1000 musicians play Learn to Fly by Foo Fighters to ask the Foo Fighters to come and play in Cesena, Italy.

“The Foo Fighters are not in Romagna since 1997, it’s time to get them back, but we need a crazy idea,” the description on Rockin’ 1000’s website explains. “We have to organize something that kicks ass worldwide and can be seen by Dave Grohl: We will ask one thousand rockers to play one of their songs, all together and at the same time.”

And they did it — magnificently, after more than a year of work. “What we did here is a huge, huge miracle,” the event’s creator Fabio Zaffagnini explained. “One thousand rockers that came from all over the nation at their own expense, and they just did one song — your song. We ask you, the Foo Fighters, to come play for us.”

Update: Well done 1k Cesena rockers! The ‪#‎FooFighters‬ have just taken to Twitter to tell Cesena "see you soon".

Why you need to mind your water even during the colder months

The rainy season is upon us once more. As temperatures drop, people also start to switch habits with the changing season. We trade our sleeveless tops for more comfortable pullovers and we acquire a taste for hot beverages to chase away the cold weather. Despite the shifting of the weather, however, one thing remains essential for all of us still—keeping hydrated.

“A lot of people think that we only need to keep properly hydrated during the hot summer months,” says Ms. Janeth Leus, Pocari Sweat’s brand manager. “They think they can go easy because they don’t sweat as much.”

This, unfortunately, is a big misconception. “Dehydration doesn’t choose a season. Even if we are not perspiring too much, we still lose water,” Ms. Leus adds.

In fact, the body fights dehydration 24 hours a day, even when we are sleeping. We lose body fluid from our skin and through our breaths so we are always fighting dehydration regardless of the weather or our physical activity.

People lose about 2.5 litres of body fluid on an average day while more active individuals lose much more. The onset of dehydration symptoms such as fatigue will occur once the body loses about 3% of its water. Headache and dizziness can start at a 4-5% fluid loss. Finally, it can be fatal once the body loses 10% of its body fluid.

“Proper rehydration is key. And when we say proper, we mean drinking the right fluids to replenish your lost water,” explains Ms. Leus.

In addition to water, the body fluid we lose also contains other electrolytes like sodium, potassium, and other ions. Quick and efficient hydration requires fluids that also contain these essential minerals.
Pocari Sweat, a refreshing and healthy drink, is one good example. Its composition contains the same electrolytes present in our body fluid so it rehydrates the body quickly and effectively. It is important to quickly replenish lost water to keep the balance between body fluid intake and loss.
Additionally, keeping hydrated also helps ward off common ailments like colds and flu during the rainy season. Drinking water helps hydrate the body and cleanses away germs and bacteria. When paired with a healthy diet and exercise, it can help the immune system combat virus and other illnesses.

Pocari Sweat’s composition is closest to that of body fluid so that it better flows through the body. By providing the right amount and combination of minerals needed by our system, individuals can perform better both physically and mentally.

Ms. Leus shares, “It doesn’t matter what season we are in. Proper hydration is a consistent requirement to keep us in good health. That is why we should always make sure to get our fill.”
POCARI SWEAT LUNAR DREAM PROJECT

With the recent discovery made that water exists in the moon, POCARI SWEAT is taking off for the lunar surface with POCARI SWEAT in powder form. We will wait expectantly—from over 380,000 kilometers away—for the day when people touch down on the lunar surface and drink POCARI SWEAT made with the moon's own water.

POCARI SWEAT is launching the Lunar Dream Project in Summer 2016. POCARI SWEAT will create the DREAM RING as a key to open the capsule that will fly to the moon with your dreams. When you touch down on the moon someday, use your DREAM RING to open the capsule to reencounter your dreams from today. We will be overjoyed if you celebrated this by drinking the included POCARI SWEAT powder by mixing it with the moon’s own water.

The goal of this project doesn’t end when the DREAM CAPSULE lands on the moon. Rather, it will signal the beginning of a new space age and inspire children to dream of space. As part of its Lunar Dream Project, POCARI SWEAT Philippines will invite 20 CLASS A Primary Schools (Elementary) from Metro Manila, Pampanga, Bulacan, Batangas and Laguna for the Moon/Solar System Exhibit Competition and School Caravan that will run from September 2015 – November 2015.


The sneaker shop that brought us the Nike SB “Lobster”, “Ugly Sweater”, “Holy Grail”, “When Pigs Fly” and the "Stained Glass" is ready to create another chapter in its booming history of proper collaborations.

The upcoming Nike SB X Concepts looks fresh in its metallic silver, white, gray, blue and red color blocking. The interior of the shoe" is made from a premium material that's (Gucci inspired) diamond quilted. It also features a dual-colored puffy tongue (red and blue), a white midsole, and a transluscent outsole.

More details to follow on these in-store exclusive dunk sbs , so get a look and stay tuned for its official release date and pricing info.


#Dunksnotdead as the Nike Dunk “Be True to Your School” series is back…in a way. We’re going to get at least a new version of the classic color block, and it’s the black and gold “Iowa” colorway on the Dunk SB Low.

Reviving the original "Iowa" look, Nike SB created the colorway on the Dunk Low in a black suede base with University Gold suede overlays. One added touch this time around: a carbon fiber hit on the heel.


Could this be the first of more "Be True To Your School" colorways we see return? Skate Shoes PH will be eagerly waiting to see. Watch for this Nike SB Dunk style to show up at global SB accounts later this summer.





With word of the Air Jordan 1 "Rare Air" set to release this year, the original pair has surfaced online.

A student at the University of North Carolina Wilmington is mutual friends with one of Michael Jordan's best friends, who owned a pair of MJ's original game-worn "Rare Air" Jordan 1.

Franco claims that the pair was worn during Michael's rookie season which dates back to 1984-85. While it's unknown which exact game Michael wore them in, the shoe was signed and gifted to him with inscriptions on the left medial collar reading:

"My Very Best - Michael Jordan."

It continues on the right medial side of the shoe reading:

"My very best - To brother DB - love always Michael Jordan #23."

Stay with us for a Jordan release date on the retro "Rare Air" Jordan 1 and enjoy these rare photos of an ultra rare original pair in the meantime.





Nike has pulled the wraps off their latest iteration of the Dunk High using  a “Green Glow” concept. This Dunk is very similar to the recently released “Red October” and features a full on Glow in the Dark Sole.

Green suede base upper with mesh hitting the toe box and side panels, as well as a spiked design around the heel. The shoe is completed with a glow in the dark soles.

Check out the detailed photos of the Nike Dunk High CMFT Premium QS “Green Glow” below and find them available now through select Nike Sportswear retailers like Kicks USA.




A little love from J. Leigh.

Following the release of the Air Jordan 1 “NYC” last year, Jordan Brand is now set to release their latest west coast Air Jordan 1 “Los Angeles” edition.

This “Los Angeles” version of the Air Jordan 1 is fully dressed in an all-White leather base, with tonal branding throughout, ’23’ and ‘LA’ on each of the heels, a full icy translucent outsole with words reading “Los Angeles” a Jumpman logo and a map of the city.

As of right now there is no exact release date set, but a release is set to take place at Flight 23 California in the near future.
