Solar is a beautifully-designed weather app that was released for iOS yesterday. This app features a few simple, but useful ways to see the 24-hour and 3-day forecasts. It’s a stylish way to make sure you don’t get caught in the rain unprepared.
It’s not often you arrive somewhere for a lazy breakfast on a Saturday morning, to find a DJ pumping out tunes, a clown and a fairy doing wacky things with balloons, Italian cheese makers kneading mozzarella, chickens pecking about their coop, and row after row of impressive veggie patches. It’s a complex and seemingly chaotic package, but somehow, it all melds together, in a civilized, serene and incredibly cool oasis that’s attracting Sydney’s foodies in droves. Set in an old pie factory in the industrial suburb of Alexandria, The Grounds is almost more of a concept than a café or restaurant – a vast, gastronomic playground.
Minced meat and bacon and salami, oh my! If butchery makes you swoon and carnivore is your middle name, then say it loud and proud with this latest collection of tees from Japanese artist Yuko Sekine. You can snag your own cross-sectioned smoked ham t-shirt here. Dodging vegetarians, however, is up to you.
If you can’t bare the lines but crave a creative pint to dig your spoon into, then LA Creamery Artisan Ice Cream may be more your style. Delivered to your doorstep, this all-natural, organic ice cream collection has decidedly more adult overtones. Just check out their line of boozy ice creams in flavors like Chimay, Moonshine + Caramel Corn, Absinthe, and Tennessee Whisky.
The Pig & The Lady in Honolulu is one stop that epitomizes the marriage of gastronomic traditions and contemporary flavors. Or so they say. To be fair, I’ve never been but the buzz about this place is hard to ignore. Conceived and led by Andrew Le and Martha Cheng, both Hawaiian-based chefs with a ton of street cred, The Pig & The Lady is a pop-up restaurant with an ever-changing menu, currently in residence during off-hours at Hank’s Haute Dogs.
Scrap the bacon alarm clock, forget about Apple products, Penicillin, and the Vizini. This invention leaves them all for dead. Yup, the Guitar Pee urinal is designed to create beautiful music: simply pee into the urinal and the sensor mounted strings produce different notes which then resonate through wall mounted speakers. Oh, and you can even download a, wait for it, MPEE3 of your efforts. And we all know how sweet that bathroom echo is. You’ll have to go to São Paolo to experience it. It’s the work of Brazilian agency, AlmapBBDO.
Dinner at Salt and Fat may not necessarily be part of anyone’s diet plan, but oh my! It is dangerous and delicious. One starts with an amuse-bouche of popcorn flavored with bacon fat, and continues through a variety of tweaked classics of American, Asian, and contemporary fusion cuisine. Korean BBQ pulled pork sliders and the […]
Crochet queen Twinkie Chan has been making her quirky food-themed scarves and accessories since 2005. Her delicious range includes cheeseburger mitts, candy stick wrist warmers and a pepperoni pizza brooch, though my personal favourite has to be her bonkers bacon and egg scarf.
There can be no doubt that Pinterest is a wicked social media platform, two million users will attest to that. But there can also be no denying that is almost cringeworthingly girly: there are more wedding dresses, hairstyles and baked good recipes on there than there are Bieber fans on Twitter. So what is a […]
I came across Gabriel Neale’s paintings on the Internet whilst researching references for new paintings. I instantly loved the dark and strange figures in his paintings and the way he uses colour. His paintings feel like a mix between the loneliness of an Edward Hopper painting, with the darkness of Francis Bacon and Jenny Saville.
Last week brought us the Wake N’ Bacon, and now we’re being spoilt with even more convenience: the desktop microwave oven. It’s the ultimate time-saver and workspace companion. Designed by Steve Gates, this appliance is built to suit a specific line of heat and eat meals that come pre-packaged with RFID tags. It’s fully operational […]
We made our first proper music video a few weeks ago. It is for a song from our new EP called Overjoyed and I had a great time helping out on set. I made a lot of tea and bacon sandwiches and helped charge camera batteries. Very exciting stuff. Our EP is called Laura Palmer, […]
Sir Francis Bacon once said: ‘There is no excellent beauty that hath not some strangeness in the proportion’, and the work of Spanish street artist Aryz seems to embody this quote perfectly. His paintings and murals are stunningly ethereal, accessible, and beautiful, but also tinged heavily with a dark and unsettling surrealism.
These surreal new cupcake-concoctions from the laboratory of cake artisans Arthur and Aleksandra have us licking our lips, and hammering our credit cards, all at the same time. They’re almost too tasty, too stylish to eat. Almost!
