This past June we highlighted the work of Filfury’s Nike Air Max Handguns — a cheeky yet subversive riff on hot button issues such as gun control and sweatshop conditions. Now the Sydney artist is back with another collection of sneaker-based art — this time eschewing weapons for another streetwear staple: skulls. Who doesn’t love [...]


Hot Toys makes some of the most hyper-realistic “toys” out there, to the point that they make the nerd in me want to hide under my comforter, make a pillow fort and get in an all-out WWIII-style deathmatch with my vintage Robotech figures (I totally give the edge to Rick Hunter).

Sure it gave the world Chloë Sevigny and Rosario Dawson (for which we’re grateful), but the duo behind Kids — director Larry Clark [...]


We’ve taken a video tour of John Lautner’s Sheats Goldstein Residence before, one of Los Angeles most famous and iconic architectural gems, but I think Wildfox Swimwear’s 2013 campaign makes a much more powerful aesthetic argument as to why it’s so special. Shot by erstwhile party photographer Mark “The Cobrasnake” Hunter, the campaign keeps it [...]

Celebrating the 100th anniversary of Browning’s model 1911

No, this isn’t a vestigial prop from some bad Underworld sequel, it’s a real functional double-barred .45 caliber pistol from Italian firearms maker Arsenal Firearms. Invented to celebrate the 100th anniversary of John Moses Browning’s seminal model 1911 pistol, this deranged handgun is exactly what you’re looking for when a single bullet isn’t enough to [...]
