Shiny black plastic? Check. iPhone/iPod dock? Check. Ability to explain the “k” in its name? Okay, so the Roth KRadio (£200; roughly $330) can’t do everything, but it can give you access to thousands of Internet radio stations thanks to an Ethernet port and built-in Wi-Fi, playback music from your iPhone or iPod while it charges, hook up to DAB and DAB+ stations in Europe, wake you and your significant other up on time thanks to twin alarms, and even tune in “old time” radio with its FM tuner — and that’s good enough for us.

Modern Bathrooms You Need To Pee In

September 10th, 2011 David No comments

Unless you’re feral, peeing in bathrooms is a mundane task. But pee in one of these crazy bathrooms, and it becomes a fantastical adventure!

By Zack Zeigler

TEMP Image 2 1 Modern Bathrooms You Need To Pee InGuys will pee anywhere. On the side of a highway, against a building, in a public swimming pool. Because of our anatomical makeup, we have the luxury of not being bathroom snobs.

But that doesn’t mean we don’t appreciate a good bathroom. And it’s nice to turn a mundane daily activity into something interesting (without getting arrested). And peeing into the gaping mouth of an alligator, or while people walk by inches away oblivious to what we’re doing, or while watching Goldfinger in a bathroom seemingly made out of gold definitely qualify as interesting.

And you can do all of those things in at least one of these bizarre bathrooms. Just be sure to wash your hands after you’re done.

This monstrosity in the home of our future overlords has 1,000 toilets, TVs, calm music playing, and urinals shaped like alligators, open-mouthed creatures, and, naturally, the Virgin Mary. And yet for some reason our favorite part is the sinks.

Free Stuff in NYC: Yes, There Is Such a Thing

August 29th, 2011 David No comments

NYCskyline 590x391 Free Stuff in NYC: Yes, There Is Such a ThingSure, New York City is an expensive place to live. But we’ll let you in on a little secret: We New Yorkers are actually just a bunch of cheapos. That trait is never more apparent than in the summer, when the price of fun stuff — Movies! Music! More! — drops as quickly as temperatures rise.

In honor of our Last Minute sale, featuring the trendy Thompson LES, the aristocratic Plaza Athénée and the laidback Hotel Roger Williams, we’ve put together a bazillion* free things happening in this city in the coming weeks. See? Sometimes it does pay to wait until the last minute.

*Number approximate (there are literally too many free things to count. This is a humble selection).

Free movies

New Yorkers go reel (har har) crazy in the summer — there’s a free outdoor movie screening for practically every night of the week. Spend Mondays in Midtown’s Bryant Park and watch a classic film on the big screen — upcoming selections include Cool Hand Luke, Airplane!, Dirty Harry and the film noir High Sierra. Mondays are also movie nights on Coney Island, a classic summertime destination in its own right; the schedule includes films from screen luminaries such as Woody Allen (Annie Hall) and Justin Bieber (Never Say Never). Also across the river, Brooklyn Bridge Park hosts film nights on Thursdays, with a varied assortment of options ranging from the kid-friendly An American Tail to the creepy Rosemary’s Baby, and Red Hook park has its own set of options on Tuesday nights, like WALL-E and The Fast and The Furious (plus: Food trucks!) Up north in Queens, check out the Socrates Sculpture Park’s summer film festival with international (classy, serious) films like Biutiful and At The Edge of Russia.

Free music

The Washington Square Park free concert season wraps with a performance by jazz master Charles Mingus and his Orchestra on August 2. Enjoy a little wine with your music at the City Winery’s Hudson Square Festival series, with August performances by Nicole Atkins and The Wood Brothers (the wine isn’t free, but the tunes — and the mellow vibe — are). If you find yourself in Central Park, stick around the centrally located Naumburg band shell for free classical concerts on August 9 and 22. Sample some of the hottest shows on Broadway with the lunchtime cast performances in Bryant Park, featuring music from hits like Mamma Mia!, Priscilla Queen of the Desert, The Lion King and more. And of course there are the dueling morning concert series put on by the Today show and Good Morning America, with acts ranging from Lenny Kravitz to Nicki Minaj.

Free … more

If you’ll be celebrating America’s pastime by attending a Yankees or Mets game, be sure to check out the free Water Taxi to the games. A cash bar and scenic views? We’re there.

The always-free Staten Island Ferry makes for a particularly nice ride in the summer, offering the chance to see the Statue of Liberty from the water without the tourist crowds. Time a ride during sunset, and you’ve got yourself a romantic beginning to the evening.

Central Park’s famous, free Shakespeare in the Park is over by August, but the irreverent Shakespeare in the Parking Lot goes through August 13 — this year’s selection is Hamlet.

The El Museo de Barrio has free walking tours that depart every Saturday, with stops at spots like the Graffiti Wall of Fame and at murals throughout Spanish Harlem. (RSVP required but admission is free).

Limon Dance Company offers free weekly dance classes on the Bryant Park lawn through September 10 — no experience necessary.

And head to Union Square and take advantage of free yoga classes beginning at 7 a.m. — because your health never goes on vacation.

La Jolla, Calif.

Architect Wallace Cunningham designed The Razor, listed for $32 million. Among its many cutting-edge features is a pool that seems to disappear into the view of the Torrey Pines State Reserve.

Infinity pools are all the rage for the optical-illusion-loving set that enjoys a nice view. This pool offers a more urban view of L.A. Just minutes up Doheny Drive from downtown, this 5,000-square-foot home designed for indoor/outdoor living is for sale for $6.29 million.

