A return to form of sorts for MGMT. Great song, great video. Benjamin Goldwasser and Andrew VanWyngarden are keeping it experimental on their self-titled 3rd album, and they certainly seem content on keeping their mega-hit Kids days in the rearview. Sure we’d all like to hear another “Time To Pretend”, but as long as they [...]


When I was in high school my friend’s dad worked for a record company and we saw some great concerts, all while I imagine he was smoking joints backstage with the bands and perhaps fondling some groupies. While I’m jealous of that, it did enable me to get great seats and a ride to some [...]

'Luohkka' headstones by Johan Kauppi

Swedish designer Johan Kauppi creates these fascinating headstone designs named Luohkka, which apparently means “small mountain with trees” in Sami. The concept is that a small cut circular space, not unlike a flowerpot, can be used for planting seeds in the soil beneath. The design really emphasizes the idea of life and remembrance a loved [...]

Plant is made up of 169 artificial robotic leaves [...]

It can function as a planter, a place to grow spices and/or herbs, and can carry your various fruits (unless I’ve [...]

Boskke SKY Planter is turning things upside down

I know what you’re thinking, and no, I didn’t screw up the picture on this article. We are officially technologically advanced enough to plant upside down. Why? Why not? The award winning design from Patrick Morris is turning heads in design and architecture, transforming what was destined to be at ground level forever to reaching [...]

High-tech meets hardcore...

Anytime I see something that’s just in my price range, I try to imagine life with that object. If it sounds like a completely bad idea, I’ll run with it. I’ve got worse money handling skills than a Wall Street investment banker, which makes me a great consumer. Now, take the Desktop V-Twin Engine for [...]
