Custom Nike Sneakers

These custom Nike's by Daniel Reese feature much loved icons from movies, music, art and gaming. Reese has plans to sell his designs in the future for around $280. Well worth the doe I say.

Lifestyles of the Rich and Indifferent

The thing that stands out to me the most about Terry Rodgers figurative paintings if the bored looks on the models faces. Their young, beautiful and rich and spend their time indulging in sex and drugs but it all seems a little dull after a while.

Who says that graffiti and street art can't be good for the environment? The two guys over at Poster Pocket Plants are bringing a natural touch to the urban landscape.

Tron Legacy

This looks pretty intense. Hopefully it's good and Hollywood can take a break ruining all my positive childhood memories associated with TV and film.

Lego Skateboard

At 8"X30" this lego skateboard by Nathan Sawaya is probably better suited for vert riding than street.

Just Plain Wrong

Admittedly PETA tends to take things a bit far sometimes and thus turn a lot of "normal" people away from their cause. However this video they shoot undercover of the Ringling Brothers circus should keep most people who see it from visiting the Big Top.

New Bloc Party Video "One More Chance"

I'm digging the old school house piano line.

The Bike Dispenser

The Bike Dispenser was designed by the Dutch company Springtime. It works petty much the same way the luggage cart dispenser works at the airport. The bikes are tagged so they can be tracked if not returned to one of the many dispensers located at airports, train stations and other popular tourists spots. The cost for 20 hours is around $3.71 making a cheap and easy way to get around. Now if we can get some of these in the US.

Sarah Palin Disrespects The Flag!!

Just in time for the Fourth Of July comes this picture from Runner's World where the Alaskan wolf slayer clearly violates the U.S. Flag Code. The flag should never touch anything under it including the ground, water or merchandise. Sarah why do hate America?

Death Cab For Cutie "Little Brides"

This started out as a fan video but the band liked it so much it's now official. The guy who did this must have tons of free time on his hands.

Design Flaw

Sure we have all seen pictures of buildings that have collapsed due to natural or man made causes. However seeing a building that has just toppled over is a rare sight. This building in Shanghai has just fallen over and remains pretty much intact. Although the cause of the fall is being investigated unstable soil conditions are believed to be involved.

Obey Goes Green

Sheppard Fairey is staying part of the debate, this time by promoting wind power and renewable energy. He hopes to use his newest print as part of an upcoming Green Energy campaign.
