You may not know the definition of a Suicide Girl (SG), but you know when you see one.
The Suicide Girl web community started as a two person operation out of Portland, OR in 2001, and now receives over 5 million unique visitors a month, plus hundreds of thousands of subscribers… Continue
Our friend and talented photographer, Charles, has organized an art show in Los Angeles for next Saturday! In fact, we love Charles' work so much, we're also a sponsor! Here's the post from the last time we saw… Continue
Alice's crochet post made me think of Twinkie Chan (also a Suicide Girl) ...she crochets and sells wearable accessories with a very quirky, cute, foodie twist. ...from sweet to savory these pieces are definitely unique and fun.
Clever idea from Honda but one that I could see be very annoying for those living nearby who had to hear the same song over and over again...
This strip of road in Lancaster, California is one of only a handful of roads in the world that will "sing" as you drive over it. The music comes from the noise made by tires passing over a… Continue
Talk about trippy. These are not miniature models, they are actual life size objects. Tilt-Shift miniature faking is a creative technique whereby a photograph of a life-size location or object is manipulated to give an optical illusion of a photograph of a miniature scale model. Most faked tilt-shift photographs are taken from a high angle to further simulate the… Continue
As much as we love to post on things that make us laugh, a big part of the reason why I love theMET is because it's a place for us to come together and write about people we find inspiring. Maybe they'll be our significant other or our best friend or maybe they'll be a celebrity or tech geek. "Sharing modern day experiences" can encompass so much but at the end of the… Continue
Goodbye Starbucks, Hello Meet! Meet is an innovative new concept in business meeting that is the brainchild of Sara and Marc Schiller. A two-story, 2,500-square-foot SoHo loft has been transformed by the duo, with the help of The Apartment (one of New York’s premier design consultancies), into a creative setting for meetings, conferences, pitches, brainstorming… Continue

If you're like a lot of us here, you probably started your social networking journey on Friendster. Then, you migrated to MySpace, saw the chaotic mess that it became, moved on to Facebook and then decided to join theMET. Somewhere your MySpace account is collecting dust and though you probably check out the latest picture from your hottie friend on Facebook, you… Continue
These fractal art images by Mistywisp are really beautiful. Fractal art is created by calculating fractal objects and representing the calculation results as still images, animations, music, or other media. I like the colors and lines she uses in her somewhat abstract… Continue
The transportation program at the Art Center College of Design has produced legendary car designers, including BMW chief of design Chris Bangle and Henrik Fisker, the creator of the Fisker Karma electric supercar. But this year, after professor Bumsuk Lim’s inaugural motorcycle-design class, the buzz is all about bikes, especially Jake Loniak’s exoskeleton motorcycle concept Deus Ex… Continue
Before you head out to your Halloween parties, why not swing by Chipotle for a free burrito? What's the catch? You gotta dress up like a burrito. Hint: I found on some sites that you can just wear a foil hat. Genius!
Should be taking place at all locations. 10/31 6p-close.
Lately, with the economy the way it is, we here at theMET have decided that it's time to focus on cheap eats! Sure I still have a few hot spots I'd like to check out (Apple, XIV, Providence, Urasawa, Osteria Mozza) but I've always been a firm believer that good food can come from anywhere. Lately, we've been heading to a supermarket for our… Continue
