The shipping date is slated for a August 17.

Volpin Props presents an impressive video on the process of making a notorious Daft Punk helmet. Unfortunately, this project was a one-off and no orders for duplicates will be taken.

Over the process, I took hundreds of pictures, mostly because my crummy digital camera I shoot with has a bum autofocus. What you see are the collection of all of these images, and a little hint of video as well.

We think the riot footage makes it so. Okay, not being smart ass, the video is really smart,love the footage and it give canada props.

Jeffery Deitch has officially opened the doors to his era at the MOCA with the Dennis Hopper ‘Double Standard’ retrospective curated by Julian Schnabel. Including Hopper’s photographs, sculptures, films, and paintings, the retrospective includes elements of pop, abstract expressionism, photorealism, and graffiti. As well as being a celebration of the late actor’s life the show gave it’s audience an insight into the world of Dennis Hopper outside of films and fancy.With the actor and artist’s recent death still fresh in the minds of everyone in attendance, the exhibition was a timely one and can be seen as a celebration of Hopper’s life and work. Many were able to see his life outside of film and view his formerly under-appreciated works, such as his observant shots of Los Angeles and California life and the fringes of society. The opening was DJ’d by Ed Ruscha’s son, Eddie Ruscha, and as expected, drew a large, stylish, and hip crowd.
