A Musical Travelogue Through British Knights’ History

british-knights-romanelli3

This will be a heavy dose of nostalgia for some and completely confusing for others. A surreal journey through British Knights’ history, straight off of vhs tapes, with music from Alchemist, Samiyam, and Action Bronson. The stream of consciousness vibe here reminds me of Madlib.

Watch “Which Ways The Beach Mix” below.

VHS Skateboard Series by 5Boro

5boro-skateboards-vhs00

It’s been a while since I bought a skateboard but this series of VHS inspired decks by New York brand 5BORO is fantastic. If anyone knows who designed them please let me know (I searched for a design credit for awhile and came up with zilch).

*Edit – The designers behind these boards are Mark Nardelli, Matthew Tapia, and Max Vogel Razauno. Thanks to Gerry, Daniel and David who helped me track them down via Facebook.

Have a closer look at each deck below.

Best of Kickstarter: The DNA Project

j-viewz-DNA-kickstarter

Jonathan Dagan, better known as j.viewz, is a Brooklyn-based songwriter and producer. You may recognize him as the guy who performed that incredible cover of Massive Attack’s “Teardrop” using electronics hooked up to vegetables (watch the performance here).

Dagan has teamed up with digital agency Hello Monday to re-invent the way an artist releases an album. The DNA Project is a 10-month experience which invites fans to be a part of the album-making process. When the album is complete listeners will have the ability to explore the DNA of the entire album, tracing back, step by step, to the genesis of each song.

Watch the video below to get a clearer picture of the project!

Best of Instagram: Week 22

Here’s this week’s Best of Instagram post, a selection of 5 photographers worth following. I’m making a conscious effort here to highlight work that challenges or completely disregards what is usually popular on Instagram.

Guest posters often take over the @Booooooom Instagram, so if you’d like to be considered for a future “Best of” post you can connect with me on my personal Instagram account @JeffHamada. Please, for the love of God, do not tag or @ me in a million photos in a row (one is good enough).

You can, and should, also leave a comment below with a link to your Instagram along with an image from your feed!

Chillr: The App That Connects Chill Dudes

chillr-chill-dudes

First there was Grindr, then Tinder, now there is Chillr. This is the way chill dudes can connect with other chill dudes, unless of course you live in Vancouver where chill dudes can just head to Dude Chilling Park; it’s much easier. Watch the video below.
