Channing Tatum and Jonah Hill are teaming up once again for the sequel to 21 Jump Street. This time around the duo will be taking their talents to college. We can only hope that this will be as entertaining as the original.
As the name suggests, the folks over at the Hip Hop Art Project are creating rad art relating to Hip Hop. Grounded in the classics but with some contemporary flair, and basing their posters on song lyrics, these highly detailed portraits offer a nice replacement to the cliche album posters that litter dorm rooms. Peep their posters and the lyrics that inspired them after the jump and on their website.
With march madness coming to a close, what are you to do in the intermittent week and a half without high-stakes tournament basketball? Thankfully, we have a solution: look at GIFs from teams that are in contention to make the NBA Playoffs.
You wouldn’t think that modern day rappers would share many similarities with ancient works of art, but you would be wrong. NYC-based art historians Cecilia Azcarate and Ferdinando Verderi have created a brilliant Tumblr account that pairs rap artists alongside classic pieces of art. The mash-ups highlight fashion trends that the two parties seem to share. I guess it’s true, fashion does repeat itself.
Last year Zach Braff launched a Kickstarter campaign seeking funding for a new movie. The actor received a lot of criticism for using the service when he himself is an accomplished actor with ties to Hollywood. Regardless of the criticism, Braff was able to raise around $3 million dollars to fund his project and it looks like he put that money to good use. The film received great reviews after debuting at Sundance. Now we finally have the official trailer for Wish I Was Here. Take a look.
I love a good photo contest. It really brings out the creativity in people.
Here’s a couple new colorways in the Flyknit Racer model that will release this Summer. The Flyknit Racer is definitely one of the harder models in the Flyknit family to get your hands on, but they’re definitely worth the money & trouble. Look for these to release in the next month or so.
Action Movie Kid is an online gem that started a month or so ago. This pretty awesome dad, who happens to be an editor, started editing these little clips of his son to make it seem like he was in an action movie. This is a compilation of all the videos he’s made so far.
This is pretty cool. Using Google Street View these classic album covers are meshed with the actual location they were shot in.
Can you imagine what it would have been like to be 7’5″ in high school? Hell, just imagine what it would be like to be 7’5″ at any age. I’m sure this dude catches a lot of flack, but with how much Tacko Fall dominates the paint, I’m sure he brushes that dirt off his shoulders like it’s nothing. Dude makes a basketball look like a tennis ball, and the goal look like it’s 3″ shorter.
adidas has really been shaking things up with a lot of recent releases. I’ve been really impressed with the silhouettes and materials they’ve been introducing. This is the ZX 900 Weave, and there’s 5 new colorways that release for this year’s Spring/Summer season. These are available now at Foot Locker Europe.
