Boardwalk Empire Costume Designers Interview [Video]

One of the best shows on television at the moment, and this interview shows, why that is. Attention to detail, take care of the small things and the rest will take care of itself.

We are the market talk to costume designers John A. Dunn and Lisa Padovani about their work on one of the best dressed series around, Boardwalk Empire.


Kendrick Lamar - Rigamortis [Video]

When Rigormortis occurs within a corpse, it's muscles tighten, causing the body to become very stiff and difficult to move.The chemical reaction causes all blood to gravitate to the areas of the body that are closest to the ground, leaving colourful indications of a life that once was. As the soul escapes, toxins are left behind leaving the corpse to rot and decompose. This is the fate of any rapper that goes against Kendrick Lamar, more commonly referred to as your favourite rapper.

That's just an intro to the description youtube gives when you look at this video. The force is strong with this one, powerful lyrically, excellent delivery, and a flow that can go double quick time with technical precision on his breathe control, as he keeps those syllables flowing right till the end.

Agent Provocateur - Fleur du Mal [video]

I'm not one to comment , but I feel the big difference between the big lingere houses, and your more run of the mill department store shit, is honestly just advertising. I know this speaks volumes as to my inability to take in thlifes finer details, or how hasty I am when doing the deed. This is one of those ads that sells lingerie so well it could only come from a house who's name has been mentioned in several, luxury rap verses.

Agent Provocateur presents “Les Fleurs du Mal” a film directed by Justin Anderson and produced by Epoch Films. This short film is to celebrate the launch of Soiree Collection 2011-2012.


Chronicle [trailer]

This is a trailer for an upcoming movie that has my interest piqued. They go in the woods, stumble on something in there and all get powers, pretty sweet shit when you're in high school and can only think as far as your next sandwich.

One of them little overboard with his new powers. Don't know what it is about this first person view that gets me amped everytime ie: Cloverfield and Blair Witch, but I'm waiting on the right script to deliver the goods.


Kendrick Lamar - Spiteful Chant [Live Video]

Kendrick, took to Fort Lauderdale this weekend, this is a snippet of what went down. The dude is streets ahead of his contemporaries. Here he is performing one of my favourite tracks off Section.80. "Too many niggas, and not enough hoes And most of you niggas, acting like hoes...


Porsche Design P'9981 Smartphone for Blackberry

I'm not a Balckberry person, primarily, because they look like shit, and secondly I like to stand out in a crowd, not in a loud flamboyant kind of way, but I like my things to have a premium feel to them, which I just don't get from Blackerry, sorry R.I.M.

The boys over at Porsche Design, seem to have had me in mind when they smashed otu the P'9881. That typical Blackberry uniformity, makes way for a sleeker shell, and what look to be somer classy little touches on the smaller stuff. Blackberry can only do well to learn here.Of course the upgade isn't purely aesthetic, but a whole lot of upgrading has been done on the inside as well, read those here.


Young Jeezy - .38 the movie [trailer]

.38 is a short film that will packaged with Thug Motivation 103. I don't understand what all the doubt being thrown at Jeezy, but I'll say I'm not counting this dude out as yet.


The Road to Miss South Africa 2011 [video]

On a this particularly huge weekend for the Gauteng Rugby Union, I'll remember it as a weekend where I learnt that, Americans aren't as dumb as we thought they were.

The problem seems to have hit our shores pretty hard as well. I woke in a drunken daze on Saturday, and while waiting for my friends to deliver the alcohol I would consume for the rest of the day. I channel hopped and came across something I thought would induce a boner in me. The road to Miss South Africa 2011.

Basically, an Idols like show where they held auditions throughout the country and slowly whittle their way down to the girls who will vye for Miss South Africa 2011 in the final competition. Like I said my reasons for watching were purely masturbatory, but the things I saw and heard made my pee-pee sad.

The country is well stocked with beauties as evidenced by the show, but a beauty of substance is much harder and rarer to come across. It started off with the girls parading in front of the judges, in their bikini's thus earning them a call back to the jhb interview. Like I said, the country has a lot to offer the eyes. It's also quite obvious that no girls aspire to have that elgant body that beauty queens of old used to grace our screens with. Today's mould is all spray tan, bolt on tits, and hair extensions, something out of the blow up doll catalogue.

