You can say that I am abit obsessed with Converse All Stars sneakers. Like I am in love with these shoes, they are so comfy, stylish, unique and they can basically fit with anything in your wardrobe. Converse is an American clothing company that has been making fashion trends through all the years.
Converse is well known for the Converse Chuck Taylor sneaker All Star. Like many of you, I always wondered why is it that the All Stars called Chuck Taylor and only to find out if was named after a well known American basketball player from the 1920s. Charles Hollis “Chuck” Taylor was also known as a shoe evangelist for Converse. He was a great asset to Converse as they named the shoe after him and the shoe has been constant production since 1917.
Converse Chuck Taylor sneaker is still relevant till this day. Nowadays people even design their own Chucks with studs, art designs or anything that relates to them. I can’t wait to have my own walking in closet full of all kinds of All Star sneakers, that is how obsessed I am. 🙂
Crafted entirely from driftwood, the vast, thought-provoking masterpiece was created by sculptor Paul Baliker, 59, who describes it as a ‘call to action’. ‘I started out sculpting to put food on the table, I never dreamt of where it would lead,’ he said. ‘I hope that people can see the environmental message I attempt to portray, and perhaps think hard about the impact man has on the natural world’. Mr Baliker spent six months creating his masterpiece. Using chainsaws, sanders and rotary grinders, he carefully carved each element from cedar driftwood collected around the Gulf of Mexico. The sculpture, called A Matter Of Time, measures a massive 13ft by 13ft, dwarfing its creator, who says it’s been warmly received.

Been listening to this album for the past week and I have to say, it deserves all the praises its been getting. From track 1 until the end I have been hooked! Have a listen and I guarantee you will never regret it!
I remember the first time I listened to dub step, it was so weird, uncommon and creepy. I didn’t like it at first but as time went by, I started to really listening to it and then I got hooked. Dub step is the future, it is so original; it was so unfamiliar to my ears like something I have never heard before.
Dub step is originated in the United Kingdom in the late 90s in England. It is a genre of electronic dance, if you like music such as drum and bass, reggae or broken beat, you would most probably like dub step. Dub step where we are heading, a lot of people are unaware of this music genre, the music we are exposed to in the media, is so narrow minded, it all sounds the same. Dub step is really popular in Europe especially in the UK, but in South Africa is not that popular yet but I think we are getting there.
I have been listening to artists such as Synkro, Congi and Manchester based dub step artist Biome who is really popular in his own right as being one of the best when it comes to dub step. His music is really good and refreshing, it is very deep, it takes you to another world, you get lost on the music, and you feel it with every inch of your body. Dub step is being integrated with a lot of music we listen to today such as kwaito (yes, kwaito), reggae, rock and even hip hop like songs such as Wild for the night by A$ap Rocky featuring dub step artist Skrillex and one of my favorite songs by Skrillex is Make It Burn Dem featuring reggae artist Damien Marley, killa track I tell you.
So lets give Dub Step a chance, it is so unusual, yet so good!
