Sk8brd is unleashing his brand new kicks this Saturday
Before Kanye West’s fallout with Nike CEO Mark Parker, leading to the abrupt limited release of his “Red October” Yeezy IIs and his signing with Adidas late last year, Pharrell Williams was the apparel line’s big “Hip-Hop” signing, and he’s officially unveiled his new Adidas shoe line, which will be retailing this weekend at select locations.
Packershoes.com has announced that the new shoes, which are pictured below in all three available colorways, will be available on their website at Midnight EST, and Pharrell’s BBC site, gave a sneak peek of the shoe’s insides, announcing that their flagship will have the shoe available this weekend.
How much will it cost you to rock the Adidas Sk8brd P’s (that’s not the official name of the shoe, we just think it’s cool)? $150. Not bad at all.
Sneaker heads are going to sing “Happy” straight through the weekend.
Director Dikayl Rimmasch Goes On the Run with Music’s Power Couple
Two American outlaws speed through the Californian desert in a dusty 1960s Pontiac GTO with a manifest poise and stylish swagger that could only be embodied by the world’s foremost musical couple: Beyoncé and Jay Z. Directed by the New York-based filmmaker and photographer Dikayl Rimmasch and soundtracked by an Ennio Morricone classic, Bang Bang is a trilogy of short films starring Mr and Mrs Carter that appeared throughout their two-and-a-half month long tour, On the Run, which celebrated its finale on Saturday at Stade de France in Paris. Rimmasch was introduced to Beyoncé and Jay Z via Mark Romanek, and with a creative cohort in the war photojournalist William Kaner put together a filmmaking approach and aesthetic inspired by French new wave cinema and the powerful intimacy of legendary independent director and mentor, Les Blank. Rimmasch’s stripped-back process paid dividends, allowing an incredibly fast, shoot-from-the-hip style using custom camera rigs that he had designed, 50-year-old Russian lenses and lighting effects by Archie Ciotti and Scott Spencer. Below, we’re in conversation with the steadfast director—also known for his black-and-white campaigns for RRL by Ralph Lauren—about Bang Bang’s conception and what it’s like to direct contemporary music’s most iconic performers.
What were you immediately looking to capture with these films?
Dikayl Rimmasch: What is it about when you watch Godard’s Breathless? What is it with French new wave that everyone responds to? It is a magical moment in cinema, and the whole point of it was to not be so encumbered by the production that Hollywood and France had adopted. It was a resistance to that machine. Jay’s a New Yorker. He came up through everything and I really trusted that he would get that. I went into the shoot with that mentality.
You shot at a breakneck speed over the course of only two days. What was that process like?
DR: Just before we started shooting on the first day, I was introduced to Beyoncé and Jay Z in their trailer. They didn’t really know what I was going to do, so I said, “I’m going to shoot for five minutes. Were going to process the footage, I’ll bring it back for you to look at it and that’s basically what the footage is going to look like.” We picked a very particular, beautiful moment with Beyoncé in the mirrors, we processed the footage in a couple minutes and brought it back, and she thought it was beautiful. Jay Z came out and we shot for five minutes, with him and the cigar, and did the same thing. I was shooting with these old Russian lenses, there was no monitor, there wasn’t anyone standing behind me and we started cranking along like that.
How did you capture the subtle humor and candidness?
DR: It was a thrill to photograph the scene with Beyoncé in the hotel room so intimately and get those moments. There’s this footage screened on On the Run from Jay Z’s 40th birthday party and home footage of Beyoncé traveling. That to me is still the most powerful stuff. At the end of the day they have all the human behavior that everyone else has.
How did you work the Bonnie and Clyde story in a new way?
DR: In my first conversation on the telephone with Jay Z he explained his concept of On the Run. He said: “We’re not trying to do this literally, it’s not that we’re Bonnie and Clyde. We’re on the run from everything. On the run from becoming a cliché. On the run from doing the same thing again.” Everything he mentioned was a level of consciousness he has for staying alive as an entertainer and as a human being. He wanted to keep it more abstract because for him it was very abstract. How do you stay new, not just to your audience but also yourself?
Did you see how the tour shows turned out?
DR: It was amazing what they did with the footage. Beyoncé’s creative director Ed Burke puts these shows together and he was really supportive of what I was doing and key in masterminding how this whole thing got executed. I knew what the chemistry had to be between myself and the two of them. But behind me were a few bulldozers pushing things. One was the production that was very well organized and the other was the tenacity of Ed Burke just saying, “Do it.”
What did you take away from the experience?
DR: Beyoncé and Jay Z are two very intelligent, insightful and thoughtful people, in an almost low-key way. Which is how they got to where they are. They are very aware of people’s attitudes and what energy they are bringing. Once you fully realize that, then the pressure comes off and you just have to do what you’re good at.
Check back tomorrow for Bang Bang Part Two. On The Run Tour: Beyoncé and Jay Z premieres on HBO September 20 with an exhibition and screening at Clic Gallery New York on September 19.