The pretenders were easily chopped based purely on looks. Another gripe I have with this thing, is the judges panel, Principal Judge and former Miss South Africa Sonia Raciti-Oshry, Joan Ramagoshi (former Miss SA & businesswoman), Sonia Booth (former Miss SA 2nd Princess and model), Kieno Kammies (Talk show host & Journalist), Gert Johan Coetzee (Designer) and Paledi Segapo (Fashion Consultant).

All the old beauty queens I can understand, but if you're gonna have males adjudicating a beauty pageant, atleast pick straight ones. Sure gay guys did wonders for straight mens fashion sense in queer eye for a straight guy, but they tend to find the good in all women, and this competition you want stunners right off the bat. Keino, on the other hand seems to have lucked out on getting on this panel. While he is straight, he doesn't exactly ooze ladies man/international player, or most elligible bachelor vibe. Which you need your male judge to be. Only a man who has dabbled in a lot of women can sit at a table and tell other women, they just don't cut the mustard. Next time judges pick me.

Fuck, I'm getting sidetracked. The girls got through the greulling bikini section and got invited to the jhb interview section. Where they were asked pretty general knowledge questions about the country they so badly want to represent. You know who's the deputy president, what's the national flower, animal, does Cape town have a mountain.

Not necessarily stumbling blocks for anyone who has half an ear toward the countries current affairs, or someone who didn't get a double G symbol for their woodwork class.

These girls.! I'm not sure if they were doing it for my amusement, but they fucked up royally.One poor gil when asked what the countries, national animal was , answered the big 5. Then when given another oppurtunity to guess, answered the monkey. Suffice to say I'm hooked on this show, cause there was one stunner who ticked all the right boxes and made mr pee-pee smile agian.


Kanye West and Jay-Z Watch the Throne Opening in Atlanta [Video]

This was the tour that had spurious rumours about the strain it placed on these two's relationship. Rumour had it Kanye wanted to go Over the Top, and Jay, being the shrewd business man he is, didn't see any financial sense in going OTT.

It was just a rumour, but beef had reared it's ugly head the last time Jay-Z had a collaborative tour with R. Kelly, so those that cared were slightly worried. Without a glitch, the well oiled machine that is now referred to as the Throne. Kicked off their tour in Atlanta. All you other rappers might do well in watching this, masterclass in performance art.

The spectacle didn’t dissapoint as both heavyweights performed a 2 1/2 hour set of individual hits in their respective catalogues, plus for the first time songs off their platinum-selling Watch The Throne LP. On lookers that included LeBron James, T.I., Young Jeezy, The-Dream, Shawn Pecas, DJ Jazzy Jeff and more got to witness a set that included: two high-definition big screens, two cubed shaped rising platforms, pyrotechnics, and even two great white sharks in tanks.

Yeezy also debuted a second colourway of the much anticipated Air Yeezy 2's. I wish this tour would hit our shores.

How Drake celebrated his 25th Birthday [Video]

Yesterday, was meant to be the day Drizzy Drake released his sophomore album, but due to some sample clearance issues, and the high horse stance Drake took, the album was pushed back, for your listening pleasure. Anyway, Drake not one to be bogged down, by that fact went out and celebrated his birthday anyway.

I'm sure proper footage will surface eventually, but currently this shakey cellphone camera footage will have to do.


Duck Sauce - Big Bad Wolf [Video]

I'm not gonna tell a lie, but "Duck Sauces - Barbra Streisand," was the soundtrack to my december last year. It just went well with everything,from sundowners, braai's, benders and threesomes. Looks like they're plotting to run shit again this year with this track and video

A-Trak and Armand Van Helden, collectively known as Duck Sauce, unveil the visual for their latest dance single “Big Bad Wolf.” Similar to the clip for their global hit “Barbara Streisand,” the duo offers a hilariously entertaining video which was helmed by Keith Schofield. Follow the duo being intertwined throughout the day. Enjoy!


Pusha T - What Dreams are made of [audio]

Fear of God 2, as the release date looms closer, Pusha, like the good dealer he claims he is, gives us a little taste to get the masses hooked. This dude has for me owned 2011, just making it impossible to have a conversation about Hip Hop, without mentioning his name.


