Just Breathe (7 Photos)

When the Rain Comes in Silence

There's a simplicity to these photographs that draws me in. No grand sets, no overdone make-up, just a person breathing in, living life, taking in a moment. In these troubled times it's easy to want to wallow in the bad news. It's all around us. But it's these simple moments that we live for...the times where we think about a loved… Continue

Aston Martin DBS Volante - V12 Convertible is a Stunner!

Aston Martin's DBS Volante is definitely one of the best looking rides debuting this week at the Geneva Motor Show in Switzerland.

Both are powered by the same 6.0L V12 engine rated at 510hp and 420lb-ft of torque, and offer a six-speed… Continue

Awesome 3D Video Projection Onto Monumental Architecture

I've never seen 3D video projection quite like this. The visualization created on buildings, streets, and cars is unreal. Mad props to Easyweb, a French company that specializes in 3D mapping video. This is their 2009 showreel.

Lego Has the Best Business Cards Ever

I really can't get over how awesome these business cards are for Lego. The miniature toy figures are in the likeness of each of their employees. In fact, they even try and match the look of the minifig (down to the hair and accessories) to the person. Their names, email addresses and phone numbers are printed on their "clothes." We also thought that working for Lego was… Continue

Make Love Not War - Steven Meisel (13 photos)

American fashion photographer Steven Meisel stirred up some controversy for this awesome photoshoot he did for Italian Vogue awhile back. His "Make Love Not War" series depicts sweaty, dirty soldiers in the middle of a war-zone interacting with models in a very “heated fashion." Critics say that Steven's images glamorize the war in Iraq, but I think they should just chill… Continue

Alexandros Vasmoulakis' Gritty World (10 Photos)

Let's straighten it out

The gritty world Greek artist Alexandros Vasmoulakis creates is full of ironic-metaphoric language. In particular, it's about beauty and darkness and how juxtaposing the grittiness of the street with an aesthetically pleasing graphic design gives the viewer an unforgettable street art experience.

It was back in August of '08 when I first saw headbands and thought they were the prettiest thing. Many of you disagreed. In fact, my own sister even said, "Unless your a friend of Eragon or Legolas, I don't know how you could pull this off and not look like you're trying too hard." Damn. Point well taken, sis!
