Step 1: Do the exact opposite of everything Dom Mazzetti is about to tell you, or maybe follow his every word, I don’t know what ever gets you laid at the end of the night.
Here is an awesome video on what is mean to be creative. With the wise words explaining creativeness and the act of creating is a showcase of the Flip phone which was based on a concept conceived during a 6 week long workshop done by Kristian Ulrich Larsen, Ewa Sendecka, Jeppe Vestergård and Victoria Kusk. Remember, “Creativity is the opposite of routine.” (You can check out more picture of the 3-sided phone under the video after the jump.)

You’ve heard it before: Ruckus Juice, Mule Kick, Hillbilly Pop, Mountain Dew — the nicknames for moonshine, an often misunderstood spirit of Appalachian heritage. But just like your personal tastes, moonshine has also done its fair share of growing up, thanks to modern craft distillers. Now, the high-proof corn whiskey is not only legally available, but delicious to boot. And yes, it still packs a mighty wallop. Take Ole Smoky Tennessee Moonshine ($25+) for instance. The family company, based in Gatlinburg, TN follows centuries old secret recipes to create a superior moonshine using local ingredients from East Tennessee farms. Their 100 proof shine is even available with batch soaked cherries and sold in mason jars. Yee-haw, indeed. You can buy it here for just $25.

Then you need to watch this entertaining video which explains all that and much, much more. Trust us it is a lot more entertaining than one would think.
Being involved with architecture makes me appreciate building in the old days. There was no modern day machinery to do the work for you, if you wanted a bolt or a screw tightened, you did it yourself with a wrench. Looking at these vintage pictures of the building of the Empire State Building are really remarkable. Plus add the fact that I would literally shit my pants if I was sitting on an I-beam 80 stories in the air. These guys look so relaxed doing it like it’s no big deal. Here is a large collection of these guys constructing the Empire State Building piece by piece.
Check below for more insane photographs of the remarkable construction.
Lupe uses the exact same hook singer/production combo as Dre and Em’s ‘I Need a Doctor’. Lupe’s ‘Lasers’ is due out in March and this is the second single released, following the first song “The Show Goes On” with the Modest Mouse Float On sample. Damn I am excited for this album.

You may consider your hammock a warm weather fortress of solitude, but is it your only option? We think not.

Make it a destination for reading, drinking or just soaking in a moment of solitude — just don’t call it wicker. You can buy it at the website found here.
