"Bloodbath and B-Real (Cypress Hill) have crossed strains to commemorate this year's 4/20 celebration. Presenting two graphic tees and a custom wooden grinder, the pieces will be offered in the Bloodbath Online Shop as well as a handful of special retailers. The wooden grinders have imprints that host Buddhamaster and Bloodbath iconography, which are limited to 100 pieces.  The first tee echoes the same design as the grinder, and the other displays a big thumbprint textured with an image of the finest greens."

 An awesome stop motion look at WORXLIFE Co.'s upcoming  money clip and wallet release. WORXLIFE is a local Jersey company taking the right steps early in the game, they are doing it right and it's starting to show with their upcoming releases. The maturity level has gone beyond just a simple tee, they have gone from simple prints to now accessories and cut and sew. For more information visit their blog and go check that dope ass varsity jacket they posted!
Letter Press Art Find

The fantastic piece you see above is what one can find if you rummage around a company's closet for a while, one of my supervisors found this fantastic letter press block art sitting and collecting dust in a closet. It's made up of (mostly) wooden letter press blocks and can still be removed if shaken. Needless to say we all want to take this bad boy home but will be hopefully displaying it in our office to showcase part of the history of the print industry.

Zechs Marquise Smokin Up 'Everlasting Beacon Of Light'

[vimeo]http://vimeo.com/34867446[/vimeo] Mars Volta sibling band Zechs Marquise has a new video out for the trip-hop sounding 'Everlasting Beacon of Light' from their last album 'Getting Paid', and as the song progresses the visuals get much more engaging just like the song. The Zechs Marquise is a sideband for Marcel of Mars Volta, not sure how these guys and Omar do it but it's always dope and different than everything out. It starts off all smooth and smoky then it gets amped a few levels for the end. Great song and now it has great visuals to accompany it.

Madcatz Unveils Street Fighter X Tekken Arcade FightStick V.S.

Just recently unveiled at CES by Madcatz is the new PS3 and 360 product line for the upcoming Street Fighter X Tekken game (March 16) and it's looking better than your daddy's arcade joystick memories for sure... and at home which is even better. It also has a connecting kit so you can join both arcade sticks for a true arcade feel while trash talking obviously. Check below for more images and some info from Madcatz themselves. I never really preferred Tekken (Panda...pssssh!) so I'm going with Street Fighter characters in this game. What say you my Giants?

The Street Fighter X Tekken Arcade FightStick V.S. features genuine Sanwa Denshi™ arcade components. The unique chassis allows gamers to join two sticks together via the Arcade FightStick V.S. Connector Kit (sold separately) for a highly realistic arcade presentation.

The Street Fighter X Tekken FightPad SD features a 15% smaller chassis than previous FightPad designs, inspired by the gaming preferences of legendary Street Fighter producer Yoshinori Ono.
