From Bangkok’s abandoned taxis, a surreal garden sprouts

In long rows they sit idle, mothballed taxis awaiting the day that travelers return and need to get around Bangkok again.After a year and a half of heavy losses and debt for drivers, about 300 unused cabs packing a lot in the capital’s Ratchapruek area have been given a new purpose: rooftop gardens.From chilis and basil to spring onions, the vegetables are being grown on the taxis’ hoods and roofs at the Ratchapruek Taxi Cooperative. It said upward of 2,000 drivers have returned their vehicles because they were unable to pay their lease fees.Taxi drivers, who run on thin margins in the best of times, have been devastated by the pandemic. “You’re the second customer today,” a driver who only identified himself as Sompol told a reporter yesterday in the Phrom Phong area. Sompo [...]

The Buzzy Story Behind the Air Jordan 1 "Pollen"

Jordan Brand is set to release its Air Jordan 1 “Pollen” this week, and although the black and yellow “Pollen” colorblocking is indeed new to the Air Jordan 1, it has a rich history in the greater Nike sphere. This history dates all the way back to 1985, the year both the Air Jordan 1 and the Dunk made their debut.When the Dunk first made its way to market in 1985 as part of the “Be True to Your School” pack, one of the eight colorways it released in was a black and yellow makeup, crafted for the Iowa Hawkeyes. This two-tone color scheme returned in 1999 as part of a “Be True To Your School” retro, and also hit stores in 2020 as the Dunk High “Varsity Maize.” The parallel between Air Jordan 1 and Dunk is no new phenomenon. Michael Jordan‘s first signature sneaker and [...]

Gold medalist pays solemn respect to her father as she makes her triumphant return to Thailand

Gold medalist pays solemn respect to her father as she makes her triumphant return to Thailand

Giannis Antetokounmpo Got a New Watch to Go With His Finals MVP Trophy

Giannis Antetokounmpo Got a New Watch to Go With His Finals MVP Trophy

Over the course of the NBA season, we witnessed Giannis Antetokounmpo take huge strides. Perhaps the most amazing leap of all: from two-time MVP to… legit watch collector. Before this season, Antetokounmpo wore only one watch: the Oyster Perpetual, Rolex’s baseline model. That all changed in the offseason, when he signed his mammoth $228 million extension with the Milwaukee Bucks while wearing an Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Offshore. Over the course of the season, he assembled even more precious timepieces, including the beloved “Panda”-dial Rolex Daytona, what looks like a blue-bezel Rolex Submariner, and even a blinged-out Rolex “Rainbow”. This is huge progress from a guy who once loaded up on free water bottles! While we certainly wouldn’t have said boo if Antetokounmpo had [...]
