...Vote for a chance to be heard in your country. These interesting photos were taken by Callie Shell from the New York Times.
It was primary morning in New Hampshire. Barack and Michelle Obama had been campaigning separately all week. In the first few months of 2008 their private time seemed to consist of a few crossover moments in back hallways before rallies. This moment was rare and you could tell they just loved being able to sit together. Jan. 8, 2008
While Obama goes over his speech in his head, Michelle and their daughters, Malia and Sasha, check him over. Several minutes later he walked out to announce he was running for President of the United States. Springfield, Ill., 2/10/2007.
Senator Obama was doing press interviews by telephone in a holding room between events. Sometime later as he was getting ready to begin his event, he asked me if I was photographing his shoes. When I said yes, he told me that he had already had them resoled once since he entered the race a year earlier. Providence, R.I., 3/1/2008.

" A blouse can do wonders for a woman. It can take a masculine look and make it feminine. A feminine look and make it masculine. It can be paired with pants, skirts, shorts. And it can take a dull look to brilliance. The fall collections for '08 took blouses another notch up with bowtie detailing at the neckline... "
Ladies she knows where it's at!

" CIPHA SOUNDS DUGG INTO THE VAULT TO FIND THIS NEVER BEFORE SEEN VIDEO OF ROCAFELLA FREESTYLING ON THE FUNKMASTER FLEX RADIO SHOW IN 2001! "
That's the description.
But seriously, this is somewhat reminiscent to watching dinosaurs. No not in the sense that they are old, but more in the sense of we are practically viewing things, rather relationships, that are extinct and NEVER coming back to life.
Still an interesting and unique treat for rap afficianados such as ourselves.
We will have the full video up soon.

" …With his prior difficulties with the law, TI made it his point to emphasize that, while he thought he was ineligible to vote, others needed to get out to the polls to make a difference in their lives and their communities. Recently, he did further research on his own and discovered he was, in fact, still eligible to vote. Going to the polls early this morning in Atlanta, Georgia, was a transformative experience for him.
“Feels like I’ve taken advantage of my right to become a part of the democracy,” declared Clifford Harris aka T.I.. “It was definitely worth standing in line and doing all the things people complain about voting. I think it’s more than worth it.” "

The conspiracy continues.

Uh-Oh! Anyone who has been touting brand The Hundreds gear on their backs know how cool it will be to finally get their hands on the brands most famous signature trademark the "Adam Bomb".
For those not familiar with the trademark logo of the Los Angeles brand just google it for some brief familiarity. All we have right now are shots of the faux "crate" that it will arrive in however look for these to be exploding to a retailer near you very soon.
Back with more detailed pics as they surface.
Wow. Creative, political and funny?
Very abstract idea. The men who brought you the famous "Wassup" catch phrase from the Bud commercials a couple of years ago return with this non Obama endorsed visual short. The short manages to touch on Health care, the oh so wobbly stock market and the soldiers in Iraq fighting for our freedom.

Listen/Download Here. Kanye West - Robocop
There you have it folks, the official cover to Yeezy's latest effort 808s and Heartbreaks according to NahRight
This one wasn't anything like we imagined it would be or sound like. Kanye really needs to come out with a supplementary DVD of some sort to dissect the thoughts and emotions that were developing and going through his psyche at the conception and birth of these records. Seriously we have seen his going ons through a media eyelet, but we must have a basis for these works besides what we may interpret and assume he is going through. These songs are obviously presented as having a deep meaning and shouldn't be taken for surface value etc.. so give us the goods 'Ye.

Designer and maker of those crazy watches that are near impossible to read unless you're in the know Nooka have released a visual masterpiece.
As we've said in the past we love these designs and wished we'd fork over the dough sooner than later because of the grwoing popularity in the brand. In this video piece that they present with direction and animation done by Futuretron Infinity, a melbourne designer, they take creative shots from their latest lookbook and infuse the images with Nooka-esque styling.
Reminds us of those Magic Eye pictures that used to drive us insane..

OK, do you remember when you were a child and you pictured what it would have been like for your favorite cartoon characters to really feel the impact of that crazy fall off that cliff? Or what if there were serious repercussions to that anvil falling on that guys head despite that insanely small umbrella he thought would shield him?
We present James Cauty & SON's exhibit in London:
The exhibit is titled Splatter and is held at The Aquarium in London. Wish we were there to witness in person, we've always subconsciously wondered what the graphic outcome would have been...
Of course he is in no way affiliated with Warner Bros.
