Freshjive - 'Hope Is Fading Fast'

If you really know me, you know that I very very rarely talk about politics. It's just a subject that I prefer to stay away from, since it's so touchy to a lot of people. But, I came across this on Highsnobiety, and I thought this tee by Freshjive was very intriguing. They've been coming out with some strong statements in their line lately and this one is no exception. This is also the first tee that they've came out with that uses their 'non branding', where they took away all branding elements and just left a black tag. The shirt and the message speak for itself on Freshjive's take on the Obama admisinistration. Makes you think about how things still haven't 'changed' very much..

This image was also on Freshjive's site.. a pretty thought provoking image too..

Vestax Spin MIDI Controller

So i'll say without hesitation that nothing beats 2 turntables and a mixer hands down. But recently MIDI controllers have been making there way into the dj market. Why? Because they're small, easy to take on the go, relatively mediocre in price, and they're and all in one kind of package. MIDI stands for MIDI (Musical Instrument Digital Interface). So with todays Serato popularity recently with mobile and club dj's, Vestax has been coming out with some of the illest MIDI controllers (The Vestax VCI-300 to be specific), and they've now collabo'd with Apple. Yup, they're coming out with the Vestax 'Spin' which has dedicated Apple software for dj'ing. The system features almost everything the Vestax VCI-300 has, but here's the best part.. the VCI-300 costs around $850. Spin will only cost you $250. From what i've seen so far, your totally getting your money's worth. It has a built in soundcard and mic input, so you can plug directly into the controller. I'm thinking about getting one so I can mix in the car on long Vegas or SF roadtrips to pass the time, but we'll see. All in all, i'd rather take the VCI-300 for sure, but at that price, i'd have to think twice. Anyway, check out some of the pics..

Pretty much the same eh?

Not much bigger than a MacBook Pro, so it's a little smaller. But most of the features are still the same.

Ms. Gaga Got Pretty Bad..

Not sure how I feel about Lady Gaga, but I know the girl can flat out sing her ass off. Her new video is amazing, but the song is just ehh. But the video definitely makes up some points for it. Check it out:

***EDIT: This song is the shit and so is Gaga
