Randomly found these beautiful photographs by Bill Sosin. They capture the romantic distortion of light’s effect on rain. I know we don’t normally have non-fashion or music-based photography, but I know after seeing these I will make more of an effort to include them…

Saw this video with California surf/punk-rocker Wavves. I had the pleasure of meeting him earlier this year and he was actually a very nice fellow, but this video does nothing to promote that notion. Though his “dont give a fuck” attitude is part of his charm. Enjoy!

Excuse the brevity of our past few posts, we’ve been extrememly busy with classes and job searching for this summer. But here is another brief post, though I think this is a pretty interesting hybrid bike from Lexus.

Here is what the company had to say about its new product:

Lexus has pioneered high performance, low emissions and optimum fuel efficiency with its full hybrid Lexus Hybrid Drive powertrain technology. The Hybrid Bicycle adopts similar principles, with the pedal power of the rider boosted by assistance to the front wheel from a 240W electric motor, via a 25.9V Lithium-ion battery, with a choice of Eco or Power modes. And, as with Lexus Hybrid Drive, there is an energy regeneration function that helps recharge the battery by capturing kinetic energy generated under braking.

The Lexus Hybrid Bicycle has all-wheel drive, by means of a belt system. It is equipped with an electric eight-speed Shimano internal gear system, which references the sophisticated eight-speed shift-by-wire automatic transmission of Lexus’s LS 600h limousine. The carbon fibre construction shares the same light-but-strong composite materials technology that was used on Valentino Rossi’s MotoGP-winning motorcycle.
