Mario Tama gets Above it All

By: PeteChicago


Photographer Mario Tama shoots NYC from above—ranging from cool overhead shots to some insane plane flyovers like the one above. When you can see the seams and rivets from underneath as you’re speeding on the LIE, you know they are damn low.

Another insane one after the jump.

Thom Yorke’s LA weekend at the EchoPlex


We told you about Thom Yorke’s new supergroup last week, and if you were fortunate enough to be in LA this weekend (and had the cash) to see the shows, lucky you. For those of us who were not privy to the excitement, NME has a play-by-play and setlist up from the first night. After the jump, we have put together a bunch of bootleg videos of the performance.

Stiletto Stoners. Professional women smoking weed, featured on NBC’s Today Show. I love the decorated papers, very stylish. The piece is a great argument about legalization.

small, tiny, and cool: The Aston Martin Cygnet


Back in July, Aston Martin made news for it’s concept car Cygnet. Based around Toyota’s iQ, this little guy is set to go on sale in Europe next year. It does not support the power of the V8 or V12 the AM’s are known for, so think of it more as your zip around the corner car. The one you pick girls up in and do not totally feel like a tool. At first, the production will be limited, as well as your ability to purchase it (one must own an Aston, to be granted the right). The Cygnet will also feature bespoke interiors, could you expect anything less?

The art of Window Shopping

Julia Chesky is passionate about department store windows.  So much so, that she combined a borderline obsession with her background in photography.  The result? Really fresh, beautiful photographs that are deep on may levels.  Have a look at a sampling above, and be sure to check out her own blog, Modelizing.
