FAKE TALES OF AMERICA

This project is pretty clever. Shot and compiled by photographer Mathieu Lambert, Fake Tales of America documents a fictional trip across America, picture by picture. Each of the pictures, however, was shot somewhere in France. In reality, Lambert explains, he’s never been out of the country, so instead he tried to capture “scenes within France […]

Don’t you wonder what it’s like in other places? America’s so calm and tranquil compared to so many other places in the world. I came across this video the other day of a train station in Yangon, Myanmar. Just a reminder of how different things can be. Dude looks like he’s juiced to be running […]

A SATURDAY AT THE GETTY

Perhaps it’s the tranquility that hits you first. I suppose that’s the vibe of most museums, although I’ve never been to a museum quite like The Getty Center. Built in the memory of oil tycoon Jean Paul Getty, the 24 acre cultural center has welcomed over a million visitors a year since its opening in […]

And then it hits. The Tipping Point. We’ve spoken about it before. And quite frankly I think our friend Tyler’s just gone over the edge. Honestly, I’m half shocked, half inspired by Odd Future’s ascension. I can’t say I saw it coming, but now looking back it all makes sense. Despite the darkness of the […]

THE WORLD & WORLDSTAR

Written By Jesse Byrd Jr. A part of me always feels a little grimy when I check into World Star Hip-Hop. Elderly public transportation skirmishes, scantily clad middle school teachers, and a sea of suspect ass music videos. I feel as though I’m looking to be entertained by everything that is wrong with the world. […]

The world is changing fast. I wonder if Zuckerberg even could have fathomed a world where social networking factored into the overthrow of an authoritarian dictatorship that had ruled with iron fist for almost a quarter century. If you’ve been keeping an eye on the news lately, you’ll notice that the tides are turning in […]

Every so often an email arrives in my inbox that is so heartfelt it’s impossible to ignore. They’re special moments, because it all happens so smoothly. Almost like it was meant to be. With the goal to celebrate the role of creative black men in society, Jaimie Milner’s portraits celebrate men young and old who […]

To call this a romantic getaway might be a gross understatement. Although I’m a little conflicted when it comes to luxury resorts in impoverished countries, I can’t deny how dope it’d be to go here.
