New Article: Kanye West's New Album Will Have 5 Different Covers

Tuesday, October 19, 2010

Kanye West may be down one album cover, but he's up five more.

On the heels of his new album cover being banned this weekend, West revealed that in the end "My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy" will be made up of five covers in total.

"You get all five of them when you buy the album," he told MTV.com.

This weekend the "Power" singer's label, Def Jam, "strongly encouraged" him to shelf a provocative piece of artwork he claimed would adorn his fifth album.

Painted by frequent collaborator George Condo, the artwork featured a wolf like Kanye naked on a couch, bottle in hand with a naked, winged woman with a polka-dot tail and no arms straddling him.

West duly dropped the cover and tagged it "Banned in the USA!!!" on Twitter.

"They don't want me chilling on the couch with my phoenix!" West tweeted.

The rapper added that he had not thought about the response to the album cover when he designed it.

"In all honesty ... I really don't be thinking about Wal-Mart when I make my music or album covers," West tweeted.

Wal-Mart was quick to issue a response, claiming they never actually saw the image the rapper claimed they had banned.

"As always, it's our standard practice to carry the edited parental advisory version, they told MTV.com in a statement. "We did not reject the cover artwork and it was never presented to us to view."

West issued one final tongue-in-cheek comment on the Condo cover.

"In response to the reaction of my album cover," he tweeted, "'I'm deeply sorry if I haven't offended everybody.'"

"My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy" will hit shelves -- on one form or another -- on Nov. 22.

New Gear: IWC Portuguese Perpetual Calendar Watch

Tuesday, October 12, 2010

Aside from the date, day, month and year in four digits, the Portuguese Perpetual Calendar also indicates the number of days remaining until the next full moon. The display showing its course and featuring mirror images of the moon in the northern and southern hemispheres deviates from the moon’s actual progress by just 12 seconds in one lunar period. The striking colour combination found in the new version in white gold will increase its attraction to watch lovers and stargazers: the rhodium-plated moon-phase indicator discs wax and wane thanks to a midnight-blue cut-out display in a dial also finished in midnight blue. In the model with the red gold case, the warm tone provides a pleasing contrast to the black dial.

New Video: Linkin Park - Waiting For The End

Monday, October 11, 2010

This is the music video for Linkin Park’s song “Waiting for the End.” It was directed by Joe Hahn, one of the members of the band.
He says “It was my attempt to digitally crush us to the point that you feel the soul of the music through what has become the essence of us,” he says. “We become the ghosts in the machine. Some may say that because of technology, we lose a sense of who we are. I counter that by illustrating that we can get closer to who we are if we sift through the noise. If this sounds like it’s too ‘out there,’ just ignore what I said and enjoy the pretty pictures.”

New Video Game: NBA 2K11

Thursday, October 7, 2010

When you’re the #1 selling NBA videogame two years in a row, the #1 rated NBA videogame 10 years in a row*, and have collaborated with back-to-back NBA champions, Kevin Garnett (2K9) and Kobe Bryant (2K10) – what is NBA 2K11 to do for thenext act? Simple: Michael Jordan. The greatest basketball player of all time debuts for the first time in this hardware generation and brings his passion for the game to NBA 2K11 with an all new Jordan Challenge mode, historic Bulls teams, and even a MJ: Creating a Legend mode offering gamers the chance to be a rookie Michael and craft a new career for him. This is on top of improvements to core gameplay elements – including an all-new IsoMotion™ dribbling controls, deeper My Player mode with new My Career feature, all-new breathtaking visuals, and much more. This year BECOME THE GREATEST with NBA 2K11.

After all those championships and MVP awards, Michael Jordan has finally arrived -- on the cover of a basketball video game.

Jordan fronts NBA 2K11, a game that allows fans to add Jordan to their favorite team -- if they can first replicate some of his greatest highlights.

One of sports' top pitchmen during his Hall of Fame playing career, Jordan had never before appeared on the cover of an NBA-licensed basketball game.

Now the owner of the Charlotte Bobcats, the six-time champion with the Chicago Bulls said Thursday the deciding factor in doing it now was the opportunity "to connect to this generation, when in essence a lot of these young kids never saw me play."

"They do remember me from 'Space Jam,' but not from basketball," Jordan said. "So I felt like this would be a good opportunity to kind of expose them to that."

Jordan had input in the development of the game, which was released Tuesday and includes features such as the "Flu Game" and the "Shrug Game." The five-time MVP said he's received great response, adding that his boys are "totally going crazy."

To obtain Jordan for their team, players first have to unlock him by completing the "Jordan Challenge," a series of 10 of Jordan's most memorable performances that he helped select.

Among them are his 63-point performance against Larry Bird and eventual champion Boston in 1986, and Chicago's Game 5 victory over Utah in the 1997 NBA Finals, when Jordan shook off an illness to lead the Bulls within a victory of another title. There's also a 1992 Finals game against Portland, when Jordan could only shrug after hitting his sixth 3-pointer of the first half -- which the video game character also does.

"To me the toughest was probably the flu game under the circumstances, what I had to deal with to play and what was at stake at that time," Jordan said. "And the easiest of the ones that was on the list was probably the 63-point game, which is the only game I probably lost of all the highlights."

Once that's been completed, fans can place a rookie Jordan onto their current team as if he were in the 2010 NBA draft. In a commercial promoting the game, Kobe Bryant obtains the six-time champion for his Los Angeles Lakers.

Jordan, of course, would rather compete against the top players than join them.

"Would I do it? No. But can a kid do it?" Jordan said. "Can a Laker fan do it? Yeah. I think that's the beautiful part of the game."
