Erotic Sketches of Pablo Picasso

Juxtapoz // Saturday, May 05, 2012
"Pablo Picasso, famous for his love life, put women at the center of his painting, interpreting the world through them and using them to project his erotic desires." I really can't help but crack a smile when catching a glimpse into the intimate mind of this master's sketchbook.

Music // Friday, May 04, 2012
We felt we would be doing a disservice today if we didn't mention the immeasurable loss of Beastie Boy Adam "MCA" Yauch, who died today at the age of 47 after a long battle with cancer.

Get Slapped

Street Art // Friday, May 04, 2012
Somewhere in Cleveland, an artist by the name of Rove painted one dude slapping the hell out of another. The obscure face behind them is strangely awesome as well. Often, slapping can be more satisfying than hitting, try it.

No more pelting your friends with ping pong balls and guzzling tasteless beer for you. You've grown up. You have taste. When you bring your friends over, you exhibit not only your prowess on the chess board, but also exhibit your fine taste in wine. In fact, you beat them mercilessly and make them drink every glass... just kidding.
