Best Made Company axes have a new series of short films coming this Fall entitled CHOP. Succinctly described as “celebrating the collision between a Best Made axe and wood,” the seductively destructive 30 second teaser already has us itching for more. Directed by Finn O’Hara with music by Nico Muhly.
I know I haven’t provided you with your daily does of architecture lately so I’m coming back full force with this ridiculous residence. Palais Bulles is a home to famous French stylist Pierre Cardin. Amazing architecture and its size is stunning. The house is facing the bay of Cannes and has a territory of 1,200m² and gardens, and swimming pools spread on 8,500m ² territory. It is something out of this world, maybe not the most beautiful but I wouldn’t mind to spend there some time. This masterpiece of modern architecture is located 10 km away from Cannes and was built in 1989. Occupies the territory of 1200 square meters. In addition to the villa in the surrounding area are situated amphitheater with 500 seats, a garden with various water round pools.

Locks of love are the padlocks fixed by loving couples, on to a fence or a pole or metallic chain/string alongside some wall etc at a public place, to symbolize their eternal love. A couple would hang a padlock after inscribing their name or initials on it and throw the key away so that their love is locked forever. Some couple use two inter-twined locks, each lock bearing their name/initials. Besides lovers, often family members and close friends also put such locks at these places, to lock their relationship forever.
The tradition probably originated from China where the love locks can be seen at several locations alongside the Great Wall of China and also in many temples and on the steps/paths leading to sacred peaks.The tradition has spread around the World and is now quite prevalent in South Korea, Japan, Guam, Italy, Hungary, Latvia, Russia, USA etc.

This makes me feel old. One day when someone finally cracks time travel, I’m going straight back to the 90s. Here is a nice little quick mix of all things 90′s set to a solid 90′s track, cowabunga dude.
Provided by the awesome research of Stefanie Gray, in this song, Ludacris brags about the area codes where he knows women, whom he refers to as ‘hoes’,” says Ms Gray, who plotted out all the area codes mentioned in this song on a map of the United States. She arrived at some interesting conclusions as to the locations of this rapper’s preferred female companionship:
* “Ludacris heavily favors the East Coast to the West, save for Seattle, San Francisco, Sacramento, and Las Vegas.”
* “Ludacris travels frequently along the Boswash corridor.”
* “There is a ‘ho belt‘ phenomenon nearly synonymous with the ‘Bible Belt’.”
* “Ludacris has hoes in the entire state of Maryland.”
* “Ludacris has a disproportionate ho-zone in rural Nebraska. He might favor white women as much as he does black women, or perhaps, girls who farm.”
* “Ludacris’s ideal ‘ho-highway’ would be I-95.”
* “Ludacris has hoes in the Midway and Wake Islands. Only scientists are allowed to inhabit the Midway Islands, and only military personnel may inhabit the Wake Islands. Draw your own conclusion.”
So this list might really surprise you, here are 10 artists and bands who are (or were) giants in the music industry but have never had a top 40 hit. The list pretty much is an all star list of music hall of famers for the most part but never were played heavy on the radio. This just goes to show you the garbage the radio waves spit out every day. They are an industry of trends and fads that ignore musical creativity and talent. They want you to hear the exact same bubble gum shit over and over and over again all day. So while this is a shocking list, it takes nothing away from the talent and super stardom each artist and or band has received over the years.
1. Bob Marley.
Closest: “Iron Lion Zion”, #11 on alternative chart in 1992
I just couldn’t believe this but it’s true. While every single college kid ever had bought (pre-1998) or downloaded (post-1998) the album “Legend”… and many have had a terrible ill-advised “white poser rasta phase” in the wake of said acquisition… not a single one of the iconic songs from that album ever cracked the overall top 40. Not even the top 100. In a weird twist, Ziggy Marley actually has had a top 40 song, with “Tomorrow People”. Which, with all due respect to Ziggy, is like the American people passed over prime rib for the weird brother of prime rib.
Closest: “Express Yourself”, #2 on rap chart in 1989
Sure, they changed the rap genre forever… but that wasn’t good enough to make Whitey play their music on the radio. (The top 40 takes into account sales and airplay.) They never even came close. Still, they were more successful than the other NWA — Northwest Airlines. That NWA has never been on the top of ANY list.
The sun is pretty much in every picture that you take outside so it’s not a bad idea to incorporate it into your photos. Here are some clever and cool examples of using the sun as a nice little prop for your photography.
Ken Block and DC are back at it again in Gymkhana. We’ve covered the previous episodes but if you missed it you can check the first on here, and another here. Shot just south of Paris, France in Linas at l’Autodrome de Linas –Montlhéry, this 1.58 mile oval track, built in 1924, features banks as steep as 51 degrees, which is more than double the standard incline of most NASCAR ovals. Chosen by Ken for this specific reason, the ramp-like banking proved to be a unique and exciting challenge. The driving physics for the stunts performed were totally unknown until Ken attempted the maneuvers during filming.
