OK now this is way too cool. So apparently a fan made a fake trailer for a live action Thundercats Movie. The cool thing is that the fan used CGI to alter existing movie footage to place certain scenes into the Thundercats universe. Example: Brad Pit in Troy as Lion-O. Vin Disel in Chronicles of Riddick as Panthro. Hugh Jackman in Wolverine as Tigra. Garfield as Snarf?? This was well done.
"Very much like the DaVinciAudio Labs AAS Gabriel turntable, the Angelis Labor Gabriel turntable looks simply inviting when we take a look at its form factor. The Angelis Labor Gabriel turntable features four separate arms that sit on a platter suspended on a magnetically levitated spindle. The materials used in the making include aluminum, bronze and stainless steel. The turntable and arm are totally decoupled at several points, under the base, turntable and the pin. The orbital starship-like turntable combines state-of-the-art technology with a stunning form factor. Pricing for the Angelis Labor Gabriel turntable falls between $27,000 and $64,000. Audiophiles fancy the quality of vinyl as a musical source and the Gabriel turntable is just right thing if you are serious about aesthetics and audio."
So.... there was a Video release party for Mr. Hollywood DJ'd by Sucio Smash and DJ Evil Dee. In attendance was: Skyzoo, AOK Collective, 9th Wonder, Jean Grae, John Robinson, Tanya Morgan and John Brown. Can you believe I wasn't even there??? *good grief*
Whoa! This is a luxury yacht worth waiting for. Inspired by an oceanic fish, the Oculus is a 250-foot luxury yacht designed by E. Kevin Schöpfer for Schöpfer Yachts LLC. Everything kept aside, the unique shape of the Oculus is awe-inspiring. The exterior styling resembles the jaw and eye socket bone structure of a large oceanic fish. Featuring a reverse bow configuration, the Oculus’ armature offers a perfect blend of symmetry and structure. The luxury yacht can accommodate 12 guests in great comfort and style and can rip the waters with speeds upwards of 25 knots. The interiors of the yacht feature a 12-foot-high ceiling in the main salon, a cylindrical double height dining room, central stairs and elevator tube and floor lighting extensions.
The onslaught that Pacquiao unleashed on the Golden Boy was just embarrassing. Check out the FOUR PUNCH COMBO at 28:15! Damn! It's all good, though. All great boxers have their prime. At least De La Hoya didn't get KO'd...

Many people know Takashi Murakami from the cover art and video he did for Kanye's Graduation album. Here are a pair of sneakers that Murakami actually wore to his show at Miami’s Art Basel. From Hypebeast
I swear, PreZZure drops more mixtapes then Charles Hamilton. Check out the November 4th track where PreZ's uses one of my samples and shouts out my show from that very same date. Historical indeed. From The Purple Pillzbury Doughboy Mixtape

Hyped about the new Wolverine movie? I am....kind of. Will.I.Am. is going to be in it (I know... what are they thinking?). Deadpool is going to be in it. Here are pics of Gambit (played by Taylor Kitsch) and everyone's favorite Canuck. From Superherohype.
I know that everyone has this mixtape already. Just thought that the King's subjects might enjoy an imeem stream of my favorite track. I love this mixtape. It feels like an album. I really love how Colin Munroe goes in on HipHop tracks. I love how the lines of HipHop and indie rock are being blurred now. I think creativity in music is reaching an all time high...
From PreZZure's house. If you're a nocturnal animal like me, you watch a lot of cartoon network at 4am. Aqua Teen Hunger Force is one of my favorite shows. This "Hand Banana" episode is funny as hell (especially really late at night blazed).
