Apple recently bought Beats (headphones, speakers, nascent music streaming service) for $3 billion dollars. Strange deal on the face of it. I was perplexed but am now slowly coming around. Here is a great article that saves me the time of trying to say why this deal might work: To understand Beats you need to understand Lady Gaga. And it's a good read in terms of the future of the music business (and Hollywood and the rest of the media world) apart from the Apple/Beats angle.

For all of them, it started much as it will start for you: a strangely persistent itch at the back of the head, a discomfort on the left side, a lump fingered in the shower. Something it became impossible to ignore.

RIP Massimo Vignelli

Really just wanted to beat Bill to the punch.
At least I knew who he was.

whole food giveth and whole foods taketh away. today it was giveth and im not talking about the free sample of yogurt with chia seeds which tasted like soggy granola. locked my bike up out front again to one of those circular racks the city occasionally sees fit to install and when i came out after about 20 minutes i realized i had locked the front wheel to the frame but somehowi did not feed it through the rack. it was just leaning against it for anyone to walk away with albeit with a hefty lock that might have taken some effort to undo. actually the lock is worth about as much as the bike. needless to say i would have been more than a little crestfallen had it been gone and i never would have known i was mostly to blame.

Bosnian pensioner Momir Bojic cleans his wooden Volkswagen Beetle car in front of his home in Celinac near Banja Luka, on April 2, 2014. Bojic, 71, an avid Volkswagen fan, created the car from over 50,000 separate pieces of oak and took two years to complete it.
