I can appreciate the fact that Editor in Chief David Granger… Continue

I think these photos were taken by those same rebels that drew outside the lines when they were kids. Out of bounds (OOB) photos push the limits on borders and boundaries. By taking photos from different angles and using post production tools, these photographers produce a very cool effect. Collected here are some photos that really "stood out" from the rest.… Continue

Here's another concept that I would love to see in production! Designed by Stephanie Bellanger and friends, the Mobile Mini House is a house on wheels! Each room is separated by partitions - there's the bathroom, living room, bedroom, kitchen and an office all in one. The rooms fan out to a 252° radius.

If you've ever wanted to leave the hustle and bustle of the city life behind and completely disappear into your surroundings, I have a hotel for you. I have only one requirement. You must be ok with climbing a rope ladder to get to your room. A new hotel in Lapland, Sweden is a box made of aluminum and covered in mirrored glass that's stuck 50ft up a tree. (Ok,… Continue

Ok, left the apt. in Narita for the airport at 7:30 AM, headed to Bangkok via Taipei, contemplated just saying "to hell with it, let's do Taipei again", got to Bangkok around 5-ish, did the customs/immigration thing, snagged a ticket at the Air Asia booth near check-in (about 60 bucks US), got delayed at Gate B1B for an hour, finally got to Phuket 10-ish after the time change, grabbed the first taxi (usually a travel no-no, but at 200 Baht/~$6… Continue
One of my friends passed me along this video. I think it does a good job at shedding some light on our current economic crisis. It's done tastefully and it feels raw and gritty, much like the times that lay before us. let me know what you think.
Also if you can I'd watch it in HD at this link. The image quality is a whole lot… Continue
