You Gotta Stop By Bansko, Bulgaria’s ‘Flash Club’.


flash3 flash flash1

Off-hand, one might not think of an ancient Bulgarian town at the foot of the Pirin Mountains as the location of a night club whose design was inspired by the Disney science fiction movie TRON:Legacy.  Yet the Flash Club in Bansko fits right in with the smart set of this European ski resort that is also known for its jazz and pop music scene.  Sofia, Bulgaria-based Studio Mode with chief designer and founder Svetoslav Todorov at the helm created an eerie pulsating and swirling atmosphere through the use of reflecting surfaces and massive circular forms.  State-of-the art sound and lighting schemes complete the illusion of an otherworldly experience .  VIP podiums link up with the bar through beams of light while the reflections off the surfaces amplify the space and produce an impression of infinity.

Recently, Kia released a string of DC Super Hero inspired vehicles that, no matter how hard any tuner tried, they wouldn’t be able to come close to.  This line up of customized cars embellish the characters they represent to a T.  From Superman, Wonder Woman, Green Lantern, Flash, Cyborg, and Aquaman, Kia has really turned up the heat with these collector vehicles.

Demonstrating once again that its marketing department is full of geniuses, Old Spice launched Dikembe Mutombo’s 4 1/2 Weeks To Save The World three weeks ago, and it’s going viral to hilarious effect. Featuring the voice of Dikembe Mutombo himself, the game sets the tone:

“A kabillion some odd years ago-ish, the Mayans predicted the world will end on December 21, 2012, which is a terrible idea since we as humans have not even invented a self-combing hair yet.

“Someone had to defend our planet and prevent this from happening. And that defender had to be me: Dikembe Mutumbo.

“For 4 1/2 weeks, I will courageously battle to save our world and, with your help, carve additional time into the Mayan calendar to buy us more time on the earth. That’s why this game is called: “Dikembe Mutombo’s 4 1/2 Weeks to Save the World.”

Each week, the site includes a new retro-style game placing you in the huge shoes of Dikembe Mutombo and, with the help of Science the bear, pitting you against whatever pop-culture reference is currently threatening to destroy the world. The first week’s game sees the world threatened by a South Korean dance craze that ”is well past its natural social buzz shelf life,” and distracting Americans from voting.  Click any of the photos to check the method.

The Japanese Drum Machine.


Click the pic to listen.

So in my relentless pursuit of discovering all things related to foreign music, I stumbled across this funky little Japanese Drum, flash animation.  It starts off a bit oddly, but the tune that the drummers produce by the end is catchy enough to have you humming it for the rest of the day.  I’m honestly not sure who created it (or why) but if your at the office with 5 minutes to kill, take a look, and enjoy.
