01. 10 Cam’ron Tracks With Killa Soul

“Earlier this week Cam’ron leaked two new joints, “Fairytale,” a forgettable track featuring a hook by Avery Storm, and “Wanna Get,” a smooth, laid back cut that seemed to evoke classic Killa—a side of the Harlem rapper that listeners haven’t heard in years.” (XXL).

02. Farringdon Laptop Desk by Leonhard Pfeifer

“Conceived for apartments and small spaces, the Farringdon Laptop Desk by Leonhard Pfeifer for Woodman features a sliding work-top that can be extended to increase the work surface, while minimizing the footprint of the desk. It won the “best product” award for the Loft category at Maison & Objet in Paris this past month. Selected for its sleek design and small footprint, the desk has integrated cable management to accommodate laptops or flat screen monitors, external hard drives and phones. The desk sits on solid oak legs, and integrates the sliding worktop and an open shelf for papers.” (Design Milk).

03. The Mexican Suitcase at ICP (Above).

“WAR IS HELL! screams the 72-point headline of a magazine photo-essay by Robert Capa in the late 1930s. The photographer who famously said, “If your pictures aren’t good enough, you’re not close enough,” changed the way the public came to expect information from the front lines to be delivered by embedding himself with the troops. He began doing this during the Spanish Civil War, and his most famous images from that bloody conflict have, until now, been seen only through magazine reproductions and reproductions of those reproductions.” (DART).

04. Pavlik, Rigondeaux & Jones Headed to Cowboys Stadium!

“ARLINGTON, TX (September 27, 2010) — Former World Middleweight Champion KELLY “The Ghost” PAVLIK will be embarking on his professional comeback, headlining the televised undercard for the 12-round World Boxing Council (WBC) super welterweight championship between combined 10-time world champions CONGRESSMAN MANNY PACQUIAO and the “Tijuana Tornado” ANTONIO MARGARITO. Pavlik will be taking on Texan BRIAN VERA in a 10-round bout. The pay-per-view undercard will also feature boxing’s wunderkind GUILLERMO RIGONDEAUX, challenging for a world title in only his seventh professional bout, in a 12-round rumble with former world champion RICARDO CORDOBA for the vacant World Boxing Association (WBA) interim super bantamweight championship. The exciting telecast will open with undefeated top-rated welterweight contender MIKE JONES defending his North America Boxing Association (NABA) and North America Boxing Organization (NABO) welterweight belts against Top-10 contender JESUS SOTO-KARASS..” (East Side Boxing).
