Happy St. Patrick’s Day from Streetzblog.com

Hi and Happy St. Patrick’s Day from Honolulu Hawaii. Above is a picture of real Shamrocks-Photo taken last week in Glenview Illinois at Trader Joe’s. I remember finding 4 leaf clovers growing up and how good they tasted to eat right out of the ground. But for some reason, I don’t remember ever seeing real Shamrock’s, well here they are! Enjoy!

Did you know that 34.7 Million Americans claim Irish Ancestry, 2nd only to Germans.  And there’s 2.3 Billion pounds of cabbage grown in the U.S.A each year.

Above you can see one of my favorite pairs of kicks and I’ll be wearing these babies ALL day long on St. Pat’s Day! Hope they start to scuff a bit more so I can see the cool burnt orange colors underneath the Green Paint. Speaking of Green, it takes 40 pounds of dye to make the Chicago River Green each year on St. Pat’s Day.  Back in 1987, I tried to convince my boss at the radio station that I worked at to dye the Ala Wai Canal in Hawaii Green.  I thought it would have been a great stunt and would put our New radio station (92X) on the Map.  He didn’t go for it, instead we spent the money on TV advertising..Oh Well. I Tried.

Wow! Now that’s some GREEN water..eh?  Photo courtesy of inspiredwater.org  The NYC St. Patrick’s Day Parade started in 1762 and at the time it was the first SPD Parade anywhere!  Nowadays, 3 Million People attend the Parade each year-That’s about how many people live where I live on the island of Oahu!!! Next up, isn’t a picture of the parade, but Jeremy Lin Planking-figured it would be cool since there’s green in the picture and the Knicks just won two in a Row!

Have a Happy St. Patrick’s Day!  email me some photos of you having fun and I’ll post em’ on streetzblog.com and be watching @scottmackenzie3 for tons of really fun SPD photos from my Instagram account.  Cheers and Aloha! SM

Da Bulls take Lin to School

20120313-022628.jpg

I know,I know I’ve been helping to hype the Linsanity just as much if not more than anyone. But when you put me live at the United center just down from the center of the big city. My instincts and MJ memories remind me of who’s my main team. The D Rose dunk that you will see on ESPNs sports center exemplifies this feeling to a T and the feeling was totally excilleratting. Or as the announcers said

get up or get out the way!wheres my poster maker and too fast too strong too good!

You can get the stats and more of the game elsewhere. Here I’ll let you know about some fun things you can only get from the first hand experience of being there.
I saw many black red green and white Bulls jerseys. Mostly Rose then Jordan Boozer Pippin Noah Korver and some Knicks jerseys most of them Melos with a scattering of Lin jerseys and a bunch of Linsanity T’s. In regards to kicks there were lots of fake J’s the coolest were an aqua colored version of the 10s. There were also real J’s including cement 3s, white and black 4s and a pair of concords!
The weather was exceptionally warm and I did see a bunch of teens in shorts unheard of in most March winters in Chi Town.
Celebrities at the game included Charles Oakley, Scottie Pippin, the Bears-Chris Williams and Chicago Mayor-Rahm Emanuel.
The Rose dunk had the whole place going wild with a standing ovation, they dropped t shirt parachutes from the rafters,the crowd loved when Scalabrine came in The game and Rose was getting seriously pissed at Lin and the refs and thus went on a scoring tear to win the game.
On The streetz they had Rose not Hoes and White Mamba shirts, lots of really friendly happy people and a big Bennie the Bull van banging the jams! A very fun night indeed. Now I’m watching the replay on CSN. Then getting on a plane and will be back in the 808 by Tuesday night. LMK any street trends you notice in the meantime. TTUS