Beyonce x Terry Richardson Photoshoot for Harpers Bazaar

I don't know how Tery Richardson, does it, but I wouldn't mibnd trading lives with the man. Name a person who hasn't been captured by this mans lense, and they're probably not important enough. His lense is the barometer for cool, and this time he gets to go in with Beyonce.

 Harper’s Bazaar commissioned him to shoot Beyonce for their Nov issue. Over the weekend Terry posted some outtakes from the shoot on his blog.

Unemployed man burns more than 100 cars

Being broke can be seriously frustrating, I know cause I'm sitting typing this whilst counting the hours before pay day.  Unlike me some people are proactive and one dude in Berlin set alight to a bunch, ok, maybe a bunch is an under estimating, ol boy set fire to about hundred luxury vehicles cause he was sick and tired of not working and decided that he was going to spread his bum luck.

Drake - Take Care [ Trailer]

The album that got pushed back, gets a trailer. Guess Drake, couldn't leave you all hanging and offered up a little something.Some of the milestones are bullshit though, 19 nillion likes on Facebook. Really!? Is that a standard bearer now?


Lil Wayne GQ Photoshoot [Video]

A behind the scenes look at the photoshoot, from the interview I posted earlier on.


Dude has a problem with his testicles [Video]

Fuck around. was that even real? Shit! It just makes me uncomfortable watching this dude hobble around town like this. I Think he's the only man in the world who can fill out hammer pants, bet you he's glad thy're back in fashion.Anyway dude needs 1 million dollars to get that nut situation taken care off. I'm no doctor or anything but, that sounds a bit excessive, homeboy might have included the Aston Martin he wants to sit once he gets regular pebble nuts.


Noahs ark killing

Seattle Times - After the shooting stopped and panic subsided, 50 exotic animals were dead. The owner of the farm that housed the creatures also apparently shot himself to death after unleashing 56 wild animals on Zanesville, a city of 25,000 in central Ohio, perhaps in a final act of spite against neighbors and police. All but one of the dead animals were shot to death. They included 18 rare Bengal tigers, 17 lions, six black bears, two grizzlies, three mountain lions, two wolves and one baboon. At least one animal, described by officials as a large cat, was struck by a car and then shot. The last of the escapees, a monkey believed to carry a potentially lethal herpes virus, apparently was eaten by one of the carnivores, Muskingum County Sheriff Matt Lutz said late Wednesday. Six survivors — three leopards, a grizzly and two monkeys — were captured and taken to the Columbus Zoo. Jack Hanna, a television personality and former director of the Columbus Zoo, described the series of events as “like Noah’s Ark wrecking.” Hanna defended Lutz’s decision to kill the animals, but said the deaths of the Bengal tigers were especially tragic. Only about 1,400 of the endangered cats remain in the world, he said. “When I heard 18,” he said, “I was still in disbelief. The most magnificent creature in the entire world, the tiger is.” While animal-rights activists have heaped criticism on Lutz and his department, the sheriff took pains Wednesday, almost 24 hours after the first 911 call, to illustrate the danger of employing nonlethal force. Deputies don’t carry tranquilizer guns, only Tasers, Lutz said. “When you’re dealing with a 300-pound Bengal tiger or you’re dealing with a 200- to 300-pound bear, I don’t think I’m the one who’s going to try a Taser.”

Pretty fucked up shit, but the cops had no other way to deal with the situation.


Lil Wayne GQ interview

The interview runs the gamut of topics, from both his outward appearance, to the resentment he holds inside against his father. Writer Claire Hoffman catches up with Weezy in a haze of weed and eccentrics, where at 1 a.m. he finally opens up. Check out some choice excerpts below and head to GQ to read the piece in its entirety.

