All you need is a Kinect enabled projector and IllumiRoom will extend your video games out into the room with you. IllumiRoom from Microsoft Research is taking gaming technology from “seen it before” to “holy shit! it’s the future.” The whole thing calibrates itself and even works with games that it’s not built for. The Kinect camera reads the physical layout of your space in real time, then uses that to bring explosions from FPS games, atmospheric and lighting conditions, and other effects out of the TV. Just watch the video. It’s hard to explain, but once you see this crazy futuristic mess, you’re about to be all SHUTTUP AND TAKE MY MONEY. Unless you don’t care about video games….then you probably won’t.

Kid Static - When My Soul Goes Down

March of 2010 I released a free album online called Hypnotized. October 2010, I shot the video with Francis Kmiecik and Bryan Carr. The editing is done and the effects are in. Sept. 30th at the stroke of midnight EST, I am going to ring in the Halloween month with a brand spanking new video.

The video features Milloux Suicide of Suicide Girls fame. She was awesome to work with and we have stayed friends to this day.

For behind the scened photos of the shoot, CLICK HERE. They are only visible to those who have pledged to support my next album which is being released in Spring 2012.

I’m not die hard but I like riding. It was cold and rainy so I stopped. It’s nice so recently I started riding again. Enough with the Rebecca Black style synopsis.

These are my bikes.

these are my bikes

This is how I feel about bikes.

Sometimes this life gets to be a bit much. We constantly deal with the macro. Our personal problems keep our heads at ground level and we don’t often realize how amazing this world we live in is.

When people tell me they are “bored” or “nothing exciting ever happens around here.” I think how we are hurling around a nuclear ball of fire through empty space at hundreds of thousands of miles an hour. Our chosen vehicle is a giant rock with a molten center that spits it at us occasionally.

Nothing exciting? How much excitement do you need? Phil Hellenes gets this. He gets a bit preachy in the middle but otherwise, seriously.

Antoine is my favorite person right now.

UPDATE:
REEEEEEEEEEMIIIIIIIX.

Tron Legacy Poster

In 1982 a movie was dropped on the public called Tron. Ground breaking visual effects and a storyline like nothing anyone had ever seen before made it an instant classic. Since then, the cult following grew exponentially. Kids that weren’t even around for the original movie were let in on it by older siblings and parents. After numerous rumors and false starts on a sequel, Disney showed they were serious about it with a trailer at the 2008 San Diego Comicon. 2 years later, the movie is coming out. December 17th. This year.

Jeff Bridges v.s. Jeff Bridges in an all out battle for program supremacy.

Almost forgot, Daft punk wrote 24 original tracks for the movie score. Here are six of them. They’re big. They’re epic. I’m thinking about light cycles right now.

The Pitchfork Music Festival was last weekend in Chicago. I flew in to play a show at Darkroom but couldn’t stay for the fun. Here’s some footage shot by Sean Dorgan of the always fun and wonderful Steff Bomb at the fest.

Our friends over at Veoba celebrated the coming out of their new site with a bash at Beauty Bar in Chicago. Played by Jokers of the Scene, Acid Girls, Necrocomicon, and Just Desserts, the thing was popping all night. Talking to people sitting in beauty parlor chairs, getting sweaty as hell on the dancefloor, disco, booze, photos and people getting pedicures. At the end it got popping again when some other jokers lit off some fireworks outside. After that we hit up Five Star to afterparty with the massive amount of dirty girls over there. Good times. And to think I just went in there to play some pool.

Bigups to Gina over at Veoba for the assist. If you want to see the rest of these pictures go here or here. Word.

For those of you that don’t know, Bootleg Sessions is one of the dopest fixed gear trick videos out there. I talked to Burd over there and they just finished shooting the 4th installment and shipped it off to the replicator. That means this thing should drop mid-May sometime. Why do we care you may ask? The YB+KS track Heavy Catamaran from The Heavy 7″ is featured when they hit London and in their words “It fits so effing perfectly.”

Here is the trailer:

Blood Is The New Black is a clothing company out of LA that makes really cool Tshirts. When I was in LA a couple weeks ago, I got pulled into the photoshoot for their 2010 summer collection. It was good times all around. The Signals dudes held it down with the live music, and all the people there were cool as hell. The actual flicks from the shoot are dropping in March sometime. Look out for your boy.
