In the eastern mountains of the Democratic Republic of Congo (DR Congo), a rebel army led by Laurent Nkunda - a former General of the DR Congo armed forces - recently launched attacks and captured territory after a peace treaty had failed with the government. Nkunda's forces are Tutsi rebels, fighting against the DR Congo government forces and U.N. peacekeeeping forces. The U.N. has over 17,000 troops in the Congo right now, but they are widely dispersed, and have been unable to fully…

Although it isn't photography in its purest form, I love the way HDR can really accentuate a photo.
Wiki's explanation of HDR: "In computer graphics and photography, high dynamic range imaging (HDR or HDRI) is a set of techniques that allows a greater dynamic range of exposures (the range of values between light and dark areas) than normal digital… Continue
What I like about Hayden-Harnett is that they carry really hip and cool bags/accessories/clothes that don't try scream look at me. Sure we can all appreciate a nice Louis or Prada bag but true style isn't about labels, it's about putting together something unique and interesting.
In the months leading up to January 13th 2006 I had been dreaming almost nightly about this car. I fantasized cruising PCH with the top down, or driving spiritedly on Ortega Hwy or at GMR in Azusa. It was something that I had to have. On January 13th 2006, a Friday, I got off work and decided I would drive up to a dealership that had an S2000 in stock. I didn't plan to buy a car that day, but I at least wanted to take a look. Long story short I… Continue
Goooo Schultz! If you vote, go to Starbucks afterward and have a nicely brewed tall cup of coffee on them!
This idea came up a number of times on MyStarbucksIdea.com, an on-line forum for sharing customer and partner (employee) ideas. Way to go for implementing it, Schultz!
From what I've read online it's based on the honor system so just tell them you voted.…
AdAge put out some stats on the buzz Oprah has started to create with the Kindle. Was it those 12 words, "I'm telling you, it's absolutely my new favorite thing in the world" that was so powerful or was it the $50 discount she offered with a code?
Both! In fact, it just goes to show just how much power Oprah has! The Kindle is now sold… Continue

There's something really fun, happy, and abstract about the work of Ferris Plock and Kerry Tunstall. I think I like it because it reminds me of the doodles I would make when I was back in school. If you happen to Denver, their show "Reconstruction" is currently open to the public at the Limited Addiction Gallery.… Continue

Now I'm all about the bling but within reason, people! Just because we can doesn't mean we should! No one should ever own this or I will reach through my computer and personally shake you. (Chris Rock reference. We don't hit or slap, we shake.)
Do I care that you have 2 megapixel photo and 1.3 megapixel video resolution, an integrated flash and are able… Continue
Oh man, why didn't I find this before Halloween? Cosplay is short for costume play. Basically a movement that started in Japan where people dress up as their favorite comic book/anime/fantasty movie character. Started in the mid 1980s, it's turned into an underground subculture movement where people are expected to meticulously imitate one's character. Recently, with the rise of science fiction/fantasy movies, non-Japanese characters from movies like… Continue
The more I look at Ron English's work, the more it grows on me. I think it's amazing how he's able to seamlessly blend old school European art with current pop culture. The opening reception for his show, The Secret History of Kiss, is set for Saturday November 1st, from 7pm-11pm at The Shooting Gallery in San Francisco. The solo exhibit runs through December 6th… Continue