I hear you plan to retire when you turn 35?
Basically, I have been doing this for eighteen years. That’s reason number one. I have accomplished all that I have set out to accomplish and more. Also, I have a label, and I’ve only put out two artists [Drake and Nicki Minaj]. I have a lot more work to do, and it’d be selfish to not focus on being the boss and focus on their projects.
But the main reason is my kids, my children. Now, if I thought I’d be selfish to my artists, imagine what I think I would be doing to my kids. I have enough money that they don’t have to ever do anything—which, they will do everything, ’cause they ain’t getting shit. [cackles wildly] Six [more] years, I can do this Lil Wayne thing, and my boys will be about 7 and 8 years old. And man, it’s all about them then. You know, whatever they’re doing. Sports. Whatever they’re into. That’s where I am. I’m at every game. I’m the dad with the hat on. The jersey. That’s me.
You’re sober now? No more syrup?
I’m good. I ain’t tripping. I’m used to it now. But I was never on heroin or cocaine or Ecstasy or nothing like that. I drank syrup and smoked a lotta weed. I wish I could be back on it. That’s how it fucking feels. [cracking himself up]“How does it feel to be sober?” I’ll be like, “It feels fucked-up.” What you want me to say? “It feels great”? No. I was on something that the doctor prescribed. I was ill, and that was helping me.
What’s up with all the skateboarding?
You know, I don’t know. Everybody asks me that question, like, “What made you start skating?” Yeah, well, um…I don’t know. I’m still like a kid, because unfortunately my childhood was raped away from me because I became a star, a rapper, or whatever you want to call it, and you can’t be a kid and a rapper at the same time. So I watch television and I get real amped. Like, people watch commercials, and they’re like, “Who’s gonna buy that?” I’m the person they make the commercials for. I watch them, and I’m like, “Oh God, that’s awesome.” So I was just watching TV, and I was like, “Yeah. I want to do that!” And I called a guy and I said, “I want a ramp on my roof.” I have a pretty big roof at home. So I put a ramp on the roof about five months ago, and man, I’ve been skating ever since.
How does life look right now through Lil Wayne’s glasses?
I can describe it like this: Today I was riding up to the venue. I had just woken up, and I looked out the window, and there was like a billion cars in the parking lot. I turned to my girl, and I said, “Isn’t it crazy how all those cars and all those people are there to see me?” And the craziest part was I still could get that feeling. All this time, after all those albums, videos, all those awards and money and groupies and homeys and gangbanging and friends and no-longer friends. That I can still get that feeling, like, “Wow. This is amazing.” That’s what it is to be me. Yeah.

World's Oldest Whiskey to be auctioned at R170 000 at FNB Whiskey Live Fest 2011

The annual FNB Whiskey Live Festival held at the Sandton Convention Centre is kicking off on the 9th of November and close its hallowed doors on the 11th. Above is the worlds oldest whiskey going on auction at the Whiskey fest. Two 70-year-old bottles of Glenlivet whiskey will be auctioned off and are expected to bring in around R170 000, now fuck me that's a lot of money to pay for some good Whiskey, that shit better not fuck around and give a even a hint of a hangover. Details about the fest after the jump:

Funny Or Die Boasts All-Star Cast for Clinton Foundation Skit

FunnyOrDie pulled off what may be the most star-studded internet sketch comedy bit of all time. They really must have called in some favors to get this amazing ensemble, Ben Stiller, Bill Clinton, Kristen Wiig, Jack Black, Matt Damon, Sean Penn, Ted Danson, Mary Steenburgen & Kevin Spacey.

The tremendous cast of characters work for former President Bill Clinton at the Clinton Foundation's Celebrity Division. The group of egos sat down to brainstorm ideas for the Clinton Foundation's 10th Anniversary. The ideas are getting kicked around, but as one would imagine, actors are better actors than they are activists (sorry Sean Penn). Jack Black teleconferences in with his usual overacting and mediocre guitar-playing shtick. However I do love Matt Damon's mascot for the Bill Clinton Celebrity softball team.

Coldplay - Paradise [Video] Shot in South Africa

Coldplay drop the visuals from there latest single,off Mylo Xyloto, only this time the video was shot while they were out in South Africa touring, bits of both the Jhb and Cape Town concert were used, so those who were at there will get there "Where's Wally," on right now! Way to endear yourselves to the Saffas Coldplay.


Girls on Bikes by Benn Watts [Video]

It would be rather remiss of me to not mention that said "girls," are naked. Don't ask why just watch!


Richard Branson christens terminal "Gateway to Space"

Yeah, having been out the news for a while you had to know Sir Rich, was nose down, overseeing some new project a game changer as he usuallly delivers. See the thing with Branson is he embodies, that "you never know till you try, " saying. He's tried more times and failed in public more times than any of the other moguls.

He'd always said he wanrted to conquer space, whether or not you believed him or just plain forgot about that rather ambitious goal, Sir Branson goes and shows us he's one step closer to acheiving his goal.

