Kanye West - Amazing (feat. Young Jeezy)

Fonzworth Bentley - Greener (Feat. Anthony Hamilton)

Wow! Thats all I have to say......

“This strain of swine influenza that’s been cultured in a laboratory is something that’s not been seen anywhere actually in the United States and the world, so this is actually a new strain of influenza that’s been identified,” said Dr. John Carlo, Dallas Co. Medical Director

“CDC officials detected a virus with a unique combination of gene segments that have not been seen in people or pigs before,” according to an Associated Press report.

Alarming reports are now filtering in about people catching the illness who have had no contact with pigs whatsoever. These include a man and his daughter in San Diego County, a 41-year-old woman in Imperial County and two teenagers in San Antonio, Texas. In fact, in all U.S. cases, the victims had no contact with any pigs.

“Dr. Wooten says it’s unclear how people were exposed to swine flu. She says none of the patients have had any contact with pigs,” according to the report.

The WHO insists that the outbreak has “pandemic potential” and has been stockpiling supplies of Tamiflu, known generically as oseltamivir, a pill that can both treat flu and prevent infection, according to officials.... ORLY?

It is unclear as to why, if the virus is a brand new strain, that public health officials are so confident programs of mass vaccination, which are already being prepared, would necessarily be effective.

It certainly wouldn’t be the first time that deadly flu viruses have been concocted in labs and then dispatched with the intention of creating a pandemic.

When the story first broke last month, Czech newspapers questioned if the shocking discovery of vaccines contaminated with the deadly avian flu virus which were distributed to 18 countries by the American company Baxter were part of a conspiracy to provoke a pandemic.

Since the probability of mixing a live virus biological weapon with vaccine material by accident is virtually impossible, this leaves no other explanation than that the contamination was a deliberate attempt to weaponize the H5N1 virus to its most potent extreme and distribute it via conventional flu vaccines to the population who would then infect others to a devastating degree as the disease went airborne.

However, this is not the first time that vaccine companies have been caught distributing vaccines contaminated with deadly viruses.

In 2006 it was revealed that Bayer Corporation had discovered that their injection drug, which was used by hemophiliacs, was contaminated with the HIV virus. Internal documents prove that after they positively knew that the drug was contaminated, they took it off the U.S. market only to dump it on the European, Asian and Latin American markets, knowingly exposing thousands, most of them children, to the live HIV virus. Government officials in France went to prison for allowing the drug to be distributed. The documents show that the FDA colluded with Bayer to cover-up the scandal and allowed the deadly drug to be distributed globally. No Bayer executives ever faced arrest or prosecution in the United States.

In the UK, a 2007 outbreak of foot and mouth disease that put Britain on high alert has been originated from a government laboratory which is shared with an American pharmaceutical company, mirroring the deadly outbreak of 2001, which was also deliberately released.

As we reported yesterday, last time there was a significant outbreak of a new form of swine flu in the U.S. it originated at the army base at Fort Dix, New Jersey.

World Trade Center Logos....Preserving history?

curated mag - World Trade Center Logos

New York designer Ji Lee has launched an admirable project to collect and archive photographs of logos that incorporate the twin towers of the World Trade Center. Lee rightly believes this project is vital, as many of the small business won’t last forever. A site is up,, where visitors can add to the growing collection.

Projects like this are important for collecting and preserving American ephemera and visual culture. Worth exploring too, there are some good finds.

Nike Air Yeezy... Black/Grey/Fire Red Colorway

nike-air-yeezy-fire-red-1 Nike Air Yeezy | Black/Grey/Fire Red Colorway

So far we knew three colorways of the Nike Air Yeezy would release. The first one came out last weekend, the next one in May and the last one in June. Now another colorway has turned up at an official Nike event in Taipei - black/grey/fire red. Taking lots of inspiration from Jordan, this colorway will for sure interest many of you. The upper is rather subtle, with the fire red setting the right accents on the sole. We also like the clean patent strap and actually prefer it over the structured ones that are on the current Air Yeezy’s. We are not sure if this colorway will actually release, but we will definitely keep you posted.


The Simpsons USPS Stamps

simpsons-usps-stamps-1 The Simpsons USPS Stamps

Rumors about this appeared a couple of weeks ago, with a lot of people thinking that it was an April Fools joke, but it seems like The Simpsons stamps will actually make it into a post office near you.

“Bart, Homer, Marge, Lisa, and Maggie are being offered on stamps, postcards, letters and Matted GiclĂ©e print. Prices range from $8.80 for a book of stamps, to $59.95 for the Simpson Family Framed Art.”

The sneaker features clear premium leathers on the upper. Furthermore he designed an Air Max 90 Current with some hiking boot accents. So far we only get to these these teaser images, more to come soo

Orchard Street Spring/Summer 2009 Polos

If you are looking for something outside of the norm and do not want to rock again the Fred Perry or Lacoste polos this summer, then make sure to check out the new polo line-up of Orchard Street. The brand produced some nice and solid polos, both uni color and striped, as part of their Spring/Summer 2009 Collection.


William Spencer | In Color....Real Dope

I’ve been a fan of William Spencer since catching him in The Denver Shop’s Hollerado video 2 years ago. Mad people hate on this kid, calling him a novelty act and not a true skateboarder and all sorts of other bullshit, when in fact there is no way to say he is anything less than pure genius or at least pure madness. Further introduction is not needed. This is from The Denver Shop’s latest, In Color.
