The leaves have grown thick
atop the monuments
erected in memory
of horrible men
who amassed by horrible means
all of the wealth needed
to cement their legacies
Lindsay has an incredible emotional and physical presence on screen that holds an existential vulnerability, while harnessing the power of the transcendental—the moment in transition. She is able to connect with us past all of our memory and projection, expressing our own inner eminence. -Richard Phillips

A couple weeks ago I took part in a little staycation at the Mondrian Soho. Why? Because sometimes you just need a break from normality while still being able to go about your daily life. The room I had I can only phrase as a sky palace, as the ceiling did indeed match the sky, while everything else in the room was saturated with light and white. The hotel itself is a fantasy, with it’s designer Benjamin Noriega Ortiz taking cues from Jean Cocteau’s La Belle et la Bête. Along with a top notch restaurant in Imperial No. 9, that is perfect for every meal and a seductive club, Mister H, that finds itself full of models and various forms of celebrities until the lighter parts of the night, the Mondrian SOHO is your complete vacation package.

If you can afford it ($399), this audio dock from Audyssey is the only audio dock that you should consider purchasing. Delivering some serious sound, it does everything you would ever need it to do, plus you can use it wirelessly with nothing actually docked in it. When it is docked, you can make phone calls from your bed or couch without really doing too much. The dock can also hook up to desktop, which means you can get some exceptional sound from whatever video or movie you’re watching. All of this and more, packaged in a good looking piece of technology.
