Worried about the coming cold weather months? Well then the new Converse First String "Down Jacket" Chucks ($100) are gonna be right up your alley.

If you don't already know about ER Motorcycles check out our previous write-up on their BMW R80. It goes into some nice detail about their vision and the guys involved with company. But their new ER Motorcycles BMW R69S " Voltron" ($TBA) takes their vision one step further. This build by Blaž and crew is one of their most ambitious yet. Instead of a standard vintage cafe racer, they wanted to do something for the 21st century. Voltron is based on a 1974 R69S frame, which uses additional parts from an BMW R80 RT such as the engine, front end and wheels. I absolutely love the overall presentation of the bike. Right now ER doesn't have a website so check out their facebook page for additional details.
The Pacific Rim Movie ($TBA) looks pretty cool. It's about a future Earth where a monster comes from the ocean depths and attacks Osaka, Japan. We find out the monster comes from a portal, to another world that, is five miles below the ocean. The problem is that it is spitting out monster after monster, and they are attacking coastal cities around the world. In order to fight them the military creates the "Jaeger" program. Pilots in the program operate building sized robots to try and combat the monsters. Pacific Rim is directed by Guillermo Del Toro and is expected to be released on July 12th.http://youtu.be/zA92Rw6kNWw
