The rumors were true.
I remember seeing that Ultra offers various layout options for the header. I just can’t find that configuration setting right now.
Welp, Pulpconnection broke. While I rarely blog anymore with social media and Discord sucking up my attention in old age, it’s still a bummer that a WordPress incompatibility wiped out my customized theme. I had been using Canvas from WooThemes (now WooCommerce), and this theme served me well, providing the flexibility and layout options I wanted.
But Canvas is seemingly no more as WordPress advanced versions and gutted their publishing engine. So I had to leave Canvas behind and am in search for a new blog theme.
Right now, I’m testing out Ultra from Themify after reading several positive reviews (and having a subscription to Themify). Lots of learning ahead…
As Michelle Wie West winds down her competitive days with the LPGA, she’s wearing personalized Air Jordan 1 High “Waves” golf shoes in her last US Open. The design is kinda out there, but there are a lot of ties to Michelle’s life represented.
According to Michelle’s Instagram post, these shoes should have released on “Wednesday,” but no specific Wednesday was specified. Will have to keep watching for them.
Not even two weeks since I picked up the South Park aloha shirt from Reyn Spooner did they release another banger. This time, it’s small kid time memories with Ultraman. While I was more of a Kamen Rider and Kikaida fan, Ultraman as a design for an aloha shirt? It’s a must have.
But what shoes would I pair with this sagebrush reverse print? In some ways, the chutney colorway of the KITH x New Balance 998 Frank Lloyd Wright shares similar hues of red, greens, and tan.
But since I already have the apricot colorway, I don’t have this chutney variation. Based on color name similiarity alone, there’s the Joe Fresh Goods and New Balance 993 Performance Art.
But this sage color way is more green than blue/teal of the aloha shirt design. The Arctic Blue colorway is a closer match but still not quite right. The search for matching kicks continues…
Maybe the Salehe Bembury Water Be Thy Guide NB2002R?
Here’s the unfiltered view in bad lighting, followed by an IG filtered version.
I think the orange and green hues of the shoes pair nicely with the South Park crew.
So far, this post has the best one-day Disneyland itinerary, plans, and strategies that I can find for 2023.
Looking for ideas on spending one day at both Disneyland and California Adventure using a park hopper pass. Targeting the newest attractions such as Star Wars Galaxy Edge and the DCA Marvel campus. Also working in some favorites and opting for the Genie+ add-on to optimize rides.
Not sure to rope drop the Rise of the Resistance even though most say NOT to do that first thing. Although the lines and queues aren’t bad in the morning, the wait and actual ride take us so much valuable morning time that could be spent going on many other attractions. But then again, I wouldn’t mind trying Rise twice, once via standby and another time with the purchase of the Individual Lightning Lane premium.
Okay, technically this gift won’t make it for the 2022 holiday season, but come early 2023, the Finalmouse Centerpiece keyboard will finally be available. Maybe it’s all gimmicks, maybe there’s no real point, but dang, this keyboard with an underlying display surely looks impressive. Check it out.
Watch finalmouse.com for details on how to order the Centerpiece.
This one is just too good, so it has to start off a (limited) Pulpconnection Holiday Gift Guide for 2022! And the gift is the Toto Neorest 750H toilet. Yes.
Of course, you can expect that top Toto quality and technical engineering featuring dual flush, a washlet with oscillating and pulsing comfort washing, an air purifying system, an UV self cleaning system, and much more. But don’t take my word for it. This is the ultimate testimony when you need to “take a theory”… for $16,000 per toilet.
Bless up to DJ Khaled (and Drake) for motivating this Gift Guide kick off post!
Nike and Jordan Brand are taking us back to the beginning where it all fatefully began with the release of the Air Jordan 1 Chicago colorway.
This shoe is the one that birthed a new genre of sneakerheads with a young MJ redefining the shoe game on the hardcourt.
I’m pretty sure I picked up my unexpected pair at Arakawas in the heart of Waipahu. Yes, Arakawas by the sugar mill smokestack.
I don’t remember much about the store anymore except that it had lots of odds and ends and a weird store layout (I remember stairs to the second floor??), and amongst the oddities, I found the white pair of Air Jordan 1s. I’m pretty sure the cost was $60 or $65 which at time was a lot to pay for shoes. Fortunately, I got a pair though it might have been too big with not all sizes available.
So fast forward to November 19, 2022 with Nike timewarpping us back to 1985 with a re-imagined Air Jordan 1 that’s supposed to mimic the original shoe found in the depths of a storeroom, forgotten all these decades. And if Arakawas were still here today, I have no doubt this situation could actually happen.
While generally available to the public on November 19, Nike is giving long time members a chance at an early purchase:
Exclusive Access will provide some of our most dedicated SNKRS Members the opportunity to purchase the Air Jordan 1 ‘Chicago’. The offers will go out to a selection of Members who have entered and lost at least 20 different Air Jordan 1 High releases on SNKRS.
While nothing is guaranteed, I’m hoping my Nike membership since 2001 offers a slight advantage.
For a five-hour transcoastal flight, what kind of power source is this?
Yeah, it’s a regular US power outlet but with the ubiquity of USB ports, these standard outlets aren’t as useful (especially when I packed all power bricks in checked baggage).
Minus one point for United Air.
