His work seems to dabble on the line of porn and art photography, but allegedly due to strict Japanese censorship rules which prohibit genitalia shots, he was forced to use other methods to express him self… [ Continue Reading ]

gvgv s09 runway collage 585x286 G.V.G.V., you make my heart beat faster

Behold G.V.G.V.‘s Spring/Summer ’09 collection. Yes, I know that Spring ’09 is a ways past, and that Summer ’09 is soon drawing to a close, but seeing as how it’s only available in Japan and select stores in the US and Korea, the chances of you getting your hands on one of these items is slim to none. Plus, if you’re like me, you wouldn’t be able to afford it anyway, so man up and dry your tears, and hope that H&M will come out with some like pieces soon.  [ Continue Reading ]

honda cyborglegs top 485x400 Honda to assist walking

I think it’s amazing all the work that is being done right now in order to help the disabled.
