There are so many things that are arriving; spring, my birthday, and the beginning of new projects and directions. It seems the best to describe this new crop of much needed visual inspiration.

Shoe Revival: Adidas Gazelle

tumblr_n19cj7zhkK1s8ut4zo1_500Ok, most of you know that I’m a sucker for shoes. Specifically sneakers. Instead of looking for new styles I seem to go back to the classics that always seem to live on or get a revamp these days.

This brings me to the Adidas Gazelle. Man, what a classic and dope shoe. These shoes remind me of this guy in my 5th grade class who always wore his to the ground. I for one chose to get shelltops but now I’m jonesin for a fresh pair of gazelles. I gathered some photos from across the web showing the contemporary and flashback style from the 90s.

Movie Files: Disturbing Behavior

Disturbing+Behavior+19

Back in those crazy times that we remember as the 90s there were unlimited amazing movies that just flew under the radar.  One of my personal favorites from ’98 that I still actually have on VHS is Disturbing Behavior. James Marsden plays a teen who just moves to a small town in the Pacific Northwest with his family and at his new high school he discovers something is up with the kids at the high school. Without spoiling it too much Katie Holmes (who has super awesome style) and Nick Stahl are his awesome and grunge-styled friends throughout and lets just say this redefines the cult thriller late 90s genre.

Movie Crush: Highway

_183

I know you’ve missed me but not to worry, I’m back. I’ve made the move back to my home coast and things have really changed as expected. The one thing that gives me solace is my collection of films and music still kept in my old room. It sounds strange but it’s good to know that I can travel back into my old psyche and remember why I loved them so much.

Highway, released in 2002 is seriously a cult fave of mine. The film, starring Jake Gyllenhaal and Jared Leto in a roadtrip to Seattle for a Kurt Cobain vigil couldn’t get any better if I wrote the script myself. Even though it was filmed in the early 00s, it takes place in ’94 which gives it perfect grounds for a review here on FG. In the midst of this monumental trip on the road they meet Selma Blair and a list of zany characters. Without giving too much away, these two best friends are on the run in a hyper state of reality to one of the cities that inspired the music I love so dear. Must see.

90s Crush : Jason Lee

9ee5926479601900f373ae6458804925

I first fell in love with Jason Lee in the film Mallrats. It’s crazy that I actually remember watching it for the first time in my best friends living room. I think from that moment on we started prefacing everything with “true story”. Jason Lee started out as a pro skateboarder in early 90s famously starring in Spike Jonze’s classic skate film, Video Days for Blind Skateboards. He began landing movie roles and soon left the full time skate world for Hollywood. He’s been a great influence and is making such an impact in both worlds.

Disturbing Behavior (1998) 

Apart from music being the most important thing in my life, the vast area of 90s films run a close second. When I think about some of my favorites, I find that still frames from each film pop into my head. In a departure from the usual Sunday inspiration posts, I’ve gathered a selection still frames from some of the movies that helped shape my adolescence.

Movie Crush: The Rules of Attraction

rules of attraction

Now I know I’m breaking the cardinal rule of the site by discussing pop culture after the 90s but what the hell. The Rules of Attraction which came out in 2002 could have easily been released in the 90s. I remember seeing this when I was in college with a whole group of friends. I can safely say that I was incredibly obsessed and ran out to get the book (by Bret Easton Ellis) just a week later.

Shannyn Sossamon, who is one of the standouts of the film is my personal style icon from almost any film. From her asymmetrical haircut, tomboyish attitude, and skateboard girl cool factor she’s pretty much perfect. Also, can’t help but to give James Van Der Beek an honorable mention for his role as sketchy and deviant charater, Sean. Who is a far cry from his standard 90s role of “Dawson Leery” from “Dawson’s Creek”. It’s also impossible to forget Ian Somerhalder as Paul and Victor’s whirlwind trip through Europe.
