ADULT SWIM X STORM X MITCHELL & NESS LOITER SQUAD SNAPBACK
For a group of kids who asked Cartoon Network if they could make a TV show years ago to a group of kids that now run one of the most-watched programs on Adult Swim, Loiter Squad has done well rounding the corner into its second season on the air. Danish retailer Storm has teamed up with Odd Future and streetwear trendsetters Mitchell & Ness for an exclusive capsule collection, which is already available at the Roskilde Music Festival in Denmark. A run of collaborative shirts will also be available at Storm soon.
In one of the more exciting collaborations to hit the fine art and animation worlds this year, Juxtapoz has teamed up with Cartoon Network’s Adult Swim for a complete takeover of their July 2012 issue. Not only is the entire magazine expressed through an Adult Swim filter - from profiles to features and photos to reviews - but the website is being updated constantly with new content and collaborations as well. Head over to their site to take advantage of their current deal which provides this month’s magazine free with an additional 12 issues in their mail order subscription package.
Remember those incredible Beavis and Butthead busts that took the internet by storm a short while ago? Well the artist, Kevin Kirkpatrick, has teamed up with Juxtapoz to bring to life another animated adult cartoon with this bust of Carl Brutananadilewski from Aqua Teen Hunger Force that’s equally amazing. The sculpture is one of the first pieces of content released from the upcoming collaboration between Juxtapoz and Adult Swim for their July 2012 issue, which you can pick up now at Juxtapoz’ site, where you can also see more images of the sculpture’s creation process.
After returning from a boarding school in Samoa, fan-favorite Earl Sweatshirt returned to Odd Future in their biggest year yet. With a posse track that features the entirety of OF inculding Tyler, The Creator, Hodgy Beats, Domo Genesis, Jasper, Taco, and more, Earl comes in at 7:03 and kills it. You don’t have to listen for long to know that he deserves all of the respect and hype he has attracted. You can buy the OF Tape: Vol. 2 album here tomorrow.
Hot on the heels of the official trailer for Adult Swim’s newest sensation from hip hop problem children Odd Future, the Loiter Squad hype train has a bit of competition with Cartoon Network’s late-night crowd from this amazing trailer for a video game based on Adventure Time.
While the artist claims to have made it just for fun, it’s super dope and would be great as an Xbox Live Arcade game or something similar.
