Oh snap! The trailer for the new Wolverine movie dropped today and hoooollly crap it looks sweet. The movie tells the origin story of Wolverine, starting out with his childhood, fighting in a shit ton of wars (cuz he’s over 100 years old) and finally how he ended up with his adamantium skeleton. The movie features a ton of comics from all over the X-Men universe like Gambit, who is featured prominently in the trailer and is one of my favorite X-Men ever. There’s also gonna be Deadpool, The Blob, a young Storm, possibly that dude in the wheelchair from the second film, and the White Queen, who I’m hoping they bring over to X-Men: First Year to be a teacher.
Typohpile has a new Type Battle up, this one centered around creating a book cover, with the subject of the book chosen by the random Wikipedia article chooser. But that’s not all! You then have to search the keywords from your title through the LIFE magazines photo archive that Google put up, and use one of the images that come up using those parameters… does that make sense?
Anyhow, I thought I’d try it out and I ended up getting Horns of Ock Street, which was from an incident in the 1700′s where a bunch of crazy guys roasted an ox and then had a fight over the horns. The Ock Street guys beat the Vineyard Guys, so they got to keep the horns and put it over their bar, er something. So I found this sweet photo of horns and made it colorful. Ta da!
You can still enter, I’m not really sure when the battle ends, but if you do, leave a description and link to your entry in the comments, I’d love to see what everyone else does.
This is just nuts. The image above is from a patent that Apple submitted that explores the ideas of three dimensional desktops… like a real fake computer desktop. I highly highly doubt this will happen any time soon, but if anyone can take a good crack at this kinda thing it would be Apple. For right now the idea seems like a big cardboard box, which isn’t really that exciting, but ideas have to start somewhere. The fact that they’re even tossing this idea around is thrilling to me.

Haven’t posted a cool bike in a while, and this is one frigging awesome bike. It’s a Granturismo by Abici, and Italian company that been hand making bikes for decades now. The bike is constructed from aluminum making them lightweight, and features an enclosed casing to protect your legs from getting greasy or F-ed up. I think the light gray color of the bike is also pretty sweet, like the color of that Deerfield weekender bag. They also have a sweet Brooks saddle and matching leather tape for the handle bars, which look damn sexy to me.
Lost Cause (Live) by Beck and The Flaming Lips
Sea Change was definitely one of Beck’s most melancholy records, recorded around the time he broke up with his long time girlfriends. But I love this sweet live version he did with The Flaming Lips on KCRW, almost a 360Âº for the song. Instead of being sd, it’s turned into an upbeat country ballad, making it almost seem sweet and endearing. I’ve thought about sharing this for a while, so I thought I’d throw it out there for ya’ll.
