Matt W. Moore killing Illustrator that I stumble around with

Matt W. Moore has taken doodling to a new level with his various series of eye-catching illustrations and graphics. Vectorfunk 2 is a series of posters that combine line, form and colour in ways that pop – all of which contribute to a sense of action and movement within each piece. The Geometry posters incorporate symmetry, which does not take away from the excitement, but rather adds a kaleidoscopic aspect to MWM’s work. Looking at these pieces feels like being a kid at an amusement park, with access to all the rides, carny games and candy.

CRAZY!... Yeezy's / SB Backpack

Now.. I'm not like a "sneaker head", ya know? But I have a few purrr (Nelly voice) but these Yeezy's are crazy and these are the dopest I've seen. I just found out who this dude, Tinker Hatfield is today but if he did these he has to be pretty good. (He helped design the Air Jordan among other s***... Nike Air Trainer, etc.)

I love bags. Bookbags, messenger bags, duffles.. all of it! I constantly have s*** I need to take w/ me everywhere so I gotta have a dope bag to put it in and not look like the lil second grader w/ the rolling bookbag. But yeah this is crazy as well. Like who didn't like Toy Story when they were little? So put my love for bags w/ my little kid pleasures and im all for it. Nike is trying to get ALL my money for "goin back to school". Like this stuff will be out for me to take to school. Ha! (cool to look at though, no?)

"Hip Hop": Little Brother - And Justus For All

I'm late with this one but ain't no such thing when it comes to good music. The last album Get Back was and is a GREAT album and this one thus far is not a step back from the last. Little Brother are just dope. They give you that old school true to hip hop sound with the "mimicking" the actual boom baps of the Golden Era. Listen if you like please buy it. Hip hop lives if you want it to.

Overdose On Life (Making)

I was feeling this song before I saw the making of it and after I like it more. Like I got the concept before the "making of" but it just has you thinkin that is was you should be "overdosing ON" LIFE! And people that know me may/should know that I o.d on b.s sometimes that I shouldn't let get to me. So this is my motto for month to say the least and what I have been living by but with more focus from here on.

Stupidity! / Boo!

I'm sorry but sometimes ignorance should be expose and shared so we can learn from it. Like what did they prove from takin homie chain? And I don't even like his music like that. You know Wayne or big cousin Travis bought it or he even spent his WHOLE advance on it and what are you gonna get but ppl like me saying you're an ass! You're gangsta! You stole two (probably fake ass) chains from a 100 pound adolescent! You're cool!

DiddyDiddyDiddyDiddy! Wow.. it kind baffles me how sooo many ppl are actually LOVING C3 and calling it "classic". I'm sorry Carter 3 is a "best" a solid album but i disagree. Don't have time to dissect it now but you listen to it and let me know what you think. Classic [ :x ], solid album [ :| ], so so [ :)] or should've bought N.E.R.D.'s new s***?! [ :D ].

I Assassination of Barack O'bama

A controversial art exhibit was raided and shut down before it could be viewed in NYC yesterday.

According to the NY Times blog: Cityroom, Boston-born performance artist, Yazmany Arboleda, tried to set up a provocative art exhibition in a vacant storefront on West 40th Street in Midtown Manhattan with the title, “The Assassination of Hillary Clinton/The Assassination of Barack Obama”.

The artist thought his racist views were protected under the Constitution because he was expressing himself through his art. Wrong.

Not 30 minutes after Arboleda set up the gallery across the street from the New York Times building, police, feds and secret service swooped in to shut the art exhibit down. While police covered the offensive storefront window with brown paper, Arboleda was led away in handcuffs to be “interrogated”.

Arboleda, 27, learned the hard way that freedom has its limits. Later, in an interview, he said: “It’s art. It’s not supposed to be harmful. It’s about character assassination — about how Obama and Hillary have been portrayed by the media.” He added, “It’s about the media.”

I think people have the right to express themselves through art and speech but this is not acceptable. I normally post new music, etc. but there are issue more important than Lil' Wayne's new feature or album. And I original Title of this post was "Freedom or expression or racism?" This def. looks like some racist s*** to me. I don't see how this could be flipped to be about the media or anything but some racist bs. Now this is when I really need your comments. How do you feel about it cause I can get real Huey at times?

Beverly Hills Cop is BACK!? / Common Northwestern Univ. Freestyle / N.E.R.D. Album Art & Tracklist

Eddie Murphy will once again star in the movie franchise that catapulted him to stardom almost 25 years ago, Beverly Hills Cop.

Brett Ratner, whose work includes the "Rush Hour" movies, is in negotiations to direct the film, while Lorenzo di Bonaventura of "Transformers" was tapped to produce the flick, Reuters reported.

I personally LOVED all the Beverly Hills Cop movies and have confidence in this one. (I just hope it isn't Eddie's Rocky Balboa, lol)

Common just kills this lil freestyle. Youtube is the best. W/o it I (we) would miss cool moments like this one so thanks Steve Chen, Chad Hurley and Jawed Karim. And listen to what Coms saying.. crazy.

"Yes We Can!"?

Senator Barack Obama has reportedly secured the Democratic presidential nomination according to the Associated Press.

According to the AP's tally of convention delegates conducted on Tuesday (June 3), Obama has finally received the number of delegates necessary to make him the official Democratic nominee.

He has now become the first Black candidate ever to lead his party into a fall campaign for the presidency.

The AP tally was based on public commitments from delegates as well as more than a dozen private commitments. It also included a minimum number of delegates Obama was guaranteed even if he lost the final two primaries in South Dakota and Montana later in the day.

Senator Hilary Clinton has still vehemently denied reports that she plans to concede this week and accept defeat before the final numbers are in.

I think O'Bama has a "better: chance at winning the Presidency if Hilary is on the ticket w/ him but I dont know if she is the best person for VP. She has def. displayed some ill tactics to even get this far. But it's on O'B not me and I support him so.. yeah, lol
