So I downloaded the CD from SoulSeek(theres no way I'm importing some CD before I hear it first... and slsk is by far the best P2P program for Japanese music) and listen to track one. The beat was pretty good and then I hear a familiar voice... it was Adrock from the Beastie Boys. I then look at the credits for the cd and see more familiar names... Pharrell, Cut Chemist, DJ Shadow, Just Blaze, Daft Punk and get this... a DJ Michael '5000' Watts chopped and screwed remix. WTF?! Despite all these great people, the CD is still pretty silly but I have to admit... I love this freakin' CD. It's just fun. No, I don't know what they're saying but who cares I like it anyway. So I took it one step further and downloaded a video for their first single, "Heartbreaker". At first I wasn't buying it but after watching it a few times(yeah I'm a creep) I can't get the damn song out of my head... it's so freaking catchy. Below are some screenshots of the video. I'll also provide a Putfile link if you want to watch it as well. **PLEASE DO NOT HOTLINK THE VIDEO OR PUTFILE WILL REMOVE THE VIDEO AND EVERYONE LOSES... THERE IS NO WAY TO NOT GET CAUGHT... if there was I'd tell you**

So if you watched the video you probably noticed their clothing. I for one think it's some of the coolest stuff ever but apparently it's nothing new, atleast in Japan. The clothing company is named 'A Bathing Ape' and the designer is the actually in the group. As soon as I saw those shark zip up hoodies at the very end of the video I had to find out where to get one. Well, the damn things are expensive as f*** so that's not happening... or is it? I took a look on ebay and there seems to be Hong Kong fakes. Yes I am cheap, but no one will know except you guys ;). Well if anyone knows where to get more fake stuff or the real stuff for cheap, do share. I'd like to hear your thoughts on the band as well. I'm already prepared for some serious hating... but try to spare me and the rest of the readers and try to say something atleast worth reading.
Until next time... peaceeeeeeee
