Nicholas Kennedy Sitton.

These photos are a result of how intriguing the concept of distortion translates to architecture and were created by Nicholas Kennedy Sitton. It creates a sense of falling into itself, like capturing a moment of demolition. Nicholas can destroy titanous steel structures with the click of a mouse and create new twisted versions of reality. He was also inspired by San Francisco. Nicholas had just moved there and being in a new city was disorienting and exciting and he wanted to capture how his whole world had changed.

Beauty And The Beat.

Some former American Idol contestants — along with a host of YouTube stars have have re-imagined the opening sequence from Disney’s Beauty and the Beast. Only in this version, instead of a small town in France, Belle is living it up ghetto-fabulously.  The parody, Beauty and the Beat, features some of the biggest names in YouTube – including DeStorm, GloZell, Miles Jai and Antoine Dodson. It’s as ridiculous and over-the-top as you might expect.  Directed by Idol semi-finalist Todrick Hall, the number is a bit like the parodies from the seminal sketch comedy show, In Living Color. In addition to Hall, the video features Idol alumni Katie Stevens and Vonzell Solomon.

The Price Of Being Batman.

The short version: protecting Gotham City is not a cheap gig.

Another little Batman related tid-bit I came across came from my curiosity as to the exact landscape of Gotham city. Not anymore. This map details every street corner and neighborhood of the city that Batman protects.

Ponsardine By Veuve Clicquot.

Maison Veuve Cliquot offers a new limited edition box, ‘La Ponsardine’, in the shape of a sardines tin with its traditional flap.  The innovative Madame Veuve Clicquot Ponsardin was born to a family with a penchant for wit. When her father was named a Baron of the Empire by Napoleon in 1813, he was also honored with a coat of arms.  In choosing this family symbol, Nicolas Ponsardin took a satirical twist on his own name, selecting a coat of arms that illustrated a bridge (“pont” in French) beneath a sardine: PON(t)SARDIN(e).  In homage to Veuve Clicquot Ponsardin’s clever origins, the Ponsardine keeps history and a bottle of Brut Yellow Label playful and fresh.

The 10 Most Expensive Foods In The World.

From food app dishpal comes an infographic detailing some of the most expensive foods in the world, among which are gold-lined, truffle-laced and wine soaked foods.  The most expensive dish is a $16,000 meat pie sold at the Fence Gate Inn in Lancashire. Filled with 6 lbs of Kobe beef, each slice will set you back $2,000.  What does that princely sum buy you? A meat pie marinated in two bottles of 1982 Chateau Mouton Rothschild, filled with truffles and Matsusake mushrooms, and edible 23-carat gold for garnish.  At New York’s Westin hotel at Times Square, chef Frank Tujague created a limited time $1,000 bagel stuffed with white truffle cream cheese and goji berry-infused Riesling jelly with gold leaves (pictured above).  And from BrewDog in Scotland comes an $800 to $1,100 pint of Belgian ale that comes in a dead, squirrel carcass.  Other expensive foods on the graphic include a $12,000 pizza topped with lobster, caviar, eight different cheeses and hand-picked Australian river salt from Italy.  And there is a Samundari Khazana Seafood Curry at $3,000, ironically released to coincide with the film Slumdog Millionaire….

The Loopy House.

This stunning architectural piece called the 360 House in Madrid, Spain eschews standard conformity by looping in on itself. The roof is at once protective and accessible as a walkway. Of course this means that almost no wall inside is flat but I suspect interior designers are up for a new challenge nowadays. Congrats to Andrés Silanes, Fernando Valderrama and Carlos Bañón.


Oktapodi is a 2007 French computer-animated short film that originated as a Graduate Student Project from Gobelins L’Ecole de L’Image.  It won a gambit of awards from film festivals all over the world, and even though it’s not the newest piece of work out, it’s still pretty dope.

The Mayfourteeth Look Book.

Introducing the Spring/Summer 2012 Mayfourteenth Eyewear collection. The 2012 frames were inspired by the tranquility of island life and wanderlust, and draw from elements resemblant to the striking patterns and colors of the beaches and jungles of coastal South America.

The new campaign was photographed by Dustin Aksland at his Manhattan studio and inspired by Ishla Grande and the coastal bungalows of Angra Dos Reis, Brazil.

The new collection uses a contrasting color palette of chocolate browns and carmel yellows inspired by the delicious torte and dulce de leche from the Villa do Abrao desert carts, mixed with moody blues and crystals reminiscent of the sun beaming off of the islands clear waters. Subtle tortoise and jaguar markings continue the theme of deviated patterns from nature.

Continuing with the theme of contemporary classic, Mayfourteenth’s delivery focuses both on texture and form. Thicker, bigger, and bolder frames all wearable from summer through autumn.  Mayfourteenth Eyewear is handmade using vintage Mazzucchelli acetate and fitted with optical quality CR-39 lens.  Made with careful hands and designed with sophisticated style.

Masters Craft Ceramic Ware Boutique – Tokyo.

The recently opened Masters Craft ceramic ware boutique in the basement shopping area of Palace Hotel Tokyo is pure proof of what we already know: nobody masters the art of minimalism as well as the Japanese.  Everything in this store, including how each individual item is displayed on the shelves and counters, manifests the skill of leaving all else out except what is needed for balance; of not being afraid of empty space, and of allowing every piece to tell its complete visual and tactile story.  The 45 square-meter (484 sq.ft.) store was designed by Akemi Katsuno & Takashi Yagi, founders of Kyoto-based Love the Life.
