Kreayshawn – Gucci Gucci.


Its funny how the true the term “6 Degrees of Separation” can actually be.  I’ve rocked some of the same venues as Kreayshawn, and my brother Reginald Sylvester even illustrated the poster used for one of her overseas singles.  So I was a bit amused when a friend of mine from Miami told me about a music video he saw on twitter from “some girl around where [you] stay at”, and it turned out to be the one and only Kreayshawn.  Check out her video for “Gucci Gucci”.

And for those of you unfamiliar with Kreayshawn, check out some of what she’s got to say for herself.

Let me say as much as I can in this time I am not distracted. I am moved by creating, documenting, flourishing in society. I’m coming right from Northern California. Young East Oakland baby to be correct. I am a Director, Cinematographer, Editor, DJ, Pixel Artist, Rapper, Swag assassin, Under-cat. I am just here working for you. Let’s see what it look like in my world. I live in Los Angeles, CA. Self employed baby doll looking for consistent work with the love to travel.

LeBron James Balls Hard.

I’ve always said to the people around me, to my staff, and to my younger cousins growing up that there’s always someone above you, and always someone below you.  Simply put, no matter how good you are, there will always be someone better.  And that’s a lesson that King James is teaching people with the leak of his Las Vegas receipt.  Supposedly LeBron James spend a few cents over $171,937.00 at a Las Vegas lounge recently.  Almost $13,000 in taxes added to his bill helped comprise the whopping total (that could send a person to a 4 year university).  And no matter how much you ball out in the clubs, there are not too many people who can rack up a bill like that and not think twice about it.

I only have one question… Who the HELL’s idea was it to spend $108 on Bud Light?

Cassidy Arrested and Suspected of Murder.

The Philadelphia Police warrant squad called the Hackensack Police Department on Saturday morning to tell officers there was an open warrant for Hackensack resident Barry Reese, also known as Cassidy, Hackensack police Lt. Timothy Lloyd said.  The warrant was for violating probation, but Reese is also a suspect in a murder and two attempted murders in Philadelphia, Lloyd said.  Philadelphia police knew from a prior investigation that the rapper lived in Hackensack, Lloyd said.  Philadelphia police told their Hackensack counterparts “to consider this person armed and dangerous,” and this was a “high-risk warrant,” Lloyd said.  Officers from the Hackensack Police Emergency Response Team and the police department’s juvenile bureau watched Reese’s home Saturday on Reilly Court, Lloyd said.

Reese left his house about 1:30 p.m. and was followed by police to a local convenience store, Lloyd said.  An undercover ERT officer went in the store and positively identified Reese, he said.  When Reese came out of the store, “the ERT units moved in and conducted a felony motor vehicle stop,” Lloyd said.  Reese “was very surprised,” Lloyd said. The officers who arrested the rapper “did an outstanding job,” he said. “Without the proper teamwork going on, this could have spiraled out of control quickly.”  No one was injured in the arrest, Lloyd said.  Reese, 28, will be brought to the Bergen County Jail Annex to await extradition to Philadelphia, Lloyd said.

WTF Picture From The Distant Past. (Part 2)

With the globalization of the internet, there are trillions of images that float around, and an immeasurable number of pictures that make people say “WTF” on a daily basis.  I came across a series of these pictures that had a bit of a twist to them.  All of said photos are authentic, vintage, and dated between the 1920’s and 1940’s.  The number of pictures that caught my attention was so great that I had to split it up into two posts (the first post dropped yesterday and you can see it here) but the subject matter and content of all the photos are unique, but I guarentee you all that all of them will make you (in one way or another) think to yourself “WTF”.   Check part 2.

Ball-Point Pen Illustrations by Hakuchi.

What it takes to be a good visual artist nowadays? Is it knowing how to draw hyperrealistic? Is it knowing how to use every image software that exists? I think it isn’t any of those virtues. Maybe the most important thing is to create your very own visual aesthetic, when I mean aesthetic I’m not saying style, that’s not the same thing on my point of view. You can have a really particular aesthetic Influenced by many styles, but that doesn’t mean it’s not unique.  Hakuchi is one of these illustrators that really got me, not because of his detailed trace, but because of his aesthetic. 3 colors illustrations, violent / ironic content, deep inspired in japanese and manga culture. That’s how I would describe the amazing work of this illustrator (one of which is a picture of a a man riding a motorcycle penis).  Enjoy.

The Affinity Chair.

Ben Alun-Jones’ latest work is an attempt at the impossible: invisibility. ‘There is something of an ideology in chair design,’ he explains, ‘that really what you want to sit on is nothing – like you’re supported by air. That’s how I began creating a chair that, in a way, wasn’t there. A structure made out of light.’ The ‘Affinity Chair’ is unlikely to win any prizes for comfort, but it pulls off an impressive vanishing act.

Plastic acrylic sheet and one-way mirror film are used to create a structure that reflects and merges with its surroundings. The chair not only responds to and camouflages itself to match its environment, it also interacts directly with the sitter: sensors activate pulsing LEDs hidden within its frame that quicken like a heart beat as it is approached. The effect is eerie: as the chair is lit from within, its reflective surfaces becomes transparent and all its edges are illuminated. The chair’s disappearance is an attempt at escape; yet this strangely animate object remains rooted to the spot, it’s vanishing body revealing a further hidden space within.

Alun-Jones’ explains his work as using technology itself as an artistic medium to challenge existing perceptions. His materials are unconventional – LEDs, ultrasonic sensors, custom-built and programmed circuit boards. The result is new, challenging, and anything but robotic.  The Affinity Chair will feature at the Royal College of Art Interim Show (Wed 2nd – Mon 7th Feb) as well as appearing at V&A Connects with… ARTS THREAD (Tues 25th Jan) and the V&A Digital Festival (Sat 5th March), both at the Victoria & Albert Museum, London.

The Many Faces of The Batman.

With the announcement of the ‘new Dark Knight Rises villains‘, I’ve been on the prowl for new news related to the new happenings of Bruce Wayne. Unfortunately nothing new about the 3rd Chris Nolan installment came up, but what I did find was a rather extraordinary collection of illustrations related to the Batman himself. Many different artists produced many different imaginings of the Dark One, but the subject is the only thing these pieces have in common. Each illustration is extremely unique in every way, from the costume, to the generation of “Batman” to the style and medium that the piece was created in. So for those of you who enjoy everything Bruce Wayne (Reggie)… Feast your eyes on this collection.

A Classic Classroom.

I’m not necessarily one for the classroom, but when I saw these pics from a classroom photo shoot, (the room being the subject of the shoot), and I was quite impressed, but when I saw the video of the preparation of the room, the meticulous detail observed in every single nook and cranny, I knew I had to throw it up.  So check the photo’s pay attention to the little things, and watch the video to see how much work it took.

Whats in store for Thor.

From the looks of the first exclusive picture, the costume Thor will be using in the film is based more upon Marvel’s mainstream “Thor” series rather than the “Ultimate” version of Thor. This is especially interesting, given that many of the other Marvel movie characters have used the publisher’s “Ultimate” universe as source material.  While we don’t get to see Thor’s magical hammer, Mjolnir, in the picture.  I would suggest, anyone going to see ‘Ironman 2’ this weekend, should stay after the credits if they want a look.  I can’t give away too many details, but trust me.  Its going to be epic.
