The DJ Earworm Addresses The United States Of Pop…. 2018.


For more than a decade, DJ Earworm has been blending the year’s top songs into a massive “United States of Pop” mashup at the end of each year. He began the series in 2007, kicking off with a combo of songs from Soulja Boy, Akon, Avril Lavigne, Rihanna, Fergie, and more. It’s been 11 years since that inaugural mashup, and Earworm hasn’t slowed down in the slightest.  His 2018 edition just made its YouTube debut on December 4, highlighted by tracks from Ariana Grande, Post Malone, Zedd, Childish Gambino, Marshmello, and more.

The four-minute mashup kicks off with songs from Bebe Rexha and Florida Georgia Line, and Maroon 5 and Cardi B, before cycling through Drake‘s iconic “In My Feelings,” Bruno Mars and Cardi B’s “Finesse,” Travis Scott and Drake’s “Sicko Mode,” and dozens others.  Regardless of your personal taste in music, any TRUE DJ has to admit that this is an impressive feat to accomplish.  Take a listen.

It’s only been about 12 years or so since the last time anyone saw Kong the King on screen.  This new adaptation at first had some doubters but after a few looks, and this latest trailer, I don’t know how anyone could not be excited for the new Kong.  Check the trailer below.

The CKIE online shop is filled with amazing trinkets, but the Reveal watch caught my eye this morning. The time is always in the present. This 33mm timekeeper reveals the current time through a looking glass while fading the past and the future. (Also available in a 40mm model). If you are a person of the present, this watch is made specifically for you.

The Road To ‘Civil War’.


Captain+America-+Civil+War

The American Civil War… just kidding.  This has nothing to do with any of that.  I had the incredible opportunity to see Captain America: Civil War today, and I will not spoil anything.  However before I hit the secret Disney/Marvel screening, I took a look at a YouTube playlist of all the current Marvel Cinematic Universe trailers (which you can find here), and in the process, I stumbled across a video from the amazing editors at ‘MCU Exchange’ titled “Road To Civil War”.  This is a wonderfully put together 7 minute video that shows the progression of the MCU up until Captain America: Civil War.  Check out the complete wrap up below. Civil War hits theaters on Thursday May 5th in the U.S.

Have You Ever Seen A Black Badger.


HMX_BB_Top_Night-trio_Hres_CMYK

The press release for the Black Badger says the watch features “three-dimensional objects” milled from “solid light.” The science geek in me recoils at such phrasing but nevertheless, I was curious and keen to learn what alchemical tricks James Thompson the watch’s creator had used to transform his rage into solid light. Check the method.

The HYT Skull Bad Boy.


HYT-SkullBadBoy-front

Death. Power. Celebration. The skull is associated with numerous themes, and HYT has used it to great effect in its namesake collection. The Skull watch was first released in two references with red and green liquids, each sporting matching eyes of the corresponding color and resembling a different comic book character. The Skull Maori came next, and had detailing that evoked traditional Maori tribal tattoos. For its latest creation, the Skull Bad Boy, HYT has ventured into the rebellious, grittier subcultures of biking and hard rock.  The most striking aspect of the new release is its fluid module’s black liquid, which had taken the brand over a year to develop.

HYT-SkullBadBoy-Back

It’s worth noting that every new color used in the brand’s fluid modules is an individual “product” whose hue is just one aspect that must be engineered – the liquid must also maintain a defined meniscus within the glass tube, repel itself from the tube’s inner walls instead of sticking to it, have a suitable viscosity and thermal coefficient, and finally be UV resistant.  Chemistry aside, black also represents an entirely new shade for the brand, whose past developments have been confined to bright, almost fluorescent liquids. The new liquid is a perfect fit for the Skull Bad Boy’s monochromic color scheme, which includes a black DLC-coated titanium case and slate grey leather strap. The watch’s overall look is sinister, and fully deserving of its name. The general lack of vibrancy doesn’t translate into a lack of details though. Note how the grey hour indexes on the flange support the theme with their Gothic typeface, and the dial’s Clous de Paris pattern that resembles a leather cuff’s studs.

The T-Block Watch.

