Okay this is awesome and shows how far we have come and that twitter is more than just a global texting platform where people who have absolutley nothing to say are in a rat race for the most followers. It pretty much makes people anti-social in real life, but I need it for business!!
Mercedes Benz engineer Werner Scherenberg released this video showing a Mercedes Benz CL 550 that they hacked so that they could control it via Twitter.
Metal Gear Rex
Big Boss Snake
Grey Fox Iron Man (nice)
I am a HUUUUUGE Metal Gear Solid Fan so I had to post this. Also, watch how he went in and highlighted with White Out.
As part of his exhibit at the Konami Style store in Japan, Konami illustrator Yoji Shinkawa did a live painting of Big Boss aka Naked Snake in the smoky and gritty style familiar to fans of Metal Gear Solid. This was just day 1 of an on going painting that will continue until the end of January. It was a fantastic show and amazing to see him paint in person.
Everything was done using tape!! Watch the video link by clicking his name in the text. Australian street artist BUFFdiss uses strips of masking tape to create his art. He often makes oversized hands that interact with the environment, but he also has more complicated pieces.
Bob Arno is a charismatic, witty and intelligent man. A perfect mix of characteristics for a thief. Watch as Arno charms the audience while stealing their watches, ties and even their underwear.

I know they're "Premiums"(which to me just means better quality leather that's all), but I would probably end up customizing these. :-/
Nike SB is preparing to honor Lady Liberty through this Nike SB Dunk High Premium. One of the most famous landmarks in the world, the Statue of Liberty is portrayed through the sneakers by the use of a Seagrass green upper mimicking the tarnished shell of the once-copper statue. Due to the lack of pictures right now, it’s unclear if the insoles feature any sort of graphics to further display the inspiration behind the sneakers. The release details are a little sketchy right now. As you can see, the photo clearly marks the sneakers as a February release, but some sources are reporting that the sneakers will release this month as a quickstrike alongside the Nike SB Dunk Low Pro “Neon J-Pack”.
