Suspended Operations. We’ll Be Back Summer 2010. Be Ready.

Due to unforeseen circumstances and personal issues that will not be disclosed at this time, The Word Unblunt and all of its blog operations (The Lifestyle Project, Hype Bytes, and All The Plaid Memories) will suspend operations until the summer of 2010. Chillan Space will be the only blog that will continue to be updated, for those who know who I am. I want to thank all of you for the love and support you’ve sent over to me for the past couple months. I’ve honestly had an amazing time. I want to first of all thank all of my friends for helping me, supporting me, and just showing me love and giving me advice when I needed it. I want to thank the Canadian streetwear scene for the feedback, love, and advice that you’ve sent my way as well. Much respects to the people in the industry that I’ve had a chance to communicate with. I want to send love over to the music acts Homebased and F.E.L.N. for all the support and love. I also want to shout out to Tthomas of Tragic Glory, Mr. Taylor Swan of Vice & Virtue, and Shun Kinoshita of Gold And A Pager for the love you’ve shown me too. It all means a lot. I still owe some blogposts to some of you including the boys down at Concrete Guerilla, Tragic Glory and some of the music acts I mentioned earlier. Stay true to what you do until 2010, and I’ll pick you guys up then. I’m sincerely sorry about that. It has been a tough decision, but believe me, when summer 2010 comes around I’m gonna pick this thing back up and deliver. I sincerely ask you guys continue the support by staying in the facebook groups for The Lifestyle Project and The Word Unblunt, and get ready for something special for summer 2010.

Flight Club Halloween Releases

Flight Club have just released a mini-collection of t-shirts, longsleeves, and a few crewnecks. The graphics that compose each of these items is simple yet make for very nice looking products. To view the rest of the collection or to purchase, please click here. Get ready for Halloween!

Gravis Indo Expedition Pack

Know for their designs revolving around active lifestyles, the Gravis “Indo” Expedition pack is the latest from the brand as they pair concepts of retro outdoor footwear on a runner’s last. Despite the number of colors making an appearance on this shoe, they all work together quite well providing a pleasing colorway with other nice touches including colored 3M, speckled soles and the proprietary Cloud9 cushioning system. To round out the collection are some matching bags. While the use of gray on the footwear balanced out the overall colorway, the bags are a bit flashier combining the brightest elements seen on the shoes.

Congrats to Philly, 80 and 08

Congratulations to the Phillies for their second World Series Championship in their entire history. A 4-3 win over Tampa, Price couldn't do anything about it. Congrats Phillies, you earned 2008.

I kinda wanted Tampa to win, but the Phillies are cool and deserve much respect. 80 and 08 Champs. Funny how Eric Hinske was the final out.
