I hate to be the bearer of bad news, but unfortunately James Gandolfini (Tony Soprano), star of HBO’s hit show, The Sopranos has passed away. Gandolfini (pictured on the far left) reportedly suffered a massive heart attack earlier today while in Italy, resulting in his death. The passing of any individual is sad, but the fact that just this October his wife gave birth to their child makes this case an even more heartfelt one. His legacy in television history won’t easily be forgotten.

About 3 years ago, one of the funniest contemporary movies hit theaters and had adults and kids all over quoting lines like, “I’ll punch you right in the ovaries” and “it smells like big foot’s dick,” aside from many others. Now it’s time for round 2. Check out this trailer for Anchorman: The Legend Continues, it will be undoubtedly hilarious.
Nike SB’s “Firecracker” dunk pack has amassed a lot of hype in the past few months. These are definitely some of the more classically designed lows to drop from SB in some time.
Though their design is simple, the combination of the buttery suede and embroidered nuances along the heel tab makes these really pop. These will be available at Hot Rod in the coming days, so look out for the email saying they’re in.

Remember the Audi Quattro Concept previewed by the German carmaker back in 2010 at the Paris Motor Show? Of course you do; this is one sexy, powerful ride that got more than just Audi aficionados’ britches up in a bunch. While initially rumors pointed to the fact that this Concept would remain just that, German magazine Auto Zeitung is now reporting that Audi is preparing to bring it back for the Frankfurt Motor Show as the successor to the legendary 1980?s sports car.
From the pictures, it looks like Audi is resurrecting the Sport Quattro of 1984 as we come up on its 30th Anniversary, packing it with a twin-turbo 4.0-liter V8 capable of churning out 650-hp. New body work is also obvious, made-up of lightweight materials like magnesium, carbon fiber, and aluminum allowing this Audi to weigh in just under 3,000 lbs. The only downside is its sticker price, which is expected to be around $150k. Looks like it’ll be worth every penny.
This month has definitely been good to our Hot Rod Originals line. Peep the new addition to the H|R catalogue – the Pocket Teeser (yeah, I know that’s not how you spell teaser). Of course, it looks like your typical pocket tee, oh but it isn’t. We got all M. Night Shyamalan on your asses by screening an image of a pocket on. Consider it a lesson to stop judging books by their covers…because that book might actually be a tee shirt with no pockets, then you’re sitting there contemplating the meaning of life. Haha in all seriousness, roll down to the shop to get yours now. They’re offered in a grey/black and white/navy color-ways, but are selling quickly.
Die Antwoord has always been that super strange rap-rave group from South Africa that people love and hate at the same time. Their music is definitely…unique, but their image is fucking craaaaazy. I don’t know though, I kind of like it now. Her haircut is still the scariest thing I’ve seen in years, and I kid you not, I just woke up from a Freddy Kruger nightmare. Anyway, check out Die Antwoord’s new video for Cookie Thumper.
The new Hot Rod signature LA collection is now available at the shop. The collection consists of the classic LA tees and snapback hats in multiple colors to fulfill your closet’s color palette. Roll down to the shop to get yours now, it’s selling out quicker than we could have hoped.
