A surprisingly Dry Burger
that wasn't so good... :(
I immediately regret eating this...
The Burger cross section
From HONK: "I'm not sick and I say I would eat this thing again if it weren't so expensive. And I really must say that this probably is faaaar better when you're many kilometers away from civilization on top of some mountain and you can whip out a cheeseburger with nearly the same quality as a McDonald's cheeseburger while your friend eats dry bread or power bars."

If not, fuck you! I did...
I saw this picture showing the effects of light pollution and it trigged my curiosity. So, I started doing a little research and found out some intereting tidbits. Thought, i'd share them with you...
"Light pollution, also known as photopollution or luminous pollution, is excess or obtrusive light created by humans. Among other effects, it disrupts ecosystems, can cause adverse health effects, obscures the stars for city dwellers, and interferes with astronomical observatories. Light pollution can be construed to fall into two main branches: annoying light that intrudes on an otherwise natural or low light setting and excessive light, generally indoors, that leads to worker discomfort and adverse health effects. Since the early 1980s, a global dark-sky movement has emerged, with concerned people campaigning to reduce the amount of light pollution.
Light pollution is a side effect of industrial civilization. Its sources include building exterior and interior lighting, advertising, commercial properties, offices, factories, streetlights, and illuminated sporting venues. It is most severe in highly industrialized, densely populated areas of North America, Europe, and Japan, but even relatively small amounts of light can be noticed and create problems. Like other forms of pollution, such as air, water and noise pollution, light pollution causes damage to the environment."
Here is a global view of worldwide light pollution.
This is really cool.... I did the survey and found out that me and my main man Barack O-muthafuckin'-Bama agree on 9/10 issues!

Some new Hov for ya'll from DJ Clue's new mixtape, I AM LEGEND PT. 1.

Anyhow, it turns out “Ain’t I” is an old track that was originally recorded for Timbaland Presents Shock Value. According to ew.com, Jay-Z canceled his Oscar plans with Beyonce to work on the song. Despite the effort, Hov and his engineer couldn’t get the track completed in time. So, Timbaland had to face with the tough decision of dumping a high-profile collaboration on the cutting room floor in order to meet his album submission deadline.
So, please dead those BP3 rumors before it becomes reality.

Need to finish that work project, and wish you had the mental intensity to do it? Just take a synapse-regulating inhibitor, induce temporary autism, and you'll want to ignore your friends and do nothing but number-crunching for days. Autism-inducers could become as popular as Provigil among the geek set by 2020. Last night, in fact, a group German researchers announced they'd perfected the method for inducing autism. (They can also cure it.)
Over the past year, researchers have demonstrated several times that they can turn mice autistic by messing with brain chemistry -- and then "cure" them using the same techniques. The discoveries could lead to a scenario similar to the one in Vernor Vinge's novel A Deepness in the Sky, where people are given a brain treatment called "focusing" that essentially turns them autistic and makes them obsessive, detail-oriented workers.
It might also lead to recreational autism, where people who want to take a break from having messy emotions about other people decide to unplug and enter a state where human relationships are no more important than inanimate objects.
I don't know bout this! What if the pill thats supposed to snap you out of this autistic state doesn't work? then you're pretty much fucked..

It looks like the rumors were true and the 80GB PlayStation 3 is in fact going the way of the dinosaur. As retailers try to dump their remaining inventory, news that the more spacious PlayStation 3 model is on its way out was only heartbreaking for a few days. The move is now making a lot more sense of course, when considering the latest rumor to emerge from the gaming world. It appears that Sony has ditched the 80GB model because there will soon be a new sheriff in town. A meatier model is reported to be just over the horizon, boasting 120GB - 160GB of storage. Further details are still trickling in, but it’s said that the newcomer will ship with the highly-coveted Dual Shock 3 controller, which isn’t widely available outside of Japan at this point. The best news, which of course is the worst news for those who have already shelled out the cash for the 80GB model, is that the new model will come in at the same price point that its predecessor sold for. Nice! Word on the street is that the 40GB model should receive a 20% price slash around the same time. That brings the 40GB down to a svelte $299 and twice the price will bring you three to four times the storage with the upcoming model ringing in at $499.
SPOTTED AT THE BOY GENIUS REPORT

