By Rachel Oakley in New Trends on Friday 20 March 2015

There’s no doubt about it. Walter White was one smooth operator. And when he threw that pizza onto the roof out of frustration, we all cheered him on. But please, if you’re in Albuquerque and visit the filming location of that pizza throw, don’t – whatever you do – throw a pizza on the roof yourself. Breaking Bad’s creator is begging you.

By Rachel Oakley in New Photography on Friday 20 March 2015

Ex-man choices: A difficult choice that needs to be made when your ex throws herself into a river, and your new girlfriend follows. This is exactly what happened in Ningbo, in eastern China’s Zhejiang province. Words were had between 21-year-old Wu Hsia’s ex girlfriend and his new girlfriend near a river.

Rachel Oakley Contributor

By Rachel Oakley in New Music, Video on Thursday 19 March 2015

Nothing against Kanye West, but you’ve got to give autotune a rest. The fad died with T-Pain’s career. One artist who is quite welcome to use autotune as much as she wants is Maggie. Maggie the dog.

Rachel Oakley Contributor

By Rachel Oakley in New Food and Packaging on Thursday 19 March 2015

Some restaurants have become too cool for school. They serve your appetizers, entrees and desserts on slabs of concrete, wooden planks, glass tiles, and even logs (oh, they do).
