Yon The Don x Winners Club Records x David Holzer

Few days ago we had the privilege to visit Yadontunderstand's headquarters to meet up with the ever controversial Yon The Don as he was working with world famous Winners Club Records collective and David Holzer on a secret project of sorts and kinds. Below is the photographical evidence taken with a spy camera. Except for the top image, that was stolen from Yon The Don's private stash through secret hacking techniques.

Fun'n'Games v28 - PS3 surgery

YLOD. Yellow Light of Death.

Something that every (nerdy) Playstation 3 owner fears. I had my PS3 since the launch day. November 2006. I was one of those kids that after being unable to get one at the store due to them being sold out got mine off Craigslist.

Overpaying a few hundred over the asking price, $700 cash in pocket, I went to Alphabet City, Ave D and e3rd street, lobby of a project building. Blinded by instant gratification I bought it from some sketchy dude, not even knowing if it works or not - I just knew the plastic was in the box. 20gb version, no Wifi, but I didn't care. I had it. Next a trip to Best Buy. A router, 2 extra controllers and 3 games later I successfully dropped twelve bills on video games within 30 minutes. Yep.

Fast forward 5 years. Not many original launch PS3's still functioning out there. I took care of mine. Besides popping a 320gb hard drive in there, I didn't tinker or mod it in any way. So needless to say when 2 nights ago the lil bastard stopped working I was gutted. I restarted it 1000 times and same thing occurred. Its on for 3 seconds, beep beep beep, and the normally welcoming green light flashed yellow for half a second, followed by the ugly pulsating red. Quick googling revealed that it's indeed THE YELLOW LIGHT OF DEATH. Say good bye - time for a new PS3. A few quick remedies recommended didn't seem to work.

Unable to face reality I went to sleep immediately. Life as I know it has changed. It seemed that I will have no choice but to buy one of the new age "slim" PS3's. No more heat sensitive on/off and eject buttons. No more shiny piano black plastic or gigantic size. No more hungry power supply that could give a college dorm size fridge a run for its money. Fuckin savages. Foul jumpin jesus swines.

The next day I give google another shot. There seems to be ONE solution out there which involves watching through SIX 10 minute long youtube videos, requires silver based heat compound and a heat gun. It also requires taking apart your PS3 down to the motherboard, literally taking out about 60 screws and bolts, disconnecting leads, popping tiny plastic clips outta place. You had to "overflow" the graphics and CPU processors. Melt the solder and reset them back into place.

At a store next day, holding a new PS3 in my hands I decided there was nothing to lose. I put down the PS3, hit a Home Depot and Radio Shack, picked up a six pack and went to town.

3 hours, a few left over screws and a few snapped lil plastic pieces here and there later, PS3 lives! I am now an official PS3 surgeon. Thank you Gilsky for creating the tutorial. You are a god damn hero.


Shook Guns pt.11

Actions speak louder than words, and a picture is worth 1000 words....so if I did my match right, here are 15 Loud Actions

Action Bronson - Pats himself on the back

To the back with the hat, lean back in the 'lac..
This is Bronson - representing Flushing, Queens on the map

So, I went to a Action Bronson show last night - which turned out to be the most fun I've EVER had at a hiphop show. Ever. Many pics and vids to come soon, but right now I'm a bit busy roasting a lamb over an open fire, so I leave you with this vid below.

One thing to note though... I dont burn anymore, but sweet jesus. Besides stepping out with 2 fatties rolled up and one blazing, Action came on to stage with a few zips worth of twenties and started tossing them into the crowd. Needless to say folks went NUTTY. First time I've EVER seen that at a show. I think weed might be going out of style. Foolery!

BRONSON! Dude is a wizzard, I support him 100%.


IronBoy Quarter

Professional stuntman. Do NOT attempt.



THE BEST video of 2011, hands down. Skavenger kills it.

C2D x Paperbikes x IronBoy Quarter

C2D teamed up with James aka IronBoy and Paperbikes to start building a fun little backyard ramp playground for the cold season.

First thing we constructed was is this 4' tall quarter, with a 3' deck. Still have to finish off the deck and put some copping on there, but we sessioned it anyway, last night, right after it was done. Took about 3 hours to put together and do it right. We want this thing to last. So much fun.

Merry Christmas From The C2D Crew


The Holstee Manifesto

A really great message in this little clip. It's crucial to slow down once in a while and remember whats important.

Ducati Monster Chopped

YES please! That is so clean, I'm in very much like.


Danny Brown @ Fools Gold Holiday Party

Yep. No surprise - Fool's Gold Holiday party was buttery smooth. Like 8 million people showed up and it got wild. Amazing tunes, good people and vibes and free beer always helps. Sweet dancing with sexy people adds to the excitement.

Danny Brown dropped 3 tracks and predictably the crowd went wild. Below find some pics and vids. Lots of people were in the building. Qtip got on stage and so did ASAP Rocky. Action Bronson was cruising through the crowd. A-trak was there, bouncin. Many more hiphoppidy artists as well, who I can't think of right now. A quick lil moshpit broke out and I almost got my dome taken off by Mr. Browns swingin arms, so him and I are close now.

Only in NYC can one see two of his favorite MC's perform AND shake both their hands and tell them how good of a job they are doing all in one swoop. Well, make it 3, Mr. Muthafukin Exquire next week!

Anyway - enjoy the pics and vids. The video is so damn close and in your face, I bet you'll feel like you're there. The moshpit vid is a bit worthless and is presented to just show how much fun the party was and to try to convey the atmosphere, which was FRESH. 2 more vids are coming soon, after the Youtubes decide to load them up.

YEP - thats no other then Action Bronson. As he passed I respectfully shook his hand and told him he got that amazing rap singer business happening. Can't wait to see him next week.

ASAP Rocky on the mikey.
