Your Daily Dose of Dopeness
Sports team introductions are a critical component of any competitive sporting activity. They’re supposed to pump your team (and fans) up while intimidating opponents. However, introductions don’t go as planned and thats how you end up with these seven breakaway banner fails…
I’ve never seen Obi-Wan Kenobi’s house, but if I had to guess, it would probably look just like this place. This pad, which is located in Korea, was designed by Moon Hoon to look like a spaceship. The interior is a little less modern than the exterior but it’s very nice nonetheless. One of the coolest features is probably the floor-to-ceiling bookshelf that doubles as a secret door. Take a closer look at the residence below.
It was announced this week that Universal Studios has agreed to let the famed Nike Air Mag from Back To The Future be sold as a Halloween costume. The costume version of the Air Mag’s are not an actual Nike shoe (they feature no Nike branding), but they still look pretty legit for a movie replica. The Universal Studios endorsed kicks feature light-up soles, a USB connecter, and a collector’s edition box. They are being sold for $100 a pair. That’s not bad compared to thousands of dollars people were paying for official Nike release of the futuristic shoes.
OnCue recently released his newest project, Angry Young Man, which features this single “Way Too Far.” Today he dropped the visuals for the standout track that was produced by Maki, Just Blaze, and Frequency. Angry Young Man is available for download now.
Luxury, power, and gorgeous. Those are pretty much the best 3 words I could use to describe the new 2015 Mulsanne Speed from Bentley. Not too many sedans can go from 0-60mph as fast as the Mulsanne Speed, which hits 60 in just 4.8 seconds. Other attributes include two-tone interior, and 21″ wheels. Bentley will officially announce the new automobile next month at the Paris Motor Show.
Christopher Chann put together this video of him doing skateboarding tricks, and then put it in slow-motion to give you a closer look at how the tricks are performed. Videos like this make me wish I would have tried a little harder when I was younger. So dope.
KRINK has teamed up with Modernica to put their touch on a modern classic, the Fiberglass Side-Shell Chair. The chair is rather neutral upon first look, but once you get closer you can see the details of classic KRINK silver throughout. Available now on Modernica’s webstore for $395.
Yesterday, Nike held an event to officially unveil the all-new LeBron 12 model. The LeBron 12 is designed to enhance LeBron’s explosiveness while combining three key benefits: superior cushioning, harnessed support, and natural flexibility. There’s an initial 7 colorways that will be releasing with the first one being available on October 1st. The LeBron 12 will also be available on Nike iD.
I know they’re just base-jumping, but this seems like something you would see in a movie. To help get their parachute gear past security, this extreme sports teamed dressed up as priests so they could base jump off the tallest building in Poland. Amazing.
