Well look what we have here, a little something different to add to the uniqueness of Sneak Peek - Memphis. I know it has been a while since you have seen one of these, a OG Nintendo NES (if you under 18, you probably don't have any idea what the hell this is). Before there was Nintendo Wii, before XBox and PS3, we had what we thought was the best thing since sliced bread. So far all we have is Mario Bros, Duck Hunt, and Track and Field but please believe more are to come. ALL CHALLENGERS PLEASE STEP FORWARD, TO GET BEAT DOWN. Well I gotta go brush up on my skills so Until next time PEACE.

Yezzy has done it again, this is rather old but I haven't seen it in too many places. Enjoy and Until next time PEACE
My imagination is inspired by so many things: Music, Art, Fashion, Food, Smell, etc. Every now and then I run across things that stick so deep in me that I can not forget them. Most of the time its not about how good they look but more about how different they were, what I was going through at the time I saw it, or what the first thing I thought when I saw it. You remember the old saying "A pictures is worth a thousand words", well I actually believe that. The photo of the week is meant to strike up conversation, make you think, make you mad, make you sad, make you smile, make you reminisce (I just went to dictionary.com to spell that), or make you imagine.I will always give my thoughts on the photo and I encourage all to feel free to leave comments, questions, or concerns about these photos and please understand that these are not meant to offend anyone in anyway. The photo will be updated every Sunday and will run through the following Saturday. I hope you all can enjoy. Until next time PEACE
This weeks photo: 08/10/2008 - 08/16/2008
Discovered By: Me
Photographed By: Unknown
Thoughts: I think the photo is self explanatory, though I am not a fan of photoshopped Artwork all the time this one stuck with me because of the colors used, the placement of all the elements, and it is great for getting a point across. If the photographer had left the actual skateboard, everyone would have focused on the board trying to find out who the manufacture was, and would have been paying attention to its detail and what it had and didn't have. Instead he lets the viewer know that the picture is about the shoes, but the shoes are for Sk8ers. Pure genius. This is done by showing the shadow of the board and sk8er on the floor.
School is right around the corner, too close if you ask me. That means new classes, new teachers, meeting new friends, and meeting with old friends (who really aren't your friends, but for the sake of being cool we will keep them). Old friend equals interagations about what we all did on our Summer Vacations (which if they were really friends they would have known because we would have kept in contact, didn't I say I wasn't gonna go there). Not to gloat or anything but this year I will by far have the best stories available. No I didn't backpack through Europe (one day though), no I didn't spend it partying on Thursday and Saturday at Fire & Ice with JoJo Entertainment and 207 Entertainment (though thats cool too, I plugged yall), no I didn't spend it working some non-paying internship only to realize that I could have actually worked for money and been able to afford the gas that I complain about the prices being to high on. No instead I spent the Summer investing in my future and the future of the city of Memphis. I along with the assistance of some other people took a old beat down apartment in Downtown Memphis and made it into the first true Sneaker Boutique in the city of Memphis, TN (yeah I said it the first, and if you think that place is a Sneaker Boutique, ummmm.......... well won't go there either). So here I introduce you all to Sneak Peek of Memphis which will be opening October 4, 2008. I WELCOME YOU ALL to come by and check us out, the photos below are just a teaser but offer a clear look as to just how different this store will be. Please visit our page often to meet the Sneak Peek family, for updates, new product, new stories, and other various things that I find interesting. I absolutely love the city of Memphis and the potential this city offers me as well as other people who know how to take advantage of opportunity. WE LOOK FORWARD TO BRINGING TRUE ORIGINAL, AUTHENTIC, and EXCLUSIVE URBAN FASHION TO THE CITY AND HOPE THAT YOU ALL ENJOY OUR STORE. Until next time PEACE.
