On Monday most of Mumbai, India attempted a return to normal activity, in the wake of the 60-hour-long siege last week. Some facts about the attacks are a bit clearer now, others still hazy. Based in part on the confessions of the only terrorist captured alive - Azam Amir Kasav, Indian officials now say that there were only 10 gunmen involved, all members of Lashkar-e-Taiba, a Pakistani militant group with links to the disputed Himalayan region of Kashmir - though Pakistan officially denies any… Continue
Paper+Cup is a stationary store that was started by a few old friends in New York. What I love most about their products is that they're simple yet elegant. Their silhouette labels, cards and journals have that modern vintage feel to them. Sam and I ordered up this line for our rehearsal dinner gifts and we couldn't have been more happy. So, if you're looking for… Continue
I like how Cuban artist Duvier Del Dago goes 3D with his holograms strung of thread. From the beginning, he has worked with the technique of sketching, which he has transformed throughout his career. A process of experimentation with drawing has led him to transcend the bi-dimensional nature of paper, bring it out, and endow it with new dimensions in space. The objects he freezes in space take about four days to complete.… Continue
Sure there isn't anything like picking out a shiny new vehicle and racing it around the neighborhood but what if you want to customize your ride? BMW has partnered with Microsoft to bring you the Product Navigator - a futuristic touchscreen that lets you pick a BMW, modify colors and content, and even save the finished project to a thumb drive to take home with you.

How do you get me to watch yet another home decorating show (yawn) or pay attention to yet another yakkity yak about eco/green design? By hiring Entourage hottie Adrian Grenier (a.k.a. Aqua Man, Vinnie Chase) to host the TV show, of course.

What nice wind turbines you have. Wind power is one of the fastest growing forms of alternative energy in the world. More and more, wind power mills are seen in the countryside, in large wind farms and for the most part, away from city life. But a new form of wind power is now designed to work in an urban environment. Who knows, maybe we'll all have these babies in our backyards…

As a hobby, Glenn Jones, a graphic designer and illustrator from Auckland, New Zealand, decided to submit some of his designs to Threadless a few years ago and as they took off he then went one step further and… Continue
I was talking to Sam today and I saying, "You know, it would be fun to have some sort of trademark. Maybe I'll buy some funky tights." And then, I saw these. As you can tell by our MMM chandelier, I'm into that kind of design but I'm just not sure if I'd wear it on my leg.
So I'm asking for your help. Too cool or "Alice, you'll be looking like a… Continue

GizmoAve - You are probably still eating the corpse remains of the 47.5-ton turkey your mom did for Thanksgiving. Which is cool. Unless the brother of that turkey has access to bricks and constructs a weaponized Lego Turkey Mecha to wipe your fat turkey-eating ass out of the face of this planet.…
These sketches are hot. Melbourne Illustrator Sarah Hankinson creates feminine yet striking works which play off broken lines and occasional splashes of color. Sarah’s illustration style is elegant, youthful, and strongly fashion orientated, many of her pieces focusing on the female form and made up from a variety of mediums including inks, charcoal, pencils, cut paper and… Continue
