The New Batman Trailer Was Just Released And Holy Shit

Fucking amazing.

Artist Fernando Reyes (@cmykvsrgb) Debuts LOST & FOUND Vol.1 - Fashion of 1972

My friends are ridiculously talented. Nothing more to say about that. Shout to Fern.

A few years back a good friend of mine came across a box full of kodachrome slides. The slides told stories of friends, families, parties and cars with imprinted dates ranging from may 1979 to february 1982. I was fascinated by the look and feel of these images and did some high resolution sigma scans. The first set of images show a fashionable party dated may 1979.

There's a couple more images to check out here, as well as some before & after comparisons.

T.Shirt Drops A Verse On @asvpxrocky's "Goldie", Produced by @HitBoy_SC

New album in May.

is it equal parts what I do mixed with how the fuck I do it
or is more just me, and nothing to do with the music?
fluent in body language, you niggas need to cool it
holding your breathe around me now you looking a little blueish
foolish pride, foolish, get some bitches to fool with
get money, do what you love, stop fucking around and do this
people on the sideline looking a little ghoulish
my girl plays her cards right I'm looking into jewelers
Blueroom stupid, smoke thick as my denim
you niggas is losing it, you all sound like you're settling
blue jeans, red eyes, whole style like raspberry
skin looks like the shit was made out of Cadbury 
Happy Easter to you muhhfuckas, peace you muhhfuckas
happy summer, don't talk to me on the beach muhhfuckas
and I'm gonna be with some pieces so stay the fuck from my towel
no photos allowed unless you Ricky Powell

Tyler, The Creator Speaks To Oyster #98

Great interview.

Do you do tons of drugs? 
No, I’ve never had a drink in my life. I mean, I troll people and tell people I do drugs, but truthfully I don’t. I’ve never had a drink in my life. I don’t smoke or anything. 

I don’t know. It’s just not for me. I just don’t have to. Plus, growing up at the skate park, there were a lot of kids that had so much potential to be pro — like, they were my age and they could have been pro by the time they were, like, 20, and they just got caught up in the party and drinking life and now they’re failures. I vowed never, ever to become one of them. It’s just not me.

"Seeking a Friend for the End of the World" (Official Trailer)

White Mountaineering Flower Camo Sneakers

Them good folks at Reed Space just got these in to the shop and threw a preview up on their Instagram. I gotta say, holding them in my hand they're pretty great.

Fuck rent, shop Reed.
