ever heard of a suspended coffee?
rather than try and explain it, this little story will do a much better job. props to bulgaria and hopefully more people get on board.
‘We enter a little coffeehouse with a friend of mine and give our order. While we’re aproaching our table two people come in and they go to the counter : ’Five coffees, please. Two of them for us and three suspended’
They pay for their order, take the two and leave. I ask my friend: ’What are those ‘suspended’ coffees ?’
‘Wait for it and you will see”
Some more people enter. Two girls ask for one coffee each, pay and go. The next order was for seven coffees and it was made by three lawyers - three for them and four ‘suspended’. While I still wonder what’s the deal with those ‘suspended’ coffees I enjoy the sunny weather and the beautiful view towards the square infront of the café. Suddenly a man dressed in shabby clothes who looks like a beggar comes in throught the door and kindly asks ’Do you have a suspended coffee ?’
It’s simple - people pay in advance for a coffee meant for someone who can not afford a warm bevarage. The tradition with the suspended coffees started in Naples, but it has spread all over the world and in some places you can order not only a suspended coffee, but also a sandwich or a whole meal.

great article on the rise of female sluts in the music industry. hipster or just plain provocative?
yesterday i went to London’s National Portrait Gallery and watched david beckham sleeping for 5 mins. on a screen. unfortunately he wasn’t just sleeping on a bench in the gallery.
it felt a bit creepy. but i liked it.
sam taylor wood is by far one of my favourite photographers. her work is always so damn personal.. you just want to reach out and touch the person.

for those who love jay z, those who love barclays and those like a doco.
a documentary on jay z going back to brooklyn to play eight shows in the new barclays stadium with a dope stage. nice balance of jay z-ness and barclays branding. content worth watching.

A Japanese pop-up photo booth will use 3D-printing technology to create action figure-sized replicas of its subjects.
The Omote 3-D photo booth, which opens in the Eye of Gyre exhibition space in the Harujuku district of Tokyo on Nov. 24, features a 3-D scanner and 3-D printer setup that takes the likeness of its visitors and convert them into miniature figurines.
Posers must stand in position for around 15 minutes as the manually operated scanner records a full-body image. The raw data can then be modified and tweaked to achieve a better likeness and fine detail can be added before the 3-D color print is made.
The service offers single, double or group portraits in a variety of sizes, the largest being up to 8 inches. If you’re a fan of the results — or looking to build a miniature army — you can also order reprints of yourself and others.
However, sitters hoping for a three-dimensional rendition of their more outlandish poses and complicated ensembles should note that the limitations of the scanning and printing technologies mean there isn’t much room for experimentation with your figurine portraits yet.
Shiny jewelry and accessories are ruled out, as are stiletto heels, hoop earrings, anything with a mesh, fluffy sweaters, chiffon, trekking boots, stripes, glasses and bags. Customers are also discouraged from pulling adventurous or particularly dynamic poses on account of needing to remain stationary for 15 minutes.
Prices start at ¥21,000 (around $265) for a small single figurine.
ok, it might not be the funniest piece of work ever created but props to the cancer council in australia for doing something different, relevant and getting the word ‘shit’ into a charity ad.

divorce day mad dwarf.
The divorce day garden dwarf. He arrived in a new car. Arrogant, shallow and heartless. The dwarf was closing the gate that he had destroyed himself some time ago. At that moment it flew over to the windscreen of the new car, rebounded and landed on the asphalt surface. It was a long loop, drawing an arc of time – and this short long arc defined the end of love.
