I never got into Drake when he first hit the scene. Chalk it up to my total disdain for anything related to Degrassi and lyrics that were easy to ridicule (What am I doing?/What am I doing?/ Oh ya, that’s right/ I’m doing me). But with his cheerleading for The Weeknd, one of the best […]
There are apparently still unexplored frontiers in the mobile food movement. Benjamin Harrison is trying to fund a bitter-infused seltzer drinks cart, which would be serving up drinks in the ‘burg. Since you guys liked his last kickstarter so much, maybe a local source out on the streets would take it to the next level. […]
Online eyewear darling Warby Parker are known for their Tom-like approach to commerce (you buy a pair, they give a pair) and styles that appeal to the hip but sight-challenged among us. But buying glasses online, even at the excellent price point of $95 dollars, is a drag. Bird is fixing to remedying that with […]

HBO, in a moment of scheduling brilliance, passes the torch from Game of Thrones seamlessly to season four of True Blood this Sunday. In honor of some non-sparkling, all-for-premarital-sex vampires, Goddamn Cobras made a mixtape. And a gif. Anyone know if Odyssea or Sweet Ups are holding viewing parties again? True Blood Mixtape 01: Sookie […]
Since the G can only get you so far this weekend and the L might be more trouble than its worth, staying in the neighborhood might be the way to go. There is alot going on, after all. Here are a few more, just in case. Goddamn Cobras’ literature project BOOMSLANG is hosting The 3rd […]

Project Aura: Bicycle Safety Lighting System from Project AURA on Vimeo. Imagine how lit up the W-burg bridge would look at night if bikers were rocking this.
