TERRY AND SASHA (NSFW)

Back in 2007 Terry Richardson shot the infamous Sasha Grey for Penthouse Magazine. I think it's ironic how similar it looks to her more recent American Apparel Ads. View more from the shoot

CAST OF VICES




I came to recognize this brand a while back for their Bic pen cap silver pendant. Since I wear a pill capsule necklace myself, i was happy to see some of their other drug references. These necklaces are humorous and very hip. Drugs, Sex, Rock and Roll. /LINK

LOVE LIKE A SUNSET, MOVIE?

"A certain sentence from an interview with Phoenix published in the New York Times last week has gotten music and film sites buzzing the past couple days: “Among the band’s next projects,"the Times" Melena Ryzik wrote, “is a movie directed by Sofia Coppola, Mr. Mars’s girlfriend, based on its song "Love Like a Sunset."

We knew that front man Thomas Mars will be contributing music to Coppola’s next feature film, Somewhere, but this report of an entire film based around one of his band’s songs is news to me.

Ryzik left the details out of course, leaving us with a host of unanswered questions, namely: Will it be a feature-length film? The two-part song, which sits about halfway through Wolfgang Amadeus Phoenix, is almost entirely instrumental and only seven minutes long, so it seems unlikely that it could inspire anything of feature length. My guess: Coppola will direct an epic music video to cap off the band’s whirlwind promo tour for their breakthrough record." /VIA

CHOP CHOP

This handy kitchen item both looks wonderful and is a great space saver. the magnetic leather holds approximately 8 knives and stores a cutting board. As Notcot points out, any scratches to the leather surface only add to the worn in look this will achieve throughout time. /LINK

THIS TOO SHALL PASS



While I am not a huge fan of Ok Go's music, this video grabbed my attention (as it has another
5,704,978 Youtube viewers). I also learned that a local L.A. based collective Mindshare had something to do with this. As i watched the video all i can think is, "please don't mess up" I'd hate to see them have to start over.

PROJECT NO.8

Project No.8 is a retail store that is found at the Ace Hotel in New York's midtown. I have not yet had a chance to see it myself, but i know how wonderful the Ace is, and since Opening Ceremony also opened inside the hotel i can only assume No.8 is legit. If any of you New Yorkers have been, please fill me in. In the meantime check out what merch they have available online. /LINK
