For quite some time now, I've been calling Leo a fool. Who would leave the biggest supermodel in the world to date a lesser known? But then, I saw these pictures of Bar Refaeli, his current model squeeze, and it all made sense. This 23 year old Israeli model was practically born to grace the pages of fashion magazines. If you didn't catch her in French ELLE magazine,…
Interesting artwork is that which takes everyday objects and makes us think about deep thoughts like human desire and consumption. Either that, or it makes our stomachs start to growl and we we start craving orange popsicles. All Good Things…” is an exhibition of large, glossy, colourful ceramic sculptures by artists Tim Berg and Rebekah Myers. Each piece depicts… Continue

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

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
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

You can just imagine these Blythe dolls sitting on a rocker in some 10 year old girls room. The Christi Ricci wannabes look up at you innocently but they're ready to pounce and and rip your eyes out the moment the lights go out.
Originally designed by in 1972 Marvin Glass & Associates,… Continue

It's not that we didn't already know that there's a lot of work going on behind the scenes to make celebs look beautiful. (If we need to be reminded we just have to find articles about Kate Winslet on this subject matter.) But it's fun to see artists take an ad and turning it into a statement. The project… Continue
Oh baby it's coming! On Tuesday, January 20th, the world welcomes the United States' 44th president into office. I'm sure by now you've heard about the 100 unofficial balls and parties in DC, where headliners will include rapper Jay-Z, Elvis Costello, Sting and hip-hop singer Rihanna.

This gummi bear chandelier is made of gummi bears, beads, monofilament, plastic, metal and light bulbs by Tiawanese born, mixed-media artis, YaYa Chou. YaYa explores questions about food consumption and… Continue
I absolutely love this photo shoot of Olivia Wilde in Flaunt Magazine. You may have seen Olivia in the FOX drama House or you if you like slasher films, you'll recognize her as Bea in Turistas. An Irish-American actress, Olivia hasn't been branded a sex bomb like Angelina or Alba but we're sure she's right behind Scientology submission.… Continue
