Artist Created A Skateboard That Has A Street Signpost As Its Deck

The jagged edges somehow accentuated the overall appearance, making me forget it had a design that I love to hate.

Watching The Marble Conveyor Belt Creating Music Is Very Hypnotizing

Not going to lie. I was coaxed to sleep a few nights ago watching Wintergatan’s newest project, the Marble Conveyor Belt, churning out music. The combination of audio produced by the marbles, and the visual of the marbles moving through this inexplicably complex musical marble sculpture is absolutely hypnotizing. I slept earlier than usual and I am not the kind who sleeps early. Just for that, Marble Conveyor Belt is definitely worthy of a mention here.

Teenager Paid $800,000 For A Bunch Of Supreme Skate Decks In An Auction

If, after reading the headline, you are asking what the hell are you doing with your life, well, you are not alone. I was asking myself the same. Why am still here furiously typing on an aging MacBook Pro on an aging Apple Wireless Keyboard and look an aging Apple Cinema Display for a paltry return instead of raising my hand in a cool ass manner to bid for something that cost hundreds of thousands. Alas, life doesn’t favor everyone like in the case of 17-year-old Carson Guo. Continue reading Teenager Paid $800,000 For A Bunch Of Supreme Skate Decks In An Auction
