I was walking home from work yesterday and spotted this ultra chic Mercedes S-Class sedan fully decked out in New York Police Department garb; check out the pics. I’ve seen the new Dodge Charger HEMI cop cruisers, but this is a little over the top, especially considering the MSRP on a new S-Class is over $100,000.

The Smoker’s Phone….thanks again China

Taking ‘convergence’ to new heights; I bring you the Smoker’s Phone!

from Mad4MobilePhones:

This is probably the most ridiculous product to come out of China in some time. The Smokers Phone looks like a cigarette packet but is in fact a real working mobile phone complete with a handy compartment inside to keep your cigarettes safe.With the official government warning stickers this handset looks exactly the same as a real cigarette packet and includes a microSD card slot, MP3 player, colour screen and VGA camera.

Tune of the week: Glös – Unharmed

20 03 2007

I think this is the first non-electronic song I’ve ever admitted listening to. Just kidding.. The band is Glös and they remind me a lot of the early Deftones.

This bit from Stereogum:

Since Virginia post-hardcore band Engine Down’s 2005 breakup, Keely Davis has been playing with Sparta, which is fine and well — but we miss Engine Down’s sharply melodic brand of emotional punk. So it was nice to hear that Keeley and ED drummer Cornbread Compton were involved in a new project, crafted by trading files via email, and calling along Davis’s sister Maura (formerly of Denali, presently of Ambulette) for the 11-song effort Harmonium. Here’s one of our favorites, with Keeley hiding behind a slight filter effect before the song blooms into a shadowy burner.

I just saw a man get shot many, many times by the NYPD in NYC’s West Village

17 03 2007

I’m still in shock. I just witnessed this guy get killed by the police!!!!! We were having dinner on the sidewalk at Bamboleo at Bleeker and Thompson in Manhattan
(update, Bamboleo’s actually Bleeker and Sullivan, sorry) and this guy
with a briefcase gets stopped by a cop, he punches him in the face and
takes off running. within seconds there was a torrent of gunfire, at
least 100 shots, some were definitely automatic weapons. The guy falls
dead on the ground right across the street in front of the deli.
Fucking crazy! Everyone in the restaurant ran to the kitchen and hid
until the firing stopped. My heart is still pounding, I’m writing this
from my Tmobile MDA in a cab home.

Update:  Finally a major media outlet has picked up the story:
