what amazing music! Nowadays we call duets pitbull and j.lo, justin bieber and usher. THIS is a real duet. No machines, no voice calibrations. HOT RAW MUSIC.
As a kid I literally grew up on every kung fu movie there was to see. Every family gathering, although for some meant caroling or family football games, meant for us dinner and a gathering around the TV for a classic kung fu movie. (And i swear its not your jackie chan or jet li stuff. Its the Bruce Lee, Wong Fei Hung, the ten tigers of Canton etc. The REAL kung fu movies) Check out these photos of Shaolin Monks that i came across. They are truly amazing and truly inspiring. There was this one time when I was in Shanghai I met this man who told me that he just came from training for 3 years in the mountains of Tibet. He told me that every morning he would wake up at 3 am, fetch water, train, and meditate for 10+ hours at a time. Ive never met a man so well collected, passionate, and undisturbed by the faults of the world. amazing people and amazing stories.

from my last post one can see truly the magnificence of the human body- where intimacy and language are cultivated through the touch of this great system we hold to be our temples. But what makes these images beautiful from one perspective is the perception of bodies and its inherent beauty to which we are conditioned to understand beautiful bodies are young and lean. In this post, I would like to oppose the beauty of bodies in its culturally ‘perfect’ state and show forth the beauty of the heavy, old, and ‘flawed’ (and of course the effects of cultural bodily perfections). ‘Perfection’ of the body to me is more disturbing than the imperfection. Imperfections are honest in nature and tells stories of life that one can only see through the creases of the face. Perfection is deceitful, pretentious, and pressures mental and physical harm – conditioning us to the impossible perfection of the naturally flawed human being. take a look at a few of these pictures and imagine the stories that could be told from the ‘oddness’ & ‘imperfections’

Ignorant assholes. Way to squash all things creative and interesting. EVERYTHING you see and touch is designed. NBC, if you must drive our youth into becoming business mongrels and emphasize that uselessness of art and design, I really suggest you think differently and think of the bleak world that is without beauty and creativity.
Our world is so underappreciated for what we do
Check out these sexy thangs. I think benz is toning down the design but still pretty nice. I’m a sucker for the matte

Infographics and mapping is an extremely powerful tool. By observing the sheer red one can realize through graphics the power of nuclear arms. Check it out
It was called the Tsar Bomba, but the Russians nicknamed it the Kuz’kina Mat–or what roughly translates to the “We’ll Show You.” This 50,000-kiloton hydrogen bomb was the largest detonated nuke ever, and it’s considered the most powerful man-made creation in history.
Heck, it was immensely powerful on the galactic scale. If you built a bomb of the same size and shape from the material in the sun’s core, it would take 10 million years to generate the same amount of energy.
The human mind simply can’t fathom the numbers, but this extra-long infographic by Maximilian Bode , a former art director at The New Yorker, begins to put the Tsar Bomba into perspective, at least in terms of other nukes. It gives you, even just sitting at your desk, a sense of the horrifying scale of the bombs we’ve made. Working your way from the top, you can see how tiny Little Boy and Fat Man were–the devastating nukes that the US dropped on Japan during WWII. If you’ve ever seen media of the aftermath, you might be able to grasp some of the mass horror of those weapons. But they were tiny in comparison to Tsar Bomba. Tsar Bomba was 1,400 times more powerful than Little Boy and Fat Man, combined.
see you soon
