Terrorist Waves?

AMOEBA

When I first saw this I thought maybe someone had finally built a stargate, but I guess that’s asking too much. What it is is AMOEBA, a ring of wave machines that can be programmed to display images in the water, such as the ‘s’ seen and other simple shapes like smiley faces and hearts [any real ninja would've made a shuriken, but whatever]. The creators hope to make a large scale version, hopefully to manipulate whole regions of the ocean. I’m thinkin that in 10 years time pepsi will have an add across the south pacific.

So, I was originally going to post this as an interesting lil machine that did cool ish with water, but then I re-read the post at Tropolism and realized that the creators of AMOEBA actually think that it could fall into the hands of al-Qaeda and be used to destroy Cali. All because these clowns made an ‘S’ with some wave machines. How is EVERYTHING terror related now? Besides, those cats from al-Qaeda can’t swim! Ninjaplease!
"Unfortunately, there is also the possibility of weaponizing AMOEBA waves in the same way one could easily turn any natural earth systems, e.g. earthquakes, into a national security threat. Because once the machine falls into the hands of al-Qaeda, they can then easily wipe Los Angeles off the map with a tsunami. In the shape of Versailles."

We’re the Juggaknots, bitch!

So peep this flyer I just came across in the streets of the gritty city (sorry for the poor photo quality, but you know ninjas do it on the fly):

The Juggaknots are one of my personal favorite hip-hop crews. Ever. Their first album, "Clear Blue Skies" encountered a ridonculous amount of red tape when it was first recorded and was rereleased 3 or 4 years ago.AA For any of you that missed it, these heads are really ninjas, lyrical ninjas. Go cop that album, I vouch for it.

I had heard rumors of their sophomore album being in the works, but here’s a flyer I was handed at a recent hip-hop show (not theirs) in the city. According to the flyer, it’ll be dropping real soon, in October.
The new single is available already at undergroundhiphop.com

sangles

Go get it. And then get the album when it’s here.

Word.

NAFTA Superhighway?

So, apparently info has been leaked suggesting that the government is involved in top secret plans to build a superhighway from Mexico to Canada, bisecting the US, as a means to bolster a struggling NAFTA. This 4,000 mile 10 lane highway will cost upwards of 184 BILLION dollars [our dollars, by the way...ninjas in Mexica ain't got no money son!], and include space for new rail lines. And heads thought illegal imigration from the south and traffickin from the north were bad now… peep more here from Raymond Learsy.

*caution: conspiracy theory to follow* How the hell can our government be building bigger, longer roads, encouraging more driving? Thats 184 billion dollars that could go towards some real ninja ish, like transporters or cold fusion or something. Oh, and multiply the 184 billion by at least 3, cuz all us Boston heads know how government funded projects get budgeted. Ginormous Dig anyone?

Ninja what?

"The cool kids in Iraq all want an Apache, the cellphone theya€™ve named after an American military helicopter. Next on the scale of hipness comes a Humvee, followed by the Afendi, a Turkish word for dapper, and a sturdy, rounded Nokia known as the Allawi a€" a reference to the stocky former prime minister, Ayad Allawi."

Wow. You’d think that there’d be some other marketing strategy developed for these phones, but apparently, might is right.

A bunch of ill chairs…

So for some reason, I came across about 42 beautiful chairs that I would have if my apartment wasn’t a small Brooklyn closet. You know how us ninjas roll, though. So anyways, I decided to take my favorites and wrap them into a single post rather than completely overhauling myninjaplease into a furniture blog. I hope I did the right thing. Anyways, peep game:

The Fresh Fat Easy Chair, by Tom Dixon, is made of hand-woven plastic.

available from furnitureseen

pigalle easychair

This is the Pigalle Easy Armchair by Cobonpue

available at twentieth in LA

strada chair

Each of these Strada chairs from stew design workshop is handcrafted and unique.

also at twentieth

alicia ninjas

This is Alicia by Gregg Fleishman Industries.

It’s available from the Fleishman himself.

da caterpiller

Above is another great one from Fleishman, the Caterpillar.

And last but not least, I couldn’t resist putting up a couple pictures of the Levi Table, the wooden tabletop with an acrylic base that appears to be floating in the middle of the room. Those transparent chairs are a bit overkill though, I must say:

Oh yeah, you can get the Levi Table at item

Drop a comment and let us know which one of these you would cop, or which chair you already snatched up that’s iller… (I’ll believe it when I see it.)
