A new trailer for a very interesting looking documentary is up. It is called Vigilante Vigilante, and covers the lives of graff artists and vigilante graff buffers. Interesting question, "is it graffiti if they're covering up graffit?" It looks like they get a pretty well rounded conversation going about the pros and cons of the culture. We will be sure to check it out and post our review.

Beastie Boys out with a new music video. This one directed by Spike Jonze and what seems like a handful of 5 year old boys. Title of the video, "Don't Play No Games That I Can't Win". What I really want to know is, who got to keep all those bass ass toys after the shoot was over.

b-boy fidget and dj kamillion caution real hip hop inside mixtape cover

B-boy Fidget & DJ Kamillion - Caution Real Hip-Hop Inside:

B-boy Fidget & DJ Kamillion truly are “B-boy brothers from different mothers!” Kamillion born on the Southside of Chicago, and Fidget born in Seattle both came up in Hip-Hop at an early age through B-boying (Break-dancing).

Caution Real Hip-Hop Inside has all the elements of a classic mixtape. “ It reminds you of what mixtapes are all about, cutting, scratching, blending, exclusives, remixes, originality, and flavor. All those aspects are in place, start to finish you won’t want to take out this CD”.

We are back, after a long weekend of blowing stuff up and watching Team America. Today we bring you "Up There", a short film on the dying art of sign painting. It is becoming more and more rare to see sign painters as oppose to vinyl banners, but for the few that still exist, Stella Artois has graciously created this mini documentary to help tell their story:
