Milieu
With so much music being released that's freely available on the internet, it's a little daunting to try and sift through to find the diamonds. But British blogger Alex Young is a gifted electronica aficionado that does just that. His site...

Flavorpill Sundance
Describing Flavorpill Sundance, a blog devoted to the happenings of the Sundance Film Festival in Park City, Utah, one is tempted to say it’s all over that indiefest like a cheap suit. But that would be wrong. Flavorpill isn’t a cheap...

SMITH Magazine
The hyperbolically-titled "bloggers revolution" has changed publishing. Virtually free to publish, the internet phenomenon has created digital publishing, a medium that is simultaneously wholly democratic yet often schizophrenic. Now there...

OZOcar
Yesterday we read about OZOcar over at Charles and Marie and loved the idea so we decided to give them a shot for this morning's trip to the airport (en route to Seattle). With a fleet of 30 hybrid vehicles, OZOcar is New York's first eco...

Cassette Jam 05
When was the last time you labored through making a mix tape? I think I made my last one in 1997. The cassette tape is pretty foreign these days, but still hugely nostalgic. Cassette Jam 05 is a collection of photos of over 180 different blank...

Nike iD Blogger Contest
It's hard not to see an advert for Nike's relaunched iD customization service. They're really blowing out the promotion, and with good reason-- the new version of the site is fast, simple, elegant and fun (rock on RGA!). Then, of course...

Joris Laarman
Though his work made the rounds on design blogs last year, we somehow missed it until now. Joris Laarman is a young Dutch designer with a great sense of style. We like it when designers challenge convention, as Joris has done with his designs for...
