Muppets Most Wanted Trailer

Image
It really isn’t easy being green. This fact will unfortunately not get any more poignant for Kermit the Frog than when The Muppets return to the big screen next year in a sequel titled Muppets Most Wanted. As the title implies, there are plenty of caper-solving hijinks in store for The Muppets who, while on tour in Europe, are embroiled in a bad case of mistaken identity when Kermit is replaced by a Russian criminal fugitive lookalike.

While the idea of yet another Muppets movie might appear to be the latest in Hollywood’s idea-deprived grab for reboot material, it’s worth mentioning that The Muppets released back in 2011 was surprisingly well-received both at the box office and by critics. In fact, it managed to out-gross all of the previous films in the series with the exception of The Muppet Movie (1979), a considerable success for any cultural icon franchise trying to find new audiences. Directed by returning director James Bobin, the Disney movie’s human cast includes Rick…

Calyx & TeeBee - Strung Out (Calibre Remix)

Image
A speaker-blazing VIP and Calibre’s first ever Ram Records appearance! There’s no messing around here: this is a very special release.

Subtle, sexy and sprung with slippery glitches, ‘Strung Out’ was one of the many reasons Calyx & Teebee’s hugely successful album ‘All Or Nothing’ resonated with so many listeners. Calyx’s gravelly vocal textures, the duo’s trademark pristine production presentation and a future-focused riddim… Everything about it shimmers with true bass soul.

THE EWOKS / イウォーク - STAR WARS JAPANESE ONIGIRI / BENTO

Image
THE EWOKS

Ewoks are small, mammaloid bipeds who appear in the Star Wars universe. They are hunter-gatherers resembling teddy bears that inhabit the forest moon of Endor. The Ewoks live in various arboreal huts and other simple dwellings. They first appeared in the film Star Wars Episode VI: Return of the Jedi (1983).
They have since been featured in two made-for-television films, Caravan of Courage: An Ewok Adventure and Ewoks: The Battle for Endor, as well as an animated series and several books and games.

イウォーク

イウォーク(Ewok)は、映画『スター・ウォーズ エピソード6/ジェダイの帰還』、『イウォーク・アドベンチャー』、『エンドア/魔空の妖精』(実写版テレビドラマスペシャルとその続編)、『イウォーク物語』(アニメ作品)に登場する架空の生物種・種族である。
「イウォーク」の日本語表記はルーカスフィルムの認証を受けた公式刊行物によるものであるが、英語発音を日本語表記に近づければイーウォックとなる。

The two brands come together to not only commemorate, but also celebrate their longstanding relationship – given Pharrell Williams and NIGO started Billionaire Boys Club in 2003. Accordingly, a series of shirts have been released with custom graphics that overlap BBC and BAPE’s intergalactic motifs. Look for the shirts to drop at Billionaire Boys Club in Tokyo and BAPE STORE.

Image
Chronicling several of the more noteworthy occurrences in the lengthy history of pervasive brand A Bathing Ape, a new video arrives coinciding with the Japanese label’s 20th anniversary.

The video itself touches on a range of landmarks without failure to mention Teriyaki Boyz and offshoots including BAPE Cafe and BAPE Gallery, as well as the plethora of noteworthy collaborative efforts alongside Pepsi, KAWS, Kanye West, Nintendo and others.

JAPANESE TATTOO - IREZUMI

Image
Irezumi

Irezumi is a Japanese word that refers to the insertion of ink under the skin to leave a permanent, usually decorative mark; a form of tattooing.

The word can be written in several ways, each with slightly different connotations. The most common way of writing irezumi is with the Chinese characters 入れ墨 or 入墨, literally meaning to "insert ink". The characters 紋身 (also pronounced bunshin) suggest "decorating the body". 剳青 is more esoteric, being written with the characters for "stay" or "remain" and "blue" or "green", and probably refers to the appearance of the main shading ink under the skin. 黥 (meaning "tattooing") is rarely used, and the characters 刺青 combine the meanings "pierce", "stab", or "prick", and "blue" or "green", referring to the traditional Japanese method of tattooing by hand.

Kyary Pamyu Pamyu : Sunstar Ora² CM *Sunngoi Aura* Commercial

Image
Major toothpaste manufacturer Sunstar is riding the wave and putting the J-pop sensation, dubbing her as “Kyary HAMiGAKi” – a play-on-words with the Japanese word for tooth brushing – at the forefront of their latest Ora2 toothpaste for both local and international markets, spanning Japan, Taiwan, Singapore and Thailand.

In a bid to put “HAMiGAKi” on the world map, Ora2 have appointed the Harajuku darling as the “Ora2 HAMiGAKi ambassador,” and she’s charged with promoting a KAWAii and tanoshii (lit. fun) twist to your daily brush.

KPP is repping KAWAii culture by curating the mini-series of interviews – dubbed “i-KAWAii” (below) – with KAWAii pioneers Sebastian Masuda of 6%DOKIDOKI (also the man behind KPP’ KAWAii onstage and on-screen universe), charismatic “cheki” photog Yasumasa Yonehara, Harajuku model EVA, French KAWAii fashionista Vanessa – and of course Kyary Pamyu Pamyu herself.
