A documentary on rap music and its rise to global prominence.

SomethingFromNothing2

If you have any inclination to hip hop then you will love this movie, its about the art of hip hop & rap over the past 40 years with an inside view from Ice T. Going from the East Coast to the West Coast, you get a taste of all the talent and what they did to get where they are, and what they believe in and what is there process for their art form. Honestly it was amazing watching some of them freestyle like that, watching Q-Tip, Run DMC, Eminem, Dr Dre, Red Man, and so many other talented people in this documentary doing their thing is inspiring and a must watch for anyone who loves music.

Ubiquitous – The Most Masculine Office I Have Seen

Ubiquitous1

I always like seeing these crazy offices and its usually the tech companies that have them, but this time it comes from Ubiquitous, a communication company, I think marketing and branding. They have made the most masculine office I have ever seen, it looks like an old gentlemen’s club where people should be smoking cigars and drinking whiskey, not people working on computers. It’s rare to see an office using black walls and dark wood, but this place got it right, I wouldn’t mind working in an office like that.

Voltron – Monstariam

Any art work from the 80s anime show will surely get my blood pumping, and that is exactly what Mosntariam has done. They went ahead with some cool retro Voltron work and it looks amazing. I checked out the other items they had some of them are pretty cool, I got the Jungar piece as a gift so I was always looking for something cool. Then I saw the Voltron pieces and ordered them all, it was insanely cool to get them.

I asked for all colors of the print including the one with all of them combined. This was delivered in Kuwait in some very cool packaging, I liked what they did and then they delivered it to my office in a few days after I ordered the prints. Now all I need is the wall space to place all this amazing work, there are too many things hanging on the wall at the moment, I need more office space.

Welcome To Da 90s

PauseDa90s is dedicated to the pop culture of the 90′s, when the Bulls were the champs, when Sega made hardware, when neon and Hulk Hogan reigned supreme, and when Vanilla Ice qualified as a rapper. Man this video brings back memories. This is how we live back in the day, how portable was, and we loved our games. Back when WWE was really called WWF!

Animation Station Collectibles

I’m always interested about new Anime & Comic stores opening up in Kuwait, this one concentrates on a lot of old school shows like Grendizer, Getter Robo, Sanshiro, and a lot of other cool stuff. Its like an open Kiosk/Shop on the first floor in Discovery Mall, just behind you on the right as you go up the escalator.

Whats very cool is you can tell these guys are passionate about it, there was a lot of cool Grendizer stuff, and I had to pick up something while I was there, also I have to keep in mind that I don’t have much space to put stuff on any more, still they had a Ken Resin Statue which I haven’t seen in a while. They also had the Fewture Sanshiro – Jamaro model that I have which you don’t see often and I’m assuming it will fly off their shelves soon enough. If you have a chance its very much worth it to pass by the store, the pictures don’t do it justice, lots of fun stuff.

Senshiro Jumaro – Model

The kids of the 80s will know who this is instantly, Senshiro and Jumaro from the robotic wrestling show of the 1980s. This is when KTV was at its finest, they had amazing animated cartoons from Japan even before Europe and North America did, we were ahead of the curve with so much types of media. And I remember it so fondly this was one of the shows that I cherished, who wouldn’t have wanted a robot as they were a kid that can kick ass. Usually I prefer watching anime in Japanese but I saw a few episodes of Jumaro a while back and watched them in both Japanese and Arabic, and by far the Arabic was much better. Surprisingly the anime had a few risque drawings in the Anime from back in the 80s, it shows that we were more open back then.

Thanks to Fewture models I was able to find the Jumaro model, and whats great about their models is that they are made from metal and molded to the perfect form. The model is fully moveable joints while made out of metal, and Jumaro looks everything like the animated series, if not better then the series. Didn’t take long to unbox and put together, I placed next to the other Japanese & Fewture models on my shelf. The only thing left to make this the perfect model is for him to have A.I. and move based on my telepathic commands.

Check out this YouTube for the intro video to Senshiro.

Silhouette Typography Posters

One way to remember movie quotes with these posters, the combo of typography with iconic pop culture references from Jerod Gibson really puts the movie together for you. I’m a fan of pop art and I enjoy these cool movie posters, and it can be applied to laptops, iPhones, and clothing. My favorite ones being The Hang Over & Star Wars.
