Action on Fashion [Video]

Boylston Trading Co sits with Queens rapper Action Bronson to discuss his wardrobe as a youth, fashion likes, dislikes and what happened when he met American style royalty Ralph Lauren.

Honestly one of the most charismatic emcees out there, has a mind dirtier than Ghostface killah, and wit to keep thing humorous.


Drake ft. Lil Wayne & Tyga - The Motto [Video]

Initially, to my knowledge the Tyga verse was never official, but I guess the young money crew have made it so. Drake offers the official visuals for this single.


Best Bike Rental Advert Ever [Video]

My preferred mode of transportation is a car with plenty of horses under the hood, preferably German horses. With the greenification of our world at the moment. My German horses are frowned upon whenever they do get the oppurtunity to gallop at full pace.

I'm not into bicycles anymore like when I was a young boy, but the way things are looking  cars are gonna be outlawed soon and we'll all be riding 9 million bicycles like it's Beijing. I'm getting sidetracked here, but basically al I'm saying is the roads will be over run with bicycles, and if you don't own one you'll have to rent one, and uptop is "The Greatest Bike rental Ad ," I've ever seen. Tits, ass, licking, kissing, and a bicycle. You'd be a fool for renting your bicycle anywhere else.

Land Rover DC100 Concept [Video]

Land Rover is prepping to release a new and improved version of the iconic Defender model, as we see the gradual disappearance of the 4×4 vehicle throughout time. The preview highlights a pair of concept models – both of which could possibly see production as soon as 2015. Some significant tech upgrades have been implemented into the rides, one of which is a uniquely crafted tire that features retractable spikes. The tire additions allow for extra traction when coming across adverse terrain. While the video may satiate your Land Rover obsession for the time being, only time will tell if either of the concept vehicles get to set their rubber to the road.


Common calls out Drake [Video]

It would be remiss of me not to post this now, purely based on the fact that i want to move traffic this way. Crux of the issue is that Drake talked some shit at the Cali Christmas set he played.

Lonnie Rashid Lynn , didn't take too kindly to that and has some choice words for the young Toronto MC. He also put it out there that the track "Sweet," is directed toward Drake. I can respect Common for actually coming out and saying the track is aimed at Drake, because today a lot of shots are taken subliminally, and rappers hide behind the fact that no names are ever mentioned. Do I think this will ever escalate to an all out war? No! I do however think that this could have more to do with Serena Williams than either rapper is willing to admit.

Interesting breakdown of the track over here


Guy sings Niggas in Paris on Subway [Video]

This here is a reason I'm not a fan f public transportation. Don't get me wrong, I would laugh hard at this if I was on the train, shit might even brighten my day, but on the off cahnce that shit is not going swimmingly this would be a nightmare.

We in this 3rd world country have only just got our taste of a proper train infrastructure with the Gautrain. It's still early days so theres a quite a lot of effort put into stopping the rot, but as soomn as these trains canvass the whole city you can look forward to this sort of experience.In the eternal words of Dave Chappelle/Rick James...


The Dark Knight Rises Trailer

I really didn't feel like blogging today, sure theres a few things worthy writing on, but none really grab me by the nads.This Drake/ Common beef? Eh, who gives a shit! So I was pretty content to sit in my underpants eat chips ahoy, and drink beer all day.

Till I saw this trailer. I've been avoiding the various leaked pics from the set, and the little spoilers that keep leaking, so as not to burden the movie with lofty expectation, and therefore ruining it for myself  when it inevitably falls short. This trailer though, made me jizz in the aforementioned underpants and now the American summer can't come soon enough.

“After the big success of their first book, Henry Hargreaves is back and presents the 3DD: A 3-D Celebration of Breasts – real breasts in even better 3D. ‘The compendium of un-augmented pairs comes complete with retro viewing specs to enjoy page after page of topless women.

Kim Jong Il dead at 69 [video]

(Reuters) – North Korean leader Kim Jong-il, revered at home by a propaganda machine that turned him into a demi-god and vilified in the West as a temperamental tyrant with a nuclear arsenal, has died, North Korean state television reported Monday. Kim, who was 69 years old, died early Saturday of a heart attack while on a train journey, it said. Kim Jong-il, famed for his bouffant hair-do, platform shoes and jump suits, slowly emerged from his father’s shadows to become one of the world’s most enigmatic leaders who put North Korea on the path of becoming a nuclear power. North Korean propaganda said Kim Jong-il was born on February 16, 1942, at a secret camp for rebel fighters led by his father near Korea’s famed Mount Paektu. But analysts say he was likely born in the Soviet Union when his father was with other Korean communist exiles receiving military and other training. Kim was known as a womanizer, a drinker and a movie buff, according to those people who had been in close contact with him and later left the country. He enjoyed ogling Russian dancing girls, amassing a wine cellar with more than 10,000 bottles and downing massive amounts of lobster and cognac. North Korea’s propaganda machine painted a much more different picture. It said Kim piloted jet fighters — even though he traveled by land for his infrequent trips abroad. He penned operas, had a photographic memory, produced movies and accomplished a feat unmatched in the annals of professional golf, shooting 11 holes-in-one on the first round he ever played.

