Tell Me a Story
The New York Times has a very cool end of the year feature: a compilation of the 54 sound and image profiles that they've been releasing throughout the year.  It's a digital and human masterpiece.

Overpriced
Love these boots?  Too bad.  Isabel Marant's Otway boots cost $1295 and have over a two month wait list as a result of arbitrary inventory control and absurd rules like forcing all customers to buy the shoe in France.  I thought the "it" product was over. 





























Urban Friendly
The Polite Umbrella, for crowded city streets.  [Via A Cup of Jo]

Ew
Lindsay Lohan is selling off her clothes.  More power to her...I'm all for consigning, and she probably has more nice clothes than she could possibly ever need/want/wear...but I'd rather not know that they came from her closet.  She probably thinks the stuff will be valued higher because of the celebrity association, though I'm willing to bet that it will have quite the opposite effect.





Whimsical
This guy has been around for a while, but for those of you not in the know (I was one of them till yesterday), Pogo composes songs from existing sounds and dialogue within a film, and then synchs up the song with images from the film.  He's just released a new one for the movie Up, which can be found here. Beware though, it looks like Disney is pretty aggressively removing these.  Pogo's most popular video was apparently for Disney's Alice in Wonderland, but it's nowhere to be found.  My favorite is Mary's Magic, taken from the 1993 adaptation of The Secret Garden.

It's worth looking at Cyrillic and copy-pasting:

Here's the Pogo Alice video: http://repka.tv/video/46691

But my favorite, by far, is his Mary Poppins:
