THE INTERNET PERFORM AT THE LOFT IN ATLANTA

           Video edit by Brent Gates

"The Internet Take Over The Loft"

Unorthodox! Radical! Avant-garde! Those are the words that came to mind when I witnessed The Internet perform at Atlanta's intimate music venue, The Loft, last week.
A soft, delicate, and passionate sound filled the room seducing every ear in the audience. Taking center stage stood a slim, fresh-faced, Syd the Kyd with a laid back, west coast swagger and the voice of an angel! Standing to her right was Matt Martians accompanying her with the congos and key strokes and behind her the rest of the band jamming away, creating a warm, pleasant, vibe-heavy atmosphere.
The Internet's fusion of experimental jazz and neo soul create such a unique sound which makes you feel good.  "Feel Good" in fact is the title of their latest project from which they performed several songs from.
To hear such a warm, melodic jazz sound project from this 5 member band is truly radical.  Nothing you would expect from Odd Future.  I won't say why... I'll show you... Check out the mini video recap above and enjoy the dope shots I captured below!

NIKE TRAINING CLUB (NTC) LAUNCH IN ATLANTA! JUST DO IT!!

 NIKE TRAINING CLUB (NTC) LAUNCH IN ATLANTA! JUST DO IT!!


"Squat! Jump! Drop! Plank! Push Up! Jumping jacks!! Keep moving, whatever you do, DON'T stop!!" said one of the extremely fit, motivating trainers from NTC all while I was sweating balls and hanging on for dear life during a high intensity workout courtesy of NIKE.


Yesterday night was the launch of the long awaited Nike Training Club (NTC) in Atlanta.  Seventy plus some motivated individuals ready to put in work, get fit, and most likely  in the process of getting summertime fine gathered at the Nike Store in Lennox Mall. Of course I couldn't miss out on a free training class from professional trainers, therefore I joined the awesome ladies of #TeamVictory and some friends from a run club I participate with known as "Pacers and Movers".  


Upon arrival I was instructed to sign a waiver, then given the opportunity to try out a pair of the New Nike Free 5.0 TR Fit and use them through the workout. I must say that these are one of the most comfortable workout shoes I have worn thus far.  The fit felt extremely secure, light weight,  ultra flexible, and most of all super comfy.  

After stretching for a bit it was time to head up stairs, but not without a pep talk from the trainers.  They made sure we heard them loud and clear.... It was time to put in work!!

Then the sweating began.  The 45 minute high intensity training session was a circuit combination of plyometrics, strength training, and lots of cardio.  There was a really cool DJ on site so the music was booming, the energy was high and being around so many people ready to sweat made this workout session amazing.  I felt extremely motivated by the trainers who traveled around the group pushing people individually to reach further than they imagined they could.  The moments where I would usually give up if I were working out alone were the moments where I felt inspired to push a little harder. Upon completing the workout we all got a really good stretch and were able to socialize with like minded people.  Sure my legs felt like jello but my spirits were high and I felt good.  I did It! I imagine the rest of the individuals present felt that same sense of accomplishment.  

Jumps, squats, planks, pushups, and Supermans later I felt ready to keep working towards my fitness goals thanks to Nike!

Are you passionate about fitness, do you want to become a healthier you? Join the next NTC sessions.

The Nike Store @ Lennox Mall will hold NTC sessions every Thursday @ 8 pm!! Show up 20 minutes early to check in and stretch!! Remember to show up with a "Just Do It" attitude and high spirits!! Build a better you!!

ALL HAIL THE KING! COP YOUR K-DOT TEE


                                                     K-Dot Parody Tee (Buy One Here)  

                       "ALL HAIL THE KING!"                      
All hail the King!! I'm sure by now you must all be aware of my undying love for K-Dot.  I'm sure that if your taste in music is anywhere near decent you've got love for him too!

Last month I received the coolest K-Dot parody tee which makes reference to  some of his most controversial, pot-stirring bars from "Control".  I've been wearing the hell out of it every time I find the chance.  Everywhere I go, everyone asks, "Where did you get that shirt?!"  Well, no need to wonder anymore.  I've got you covered.  This tee is perfect for cool chicks and dudes who love comfy, dope tees and good music.  Cop yours for only $25 (free shipping anywhere in the US) HERE.


Wore my K-Dot Tee while riding my scooter around the city with my favorite baggy Levi's 511, a checkered flannel, and my all white converse all stars.
