Side note: You might recognize one of the drummers, the skinny bloke on the right side with the leather cap and sunglasses trying not to be recognized....that's Ginger Baker of Cream. Also appearing is Andy White, English session drummer, who was the only other person besides Paul McCartney, to play drums on a Beatles song. White played on the U.S. single versions of "Love Me Do" and "P.S. I Love You."

There have been many in a long line of annoyingly horrible shoe fads. As of late we've been seen Crocs, Uggs and those stupid peasant slippers that every skinny-jeaned she-douche hipster seems to come equipped with. Plus, let us not forget the "fanny pack" of all footwear: those stupid ass hiking sandals that look like something The Predator would wear to a weekend up to Big Sur, that ironically, always end up on the feet on the most obese and sedentary individuals to ever wear white socks.
With that being said I introduce to you the Vibram Five Fingers. (I guess the Five Toes had less of a ring to it.) And while they have been around for a while, there has been a marketing push as of late to make them next big thing. Even TIME magazine awarded them one of the best inventions of 2007. The website even claims that these glorified footie socks will "make you stronger and healthier, improve your balance, agility and proprioception"(whatever the fuck that is!) However, I was mildly shocked that the price range for these dorksiders range below the $100 mark.
And while I may be getting ahead of myself by predicting this trend , I'll bet you dimes to donuts that in few months we'll be seeing these in some big movie or tv show and then on the knock off aisle at Walgreens. I call shenanigans on the Vibram Five Fingers! Or should I say shoe-nanigans. Wah wah.
What you see in these videos is real, not fake or miniaturized, not any kind of CGI wizardry. Keith Loutit is the creator of these videos and if I did drugs he would be my hero.

The Black Eyed Peas' manager Polo Molina is being sued for punching Perez Hilton in the face at the 2009 MuchMusic Video Awards Sunday night, according to the AP:
The celebrity blogger, whose real name is Mario Lavandeira, sued the Peas' road manager in Los Angeles for battery and intentional infliction of emotional distress. He is seeking unspecified damages of more than $25,000.
"Perez Hilton was assaulted by the band's road manager because he would not agree to stop writing about the Black Eyed Peas on his Web site," Bryan Freedman, Hilton's lawyer, said in a statement. "Whether you love Perez or hate him, he is entitled to his freedom of speech without fear of physical violence. This lawsuit will make the statement that violence is never the answer."
Wait. I thought he got punched in the face for calling Will.I.am a "fucking faggot" not because he's a shining crusader of first amendment rights. I guess I missed the part where Perez and George Washington battled the King of England for the right to make it look like splooge is falling out of Britney's dress. Must've happen between all the Twitters.

Seriously, I really don't want to make fun of this because it's actually a really sad story, but I can't help it. And I'm sorry but homosexuality is no more caused by demons than HIV is contracted by stubbing your toe. Unless you stub your toe at a glory hole. Repeatedly. But I digress.
Now just when you think this news piece will show a different, informed side to this whole event there is a woman that's a mentor for gay teens that is interviewed for her perspective. Her last line is, sadly, very funny to me or maybe it's just how it's edited. And making light of this is probably why my black soul will be eaten by an AIDS demon while I sleep.
That's a nice, but antiquated sentiment given that a lot of kids today have become socially maladjusted, internet-addicted spoiled effing brats. For example, this young lad that has just had his World of Warcraft account shut down by his parents. Good for them. And even better that his younger brother had the where-with-all to document it for posterity.
Amazing. Someone, other than Billy Mays, thought this was a good idea.
Speaking of senseless products, I'm reposting this one to remind us all that sometimes necessity is not the mother of invention.
