That’s Not Relevant – Tucson artist and rapper Isaiah Toothtaker sees emoji a little differently from you and I. Instead of just a caricature, Isaiah looks at emojis as a form of art. His new book That’s Not Relevant is 72 full color pages that use rap, tattoos, and pop-culture as inspiration for the unique emojis. The book is set to release at the Tucson MOCA museum this Sunday, and is available for pre-order now.

Nike Roshe Flyknit – The Roshe came onto the sportswear scene as the affordable runner. For under $70 you got a comfortable running shoe that was sleek and minimal. This version of the Roshe didn’t last for long as Nike started incorporating taped seams, flywire, and a host of other gimmicky junk. Now, the affordable runner comes with Flyknit uppers and nearly doubles the original retail price. I understand that athletic sportswear is about evolving and changing, but this is one of those I feel should have stayed the same.
Fujin Vacuum Lens – When it comes to photography gear, there can be a lot of maintenance and upkeep. Making sure dust isn’t in your camera body requires a certain kind of meticulous attention. Now it’s as easy as changing a lens. The Fujin vacuum lens attaches onto your DSLR and sucks up all the dust with a flip of the switch. It’s currently only available in Japan, but the attention it is receiving from the interwebs should make it available in the US very soon.
