Knight Rider GPS



The new show is abysmal, but for Knight Rider die hards and geeks alike I present to you the Mio Knight Rider GPS. Fully equipped with the voice of William Daniels and NOT Val Kilmer (shaking it rough, right?)The unit's LCD display has a series of red LEDs which draws a distinct similarity to that of KITT's nose-mounted lights which makes for a cool little gadget. Priced at $270...It might make your pops happy.

go&d Album Drop - T.I. Paper Trail



T.I.'s 6th studio album marks his comeback, and inevitable incarceration as well. The album strikes a very "careful" tenor, trying not to promote violence, or the drugs. Nonetheless he still manages to deliver the swag, and substance he is known for.

***Favourite Tracks***

All coincidently produced by Drumma Boy...

-What Up, What's Haapenin (Drumma Boy)
-My Life, Your Entertainment (Drumma Boy
-Ready For Whatever (Drumma Boy)

Artwork done by Ian Wright
Which is actually carefully crafted from an assortment of paper. More photos after the jump.

Jermaine Dupri Threw Up on Janet!



This is just hilarious! That Patron will do it to you! (ask me about it!) The PageSix of the NY Post has reported that at JD’s 36th birthday party this past weekend, homie got so twisted that he ended up yakking all over Janet! I’ve had my fair share of unfortunate mishaps while inebriated, but I must say vomiting on someone has, and will (I Hope!) never be one them! WOW…Janet is in the hospital now too! I doubt the two are incidents are related, but would be pretty wild if they were.

My birthday is next week, but I promise babygirl...I won't let this happen to you..err...me!

Ethiopian breaks world record...again.


BERLIN — Haile Gebrselassie broke his own marathon world record on Sunday, becoming the first runner to finish under 2 hours, 4 minutes.

The Ethiopian clocked 2:03:59 to win his third straight Berlin Marathon, beating the mark of 2:04:26 he set last year over the same flat course. He also became the first runner to win the race three times.

"Today, I'm so, so, so happy. Everything was perfect today," Gebrselassie said.

Running under clear, sunny skies in mild temperature, Gebrselassie paced himself well and controlled the race from the start.

The 35-year-old Gebrselassie was way out front as passed through the Brandenburg Gate and ran to the finish line to applause from the crowd lining the route.

Gebrselassie said his training in the buildup to the race was hindered by an injury.

"I had a small calf muscle problem and I stopped for a week, and then I started again a week ago," he said. "Then today I had, you know, some doubts ... but it was really very good."

The Ethiopian praised Berlin and its spectators in helping him break his 26th world record.


How do they do it!? Amazing! LOL Via HuffPo

SCARY!



Someone needs to do one of these but just substitute McCain with Harper, and NBC with CBC!


Despite what you think of the record, the promo won't stop, because it can't stop! Apple iTunes and Kanye has readied the promo video which is all over the net and it can be said to attribute to the very good sales of the single. Drake let me know that the album is crazy...so we can only wait to see where this goes.

Lupe x T.O x 2


My homegirl Taryn will love this! Lupe Fiasco will be hitting T.O, not once, but twice performing both on October 9th (*surprise guest) and October 10th at Circa for the one year anniversary of the club. Lu' is bringing along Matthew Santos, Sarah Greene, and Gemini. The birthday weekend is shaping up to look pretty good!

New Thriller!



MJ is planning another comeback and has instructed all involved in the project that if it isn't better than Thriller, don't bother! Now Michael did release the platinum selling 25th anniversary of the LP last year that featured collaborations from will.i.am, Kanye West and others, but this new album be all original material. Listed as working on the album so far is Akon, and Ne-Yo who is quoted as saying:

"Michael is very nervous as he knows he is the underdog and people want him to fail...This album needs to be better than Thriller. He wants killer melodies"

Let's see what happens...MJ's last disc Invincible has sold 8 million copies to date.

Google partnering with phone carriers to take on RIM and Apple




SAN FRANCISCO — Google and T-Mobile unveiled their answer to the iPhone on Tuesday, pulling the wraps off a slick mobile device that combines a touch screen and a keyboard and is aimed at putting the Internet in the pockets of millions of cellphone users.


