So, there are these things called Bot Flies... Heard of em?
The genus Dermatobia contains only one species, D. hominis, the only species of bot fly that attacks humans (in addition to other primates). It is also known as the torsalo. In this species, the fly's eggs are vectored by mosquitoes and muscoid flies; the female Dermatobia captures the mosquito and attaches its eggs to the body of it, then releases it. Either the eggs hatch while the… Continue
Coffee Bean was nice enough to give the Met 20 free coupons to try out the Yogurt Iced Blendeds! No catch!
They know that you are a discerning bunch and that you'll spread the word if you truly enjoy it.
They have 3 flavors: strawberry (pictured above)...
These are so cool - good blend of design, functionality, and comfort.
"Based on their passion for mid-century design, skateboard culture, and the SoCal lifestyle, designers Pierre Andre Senizergues and Gil Le Bon de LaPointe have launched a new company that makes sleek, gorgeous post modern furnishings and accessories out of recycled second hand skate board products. Skate Study House is quintessential California - skater cool, mid-century… Continue
Finally! A restaurant that lives up to the Yelp hype! Joom Cafe doesn't look like much from outside. We actually wondered if we were at the right place once we arrived at the tiny strip-mall. As we walked inside, we were pleasantly surprised at their interior decorating. Very modern..
Sometimes the best food isn't the most expensive and Joom Bangkok Cafe is… Continue
Found this on Digg. it looks like she was first arrested in 83', I could be wrong. The first shot compaired to the last is just heartbreaking. less than 15 years of drugs, and the hard life aged her 30 years
Bar Noir is a really small bar inside Maison 140 Hotel in Beverly Hills. The lounge area can fit about 15-20 people max. The interior decoration of this inn-like hotel reminds me of something I would find inside the Viceroy - very modern and chic.
Unlike the Cameo Bar inside the Viceroy, Bar Noir is secluded and intimate. Perfect if you want to get away from the hustle and bustle of the city and are looking for privacy. I went there on a… Continue

I had pretty high expectations when I saw that Ronin Izakaya Bistro in West Hollywood received a 4.5 (out of 5) rating on yelp. The place is pretty small, can fit about 50-60 people max and is decked out with samurai swords and old-school Japanese movies projected on the walls.…
Sam Flores was born in 1975, immersed in the stark beauty of the New Mexico desert. In 1995, he moved to San Francisco. His focal medium is paint on maps, blue prints and canvas. These paintings touch classic themes of "natural beauty," which is in obvious contrast to his life in the urban landscape. The rich flora of his recent work can be compared to the nouveau stylings of Alphonse Mucha. His figures tend to be somewhat anonymous, even masked in… Continue

So after all that food..it's finally time to get into the reason why we came to Cambridge...the Berkman Center for Internet & Society! Seth Young manages the Communications efforts. He was kind enough to sit down with me and Sam for a very interesting talk about Berkman's work in… Continue
Yesterday morning's breakfast. Sam and I had slept really late, around 1:30a and we had to get up the next day to grab breakfast before heading off to the Berkman Center. Now Sam is not a morning person...I have learned (after 13 hard years) that it is better to let a tired man have his coffee before you begin talking to him.
So we wake up around 7:30a and head out to breakfast at… Continue
According to the Pixar Blog: "These wonderful never before seen (by the non-Comic-Con-attending public) images of Carl and Russell from Up, as well Carl's house surrounded by development and the hand-drawn concept art, have been uploaded to Flickr. They're actually photographs of five of the still images that were shown at Comic-Con in San Diego"…
I heard so many great things about Urth Caffe I had to check it out for myself. Did it live up to all the hype? Absolutely!! This place is really creative in its menu and I love that every item has a healthy twist. They're known for there organic coffee's, but definitely have much more to offer than just an ordinary cup of Joe.
a strawberry and banana smoothie, (thanks for the tip Alice) and a soy divine chai tea… Continue
