Likely my favorite online clothing store, Mudshark Streetwear in Toronto, asked me to model one of their Kitchen Orange tops, called “Bangle”–I am just a huge fan of Kitchen Orange.

All you need do is point to your shirt. Assuming you’ve moved the button to the second box and Ms. Requestor is literate, she’ll glance down, force a polite grin of disgust and breeze off in a huff. Good work! So a few hours later you find yourself at a grungily cool loft on the outskirts of town, the … Read More
“The machines are small, the sound is gigantic, the scope is worldwide, the advance is unstoppable. Prepare your defenses.” That was the warning delivered to Chicagoans before 2 musicians armed only with Gameboys and a slew of high-energy, beat-heavy, unresistably-catchy chiptunes landed in the city. Includes pictures and links to videos and MP3s. read more | digg story
