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."

Yesterday will surely be one of the most historic days that we will ever experience in our lives. January 20th, 2009, Barack H.

It's really interesting to see how different people from all over the globe reacted on this very special day. Collected here are photographs of the event, the participants, and some of the witnesses around the…
Do you ever get an eerie feeling when you walk into a forest? There's a certain mystique and an undeniable beauty that the forest possesses. In these photos, it almost feels like we can jump inside of them and get lost in an enchanted world...…
Mary and Max is a 92-minute clay animation film that opened the 2009 Sundance Festival. Adam Elliot’s film tells the story of a young Australian girl named Mary who begins a pen pal relationship with 44-year old overweight anxiety-ridden New York City resident named Max. Personal stories always have a strong tendency to pull at my heart strings; throw in topics like friendship,… Continue

I know our site was "Obamafied" yesterday so I promise last past on our President for now. When CNN came out with the idea to put their headlines on t-shirts my gut reaction was "meh." And truth be told most of their headlines really do not belong on shirts. I mean really:
"What will Mrs. Obama Wear to the Balls?" - Who the heck cares? Ok we do but we'll… Continue

I like the design and functionality of this ship-like structure. Zaha Hadid Architects has won a competition to build the the new headquarters for the Antwerp Port Authority on the harbor of Antwerp, Belgium. The new Port House will solve the pressing shortage of workspace as it will be able to house approximately 500 staff in a single new building.
The new Port House design consists of two entities: the existing fire station below, and…
New video just came out for Coldplay's Life in Technicolor, a single off the album Viva La Vida.
Most of the times dolls in any form scare the crap out of me but when they start crowd surfing I can't help but laugh.
The video takes place at a children’s party, who all sit down to watch a puppet show. But rather than watching a kiddie play, puppet versions of the Coldplay members take the stage and rock out, even smashing the miniature… Continue
Chinese American couture fashion designer Jason Wu, who designed Michelle Obama's inauguration gown, premiered his Resort 2009 collection in September 2008. The collection of gracious, shapely dresses looks as though the designer had the first lady in mind all along.
It's official, Jason Wu, the 26 year old Taipei-born fashion designer, is a star tonight.
In an elegant, creamy one-shoulder Grecian style gown designed by Wu, beloved first lady Michelle Obama slow danced like a blushing bride with her love and the love of the nation, U.S. President Barack Obama, while Beyonce sang the Etta James classic "At Last" at the Leadoff Neighborhood Inaugural Ball in Washington, DC. The ball is one… Continue
I'm diggin' the new WhiteHouse.Gov website. Almost at the instant Obama was sworn in, the website relaunched with a redesign to signal a new era in government.
The new design includes more interactive features, a prominent photo gallery displayed across the top of the site, the ability to get e-mail updates, and a White House blog. The site's "briefing room"… Continue
There will only be a few times in my life when I can say that I saw true history in the making. Sure, we weren't shivering amongst millions who braved frigid temperatures to watch the inauguration live at Capitol Hill. In fact, in our t-shirts and jeans, we basked in the sweet California sunlight with a thousand other Angelenos today. One quick sweep of the crowd and… Continue
