There once was a young boy with a very bad temper. The boy’s father wanted to teach him a lesson, so he gave him a bag of nails and told him that every time he lost his temper he must hammer a nail into their wooden fence.
On the first day of this lesson, the little boy had driven 37 nails into the fence. He was really mad!
Over the course of the next few weeks, the little boy began to control his temper, so the number of nails that were hammered into the fence dramatically decreased.
It wasn’t long before the little boy discovered it was easier to hold his temper than to drive those nails into the fence.
Then, the day finally came when the little boy didn’t lose his temper even once, and he became so proud of himself, he couldn’t wait to tell his father.
Pleased, his father suggested that he now pull out one nail for each day that he could hold his temper.
Several weeks went by and the day finally came when the young boy was able to tell his father that all the nails were gone.
Very gently, the father took his son by the hand and led him to the fence.
“You have done very well, my son,” he smiled, “but look at the holes in the fence. The fence will never be the same.”
The little boy listened carefully as his father continued to speak.
“When you say things in anger, they leave permanent scars just like these. And no matter how many times you say you’re sorry, the wounds will still be there.”
The meanings behind this is so profound. So true and so real. Things you do or say can’t be taken back, at least not completely. There will always be scars, physically or mentally or both. Parenting done right.
SPREAD THE DAMN WORD
BAPE X COMME DE GARCONS
Bape has matured so much in the fashion industry. From streetwear to tailor fit suits. I remember when I first got introduced to Bathing Ape with their spunky hiphop style, to being indorsed by so many celebrities and now to their Comme de Garcons collaboration.
This collaboration is the best from both worlds, the spunky style of Bape with the clean sheik style of Comme de Garcon. I love these two brands, and I think this going to be an impressive collaboration.
Recently, I’ve been blog jumping and seen some of the Bape x Comme de Garcons shirts that they apparently released and these shirts look pretty awesome. However, I stumbled upon this website called HIGHSNOBIETY, and they have released this statement:
"We just got word from the Bape Marketing department that the t-shirts shown here are actually fake. Sorry for the confusion guys and congrats to who ever did it, they came out pretty good. Hopefully we can soon show you the real collaboration between the two brands. The official collection by the two brands will be revealed on March 8th, 2012, and seems to be exclusive to the new Dover Street Market Ginza. For now only the above mashed logo design is official."
I am glad that I saw this statement regarding this collaboration. SIGH! I was going to buy one of the shirts. My advise for all the fashion forward people is be careful in where you buy your things and DON’T BUY FAKES!

Attention: Jordan Junkies
Bourgeoisie Jordan Junkies, you better be saving up your pennies. O. G. Air Jordan IV returned for the 23rd anniversary. I AM SO EXCITED! This will be the succeeding release of the retro of the white/cement grey, since the original concept from the popularized “His Airness” back in 1989 by Spike Lee, Do the Right Thing. These Jordan’s have been retroed once since 1999, just one year since MJ’s retirement.
A bold red tongue highlights Jordan’s signature look with cement grey and black accents throughout. Wouldn’t that look good on your foot? Daaaayyyuuumm! It would! These release dates are sometime in February, so stay tuned.
Attention: Sneaker Heads
You should be excited for this spring because there are some crazy $*!% coming out. This everlasting Air Max 1 is coming back early this spring. Nike has just released Air Max 1 “Black/ Reflective” for the Sportswear for Spring Collection. Being born in the 80s and remembering Nike was the first shoe to a visible airbag, and now for comeback with new color scheme. Coming back with the classic black look, adding the charcoal and reflective 3M along the mid-foot panel and at the heel as well, should make all the sneaker heads drool, and all the runners ecstatic for their nighttime runs to that nearby 7-11. Keep an eye these ones. Maybe TUB might order these ones. Stay tuned for more sneakers coming out…
