Advanced Style

A documentary examining the lives of seven unique New Yorkers whose eclectic personal style and vital spirit have guided their approach to aging. Based on Ari Seth Cohen’s famed blog of the same name, this film paints intimate and colorful portraits of independent, stylish women aged 62 to 95 who are challenging conventional ideas about beauty, aging, and Western’s culture’s increasing obsession with youth.

Welcome to the Odd-World of ODDKA

sponsored


 
When you’re a spirit maker with a flavor range consisting of Twisted Melon, Peach Bellini, Fresh Cut Grass, Salty Caramel Popcorn, and Electricity, it’s safe to say that creativity is on your side. ODDKA’s spirits turn cups into metaphoric blank canvases for professional and amateur mixologists alike. But the brand does not limit experimentation to only drink creation. Through invention challenges, ODDKA seeks innovation from their audience. Take for example Makelight, the interactive studio seen in the video above. They used the Electricity flavor of ODDKA as a jumping point for an immersive experience where you’re able to compose your own music through the bottles. With a brand that’s open to encouraging ideas, the possibilities are endless.

This Week in Photographic Freedoms

upskirt-nature

 

To protect wilderness areas from “being exploited for commercial gain,” the U.S. Forest Service is taxing any professional nature photographer or member of the press wanting to take pictures in National Parks by making them apply for a special permit that can cost up to $1500. Those who do not wish to apply face a fine of up to $1000. Sounds like the USFS is exploiting wilderness areas for their own commercial gain.

Meanwhile in Texas… a court has upheld the right for old men to take creepy photos of kids in public with the option of being free to capture an upskirt of the child’s mother as well.

All in all, it sounds like a tricky situation for a budding professional upskirt photographer whose specialty is hikers in the Texan wilderness.

Only 36 Years Away…

space-elevator-japan-obayashi

Japanese construction giant Obayashi announced earlier this week that they will have an elevator to space constructed by 2050. Reaching almost 60,000 miles off the earth’s surface, transport time for humans and cargo up the space elevator will be roughly 7 days, which is really nothing at all in light years. According to the company, it is because of the development of carbon nanotechnology that “fantasy can now become a reality.” Bring down the mothership.

There’s Always Something Special in the Secret Sauce

noodle-den

A noodle vendor in northern China has been detained on drug charges because he was serving noodles laced with opium to his customers. When asked to explain why he had been serving such soothing soup, the vendor said he “added it to his food to make it taste better and to improve his business.” Which makes total sense and brings us to this question; if there were Noodle dens, would you visit one?
