$100 Note Unveiling Video – Benjamin Bling

About the recent redesign of U.S. greenbacks, the Department of the Treasury states on its website: “To protect your hard-earned money, the U.S. government expects to redesign its currency every seven to 10 years” in large part to thwart high-tech counterfeiting. The most noticeable difference in the new designs is the introduction of subtle background colors, like those used on current passports, “which makes it more burdensome for potential counterfeiters because it adds complexity to the note. The addition of color also makes it easier to distinguish between denominations because different background colors are used for each denomination.” The $5, $10, $20, and $50 notes have been introduced (only the beleaguered buck has been virtually untouched), and last week the new Benjamin took center stage to mixed reviews. And by the way, do you know who is on the $1000 bill?

Makes one wonder, who designs our currency? Are they anonymous for obvious reasons? And do they get samples for their portfolios?

Gang Starr Rapper Guru Dead at 43- The Moment of Truth – It’s Mosty Tha Voice

Today is an especially sad day, and I am shedding tears as I write this note. I just heard the news. You will forever be missed Guru!! I humbly owe you many years of inspiration and happiness. As you once coined the phrase, “It’s Mostly Tha Voice”, yesterday, the voice has gone silent. Rest in Peace dear friend.

Here is the track. It’s Mostly Tha Voice.

You’ll be forever missed.

Sneak Peek: Hundreds of Approved iPad Apps [VIDEO]

The hunt for approved iPad apps has officially ended, as the folks from App Advice managed to dig out hundreds of them from Apple’s database. You can browse the apps and see detailed info and a screenshot for each one, and although some of the descriptions are a bit garbled, it’s more than enough info to find out what the app is about.

The site is now fairly slow under traffic load, but you can still see some of the apps in the video.

Onto The Next – TMD

Today was an interesting day. This poster was drawn from today’s experience.

As the saying goes, when one door closes, another one opens. I refuse to look regretfully at the closed door, but embrace what’s upon the horizon. A new chapter has begun…word!

The look for this poster took a little longer than ten minutes. Plus, I nodded out at the computer. hahaha…

Oh, and I’m still rockin’ the latest Hybrid album, Disappear Here (thanks Dre!). Woke up to the track Break my Soul…I’m hooked. I effen love breaks!

Enjoy,
