Alex & Chloe Tees

Alex & Chloe is well known for their unique and stylish jewelery, but they have also introduced a t-shirt line that I quite like. Their minimal designs are what attracted me to the line. Using large over sized prints, basic shapes, colors and gradients for most of their tees. The line is a bit pricey for what I would normally pay for a t-shirt, but some of their tees are on sale right now which brings them down to an almost reasonable price.

Nixon Headphones

Nixon is known for their quality and well designed watches. Recently they took the dive into the headphone game as well, and from the looks of it they have done a great job. Shown here are the Nomadic and Wire models. Upon their looks alone I was ready to make a purchase right away, but unfortunately they are currently out of stock, or not in stock yet. I am anxious to see if they sound as good as they look, but judging from the quality of Nixon’s other products I would be willing to bet the sound is worth the extra dough you will have fork out for them.

Fingerboarding is one of those things that I never understood how people get so good at. I used to watch videos of kids doing some insane things with fingerboards. It seems kind of silly when you think about it, but takes a lot of coordination. The same goes for the new iPhone/iPod Touch game out by Illusion Labs called Touchgrind. The game is basically a virtual fingerboard that you control with different finger combinations. It’s obvious a lot of time has gone into this game. The physics are very lifelike and there are different skate parks and games you can play within the game. For only five bucks you can spend hours trying to master this virtual fingerboard.

Danger Skis by Jared Nickerson

In the spirit of the season, have a look at the new Danger Skis with graphics designed by Jared Nickerson. The skis are the pro model for skier TJ Schiller and are available now. I really like Jared’s illustration style and the concepts within them. Jared has an impressive roster of clients including Kidrobot, Suicide Girls, Danger Skis, LaFraise and more. The skis are available for purchase now.

Also make sure to check out the desktops Jared did for suicide girls, pretty hot stuff.

Across The Universe Release!

I just got word that Justice’s highly anticipated and hyped documentary A Cross the Universe will be released exclusively on iTunes tomorrow along with thier live tour album. This is the first time iTunes has offered long form music video for download. The documentary that runs at just over an hour long is bundled with the album and can be downloaded for just $14.99. Having been to a couple of these events myself, just watching the clips and trailer from this documentary gives me goose bumps. I think I will be forced to purchase the download from iTunes, as well as the hard copy that will be released on December 9th (which is why they are doing this I am sure). To see brand new clips from the movie click read more below.

Denis Darzacq’s Amazing Photography

When I came across the work of French photographer Denis Darzacq it really struck me. The photos that he takes of his subjects floating in the air are not only baffling, but also quite eerie. The spaces that he chooses really add to the almost supernatural feel of the photos. I almost wish I hadn’t seen how he does it, it kind of spoils the mystery, but it you want to see for yourself check out a short documentary about the process. It’s less of an “illusion” than you might think.

Justice For All Contest

The time is running out on the Justice For All contest. The rules are pretty basic. Put together a video between 30 second and 3 minutes showing how “you were great in 2008″ and post in on Vimeo. It’s as simple as that. The contest is being judged by the Ed Banger crew themselves as well as the Industreate crew. There is over $6,000 in prizes up for grabs, including an all expenses paid trip to Chicago to hang out with Justice themselves and label mate/artist So Me. Get on it becasuse they are only accepting submissions until the end of this month!

55 DSL Logo Remix Contest

During my recent visit to NYC I didn’t get a bunch of time to check out shops and boutiques. However, I did get a chance to stop by 55DSL’s shop, and I was more impressed than I thought I would be. I really like 55DSL’s clothing and the overall feel of the brand. With their recently announced Logo Remix Contest 55DSL has partnered up with Cut&Paste to give you the opportunity to put thier own spin on their brand. Submit your own “remix” of the 55DSL Sheild logo in a way that represents the companie’s culture and spirit and you could have the chance to win 1,055€. Not only that but your remixed logo will be featured on a t-shirt in the company’s 2010 line. Creative people get to crackin’, the contest ends December 5th.

Zune Originals Artist Series

Zune Originals is Zune’s online design studio where you can customize the color, size, engraved artwork and personal text of your player. With tons of different options available they make it pretty hard to select just one design to use. The new Artist Series offers 46 new designs from a bunch of amazing artists such as Dalek, Motomichi, Daniel Jackson/Surface To Air, and more. With so many cool designs available I almost wish they weren’t engraved onto the player, and were printed as some kind of removable adhesive. That way you could choose as many as you like and swap the design when you feel like a new one.

Hooray For Earth – Surrounded By Your Friends (Twin Shadow Remix)

Thursday, October 21st, 2010


Twin Shadow has been making some waves throughout the internets lately. I recently purchased his new album Forget, and I must say I quite like it. I am also really liking this remix he has done for Hooray For Earth, who I had never heard of before this song, but will surely be checking them out after hearing it.

Muscles – Girl Crazy Go (Muscles Inception Remix)

Monday, October 18th, 2010


The last I heard of Muscles he had quit the music business because of problems with his label Modular. This disappointed me because I love his music. However, I was happy to see that if the rumors were true at the time he has apparently changed his mind. A new EP by Muscles titled Younger & Immature is due out October 29.

Here’s a remix of the first single from the EP ‘Girl Crazy Go’. Check out the music video for the original version here. From the sounds of it Muscles hasn’t lost his musical touch, or his ego.

Sleigh Bells – Run the Heart (Bassnectar Remix)

Thursday, October 14th, 2010


Music by Bassnectar isn’t something I would normally post here. For the most part I feel his stuff is for dirty rave hippies, and if you read this blog at all you probably know how I feel about the wobbly bass-heavy Dubstep. That being said this remix done of Sleigh Bells‘ song ‘Run the Heart’ is still bass-heavy, but not completely overboard. It also manages to keep a lot of what makes the original track so good.

Martin Solveig ft. Dragonette – Hello

Tuesday, October 5th, 2010


Chances are if you spend any amount of time on the internet you have heard ‘Hello’ by Martin Solveig featuring the lovely Dragonette (considering it went number one on Hype Machine). But I couldn’t resist posting this super-fun dance-pop masterpiece. It’s basically impossible not to want to dance to this song. I don’t know a lot about Martin Solveig, but from what I have heard and seen so far I am liking his stuff. Purchase the EP with several remixes on Beatport now.

Millionyoung – Local Joke (Neon Indian Cover)

Friday, October 1st, 2010


Millionyoung, aka Mike Diaz, is shaping up to be one of my favorite artist of 2010. I really love this cover he has done of Neon Indian’s ‘Local Joke’. He adds his own personality to the song, so much that it sounds as though he could have written it. I am looking forward to a full-length album from him.
