…Danny Kass likes yellow snow?

Danny Kass Zoom Force 1

How does Nike come up with the design for a snowboard boot like the new Danny Kass Double Tongue Zoom Force 1?

Apparently there’s a lot of weird mustard and yellow snow involved:

According to Danny,

The pattern is of a seventies flash back inspired by the music of that generation. With the old and the new we bring you a very limited piece to make you feel good!

In addition to the boot, Nike is also releasing an entire kit of products, including a lightweight shell and graphic tees:

If you like the design, or the song from the video, be sure to visit Nike’s site where you can download an MP3, view additional videos and more.

Suckin’ on some yellow snow…

…You can turn any song into an iPhone ringtone?

iPhone Ringtone

Apple might make you pay a dollar per song that you want to use as a ringtone on your new iPhone, but there’s a way to create custom ringtones using only Apple software that costs just a few extra minutes of your time.

  1. Open GarageBand.
  2. iTunes Library

  3. Drag a song from your iTunes library into the GarageBand window to create a new track.
  4. Cycle Region

  5. Click the Cycle Region button.
  6. Yellow Bar

  7. Adjust the yellow bar to the edges of the part of the song that you would like to use. (It must be less than 40 seconds in length.)
  8. Auto Adjust

  9. If the song is short enough, iTunes can automatically select the appropriate length to convert into a ringtone.
  10. Send To iTunes

  11. Once you’ve got your region selected, simply go to Share -> Send Ringtone to iTunes, and GarageBand will convert and then add your new ringtone to iTunes’ ringtone section automatically.
  12. iTunes Ringtone

  13. Sync your iPhone, and rejoice at your newly acquired ability to add any song as a ringtone.

It’s that easy.

…The iPod Shuffle loves to touch?

iPod Touch Shuffle SaleIf you’ve had your eye on a new iPod Touch, then it’s time to pull the trigger, because Amazon is offering up a free 1GB Shuffle with the purchase of a 32GB Touch.

(It’s also a good time to note that the Shuffle is now just $49, with a $69 2GB version in the works. I used a Shuffle a lot for running, and it was the perfect player until I decided to get the Nike+ kit (which only works with the iPod Nano), so if you’re looking for a no hassle, easy to use MP3 player, then the Shuffle definitely gets my recommendation.)

…Alex Mauer plays on the NES?

Alex Mauer Vegavox

Want to stop people from making MP3s of your music and then passing them around?

Just do what Alex Mauer did, and release your music on an NES cartridge. The album, called Vegavox, comes with its own menu, and plays through classic Nintendos. You’re still going to have to blow in it to get things to work though.
