vintage gear

while writing a blurb for Acapulco Gold’s newly released Lo Lifes shirt, it reminded me of a site I stumbled across called vintage gear addicts. they take the whole Polo-North Face collecting thing to a level that even all you hypebeasts can’t match. I love how they sniff out the rare Polo shit like the sports series and even robes! they even sniffed out the rare North Face (you probably didn’t know there was such a thing). Go check out the site for yourself, and don’t forget to score one of their custom P-Wing Plaques!

thriller

First off, this Punjabi version of Thriller is just too good… But anyway, last weekend was dubbed “future weekend.” I went to the NextFest (which was like a geek-fest of futuristic gadgets and robots) and then the “Laptop Battle” (which you can read about this in my Matt Kelly CD review). The robots were…uhh… OK. Kind of disappointing (I guess we still have a ways to go before some real android type shit.) But it was pretty fun none the less.
Here’s the first “hostess-bot” which is available for rental in Japan (sex-o-roid????)

Then there were the robot DJ’s that SUCK…

The Korean bite off Asimo (with the head of Einstein no less) dancing to MC Hammer’s “Can’t Touch This”…

…and this streetwear bot (camo pants not shown) whose facial expressions were scary as hell…

I don’t think this weekend will be nearly as “futuristic”…
