Vintage All Around

The (ostensible) owner of this cool website left a comment on our blog and automatically entered himself to WIN A FREE SUBSCRIPTION TO DWELL.

I found it relevant to include his website in the MNP hall of records for its general gangsterness.




Vintage Cars, Vintage Clothes, Vintage Toys and Vintage Bikes? Definitely my kind of party. Another thing I noticed about this site is they have like 33,000 images. Perfect for bloggers looking for old stuff.

tokyo urban cammo

Todaya€™s New York Times includes an article on the efforts of Aya Tsukioka, an a€oeexperimental fashion designer,a€A to allay Japana€™s growing fears about street crime by creating a new line of clothes and accessories that double as urban camouflage. In a moment of panic, you can transform your dress into a vending machine, your backpack into a fire hydrant, and your purse into a manhole cover. The idea is for the people who wear these clothes to hide in plain sight when they feel threatened, evading their would-be attacker.

A Clothesline or a Housing Restoration Co.?


A movement designed around sharing the "real" stories of the American Ellis Island generation, is asking for your money. Save Ellis Island wants to restore the present buildings and put them to "beneficial reuse." Is this how we design our history? Through Authentic American Style from Arrow [clothes]?

The Beat Dress


When music or any sound is detected by the microphone it is being led to the equalizer connected to the computer. If there is a base sound the computer transmits a signal to the battery to send pulses of electricity out to the leds in the dress. This obviously lightens the leds up. Then in a second or so they softly go of again. So when listening to music the leds are pulsing to the rhythm of the music. There is also a small lever attached to the microphone, making it possible to adapt to the loudness of sounds around you. This makes the dress work both where there are low volumes like being at home listening to music or out clubbing where the music is very loud.

Baggy Pants? You’re Under Arrest

You read it right - a number of cities across the country are considering creating laws that would make a ‘certain level’ of…baggyness (?) in your pants to be illegal. I hope these haters stay out of the Bean, or my ass might be in some trouble - my ninjas, please!

Jokes aside - sounds like some racialism to me. And where do we draw the line? The photo the AP is running with, shown above, shows some baggy pants - but I don’t see any boxers or ass crack. Can these two be arrested?

"In Atlanta, we see this as racial profiling," said Benetta Standly, statewide organizer for the American Civil Liberties Union of Georgia. "It’s going to target African-American male youths. There’s a fear with people associating the way you dress with crimes being committed."

I can see it now: ‘Hey you there - stop! You’re under arrest for walking while black!’. Best part of this foolishness? reading all these stories talking about baggy pants like they’re some kind of new trend for parents and citizens to fear - like ninjas haven’t been rocking the sagging slacks for a minute now.

Personally, I’m more offended by men (and some women) wearing pants that are too TIGHT…

Cell Phone Graffiti


Check around your shogunate for these interactive ads to promote Marc Ecko’s graffiti inspired line of urban apparel. The ads turn your bluetooth enabled cell phone into a spray can, allowing you to leave your mark without needing to ready your grappling hook and smoke bombs for a quick ninja getaway.

Just another innovative way to use cell phones to interact with the physical environment.
