Bat for Lashes – “Pearl’s Dream”

I love, love, love Bat for Lashes new album, Two Suns, and (only member) Natasha Khan may or may not have replaced Jenny Lewis as the queen of my cold and jaded indie hipster heart. Here’s her new video for the song “Pearl’s Dream.”  I admittedly don’t, uh, get the video (it’s like if Bjork […]

B-BOT

Check out the ultra cool B-BOT app for iPhone/iPod Touch developed by Tristan Eaton. The app let’s you create your own customizable avatars with 400 different items to choose from.

Be Cool

Let’s rap about fire safety! This is what happens when advertisers try too hard to capture a culture they know nothing about. But, on the flip side, it does provide an entertaining laughable video for your viewing pleasure. Lean Wit It, Rock Wit, kids. Smoke rises.

My Radio

Karl Who?

I have said it before and I will say it again… Humility goes a long way. *Well played Karl. If Chanel isn’t already in talks to produce this bag, they should be. *I normally don’t condone the use of the murse, man-bag, man purse, etc. but Karl gets a pass on this one. Source (for […]

Harem Pants?

I don’t care what anyone says, I want a pair of these in every color. Harem pants are cute, comfy and seriously fashionable. See for yourself. Though I do advise you to steer clear of the more MC Hammer-esque Harem pants. Please.
