Cigarette Socks by Ashi Dashi

I want to preface this post by saying that if you send me something there is no guarantee I will write about it. I only write about what I like, and I receive a lot of product that I don’t mention on this site. Save yourself money by emailing me first! End rant. Ken runs a little sock company out of his apartment in Brooklyn, called Ashi Dashi. I love these ones he sent over that look like cigarettes!

  • Those are awesome!! I really really love the cigarette socks! Where can I get these?

  • haha… nevermind found them!

  • Waow! They’re so kitsch and cute, and they look really snuggly. They make me glad it’s almost winter in Australia, I’m dreaming of hot coffee and these cigarettes.

    I like the pencil socks! The intestines are a little creepy – but pretty if you forget what they are supposed to be!

Collection of 80 High-Res Textless Movie Posters

textless-movieposters30

Not sure how this exists??? Someone has uploaded a collection of 80 high-resolution film posters stripped of any text. Can’t tell if they have next-level Photoshop skills or some other kind of voodoo that made this possible. In any case, thank you, Internet. Have a look at them all here. I included a bunch of my favourites below (there’s a common thread to the ones I picked).

*Edit – just discovered that the link I posted was actually a repost and this was originally posted by Reddit user Join_You_In_The_Sun, so I’ve updated the link in the post.

Watch: “The Junction: A-Trak & Nick Catchdubs”

Here’s episode #3 of our animated series for Red Bull Music Academy, and it’s a peek into the pop culture-filled minds of Fool’s Gold co-founders A-Trak and Nick Catchdubs. Hopefully you’ll find it to be an enjoyable mix of the absurd and the profound (would love to see these two start their own podcast).

The visuals here are a collaborative effort from animator Brandon Blommaert and illustrator Josh Holinaty. The sound design and original music were created by Luigi Allemano.

Make sure you hit full screen on the episode above or watch it nice and big over on Booooooom TV.

Stay tuned for the rest of the episodes! If you missed the first two, watch Episode #1: Chilly Gonzales and Peaches, and watch Episode #2: Kaytranada and River Tiber.