T – Block re-defines time through an original quality timepiece and has a very futuristic look.  It boasts a robust design that’s unlike any other watch you’ve seen. Clear, LEDs are embedded in a tough polyurethane case and seamless matching strap. When the watch is in sleep mode, the LEDS are dim, but if you want to know the time or date, just hit one of the buttons and the  lights appear, revealing the time and day.

Watch What You Eat.


process book studio3 final priny process book studio3 final priny process book studio3 final priny

Google’s made some really nifty advances. Google whatever you’re eating and you’ll get a rough calorie count of your meal. However, you can’t rely completely on Google’s algorithm. Some people use too much butter or fat, some people cut down on unnecessary carbs. Google doesn’t account for that. What you then need is the Telo wristband.

process book studio3 final priny process book studio3 final priny process book studio3 final priny

Armed with state of the art tech, this little bad boy makes use of a sensor on your wrist to assimilate your food and give you a fairly accurate estimate of how many calories it contains. That aside, it also warns you of any ingredients that may be allergenic. The Telo also comes with its companion app that completes the user experience/interaction circle. Loaded with features, it allows you to get the most out of Telo, and yourself too.

process book studio3 final priny telo_watch_6 process book studio3 final priny

While some may say that an entire wristband may be a little too clunky for them and that a calorie counting app and a fitness wearable work just fine, I say this isn’t for the nonchalant-hearted. The Telo is a core-fitness device, almost crossing into the medical category. Given that, the Telo is a necessity and therefore having it on your wrist sounds absolutely plausible.

telo_watch_4 telo_watch_3 process book studio3 final priny

The Telo is ideal for people with blood sugar/cholesterol issues, heart risks, obesity problems, or mild to serious food allergy issues. That aside, if you want to get serious about watching what you eat, watch it with this ‘watch’.

Duckwrth – Psycho (Official Video).


duckwrth

It’s rare that the music videos provide us with a form of story telling now a days, be it straightforward or more abstract, the Hip Hop video landscape is littered with cars and falling money, and single colored backgrounds.  (No offense to anyone who has a video like that… I’ve been in a few myself).  The social commentary and quick witted delivery of Duckwrth’s single “Psycho” required accompanying visuals that also made a statement.  The sleek and sultry bass lines provided by The Kickdrums, move the video through a few basic but beautifully shot scenes.  Director Nick Snow and crew did a wonderful job, from a full 720 degree tracking shot in the park, to the bright and slightly ominous apartment ending with blood red walls.  Check the method below.

The ZIIIRO Mercury.

The ZIIIRO Mercury watch displays time in a simple and unique way. The tip of the inner swirl represents the current hour, while the outer swirl displays the minutes, with a continuous gradient movement showing the passing through time.  Brilliantly designed, and something I’d thoroughly love to have for my birthday.

The ZIIIRO Eclipse watch is inspired by one of natures most amazing and unusual phenomenon, the Eclipse. Now be enthralled by this experience right on your wrist everyday.  This minimalistic designed watch uses a patented Swiss Super-LumiNova pigment on the watch dial and minute hand, offering day and night visibility with bright illumination in the dark. Forget the days when you have to look for a light source or dig your pockets for a mobile phone to read time in the dark. This watch glows in the dark with sufficient activation by sunlight or artificial light.

The Final Trailer For The Entourage Movie Is Here.


entourage-1280jpg-884802_1280w

Warner Brothers just released a new trailer for the cinematic adaptation of the hit HBO series “Entourage.” In what looks like an extremely fun, extended episode of the show, Ari Gold (Jeremy Piven) and the boys continue to navigate the choppy waters of Hollywood as Vincent Chase (Adrien Grenier) declares he wants to become a director.  But enough about the plot! The trailer features plenty of bikini-clad ladies, super-cars and yachts — all of which will undoubtedly lure the show’s faithful fanbase into theaters.  The movie also promises myriad celebrity cameos. Some standouts include Warren Buffett and Ronda Rousey, but there are literally too many to name here.

Touchdown. Big Sean plays the field in the cinematic video for his Kanye West and DJ Mustard-produced anthem “I Don’t Fuck With You” featuring E-40.  The G.O.O.D.

