If you're one of those parents (or aunties) that has wanted to pull out all of Elmo's red fur after hearing Elmo's Song for the umpteenth time, then it's time for you to get your hands on a Rockabye Baby album. A company from Silver Lake, CA has turned the Cure, AC/DC, Bjork, U2, Coldplay, Green Day, Bob Marley, the Beach Boys and even the Beatles (Kristin!) into soft, sweet… Continue
Perfectly cooked pasta is only worth celebrating in the States since, in Italy, it's just a part of everyday life. Located a few steps away from the Repubblica subway stop, the dishes at La Cadrega were cooked al dente and were nicely embellished with truffle oil and at 10-15 euros per dish, was a reasonable meal to have while…
Animal lover Stella McCartney has often used the silhouette of a horse in her textiles and fashion design. This time she wanted to go with a little more bling so she created "Lucky Spot", a gorgeous crystal "chandelier" installation at Belsay Castle in the UK.
Stella McCartney was inspired to create Lucky Spot as a response to the beauty of Belsay Castle… Continue
Sitting here in a rainstorm in Krabi waiting for the bus, rain drops the size of my fingernails. Ko Phi Phi (prodnounced Ko P P) was awesome, if just a tad touristy. 500 Baht from our our door in Phuket to the beach at Ko Phi Phi. Didn't get out to the cove from The Beach, but it was awesome nonetheless with water as warm as a bath. After that headed to Lanta. Ko Lanta was amazing, found a great secluded beach just to chill,… Continue
Absolutely love this short video created by Stuart O'Keeffe for Populous' song Man Overboard. As you know I have a thing for monsters, add in a groovy song and you've got a music video that's nothing short of awesome.
Is it weird that a 32 year old woman wants this? Ok, I'll tell my friend she's crazy. Plush Jobs is the newest stuffed person for anyone who wants to cuddle up to this modern day maniacal genius. Or perhaps you're pissed off that your Apple stock has tanked? Well, just bust out some needles and have at him.
Here's a nice, unexpected remix of one of U2's songs, Get On Your Boots. I wasn't too thrilled with U2's new album No Line On the Horizen but with a little umph, like some synths and piano riffs, he's made the lead single off the album a bit more bumpin'.
This remix was made at the request of U2 which makes you have to think - is U2… Continue

Designed by Singapore-based Design Act, this digital cloud skyscraper was a finalist in a competition to design Singapore's pavilion for the World Expo 2010. Entitled “My Dream, Our Vision”, the project is constructed from 3866 cubes of varying opacity that perfectly encapsulates the spirit of Singapore as an efficient, dynamic, cosmopolitan, and forward-looking nation. Embodying "xin" (or "new"), visitors are encouraged by music to post their dreams… Continue
Matthew Plummer Fernandez was kindly offered a chance to create a window installation for Selfridges' famous shop window in London. As Matthew began conceptualizing, he noticed that shop windows had similar functions as flowers. That's when he came up with the name, Apifera, a botanical term given to flowers that are specialized in attracting bees. With this in mind he adopted design traits from flowers to make the window as "dynamic and alive” as… Continue
Both a statement and a powerful ad campaign, TBWA\Hunt\Lascaris created this billboard for The Zimbabwean, a newspaper produced by a group of exiled Zimbabwean journalists. Since the Zimbabwean is charged an import duty of 55%, it is unaffordable to the average Zimbabwean and therefore only sold and read by those in the UK and South Africa.
You've seen the Puma Lift video but have you seen the print ads? I'm a huge fan of advertising that gives me an experience and boy does this ad campaign do the job! Light is projected to create both the scene and their wardrobe.…
As many of you know by now, I love stylish clothes at reasonable prices. That's why I'm screaming Hallelujah today for Topshop's big, grand US opening in NYC!
Topshop isn't Forever 21 cheap, think of it more like the funkier and cooler older sister to H&M. It's a London phenomenon led by Sir Philip Green who so wisely plucked Kate Moss from cocaine… Continue
