Stranger Day – Bar Stool Bounce [EP]

June 27th, 2011 by Staff

stranger_day_bar_stool_bounce_655.jpg

Charlotte, NC’s Stranger Day announces his latest moonshine-laced effort, Bar Stool Bounce. One listen to BSB’s first track Not Playin’ affirms why he is known for shutting down bars and clubs all over the Southeastern US. “It’s theme of the record,” explains Stranger Day. “I don’t buy into labels [ie hipster hip-hop, underground, etc]. I make music on my terms and am not trying to fit into some category.” Not Playin’ has been featured as a free download on fuse.tv for a month, the video premiered on MTVU, was featured on AOL music and was recently added to the national in-store programming for Harley Davidson dealerships.

A distinctive blend of southern swagger and classic rock guitar makes the BSB EP the perfect soundtrack for your summer house party.

Repping for Life

June 27th, 2011 by Larry

Our Charleston-based friends KJ and Matt came to Atlanta to spend the weekend doing some low key activities that included a visit to our studio, lemon pepper wings at The Local, and watching the Gold Cup Final between USA and Mexico.

I’m not sure if it was the exhilaration from witnessing the USA’s first 2 goals, or the libation-fueled disappointment from seeing Mexico score 4 straight spirit-crushing goals, but the night air promised something more. The USMNT may have been down and out, but our night was not over! Things took a drastic turn when our homies from SC made the spontaneous decision to get tattooed with the We Are the Process “Tommys” logo.

Do you have ink inspired by We Are the Process brand? If so, send in the proof and we’ll compile a post with all your photos. Just hit that nifty, new contact button in the left sidebar or email us at info [at] wearetheprocess.com.

Childhood Flashback: Baseball Card Collecting

June 27th, 2011 by Larry

I can’t put my finger on that specific point in time, but there was a point where playing 8-bit Nintendo games, listening to 90′s alt rock, & watching reruns of Saved by the Bell became desirable, and ironically cool activities again. I’ve recently fallen back in love with baseball, and that obsession has led me back to card collecting. When I’m at the store these days, I look for a display and grab a few packs of Topps 2011 baseball cards. The last time I opened a pack of baseball cards, prior to this year, was probably 1992.

Topps, who are celebrating their 60th Diamond Anniversary, have made card collecting fun for people nostalgic of the past, as well as any casual fans of present-day baseball. Like most people, going into this season I knew a few players that are considered stars of the game. I also had a some prior knowledge about most of the Atlanta Braves, and my hometown Texas Rangers.

I think Topps realized there has been a significant gap between the baseball fans of yesteryear, where a large percentage of fans were into card collecting, and today’s more casual baseball fans. Topps’ 2011 collection does a great job at rekindling the nostaligia.

After the jump, I’ll highlight some of my favoirte things that Topps is doing this year. Read the rest of this entry »

Victory Sandwich Bar

June 24th, 2011 by Larry

The Beast on Yeast

Whenever my friend KJ comes to Atlanta, I always want to show him something interesting. Much like our usual exploits in KJ’s city of Charleston, SC, the primary focus involves indulging in food and drink!

I’d received many word-of-mouth recommendations to check out Victory Sandwich Bar (@vicsandwichbar on Twitter) in Inman Park over the past few months and I couldn’t wait to drag KJ along with me to check out this hybrid pub/restaurant. Victory is open from 11am – 2am daily as full service bar that takes pride in preparing food. At $4 per sandwich, it becomes difficult to resist ordering 2 or more items off the menu.

Upon approaching Victory’s spacious patio, we were greeted with a few familiar faces on the wait staff. If you frequent the nightlife in East Atlanta, you might recognize those faces I’m referring to. We decided to roll the dice, and asked the staff prepare an assortment of 6 sandwiches for the two of us to try. My personal favorite was the Beast on Yeast: A helping of pot roast on a yeast bun with horseradish crème. #jam

Whether you’re having a panini or bocadillo, rest assured it’s going to be good as Victory prepares their sandwiches on breads provided by the hired-guns & breadmasters at Bakeshop.

There’s a ping-pong table in the back of the pub, and a punching bag across from the bar; perfect ways to expend energy after consuming Victory’s very-alcoholic Jack & Coke Slushie. Can I holler at a to-go cup? Read the rest of this entry »

Nike5 Streetgato [Black/Volt]

June 24th, 2011 by Larry

nike_streetgato_black_volt.jpg

The Nike5 Streetgato is an indoor soccer shoe that performs well on the pitch and is capable of coupling with your favorite pair of jeans. Its low profile design is consistent with many of Nike’s indoor soccer boots and is sure to look good however you decide to rock ‘em. Serious ballers & hipsters can pick them up for a cool $75 at Nike Store. By the way, I’m currently loving the use of Volt in many of Nike’s offerings.

Atlanta Hawks, SOLD?!?

June 23rd, 2011 by Larry

Earlier today, Ian Thomsen from SI.com reported that the Atlanta Hawks are on the verge of being sold.

“One of the sources confirmed that the sale is about to be consummated, but declined to identify the buyer.

The news was expected to come as a surprise to team officials of the Hawks, who were not aware a sale was imminent as they prepared for the NBA draft. SI.com learned of the sale hours before the draft, though the news is not expected to influence the Hawks’ decision-making during the draft.”

This doesn’t sound very promising. This shows that there is little communication between the EVIL Atlanta Spirit Group and the team’s officials. I just hope the isn’t sold to another ownership group that can’t agree on any decisions.

The Atlanta Spirit issued a statement saying “we have spoken with a number of parties, but at this time, there is no deal in place, nor is there an exclusive negotiating agreement in place.” Hawks spokesman Arthur Triche said Thursday the team had no further comment.”

This is the same kind of statement they made before they sold the Thrashers. This is merely to buy time before breaking any real news. Typical PR move here…

“The Hawks ownership group last month sold the Atlanta Thrashers to a group that will relocate the franchise to Winnipeg next season. The Hawks owners have spent the last two to three years seeking minority investors in the NBA team.”

What do you think? I feel that the franchise can only succeed more if the team is sold (hopefully to an owner with a drastically different philosophy on running a team). I can’t wait for a sale to happen, but I’m also expecting a catastrophic mismanagement of the team’s personnel & image in the process.
