The iconic "Jumpman" (Air Jordan) logo is the basis of the "Lift Off" t-shirt design, which has lifted the classic logo and gave it the triplezed bootleg touch. The white socks and stars are a reference to another famous MJ who has inspired the world. Im not the only one who has used the inspiratonal logo for a tshirt check out the late rapper Big Pun's take on it.

The original "Jump Man" logo is the silhouette of the photograph below of Michael Jordan. The photograph isn't actually of Jordan performing one of his many famous dunks, but of him busting some ballet moves in the photographers studio. Who would of guest it.

Aswell as the site going live I just found out this morning from a reliable source two of my favourite (living) artists will be playing at Hyde Park this June. STEVIE WONDER and JAMIROQUAI. I think tickets are around the £50 mark which is cool with me, as last time Stevie played at the 02 the starting price was £100! Still never seen the Ealing boys Jamiroquai either, the closest I came was when I was about 11 and my folks took me to my first Notting Hill Carnival and we could hear the music but it was so rammed and I just remember huge police horses shitting everywhere and being surrounded by swetty people.
