Think about Tom Cruise and what he's all about. Now flip that concept upside down and you will have the enchanting music of Com Truise (one of the many pseudonyms of New Jersey designer/musician Seth Haley).
The nostalgia bit inevitably comes up, so let's get that out of the way. Yes, his songs tap classic sci-fi and proto-electro in a way that is distinctly early eighties in scope. But they're also remarkably weird—stutter-step proggy and intoxicatingly psychedelic, like those classic touchstones got drunk on lava lamp juice inside a pinball machine. After his well-received Cyanide Sisters EP, a grip of remixes for artists like Twin Shadow, Neon Indian, and, uh, Daft Punk, and a few floating MP3s, Truise's first LP, Galactic Melt, has finally entered brainspaces this summer.
Hence the fully blown-out treatment for "Brokendate," which rolls everything from eighties cop noir to Blade Runner retro-futurism to slo-mo Hype Williams nods into one five-minute world unto itself.

With 5x Zoom-NIKKOR ED glass lens, GPS + e-Compass, a new Action Control for easily adjusting settings when wearing gloves and a 16-MP CMOS sensor to record action photos and Full HD (1080p) movies, this tiny tank is one of the hottest products coming up this year from the japanese brand.
It comes in five different colours, including a badass camouflage version which only a real man should handle.

The new Forum Snowboards' video is dropping on October 18th and it's named Vacation. Even if the mighty John Jackson won't be in this one due to an injury, you can still expect some rad shredding from both veterans and youngbloods.
Crack open a cold one, or kick-start the blender and fire up that Piña Colada — it’s time to celebrate! Forum is proud to announce the newest installment in their vast library of team-inspired videos. After winning back-to-back awards for Forever and Fuck It, a little team Vacation was long overdue. This last season was all about taking advantage of traveling on someone else’s dime, and focusing more on good times than hard work. Ironically, when the pressure went down, the progression of snowboarding went up ... way up.

Like a Version is a segment on the Australian radio station Triple J which pops up whenever artists are available and willing to do it, though mainly on the Breakfast show. It involves Australian, and more recently, international artists playing live, acoustic versions of some of their favourite songs. This segment's popularity has led to, so far, the release of six compilation CDs.
Enjoy one of the sweetest moments from the show: The Kooks covering Kids by MGMT. You can find it in on Triple J's Like a Version volume five.

The brand new Nike Air Royal Mid SO is one of the classiest sneaker we've seen in a long time. With regal lineage, this sneaker lives up to its lofty name. There’s Air Max comfort, a unique Stitched Outsole that bonds the upper with the crepe rubber sole and a premium finish that showcases the shoe’s simple (but stylish) aesthetic. The three available colorways—Beachtree, Cool Grey and Black—have bright color pops in the soles, too. Air-Sole units in the heel and a perforated suede upper deliver comfort, breathability and a quick reminder that the Air Royal is part of a very special family..


Runwake's unconvetional animation style is surely weird, and weirdness is what we love.
Cool kids better follow these advices: don't get greedy, avoid idols at all times... and never EVER kill any rabbit!

Danny Trejo always had minor roles untill Machete came out. Well... not exactly. In 2005 he has been the protagonist of Champion, a very inspiring documentary about his crazy life. Even if this is an award winning film and it features stars such as Dennis Hopper, Steve Buscemi and Val Kilmer just a few noticed it. We strongly reccomend to switch off that damn tv and just go for it.
