iTableous


Welcome the  iTableous!


Once upon a time a strange man named Benjamin Bachmeier turned a 40-inch display into a giant white  iPhone 4! 


Now it might be slightly useless, buts it's gigantic buttons are fully functional - which makes it pretty cool!  


So what if its something no one will ever need, and that it has no particular function... I still LIKE IT

Google x Google

It's an ultra special Google Doodle today because it's dedicated to themselves!


Welcome to teenhood, Google — thanks for playing a big part in the awesomeness of the Internet but please don't try to take over the world.

NATURE, Y U SO BEAUTIFUL?


Speechless.

Though if I had words it would be:  Shot of the Milky Way in the skies over the Annapurna section of the Himalayas, by Anton Jankovoy — a massif with a peak elevation of over 8,000 meters.

Star Wars X Moleskine

Two things — I love Star Wars and I have an unhealthy obsession with notebooks. I.e. this collaboration made me go !!!


Moleskine celebrates a pop icon of our time with its new Star Wars notebook. So of course it made perfect sense to turn the pages into origami X-Wings and stage a stop-motion space battle, right?

Duh.

Stephen Fry hates Grammar Nazis

As someone who has an inner tiny Grammar Nazi switch that can be switched on when necessary AND is a major Anglophile with massive loving for Stephen Fry — this video brings about a great amount of inner conflict.



“The only people who seem to bother with language in public these days, bother with it in quite the wrong way.”

But mostly, it brings on the LOLs. So yeah, Stephen Fry hates you, Grammar Nazis. You may wish to proceed to weep in a corner.

Nicolas Cage is a vampire

PEOPLE OF THE INTERNET — calm yo tits because I'm about to show you something that is going to put years and years of rumours to bed.

Nicolas Cage is a vampire.


This amazing eBay seller who collects antique memorial photography found this in the very back of album that contained an unusual number of Civil War era death portraits. All of
the other people in the album, living and dead, were identified by name - this man was not.
Which can only mean that since it is a photo of man who looks exactly like Nicolas Cage, it is indeed him. Like the seller said, “Personally, I believe it’s him and that he is some sort of walking undead / vampire, et cetera, who quickens / reinvents himself once every 75 years or so.


The asking price is US$1 million (exclusive of $2.75 shipping though), which I find reasonable. I just need a little loan. Make this happen, guys!

VALENTINO X SINATRA



Another night, another party — that’s how the fashion folks in NYC roll. And boy, do they roll.

The Karaoke machine broke out at the launch of Carine Roitfeld’s gorgeous campaign for Barneys New York this week. The ex-Vogue editor and stylist sang a rendition of ‘Careless Whisper’ by Wham! with Anna Dello Russo, who later performed Carly Simon’s ‘You’re so Vain’.

All well and good but, nobody stole the show quite like Mr Valentino Garavani, who really did things his way with his rendition of the Frank Sinatra classic.

IT'S SO CLEAR NOW THAT I NEED HIM AS MY WEDDING SINGER.

Nyan Eleven. Never Forget.


10 years later, 9/11 remains sad day, tainted by racism, political bullshit and ignorance.

HOLD ON TO YOUR HOVERBOARDS


I will slap you if you did not get the reference in the title of this post. You should be ashamed of yourself. Terribly ashamed.

Last year Nike filed patent papers for a shoe with an automatic lacing system, such as seen on the Nike Air Mag from Back to the Future II.

Fast forward to this year, Nike flew a couple of journalist out to LA this week for a "big announcement", giving them only a few hours notice and not much else information wise.

According to Matt Halfhill of NiceKicks.com, upon arrival to the hotel room, the journos were greeted with a box containing  an iPod Shuffle with a personal message from Dr. Emmett Brown: “Welcome to Los Angeles. If my calculations are correct, over the next 24 hours you are about to see some SERIOUS SHIT!

Inside the box was an invite that went: “IT’S ABOUT TIME…an unveiling that could change the course of time” as well as metal shield glasses.