Guess, Nando's was foreshadowing this when they did that last dictator standing ad. World is getting awful lonely for Mugabe.That bit about the golf just kills me every time I read it I think of a bunch of kids standing in a circle, making shit up to prove why their dad is better than the rest. This 11 holes in one shit, is exactly that.

Twilight for Men [Video]

If  Twilight was a little more like this, perhaps I could be persuaded to give ashit.


Castrating Lambs with your teeth is bad for you, what?!

What kind of a world do we live in where giving a lamb amouth hug, is something that a health department has to tell you not to do? I mean shit! Why, would you even want to castrate a lamb with your teeth? You're obviously just looking to get your rocks off and stumbled on some beastiality loophole.

WASHINGTON – It might seem like common-sense advice, but US health officials issued a short note Thursday warning that using your teeth to castrate lambs could make you sick. Back in June, the Wyoming Department of Health was notified that two men working at a local sheep ranch came down with Campylobacter jejuni (C. jejuni) infections. The patients both suffered from diarrhea and one also had abdominal cramps, fever, nausea and vomiting. One even spent a day in the hospital, according to the report issued by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). Neither patient reported having eaten poultry or unpasteurized dairy products, which can be associated with the bacterial infection. But the two men had participated in a multi-day event to castrate 1,600 lambs — and both reported having used their teeth to do the deed.


Woman Tattoo's "DRAKE" across her forehead

Having been at the Drake performance this weekend, witnessing first hand the pull Aubrey, has on the ladies. He just brought the groupie out of some of the most composed chicks I know.

I didn't think it would, even though i bore witness there was no way I could anticipate the force was this strong.
This young lady went and tattoed the word "DRAKE" across her forehead. Below is an interview Vice Magazine had with Will Rise Tattoo studio, the ones who put that ink on her forehead.

Kevin Campbell tells Vice:
She was really psyched about it. She had the shitty font all picked out on her iPhone ready to go and was pretty adamant about putting it on her forehead…When I printed up the first image of the lettering, she wanted me to go bigger…
My whole deal with people wanting completely outrageous and potentially life-ruining tattoos is this: I’ll ask them three times if they really think it’s a good idea, I tell them what the potential consequences of getting a tattoo on their face might be, and after that, the bad decision is on them. I believe that people get the tattoos that they deserve
I guess I feel bad that this dumbass got the name of the softest motherfucker in hip-hop tattooed on her forehead. But what makes that any less valid of a tattoo to her?… I lost a little sleep over it that first night, wondering if I wanted to be known as the asshole who tattooed “DRAKE” on some crackhead’s forehead.

Lil Wayne and Drake perform I'm on one in Jo' Burg [Video]

The posts have been a bit thin and a bit scarce on the blog, but even your favourite basement blogger deserves to enjoy the festive season. This past weekend being no exception. Drake, Lil Wayne, and Rick Ross were in the area, and with two solid nights of performances  Johannesburg , had plenty to choose from this weekend.

I don't usually like to dwell on concerts after the fact especially good ones. I prefer to never talk about them, and and lock them in the happy box in my mind. So watch the video uptop if you feeling nostalgic, or if you weren't there so you can pretend you were.

Bugatti 16C Galibier

With the Veyron nearing the end of it's production run and it's replacement still under lock and key. Leaving all to wonder how they'll improve upon the beast that is the Veyron. What we do get however, is the new Four door Bugatti, squarely aimed at blowing Rolls Royce, Aston, Porsche, Maybach and Bentley out of the uber luxury sedan market, as the most coveted item for the rich and famous.

Once existing only in concept form, Bugatti’s 16C Galibier is set to officially hit the production line. The four-door sedan will feature another high-powered engine with rumors including the W16 with 1,000 hp, or a more scaled-back 800 hp which utilizes only two turbochargers. The price of speed and comfort will set potential buyers back $1.4 USD million.

Johannesburg voted the Greenest City in Africa

Another day, another award for the Crown of Africa
Hahaha, I got news for all you other cities always complaining bout the smog factor when you come to JHB. So fuckin tired of hearing coastal people bitch about the quality of our air. Well it's now in black and white for you doubters. Our shit, does not stink!

Johannesburg has been voted the greenest city in Africa, the Economist Intelligence Unit study revealed on Saturday.

The report was published at the 17th Conference of the Parties (COP17) in Durban, KwaZulu-Natal.
The Siemens African Green City Index looked at 15 cities around the continent.
Cape Town, Durban and Pretoria were also evaluated by the study.

The cities were judged on air quality, sanitation, waste, water, transport, land use, and energy, oxygen and environmental governance.

Johannesburg scored the lowest carbon emissions out of all South African cities and the lowest electricity consumption.

All of the Lights

So hopefully this puts an end to all  the incessant rants from Cape Town and Durban. You guys made the mistake of smelling the ocean and thinking that meant clean, you might as well be Darfur, from what I read.

The only way these coastals are green, is if you look on the jealousy index... Green is our city, green are our wallets. Here's a little track to rub it in.

Salty much?
