FILED UNDER: Hood By Air
One of our favorite street wear lines Hood By Air just put out this amazing morph video. We’re not the biggest fans of the line, but this great presentation makes us like it a bit more. It’s got a dark but classic feel to the video that we can’t get enough of.
Filed Under: Ooo the Irony…
The same night as the premiere of Sofia Coppola’s new film The Bling Ring, about a group of teenagers robbing Hollywood homes, $1 million worth of Chopard jewels were stolen from a hotel room in Cannes. The police report states the thieves ripped the safe where the stones were being stored from the wall and left with all the goods. While we aren’t sure Chopard agrees, we think it is a great PR stunt!
FILED UNDER: Maslin & Co Beach Towels
Upon first glance, these pieces look like regular animal skin floor rugs, but turns out they’re made for lounging on the sand! Beach towels just got a lot more fierce with Maslin & Co’s 100% cotton, hide-shaped extra large towels, currently available on Need Supply.

We got dizzy just looking at photos of this new fashion boutique in Warsaw, Poland that features an entire living room on the ceiling. It does seem appropriate for the brand Risk, who’s Made in Warsaw collection can be worn inside-out or back-to-front. That’s some gravity-defying design for sure.
Filed Under: Pocket Grater!
I have never been to Brazil, but I am already in love with cheese shop Bon Vivant for their ingenious business cards. Doubling as both a reminder of a cheese haven and a portable cheese grater, Bon Vivant has solved all my parmesan woes! And don’t you worry your little finger tips, the grater/business card comes with a protective sleeve!

You may already know of late writer David Foster Wallace’s commencement address to the 2005 graduating class of Kenyon College, but this new viral video puts a visual to an abridged version of his speech about life and education.
FILED UNDER: Ultraviolet
Possibly the hippest restaurant on the planet? Ultraviolet in Shanghai not only serves up top quality cuisine using advanced technology, but diners who enter the 10-seat-only restaurant are subject to a full multi-sensory experience, from 56 speakers to wind turbines and visual and smell projectors. Check out this cool video of how the kitchen works. We can’t wait to visit and experience!
FILED UNDER: Diddy For Downton?
Is this for real? If so, we can’t WAIT to watch. Diddy, a.k.a. Sean Coombs, just announced on his Twitter that he will be a series regular on the TV show Downton Abbey. Are the Crawley’s about to get a major hip hop facelift? Either his account has been hacked or we’ll be seeing him in Yorkshire sooner than anyone expected!
FILED UNDER: Say the Same Thing
OK Go thought up this game while playing on tour, but are now sharing Say the Same Thing with anyone who wants to play too. Basically, two players say random words at the same time, and then say the word that connects the two ideas at the same time again. This goes on until the two say the same word, and happiness ensues. The hilarious promo video explains everything and is enough to get us itching to play (though playing with the actual band members would probably be more fun).

FILED UNDER: Catching Fire
Although we have many many months to go until the actual movie release (November 22, 2013) we’re getting super excited over the new posters that have been spreading like fire throughout the internet today!
FILED UNDER: Food Truck Internet
Starting this week, New Yorkers will be able to get free wi-fi when they visit their local food truck. 30 food trucks, including empanadas truck Nuchas and the coffee makers Mudtruck, have partnered with Karma’s 4G mobile hotspots to give 100 MB of free data access to anyone in their vicinity. If you like the foodtruck’s page on Facebook you’ll get an additional 25MB. You can also choose to buy an added 1GB of data that never expires for only $14. We hope this trend will spread across the country so we can watch some youtube while we’re waiting for our carne asadas at the taco truck. Free wi-fi and food truck grub is unbeatable!
