friday favorites: august 27

SEE IT: art I fell for this week (legos!)
The world's skyscrapers in Lego form. (The Eiffel Tower is missing though... I know it's not a skyscraper but the STL Arch is there. Booo.)

MOMA art reinterpreted with Legos. Awesome.

 

WATCH IT: videos I peeped this week that you should too
This video of 4 guys watching the 2010 Miss America pageant is hysterical. The video is the announcement of the top 15 ladies... their reactions are friggin' priceless.

Something about Tavi intrigues me. Fashion genius? Prodigy? Internet sensation? Whatever you think of the 14-year-old fashion blogger, she's getting recognized by fashion elite.

1. Ghosts 'n' Stuff by Deadmau5 2. Feral Love by Wakey!Wakey! 3. Brooklyn by Wakey!Wakey! 4. 1876 - The Brooklyn Theatre Fire by Wakey!Wakey! 5. Square Peg Round Hole by Wakey!Wakey! 6.