On The Streetz of the ATL-3/9/12

The photo above is a really cool looking building in mid-town Atlanta.  Supposedly it’s officially called the silhouette Building. I like to call it the “Man in Black” Building, since it looks like a guy in a nice black suit with a Fedora and white  Frenchcuffed shirt.   What do you see?  (Photo courtesy of streetzblog.com)  This is kinda’ Cool-Hawaii’s own Jake Shimabukoro is performing at the Ferst Center for the Arts in the ATL on March 31st.  If you’re looking for some cool tunes at completely free prices, check out City Cuts Barbershop-they have some awesome mix tapes over by the free newspapers-they also talk a mean B-Ball talk over there and can cut some hair like “totally unreal good”.  And down the street from the BB shop is the nationally acclaimed restaurant as seen on the Food Network-“Chicken and Waffles”.  You gotta’ try these babies-order the Midnight Train-4 HUGE chicken wings, a nice sweet waffle with syrup of course and don’t forget to wash it all down with a delicious nice and tasty “Sweet Tea”.  Pretty fun town, just a little spread out so it was hard to spot the street trends.  About all I noticed were a lot were gals wearing lots of buckles on their boots and I saw 4 pairs of Jordan White 4’s, so they do know What’s up in the shoe game.  Have a nice weekend.  I’ll be in Chicago this weekend.. hit me up on Twitter @scottmackenzie3 or friend us on Facebook/streetzblog.  I’ll have a great report from Chicago including seeing the Bulls vs Jeremy Lin, Carmelo and the New York Knicks playing this Monday Night. Until then have fun, Keep your Kicks clean and your eye on the streetz !

Jeremy Lin’s Kicks-3/4/12

Today was a pretty close game with the Knicks and the Celtics.  Boston barely edged out the Knicks in over-time. Melo had a pretty good game and Lin was on it and off it, they were playing him really tough. And he did have a couple of pretty clutch baskets down the stretch before over-time.  I noticed he was wearing Blue Nike’s with an orange swoosh. These look like them.  Photo courtesy of solecamp.com

London: The City With A Thousand Faces from Press Pause on Vimeo.

As you can tell by today’s Blog Title, you’re in for a little bit of this and little bit of that. Or take the easy route and check out the vid above-it’s a little longer than I would usually post, but if your’e in to street culture and what’s hot now on the Streetz, it’s a pretty fun video featuring the hip and happening youth in 2012. I can always go for a good English Accent or later in the vid a pretty wild French one too!

In other news: On the streetz of Honolulu-Taryn Manning-One of the stars of Hawaii 5-0, 8 Mile star, also from Hustle and Flow and FHM and Stuff cover model..whew! Will be DJ’ing at Rum Fire in Waikiki on Saturday March 3rd.

And with the NBA All Star game happening this Sunday, the NBA store just released their ever coveted, usually pretty limited edition St. Patricks Day Jerseys. They were a little hidden on their website so I figured I’d let you know that they are available now! They have Bulls, Knicks, and of course, Boston. I noticed Jersey’s for Rose, Carmello, Amare, and some Boston players, plus they have a J-Lin T, but so far no jersey. All St. Patricks Gear is in a nice Green with either orange or black tinges. I’ve been “thinking” about getting a St. Pat’s Jersey ever since Marberry played for the Knicks and everytime I get ready to buy them, all the good sizes are gone. So, if you want one, I’d buy it now or at least before March 1 comes around.

St. Pat's Carmelo Anthony Jersey available now at NBA.com

Jeremy Lin’s St. Pat’s Day T-Shirt. Available now at NBA.com

I sure bet the LIN T Goes quickly, even though it’s not as nice as a Jersey, Do you see what number he is?  Yep, same as St. Patrick’s Day-March 17

The Longest List of Lin’ism’s-2/19/12

FIRST: “NO Win Ski for Nowinski due to Jeremy LIN-Ski”

Today was the second time I was able to see Lin and the Knicks on TV, last time they beat the Lakers, today they beat last year’s champs-the Dallas Mavericks. Jeremy Lin had 28 points, 14 assists and 5 steals.  Those are the ESPN type stats, the fan stats go something like this:  Lin had 2 big bombing 3’s up against Nowinski and another against Marion, he had some incredible hustle plays, and some killer drives through the paint! I personally loved it when after Lin hit a big Three and the announcer said “In your Face”-A real Classic line from when I played in the 80’s!  His team-mates were also feeling it today, Chandler was reliable as usual, Steve Novak came in with about 14 points and JR Smith in his first game as a Knick had a bunch of 3’s!  Tomorrow Melo comes back to the team-The Knicks should keep on Lin-ning all the way through the play-offs.  And it’s all so much fun to watch!  YAH!
