Concept Design

Conceptual design is a type of art that focuses on hypothetical functionality. It is the creation and exploration of new ideas, distinguished from conceptual art, as emphasizing utilitarian, function ideas. It generally differs from design in that it illustrates the potential design for an idea. Conceptual design is a subset of concept art, wherein a novel idea or product is created instead of a visual representation which would directly be used in a final product.

As a young child I remember going through old Popular Mechanics that my grandfather had around his house and falling completely in love with the concept vehicles they had of the future. Sleek and smooth lines, and the bold designs of how we were to travel in the days ahead. Being much older I still have that tingling sensation whenever I see concepts on how beautiful travelling vehicles can be.

Unfortunately, for myself during the late 1970's, 1980's and the early 1990's design went through what I would like to describe as the dark ages. It seems that nothing could break this box we all drove in for decades. Patrick Swayze in Point Break referred to it as metal coffins ( and I don't think he was wrong with that description. It was a depressing time to be a young man and driving. Especially for those of us who grew up looking at brilliant and beautiful concepts of days past, and how they saw our future. Granted, there were a few gems during this time period, but they were few and far between.

And so on...

Thankfully, with the aid of computers and excellent graphic software - design has made its way back into our lives, and I for one couldn't be happier. I am seeing design coming out of the box and I hope that it stays that way. I also hope that the autonomous car age will never take driving away from the driver. But, I believe we'll be discussing the autonomous car in future publications a little more extensively.

Anyway, I will get right to it and present some really cool concepts I have come across recently. 

Long live the driver!

From the casual freelance designer - to the biggest names in the industry - concept design has always been a big influence and changed our world for what I think has been for the better. Concept design has inspired us and pushed us further than we can imagine. I look forward to the future of design and embrace it fully.

Jay-Z - Kanye West - Ni**as In Paris

We're gonna skate to one song and one song only.

So I ball so hard muhf*ckas wanna fine me
first ni**as gotta find me
What’s 50 grand to a muhf*cka like me
Can you please remind me?
Ball so hard, this sh*t crazy
Y’all don’t know that don’t sh*t phase me
The Nets could go 0-82 and I look at you like this sh*t gravy
Ball so hard, this sh*t weird
We ain’t even s’pose to be here,
Ball so hard, since we here
It’s only right that we be fair
Psycho, I’m liable to go Michael
Take your pick, Jackson, Tyson, Jordan, Game 6
Ball so hard, got a broke clock, Rolleys that don’t tick tock
Audemars that’s losing time, hidden behind all these big rocks
Ball so hard, I’m shocked too,
I’m supposed to be locked up too
you escaped what I’ve escaped
You’d be in Paris getting f*cked up too
Ball so hard, let’s get faded, Le Meurice for like 6 days
Gold bottles, scold models, spillin’ Ace on my sick J’s
So ball so hard, bitch behave, just might let you meet Ye,
Chi towns D. Rose, I’m movin’ the Nets to BK

Ball so hard muhf*ckas wanna fine me
That sh*t cray

[Kanye West]
She said Ye can we get married at the mall?
I said look you need to crawl ‘fore you ball
Come and meet me in the bathroom stall
And show me why you deserve to have it all
Ball so hard
That sh*t cray (that sh*t cray), ain’t it Jay?
Ball so hard
What she order (what she order), fish filet
Ball so hard
Your whip so cold (whip so cold), this old thing
Ball so hard
Act like you’ll never be around muhf*ckas like this again
Bougie girl, grab her hand
F*ck that b*tch she don’t wanna dance
Excuse my French but I’m in France (I’m just sayin’)
Prince William’s ain’t do it right if you ask me
Cause I was him I would have married Kate & Ashley
What's Gucci my ni**a?
What's Louis my killa?
What's drugs my deala?
What's that jacket, Margiela?
Doctors say I’m the illest
Cause I’m suffering from realness
Got my ni**as in Paris
And they going gorillas, huh!

[(Chazz) & Jimmy]
I don't even know what that means.
(No one knows what it means, but it's provocative)
No, it's not, it's gross
(It gets the people going!)

Ball so hard muhf*ckas wanna fine me
Ball so hard muhf*ckas wanna fine me

[Kanye West]
You are now watching the throne
Don’t let me get in my zone 
These other ni**as is lyin’
Actin’ like the summer ain’t mine

I got that hot b*tch in my home

[Kanye West]
You know how many hot b*tches I own?
Don’t let me get in my zone 
The stars is in the building
They hands is to the ceiling
I know I’m bout to kill it
How you know, I got that feeling
You are now watching the throne
Don’t let me into my zone 

[Jay-Z & Kanye West]
I’m definitely in my zone

Kanye West - Heard 'Em Say ft. Adam Levine

Wake up Mr. West... 

[Kanye West]

Uh, Yeah, Uh, yeah, uh, yeah, uh, yeah

[Piano drops]

And I heard 'em say, nothin ever promised tomorrow today.
From the Chi, like Tim its the Hard-a-way,
So this is in the name of love, like Robert says
Before you ask me to get a job today, can I at least get a raise on a minimum wage?
And I know the government administered AIDS,
So I guess we just pray like the minister say,
Allah o Akbar and throw em some hot cars,
Things we see on the screen are not ours,
But these ni**as from the hood so these dreams not far,
Where I'm from, the dope boys is the rock stars,
But they can't cop cars without seein' cop cars,
I guess they want us all behind bars.
I know it.

[Chorus (Adam Levine)]
Uh, And I heard 'em say, nothin ever promised tomorrow today.
And I heard 'em say, nothin ever promised tomorrow today.
(Nothing's ever promised tomorrow today.)
But we'll find a way
(And nothing lasts forever but be honest babe, it hurts but it may be the only way)

They say people in your life are seasons,
And anything that happen is for a reason,
And ni**as guns a clappin and keep to squeezin',
And Gran (Grandma) keep prayin' and keep believin',
And Jesus and one day that ya see him,
Till they walk in his footsteps and try to be him,
The devil is alive I feel him breathin',
Claimin' money is the key so keep on dreamin',
And put them lottery tickets just to tease us,
My aunt Pam can't put those cigarettes down,
Now my lil cousin smokin those cigarettes now,
His job trying to claim that he too ni**erish now,
Is it cuz his skin blacker than licorice now?
I can't figure it out...
Im Stickin around....

[Chorus (Adam Levine)]
Uh, And I heard 'em say, nothin ever promised tomorrow today.
And I heard 'em say, nothin ever promised tomorrow today.
(Nothing's ever promised tomorrow today.)
But we'll find a way
(And nothing lasts forever but be honest babe, it hurts but it may be the only way)

(Cuz every worthless word we get more far away, and nothing's ever promised tomorrow today,
And nothing lasts forever but be honest babe, it hurts but it may be the only way)
