Food and design: Two of my favorite things combined into one

This stop motion video from Lait Noir killed me the first time I saw it. It puts together my most favorite things (food and design) and it’s one of the best videos I’ve seen in the past month (next to that “I’m On A Horse” Old Spice commercial). Thanks to my friend, Rowena, for sharing this! (via BuzzFeed)

De La Soul is the magic number

To celebrate their 20th anniversary, hip-hop pioneers De La Soul teamed up with Kidrobot to create this limited edition set of 3-inch figures. Each set comes in futuristic space travel boxes, symbolizing De La’s mission to take hip-hop to the stratosphere and beyond. This is going to look badass next to my Run DMC set. Retailing for $50, the De La Soul 3-Pack arrives at Kidrobot stores,, and select retailers on March 18. [via high snobiety]

Because you can never have enough drool-worthy websites to look at

If Svpply’s aim is to make me want things that I don’t need then it has succeeded. It’s a collection of really awesome I-need-this-in-my-life kind of stuff from all over the place and it’s my new favorite website.


Can you guess who this is?

Photographer Terry Richardson is killin’ it with these pics. Hair gel, fake abs and the boys of Jersey Shore. Way too funny. Click the hair for more.

Arj Barker wants you to LYAO

You probably recognize him as Jemaine and Bret’s buddy in Flight of the Conchords. But in case you didn’t know, Arj Barker has a solid stand-up routine. The dude also happens to have released a new DVD called LYAO, and we’ve hooked it up with Warner Music Group to provide three (3) giveaway copies for our readers. It’s definitely a good laugh and what I appreciate is how he works a theme of positivity into his observational comedy. Other highlights for me are Arj commenting on texting, the condescending nature of new parents, and talking to a bottle of water. If you want to score a copy, just tell us something funny in the comments. We’ll announce the winners live a week from today when our radio show Keep It Like A Secret resumes. Today’s show has been postponed due to Dave’s last minute trip deep into the heart of the Amazon to inspire native tribes.
