By now I'm sure you all have heard about the sudden death of DJ AM. I've seen him perform live a few times. The last time I saw him was at a Palm Centro/Verizon party my good friend Vic invited us to. The way… Continue

The Burden of Carrying Our Emotions - Dan May

The Persuasion of Penelope

Step into the mysterious world of Dan May and you'll find yourself amongst a large gathering of monsters. At first they may seem scary, but take a closer look and you'll find lonely creatures looking to find meaning in this world. The question is, are they really there?

Experience Fashion's Night Out on Sept 10th!

Alright, so P-Diddy is getting on my nerves in this spot for Fashion's Night Out but I like it anyway. Celebs, designers and models have all gotten together to try and get you to shop. A little shallow perhaps? Yes, but since they're making this an extravaganza (i.e. experience), I had to post on it. Also, doesn't it make you feel a little bit better that everyone (even people in the fashion industry) is hurting for business?

Here's the 411 from their… Continue

It's Ok, I've Got You

I love this piece of mosaic art by Laura Pattison. This original piece was created out of a photograph that she had been keeping for quite some time. Made of stained glass, tiles, pebbles, shells, sand and more, it magically captures a beautiful moment in time.

"It's for my son's 30th birthday present, it's of him and his daughter Lois. I took the photo… Continue

It's Alessandra Ambrosio, Like You've Never Seen Her Before

Though this spread of Alessandra Ambrosio by Nino Munoz isn't quite new, we're sure that you'll forgive us. It first debuted in the June 2008 issue of Arena UK. The Brazilian bombshell sexes it up and makes us feel a bit..well, you know...faint.

Does anyone else need a cold shower after that?

The Funniest Trailer I've Seen Recently

The Men Who Stare at Goats looks awesome! The movie is an eye-opening look at the government’s attempts to harness paranormal abilities to combat its enemies. It's a quirky dark comedy inspired by a real life story you will hardly believe is actually true!

A stellar cast (George Clooney, Ewan McGregor, Kevin Spacey, and Jeff Bridges), a hilarious storyline and an awesome trailer. I can't wait for this movie!

It's due out November 6,… Continue

Let's Experience the World's Biggest Tomato Fight

Please Lord, before I die, let me be pelted with thousand of tomatoes. I'll make my way over to Spain to participate in the world famous La Tomatina festival. There, I'll get battered and bruised up, and for an intense hour or two I'll remember why tomatoes belong safely in my stomach and not splattered on my face.

The New Modern Man is Dressed in Tom Ford

What does the new modern man look like and how does he dress? If I had it my way, he would dress like Jon Kortajarena, here for Tom Ford. New modern luxury looks like this. Sure the glasses are a bit geeky but the style is just right. Mix and match patterns, add texture to your suits, make it unexpected, give us a show. Be daring, be different, and most of all be…
