OK let's get closer..

and closer..

End of September's Tunes

Wilson Pickett, A major figure in the development of American soul music, Pickett recorded over 50 songs which made the US R&B charts, and frequently crossed over to the US Billboard Hot 100. Among his best known hits are "In the Midnight Hour" (which he co-wrote), "Land of 1,000 Dances", "Mustang Sally", and "Funky Broadway".

The impact of Pickett's songwriting and recording led to his 1991 induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.

The Shangri-Las were an American pop girl group of the 1960s.
Between 1964 and 1966 they charted with often heartbreaking teen melodramas, and remain known for "Leader of the Pack" and "Remember (Walkin' in the Sand)".

Making of an Eames Chair

Rewrite the meaning & gist of 'design' word. It's a f***ing piece of a far-fetched art, after all.

New Designers

Exhibitors at the London graduate show talk about their views on green design, and shed some light on their own inventions/products.

I just wondered, they're so smart. A big fucking smart plan. I mean, like wasting material in past modern to post modern era, cracking nature to creating new forms..and now moved over to so called green design and pushing non G8 countries to stop bullying the nature, eh?  Screw that.

I’m a big  not a really big advocate of less is more, and i like the way these young designers are thinking.  But yes, it’s really inspiring.  So I recommend watching it below and heading over to view the article.
