Ima Cop This NOW!

Starting off as a popular clothing label and later maturing into a full-fledged empire, Marc Ecko has had a strong love for Star Wars which has resulted the recent release of a collection of Star Wars products. Among the items is a Storm Trooper full-zip hoodie. With Halloween just around the corner, these make for the perfect costume.

The Good Life...
Ever wonder how other people's work environments are? Here's a peek into the Google headquarters and the conditions that they work in.

Moving around: A slide allows quick access from different floors. There are also poles available, similar to the ones used in fire stations.

Work Station: Each employee has at least two large screens. Each office only contains 4-6 zoozlers.

Large boards are available just about everywhere beacuse "ideas don't always come when seated in an office" says one Google manager.

Leisure. Pool tables, vieo games etc. are available in many areas.

On each floor, there are private cabin areas where employees can attend to personal affairs.

Professional masseurs are available around the clock.

Rest... This room provides massage chairs that you can control while viewing the soothing aquariums.

My Dream Car...

The Honda CR-Z (Compact Renaissance Zero) is a gasoline-electric hybrid automobile developed and planned for production by Honda. The CR-Z was first introduced as a concept car by Honda CEO Takeo Fukui on October 23, 2007 at the 2007 Tokyo Auto Show. Fukui further announced that a production model is "in the works" and that the car is intended to be "sporty, incredibly efficient and inexpensive." Aside from the fact that it will use Honda's Integrated Motor Assist system, the specifications of CR-Z's drive train are unknown.

rEtrO fIshY tAnk!

The Silverfish Aquarium designed by Octopus Studios is a gnarly looking setup for your fishy little friends. Each 60 gallon setup is custom made, costs $3,400, and is allegedly self sufficient. I think they're freaking awesome and I want one so bad. So so bad. Almost as bad as I want to live in a human-sized habitrail. Which I would give both my nuts for. It'd have all kinds of funs stuff like rope swings, ball pits, cargo nets and pools. Man that would be so awesome. And by 'man that would be so awesome' I mean I'm stoned to all hell. But it'd still be awesome even if I wasn't, I think. Oh my god I think I just saw Jesus riding a Vespa.

[free-duh m]
The state of being free or at liberty rather than in confinement or under physical restraint.

"Freedom is a fragile thing and is never more than one generation away from extinction. It is not ours by inheritance; it must be frought for and defended constantly by each generation, for it comes only once to a people. Those who have known freedom, and then lost it, have never known it again."
   -Ronald Reagan


Some Talent in This World....

I'm No Artist But...

So I got bored after school today so I decided to create this mediocre work of art on photoshop. Definitely not the highest quality of work but I think y'all get the message I'm trying to convey. Still don't know who I'm voting for, by the way.

Mah Boy....

What up what up.

Look out ladies...

So apparently my baby bro decides to record a song on my computer. Unbeknownst to him, I found it and decide it to post as the freshest song posted so far. He jumps on the autotuner for this cover of the original Owl City piece. I guess freshness runs in the family.  =P

Me Gusta....

HAHAHAHA.... I MIGHT hit up this party just cuz of the Advertisment

Diesel has always been known to push the edge with their advertising campaigns, and for their 30th Anniversary party, they’ve definitely taken it to a whole new level. With an original video from SFW Porn, Diesel remixed and overlaid the clip with very clever activities that have similar actions to what would happen in porn such as banging drums and women eating bananas. You probably can’t exactly imagine what I’m trying to describe, so check out the video for yourself because it is creativity at its best.

Federal Reserve chief Ben Bernanke warned Wednesday that the Wall Street crisis is the worst the nation has faced since the end of World War II and urged Congress to take action on a proposed bailout package.

"Where is President Bush?" Sen. Harry Reid of Nevada demanded on the Senate floor. "President Bush has sent Congress an unprecedented $700 billion bailout proposal -- $700 billion straight from the pockets of every single man, woman and child in America."
