Kick off the weekend with 2 hip-hop masters

There’s not much about this project not to be excited about. I mean a free Talib Kweli mixtape, assembled by the great Z-Trip? That’s pretty much a no brainer, and a hell of a way to kick off the weekend. Let Attack The Block play. “Z-Trip is a true master. This is a mix tape you […]

Softcover out June 20th via Image Comics... party coming soon!

The world which Jim Mahfood (aka Food One) illustrates with his long-running L.A. Ink Stains comic strip is really unlike any other — a highly personal, humorous black & white adventure following his everyday exploits in Los Angeles.

LIAS sits down with Sam Spiegel to figure out exactly who they've got naked pictures of...

We’ve covered N.A.S.A. (North America South America) here many times in the past, partly because they’ve managed to corral an almost unholy stable of collaborators to work with (“People Tree” featuring David Byrne, Chali 2Na, Z-Trip and Gift of Gab, “Whachadoin?” with M.I.A., Santogold and Spank Rock, “Spacious Thoughts” with Tom Waits and Kool Keith, […]

Boing Boing + NASA brings the animated noise

Props to N.A.S.A. who continue their Boing Boing-sponsored run of excellent animated videos (e.g. that Syd Garon directed “People Tree” video featuring David Byrne, Chali 2Na, Z-Trip and Gift of Gab, “Whachadoin?” with M.I.A., Santogold and Spank Rock, “Spacious Thoughts” with Tom Waits & Kool Keith, etc). This time it’s a vid for “Strange Enough”, […]
