Fiat 500

I hate big cars. All of them.
I love the new Fiat 500. This would be such a rad car to have here in LA, though I would be afraid that I would be crushed by the fleets of SUVs and Hummers. It’s really too bad they’re only being sold in Italy, America needs more cars like this to fight the gluttony of American car consumers.

Continuous Kaiten

I totally ganked this from Search & Destroy because I was completely mesmerized by this video. While watching it, I thought of the Woody Allen film, Celebrity. I could imagine this being in a movie, while the main character’s voices are heard above the rest of the restaurants, until finally coming back to them as they get up from the table and leave. Or maybe the main character gets in an argument with the other and when the camera comes back to where they were sitting, the main character is there alone. Fun stuff.

The Techincal Challenge of Making Space Travel Easy by Alice Rawsthorn

I think going to space would be the most exciting/scariest thing ever. The unknown has always been one of humans greatest fears, but going in a hot ass Marc Newson designed spacecraft would make things a little bit easier in my mind. Astrium, part of the European Aeronautic Defense and Space Company, has teamed with Newson to design a Spaceplane, a “leisure spacecraft that is part airplane and part rocket. Their biggest competition in the space race? The power team of Philipe Starck and Virgin Galactic. No matter what though, the real winners will be the people getting a chance to ride into space in style.

Hedi Slimane Shoots Daft Punk

Hedi Slimane Shoots Daft Punk

Former designer of Dior, Hedi Slimane, updated his online diary yesterday with some really beautiful photos of a Daft Punk concert. His eye for patterns and texture is so amazing. I’m also pissed because the bastard got to go backstage and hang out with them… he knows what they look like!

YMC / You Must Create

YMC / You Must Create

YMC or You Must Create is a London based brand that was started in 95′ by designers Fraser Moss and Jimmy Collins. I saw YMC earlier today at American Rag and was totally taken with it. Their clothes are simple and well made, and would work well with a lot of other things you’d own. What really stood out to me were their amazing cardigans. Really great stuff to see.

Daniel Libeskind’s Royal Ontario Museum Extension

Royal Ontario Museum Extension

I just found this amazing picture of the inside of Daniel Libeskind’s new addition to the Royal Ontario Museum. I would love to take a trip up to Ontario and see the addition, which Libeskind calls ‘The Crystal’. It’s so epic and beautiful looking. The picture above was taken by Sam Javanrouh who runs an awesome site called Daily Dose of Imagery. Be sure to pay his site a visit and check out all his great photos.

Timothy Saccenti

Timothy Saccenti

I haven’t covered many photographers lately, so I’m excited that I was introduced to this guy. Timothy Saccenti is a music photographer/videographer who has some amazing work on his site. Everything is really dark and moody with brilliant colors. Be sure to check out his video for the song ‘Atlas’ by Battles while you’re over there.

Rocket Science

The last few years have shown a resurgence in the awkward teen movie category that the 80’s made so popular. Rocket Science, a story about a guy who stutters and decides to join the debate team to win over the girl of his dreams, reminds me a lot of Thumbsucker, which I loved. The movie was directed by Jeffrey Blitz, who also did he amazing Spellbound, the hysterical documentary about spelling bees.
The movie comes out August 10th.

Take-G Wooden Robot Toys

Vinyl toys are so passé. What’s really cool are little kids with giant robot friends made out of wood! Take-G Toys makes these really fun toys with all sorts of shades of wood, blending the old with the new. I want the ones above so bad, I mean, who didn’t want a hover car as a little kid? Hell, I still want one.

Check after the jump for some more fun pictures.
