A Skateboarding Spectacle

beiber-bails-skateboarding

Bieber bails on the steps in front of Madison Square Garden. Clothed in a skintight dress and leather leggings, the pop singer managed to finally land his step-rolls after multiple attempts under the close watch of his bodyguard. The whole event—which was caught on video—is akin to something like watching a person who doesn’t know how to throw a ball repeatedly toss hail marys.

The Aether Cone

aether-cone

Striking in design, simple in use, optimal in sound. After spending many hours with the Aether Cone, these are the qualities that best describe this new wireless music player for your home.

Let’s face it, in an age of accessibility, music selection has become surprisingly more difficult. Think about how many times you have ended up playing the same set of tracks simply because you couldn’t be bothered sorting through your endless music library. By learning your musical tastes through experience and play, the Aether Cone lives up to its billing as a “Thinking Music Player.” Using voice command, simply touch the center button and tell the cone what you want to hear, and in an instant the music player comes to life. Using the extensive catalog at RDIO, no further thinking on your part is required. A recent voice request for “De La Soul” took us on a three-hour journey through the catalog of Native Tongues and other highlights from hip-hop’s golden era. Like your little audio assistant, the Aether Cone allows you to get on with your day.

Alaska’s Party Animal

Remembering Buzzwinkle, the drunkest moose in Anchorage.

“the massive bull was standing rigid, knees locked, with his wide-set eyes fixed in an inscrutable expression. A long strand of small white lights tangled in his antlers attested to some careless twig noshing in Town Square earlier in the day. The most obvious sign of life was the cloud of vapor venting from his nostrils with every deep exhalation. He was blotto, and he knew it.”

It’s with this in mind that L.A. Taco presents a unique look at Los Angeles through interviews with people waiting to get their delicious food.
