are too much of that already, but if and when we do it, it will be in a different sort of style that won’t dive into too many boring details.

Let’s put this week behind us, and start a-new.  Everyday we wake up should be a blessing, and no matter how crappy things can get for you, someone else out there has it even crappier.

BTW, what did everyone think of the closing ceremonies for the Olympics?  Great to see the Spice Girls, and whatever is left of Oasis make an appearance. And some of the 80’s hits that were played were awesome (Pet Shop Boys costumes were great!) One Direction just didn’t do it for me, though.  Also loved how the stage looked like the Union Jack.

*Cheesecake’s note: I apologize for the poor quality of the video, the original video was taken down by the user. What a Debbie Downer.

And lastly, I leave you with a Meme.

Know your “swag.”

Swag. We’ve all heard of it. People wearing snapbacks and Air Jordan retro’s and what not. But here’s the thing. Rarely will you find one who understands what the brands stand for.

Cheesecake Note: As far as The Big Cheese and I are concerned, swag is the free goodies we get at conventions. It is widely known as that and we shall stick to it.

Everyone knows that Air Jordans were the shoes popularized by The Air Man himself, and they are sold for hundreds to even thousands of dollars. Hats, whether fitted or adjustable, are made by several brands, like New Era and Starter. These brands took root in sports. New Era for baseball caps, Jordans for basketball sneakers… But what about those other brands? Can’t leave them dry, can you? They have backgrounds, too! Some in skateboarding, some in music, some in art. Know your swag.
