De La Soul 'And the Anonymous Nobody' Kickstarter success -- an interview with Dave aka Trugoy

April 26th - via: betanews.com
De La Soul is one of the most important rap groups in the history of Hip-Hop. When they debuted in the 1980s, many other rappers were acting phony and embellishing their lives of crime. Conversely, the Long Island trio kept it real by rapping about everyday life and not fantasy. Unfortunately, many took their realness and honesty for a weakness, dubbing them 'positive' rappers; a label that followed them their entire careers. While many other rap groups have come and gone -- formed and broken up -- De La Soul is still here. In fact, they are planning a new album called "And the Anonymous Nobody". (Read More)

The Ockham Razor

April 23rd - via: thecoolector.com
We’re big into the idea of spending a little extra money on the items we use in everyday life here at Coolector HQ. Stuff which makes life a little easier on the eye. Every day we walk into our bathroom and are faced with the same old cheap plastic toothbrush, clunky “retro” comb, and ugly throwaway razor. Which makes no sense, as we love nothing more than to share what we consider to be good, eye-catching and a somewhat humorous take on design. So why should that stop at the bathroom door? (Read More)