Vans OTW Bedford

I've always liked the silhouette on my sneaker to slim, slim in profile, and just clean lines, most manufacturers get it wrong by going all clunky, but I suppose that's just my taste (classy).

Arriving in rich oiled brown leather, the Bedford seamlessly integrates a traditional gum outsole further legitimizing its outdoor appeal. Delineating its smooth leather upper, the mid-top silhouette features a textured tonal suede tongue and a multi-colored checker lining and footbed. The Vans OTW Bedford is now available for €99 EUR (approx. $136 USD) through Caliroots.


T.I ft Pharrell - Hear Ye, Hear Ye [Audio]

Shia La Beouf getting smacked outside some bar [ Video]

video platformvideo managementvideo solutionsvideo player

Look, I'm not gonna lie. I don't like the kid. Maybe it's got something to do with the fact that he's made more money from three movies, than I have in my lifetime of slavery.

I don't know what sparked this particular incident off, but I do know, that a lot of people don't like you when you're famous. They just waitng for you to to do anything, and they'll let loose their frustrations. I should know, cause I'm kind of like a big deal, round these parts. This is why I get my drink on at Jolly Roger, they keep things civil there and no one tries this sort of shit.  Hard luck Shia! Perhaps you should look into some personal protection, cause let's face facts you're not the champion of the people, you aren't Ali in his prime, unanimously loved by all. You're an actor kid who, got to mess around with toys that were invented before you were born and fondled a chick that every man wanted, atleast for a little while. So there's bound to be some resentment toward you. Or else drink in your expensive condo, and leave us poor people some girls to got home with.

Def Jam Recordings The First 25 years of the Last Greaat Record Label [Video]

Bill Adler, the co-author of Def Jam Recordings: The First 25 Years of the Last Great Record Label, sits down with Nineteen87 Visuals and Rap Radar for a two-part interview on the exploration into the book. Adler, who served as the in-house publicist during Def Jam’s formative years, had both unique access and prospective on the cultural game changer. From management to musicians, Adler described the people who went into making this book as cooperative and enthusiastic.


Adidas Adipure Trainer

"adidas today unveils the new adipure Trainer, the first barefoot training shoe designed specifically for the gym. Promoting pure and natural movement by harnessing the body's natural mechanics, the adipure Trainer activates and strengthens muscles, builds balance and promotes dexterity"

The Gym monkey in me is excited about these, the stylish dude that resides within, is a bit apprehensive.


Nicki Minaj - I Am The Female Weezy [Video]

I guess there's a memo floating around at Young Money, encouraging their artists to take to video and drop their thoughts, and keep the public informed as to where their mindframe is at. Weezy did it two weeks ago, I think inspired by the death of Steve Jobs. Now It seems Nicki wants to have her say. I'm all good with these Public Service Announcements, but out the Young Money stable, I don't wanna hear from anyone else besides Wayne, Drake and Nicki. Not to be a dick or anything but I don't wanna hear from Mack Maine, Tyga , Chucky or whoever else is enjoying the coat tail ride over at YMCMB.

Fuck it after watching this, I just think Nicki is taking the piss out of Waynes Public Service Announcement. Don't know if this was approved by the higher ups, but I don't think it's a wise move to rip your boss like this.


Tyler the Creator - Bitches Suck Dick f.t Jasper & Taco [Video]

With the Golf Wang crew you're either gonna get some high art, make you think type shit, or just get them playing around and having fun, this is a case of the latter.


Miguel - Girls Like You [Video]

Sometimes these crooners have the right idea, sing and sing well, and the girls will line up. Miguel, has had that bubbling under feel about him for a while now, never seemingly cracking the nod from the masses. I believe he's at tippning point now, and it's only a matter of time before he's all over your favourite rappers hooks.


The Roots "Make My" featuring Big K.R.I.T.

The Roots dropped “Make My," a track off "undun," the group's upcoming concept album. This is some grown man Hip Hop, I don't think the youngsters ears have matured enough to appreciate this.  The group's 13th album hits on December 6th.

