Yo Son, Run That Soundwalk

Besides the fact that you could get jacked for this if you walk through our Dojo at night, the Soundwalk speaker harness looks like exactly the gear for any true urban-sherpa type. You can click the link if you want all the technical details and whatnot, but basically this piece has speakers in it so you can bump your tunes from your favorite DAP. I guess ideally you would rock this underneath your gi. I hope it got a mute button for stealth mode.

The Realest Ninja Alive Act I: Cam’ron vs O’Reilly

Both Ninjas with the random apostrophes in their names(?!). Take note that Cam’Ron actually pays attention to and responds to what the principal says. Also take note of the fact that O’Reilly is so insistent that the Terminator movies are cartoons(!?). Cam’Ron officially wins the Realest Ninja Alive Award of the day for offering up the whole record label to go to school to talk to the school kids. Principals on myninjaplease, try this out and let us know how it works out. The overall point: Educate the young ninjas, please.

Best Lines
Cam’Ron to O’Reilly: "Why you don’t wanna let [Damon Dash] talk? You maaad, You maaad! Where’d you start
Current Affair, Right?"
O’Reilly to Cam’Ron: "Wrong."
Cam’Ron to O’Reilly: "You faked a lot of… You… I got dirt on you, doggy!"
O’Reilly to Cam’Ron: "Cam’Ron, shut up."
Cam’Ron to O’Reilly: "I’ma get at you in a minute."
O’Reilly to Cam’Ron: "You go right ahead and get at me."
Cam’Ron to O’Reilly: "I’ma get at you."

Can’t Ditch Your Records Because You Love the Cover Art?

Well check out the I-Deck… An English designer who was missing the olden days put together this touchscreen iPod dock which somewhat resembles an oldschool phonograph. Once you’ve docked your pod, you can control it via the touchscreen, which also displays the cover art. Now that’s gangsta!

So, for a week or so, I been messing around with this little freeware iTunes add-on called GimmeSomeTune. It’s got an attractive interface and adds some functionality to iTunes with a floating translucent window that displays current song info. There’s a lot of features and it’s highly customizable. My favorite part, though, is that it’ll automatically download album art for whatever song you’re playing.

Get it from Eternal Storms Software.
