Is it a PR stunt or not? Nobody knows. Fact is Lady Gaga and Kanye West annouced their tour „Fame Kills“ just to cancel it again. Now rumours say that there still will be a tour. If this proofs to be true – we will see! For now have a look at the trailer for the tour.
What´s Australia´s finest export? Yes, AC/DC! With their forthcoming Black Ice tour smashing stadium ticket records, they now have teamed up with Converse for a ball-breaking colab. Angus and Co. adorn a series of Chuck Taylor All Stars, a natural fit given the shoe’s royal rock heritage. The standout though is a suede Star Player 75 Scout brandished with Angus’ school-cap monogram in thick varsity wool and in a very well fitting green colorway. Converse… we salute you!
Michael Jackson is deeply missed and surely will be remembered in many different ways. The most popular way is probably as Zombie Michael in „Thriller“. Now you can commemorate the late, great King of Pop with this figure of him as he was in his famous „Thriller“ music video. Made by Hot Toys, it’s 12 inches tall, 1/6-scale and fully poseable (so you can easily make him do the zombie dance). He also comes with an alternate zombified head, various hands and a torn red jacket. This figure will be released in December and costs around $250 plus shipping, but we think that’s worth every penny. See more pics after the jump.
Somehow Wu-Tang constantly manages to surprise with their releases. Whether due to poor marketing or not, the recent output from the Clan just seems to appear. Case in point, Soundtracks from the Shaolin Temple. This collection released two days ago (October 7) and includes each and every living member of the Clan, and some choice guests.
