Watch the Official Music Video for Kelela’s “A Message”

Succeeding the announcement of her Hallucinogen EP, which bridges the gap between her acclaimed 2013 mixtape Cut 4 Me and her forthcoming debut LP, LA-based futuro-R&B singer Kelela unveils the video to accompany her slow-mo stunner “A Message.” Produced by genre-bending electronic don Arca, who’s beat-mastered tracks for a myriad of artists including Kanye West and FKA twigs, the hypnotic video chronicles a story of lust, hysteria and ecstasy as the singer seductively basks in pools of violet luminescence, severs her waist-length dreadlocks and transforms into a jolting anime hallucination.

Enjoy the video above and listen to Kelela’s track “The High” here.

Eytys Launches “Void” Line of Waterproof Luggage

Swedish footwear label Eytys is set to branch out into luggage, with founders Max Schiller and Jonathan Hirschfeld launching a new line of waterproof bags dubbed Void. Presenting a backpack, tote bag and document holder priced from $100-300, the bags come as a direct result of the pressures that Stockholm’s commute put on the designers. As Schiller puts it:

“As I commute by boat between my home on an island in the Stockholm archipelago and the city, I need bags that are functional and water-resistant without making me look as though I’m geared up to go on a kayak hike. It’s always been a ‘mission impossible’ to find a bag that is water-repellent and sleek, so we decided to develop our own line. It’s very high-tech— [the factory] usually make inflatable life rafts, kayaks, and army tents, but they didn’t have the right kind of material, so we had to develop our own fabric. It’s polyester-coated with matte black polyurethane and it’s completely water- and airtight.”

Keep an eye out for Void when it launches March 26 at colette, Opening Ceremony, Storm, LN-CC, and Très Bien, and for more from Eytys take a look at their latest batch of Mother low top sneakers.

Peter Thomas Roth Cucumber De-Tox De-Puffing Eye-Cubes

I love Peter Thomas Roth products because it’s one of the few brands I don’t have to pay too much attention to when trying something new (i.e. no need to carefully read ingredients, grill Sephora SAs…). They’ve always proven effective and never irritated my sensitive skin.

Daily Fantasy Hockey 2015: NHL DraftKings Primer for March 4

The NHL had some interesting action Tuesday, including a situation in Florida where the Panthers’ goalie coach almost had to come in an emergency situation. That was just one moment of intrigue, and there’s bound to be less with only four games on the docket for March 4.

The games on tap are interesting. They will feature contenders like the Detroit Red Wings vs. the New York Rangers and the Montreal Canadiens vs. the Anaheim Ducks. There are some quality players you can pick, and I will go over them and some other interesting topics in this Daily Fantasy Hockey primer.

 

Top Picks for Center

 

Overall: Pavel Datsyuk ($8,500) | Value: Bryan Little ($5,100)

Pavel Datsyuk has been red-hot for the Detroit Red Wings, and he’s got 51 points in 50 games this season. He’s the best center up for grabs Wednesday, and he has 13 points in his last 10 games, including seven goals and an average of 5.2 fantasy points per game.

Bryan Little has stepped up in the absence of Mathieu Perreault and is helping the Winnipeg Jets solidify a playoff spot. He’s a great value at $5,100, and he’s tallied nine points and 4.0 fantasy points per game over his last 10 games played.

 

Top Picks for Wingers

 

Overall: Max Pacioretty ($8,100) | Value: Rick Nash ($6,400) 

Max Pacioretty has been a force for the Montreal Canadiens this season with 30 goals in 63 games. The American sniper has six tallies and four markers in his last 10 games played, and he has averaged 5.1 fantasy points per game. The Habs are rolling along, and Max Pac is likely to be your most productive winger.

If you are looking for a winger that is both cost-effective and productive, look no further than Rick Nash of the New York Rangers. The Blueshirts‘ MVP candidate has 38 goals this season and leads the NHL in goals per 60 this season by a wide margin.

His 2.11 average is higher than Alex Ovechkin’s 1.89 total, according to Sporting Charts, and that just reinforces why you should pick up a winger who is averaging 4.6 fantasy points per game this season. He will only cost you $6,400, and that is truly a bargain.

 

Top Picks for Defense

 

Overall: P.K. Subban ($7,600) | Value: Tyler Myers ($4,200)

P.K. Subban will cost you $7,600, but it would be cap space well spent. The Habs‘ budding rear guard has 48 points this season, and 12 have come in his last 10 games. During that span, he has averaged 4.6 fantasy points per game, .01 less than Erik Karlsson, who will cost you $400 more. Subban is a consistent point-producing blueliner, and one you should take with confidence.

If price is a concern for you, select Tyler Myers of the Winnipeg Jets. Myers have flourished since his trade from the Buffalo Sabres, and he has played well. The Jets’ towering defender has seven points in his last 10 games, and he has averaged 3.4 fantasy points per game.

If still are on the fence about taking Myers, consider this. With a price tag of $4,200 and seven points in his last 10 games, he costs $600 a point. That is $33.33 less than Subban, who has cost DraftKings players $633.33 a point over the last 10 games.

 

Top Picks for Goalie

 

Overall: Carey Price ($9,600) | Value: Cam Talbot ($8,400)

 

Carey Price costs $9,600, but he’s been the best goalie in the NHL this season. With an 8-1-1 record, a 1.37 goals-against average and a .952 save percentage in his last 10 games, he’s the closest thing to a guarantee for a return on your salary cap investment.

Cam Talbot has an 8-1-1 record in his last 10 games, and has averaged 5.7 fantasy points per game during that span.

He is giving up 2.66 goals a game during that stretch, but the Rangers are winning games. When you weigh all the variables, Talbot is your best value pick because he keeps on winning games and making tons of saves.
