Lil Wayne – Krazy (Official Video)


lil-wayne

Dressed in a white straitjacket, the video opens Wayne being dragged through an insane asylum as prisoners creepily recite The Lord’s Prayer. Throughout the video, Wayne is shown eating in the asylum’s cafeteria, taking part in group therapy, taking his medicine, being locked in a padded room with his two alter-egos, starting a riot among the prisoners, and finally being electrocuted in an electric chair.

I’m not talking about being crazy in the song, I’m just talking about being me, and a lot of people view that as crazy so we just wanted to capture that and have fun with it.~ Lil Wayne explained to MTV.

The Miracle Machine, which promises to turn water, yeast, grape concentrate, and finishing powder packets into a DIY wine. Just sync the machine up with its corresponding iOS or Android app, mix in the ingredients, and then give it three days. After 72 hours, wine will appear where there was once just water (and those other ingredients). Choose from six varieties: Cabernet Sauvignon, Napa Chardonnay, Oregon Pinot Noir, a Tuscan blend, Sonoma Sauvignon Blanc, and a red and white from Burgundy. The makers say despite the brand newness of it all, the wine will taste likes it’s been aged to perfection.

Montreal-based fashion designer Ying Gao presents two new kinetic garments, whose aesthetic details tessellate in reaction to sound. The ‘incertitudes’ series consists of white and silver colored fabric which have been covered in dressmaker pins, outwardly protruding from the textile’s facade. Through a collaboration of mediums and technologies — PVDF plastic, dressmaker pins, and electronic devices — The metallic accessories interact and respond to noise in their environment, activated through the spectator’s voice. Their fluent motion generates a wave-like flux, contracting and expanding the entire wearable object. The clothing’s original function is reappropriated and transposed into a unique aesthetic application.

Microsoft Making A Smartwatch


microsoft_smartwatch_01

As Apple continue to hire talent to work on their supposed “iWatch” project, Microsoft are rumored to already be planning to retaliate with a smartwatch of their own. Several weeks back it was reported that Microsoft placed orders for 1.5″ screens and now trusted sources have told AmongTech that the smartwatch is already being used as prototype and will be available in a variety of colors – blue, red, yellow, black, white, and grey. The outside housing will be made from Oxynitride Aluminium – a type of aluminium that is 80% transparent and four times harder than glass. The source also said that the device will include an adapted version of Windows 8 and will work with Cloud storage (plus 6GB internal storage) and 4G LTE. If the rumors turn out to be true, expect this to be unveiled sometime in late 2014.

The Maison Blanche.


blanche(1) maisonblanch5(1) ??????????????If the city is called Casablanca (White House), creating an all-white interior for a restaurant there isn’t a major creative break-through. But Christophe Pillet, the designer of the Maison Blanche (White House), reflected the omnipresent white back on itself with smoked mirrors, and created a vertigo-inducing vessel-of-a-space that forces one to look again.  The 600 square-meter (approx. 6500 sq.ft.) restaurant and bar, opened in July 2012 at La Place Mohamed Abdou and La Rue du Commandant Lamy, facing the Parc de la Ligue Arave. Maison Blanche Casablanca is the baby sister of Maison Blanche Fes, opened in 2009.  Maison Blanche Casablanca feels like a container, a bottle, or a jewellery box where the guest will appear as the filling, the jewel, the berry, or the decoration. Chef Thierry Vaissière’s cuisine will likely bring the guests back again for another look at themselves and their chic friends.

Blood of Grapes Wine Bottle


03

This creative bottle design was created by Belarusian designer, Constantin Bolimond. His idea is based around the concept of wine as the blood of grapes. The striking form is themed off a human heart to reference the fruit’s origin – France. The product is realized in black and white finishes, featuring a simple inverse typeface to communicate the wine’s label. The design brings a new meaning to the devil’s nectar.

A Silent World.


Some photographers are a jack of all trades when it comes to different types of photography, and others are just masters of one particular style.  Unfortunately I haven’t seen enough of Michael Kenna’s work to categorize him like that, but I will say that the one style/recurring theme of his collection “Silent World” shows a mastery of his craft.  All the photos individually tell an eerie story that depicts loneliness, alienation, and a vast distance from familiarity.  Take a look at this collection, and to see more from it, just click here.

