You never knew you always wanted. There must be more to life than this. Thirty something years ago, Freddie Mercury and MJ hung out and made music together. The songs were never released, until now. Queen has cleaned up the tracks and is releasing them on their new album Queen Forever.  I love the song.

Called 'Hong Kong Memoirs’ the series plays on … [Read more...]

DESIGN | Concrete Jungle.

I was perusing photographer Douglas Friedman AKA The Facinator's portfolio, which is fabulous and totally worth a look, or two, or three, when I came across this "facinating" place. I know Concrete Jungle is a cheesy title, but LOOK, it's literally a concrete jungle!