"Undun" is an existential re-telling of the short life of one Redford Stephens (1974-1999). Through the use of emotives and Redford’s internal dialogues the album seeks to illustrate the intersection of free will and prescribed destiny as it plays out ‘on the corner’. Utilizing a reverse narrative arc, the album begins as the listener finds Redford disoriented–postmortem–and attempting to make sense of his former life. As he moves through its pivotal moments he begins to deconstruct all that has led to his (and our own) coming undun.

Snoop Dogg asks Welsh Farmer to help him grow weed [Video]

As far as longevity and relevance I don't think there's any rapper out there who's done it longer and better than Snoop Dogg. He's had a few run ins with European Authoirities. He makes a plea to this Welsh farmer who broke records for the size of his vegetables.


The Avengers [Official Trailer]

Iron Man, Thor, Captain America, Hulk a little Scarlett Johanssen. I don't think a movie like this can live u to the fan boys expectations, but I will most definately line up asnd get my ticket when the time comes.


Coldplay ft. Rihanna - Princess of China [Audio]

Having just left our shores, the boys from Coldplpay release a new track featuring Rihanna. I guess ever since Chris Martin worked with Jay and Kanye. They've developed a taste for the dark arts.On a personal note, "I'd feature Rihanna in a track just so I could get a closer look at that body in studi." Then again that's why I'm not a multi platinum selling artist.


Drake on Saturday Night Live + Performance [Video]

Yeah, officially Drake is a big deal, if you still needed affirmation. It doesn't come bigger than a nod fromk Saturday Night Live. Drake is no starnger to acting, so this must have been pretty easy to fit for him. Drake and Samberg chop it up on an SNL Digital short. Drake also performed his new track"Make me proud," with Nicki Minaj. Album out Nov 15.


Beyonce - Love on Top [Video]

Yeah, I'm guilty of neglect. It's been a rather hectic two weeks for me , so I aplogise for my abscence. First thing I post is a Beyonce Video? Have I grown soft in my abscence? I guess Beyonce's machine is going to go on overdrive, pumping out as many videos she can from this album before the old bun in the oven starts to show a lot more.

Fam-Lay - Beach Cruisers [Video]

Fam-Lay goes in over a Chad Hugo beat, I like the result.

Sometimes we tend to overintellectualise music, in all honesty just keep the subjrect matter simple have a driving beat, a good video, and you have yourself a hit. With visuals like tese you can't go wrong.


Drake Take Care album pushed back

October 24 Drake turns 25, it was also the date his sophomore album was meant to be released. but due to some clearance issues, it seems as though November 15 is the new date. Still gives you all plenty of time to learn those lines before he performs in JHB.

The new date for Take Care is November 15th, 2011. I managed to create this album in my hometown of Toronto and the thoughts and stories I wanted to get across just became so clear. It truly felt like when I was here 3 years ago making So Far Gone. So I have completed 19 songs (17 on physical and 2 on bonus), and have run into a roadblock of clearing 3 samples in time to make the October 24th date. My options were to take the songs off and make the birthday release happen, or to take an extra couple weeks to get the paper work right and give you the album they way I NEED you to hear it. The choice was clear as day for me. November 15th you will get Take Care the exact way I created it with no trimmings. This music means too much to me to get attached to dates and I do apologize for the delay but I promise that it is only for the benefit of our experience together. Club Paradise Tour will also be moved to when students are back from the Christmas/New Year break so that I can get to more schools. New dates will be released in the next week…see you all soon. - Drake


Lil Wayne Public Service Announcement [Video]

30 minutes of Wayne just talking,a rarity to say the least. I guss the death of Steve Jobs, weighed heavy on Waynes mind. He goes all philosophical, weighs in on mortality, his legacy, syrup, skating.

Interesting to hear where his mindset is at.

Cinthia Fernandez on Dancing with the Stars Argentina [Video]

Who the fuck is she? You might ask, truth is I have no idea. What I do know is she''s on the Argentinean version of Dancing with the Stars. A show who's S.A equivalent can't match this, for just in your face sexual appeal. Well the Argies don't seem to hold back on that. Infact I don't think Argentina has a Broadcast Complaints Commission like we do.

How hot is that routine, how hot is her body, are you nursing an erection right now? Argentina gets a fully naked Cinthia, we get...H.H.P?! It's just not fair.

J.Cole sent his fans a quick video message before going onstage on Tuesday, thanking them for making his debut album Cole World: The Sideline Story, the number one album in the country, selling 217,000 copies in its first week.