A Few Incredibly Racist ”Hunger Games” Fans.


Over the March 23rd-March 25th weekend, “The Hunger Games” was a box-office juggernaut that broke all sorts of records.  But for some fans, the movie didn’t adhere closely enough to their imagined world of the book — specifically when it came to the skin color of some of the characters.  Now before we delve into this issue, let me say personally that I despise when producers changes characters….

When Katie Holmes was switched with Maggie Gyllenhaal in ‘The Dark Knight’, I was a bit disappointed, because I didn’t feel as much of a connection with character, all I could think about was the switch.  In the upcoming monster movie collaboration ‘The Avengers’, Edward Norton has been replaced by Mark Ruffalo, and I got drunk one night and expressed my discontent with this on twitter.  However, I understand why they changed the actors, and I just have to deal with it.  A while back, in the Bay Area, I noticed a bit of an uproar when the film ‘Green Lantern’ was approaching because the main character was white.  Given my skin color, I still was unapologetic when explaining to angry fans that the black Green Lantern (John Stewart), wasn’t having his race changed, they just chose to tell the story of Hal Jordan.  It’s not a racial issue, and there is NOTHING wrong with that.  But some ignorant fans of ‘The Hunger Games’ seem to have tripped themselves up on a few details in the new movie that just have me downright perplexed.

Three major characters in the film are black — Rue, Thresh, and Cinna. The books themselves, set in a post-apocalyptic future, don’t use specifically racial terms at all, providing only a description of characters from Katniss (the main character’s) point of view:

There you have it, descriptions IN THE BOOK of the physical look of the characters in question.

I hate to keep harping on this point, but…

The World’s Most Expensive T-Shirt.


A United Kingdom-based company called Superlative Luxury has created an eco-friendly t-shirt priced at $400,000.  The t-shirt is made of 100% organic cotton and the manufacturing process uses only renewable energy, such as wind and solar, reducing the carbon footprint by 90%.  The t-shirt features a spherical pattern created from 16 one-carat diamonds; half of which are white diamonds and the other half are enhanced rare black diamonds.  Due to the company’s preference for greener manufacturing, it takes them four weeks to make a shirt.  The t-shirts come with a one-year warranty.

”Can You Lend A N*gga A Pencil?”


So, before I get into this, I just want to say to the readers, I love you guys, but please don’t start an email debate on the merits of the N word.  I already know people who stand on every side of every fence on this issue.  But this particular video is secondarily all about the use of the word, and weather a white teacher’s actions were racially driven not.  The story happened some time ago, and cause a semi-epic stir.  The reason I’M throwing it up, is because this is the funniest use of the N word by any white person I’ve ever seen in the history of my life.  Simply put… this n*gga is hilarious.  Check the method.

New School/Old School Arcade Games.


So, who’s got game? We found these old-school tables in Australia at Arcade Tables. The company has been making the coffee-table size arcade tables, which were popular about 30 years ago, since 2001.  While the newly designed tables are more stylish, they’re still filled with the classic video-arcade games of the 1980s including Space Invaders, PacMan, Donkey Kong, Scramble, Galaga and more.

The tables come with 60 pre-loaded classic games that include all the original soundtracks and graphics. The company reports that its arcade tables are being played on in Australia, New Zealand, the UAE and the UK. The tables are being delivered to private households, as well as to commercial clients, such as bars, lounges, cafes and even workplaces. The units weigh about 165 pounds and can be stationary or made mobile with attachable castors.

These tables are home décor friendly with sleek designs and come in various colors.  The Stealth, the newest product, is offered in both black and white glossy variants, which are listed as “Deep Space Obsidian” and “Supernova White.”  The glass-top surface of the tables is one-half-inch thick tempered, tinted glass with beveled edges and a rubber seal to ensure durability. Along with the arcade tables, the company also sells complementing stools and accessory pieces. The various stools are uniquely decorative.
