If you were thinking that Sufjan Steven’s couldn’t evolve and expand his musical styling’s any more, you were wrong. Grabbing our attention with his beautifully simple folk chord progressions and lusciously mellow vocals before turning into an arrangement junkie with an electronic vibe, Stevens has just dropped a rap mixtape. Rap. Rap!!!
Just in time for Christmas, Juicy Couture have released a super sleek limited edition of their Viva la Juicy parfum. The Limited Edition bottle has a platinum finish, and is distressed to vintage perfection with a three-step proprietary metallisation process, all packaged in a luxurious textured carton. With a mix of mandarin orange, wild berries, honeysuckle, gardenia and creamy amber notes, Viva la Juicy is the perfect combination of fun and flirty.
HOW TO WIN: We’ve got a bottle to give away to our favourite Australia-based entrant who tell us below this post:What scent reminds you the most of Christmas?
Some of us are allergic to Christmas cheers. Alan Sailor has the perfect thing for these people: the fantastic sight of seeing Christmas ornaments get shot to smithereens by a pellet rifle. He doesn’t use any extra-spiffy equipment too, just a micro-second guided spark flash. For our part, we don’t hate Christmas, we just love explosions and colours.
It’s not the first time we’ve admired Calligraphuck’s letterpress cards. But these rude Christmas cards that celebrate swearing, elegant calligraphic typography and blurt out all sorts of glorious well wishes from ‘Happy Yuletide, Bitches‘ to ‘Glad Tidings Motherfucker’ — they’re really quite something, aren’t they?
Ahhh, it’s that time of year again…and the ugly Christmas sweaters are getting more hideous than ever before. Festive memories are a guarantee in one of these sweaters, and all eyes will be on you at any holiday party. My favorite by far has to be the one with the intentionally-placed snowman heads…
Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg’s list of Hanukkah Wants was leaked and mygivee.com has created his wishlist for his close friends. Impressive to see the broad spectrum of desires of a reclusive entrepreneur. Mark asked for ‘Livestock restraints and slaughtering knife’. He wants a Gulfstream Jet and private island. He wants to jazz up his look with pull-overs, makeover his desk with a calendar, and drink some plonk.
Couture, extravagant, bucolic. Les buches de Noel are all dressed up for the holidays. They were made by French chefs, master bakers, confectioners of large, fine chocolate and gourmet French stores such as Fauchon, Dalloyau, Lenotre, Patrick Roger and many more. To celebrate Christmas and New Year, an exhibit of twenty Yule logs are currently on display at the castle of Breteuil in France.
Most of us would agree that the Christmas holiday is a lot more magical and fun when you’re a child. Everyone keeps good memories of that time in childhood, like the moment you meet Santa for the first time. Right? Well, not the kids we see at Sketchy Santas, a website that shows pictures of really creepy Santas.
It’s a fight: Mr Bacon vs Mr Tofu. Who will remain at the top of the foodchain? If you’re a toy freak, this will go nicely on the desk alongside your Berbrick, Kaws and Macbook Pro. Yup, it’s never too early to start planning Christmas gifts.
