Posterchild's new project using the "Stained Glass". He placed a variation of the Stained Glass over HD screens installed over subway entrances in New York. It basically difusses the light of the screen and turns the video ads in an animated stained glass piece.

Flying Lotus - a new sound coming outta Los Angeles. Electronica-Dub-Laptop based music. Smooth as anything.
The motherfucking Gas Lamp Killer, also from L.A. creates psychedelic-soul-dub hop with a hint of craziness. Just released on the newly formed Obey Records.
J Dilla (Jay Dee) R.I.P. This hip-hop producer was so fucking talented and to have him taken away from us at the tender age of 32 is really sad and a huge loss to the hip-hop community. An amazing artist, whose collaborations with the likes of Madlib (They created Jaylib) will forever be one of my ultimate fave albums.
If you actually owned a Delorean, would you want to give it monster wheels & chassis? persoanlly, I wouldn't, but this nutter has obviously decided that bigger is better when you go back to the past and into the future.
(Mad Max would have loved this as his car ;)

Ive been really interested to see how the relatively new style of writing in Chinese characters would evolve over the years. Some of the guys I know, who are trying to promote the interest of Chinese-styled graffiti are Otoss, Xeme, C# & Redy.
The cool thing about panting Chinese is that you can paint a character and it means the same as a full English word. So if you put two or more Chinese characters together, it would be the same as a whole English sentence. The potential for strange tag names is huge.
Although it is in its infancy, I reckon its always a good thing to try and apply influences from your own countries cultures to help progress creativity.
C#, Otoss, Facts, Xeme
Normally, I'm not a big fan of Bearbricks, (I only own one 400%), but Dr. Romanelli smashes it with his latest design. Approx. £12 for the small set and £27 for the 400% (28cm tall) version. Not bad going for such a retarded looking bear!

The tattoo artist needs to be armed with a gun/machine/iron that can translate his concept to the skin and I think that these various machines look and probably work wickedly!
A bit of Steampunk/Death Metal aesthetics by Bernhards Garage Irons. I absolutely love these designs!
Tattoo Gun design by Don Morley
Palm OS Robotic Tattoo Machine
Home-made Prison Tattoo Gun.
And for all those Toy Tattoo Artists, here's something you should probably start on first!
This product targets the entire 1.3 billion Chinese population. Each aspect of the hardware derives from an oriental inspiration which improves the PC experience for the targeted market. The hardware features a “No CPU, No Hard drive, No Graphics Card and No Sound Card” concept. These PC components are stored in a Service Provider of the new infrastructure.
Thus, subscribing to a plan of the Service Provider will allow the use of these components. The data from the components is then wirelessly transmitted to the user’s hardware. Thus, all PCs are administered by the Service Provider. MADE stands for Massively Administered Digital Entities.
A very original idea and a great take on the fact that everyone knows how to use chopsticks in China. Let's see if this idea makes it off the drawing board.