Plenty of windows

Next to the pool are a spa and outdoor shower. Inside the home are three bedrooms, 4.5 bathrooms and more than enough windows to enjoy the views.

A rare New York treat

On the garden level, the 8-foot deep, 26-foot long pool is perfect for laps. The pool is a rarity in New York, where the Department of Buildings no longer permits them. The pool opens into a 16-foot high solarium sanctuary that connects to a private garden. The five-floor home also has a sauna, five wood-burning fireplaces and a rooftop deck. An indoor pool in the heart of New York City is the ultimate luxury statement. In this 22.5-foot-wide Chelsea town house, you can haveyour own indoor oasis for $11 million.

More of a pond than a pool, this photo shows it side on. As a piece of architectural narrative, the Bali Four Seasons pool entry is exceptional. A wooden bridge takes you over a chasm to an infinity pool with the jungle wrapping around the background, the pool floating 50 feet above it.

The entrance to the hotel is through a slit in the pool to the lobby underneath and is worth of a James Bond movie set.

200911 w pools hong kong Pools of the world

Intercontinental Hong Kong Pool

Why It’s Cool: Its underwater music is novel, but it’s the entire roof terrace complex that makes this pool unique. Not only does it have sexy sunbeds, beautiful teak decks, and a pool concierge, but there are three infinity spa pools (cool, medium, hot) with views of bustling Victoria Harbour.

Interesting Fact: Legendary tai chi master William Ng offers complimentary lessons poolside on the roof terrace for guests.

Viceroy Pool at Icon Brickell Miami

Why It’s Cool: Designed by Philippe Starck, the three pools at the swanky new Viceroy hotel are connected, making it the longest pool complex in the country. At 205 feet, the main pool is the longest in Florida, while the 80-person hot tub is the world’s largest. Quirky details include a reflection pool with submerged tables and chairs.

Interesting Fact: Designed to mirror the Miami River running through downtown Miami, the pool literally runs through the condo “metropolis” of Icon Brickell.

Grace Hotel Pool New York City

Why It’s Cool: Home to some of the hottest parties and events in NYC’s Times Square, this indoor pool is conveniently connected to a 40-foot bar (the only swim-up bar in the city) and comes equipped with mood lighting, stadium seating, and a projector to show movies. There’s a large coed steam and sauna near the DJ booth.

Interesting Fact: Celebrity pool sightings include Nelly Furtado, Michael Stipe, and Tyson Beckford.

200911 w pools grand wailea Pools of the world

Grand Wailea Canyon Activity Pool Maui, Hawaii

Why It’s Cool: This 25,700-square-foot wet playground is a destination in itself (guests receive a map upon entry). Nine free-form pools at six levels (from 40 feet to sea level) are connected by a “river” that carries swimmers along at varying speeds, from lazy river currents to whitewater rapids. Highlights include seven slides, grottoes, scuba certification pool, and a “Tarzan pool” with rope swing.

Interesting Fact: Going up? The pool is home to the world’s only water elevator—swimmers are lifted to the surface in a sealed chamber.

Why It’s Cool: Conceived by über-hip Clodagh, the pool features a stunning glass-encased centerpiece staircase. It stretches 28 feet into the middle, so swimmers can easily gawk at guests-and vice versa.

Ok, technically this isn’t a pool in the typical sense of a hotel pool. But, it is a warm body of water that you have to pay a pretty penny to get into. Therefore it falls into the category of a luxury hotel pool.

Floatation Tank i-Sopod to float away into distant dreams

August 3rd, 2011 David No comments

floatation tank i sopod 1 Floatation Tank i Sopod to float away into distant dreams I enjoy a relaxing bath but a Jacuzzi is a bit too uncomfortable for my taste, I would prefer something that spacious indoors instead. And the i-Sopod floatation tank fits the bill perfectly. Moreover, the extra-spacious tank comes with power-packed features like programmable lighting style and music choice for complete enjoyment. You can also pick colors to match your bathroom’s décor. Plus it also sports an “innovative filtration system” making it more hygienic. Click here for details.

High For This: House of Balloons

Great Song

 

By Will Hermes
April 5, 2011

“Trust me girl/You’ll wanna be high for this,” purrs a seducer near the beginning of this mysterious mix-tape debut. It’s reasonable advice. A seamless, self-released concept album that set off an internet brushfire — complete with Twitter clues from evident co-conspirator Drake and Weeknd itself — it traces a woozy, debauched journey over nine slow jams that join the current conversation in hallucinatory r&b and indie rock: James Blake, Frank Ocean, jj, Salem, and Beach House. The latter even appear to get sampled here, twice: “Gila” bubbles up in “Loft Music,” as does “Master of None” in “The Party & The After Party.” (B-more, you have much to answer for.) The rest of the tracks are equally haunting: the rhythm of the aching “What You Need” is built around the surprisingly sad sound of what may be a straw sucking up the last drop of a milk shake — or something more potent.

Artist to Watch: The Weeknd

Toronto singer Abel Tesfaye, who seems to be the entire group, has a striking high tenor: at points on “House Of Balloons/Glass Table Girls,” he sounds like Michael Jackson yelping into an intercom in a Propofol haze. It can all be disturbingly raw, even when — especially when — Weeknd overplay the tales of the tragic high life — check the plea “Bring the drugs, baby/I can bring my pain,” on the killing, blue-black “Wicked Games.” The wormy hooks and earnest falsettos suggest the possibility of ginormous hits if Weeknd were to clean things up a bit, both lyrically and sonically. But let’s hope that doesn’t happen too soon. (The production team was reportedly led by progressive Toronto hip-hop producers Martin “Doc” Mckinney and Illangelo.)
