This duo makes confetti and party decorations for a living. We have to admit, we’re slightly jealous of their career choice. Their recent feature on the Selby also makes us a little envious.
Being from Miami, winter can be especially hard for me. I’m constantly seeking out ways to cheer myself up when the sun doesn’t quite rise for (what seems like) days on end. Tanning salons, hot yoga, wearing a bikini underneath my 10 layers of clothing – I’ve tried all the cheap mental tricks in the [...]

The Flaming Lips have nothing to prove. If if they want to make every video from their latest album be the same thing: a naked girl in a blindfold with some psychedelic stuff going on, I guess we can’t complain. It’s not lazy. It’s thematic… right? Either way, click the picture above to watch the [...]
