In the heart of Mexico City we can find an old building with a lot of history and a lot of cool. Finished in the XVIIIth century this old house now is the home of MUMEDI (Museo Mexicano del Diseño – Mexican Musem of Design), with collections of the most avant garde mexican designers. You can also find design workshops, exhibits, a very chic cafeteria and a small boutique hotel.
They have a small MUMEDISHOP with what is considered Mexico’s biggest specialized bookstore in photography, fashion, design and advertising books, a collection of jewerly, design objects and crafts.
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 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, 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
“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.
Hey playa! Deep beats to get you off the couch.Mateo Matos Vincent Inc - Want U Tonight (Ian Pooley Remix)
Lovebirds feat. Stee Downes - Want You In My Soul (Original Mix)
Charles Feelgood - Burn This (DJ Exodus & Reepr Remix)
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.”Veronica Falls - Starry Eyes
David Lynch, the filmmaker who earned a cult following with eccentric films like “Blue Velvet”, “Mulholland Dr.” and the ’90s television series “Twin Peaks,” is debuting an album this November called “Crazy Clown Time,”
All signs point to backpacks being the “next big thing” for Fall. Admittedly I was reluctant at first, as I’m sure most people would be. However, after discovering all the options available I must admit I am starting to find the idea of a backpack with a formal outfit undeniably chic.

It’s Monday, time to roll a fatty and let the tracks below take you on a ride down Crunk Avenue.
A little reEdit I made.
Love Me Love Me Now - Onur Engin (Hustlehoff Edit)
Love me, love me… say that ya love me.
Get Cha - LTJ
Don’t be confused by the hipster name of the artist, this track is nothing but fat bass and funk.
J2Thab - PBR Streetgang
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!
