 I LOVE BOSTON DYNAMICS ROBOT VIDEOS, and usually, being busy with robot-making, they don’t release new ones on their YouTube channel very often. This past week, however, we’ve been lucky enough to get two videos from the creators of the most hilarious and disturbingly lifelike robots I’ve ever seen. Check out the video above to see a very impressive robot backflip (plus a very amusing not-quite backflip)....
Starbucks Releases Pink Cold Cups, But Everyone is Calling Them “Rose Gold” For Some Reason

Starbucks Releases Pink Cold Cups, But Everyone is Calling Them “Rose Gold” For Some Reason

 
15% OFF $99+ CODE: AFF15
 IMAGE FROM STARBUCKS   THE INTERNET IS GOING CRAZY for these “Rose Gold” Starbucks cups, or as Starbucks officially calls them: Pink Cold Cups. We see here, again, that Starbucks has fully embraced their ultra-Instagrammable strategy that worked so well with the Unicorn Frappuccino, and I like it. The painted pink one is my favorite, but I appreciate all the flashy cups Starbucks releases, and the way they did the sequin one is really cool. If you want to pick one of these up, do...

Photo of the Day: “Lines Of Color” by Carl Larson

  PHOTO BY CARL LARSON, FLICKR   THIS PHOTO, BY CARL LARSON, LOOKS LIKE SOMETHING DONE IN PHOTOSHOP, but it’s actually much more interesting than that. If you look closely at the right side of the photo, the stripes of color are actually three-dimensional tubes, and that they’re not all the same distance from the camera. The right side of the photo is the Le Moretti installation at La Defense, Paris. It’s a huge building-sized cylinder with tubes of different thicknesses and...

Photo of the Day: “Sun_001” time-lapse by Sean Doran

PHOTO BY SEAN DORAN, FLICKR   THIS SERIES OF PHOTOS SEQUENCED INTO A VIDEO, BY SEAN DORAN, AND WAS TOO COOL NOT TO POST. This is a wonderfully composed and tracked time-lapse of our sun which took Sean around to week to photograph. Containing beautifully intense reds and yellows, along with a great level of detail, this does a great job of showing the dynamic, super-powerful nature of the giant burning ball in space.   Click here to see our other Photos of the...

Photo of the Day: “Prismatic” by Ulrich Neitzel

 PHOTO BY ULRICH NEITZEL, FLICKR   I LOVE PATTERNS, SO THIS PHOTO, BY ULRICH NEITZEL, IS REALLY APPEALING TO ME. A great example of how static man-made objects can produce beautiful photography from the right photographer. I really love the perspective and the monochromatic color palette.   Click here to see our other Photos of the Day ← Travelers, Season 2, Episode 5: "Jenny" Recap and Analysis Stranger Things Season 2, Chapter 8: "The Mind Flayer" Recap...
Travelers, Season 2, Episode 5: “Jenny” Recap and Analysis

Travelers, Season 2, Episode 5: “Jenny” Recap and Analysis

THE TEAM IS IN WAY OVER THEIR HEADS. In this episode, pretty much all of my questions from this season are answered. Also in this episode, Marcy, Carly and Jenny wear choker-style jewelry of various types, confirming that all style trends eventually come back around, even in the dystopian future the Travelers originate from.   Spoilers ahead!   Full Episode Gallery Full Episode Recap   Jenny is the Worst   This episode begins with Philip, in more than a super-high stupor, writing down a whole...

   THIS ONE IS A DOOZY. This episode, Mr. Robot follows in the footsteps of the film Birdman as well as all those OK Go music videos, as this entire episode was shot without any perceptible cuts. This is incredibly difficult to pull off, and in the past, I’ve really loved the sequences (not even whole episodes) in Breaking Bad and True Detective (season 1) that were shot in this fashion. Filming without cuts can be an incredibly effective storytelling device, and is always, always...

Photo of the Day: “File061-Edit.jpg” by Bryan Meyer1

PHOTO BY BRYAN MEYER1, FLICKR   WOAH, THIS PHOTO, BY BRYAN MEYER1, IS AMAZING. Beautiful long-exposure clouds create a super-soft look. The orange, green and blue tones create a bit of an unusual, oddly intense, color-palette for a photo of this type. This photo has been kindly made available for download, so click the image if you want a new desktop background.   Click here to see our other Photos of the Day ← The best anti-slipping products to keep your glasses on your face, not down...

Photo of the Day: “2. Black Dog on a Cold Day” by Taylor Gruye

PHOTO BY TAYLOR GRUYE, FLICKR   THERE’S SOMETHING ABOUT SMOKE ON A REALLY COLD DAY that feels super energetic. You know, like when it’s way, way below freezing and car exhaust looks so much bigger and fuller than normal? This photo by Taylor Gruye highlights one of the great aspects of art: The ability to get something aesthetically positive out of even a thing so negative as pollution. This photo has a real beauty about it, evoking an atmosphere of a very cold day, with very pale...

Photo of the Day: “drive me to the …” by Stamatis Iliadakis

PHOTO BY STAMATIS LLIADAKIS, FLICKR   I LOVE CONCRETE, AND I THINK STAMATIS ILIADAKIS, THE CREATOR OF THIS PHOTO, MIGHT TOO. This almost-surreal perspective in an unusual location is really beautiful in its simplicity.   With an unblemished gradient of sky as the only background, this location could be suspended in the air for all I can tell, and is reminiscent of an old video game where the processing power of the system cannot handle complex, 3D backgrounds. I like how this is composed so as...
