A time lapse of my 30+ hour train ride from Olympia to LA back in August.


We love seeing how things are made.

Kokeshi Dolls originated in North-East Japan as wooden toys for children. They began being produced towards the end of the Edo period (1603~1868) by woodwork artisans, called Kiji-shi, who normally made bowls, trays and other tableware by using a lathe. They began to make small dolls in the winter to sell to visitors who came to bathe in the many hot springs near their villages, which was believed to be a cure for the demands of a strenuous agricultural lifestyle.

Thanks, @sunnyside_up82.

I wasn’t sure that these “daytime fireworks” were compelling (ie. different than any other explosion) until I saw the rainbow around the 50 second mark. Wow. 

At the Arab Museum of Modern Art in Doha, Qatar this week, Chinese artist Cai Guo-Qiang put on his largest “explosion event” of the last three years, utilizing microchip-controlled explosives to form incredible designs and patterns. The video we’ve embedded of the event is an impressive testament to how a volatile black powder explosion can be controlled and shaped by computer.

Each set of explosions was calculated to paint a different picture. One series of explosions created black smoke clouds that looked like “drops of ink splattered across the sky.”

The trailer for Meet the Fokkens, a documentary on twin sisters who have been prostitutes in Amsterdam for over 40 years, is fantastically charming, honest!

The most INTENSE tae-kwon-do fight ever.

Political Ad of the Day: Rick Perry knows there’s something wrong in this country “when gays can serve openly in the military but our kids can’t openly celebrate Christmas or pray in school.”

I know there’s something wrong in this country when gays can’t get married, but small-minded, intolerant, homophobic fear-mongers like Rick Perry can be considered viable presidential candidates.

Lenny Kravitz is Angry from Lenny Kravitz

Even a nice guy like Lenny Kravitz gets angry sometimes. Here’s why.


Kim Bap by Matthew Koshmrl is an amazing run through the traditional Korean food. From rice cultivation to production to consumption. In many ways, I wish that “How It’s Made” was show exactly like this.

What? Actual real life Mario Kart?
