The New Crunk

Krink.  Basically the gold standard in marking products for both street and studio environments developed by graffiti writer/artist, Craig “KR” Costello.  The most notorious and recognizable (to my the untrained eye) effect is the dripping ink aesthetic that has graced many phone booths, mailboxes and subway windows.  This is the stuff I am talking about…

This stuff reminds me of late night shinanagins in the LES.  Good times… Anyway, if you aren’t getting your fill of this deviant art how about tucking your Mac away in a Krink-ed out sleeve developed by InCase+Krink+Arkitip.  (yeah, I said “krinked-out”… so?) 

I am sure you have figured out by now that this has pretty much nothing to do with crunking… but if the mere mention of the dance has inspired you, check out the “how to crunk” instructions.

DIY #2: Digital Mix-up

Remember the good old fashioned mix-tape?  It was quite possibly the most personal gift you could give in the 80’s which is why I don’t have the heart to throw mine away even though I no longer have any way to actually play them.

Well, now there is a digital equivalent… Muxtape.  Muxtape is a new site that allows you to simply and quickly make your own digital mixtape (with its very own URL to share with anyone you want). You can create your 12 song “mixtape” by simply uploading any of your MP3s from you computer to the site, which then puts them in a playlist that you can reorganize and edit as you please. The songs can then be streamed by anyone visiting your muxtape site.
