Tilt Shift

I'm surprised this idea hasn't appeared sooner (at least to me) - the pseudo tilt-shit effect applied to Van Gogh paintings.

There are plans to build a megastructure "city within a city" in Miami, which will include a tower 183 meters taller than the current world's highest, Dubai’s Burj Khalifa. Have a look.

I hate this sort of thing.

Some old stubby beer bottle label designs. For those of us who remember.

Extraordinary Records

Colored vinyl, picture discs, etched vinyl, unusual vinyl, shaped vinyl...a great new book from Taschen.

Boardwalk Empire

For its new series, "Boardwalk Empire", HBO built a $5 million replica of the Prohibition-era Atlantic City boardwalk. Here's a time-lapse video of the construction.


Pretend your browsing an old National Geographic article on aboriginal tribal customs - 25 Painted Faces from the Gathering of the Juggalos.

The Juggalos fascinate me.

Here Again

The sun shines high above
The sounds of laughter
The birds swoop down upon
The crosses of old grey churches

We say that we're in love
While secretly wishing for rain
Sipping Coke and playing games

September's here again
September's here again
