A Closer Look At Adidas Originals Tubular

adidas-originals-tubular-2

Borrowing elements from some of adidas‘ most successful designs such as the sole unit from the Qasa by their Y-3 imprint developed alongside Yohji Yamamoto and details such as ghuilley lacing system and overlayed heel counter that were a signature from adidas’ ZX and EQT lines, the Tubular breathes new life into the three stripes.

Decked out in decals such as trefoil branding and tonal leather panels, the tubular is constructed with mesh uppers and a neoprene tongue and sock liner, finished with the branded pull to the tongue and the head-turning Tubular rubber sole unit. Here is a closer look at the adidas Originals Tubular.

Screening: Nov. 20, 7:30pm

Venue: SVA Theatre (New York, NY)

Section: Centerstage (NYC Premiere)

Who is Michael White? Easy. He’s the most famous person you’ve never heard of.

From Oh! Calcutta! (1972) and The Rocky Horror Picture Show (1975) to Monty Python and the Holy Grail (1975), producer Michael White has helped bring enduring cultural touchstones to Broadway, London’s West End, and the silver screen for over 40 years. Thanks to a chance meeting in Cannes, filmmaker Gracie Otto corrects White’s obscure standing in this buoyant film profile.

BayFest, Mobile Alabama: 3 Days of Music Right In The Heart of The City

by Leslie Long

BayFest 2014

I love music, but not music festivals. Shuttle buses, parking fields, hot sun, long lines, expensive tickets. Not so with BayFest, a unique festival that takes place right within the city limits of downtown Mobile. And with seven stages all within easy walking distance of one another, the set up couldn’t be better.

BayFest features a unique mix of classic rock, jazz, country, alternative, R&B, rap, gospel, modern rock and more — all in one place. This year’s event took place between October 3rd and 5th and it’s always right around that time of year. Three-day all-festival passes cost less than a typical concert ticket.

BayFest 2014

As the sun starts to set, orderly groups flow through the checkpoints, starting to travel from stage to stage. Even when the crowds were huge —as the nightly line ups move from local favorites to national stars, the audience keeps on growing — it was easy to stake out a spot to see and hear, no matter when in the set I arrived. And with screens on either side of the stage, the small details were always in clear view.
