So, the father, apparently a creative individual, decided to put together this amazing structure. I’m not sure how long it took to put it together, or even if they had planned a timeframe, but it looks like there was a ton of detail and thought put into it. Read the whole post

Andy Warhol’s Townhouse Selling for $5.8 Million

Andy Warhol's former townhouse is on the market for $5.8 million

I recently read on Radar Online that Andy Warhol’s former apartment in New York is on sale for $5.8 million. At first I got a little bit excited because he was an artist. I always get excited about other artists. But I am not a huge fan of Andy Warhol. I don’t think that his Campbell’s soup labels and Marilyn Monroe diptych could persuade me to live in his townhouse. What do you think? Would you live in this Manhattan townhouse? Read the whole post

via Microsoft Tag

I had every intention of rewording the following paragraph, but there is just no way to say it better. It is perfect. So, I am quoting Elliott Lemenager from Microsoft Tag. Wow, holy QR Codes.

Get ready to have your mind blown with QR Code mania. Russia’s futuristic, QR code pavilion at this year’s Venice Architecture Biennale, is a sight to behold.

Talk about bringing camping into the 21st century

I know a lot of people who would be overjoyed to go “camping” in something like this. Very modern. I would take this thing and tour the US… forget camping.
