Technology: “goTenna” Making Texting Possible Without Service

text-even-when-you-dont-have-service-with-the-gotenna-1.jpg

Every time I’m in NYC on the subway, I think “when is somebody going to invent something that provides cell service underground, so I can send text?”

Now If I wasn’t so lazy, I would of patented this idea 10 years ago when it first crossed my mind :(
Recently in NYC I thought about this again, and figured in 2014 SOMEBODY had to come up with this concept by now.

Doing some research I came across a device called “GoTenna.” It’s basically a portable antenna that wirelessly pairs with your cell phone so you can send text messages even when you don’t have service.

The goTenna is available for a special pre-order discount price of $149 USD per pair, while prices will increase to $299 USD per pair when the discounted units sell out. Find out more about the device here.

Events: Outkast ATL Show Announced For September 27th

outkast-at-last-.jpg

Earlier this year it was announced that Big Boi and Andre 3000 better known as Outkast were reuniting to perform at the Coachella Festival in Cali. Shortly after more and more shows were announced across the U.S. including the Counter Point Festival which is about one hour outside of the city of Atlanta. I actually missed Counter Point due to being out of town, and proceeded to buy tickets in another city to catch Kast. From the beginning I was hoping there would be an Atlanta show (I mean this is the ground zero for Outkast right) but I was in fear that CP would be as good as it gets.

Last week it was announced via Creative Loafing that Outkast would be performing in downtown Atlanta on September 27th in Centennial Olympic Park. Tickets went on sale yesterday morning and sold out in a few minutes. Later a second show was announced for Friday September 26th. Those tickets sold out even faster.

I just learned yesterday about the opening acts that have been added to this show. Kid Cudi, Childish Gambino, and newcomer Raury who actually just performed his very first show a week ago are set to set the stage for Kast. I must admit I am a little puzzled about the opening acts for this event. Not artist I would necessarily associate with Outkast or think will be able to properly set the stage for the duo… Of course none of that matters if you didn’t get tickets already cause this baby is SOLD OUT and re-sellers are having a field day.

Will a third show be added for Sunday? Stay Tuned…

Finish Strong: Jacques Slade’s Journey With The Nike Pegasus 31

I recently spotted this video at TheShoeGame: “How Nike Kicked Jacques Slade’s Butt And Tricked Him Into Liking Running.”

I enjoyed watching Jacque’s journey throughout this video, as I’ve had a similar journey. I started running about 5 years ago, but knee injuries kept me from really getting after it. I’m just getting to a point where I can actually enjoy it and appreciate the art and science of running. Check out Jacque’s journey in Oregon trying out the new Nike Pegasus 31. If you live in ATL. I host a Run Club called Movers & Pacers that meets weekly.

Video: Lupe Fiasco “Sway In The Morning” Freestyle

Lupe Fiasco recently stopped by Sway’s satellite radio show and showed why if he’s not one of your favorites, he should be. When Sway asks: “You going to kick a written or a Freestyle?” Lu responds with “when people say freestyle, I freestyle!”

The act of “Freestyling” or creating lyrics and wordplay off the top or your head is a talent and skill many so-called emcee’s don’t posses. When done correctly it can create excitement and leave you hanging on to what the next words or phrase will be. Lupe definitely not only did that, but he held it down for 4 minutes and got busy!

Check it out below. Lu just dropped a new track called “Mission” as well. New album coming soon? Guess we’ll just have to wait and see.

Movies To Check For: “Blacking Up: Hip Hop Remix of Race”

Atlanta Cyclorama Screens Blacking Up: Hip-Hop’s Remix of Race and Identity.
There is a special screening of this documentary tonight at the Atlanta Cyclorama in ATL. Possibly the only time you’ll get to see it on the big screen. Early arrival is suggested.

African American and Latino youth created Hip-Hop more than thirty years ago. The reasons were varied but were partially in response to racial oppression, economic marginalization, and as a means of expression and a way to talk about their culture and their lives. The genre is now embraced by youth the world over and has become part of mainstream youth culture in the United States.

From Cyclorama:

“As we continue our commemoration of the 150th Anniversary of the Civil War’s Battle of Atlanta we hope to expand the discussion of how the changes that occurred as a result of that war changed the course of our country and our people,” states Camille Russell Love, Executive Director of the Mayor’s Office of Cultural Affairs. “In dealing with racial issues and economic challenges, it’s interesting to look at how different groups express themselves through art and music. Join us at the Atlanta Cyclorama for a free screening of the documentary Blacking Up: Hip-Hop’s Remix of Race on June 5 at 7 pm as we explore the Hip-Hop culture.”
