Here's some footage of Consequence shooting the video for his single "Whatever You Want" featuring Kanye and John Legend, in Miami. The Fountainbleu Hotel was the location for the shoot. The Fountainbleu is famous because the movie "Scarface" was shot there. The homie Hype Williams directed the video...

Using nothing but legos (and taking up 1,500 hours of there time) Rymdregladge takes us on an “8-Bit Trip.” The stop motion video celebrates the splendid early days of video games. Some favorite characters make cameo appearances and the feel of it is just right as homage to simple two button control.

When someone says "Star Wars design" you probably think of cool spacecraft and nifty, futuristic objects, but SciFi Scanner's John Scalzi points out an amusing fact: Much of the industrial design of the Star Wars universe actually, well, sucks.
I'll come right out and say it: Star Wars has a badly-designed universe; so poorly-designed, in fact, that one can say that a significant goal of all those Star Wars novels is to rationalize and mitigate the bad design choices of the movies.
Why doesn't Luke wear a seatbelt? Shouldn't lightsabers have certain basic safety features? Why does the Death Star have an open tunnel leading directly to a combustible central reactor? And why does the Emperor have a dangerously deep open shaft right next to his throne, with no handrail of any sort?

Sketch-3D is an interactive, integrated software/hardware system that enables users to create their own anaglyphic 3D drawings. By using a ubiquitous interface metaphor (the "Etch-a-Sketch"), Sketch-3D allows anyone to participate in generating stereoscopic imagery in a way that is simple and engaging. In addition to the personal experience, Sketch-3D can be scaled to work with any output device from large scale projection to plasma displays to an integrated LCD. This versatility allows for Sketch-3D to be tailored to fit a wide array of installation environments.
No word on how to erase it, but we're guessing you have to get two people to rip it off the wall and shake it vigorously.

The film will be available on iTunes September 8th.
P.S. This was really a dream come true for me to be involved with this project. I mean, the whole Hollywood factor is a given, but as a skateboarder, to be in a film directed by the Legendary Spike Jonze, and guest starring the whole GIRL Skateboards crew is just amazing.
Thanks for putting me in the film Spike and 'Ye!

When I saw the homies Ben and Bobby Hundreds' 2-page spread in there, I was like "Yo let"s stop up in The Hundreds Store and show'em some love"...
It's good to see your homies blow up!

Geoff Rowley introduces a new trailer for Flip Skateboard's new video "Extremely Sorry". The trailer features the Columbian Kid, David (dah-veed) Gonzales, killing it on a mini-ramp like it's just a curb or something...
The homie Maestro went down to Orange County to hit the Flip HQ a little while ago to chop it up and skate the Flip Park with Geoff Rowley and a few other guys in the Flip family...
