Java titan Starbucks announced Monday it is raising prices in most of its U.S. stores by 9 cents this month, citing rising costs, including dairy products, energy, fuel, the CDs they are now selling in big ol’ display cases, the ovens they recently installed to heat up the new food items they introduced, and all the other NON-COFFE CRAP they are trying to hock us!

Hey, if I want coffee, why the hell am I paying for all this other stuff???

Just sayin'...

Skintight space suits have been TheFeed's dream since that chick in Fifth Element, and now it might actually be happening. Researchers at MIT are working on a Bio-Suit System that augments skin by providing mechanical counter-pressure. The  second skin could be applied in spray-on fashion in the form of an organic, biodegradable layer.

Plus, it's oh-so-sexy.

TheFeed lives for the day we can spray our clothes on and be able to show off our manly physique to maximum advantage. Hello, ladies!

Remember that gaudy high school class ring that you ordered and proceeded to wear around for a week or so until you realized it made you look like a colossal jackass? Well, the fine craftsmen at Jostens, responsible for 27 of the 41 Super Bowl rings, along with mega-game publisher Electronic Arts, are hoping you’re ready for another go-round on the garish-man-jewelry carousel.

The two companies announced on Monday a partnership to make custom-designed achievement rings available for purchase to Madden NFL 08 players when the game drops on August 14. The “Ring of a Champion” product line will serve as a kind of real world gamer score, available to players who have reached a certain level of achievement in the game.

Old People Rock!

So who is the hottest new band to storm the nation and light up the ol’ Internets? Is it a bunch of hot tens our Birmingham, New York or Seattle? Nope. Is it a cool, tough new rapper with eight bullet holes in his septum to prove his street cred? Nope. It’s Young@Heart, a group of senior citizens who cover songs by Radiohead, OutKast, Coldplay, and Nirvana and play senior citizen homes and events.

Fred Knittle wears his belt up high. His nose is tethered to an oxygen tank, and on stage he's confined to a folding chair. From this unlikely perch, he's turning rock 'n' roll on its head.

Don’t believe me?

Dude, they are on MySpace (www.myspace.com/youngatheartchorus), so it has to be real!

Watch them cover “Schizophrenia” by Sonic Youth  above and you will never be the same…seriously…never the same…

Shoe Division Joy

Well, kids, hell has officially frozen over.

The band that seemed like they could never sell out (1. because they had integrity, and 2. because the singer hung himself in 1980), Joy Division, are set to sign off on a pair of New Balance sneakers based on their landmark 1979 album Unknown Pleasures.

Ouch.

New Balance is waiting for final clearance on making the shoes, which will feature the ripples on the sole and tongue, and are emblazoned with the catalogue number Fact 10, after the band's record label, Factory Records.

American artist Dylan Adair designed the unlikely sneakers, which, if approved, will coincide with Control, an upcoming film based on the life of deceased singer Ian Curtis. 

Wow. Nothing is sacred after all.

The current trend of low-key silver, black, white and gray car colors is about to get its ass kicked by the upcoming new wave of “vibrant colors and glitzy finishes.”

BooYaa!!!!

Or so says hue guru Li Edelkoort, whose ability to accurately predict color trends has given her cult status in the fashion and design industries. She runs the Trend Union, which provides color forecasting guides two years in advance of the seasons that cosmetic, fashion, interior and product designers work toward.

On the other hand, who in their right mind would listen to anyone who calls themselves a “hue guru”??? I mean, have you seen what SHE drives (pictured above)?

If you could help the environment by buying clothes would you? Well, that may be a possibility.

Cornell University design student, Olivia Ong, has made her frist splash in the fashion world, and it's a doozy. Her new designs, debuted this week at Cornell's Design League fashion show, include a get-up that "destroys harmful gases and protects the wearer from smog and air pollution." Another design protects the wearer from cold and flu germs, as well as not needing to ever be washed. I think it may also get you a +4D6 defense roll against projectile weapons.

Okay, themed cell phones might not be your thing, but damn, Ericsson's Spiderman 3 phones are hawt.

The four models include the Cyber-Shot K800i, Cyber-Shot K550i, K750i, and the K610i. They come with 3 wall papers and a screen-saver, a carrying case and a hand strap. Sadly, this is expected to be a China exclusive. But still, look at the pics and want.

When you think of sun, surf, the beach and sipping Margaritas, you surely think of…Fresno?!?!?

Well, apparently Sammy Hagar does because that’s exactly where he is opening up his next Cabo Wabo Cantina.

Yes, it was announced Tuesday that the restaurant and nightclub will open this fall in a large complex of ball fields that is also to include future offices, restaurants and retailers.

"I've been to Fresno[, Calif.],” said the former Van halen singer in a recent interview. “There's nothing to do. I'm opening a Cabo Wabo. They're going to have something to do."

Hey, they don’t call him Sammy “Mr. Eloquence” Hagar for nothing…

Once in awhile TheFeed is thrust into the limelight. Like when we broke that story that Jared Leto hates blogs, or when we were at the forefront of the Aquagate 2007 controversy. Or like right now, when news broke that TheFeed’s own writer and head of production Joe Lynch (also the director of the upcoming Wrong Turn 2 and about a zlllion rad music video) is getting married by none other than punk icon Henry Rollins himself.

You don't understand how honored Briana and I are to have ‘Rev’ Henry making an honest couple out of us," Lynch told TheFeed. " We didn't want ANYONE else to be the officiant, not even Jesus Christ himself (who was actually booked). Seriously, who better than Rollins to make this the epitome of a Punk Rock Wedding?

Normally, TheFeed does not believe in love at first sight*. But damn it all if our heart rate isn’t still racing quicker than a meth-fueled Speedy Gonzalez** after coming across these pics of actress/model/Hot Chick Hall-Of-Famer Alyssa Milano, who last week debuted her new “touch” line of MLB logo women’s apparel.

Thanks to the former Who’s the Boss? and Charmed star, once the ladies get dolled up in these numbers, you’ll be extra-grateful for the “improved sightlines” at your favorite new stadium of choice.

Linkin Park frontman Chester Bennington has teamed with Etnies sneakers to launch a new line of shoes called Club Tattoo. The line is named after Bennington's string of Phoenix area tattoo shops which he opened in 1995.

"I'm really excited about the collaboration because it gives us a chance to blend our mutual passion for art, body and lifestyle in a unique way,” Bennington said in a statement. “Etnies and Club Tattoo live what we do, love what we do and together we've created a perfect connection between body art and street style.”

He then added, “Plus, this way I can make even more money for not having to really work that hard.” 
[Actually I added that…sorry]

The new Linkin Park album, Minutes to Midnight, hits stores on May 15. The band will launch another Projekt Revolution tour this summer in support of the album, with My Chemical Romance rumored to be on board.
