Visual Dopeness: Made By Hand – “No 2 The Knife Maker”

Posted in Truth, Visual Dopeness with tags , , , , , on November 10, 2011 by prolifik1

I came across this Vimeo documentary series by Made by Hand, thought this second video release of theirs was quite interesting. It’s about Joel Bukiewicz who was an inspired writer but later turned knife maker.

Basically conveys that if one thing doesn’t pan out, there’s always an alternative to the hustle. I found it quite interesting and inspiring knowing that we can make the best out of something we love to do.

Aww snap, a hat section.

The Illest shop in Little Tokyo, L.A. just went through a remodel.  The new shop layout looks good!  The original layout had a lot of room to play with, I’m happy to see them make use of it.

It has me tempted to hit up the shop this week now.

In Pursuit of Justice: U.S. Finally Kills Osama Bin Laden

Posted in News with tags , , , , , on May 1, 2011 by prolifik1

Today is a historical day, Osama Bin Laden is officially dead! Well supposedly… Supposedly confirmed too.

Being a resident and citizen of this fine country, patriotism has set in.  It’s indeed, great news!  With this in mind, it still cannot heal what was done during September 11, 2001.  Even though, the grief left behind during 9/11 has left our country’s heart wounded; it brings a sense of justice to the victims that were involved on that tragic fateful day.

What took years in tracking and hunting Bin Laden down has finally ended! It may seem over for now, but we can always expect possible retaliation from the followers of Al Quaeda.  I commend President Barack’s Obama’s pursuit in finding Bin Laden after taking office. He presented a well stated and touching speech on this historical day.  Special thanks to our U.S Intelligence for getting the job done!

For the actual article via CNN: Osama Bin Laden dead

My Prayers Go Out To Japan

Posted in News with tags , , , , , on March 10, 2011 by prolifik1

Quite unbelievable on what I’m currently seeing on the news. My thoughts and prayers go out to the residents of Japan.

Tokyo (CNN) — An 8.9-magnitude earthquake hit northern Japan on Friday, triggering tsunamis and sending a massive body of water filled with debris that included boats and houses inching toward highways.

The epicenter was 373 kilometers (231 miles) away from the capital, Tokyo, the United States Geological Survey said. But residents there felt the tremors.

The quake rattled buildings and toppled cars off bridges and into waters underneath. Waves of debris flowed like lava across farmland, pushing boats, houses and trailers toward highways.

In Tokyo, crowds gathered in the streets and tried to reach relatives via cell phone.

Scenes inside office buildings showed papers strewn all over the floor and people clinging onto seats and desks.

Such a large earthquake at such a shallow depth creates a lot of energy, said Shenza Chen of the U.S. Geological Survey.

It caused a power outage in about 4 million homes in Tokyo and surrounding areas.

A tsunami in the Pacific was moving closer to other shorelines in other countries, said CNN meteorologist Ivan Cabrera.

It triggered tsunami warnings for various countries, including Japan and Russia, the National Weather Service said.

“Earthquakes of this size are known to generate tsunamis potentially dangerous to coasts outside the source region,” it said.

“Based on all available data a tsunami may have been generated by this earthquake that could be destructive on coastal areas even far from the epicenter.”

The quake was the latest in a series in the region this week.

Early Thursday, an earthquake with a preliminary magnitude of 6.3 struck off the coast of Honshu.

A day earlier, a 7.2-magnitude earthquake struck off of Honshu, the country’s meteorological agency said.

The largest recorded quake took place in Chile on May 22, 1960, with a magnitude of 9.5, the USGS said.
