“Right folks, time to show and prove. As part of Nike’s ‘Festival Of Air 2006’ celebrations at Oxford Street’s NikeTown, Crooked Tongues and Nike have collaborated for one very special evening to offer you the chance to display your Air bubbled treasures, whether they’re new or vintage, pedigree or mongrel to determine the overall Best In Show.

Total, Tuned, Zoom, Max, visible or out of sight – whatever the Air unit and regardless of age, we want to see it shown on the 31st of August. The aim? To celebrate all things Air, from the obvious to the obscure, and display one of the most impressive collections of Nike Air the UK has ever seen, as we host host one of the biggest sneaker-related events to occur on these shores. You’ll be the judges on the night and as per usual, especially seeing as there’s a distinct lack of CT BBQ this year, there’ll be the Crooked party atmosphere you’ve come to expect, with VIP treatment for all show entrants, so break out the wipes, dig in the crates and get those puppies ready for their big day.

Naturally, there are plenty of other titles up for grabs and the prizes range from much-sought after Nike iD studio action on the night to some serious heat for the overall gold, silver and bronze winners. Forget any fear of ‘cliques’ cleaning up – if you’ve got a shoe you’re proud of, whether it’s one pair or ten, then it’s your duty as a CT member to take part. And as for those corny competitions orchestrated in the US, round these parts we don’t play that, so our tongues are firmly in our cheeks, even though the shoes and ensuing rewards are deadly serious.

Check out Crooked over the next few days for further details on what’s shaping up to be one of the sneaker events of the year.” Crooked Tongues

Sounds bloody good to us!

Design Janet Jacksons New Album Cover

19 07 2006

The cover of Janet Jackson’s new album, 20 Years Old, due out September 26, will be designed by a fan. On July 18, Janet launched a contest giving fans an opportunity to create the artwork for her ninth studio set.

The Design Me contest requires participants to download images of Janet, create proposed album covers, and to post the creations on the contest page. Contestants will vote for their favorite submissions, and Janet will select her top four favorites, which will be used for the first one million copies of the album.

Janet and her beau Jermaine Dupri, President Virgin Records, Urban Music, came up with the idea for the promotion. “We were going on the website and looking at all this creative stuff the kids were doing, and it amazed us,” Janet says. “They were taking old pictures and they were just very creative with all the designs. We said, ‘Let’s have these kids design our album cover.'”

Janet hand-picked dozens of images, new and old, to be used in the contest. “They told me that I should pick maybe 20, 30 photos, but I think I went a little crazy,” Janet says. “I picked way more than that. I gave them some of the new stuff I just shot for the album cover shoot. So they have some really recent photos as well as some stuff from 20 years ago.”

Janet does not give participants any parameters for their designs. She wants them to be uninhibited and to “go for it.”

“That’s what it’s really about,” Janet says, “for them to manipulate it and get creative, and go wherever their images takes them.”
