A Bike shop in Germany that has a 120 bicycles mounted to the exterior wall instead of a sign. So surreal it looks like a photochop. Pic was spotted in the NY Daily News. Thanks Brancs


Rock the Bells NY Concert Review

Tuesday, August 31st, 2010

We hit up Rock the Bells this past weekend in NY, so what’s the report? This year’s edition of the Bells was a homage to the hip hop classic albums by Snoop Dogg, Wu-Tang, Tribe Called Quest, KRS-1, Slick Rick, Rakim, & Lauryn Hill. The lineup was certainly epic so after a late night we packed up the MINI Clubman and headed out of Montreal early Saturday morning. McD’s breakfast, a Rock the Bells iPod playlist, and 6 hours later we arrived at the Big Apple and headed straight for Pier 11 for the ferry ride to Governor’s Island. The crowds were already building when we reached the gate and Rakim was already on stage running the tail end of his classic ‘Paid in Full album’ with KRS-1 up next to do ‘Criminal Minded’. Both these albums were a little before my time so even though I knew them well a much needed siesta was more in the cards to be ready for my personal highlights….

Lucien Pellat has opened a shop in Tokyo designed by Kengo Kuma.

The lighting effects cast amazing shadows throughout the store and the details are stunning. More pics after the jump…
