I recently stumbled across dropmark, a cloud based, collaboration tool. It’s super simple and crazy easy to get addicted to. I won’t get long winded explaining all of it’s features. Check it out for yourself. Today is the last day to sign up as a beta user. As such, you can get a free account. Just use the code “leapday”.

“Do Ya Thang” is a collaboration between Gorillaz, James Murphy and Andre 3000. The track was made for Converse and is being released in conjunction with their limited edition Chuck Taylor Gorillaz collection.

In honor of Malcolm X’s death anniversary, Yasiin Bey (formerly Mos Def) launched this “N****s in Poorest” video, a socioeconomic look at what has been dubbed “luxury rap”. Love it or hate it, at least it has a point.

Video description: Justin Timberlake’s impersonation of Bon Iver, in this SNL skit, is hilarious and pretty spot on.

Vodpod videos no longer available.

As evidenced by this post, I’m starting a blog, a repository for the things I find inspiring; a place to share the things I think are interesting; and hopefully a launching pad to foster conversation. This won’t be a crazy wordy site. Expect a lot of pretty pictures, vicarious videos, and bitchin’ beats. Quite simply, it’s the Shit I Heart, and hopefully you will too.
