Jack Erwin Cooper Boat Shoe Review

Those who have read my review of Jack Erwin’s Carter wingtip boot remember that I was pleased with the quality of their shoes and the positioning of their company as a disruptor to the overpriced, premium-shoe market.

But despite having a decent collection of oxfords, brogues, and loafers, Jack Erwin hasn’t hasn’t offered any boat shoes until now. I was able to acquire a brand new pair, so read my Jack Erwin Cooper boat shoe review below!

ALSO: Video review added – see below!

Watch: Seiko’s Tiny Rube Goldberg Machine

As I’ve stated many times here before, my favorite watch ever is a Seiko 5 Sports automatic. It looks cool, is extremely affordable, and has a beautiful automatic movement. For total value and bang for your buck, Seiko is always the first brand I recommend.

Seiko just came out with a cool new video, “Art of Time,” featuring a miniature Rube Goldberg machine made out of over 1,200 tiny individual watch parts.

Rube Goldberg is most well know for coming up with zany, endlessly complex machines that use a series of increasingly complicated chain reactions to accomplish relatively simple tasks. These days, Rub Goldberg machines are usually performed as large scale stunts, like in OK Go’s music video for “This Too Shall Pass.”

This time, Seiko has shrunk down the scale to be almost impossibly intricate and small, but no less impressive. If you are enjoy the art of watchmaking, you’ll be fascinated by Seiko’s production. Check it out!

The Relaunch of the Terry Crews YouTube Channel

I’ve been working on the relaunch of the official Terry Crews YouTube channel lately, and it’s finally here. Really proud of the work so far, and there will be a lot of exciting content to come – motivation, fitness, family, behind the scenes, and more!

In our first video, Terry talks about the paralyzing effects of discouragement and self-pity, and how to counter them with an attitude of gratefulness.

Terry Crews is known as a movie and television star, fitness guru, motivational speaker, outspoken family man… the list goes on.

Terry is awesome. You know you want more of this guy. Watch our first video embedded above, and check out the channel and subscribe at youtube.com/terrycrewsfans!
