When it comes to social commentary, Freshjive isn’t a brand to bite its tongue. New t-shirts from FJ drive a simple and clear message — America has a few problems. The graphics are direct and strong, focusing primarily on violence.

When Hip-Hop meant something...

The Roots. The most dynamic Hip-Hop group to this day. They are the true essence of Hip-Hop and they are the core that continues to keep it together. If there was a Hip-Hop manual then the lyrics to "What They Do" shop be the first chapter.

Here is a live version of the song. I've been listening to The Roots for a long time and I have never heard this song live.

Here is the actual video.

STPL Commercial

Getting a bit of love from a Staple faithful out in cyberspace, we get a look at a commercial done for Staple Design without it being actually made by STPL. Adding a cool vintage twist the commercial is certainly an instant classic. Check it out!

You have to get this movie. It's a really good guide for the nightlife in L.A., and it's funny too...

Here's a few of my favorite chapters:

I always wanted one to these things.

Homestar Planetarium



Marcus Tremonto from Studio Treluce presents his new work at MATERIALISM, a group show which opened during the London's Design Festival (13-23 September) and is still running at FUMI gallery in London.

These designs focus on image, structure and illusion; working with the materials to create dimensions and layers, carefully composing forms that seem as if they carry on into the space freely and indefinitely. When off these pieces simply reflect and mirror the environment around but turned on they reveal a new world and dimension beyond from both sides.

The Hundreds x Gravis Black Box Collection

This week, Gravis Footwear and LA clothing label, The Hundreds, announce the unveiling of their FW 2008 Black Box collaboration of shoes, bags and accessories. Using a handful of Gravis’ most popular products, The Lowdown Hi-Cut sneaker, Jetway roller bag, Shadow pack, Hold All Trio, and Terminal Case, each piece will be covered in custom Hundreds JAGS print on heavy nylon, with pop fluorescent accents and the iconic Adam Bomb logo.

“We’ve been longtime fans of Gravis, and what they’ve accomplished with their innovative product range within worldwide street culture. So we were very excited to work with them on the BLACKBOX Collection, considering the respected roster of artists and designers who’ve contributed to the program in the past. Furthermore, this was monumental in that it is the first time we are offering The Hundreds branded luggage and our very own footwear.”

Having just moved to the left coast after eight years based in Burlington, Vermont, it was fitting that Gravis partnered up with the LA-subculture-based brand, The Hundreds.

“Gravis is hyped to have worked on the new BLACKBOX Collection with The Hundreds. Together we styled out a collection compliments the personalities of our brands. I love what The Hundreds represents and how engaged they are with their consumer fan base. Their brand philosophy is what makes them what they are today. A true player in the streetwear arena.”

The limited edition items will be sold exclusively at Gravis Black Box dealers around the world and in The Hundreds LA and SF flagship boutiques and their online store come October 2008.
