Shintaro Kago’s Flying Lotus illustrations

I’ve been drooling over the Japanese guro-manga artist’s tarot card-like depictions of magnificently gruesome deaths for each track of FlyLo’s upcoming album, You’re Dead.


Hot Chicken Takeover

I had my first experience on Sunday, and I'm craving it again already. Worth the hype. Worth the line.


"My Song 5 (remix)" music video

Haim's videos are always fun and quirky. The video for "My Song 5" featuring A$AP Ferg is no exception. Who doesn't love a daytime talk show? Bonus: Kesha is in it!

Buzzfeed food videos

When they make their staff try weird foreign food, it always makes me laugh and cringe, and I am so glad we don't have to do it. 


Richard Linklater’s “Boyhood”

Every bit as good as advertised.



Mark Twain may have said, “Golf is a good walk spoiled,” but I bet he would’ve enjoyed putt-putt.


Drunk text messages from my low-life pals

From midnight to 3 a.m., every text I receive is about booze, babes or Satan.


Adobe Ink & Slide

This pressure sensitive stylus lets me sketch on my iPad like I would paper. And Slide is a lovely little companion device that lets me draw straight lines, circles, squares and more at the touch of a button.
