New M.I.A.


M.I.A's latest video "Born Free" was released yesterday and it's pretty heavy. So if you're easily offended approach with caution. There IS violence and sexual content. But it's very political and satirical. 

Some may say it's too much (read: Youtube banned it), but if you don't take it at face value it's do-able. I personally can't wait for Fox and Bill O'Reilly to comment on this.


Check it out, some jewelery company (that should probably go out of business now) teamed up with Stephanie Meyer to create a real life version of the engagement ring Edward gave Bella in Eclipse.


I mean...I don't hate the idea. If I owned a jewelery company this could potentially bring in lots of dough because there are tons of tweens in the world who would actually waste their parents' money on this.

But here's where this whole plan goes sour:
1. The ring is UGLY. 


If I wanted a roly poly on my finger I'd go dig in the dirt like I did when I was 8.

2. They are actually pitching this as a REAL engagement ring. FOR $2000. COME ON. $2000 for a diamond roly poly. No thank you. I could get this from a gumball machine for a quarter. 

* There's also a $40 dollar version that looks exactly like the $2000 version. Really? Just really?

Hear Hear: Crookers x Steed Lord

One of my favorite tracks from their CD

Don't think if this is an official video, but it is damn awesome.

Yo dawg I heard you liked money. So we but a dollar bill on your window so you can spend while you spin.

Hear Hear: Midnight Juggeranuts


This song is pretty hot. The only thing hotter is the remix by D.I.M. which is surprisingly so unknown I can't find a Youtube video of it.

Google map envelopes

Map envelope is one of the best ideas everrrr! Put an address in (any address works, if you're using your own street address, remember to include your city state and zipcode!), preview and print! I love thisssss!


Click image to enlargeeeee

I'm so amazed.

Hear Hear: Monarchy

Hot track and beautiful video. I just love it when electropop/indie/hipster bands have a lead singer that can actually SING, and the music is really good too. You know...unlike pretty much every other electrindier band these days.....no one can sing.


Whenever I think that by the time millionaires are finally able to go to the moon, like a trip to Six Flags, I will just be pushing 90 and living on a $5 social security check and it makes me want to kill myself. I'M READY FOR THE FUTURE NOW. I want all these future/space videos to be a reality! Trips to the moon for everyone BEFORE 2070.

Hear Hear: Boys Noize does Justice in the World of Electro

They take Phantom Pt. II (originally by Justice) back to it's robotic basics and it's still just as bad ass as the original song. 

The thing I love of Phantom I and Phantom II is how great they would be as someone's theme song. Like that scene in a movie when the coolest, most BAMF person first appears I can hear this playing. Or even better as the background music to this epicly cool fight scene. Just so suave.

Hipster Kitty and Friends

A few weeks ago I made a posting about the HILARIOUS Internet Meme "THE PHILOSORAPTOR." It's literally hilarious. Well there are more where that one came from and let me tell you that ALLLLLLL of them are the funniest things ever. Between Yo Dawg, I'mma Let You Finish and these "Advice Dog" variants I don't know which is better. They are all so great.

The Advice Dog: The originator. He gives you great advice.

INSANITY WOLF: IS INSANE and creates teh drama.

Rich Raven: Is a snob.

Pokeparents: If Pokemon were parents. It's funny because the faces match with the personalities. FULL OF LULZ

Courage Wolf: "In contrast to Advice Dog, who might unknowingly lead you to do something you’ll regret, Courage Wolf will help you achieve greatness."

And FINALLY the best one of them all, Hipster Kitty:

The Best Thing Since the Clap Light

Ooooh Lazy Paradise, REJOICE! I'd never have to get up and unlock my door again!

There's a nifty little DIY-Tutorial on how to make one of these for yourself at Instructables.

Another interpretation of what could happen on December 21, 2012 (or how the world will end in general). 8 Bit makes everything better. I think I'd prefer this to something like, oh say....2012.

Who even came up with the Mayan "end of the world" crap? I didn't really care about it before....but then I lost 2 precious hours of my life when I watched 2012 and ever since then I have been really bitter towards the whole 2012 mania. 

I vote that we build a submarine, load up of the people who started the "world will end in 2012" and more importantly the people who wrote and ALLOWED 2012 to be unleashed upon the innocent public, then drop the submarine into the Mariana's or San Andreas fault or something. Symbolic of the time John Cusack fell into the earth's crust in his RV then magically hoisted himself out and proceeded to run fast enough to catch a plane basically at take off speed. GTFO 2012.

Vintage Daft

I'm super excited about this facebook effort to get Daft Punk to play at Voodoo Fest 2010, since this is the greatest year ever and Daft Punk will be going on world tour hopefully and they definitely have new music coming out soon because they did the score for Tron Legacy that is coming out in DECEMBER. Oh God this year will be great.

Note: Shameless plug for anyone on facebook who cares about seeing Daft Punk at Voodoo to join the group, yah?

At any rate, here is some vintage Daft Punk from a time when advertisements were apparently amazing even though the product was GOD-AWFUL.

Can Gap.....or anyone for that matter....please do more ads with Daft Punk? I mean....that denim is AWFUL but paired with Daft Punk I kind of feel like shopping at the Gap right now.
