Nike Dunk High "DJ AM"

"Right before his tragic death, news came out that DJ AM had been working with Nike on a Dunk sneaker collection. Today we can show you some detailed images of one of them. The Nike Dunk High Premium Quickstrike “DJ AM” comes in a black/red colorway with reflective 3M accents. The red comes in regular premium leather and the black comes in patent leather. The Swoosh is light grey. The heel features a perforation that can be removed to reveal reflective 3M. The tongue of the sneaker is decorated with a DJ AM logo tag. The sneaker is now available from Kasina." Via :highsnobiety

Charlotte Gainsbourg - Heaven Can Wait from Charlotte Gainsbourg on Vimeo.

Crazy artistic way of shooting a video. Some may say that too many ideas in a video is bad, but i feel it can be magic. I've watched this 7 times before posting it and catch something new each time. Plus the song is equally great.

Tim Burton x Museum of Modern Art Exhibit

“Following the current of his visual imagination from early childhood drawings through his mature work, the exhibition presents artwork generated during the conception and production of his films, and highlights a number of unrealized projects and never-before-seen pieces, as well as student art, his earliest non-professional films, and examples of his work as a storyteller and graphic artist for non-film projects. The opposing themes of adolescence and adulthood, and the elements of sentiment, cynicism, and humor inform his work in a variety of mediums—drawings, paintings, storyboards, digital and moving-image formats, puppets and maquettes, props, costumes, ephemera, sketchbooks, and cartoons. Taking inspiration from sources in pop culture, Burton has reinvented Hollywood genre filmmaking as a spiritual experience, influencing a generation of young artists working in film, video, and graphics.”

The exhibition is on until April 26, 2010, so make sure to pass by! - AP

Chauffeur- Soles of Fire [Live from Levi's/Fader NYC]

For those of you who don't know the buzz around Chauffeur, I'll make it simple. Mark Ronson + Theophilus London + Sam Sparro = Chauffeur. Fair enough with one single already buzzing on blogs, the group looks promising. Playing an eight minute set at the Levi's/Fader event simply because of the lack of material although it is one hell of an eight minute set. Check them out and be on the lookout for much more to come.

Remember? - Horace Grant

He was the man! Goggles and slick moves led Horace Grant to be the unsung hero in the 90's for NBA teams like the Bulls and Magic.

Chester French - Calle Ocho (Remix)

Enjoy, these guys keep music the way it should be fun. They care mucho about their fans and their interaction is good to see. As their fan base grows, so does Chester French's creativity. Good to see these guys doing what they want no matter what it is. Wonder if Pitbull got a glimpse of this yet!


Song of the Week- Julian Casablancas "11th Dimension"

The Strokes frontman, steps out into the world of solo artists. Leading single of the album Phrazes For The Young. This is a total unexpected turn of expectancy, not the average Indie-Rock, Strokes song. I find this song brilliantly pieced together with an 80's touch of rock-dance sounds. This leads me to give a 4 out of 5 Stars. Go support music!

Supra Skytop 2

Supra has been going through huge growth over the last couple of years and a lot of that growth can be attributed to their flagship high top sneaker – the Skytop. Today Supra announced the Skytop 2. It will be revealed this coming July at the Agenda tradeshow for the first time. Let’s hope it will follow in the footsteps of its predecessor.
