I was starting to come around on LeBron after a few years of hating him after the decision but I'm starting to sour on him a little bit after watching this compilation. When you are built like an NFL tight end and are stronger than almost anyone else in the league, there is no need to flop like this on a regular basis. Some of these are so bad and blatant. He acts like he gets shot when he maybe was grazed and sometimes not even touched. Just play the game, Bron! You are better than that.

Simple but effective. This video just makes me like Daft Punk's new single "Get Lucky" even more than I did originally. How awesome was Soul Train back in the day, by the way? Awesome clothes, sick dancing and just a shitload of fun, all while being on a TV show. That's what's up!

If you're a gamer, you've probably already heard about Microsoft's announcement of their new console, the XBox One set to release this year. I probably won't buy one for a few years since I am still happy with my XBox 360 and PlayStation 3 but these videos from EA Sports and their new Ignite Sports Engine are certainly getting me interested.
I think it's safe to say that we are officially playing with real people on these games if the game play looks anywhere close to this. You almost can't tell the difference between real and game video since it looks so realistic. If someone walked into the room and didn't know you were playing a game, they would think you were just watching a live event. Crazy shit!

I've always been a big fan of The Dream's unique style of R&B but it's been a few years since I heard something solid from him. I'm really liking this new track "High Art" featuring Jay-Z. It's still uptempo but it's a little slower than the dance beats you hear in R&B these days which is a nice change. I could see this doing well on the radio but even if it doesn't, I'll be bumping it this summer....

You probably know by now that I am a big fan of Native Instrument's Traktor and the new Trakor DJ app. I posted my thoughts and review here and here. We knew it was just a matter of time, but NI has already released a new iPhone version and it's almost as good as the iPad version.
I downloaded it earlier today and played with it for a bit and everything was almost exactly the same so I was able to use it right away without any learning curve. The smaller screen size can be a challenge but they did a great job of utilizing the space they had without losing any of the functionality. You have the ability to zoom in to each deck separately which makes it feel a little more reasonable.
It will probably be best for cueing tracks, practicing mixes and just getting a general feel for a tracklist but I could still see myself making a mix on it since it has the record function and everything else you would need. I just love that I have the option to use both the iPad and iPhone version when I don't have time or space to set up the normal computer and deck set up. This is going to be fun...

I'm giving serious points here for creativity and execution. The pass should actually get more points than the dunk but when you put them both together, this is one of the better dunk contest slams I've seen in a long time. Pat the Roc was the dude who threw it down and this took place at the “CRL Good Life Foundation Celebrity Game”, whatever that is.
