Lazy Halloween Baller

Unfortunately, Halloween isn't a big thing in Copenhagen. Danes have their own fancy dress outfit, Fastelavn, so the 31st is like America muscling in. If I had a party to go to, I'd be sporting this bad boy. Pinched from Thrillist.

Forget still, it's real life

I'm a big fan of magic found in the commonplace. Tjalf Sparnaay's hyper-realistic paintings, or what he calls 'megarealism', are magnetic.

Elections by design

30 reasons just reminded me that I need to register to vote in Denmark ASAP. Powerful project. Get more reasons here.

30 Reasons is a 30-day email and internet poster campaign encouraging voters to re-elect President Barack Obama. We’ve asked 30 talented artists and designers to each create one poster describing his reason to reelect President Obama. We all have the ability to speak up, to stand up, to impact the course of this country.

The Food Project

Lovely concept, great story. From Advertising to following your culinary heart, a writer and chef open their own restaurant, Comodo, in SOHO after opening their home to foodie strangers.

It's no surprise they continue to innovate by creating an "Instagram menu". Patrons are asked to snap pictures of their meals and upload them to Instagram, with the hashtag #comodomenu.

Chicks in binders

One of the many reasons why the interwebs rocks: Mitt's binder meme and why brands, errr Trapper Keeper, should tap into cultural conversations to become hyper-relevant. "Over the past 24 hours, that comment has sparked more than 5,000 public online mentions of Trapper Keeper, according to data pulled from Radian6." What a missed opportunity, unless a response video is in the works, a la Maxipad?

The conversation even made its way into Amazon.

A bit of sole

I could use a new pair of brogues; perfect for the cheeky leg cross during uncomfortable or unnecessary meetings. Mark McNairy's complete Fuck-off collection on Highsnob.
