EPIC Tron helmets...



Now you too can look like this guy...



Okay, maybe you dont want to look like him.

But you can look better than him with this new Tron themed helmet from Parisian helmet maker Ruby.  Unfortunately, this helmet won't be out until January '11, so I guess it'll have to go straight on my birthday list...

The new coolest way to wear you music...





So I have this fascination with the ability of the iPod Nano to be worn on the wrist like a watch. Talk about multi-tasking. Plug in your headphones, run them up your sleeve, and listen to those fat beats.

What a novel idea. It's one of those "Why didn't I think of this?" kind of things.

Today I present you with the best two iPod Nano holders out there (that I've seen at least.)


This HEX watch band is the most "watch like." Sleek, simple design, and it's made out of rubber, so it's gotta be comfortable.             
                 -$25





Griffin's iPod Nano Slap band brings a little for flexibility and fun to the party. You just pop your iPod in and slap it on. How fun! I have a feeling more of my hours would be wasted just playing with the band. This one gets an A for the fun factor.

Kanye West: MBDTF



So today, Kanye West dropped his new album, titled My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy. I've been listening to this album for a few weeks now, and let me be the first to say it is truly an amazing piece of work. Kanye has taken all his pent up emotion/ frustration with himself and his surroundings, and twisted it into something innovative and unique.

In my opinion, his best album yet...

Make sure you check out the Complex Magazine article about the making of this album, and check out a review of the album over at the Rolling Stone.

Oh yea. Don't forget to download the album and listen to it non-stop.

Artsy Fartsy #1: Matt W. Moore


Today is the day.

I've been contemplating starting an ART series of posts, and now that I've got some inspiration, I'm ready to share.

Matt W. Moore is the founder of MWM Graphics, a Design and Illustration studio based in Portland, Maine. Matt works across disciplines, from colorful digital illustrations in his signature “Vectorfunk” style, to freeform watercolor paintings, and massive aerosol murals.
These murals are from his Crystals & Lazers Exhibition in Paris, France.

If you're as intrigued with his color and style as I am, be sure to check out his website and blog.

 
 This guys color work is epic, but the fact that he's doing it on walls makes it even better... 

This world needs more color.

What do the Matrix and surfing have in common?



Well, previously the two had nothing in common, besides the fact that wetsuit material was named after the main character (see: neoprene. Ed note: this is not necessarily a fact, more of a stupid joke.) Check out this video made for Rip Curl by Timeslice Films.

Daft Punk- Derezzed video


Here's a "music video" (kinda) for what I'm guessing is the title track off the new Tron: Legacy soundtrack. I'm a sucker for anything Daft Punk, so as you can imagine, I'm PUMPED for this movie to come out.  THE MUSIC WILL MAKE THIS MOVIE!

Gotta love the Daft Punk cameos in the video, hopefully they'll make a few appearances in the movie as well...

This video makes me wish i went to Coachella...


Watch in HD for full effect

Here's a pretty amazing time-lapse video of Coachella 2010. The tilt-shift style of photography gives it a dreamy, toy-like feel. Wow.  It doesn't even look real no matter how many times I watch it.


The coolest part is when it gets dark, and all the lights and colors awake from their slumber.

I WILL BE THERE NEXT YEAR.

You can have your own one-armed MLB Pitcher...


So it looks like Fathead.com is selling a Jim Abbott Fathead. Why anyone would want to have a one-armed pitcher on their wall is besides me, but it might be you...



Abbott had a solid 10 year career (1989-1999), and even has a 1993 no-hitter to his name.  Even though he was an AL pitcher for most of his career, he hit a triple in a spring training game, and one-time teammate Mariano Rivera claims he's seen Abbot hitting home-runs in batting practice...





Ed. Note: I hope my girlfriend doesn't see this. She's not too fond of the one-handies...

Mumford & Sons- Little Lion Man




Another foot stomper from Mumford & Sons. The way they combine bluegrass elements with the distinguishable scruffy English voice is magnificent. Not too many banjos in Britain, I'm assuming...


Listen to some more of their music (YouTube). Pretty rockin' stuff.

Try not to tap your foot to this song. It's impossible.

I'm loving the old footage used in this video.  The song kind of has a 70's folk vibe to it, and the visuals definitely add to the old-time feeling.

A moustache for your car? Seriously??

Im not sure why you would ever even want or need this, but it's kind of fascinating. Yes, it's called a Carstache, and it is a moustache for your car. My favorite is the "Legendary Blond" one.


Ok it's pretty stupid, but it's good to have sense of humor about these sort of things. Buy one if you must, but I'm fine just looking at the things...

Ehhhh, what's up Doc?


Sooo yesterday, Doc Halladay (aka Roy Halladay aka The Best Pitcher of our time) threw a no-hitter, in his first ever playoff appearance.  It is his second no-hitter this season, the other one being a perfect game vs. the Florida Marlins.

Man Hug.
It is only the second no-hitter in the playoffs in the Modern Era of baseball. Pretty impressive if you ask me. The guy was striking people out left and right. Stud.
