It's a great song and very appropriate vibe. How long before PETA translates it?

 

Maybe I'm naive but my guess is that there were a few conversations about the track. Altman had to change Prêt-à-Porter to Ready to Wear for the US release.

Tokyo-based and world-renowned architect Kengo Kuma has designed a Starbucks store in Japan that draws on its peaceful surroundings and its proximity to a holy shrine.

The store is located in Fukuoka Perfecture, on the street leading straight to a shrine called Dazaifu Tenmagu, dedicated to a Japanese deity.

The shop’s design is, according to Kuma the “fusion of traditional and contemporary and is made up of natural materials both traditional and modern”. The design of the interior is meant to resemble the natural surroundings of the Shinto shrine and its parks which Kuma hoped would be seen as respecting the sanctity of the grounds.

Starting from the back of the shop, small square wooden blocks were suspended and connected to form a 3D pattern that moves forward through the space like tree branches, reaching up to the wall and ceiling—to give the idea that the store is nestling a tree. The design, which carries the influence of traditional Japanese carpentry, is unlike the manufactured interior style typically seen in Starbucks stores.

Despite this, the company’s brand identity still shines through, if not more.

He narrates the Hyundai ads. An interesting, but very effective choice for a foreign brand like this working in the US.

Chinese artist Lu Yang combined dead frogs, dancing and music for her latest project. 

In 'Revived Zombie Frogs Underwater Ballet,' Lu reanimated dead frogs with a Midi controller to make the frogs ‘dance’ for her music video. She re-used dead frog bodies that were used in a medical dissection experiment. 

"Because of my strong affinity with control—the control of people and animals—I have been creating my works by using technology and various media,” Lu wrote about her work. 

"Such a control totally relies on the cerebration of human and they cannot escape from the physiological reality. Yet they use their bodies to create devices so they can break away from these limitations while they are being controlled by their physical form or illness.”

To celebrate the 20th anniversary of the text message, Moleskine has created its own SMS called, The Moleskine Shooting Message System. 

It works much like the fun and old-school way of sending paper plane messages across the classroom. 

Designed by the Italian Pietro Corraini, the set features a classic Moleskine notebook with a graduated cover that shows how far you can shoot a message using the notebook band as a makeshift slingshot.
