“this is a once in a lifetime thing you witness and see and Michael Jordan is one of them” – Calvan Fowler
I’m hanging out with Jordan expert and Bed Stuy store, Jordan Heads Brooklyn owner, Calvan Fowler talking Jordans, Be Like Mike the stock market and sneakerhead culture. Am I finally going to get my first pair of retro Js? Watch below!
It’s a rare day that I’m out and about in NYC without seeing a few people wearing Jordans. And who can forget that moment in Spike Lee’s Do the Right Thing when Buggin’ Out flipped on a Larry Bird jersey-wearing neighbor for stepping on his fresh new Jordans. Jordan is more than the man and the brand, it’s become a culture. As hip-hop culture became mainstream American culture, the Jordan brand transcended American culture too (have you seen the Japanese Jordan heads?!). Today, it’s no longer just a shoe for basketball players, NBA fans, or even fans of Michael Jordan. They’re a major accessory for “street fashion,” which means they’re everywhere. Inspired by the fresh kicks here is a prequel to my video at Jordan sneaker mecca, Jordan Heads Brooklyn, that’s coming to you soon! Let’s chat with some Jordan heads.
From serving us serious #blackgirlmagic with cameos from women like Zendaya and Serena Williams to stunning cinematography, Southern gothic and melodic free verse we know we have to at least watch this 10 more times or until we commit to memory. Here are visual images from Beyoncé’s Lemonade that will have you signing up for Tidal!
Here’s the second part of my Periscope Q&A on traveling to Havana, Cuba where I talk about the food, the people and what it was like visiting a Communist country.
I like fresh flowers in my apartment weekly, I find beautiful lingerie empowering, single or in a relationship; if you haven’t managed to send me a loving text or email in all of the time we’ve been together I’d find it pretty uncomfortable if Hallmark gave you the cojones (and if you do feel the impulse to give me a card, they better be dope like Cleo Wade’s for Harper’s Bazaar)
