Lil Penny seriously needs to make a guest appearance in one of these ads. Chris make it happen! Shouts to old Tyra though. She was so much more appealing back in the day before she thought her two cents were worth than... well, two cents.

Dame Dash's Under 100 DIY Shows

"and what he's trying to foster is just a progressive, non-contractual thing--artists collaborating with each other in a very open environment, where there is very little pressure."

Andre Kikoski Designs The Wright

Andre Kikoski Architect recently designed a new restaurant, The Wright, for the Guggenheim Museum in NY. The grand opening took place last week and after a quick google search for their menu, it looks like folks will be stopping by for more than just the atmosphere. The Wright's American themed menu created by David Bouley protégé Rodolfo Contreras features "local seasonal dishes like seared diver scallops in sea urchin sauce and slow roasted suckling pig with quince and violet mustard."