And there was a table of goodies that included mid 80′s candy, Throwback Pepsi (forumla from 1985), and a copy of Back To The Future all but confirmed the suspicions. No word on the announcement.... yet.

THIS IS HEAVY SHIT.  And only points to one possible thing: NIKE AIR MAGS.
I want a pair. I need a pair. My life would be incomplete without them.

Back to the Future indeed.

You're welcome.

Analog+Digital


Analog vs digital was hotly debated communications topic in university. For some reason it was more than just the way data was encoded, and it was likened to a set of thought and being. I'm not going to get into that because I don't remember much from my uni days besides watching Annie Lennox music videos for ethnomusicology class.

Anyway, in the watch realm, analog is better than digital. Hands down. If you disagree my mom the vintage watch collector will headbutt you. The only acceptable kind of 'digital' watch is the super exclusive N4 watch from French watch designer Francois Quentin, which is an analog watch with digital numbers. The badassness of the watch just further emphasizes why analog reigns supreme.
The watch displays time with orange numbers on black rotating discs that look like a digital readout. The cool watch is officially known as the 4N-MVT01/D01 and is limited to only 16 pieces. The display and movement of the watch are mechanical with exposed gears and sprockets. The movement of the watch is powered by manual winding and displays time in with a 12-hour clock.
This kind of reminds me of the steampunk movement, but in reverse. You know, new modern thing but with old fashion innards instead of new thing with an old fashion looking exterior.

This came in the mail yesterday


After a month and a half, I finally have my Epic Meal Time t-shirt. Fuck yeah.

100 years of East London style in 100 seconds

Okay so it might seem that I'm really into white people dancing. Which, to be honest, I can't totally deny. The Killers know what I'm talking about.

So anyway, here's more white people dancing! They've got the moves, though.


You just watched 100 years of East London style in 100 seconds — in a countdown to the grand opening of Westfield Statford City. Can you imagine doing the same dances over and over again in various locations for 4 straight days? Well, it paid off because this is such fun ad and definitely something different from the regular mall ad. You don't even see much mall ads! 

Opening 13 September 2011 as Europe's largest urban shopping centre, Westfield Stratford City is set to transform the retail landscape.

Anchored by John Lewis, Waitrose and Marks & Spencer (aka the best store in the world), Westfield Stratford City will be home to over 300 dynamic brands, over 50 places to dine, a 17-screen, all-digital Vue cinema, the UK's largest casino operated by Aspers, three hotels, a 14-lane All Star Lanes bowling alley and events and entertainment spaces.

AKA welcome to your new home, East London.

White people dancing to Pitbull for Lanvin

Yvette & I sometimes confuse ourselves into thinking we're two black girls from the hood with the amount of 90s hip-hop songs we listen to. Coolio's Gangsta's Paradise was basically written about our lives and Nelly's discography is real close to our hearts. 

I guess we're not the only ones because look, here are a bunch of white models dancing to Pitbull!


Raquel Zimmermann, Karen Elson, Lowell Tautchin, Milo Spijkers, and Lanvin’s artistic director Alber Elbaz get down with their fashionable selves to Pitbull’s “I Know You Want Me” in Steven Meisel’s Fall/Winter 11/12 promo for the French high fashion house.

This is what the video description says:
Primped and adorned in Lanvin dresses, two gorgeous ladies are ready for a night on the town. Just as we believe they're about to step out for the evening. they stand in position, fixate their eyes on their screen and on cue, start to groove to the music and sway their hips in sync. Moving to the rhythm of the beat, the girls swing their arms in the air creating a visual show, as the audience catches glimpses of the chic evening clutch in one hand and a bejeweled cuff in the other, with wind in their hair. Suddenly, the scene switches up a bit and in comes their two male companions. At this moment, the party has begun. The rhythm of the night and the synchronized steps do not delay the revealing guest surprise.
That is honestly the worst damn copy I've read in a long time. And the video? So damn awkward and adorable. Those bitches have no groove what so ever, but still. Adorable.