Yo I had to reached out to an old friend (from my oki high school days) who's mad
talented. This dude is on some other shit. His art is just insane, I'd hate to see what this negro dreams about! jessssuss..lol
micAh! - WHERE YOU REPPIN'?
uhh...Philippines, Japan, Okinawa, Hawaii, San Fran, Sarasota, San Antonio, now currently Bay Ridge NY....gotta rep them all
micAh! - WHATS YA OCCUPATION?
The day gig, apparel designer for a major comp, aside from that an Image maker and all around pro art-nerd.
micAh! - WHERE'S MY GODDAMN "STREETS IS WATCHING" VIDEO I LET YOU BORROW BACK IN HIGH SCHOOL?
Yo, I still got it back home. I think in one of my boxes somewhere, if I ever find it again I got you haha
micAh! - WHAT ARE YOUR INFLUENCES?
Way to much, does everything count?
micAh! - HAVE YOU DONE ANY PIECES FOR A CELEB?
Well I was invited to partake in this gallery show in Cali in the summer of '06. Very fortunate to take part in the show, it was curated by Shawn Barber ( well known portrait artist, fellow artist, friend, teacher and mentor-might have seen him on Miami Ink/LA ink). Anyway he put this show together in San Fran and I sent a couple of paintings out. I couldn't make the show cause I was currently living in Orlando. Apparently Rob Williams (yes the actor) and his family attended the show. I get a phone call from Shawn the night of the show and hes like "Hey man one of your paintings just sold, Robin William's son just bought it"
micAh! - SAY A BAD ASS GAL HAD A BOOGER IN HER NOSE WHEN YOU TRIED TO HOLLA AT HER WOULD YOU STILL PURSUE?
Say Kim Kardashian had a booger in her nose, would you really halt the pursuit?
micAh! - WHAT MADE YOU PURSUE ART FULL TIME?
Aside from the obvious,what really did it was getting accepted to art school. After graduating high school all I wanted to do was go to art school, it was kind of a scary time cause I only applied to one art school and if I didn't make it in I probably would have joined the air force by default. Luckily I got accepted and the rest is history in the making.
Back to the obvious: Been doing art since day one, its always been a natural route for me to pursue.
micAh! - WHY YOU AIN'T HIT THOSE HOLES HARD DURING FOOTBALL SEASON IN HIGH SCHOOL?
What?!, I'm a buck '35, I don't hit holes, I know my place...wide open and open field, hard to catch me then...haha
micAh! - HOW MANY KICKS YOU GOT?
Maybe 70 plus....I take care of my junk though, allot of em is still fresh some just haven't even been worn yet which prompt me to slow down in the buying field. I've come to realize the only kicks I really care about are retro joints from the mid 90's. I got a fair share of what I want so I'm kinda chill on the hunting.
micAh! - WHAT THE MOST YOU EVER SPENT ON A PAIR OF KICKS?
haha...140, thats my limit, I get hooked up with high price kicks here and there and I diff got some kicks that are valued round but I scratch paying over 140, thats just stupid...Plane tickets cost more the 140, I'd rather go somewhere you know?
micAh! - WHAT YA FAVORITE MUSIC ARTIST?
Geez...safe to say Miles Davis
micAh! - DESCRIBE THE STATE OF HIP-HOP RIGHT NOW.
Music wise, over saturated. Like all things, eventually the music will evolve and hopefully something grand will hit the light. As a culture, its cool to see that its starting to become more diversified and broad. I mean the current melting pot of genres and cross-over lifestyles is helping that which is really grand.
micAh! - DESCRIBE YA ART STYLE.
I hate this question but here's my answer I use that I think gives a fair depiction:
A melting pot of genres, cultures, colors, mediums, perspectives, and nostalgic haiku's.
micAh! - WHAT SHOULD WE EXPECT FROM YOU IN THE 08?
Hopefully allot of new imagery and projects, don't want to say too much but if you know me, stuff will come out by the pile. I got a mini interview in TRACE magazine coming out I think next month, I got a group show in Portland, Oregon in May, I do have some gear I helped design hitt'n the market later on in the fall though, and I'm looking to release my 3rd book in the summer.....keep ya eye's peeled, best bet just keep tabs on:
micAh! - WHO YOU VOTING FOR?
micAh! - WHERE CAN PEOPLE CONTACT YOU TO GO GET SOME ART COMMISSIONED?
I'm booked with work this year. By summer I'll have more breathing space but then again its too early to tell.
micAh! - IF YOU HIT THE LOTTO WHATS THE 1ST THING YOU'D DO?
Pay off my damn school loans, cut my a family a check, buy a simple crib near my family, travel heavy and paint/create my days away (all the while not tell anyone, thats key haha).
micAh! - TELL US SOMETHING THAT WE WOUlDNT NECESSARILY KNOW ABOUT YOU.
Umm...on some nerd ish, I'm a big Transformers fan (way before the movie dropped) haha
BUY DENNIS' ARTWORK
P.S. GO COP THAT GUTS ON PAPER!!!
