These Bulbasaur planters are pretty adorable

I've never been into gardening, but these Bulbasaur planters have convinced me to give it a shot. The design is just too perfect; after seeing it, I had to snap one up right away. If you're interested in following suit, ...

Lupe Fiasco is going to kick Daigo's ass in Street Fighter V

Jan 29 // Steven Hansen
And, finally, onto our story, our ostensible reason for reading (you) and writing (me) this article, other than to put content online for pay, to pal around with my friends about music on a lazy Friday, but mostly to talk about Kanye lying about not liking his ass eaten. Rapper Lupe Fiasco's last album, a return to form, is called Tetsuo & Youth if you want to check the standard millennial nerd bonafides. He also he drops Lupin the III and Thundercats references in his verse on Kanye's "Touch the Sky" over a decade ago. Someone asked Lupe on Twitter if he watches EVO, to which he replied, "Only to study Daigo..." Mad Catz' Mark Julio -- who loved my recent dispatch from the Mad Catz Street Fighter V tournament, by the way -- asked Lupe if he was down to fight Daigo, who is sponsored by Mad Catz, in Street Fighter V. Lupe confirmed, "It would be an honor to lose to Daigo-San." Good week, all. See you Monday. [embed]337545:62043:0[/embed] [embed]337545:62044:0[/embed]

Ode to the Spice Orange GameCube controller

Dec 24

The holidays are a magical time. Off work, spending time with family. Sometimes art happens. Sometimes an artist finds himself writing a traditional Shakespearean sonnet about the Spice Orange GameCube controller. Sometimes a bad video with a worse faux-thespian narration gets produced. This is one of those times. Mind the over-enunciated iambic pentameter.
