Sophisticated, luxurious and expensive, La Perla's beautiful lingerie has been worn by actresses (Rachel Bilson) and models (like Top Chef's own… Continue
What would I have given to have joined the million or so Americans in Washington D.C. this past Tuesday! To see the complete joy in everyone's faces, to feel the excitement and energy in the air. A thrilling moment to see and feel history in the making!
Interestingly, the next best thing happened. A personal email made its way to my inbox. It came from a… Continue
Love the simplicity and creativity of this street-art piece by Katie Sokoler and Matt Adams. They make assumptions of what people think about on a daily basis and then attach thought bubbles on the walls of Brooklyn. As random people walk by, they snap a picture. What would be in your bubble?…
A new film debuts at Sundance called "The September Issue," which refers to the largest issue of any magazine that's ever been published. The Vogue issue is edited by famed Fashion Editor Anna Wintour and Anna's right hand woman, Creator Director Grace Coddington.
Why would this film be interesting to watch? Because Anna is an icon. Movies like the… Continue

SirMitchell's little shop of t-shirts on Etsy makes me laugh. The designs are almost as awesome as unicorns, Star Wars, dinosaurs, or Halo, but less awesome than a Liger. They're probably the best drawings the artist has ever done.
Those who were waiting for the romantic reunion of Titatnic's Leonardo DiCaprio and Kate Winslet may be surprised by what they find in Revolutionary Road. Frank and April, a married couple in the 1950s, have always seen themselves as special, different, ready and willing to live their… Continue
Looks like the Oceanside Museum of Art in San Diego, is jumping on the pop surrealist/lowbrow bandwagon. Jeez, who would have thought that this once completely underground art form would become so critically acclaimed? In any case, Lowbrow Art: Pop Surrealism in San Diego will feature art by Scott Saw (work above), Mary Fleener, Charles Glaubitz, Pamela Jaeger, Tim McCormick, Scrojo, Jason Sherry, Jen… Continue
In a long-overdue tribute to a man that created the original Los Angeles Cholo style and helped define what it means to be a graffiti artist, 01 Gallery is throwing Chaz Bojorquez his 60th birthday bash.
Of course, no birthday party of Chaz’s would be complete without a showing of his legendary artistry, so the Gallery will also be showing a collection of selected works in an exhibit titled Chaz Bojorquez: Graf Since ’69. Damn, that’s a… Continue

How can we do our part? Starbucks and Hands On Network are supporting the President's call for national service. Go into your local Starbucks till January 25, 2009 and tell your barista that you'll pledge five hours this year to help others. (Code words are "I'm In!") In return they'll hook you up with a free tall brewed cup of coffee. Check out their website pledge5.starbucks.com. You can enter… Continue
I love how long exposure shots intensify light and movement. When an image is taken including stationary and moving subjects using a slow shutter speed, interesting effects, such as light trails occur. Long exposures are easiest to accomplish in low-light conditions, but can be done in brighter light using neutral density filters or specially designed cameras. Here is a… Continue
Cowabunga, Dude! From January 16th to March 21st, herds of vibrantly designed fibreglass cows of CowParade will be grazing the streets of Madrid. The concept of CowParade started out in Switzerland in 1998, by renowned artistic director Walter Knapp, who had the innovative idea to hold an international exhibition of public art to raise money for charity. Since then,… Continue
What's the cost for stacked burgers alongside stacked waitresses? How about your life. The Heart Attack Grill in Chandler, Arizona is known for serving only fat laden, artery clogging foods like the "quadruple bypass burger" and "flat-liner fries" deep-fried in pure lard. Try to order a diet soda and they'll laugh you right out of the restaurant.
"Doctor" Jon, owner and author of "The Heart Attack Grill… Continue
For quite some time now, I've been calling Leo a fool. Who would leave the biggest supermodel in the world to date a lesser known? But then, I saw these pictures of Bar Refaeli, his current model squeeze, and it all made sense. This 23 year old Israeli model was practically born to grace the pages of fashion magazines. If you didn't catch her in French ELLE magazine,…
Interesting artwork is that which takes everyday objects and makes us think about deep thoughts like human desire and consumption. Either that, or it makes our stomachs start to growl and we we start craving orange popsicles. All Good Things…” is an exhibition of large, glossy, colourful ceramic sculptures by artists Tim Berg and Rebekah Myers. Each piece depicts… Continue
Today Askmen.com released its selection for the Top 99 Most Desirable Women for 2009. It's refreshing to see Angelina, Britney and Jessica not even breaking top #40. Good, comprehensive list I thought. Though Tina Fey deserved a much better ranking for "most improved."
Opening Reception - Saturday, January 24th, 7pm-10pm @ Corey Helford Gallery: LA
For his first solo show at the gallery, Joey Remmers creates a series of compelling visual narratives, many of which are adaptations from his favorite novels and short stories. Inspired by authors Stephen King, Chuck Palahniuk, Michael Chabon and Dean Koontz, Remmers employs the… Continue
