You can pretty much put anything up against GI Joe video clips and more than likely I'll be very entertained (like the FenslerFilm PSAs). So I was more than excited when Accatone sent this dub/grime one my way. Plus, it uses clips from the Synthoid Conspiracy episodes.
"Williamsburg Walks" is spearheaded by Billburg.com in association with neighborhood merchants and residents, Transportation Alternatives and DOT (though it's not officially part of the Summer Streets rollout). As organizers are taking pains to point out, the event is not a street fair -- no scheduled events, no tents, no tube socks -- but an opportunity for locals to enjoy public space free of auto traffic. Said coordinator Connie Colvin to the Brooklyn Paper:
“It’s really an experiment of letting the community take over the streets ... People can sit out in the street and do whatever they’d like. We expect for it to be a reflection of the area and the community — the artistic community, the Polish community, the Latino community.”
Thanks to streetsblog.org for the info
This project looks ambitious and awesome. Hopefully it will be completed in the allotted time line.
This here is the song that had me hooked. I had this shit on the train playin back to back. Bushwick to the city to Bed Stuy. Just loopin the fucker. Listen and enjoy.

Oh, and I guess while I'm jackin Sweeney Kovar, lemme throw in some of his other links:
Shawn Jackson - Houseshoes beat
And the Shawn Jackson shit that had me since day One
It doesn't seem like too many saw Be Kind Rewind, since every time I talk about it I get blank stares. Well, check that shit out people. One byproduct of this movie are the "Sweded" films, and all the folks contributing to the Swede scene. Yeah, are good chunk of them are complete shit, but oh well, there are some good ones in there too. You can get the idea here. And see all the homemade other shit here. The X-Wing fight scenes here are pretty amazing too.
These should be perfect for street/park and super quick for just general tearing around town. Super pricey for a bicycle tire, but well worht it, if its anything like the Mac's on my 20".
Tonite, Monday June 24th at Midnight, swing by the Fat Beats store and check out Immortal Technique doing an in-store appearance. Pick up his new album, 3rd World. Hardcore fans no doubt will show up with AK-47's and Molotov Cocktails to be autographed (I know I will).
Here we'll be taking a good look at some fun with things you can eat. Keep checking back, its serious business over here.
This volume we're dealing with a lil bit of a Lower East Side grillin. Salt/Pepper, Nice Cut - done medium rare, toasted Onion Wheels. At least 2 varieties of beer, Local and Foreign.
Grill Life 4 Life.

You heard the man, now do it. Its neat.
Damn. Some killer fried dumplings around Columbus Park in Chinatown. Five of them for $1. You know the spot I'm talking about - I'm sure it has a name, but who cares. Amazing. So so tasty and so so "healthy" - its the real deal. I love it.
Then followed by some fierce Ramen noodles on E5th st, between Ave A and Ave B. As always, I cant remember the name of the place but its official. 8$ gets you a huge tasty filling soup.
Food is Good.
Oddly enough, following the same methods as Jurassic Park, scientists are working with chickens to recreate some dinosaurs. I can't wait. What a way to revive the economy, a dinosaur theme park with real dinosaurs. The article is here.
If real life were to recreate another movie, what do you think would be the most entertaining. My vote goes to Running Man.