Black Beauty.


black_hole_watch_concept4

Tourbillon is one of the most basic complications that you look for in a watch, the grounding factor and the most poetic one. It is essential in keeping the negative effects of gravity on the accuracy of time telling, away. What we have here is the Tourbillon Black Hole Concept Watch, which is inspired by our universe and especially by the black holes.

black_hole_watch_concept3

  • The three rings (hours and minutes) are designed like a vortex and the tourbillon escapement represent a nebula that is going to be inhaled.
  • You can see a transparent disk with white points (stars): this is the disk of the seconds and it moves at the speed of 360 degrees / minutes.
  • The moving tourbillon and this stars disk plus the rotating rings will create a beautiful black hole effect.

 

 

black_hole_watch_concept

The movement is mechanical and hand-wound with the power spring placed on the left side of the watch. All of this is visible thanks to a second sapphire glass. The time is indicated by the blue arrow and we can see that presently it shows 3h 18min.

Steve Aoki, Chris Lake & Tujamo – Boneless (ENFERNO Live Remix).


0903_arts_enfernoThe art of DJ’ing has been undoubtedly convoluted with actors, and pretenders who just pre-mix sets, and dance around on stage.  It’s a trend I feel like will only get worse before it gets better.  There are of course turntable warriors like DJ Enferno who not only do everything live, but are more than happy to demonstrate their skills.  Check out Enferno’s amazing live remix of ‘Boneless’ from Steve Aoki, Chris Lake, & Tujamo.

The Gangnam Style Guy Has A Song With Who?

Psy, the highest viewed artist on YouTube is back again with another memorable video.  Hangover, featuring none other that Snoop D-O-Double-Gizzle, (or Snoop Lion, whichever you prefer) was published on June 8th, and in a matter of 12 hours had well over a million views.  This new, half-english, collaboration has an entrancing beat, and hopefully can be a worth successor to the world famous Gangnam style.

The Doepest Watch On The Block.


t_block4 t_block3

Watches are to men as diamonds are to women; both count as the number one fashion accessory and are timeless. Innovation is of essence and creative ways of telling time is a novelty factor. Beyond doubt, complications and mechanical watches are the epitome of technicalities, however due credit has to be given to path-breaking manufactures like the T-Block Watch. Designed to dress the wrist, the most challenging part is to resist the linear display of time.  The watch is inspired by the ‘less is more’ styling and is made using a tough polyurethane case and seamless matching strap. There is a very unique way to read the time, which is showcased via the embedded LEDs on the watch face. The dial houses an array of attractive lights that dim in sleep mode. However, if you want to know the date or time, simply hit one of the buttons and the lights appear, revealing it.

The Innovative Bradley Tactile Watch


general

An innovative fashion watch that everyone, including the blind, can touch to tell time. Telling time shouldn’t require vision. The Bradley is a tactile timepiece that allows you to not only see what time it is, but to feel what time it is. The Bradley in this case is Navy Lt. Brad Snyder, who lost his eyesight after an IED explosion in Afghanistan, then willed his way to two gold medals in swimming at the 2012 London Paralympics. The watch can be used by a blind person or someone with sight, as it tells time via two ball bearings, with one indicating hours and the other minutes. The ball bearings are magnetically connected to a watch movement beneath the watch face, so even when they’re touched or moved, they always return to the right time with just a shake of the wrist.

Is Your Watch Made From An Active Volcano?


romain-jerome-volcano

As the smoke barely clears on the Icelandic Volcano, one brand is already seeking to capitalize on all the chaos and disruption caused by Iceland’s Eyjafjallajökull.  (I think thats how you spell it).  Romain Jerome introduces the Eyjafjallajökull-DNA, a unique-piece memento of the eruption that tortured air travelers and newsreaders the world over.  Like the other pieces in the DNA series the Eyjafjallajökull-DNA incorporates an element of the event it is celebrating in its design.

-

Just as the Moondust-DNA featured actual dust from the moon on the dial, so too does the Eyjafjallajökull feature actual ash and rock from the volcano.  What is truly special, however, is the remarkable effect Romain Jerome has been able to achieve with the design of the dial.  It actually gives the appearance that hot lava is bubbling just below the surface, ready to unleash its full force at any second.  The piece is accompanied by a certificate of authenticity confirming that the volcanic rock and the ash used to create it do indeed come from the infamous volcano.
