Os Seminovos (The Seminovos)

From what I can gather from Google translate The Seminovos are a Brazilian  rock band with some pretty interesting videos. Even though I can't understand the lyrics, the videos tell the story and the bands got some pretty catchy tunes.  I came across their videos a few years ago and I'm ready to post them, however they may be considered distasteful to some. I'm recommending these as not be suitable for work, or younger viewers especially the last video. If your still reading well lets go... (Maybe some of my Portuguese speaking followers can make some comments)  Via - Os Seminovos Via - YesButNoButYes

Hells Angels Jewelry Lawsuit

The Hells Angels Motorcycle Club is suing fashion design house Alexander McQueen for trademark infringement. The lawsuit stems from certain items of jewelry being sold at Sak's Fifth Avenue, Zappos.com and Net-A-Porter.com having a strikingly similar resemblance to the HAMC's 'Deathhead' skull and wing logo. You be the judge... Original Copyright Image and the alleged infringements Most retailers have already removed these jewelry pieces from their websites. The rings were selling for $495(US) and the Clutch was selling for $2,325(US) Via - Luxist Via - TheRegister

Ferrari Theme Park Opens Today

Ferrari World Theme Park opens today in Abu Dhabi (UAE). A completely indoor complex claiming to have the fastest roller-coaster ever built reaching speeds of 240km/h. What better way to follow up their F1 victory in Korea than opening a theme park. With Abu Dhabi (UAE) hosting the next F1 race on Nov. 14, and Fernando Alonso (Ferrari) leading the drivers title, this looks to be an exciting F1 season finale for Ferrari. Via - Pursuitist
