Dr. Dre’s Performance At Liv In Miami.


Any party at Liv in Miami seems to be the best one yet, so it only makes sense that the newest video from Headliner Marketing Group would have the most stars yet.  The video surfaced recently featuring Dr. Dre performing one of his classics in the presence of Fabolous, Trey Songz, Neyo, Wiz Khalifah and Lil Wayne for DJ Stevie J’s birthday.  Check the method.

The Little Printer That Could.


Every tech site I follow, from Fast Company to Smart Planet to PSFK is gaga over the Little Printer. And there is no question, it is the cutest little bit of electronics since the Furby. The beautifully designed website describes it as “like having your own printing press, newspaper and a dog to fetch it for you, all in your front room.” It is all about design, which should make me so happy:

Graphic design is at the heart of everything Little Printer delivers, making the most of connectivity and print combined. Rendered in crisp black and white these tactile publications take visual cues from traditional halftone lithography and modern pixel art, whether they’re the latest international news or this week’s gossip from friends.

 

Sh*t Girl’s Don’t Say.


Over the course of my life (starting in college) I began to keep a list of the top 5 most impressive things girls have ever said to me.  Weather it was a funny comment, a sexual comment, something I needed to hear exactly in that moment, or just an incredibly diesel statement, I just have always had that little list.  The other day when a friend of mine brought back up the YouTube video “Sh*t Girls Say” we stumbled across the parody titled “Sh*t Girl’s DON’T Say” which may be even truer.   Written by 1072 Productions, starring Sarah Walpert, and directed by Evan Padgett, this new YouTube hit just goes to show that even if a girl as as perfect as Ashley Logan (above)… In a relationship, there’s just certain things she probably won’t say.

The 2015 Electric BMW’s.


BMW will launch a mid-range MPV aimed at larger families in 2015, to complete its ‘Project i’ series of upcoming electric vehicles.  Although the first ‘i’ model — (the i3) — hasn’t even hit the roads yet, BMW executives are already planning to augment the range.  Essentially, the proposed i5 is designed to compete with models such as the recently launched Toyota Prius V, an enlarged version of the hybrid bestseller which can seat up to seven passengers and offers plenty of cabin space.  It could be built on the platform of the i3, an all-electric hatchback concept due in 2013 which features a 125kW motor, a top speed of 150 km/h and an optional range extender which uses gas to ensure the it doesn’t run out of juice.  The model will be priced above €50,000, giving it a considerable premium compared to the Prius V, which starts at €23,000.   Its second model, the i8, is a high-performance sportscar slated for release in 2014.

Custom Power Ranger Hoodies.


This image of awesome Power Rangers hoodies was floating around today, but it isn’t worth a damn unless you can actually get your hands on one. After a little digging I discovered that they probably originated from RangerBoard member Shoebasket who notes that he will take custom orders for $110 $85 a pop.

The Papercut Printer.


Möwe – Dream Paper Concept looks at the possibility of having intelligent paper that prints, auto cuts and folds 3-D paper projects. A lot of folks indulge in 3-D scale models and it is an interesting hobby. Mac takes the idea a step further by suggesting that what if we could control “where and how far to fold and also when to fold via Bluetooth or WiFi, it means you could move paper as you like without touching it. (It’s like embedding Javascript in paper)” Building models from Google 3D Warehouse would be child’s play even for the non-devout.  Swag.

Yelawolf – Rack City (Freestyle).


The official ‘Rack City’ remix dropped recently featuring T.I., Fabolous, and Young Jeezy, but Shady Records’ own Yelawolf hopped on a freestyle verse.  Check the method out above.
