It would be easy to say the Ticalian Stallion went soft by doing a Sour Patch Kids ad, but this shit is ill. I would put this up against anything I have heard on the radio in the last 5 years. A paid ad spot and still mad dope compared to your latest Weezy / Drake track, with no auto-tune and fresher Air Forces.
There are a lot of infographics popping up all over the place these days. Some are well-designed and actually informative, but a lot of them are garbage. I invite you to check out the work of Megan Jaegerman, who worked for the New York Times during much of the 1990s. These pieces are very well-designed, packed with real information, and deftly explain in layman's terms some pretty complex stuff. I mean, if you can explain how a knuckleball works, you have my respect. Check out a trove of other great examples of Jaegerman's work here.
A fresh Gallup poll indicates that more than 50% of Americans approve of the legalization of marijuana.
This particular strain is prettier than anything in my extensive rose garden, which is saying something because my roses are bangin' right now since we stifled the weeds that were choking them and got a couple of days of solid rain. The colors on this strain are sicker than anything I have ever seen.
If this plant were the face of dank botany, I think there would be a lot more people on board. Who wouldn't want to have a dozen of these flowering in the garden or in little pots in the kitchen?
There is some divisivness about the potential for tax revenue were marijuana legalized, but you had best believe that if something like this were to come on the market legally, there would be more than a couple of bucks to be made.
Diamond Shot is a project by David Roux-Fouillet, where he sets diamonds using a rifle loaded with a special cartridge containing a diamond and a very well placed shot. Check the video below to see it in action.
This site is still under development, but the idea has me on the edge of my seat. A New York subway station, never finished for over a hundred years and recently discovered, is soon to be home to works by various artists who have been secretly invited to put the space on artistic blast.
Sounds amazing, and I can't wait to see what they come up with.
This thing looks like a bit much to be toting around all the time, but damn this is cool. Essentially, this is a cluster of cameras arranged around a ball. You toss it in the air, and when it reaches the top of its arc, all of the cameras fire simultaneously, resulting in a detailed panoramic image. The only way for this to make any sense of this is just to watch the video.
Unfortunately, this is not commercially available as of yet. According to the developers site they are seeking investors to produce these. The cool-factor is so high on these that I think something like this would be a nice look for a Kickstarter project.
Nils Shoe Muelman a.k.a SHOE is a Dutch graffiti artist who specializes in Calligraffiti. His handstyles are exquisite. This particular project was for the Pink Ribbon foundation. Make sure to spend some time on SHOE's site if you are a fan of typography. The guy really is a monster!
I am a huge fan of lofts and industrial buildings re-purposed as live/work space, particularly when the result is something with really high ceilings. As such, this space really takes the cake. This hulking series of silos has been transformed into an airy, beautifully natural lit space that I would imagine would be perfect for inspiring it's owner, Spanish Architect Ricardo Bofill.
More jaw-dropping photos by Verve can be found here, and further explanation from Bofill himself can be found here.
