We’re all car buffs at Lost At E Minor, not that any of us are able to drive anything too flash. But, dammit, if we could, I reckon we’d all be down with the new Lexus NX, which is not only beautifully designed, but also comes with its own digital art exhibition called NX-Perspectives. The impetus of the exhibition is to challenge some of the world’s most innovative artists in fashion, design, and music to ‘create a unique piece of performance art, drawing inspiration from the bold design of the new Lexus NX’.
Imagine playing your country’s national anthem with rifle shots on metal plates? That certainly sounds patriotic. Granted, the anthem may come in dribs and drabs, with pauses in between as you reload that rifle but one can’t deny it’s a rather unusual and memorable rendition. And no one gets hurt!

While creativity usually means you have brilliant ideas and act on them, it’s more than just that. Creativity is the ability to take on adventure and see things from perspectives other than your own.

It boggles the mind how artist Carol Milne was able to manipulate glass to look like row upon row of intertwined yarn. You see, the melting point of glass is between 1,400-1,600 degrees Fahrenheit, so how was she able to knit the fragile – not to mention very hot – material into intricate artworks?
Guys, remember when we showed you the video game where you could play as a wild goat? That was pretty awesome and weird. Well, now you can play a video game as a slice of bread.

If you really can’t afford to spend 8+ hours watching all of Peter Jackson’s Hobbit films, you can just buy the books and take your time reading through them… or you can watch 72 seconds of The Hobbit and be caught up with the entire story. Kinda.
You don’t HAVE to be a thrill-seeker to explore the beautiful limestone caves of Fiji (but it helps)
Caves are a part of the unknown world, the untouched. Like the dark side of the moon, many don’t get to experience the world’s deepest dwellings of geography. But it is actually possible for anyone. Immersed in living geology, cave floors and roofs are full of fascinating structures, like stalagmites and stalactites formed by millions of years of water drips. In Fiji, limestone caves have been a part of civilization dating back 4,000 years ago. [More magical Fiji here]
Instead of settling for a doorbell with that irritating chime sound, you should definitely switch it up and order a Guitar Doorbell! It’s just what it sounds like-a guitar mounted over the doorway with a plectrum striker attached to the swinging door.
