A tender love story of boy meets phone sex girls

Shlohmo and Jeremih have been doing the collab thing for a minute, culminating with their free EP “No More” back in July (which we posted HERE). Now they’re back with the visuals for the very understated love song “Fuck You All the Time”. The tender video was directed by Austin Peters and Sus Boy, and tells the innocent story of lovely ladies who only want your phone sex… and then apply the song’s title generously.

With us being days away from the new Kevin Smith film release of Tusk on September 19th, A24 Films is doing an intoxicating marketing scheme with the help of LA-based weed dispensary Buds & Roses. Together they will be releasing two strains of high-end cannabis in honor of Tusk, one being “Mr. Tusk” and the other being “White Walrus”. Rumor has it that the Tusk variety is the more intense of the two, with the Walrus being more mellow. So if you live in LA, take your cannabis card to Buds & Roses before September 26th if you want a little coo-coo-ca-choo in your water pipe on movie night. Watch the trailer in the meantime, below.

Cos there ain't no such thing as half-way crooks

Cue up “Quiet Storms” on iTunes and kick up your feet in a pair of Mobb Deep‘s official Timberland boots. The level 61 6″ classics have a brown level upper and the expected trademark Timberland rubber outsole, as well as rope laces through metal eyelets and green nubuck ankle collar. An appropriate paring considering that Timberland has come to be as associated with hip-hop as Mobb Deep themselves. You ain’t a shook one — so give up the goods at participating Timberland retailers (a la David Z) come September 20th for $180.

Chris Cowan Sanluis, fashion designer to the stars, has teamed up with the tech brand Acer to make us all a shiny reminder that the world has completely gone to shit — in a fun, earthbound-Barbarella sort of way. What you have here is more than a sparkly pink sequined sombrero. Because this is actually a sparkly pink sequined sombrero that will vastly improve your selfie angles, made with a camera-shot holder that will specifically fit (and promote) the Acer’s new A1-840 tablet. Now that’s convenience. Boasted as the “world’s first selfie hat” — as if such an invention were on par with the (nonselfie-taking) telephone or rocket-launching gogo boots — the hat rotates 360-degrees for the optimal selfie. But that’s not all. The tablet comes with wittle hats of its own for reasons presently unknown to man. Aww, isn’t that fucking absurd and the Earth is ready to implode with its own stupidity adorable? Well, get ready world. It premiered yesterday, September 16th, for London fashion week. As for a detachable shimmery shoulder pad that looks like a second head? Sorry, you’re still on your own when it comes to #photobomb fashion.

Turn your brain into bubble gum and say cheese…

Crewe decides to go truly absurd with its latest flagship barge

In the opulently appointed world of Bentley Motors, the GT Continental has always been the bristling high-performance model. Its recently unveiled GT Speed is the most powerful and fastest Bentley ever built (626 horsepower/206 mph), while the GT3-R edition has been dubbed its quickest (0-60 mph in just 3.6 seconds).

So where does that leave the rest of Bentley’s Moët-fueled line-up?

This morning Bentley Motors announced it has applied its steroid program to its top-of-the-line flagship vehicle, the mansion-esque Mulsanne. The halo vehicle now also gets Bentley’s “Speed” moniker, and with it a 530 horsepower powerplant that’s nearly unequaled in the luxury barge market. Sure that falls significantly short of Mercedes-Benz’s cold-fusion powered, 621-horsepower S65 (disclaimer: it’s actually powered by a twin-turbocharged 6.0-liter V12). But the engineers in Crewe chose to forego ludicrous horsepower output in favor of torque, that magical property that provides magnetic low-end pull. And in a giant, rolling land yacht crafted from wheels to moonroof to provide the apotheosis of luxury, torque and its mountain-moving take-off is where it’s at.

While Mercedes-Benz’s S65 boasts an eyebrow-raising 738 lb-ft of torque, the Mulsanne promises a truly ridiculous figure of 811 lb-ft. That is Monty Python-level absurd.

“The new “S” mode will maintain engine speed so turbochargers are permanently set to deliver immediate performance…”

"A simple board with the whole world as an available surface."

Rick Owens, a high-fashion magnate prone to street wear inspiration, has taken his sights to the skateboard world with the RICKBOARD deck. Hence comes the title of “RICKBOARD” with the letters deliberately capped, because this board is too big time for the lower cases. Its worn appearance is probably due to the deck being made from petrified wood, its look deliberately simple, harkening back to the homemade ramps of plywood the designer remembers from his youth. If you’re looking for a deck that is too gentle  — and expensive  — to actually ever dare touch to a curb, then hit the artist’s Selfridges store, and be ready to drop over $15,000. That’s a pretty penny for a display-only deck where the only drop in you’ll be doing is that of dollars.

As the year moves into autumn, the leaves give over to gold and brown, and the calendar drops its last pages. And so, in preparation of the year’s end, Taschen expands its libraries from the bookshelves to the calendars on your walls and desktops. With month-tracking motifs ranging in everything from the arts to the tarts, Taschen releases the amazing work of Gil Elvgren’s Pin-Ups to their line-up of calendars and diaries for 2015. Line your walls with 12 different monthly mavens of the 11.8″ x 11.8″ wall calendar. Or doll up your desktop with the daily tear-off variety that includes 314 titillating illustrations on a 365-day pinup tear-off calendar. And one last item on the menu is the pin-up diary which includes 120 spiral-bound pages, 56 of which are illustrated. Each of these peaches goes for $14.
