New SBTG: Dead Generals

January 15, 2009

Got a package from SBTG this week. Sick new sneakers, limited to one of 8 hand-stitched and -painted designs. Here’s a peek. Notice the zipper down the front (instead of laces) and the details along the bottom–all hand assembled by hand. Also comes with a distressed one-of-a-kind dogtag listing the production number and brand name.

Also, Mark’s new line, “Dead Generals,” drops January 25th. He sent me a couple shirts and stuff–dope as usual from RoyaleFam. Images can be found here:

ProTools 8: Mike in the Studio

December 10, 2008

Thanks to DigiDesign, I got a chance to preview the new ProTools 8. I made a short new instrumental song on it. Here’s a link to the video, which includes audio of the song.

Sparkart is working on making the videos embeddable. For now, please just put the link up if you want to pass this around.

Kindle Pt.2, Lego Yankee Stadium

October 2, 2008

First, another note about the Kindle: Although it doesn’t read Word documents, it reads email and PDF. They give you a special email address to send things to your Kindle, so if you’ve got something that you want to read on it, just copy and paste it into an email, and send away. I agree about the design; it’s not the most attractive gadget out there. However, if you find yourself having to lug around a lot of books, this thing can be a lifesaver.

Second, a post from our new correspondent:

HOT GADGET: AMAZON KINDLE

October 2, 2008

yo1

this gadget came out a while ago…i have to say, when i heard that there was an “iPod for books” i thought, “maybe, but it has really got to be a great product on a ton of levels…i’ll wait until i see one.”

i just saw one, and i’m a believer.

if you read a lot (or want to), but hate carrying around a bunch of heavy books, this thing is a lifesaver. the face of it literally looks like paper, but it’s a digital screen. it downloads tons of materials, from newspapers to best-sellers, is is smaller and lighter than a single hardcover. no computer needed, no syncing, no cables. it connects to amazon wirelessly (not WiFi, it’s better: it’s on cel-phone like network, available anywhere, and you don’t even need to sign up for a plan–so easy!). you simply order and receive books to read. you can even sample the first chapter of many books, to see if you want to download the whole thing. the kindle even allows you to take notes, and it downloads common file formats like microsoft word, .jpg, .gif, and .pdf–all you have to do is email them to your kindle.

basically, it’s a home-run for amazon.

to buy or read more about it, go it here:

PS – based on seeing this, plus the comments i have heard about this site being slightly hard to read, have led me to a simple re-design…coming soon!

tim ferriss – the 4 hour work week

September 27, 2008

yo1

i really enjoyed the talk with tim…hope you guys did as well. sorry the audio is taking so long to get. i don’t know if it’s going to happen; the blogworld people haven’t seemed really keen on giving the audio out.

incidentally, tim’s book “the four hour work week” was a great read. if you want to learn about ways to cut down your work hours, cut out the unimportant things in your life, still make great money, and use the time you save to pursue the dreams you wish you had more time for, i recommend his book.

for those interested in buying it, do so here:

PS: i’ll give you a little tidbit about the book…the idea of the “new rich” has less to do with obtaining things and money, and more to do with bettering yourself, enjoying life, and doing things that will make a positive impact on the world, while minimizing all the less important nonsense we all get ourselves caught up in (particularly wasting time for the sake of filling work hours). i hope that doesn’t sound preachy…it doesn’t come off that way in the book!
