Bunny Rabbit Cafe in Nogoya, Japan, is in the business of bunnies. For $1 a minute you can cuddle and play with one of their hard- working staff rabbits. OR you can bring your own bunny (byob) to have it meet new friends. The owners of the cafe thought of the idea since many people in Nogoya can’t own pets in their apartments. 

I love this idea! I hope someone in New York opens up a Bunny Cafe. Imagine how much happier people would be during rush hour! For similar videos visit the It News YouTube page.

So this video is almost a year old- but yesterday my roommate showed it to me and it’s so amazing! Check out this priceless collaboration between Bon Ivar and Lykke Li with “Dance Dance.”

She is so awesome! And her jeans remind me of the Genetic Patched Flares just launched in the December FP catalog!

After discovering these Sound Suits sculptures courtesy of the magazines in my doctor’s office yesterday, I concluded that everyone named “Nick Cave” is inherently talented and amazing. Check out these works of art by sculpture Nick Cave:

It’s fun, it’s free and it’s… upstate?! For all of you who live in Westchester (or even in Fairfield) County who can’t make it to the events we post about going on in BROOKLYN and NYC you should def check out “First Wednesdays” at the Nueberger Museum of Art, located on the SUNY Purchase campus! This Wednesday is the starting event for the monthly event the museum holds for students by students. There’s free fish and chips (my guess would be to corilate their current exhibit on English culture) and lots of fun! Activities include sharing music and a screening of “48- Up,” a film by Michael Apted. The Nueberger also has an AMAZING exhibit currently called “BRITISH SUBJECTS: IDENTITY AND SELF- FASHIONING 1967- 2009” who’s opening reception was attended by CHUCK CLOSE (I got a chance to meet him… awesome!) Check out the flier for Wednesday’s event below:

Thom York from Radiohead has recently (and a little randomly) announced the debut of his own solo album called “The Eraser which also featured Flea from the RHCP. Living in New York made it impossible to attend to both the rehearsal show and the shows at the Orpheum for the album in L.A. but thanks to the internet (which Thom Yorke and Radiohead have both been successful in using to their viral ventures with music) I’ve been able to check out the music and performances online. I can’t get enough of Thom Yorke and any musical projects he touches! I also can’t seem to get enough of solo projects apparantly (sight post made weeks earlier about “Fever Ray.) Enjoy the footage that’s been compiled!

Also- enjoy some articles from both the New York Times and the Guardian about the band.
