Lanvin Hiver 2011 ft. Pitbull

-

A step towards the return of fun in luxury?

The ever so brilliant Alber Elbaz of Lanvin has just offered us a one minute sneek peek into his world. In this Steven Meisel directed video, models Karen Elson and Raquel Zimmermann dance to Pitbull’s I Know You Want Me whilst wearing pieces from his Fall Winter 20111 collection.  It is refreshing to see a large fashion house take a fun approach to the usual sober tones that surround this season’s campaigns, and Alber dancing at the end of it reminds us all that sometimes its good not to be taken so seriously.

Del Mar Food Truck Fest

-

Food truck mania has hit San Diego. Rolling to the racetrack for one glorious day only, the Del Mar Food Truck Fest showcased over 40 of SoCal’s best mobile kitchens, marking their first-ever time at the fairgrounds/ racetrack and the largest truck gathering San Diego has ever seen. It was a sunny, hot day and people couldn’t be readier for some tasty grills. Some trucks had lines of over 30 minute wait time, but it was well worth it.

Mariachi El Bronx: I Would Die 4 you

-

Mariachi El Bronx is the Mexican-style side project of punk-indie band, The Bronx. The Los Angeles group of five have been gaining recognition as an ingenious, stand out alter ego to their original venture. The mariachi doppelganger comes decorated with silver studded black charro suits, which makes them look straight out of Jalisco, México. They also use the traditional instruments of a mariachi band like  violins, trumpets, a classical guitar, a vihuela (a high-pitched, five-string guitar) and a guitarrón (a large acoustic bass guitar).

The punks dressed in charro suits are on to their second album which has the paisa version of Prince’s song “I Would Die For You.” Make sure to check out their new single, “48 Roses” off Mariachi El Bronx (II) as well.

Enjoy with some horchata.

I’ve got a fever.

-

I’ve got a fever, and the only prescription is more disco.

No, but seriously, I’ve got a fever… and a headache; last night was maybe too much. Aspirin anyone?

“You may have the money, but you have to go” Best intro ever.
The Bay - Metronomy (Erol Alkan's Extended Rework)

Some deep beats for the soul!
Mathematics - Tuccillo

Deep baby, deep.
Static Friction - Toomy Disco (Mario Basanov remix)

Disco always sounds better with an orchestra.
Music For The Soul - Los Charlys Orchestra

TUTORIAL: Tilt and Shift your photos

-

“Tilt-shift” refers to the use of tilt for selective focus, often for simulating a rad miniature scene. Too bad lenses that physically tilt or shift cost like 10 million bucks. Tilt-shift apps are cool, but you don’t always get the desired effect. That’s why I made this tutorial, so you can convert your, rather boring pics, into amazing photos taken from a tiny world.

Chicks with guns

-

It’s always cool to see hot girls with guns, even when it’s a ‘serious work of cultural iconography.’

In Chicks with Guns, Lindsay McCrum has created a visual essay of women gun owners in America through photographs of their love affair with their firearms. The images capture both the personality of the subject and the weapons of choice.

I think Sarah Palin has some competition going on.

Here’s a shiny, bitter sweet version of Rory Erickson’s punk song “Starry Eyes” by Veronica Falls. “What can I say or do for you my little starry eyes? Starry Eyes forever shall be mine.”

TUTORIAL: Barbarella Makeup

-

Barbarella (1968) is a cult classic starring Jane Fonda, one of my favorite movies. The thing that appeals to me the most is how sexual Barbarella is, yet innocent at the same time. She uses sex as currency throughout the whole film, but does it in an utterly non-perverse way. I love it!

fbFaces

-

fbFaces is a project by Joern Roeder and Jonathan Pirnay that deals with the issue of data accessibility on the Internet. The project is a facebook crawler, built using JavaScript & PHP, that starts at the public profile of any fb-user, saving profile image, facebook-ID and name, and afterwards continuing its way to the public profiles of the user’s friends and so on. 100.000 of these profile images were used (via Processing) to print a wallpaper for an entire room.