Chuck Testa [Video]

It sometimes takes a while for these internet memes to hit me, but this Chuck Testa one is too much. I don't know how hectic taxidermy industry is, infact I can safely say I've never met or seen a taxidermists office in my life. they're a rare bunch, so I wouldn't think you need they need adverts to differentiate their product from the rest.

What, too soon?

The phone was announced two days ago, the world as a collective had built the phone up to heady levels, but were seriously underwhelmed when Apple delivered a iPhone 4s. To coincide with its announcement on the new iPhone 4S, Apple have also released this video highlighting the features of the new Siri voice recognition function.

All this is done by just asking simple questions, leaving you free to concentrate on other things such as driving your car. You can read more about Siri over at Apple. The new iPhone 4S is set to release on October 14. This shit is a game changer right there.


Interior Design of the new Porsche 911 [Video]

The 2012 Prsche 911, in my opinion is one of the best looking cars I've seen, understated, subtle, sleek, classy. It just oozes something I can't quite quantify. The updates daren't only in the outside and under the bonnet, the interior weas revised. Taking styling cues, from the range topping Carerra GT, and more leather than PETA would allow. I neeed one.

Peep this recently released video from the Frankfurt Motor Show featuring an exclusive look into the interior of the new Porsche 911, as described by Martin Pohanka, lead of interior design for the new model. The video reveals dramatic changes to the new Porsche 911 including a redesigned, more sporty center console inspired by the Carrera GT. Materials used in the new interior include chrome and wood finish, carbon, and customizable leather options. The vehicle also includes a larger digital touch screen. Expect a continuation of comfort and elegance from the interior design of the new Porsche 911.

Fuck the Rain Umbrella

With the bout of shitty weather experienced in JHB, over the weekend. I reckon this would be a good addition to the cupboard. A conversation peice when you're amongst a crowd, and a signal of your disdain to the rain Gods.

Forza 4 trailer feat. Jeremy Clarkson [Video]

Man, this ad just resonates with me. The time for fast gas guzzlers is coming to an end, the end of an era, if one will. I haven't made enough money to know for myself, what these exotics are capable of. The days of the driver are coming to an end, and I don't want to experience it from my 1080dp flat screen, not that I can afford one of those either.

Kendrick Lamar performs with Snoop Dogg and Game {Video]

Well, not really. It's more like a passing of the torch ceremony, with Game, Snoop, and Dre all extolling the virtues of Kendricks, rap abilities. The West Coast is in good damn shape with thios kid at the forefront.I know the footage is about a month old, but I got that "Section.80," on blast in the background as I type. Is Snoop Dogg not the coolest Motherfucker in the world, seriously?!


Diddy calls out non Ciroc drinkers at club [Video]

T.I and Diddy host a B.E.T HipHop Awards afterparty in Atlanta. Where I guess, Diddy didn't take too kindly to some of the patrons not drinking his Ciroc Vodka. Now I'm no marketing genius or anything, but this is the dumbest shit he could do. Then hides behind his entourage like a real tough guy. Diddy is giving us rich people a bad name. Does Puff think he's the new Suge Knight? cause even he got layed out. This is why I stay sipping Belvedere, just classy. The look on T.I's face is like "please don't let me go back prison."


T.I first post prison interview [Video]

T.I has been busy making moves since his release, hopping on remixes, perforing live releasing a single. I guess when you take the leash off the dog he'll run amuck. T.I. made his first post-prison interview when visiting Atlanta’s V-103 to premiere his new single. During the 26-min interview, TIP (with son Major by his side) speaks on his return home, going back to his street roots for his new album, his VH1 documentary and new book, being labelled a “bad guy”, debating between two titles for his upcoming album, sending his yet-to-be-released “N****s In Paris (Remix)” to Kanye in France for his blessing, Drake, Lil’ Wayne and Rick Ross being the only faces in rap currently, and Atlanta’s Hip-Hop scene being quiet.

Louis Vuitton "Geometry of Light" Tokyo Exhibit [Video]

Yeah, a shop I seldom set foot in, yet all my favourite rappers drop lines about the brand with a frequency, that borders on product placement. I wonder how much Louis, you had to have purchased to get an invite. If the tone of this thread sounds a little sour, It's cause I am.
