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.

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.

In keeping with the damp cold rain that is currently falling through clouds, I thought about the aspects of winter. When we hibernate and fall deep into our head and do excessive planning, action and interior projects. Now that I’m back on the East Coast I realize that the diverse weather was definitely something I took for granted in my youth. I now take comfort in the freezing rain soaked streets and my eyes peering up over my thick scarf biting the cold air from my face.
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.
