Ringer Bell by Spurcycle

shop
A San Francisco company launches the bike bell into the 21st century $35.00

If there was ever a bike accessory in desperate need of innovation, it is the bike bell, which is usually either oversized and clunky or undersized and dinky (and almost always cheaply made).

Launched as a Kickstarter project on August 7th,......read more

In the new video for Belle and Sebastian's version of "Crash" by the Primitives, the bandmembers shape-shift into adorable animated versions of themselves, surrounded by a world of fast-moving big people.

Robin Friend: Belly of the Whale

read
Sublime pics explore our relationship with earth.

The photographic work of London-based Aussie Robin Friend examines the uneasy relationship between man and nature.

Do Patchwork Emissions Cuts Work?

They can, if countries agree on rules and build trust, says Elliot Diringer

Governments have set a 2015 deadline for a new global climate agreement. But after the debacle in Copenhagen four years ago, when COP15 failed to produce the binding climate change treaty that many of us expected, you would be forgiven for lacking optimism about it. There are, however, reasons for hope, as Elliot Diringer points out in Nature this week. While there has been no formal agreement......read more

Hammock "Breathturn"

watch
Dreamy visuals directed by David Altobelli.

If we were to imagine the perfect imagery to go along with the deep ambient vibes of Hammock, it'd probably involve kids playing and things floating in the wind. Turns out David Altobelli agrees. The director's video for "Breathturn," from Hammock's 2010 record Chasing After Shadows... Living With the Ghosts, is a thing of beauty, nicely matching the Nashville post-rock......read more
