Just when you thought you had seen the sleekest house (like the one featured in Eugene's post about the Santa Barbara pavilion), here comes an amazing one perched on top of Hollywood Hills. It's truly a design to kill for...
The 4,000 square foot house, which boasts both city and ocean views, sits on… Continue
The surprisingly good and refreshing French band Phoenix (the author of the hit called 1901 and song of the cadillac SRX ad:1901) did some flash-performance on the streets of Paris, all that shot and recorded for our pleasure:
I'm sure many people like me over here are photography-savvy without being geeks in the matter.
The thing is even though the marketing department of the top camera companies want you to think that megapixels is the holy grail of digital camera and that's it, it's actually not the case at all, in the contrary. Most people will need 4-7 Megapixels, and the more the pixels, the more the camera has to use digital processing to erase the… Continue
Well after having talked about "Home" the wonderful movie about our endangered planet, here is another kind of environment friendly movie: a movie made entirely from recycled parts of public domain b-movies... well the sum of its parts doesn't necessarily make it a better movie but hey, besides the waste of energy to show this "movie", they achieved their goal !!… Continue

Yann Arthus Bertrand, the famous photographer from the "Earth from Above" series of shot (see below) produced a fabulous movie shot from above featuring the most beautiful and also endangered places on earth.
It's a breathtaking movie and also eye-opener regarding our place and impact on this planet and what to do next.

Citroen, the French automaker that's not like any others is reviving the iconic "DS" badge.
As a reminder the DS was a car from the 60s-70s the was considered decades in advance compared to the cars on the market back then. It sported things that BMW or Audi are bragging about currently: self-leveling hydraulic suspension and turning headlight that were following the driver's input on the wheel.
Ok so I feel there's a lack of gadget content on the MET. So today I'm gonna present one of my favorite one (and god knows I'm a gadget freak !!): the Chumby.
What's that thing with that funky name ??
Well that's an adorable little box, super design and sexy. It's squishy all around and made of leather (different colors) and plastic. No button apparent. The only way to interfere with it is by pressing on its top (equivalent to home button on… Continue
Last I was looking for a large white vase to put some green bamboo stick in them to get a nice modern look, and some green in the dining room. I couldn't find any, so I found the exact shape I was looking for at Ikea, but in glass. Nevermind, I bought it and painted it white !! The marks of the paintbrush hairs make a nice effect on the finish of the paint.
bought the bamboo stick at michaels. The vase is filled with pop-corn packing… Continue
