gRaviTistiC~check out this amzing wristwatch

gravitistic magnetic watch by jaemin jaeminlee

when examining the significance of time, what is truly important is not to know the moment of the day it is but to recognize the invaluable significance of each passing moment. 'gravitistic' by designer jaemin jaeminlee is a magnetic watch that expresses the concentration of the hour. the units point towards a minute hand, arranged as if they are being pulled by gravity. by utilizing the force of a magnet, the device relies solely on the laws of physics to deliver an accurate reminder of time.
Gravitistic is a watch that expresses the concentration of time. The units of time pointing toward a minute hand are arranged as if they were pulled by the gravity. By utilizing the force of a magnet, this watch performs a role that symbolically delivers the message to remind the meaning of the current hour rather than to tell the exact time of the moment.

brooklyn-based artist KAWS has given the MTV video music awards trophy a redesign for the first time in its 30 year history. the original 13 inch (33 cm.) tall chrome statue was conceived by manhattan design in the early 1980s and is based on the image of celebrated american astronaut buzz aldrin. for this one-year-only event, the iconic MTV moonman will take on the characteristics typical to KAWS' style. the artist is best known for his fine art merchandise -- series of vinyl toys and memorabilia produced in extremely limited quantities and highly sought out by collectors -- as well as his collaborations with brand giants nike and marc jacobs. MTV executives thought the shift was an appropriate way to mark the change in venue for this summer's award show at the newly-built barclays center in brooklyn, new york. KAWS will also design the stage for the august 25th show which will include an 18-meter (60 foot) inflatable version of his limited-edition moonman.

JayZ receiving the Platinum Sale recognition from the RIAA

Talk about changing the rules! 
once in a while individuals come along that change the rules and rewrite them. By now we all know Jay cut a deal with samsung to distribute 1million free copies of his new album Magna Carta Holy Grail, but at the point of the deal there was the controversy of RIAA certification which required at least a million units to be sold through conventional means (music stores etc) for the platinum certification to be confirmed. The unconventional approach of selling your album to a corporate entity is not necessarily new but was first successfully exploited by Jay on a global scale. Thanks to this feat the RIAA has been forced to rewrite their rules on record sale certifications.~ NICE!

i found this video on the TED talks site, totally amazing approach to understanding how humans learn as children. Deb Roy has to be one of the brightest minds out there with genuine innovative thinking. My particular interest in this research lies in the potential benefit of his finding to advertising and music promotion.

Remember this next time you walk up to the ticket window of your local movie theater with $10 in your hand. The Media (Accidentally?) missed this one!!!! Please read this: The troops oversees would like you to send it to everybody you know. Subject: Denzel Washington, and Brooks Army Medical Center. Don't know whether you heard about this but Denzel Washington and his family visited the troops at Brook Army Medical Center , in San Antonio , Texas, (BAMC) the other day. 
This is where soldiers who have been evacuated from Germany come to be hospitalized in the United States , especially burn victims. There are some buildings there called Fisher Houses. The Fisher House is a Hotel where soldiers' families can stay, for little or no charge, while their soldier is staying in the Hospital. BAMC has quite a few of these houses on base, but as you can imagine, they are almost filled most of the time. 
While Denzel Washington was visiting BAMC, they gave him a tour of one of the Fisher Houses. He asked how much one of them would cost to build. He took his check book out and wrote a check for the full amount right there on the spot. The soldiers overseas were amazed to hear this story and want to get the word out to the American public, because it warmed their hearts to hear it. The question is - why do: Britney Spears, Lindsay Lohan, Paris Hilton, Tom Cruise and other Hollywood fluff make front page news with their ridiculous anticsand Denzel Washington's Patriotism doesn't even make page 3 in the Metro section of any newspaper except the Local newspaper in San Antonio . A true American and friend to all in uniform! This needs as wide a distribution as we can create. Please share it!
