Canon and Invader Zim bring Occupy Wallstreet protests to the public eye

When it comes to protests, there's always one thing that'll keep you (and your mob) from succeeding in making the United States aware of your cause - protesting the news corporations. Over the past two (or so) weeks, there've been protesters in the streets of New York City in areas on and around Wall Street, this gathering named "Occupy Wallstreet" and called for all the way back in the July issue of Adbusters (an anti-consumerist magazine that I just so happen to have a copy of right here) and encouraged by the hackers at Anonymous soon afterword. These protests have been going on since the 17th of September, 2011, and continue to this day where one of the most important factors has come into play: branding.

NIKE Teases Separate 2015 Re-Release of 2011 Back to the Future Shoe, Power Laces intact [Video]

If there's one oddity that's been taking the tech world by storm over these past 72 hours or so, it's been the 2011 NIKE MAG shoe, straight out of the classic science fiction comedy film Back to the Future II. In this movie it's Michael J. Fox in his most recognizable role of his career, Marty McFly, sporting the "NIKE MAG" sneakers in all their futuristic glory. We've got full details now on a 2011 release of the shoe, including the awesome fact that proceeds will be going to the Michael J. Fox Foundation in the end - but today a whole new bombshell may well have nearly slipped right under our noses: a "lost scene" from the Back to the Future movies that portends another release of this legendary sneaker set in the future: September 8th, 2015 to be exact, where they'll include the most excellent "Power Laces" feature missing from the 2011 limited edition drop!

NIKE MAG Official Details Released in Full [Updated with Max Detail]

It's time for the "greatest shoe never made" to make its real life debut, and with the fact that they're being touted as precise replicas, down to "the contours of the upper, the glowing LED panel and the electroluminescent NIKE in the strap." This should all bode well for the method in which the shoes will be released, that being 1500 limited-edition pairs of the 2011 NIKE MAG, all of them auctioned off in the very near future on eBay with all net proceeds to go directly to The Michael J. Fox Foundation for a future without Parkinson's disease.

NIKE teases legendary Marty McFly Sneakers with epic 1985 invite

NIKE teases legendary Marty McFly Sneakers with epic 1985 invite

Welcome Back to the Future, where the most widely anticipated pair of sneakers ever conceived have been all but confirmed by NIKE as being about to come into existence - IT'S ABOUT TIME. In a teaser handed out to select sneaker-heavy publishing groups, a midnight call from NIKE quickly turned into a room with only a black box with the swoop logo on it, an iPod Shuffle, and a card which read "Play Me." Once Dr. Emmett Brown was heard saying “Welcome to Los Angeles. If my calculations are correct, over the next 24 hours you are about to see some SERIOUS SH*T!", the publisher's next move was to open the box and find a pair of the Doc's classic 2015 shades and a message that invited them to an event that promised nothing less than the sneakers themselves!

UPDATE: FULL DETAILS have been released about what's now called the 2011 NIKE MAG - most excellent!

Pokebra – Hooters! I Choose You!

I know nothing of bras really other than the one handed pop-twist-fling move that I learned in my college days in a martial arts class called Bra-Maga. What I do know is that if any of you ladies out there want to get some lingerie that will really grab the attention of the geek in your life, skip Victoria's Secret and head over to Etsy. The only bra that will take your geeks mind off getting you out of it are these three bras from the ScreenShoes shop on Etsy.

The shirt has a little green light that flashes on front to give a visual indicator that it is working.