At the Salt Lake Comic Con this past weekend, Marvel Comics legend Stan Lee was asked about the recent changes to the Avengers, including the Falcon taking over for Captain America.
“He took over for Captain America? Well, that was a temporary thing,” said Lee. “It’s not as though we’ve lost Captain America. I promise you he’ll be back.”
Lee continued, “See, they make all these changes….I understand they’re going to have Spider-Man or rather they’re going to have Gwen Stacy or maybe Mary Jane if she comes back again bitten by a radioactive spider, and you’ll have Spider-Woman. I heard somebody talking about that. I don’t know if that’s true or not.”
Lee went on to offer this explanation of why these type of changes in general are made by publishing companies or movie studios.
“You see, when you have a comic book company, you’re publishing so many books every month, and it’s month after month after month, and you want to keep the readers,” said Lee. “And when you have movies you have one movie after the other, just like the James Bond movie every couple of years. And you have these conferences and you say, ‘What can I do that will surprise the fans and make them want to learn more about the characters?’ So you say, ‘Let’s kill one of them and we’ll bring them back to life,’ or, ‘Let’s take this one who’s an American and make him Chinese.’ I mean anything that they think of that they figure will make the fans talk about it and get interested.”
We consume so much sugar that’s not even real, natural or organic, and is probably one of the worst possible things we can eat. It has a number of detrimental health effects that include diabetes and cancer, just to name a few.
It became popular in the United States in the late 1970’s because it was a much cheaper alternative to regular cane sugar. On average we are consuming 27 teaspoons of sugar per day, while the recommended daily allowance from the American Heart Association is no more than six teaspoons a day for the average woman and no more than nine for the average male. Why are we consuming so much sugar? And why exactly is sugar added into almost everything we eat?
It’s no secret that junk food is designed to be addictive, and that the sugar within it literally kills you.
In the video below, BBC journalist Paxman shows a Coca-Cola boss just how much sugar is in their drink. It’s quite entertaining, given the fact that there is absolutely no justification for just how much sugar they put into their
Our world is full of harmful substances that we constantly consume on a daily basis. It’s hard to believe that these substances (like coke) are mass marketed and made to be heavily addictive. The Coca-Cola corporation is promoting sickness, and the dumbing down of society. How any human being can promote something that kills us is very confusing to me.
At the end of the day, regardless of how addicting and harmful they are, you still have a choice not to consume it. You have to be the change. These corporations hold no power, the power lies within all of us. Without us, there is no them.

Akai Pro, one of the leading performance controller manufacturers have introduced their new Ableton Live controllers for the musician, composer, and mobile performer: APC40 II, APC Key 25 & APC Mini.
Cumberland, RI, USA—March 11, 2014. Akai Professional (akaipro.com), a leading innovator of music performance and production equipment, announces three new Ableton Live controllers— the APC40 mkII, APC Key 25, and APC mini. In 2009, Akai Professional partnered with the creators of Ableton Live, a powerful performance and production software environment, and introduced the original Ableton Performance Controller. With the debut of the APC40, Akai Pro raised the standards for controller design and revolutionized Ableton Live software and hardware integration. Akai Pro now unveils the reimagined APC40 mkII along with two compact Ableton Live controllers—APC Key 25, and APC mini.
Akai Pro’s flagship Ableton Live controller, the new APC40 mkII, incorporates five years of user feedback into its design for extended functionality, countless musical capabilities, and improved workflow. The APC40 mkII features a 5×8 RGB LED clip-launching matrix, assignable A/B crossfader, 8 rotary knobs, 8 channel faders, and a send button for quick access to send busses. Included with the APC40 mkII is a suite of software, samples, and loops for out-of-the- box electronic music production: Toolroom artist launch packs, Prime Loops sample packs, Hybrid 3 by AIR Music Technology, and SONiVOX Twist give users endless music production possibilities with hand-selected samples & loops and high-definition virtual synthesizers. The APC40 mkII is USB-powered and supports plug-and-play.

The APC Key 25 comes mapped to Ableton, but can also be used as an all-purpose MIDI controller.
