Inspired by the DeLorean DMC-12, Nike 6.0 Introduces the Limited-Edition DeLorean Nike Dunk, a Fusion of Innovation and Style. Influenced by the DMC-12′s aerodynamic design and trademark characteristics, Nike reinterpreted the car’s sleek stainless steel exterior into a matte silver, no-sew constructed upper while also taking cues from the gull-wing doors on the bottom eyestay. The shoe’s outsole references the Delorean’s tail lights and the DMC-12′s rear window shades reappear as graphic lines on the heel replacing the traditional stitches. Meanwhile, the Belfast stamp on the tongue is a nod to the Irish factory that originally produced the vehicle.
Like the rebellious, rare and flashy DMC-12, the DeLorean Nike Dunk champions the unexpected by making a statement. This super limited-edition shoe will be available starting on November 26th, Black Friday, at Store.Nike.com, Niketown locations, Salvation (Irvine, CA) and select nationwide retailers.

Banksy's debut feature film, "guerrilla documentary" Exit Through The Gift Shop, has been named as one of 15 shortlisted documentaries in The Academy Awards' Best Documentary category. This means that Banksy could be a potential Oscar nominee or winner in a few months times. What a tantalizing prospect, if only for the possible unveiling of Banksy's highly guarded identity. He's the world's most prolific phantom street artist; so, hypothetically, if he does make it onto the final list of Academy Award nominees and then his name gets called out on the night, what the hell will happen next? Awkward silence? The return of Sacheen Littlefeather? The unveiling of an elaborate Banksy prank from inside the Kodak Theatre?
Hypothetical wins aside, the most interesting part of Exit Through The Gift Shop's spot on the shortlist is the validation that it is, in fact, a documentary. As those who've seen it will attest, the film's final third feels like calculated parody - high satire of art world dilettantes and those who buy, sell, make and fuel contemporary art. Many critics called it a mockumentary in their reviews but in the Academy's eyes - it's all real. Personally, I still can't decide whether it's more I'm Still Here or Beautiful Losers but I'm ecstatic that an artist this subversive can get mainstream recognition from such an iconic institution. God, imagine if he wins the Best Documentary award then reveals it was satire all along. You'd never see something more beautiful in your life.
Here's a list of the other films that made the pre-nomination shortlist:
“Client 9: The Rise and Fall of Eliot Spitzer” Alex Gibney, director (ES Productions LLC)
“Enemies of the People” Rob Lemkin and Thet Sambath, directors (Old Street Films)

Zonoscope is Cut Copy boiled down to their purest form, a suite of futuristic visions built upon primal rhythm tracks. It is at once their most immediate work to date but also their most sonically exquisite. 'Take Me Over' perfectly encapsulates this, its chiming highlife guitars bouncing around tropical percussion reminiscent of an island holiday in a pop song. (more on The Vine)
La Bombe is the brand new label from UK DJ/producer Sharooz. Launching with a simple goal, their sole mission is to release forward thinking dancefloor bombs, irrespective of genre.
Their latest release comes from brand new talent Opptimo, with his sample slain, disco-infused, dancefloor shaking 'Travellers EP'. Already winning the support of R1's Andy George, Mylo, Mason, Treasure Fingers, Beataucue and Larry Tee to name but a few, the EP includes the fantasic remix from the hotly tipped Phonat, and a re-edit by label boss Sharooz.
