My Ninja PLEASE ! 12.4.09

Homeless to illin’ with a couple billion. Seriously. Read the story below the break.


Two brothers who are so poor they live in a cave on the outskirts of Budapest and get by selling scavenged junk are in line to receive a $6.6 billion inheritance from a long-lost grandmother, the U.K. Daily Telegraph reports.

Zsolt and Geza Peladi have been informed that they are entitled to the fortune, along with a sister who lives in the United States the newspaper reported Wednesday.

Charity workers in Hungary passed on the good news to the brothers after being contacted by lawyers handling the estate of their maternal grandmother, who died recently in Baden-Wurttemberg, Germany, the Telegraph said.

"We knew our mother came from a wealthy family but she was a difficult person and severed ties with them, and then later abandoned us and we lost touch with her and our father until she eventually died," Geza Peladi, 43, was quoted as saying by ATV television in Hungary.

"If this all works out it will certainly make up for the life we have had until now - all we really had was each other - no women would look at us living in a cave," said Geza Peladi.

"But with money, maybe we can find a partner and finally have a normal life. We don’t know yet if she even told our grandmother about us. I understand it was only while they were carrying out genealogical research that lawyers found we existed."

Under German law, direct descendants are automatically entitled to a share of any estate. As the grandmother’s daughter is dead, the money goes to her grandchildren.

It’s pretty hard nowadays to find something refreshing from contemporary hip-hop.

BLAKROC is a business model / concept project from the man himself, Damon Dash. Rising from bankruptcy he has sculpted a unit of 11 artists with the likes of Jim Jones (yes he spits some nasty rhymes on this believe it or not) and legends like Rae the Chef and Pharaoh Monche with the "rock" group the Black Keys. The plan was 11 artists, 11 days, 11 tracks plus the Black Keys.

Check out the intro video to the project below and if you’re hungry for more, there’s 11 Webisodes to watch and enjoy. If you still are looking for music movements that aren’t stale as fuck check out what’s been brewing over at MusicMNP. And maybe you’ll even buy the album.

My Ninja Please! 11.19.09


"As a curator, I have a responsibility to the artists, who are my teammates, O’Neal said. We all have to make each other look good — no different than what I do on the court."

In a move that will sure shock the art world, Shaquille O’Neal is scheduled to curate an exhibit entitled Size DOES Matter for The FLAG Art Foundation. The exhibition will be on view from February 19, 2010 - May 27, 2010 and includes works from international artists exploring the different ways that scale affects the perception of contemporary art. Good luck my ninja, bring down the backboard of some canvases!

"It was a little harder than I thought it would be," O’Neal told Bloomberg. "When you think about what each of the artists put into their work, what they are expressing and want to share with the world, you feel bad about having to narrow it down."

Over on Kickstarter there’s a project called MakerBeam to make an open-source building kit. Something like Meccano, but open-source, and based on a T-slot aluminum profile. They promise us it will be good for robots. Open-source fire-breathing robot spiders? We can only hope.


On the Kickstarter project site you can view in an informative video of the kit.

As they say, "We’ve never seen a hammer company go broke because hammers aren’t patented; we think we’ll do okay."

They aim to go public with kits at Maker Faire 2010.

Check it out.
