The T.Way "We Run" College Series tees must have caught the attention of the major universities because lately I've received phone calls and e-mails about licensing agreements, royalty fees, etc. They were coming at me as if THEY were the poor college student. I guess my tuition that I pay THEM isn't enough and now I need to pay them more of my hard-earned money??? If they want to chase me down to make sure I'm going through licensed manufacturers and am paying royalty fees, etc., then I guess they should send out all their dogs on me. Instead of assisting or helping their own students, they seem to be coming down to nickel-and-dime them as much as possible. I understand they are protecting their 'brand' and I completely am OK with that, but honestly, they'd probably make more money collecting and returning cans, haha. It is what it is, and these schools will receive my few dollars of royalty fees. I just wish I could follow those fees to see where they really go. I am skeptical that the students would see their use. (I could be very wrong about all of this, but these are just my 'current' feelings on the subject, ha)

For those great supporters who have pre-ordered their T.Way "WE RUN" College Series tees, I will be sending you an e-mail sometime this up-coming week to update you completely. For you others that have continued to delay, I would do so no longer. Pre-orders will only be accepted for a few more days. And remember, for those that pre-order will receive a FREE T.Way Gift and maybe other cool opportunities to win other FREE T.Way gifts. This is like Christmas!!! Hahaa

I have to admit, this road bicycle project took up way more time and money than I ever expected, but am happy it's finally completed (after about 3 months - aka the whole summer, ha). And yes, it works. I just wish I had done it months ago so I could have been riding and actually getting into shape like I said I would. We'll see if that ever happens.The bike frame was inspired by a couple pair of sneakers in my collection: the Nike Marty McFly "Back to the Future" Hyperdunks and the Air Jordan 2.5. This is how the bike started out: an old, vintage Raleigh road bicycle that I ripped apart (which would prove a major issue when attempting to put it all back together, but that's another story). It is difficult to tell from the photo below, but this bike had some bad spots of rust and obvious wear-and-tear. This was one of my most unique projects I have ever done and also one of the most educational...bikes can be complicated when you don't know what goes where and why.

Just released was LeBron's latest signature sneaker, the LeBron VII. These shoes have received the most positive buzz from any LeBron shoe to date and deserve such. Although they do not seem completely original but rather seem to be a super-hybrid of numerous previous sneakers, they still successfully convey a great performing basketball shoe with some high-end appeal. Selling for $160 they better be high-end performance masters. What are your thoughts: the best LeBron shoe yet or just another basketball shoe on the wall at FootLocker?
