Glow Mechanics – Still Buggin’ (Video)


The homies Glow Mechanics released a pretty dope visual for their track, “Still Buggin”; off of their last mix-tape “Schmo Mechanics”. Something Legitimate laced the duo with a ill beat, while Anthony Maroney and crew match it with good video quality. The new visual definitely correlates with how the song feels, peep the vid above and stay tuned for more from Glow Mechanics.

OneWheel Electric Skateboard


The guys over at OneWheel have dreamt up a knew idea for skateboarding and hope to make it a reality. The one-wheeled electric skateboard is the first of its kind. The design is based off of the hover board in. Back to the Future, and it is the closest thing yet to it. With a little bit of help on Kickstarter, OneWheel hopes their dreams could come true and begin production on the boards. The only bad thing about the OneWheel skateboard, is the fact that it would completely eliminate the whole exercise part of skateboarding. . . Oh well, this thing looks like it would be a smooth ride.

Ski Ballet in Sochi 2014 Olympics

Ski Ballet at the 2014 Olympics? Yeah right, like Putin would ever allow for that to happen. This video from 1985 shows Richard Schabl (defending the gold), and George Fuehrmeir tearin’ up the slopes at Breckenridge. Since it won’t actually be in the 2014 Olympics, lets take some time to reflect on this one of a kind sport.

Don’t forget to tune in and cheer on AMERICA at the Sochi 2014 Olympics next Friday, February 7th, 2014.

Cosmos with Neil Degrasse Tyson

This epic trailer was just released for the upcoming series, Cosmos, which will air March 9th. The series is a continuation of the great astronomer, Carl Sagen’s Cosmos, which is one of the greatest series to ever be made. If you are not familiar with the series, go onto Netflix and start watching and learn about some real deep scientific facts about our existence. . . I  mean it’s deeper than deep.  Lets just hope this series sticks to its roots and isn’t a flop.