The T-Mobile G1, which will be available in the United States on Oct. 22, is the first mobile phone to be powered by Google’s Android operating system. It represents a milestone in Google’s efforts to extend its dominance of the PC-based Internet to mobile phones and further loosen the control that wireless carriers have over what consumers can do with their phones.

Ferrari Superbike



Seen this on Luxist and I recalled how much I had always wanted to get my motorcycle license, but it's just been one of those things that I never get around to doing. Though I am sure that I would make a valiant effort if I had the loot to purchase this bad boy! The Ferrari superbike concept is designed by Amir Glinik and looks straight out of Tron or Akira, has hand controls inspired by F-16 fighter jets, and buttons adapted from the Ferrari Enzo.

This video predates Kanye declaring that his new album "will be 50's favorite album of mine." But it still pretty funny despite the definite loathing of Kanye by some in audience...publicity stunt? We'll see...

This is funny, as I reported that Puma had initially neglected to do any much advertising immediately after the success of Bolt. However, they are now not just embracing Bolt, but the entire island of Jamaica!

Sex And The City DVD Release...and Sequel News?

This is some interesting news some ladies would like. Yeah, I went out and watched this film with my girl opening night. Had to get tickets in advance and everything! But before you go too far in your criticisms, I was a birthday movie date for her, and...the film was pretty good...pause.

However, in news that may or may not also give you pause, the part 2 of film has been confirmed, and is in the works according director/writer/producer Michael Patrick King. A reason to get dressed up and hit the movie theatre again!

DVD available this Tuesday.

"Michael Patrick King thought there would be sequels to "Sex and the City: the Movie."


Thursday night at the Public Library party for the DVD of the film, he and Sarah Jessica Parker confirmed it. He's off to write the next installment. Both SJP and Kim Cattrall told me they're excited to see what he comes up with.

At the same time, Candace Bushnell announced that she's writing a "prequel" to the ladies' lives, taking them maybe from teen through college years to the time they all met.

King told me, quipping, "I'm thinking of doing an animated version of them as babies."

SJP added, "Let's wring everything we can out of this thing!"

It didn't hurt that she was dressed and styled like a modern Audrey Hepburn, and that she worked the pink carpet full of media outside the Library like a pro. There just is not a more gracious movie or TV star around."

Facebook & Myspace Slaughtering The Porn Industry!



I wonder if lotion sales are down too?

Social networking sites are the hottest attraction on the Internet, dethroning pornography and highlighting a major change in how people communicate, according to a web guru.

Bill Tancer, a self-described "data geek", has analyzed information for over 10 million web users to conclude that we are, in fact, what we click, with Internet searches giving an up-to-date view of how society and people are changing.

Some of his findings are great trivia, such as the fact that elbows, belly button lint and ceiling fans are on the list of people's top fears alongside social intimacy and rejection.

Others give an indication of people's interests or emotions, with an annual spike in searches for anti-depression drugs around Thanksgiving time in the United States.

FTL - Christian Louboutin Layered Leather Hobo



I've wanted to pick up speed on something For The Ladies or FTL as will be known as moving forward...And this piece right here definitely something for the ladies. Mr. Louboutin, face for his red bottoms, is now causing a tizzy with his red lined hand bag for the fall. A mean shoe game must be paired with with an bad ass bag, and this is a bad ass! The armadillo inspired bag is available at Saks for $1,995. Start checking the couch crevices.

The World's Most Expensive (Living) Artist.


Despite the economy being in the shitter folks are still making it rain, and one of those folks is British artist Damien Hirst. Pictured above is a life-sized, platinum skull encrusted with 8,601 diamonds totaling 1,106.18 carats, the piece is intended to be a celebration of life according to Hirst. The asking original price was $99 million, and was part of the collection auctioned over 2 days at Sotheby's in London. The two day haul brought in over $200 million catapulting Mr. Hirst to a prestige level of, dare I say, Pablo Picasso and Gustav Klimt.

GQ puts in work for J.Crew.


Editors of GQ put in some QT with J.Crew to put together their favourite looks with peices from the fall collection. I was in Buffalo last week, and stopped in the J.Crew shop, and for the most part, I liked what I saw. As I purchased a couple of neckties, I wondered why they hadn't made the move up north? I can see a J.Crew fitting in rather well in Yorkdale.
