Phil Frost speaks on 'Marley'

In celebration of the upcoming release of MARLEY, Kevin Macdonald's epic feature length documentary on the life of Bob Marley, artist Phil Frost (who's known to be incredibly reclusive) participated in a terrific short video in which he, for the first time, talks about how his work and life has been influenced by Marley. MARLEY hits theaters and all the digital outlets (including Facebook) on 4/20 and includes never before seen footage and music.

Cuppow! Sippy Lids For Canning Jars

I grew up being told that drinking outta mayo jars was socially unacceptable. Cuppow is making it socially responsible [and cost effective at 8-bucks] with their eco-friendly solution.

The Cuppow sippy lid fits onto most wide-mouthed canning jars.  The lid is BPA free and biodegradable. The jars? You can get them anywhere...thrift stores, grocery stores, your grannies cupboard...anywhere. I'd say check your local thrift store, you're bound to spend less than a buck.

Check out Cuppow's site for more info.

LCD Soundsystem 'Shut Up And Play The Hits'

LCD Soundsystem 'Shut Up And Play The Hits' Premiers at Sundance Jan 22nd, 2012 at the Egyptian Theater [Park City, UT]


"...On April 2nd 2011, LCD Soundsystem played its final show at Madison Square Garden. LCD frontman James Murphy had made the conscious decision to disband one of the most celebrated and influential bands of its generation at the peak of its popularity, ensuring that the band would go out on top with the biggest and most ambitious concert of its career. The instantly sold out, near four-hour extravaganza did just that, moving the thousands in attendance to tears of joy and grief, with NEW YORK magazine calling the event "a marvel of pure craft" and TIME magazine lamenting "we may never dance again."  SHUT UP AND PLAY THE HITS is both a narrative film documenting this once in a life time performance and an intimate portrait of James Murphy as he navigates the lead-up to the show, the day after, and the personal and professional ramifications of his decision."
