Failing Lights, Noise Nomads, Dude War, and Pussy Galore are all now available through the colette online store.

The Chaise Vari, handmade outdoor furniture of metal and PVC cord by Mexico's Esrawe Studio, is a reinterpretation of the work done by itinerant weavers in the streets of Mexico City who create woven pieces for passersby. Other designs by Esrawe include the Block Bookshelves that fit together thanks to slots and the Centipede series of benches that offers movement and grace to users who can choose from concave or convex seating, or even a spot to lie down. The many legs make it look as though the piece is walking, and the undulating shape adds to the sense of fluidity.
Via Nicolay's site we're blessed with this amazing tribute to Prince , "Purple Flip," by The Foreign Exchange , ?uestlove, Zo! and Carlitta Durrand. I'll let 'Tay and Nic explain this one: "In the wake of the incredible loss we suffered on June 25, this joint took on somewhat of a deeper meaning. We decided to share it with our fans not only as a token of appreciation, but also as a way of paying respect to one of our last living musical geniuses. Let's not wait until tragedy strikes before we show love and gratitude to our heroes, people. Give them their flowers while they live. This one's for you, Mr. Nelson. You are loved and appreciated." This joint was recorded over a month ago for a tribute party ?uestlove was organizing to honor Prince. For you non-purple-heads, the Prince song they are flipping is "Take Me With You."

Palace Skateboards is a new London based brand who’s aim is to produce well-designed skate goods. To celebrate their launch, Slam City Skates and the local PWBC skate gang have teamed up to create a limited first series of boards with imagery revolving heavily around the triangle. With pro skater Olly Todd on the team, and designs by artists such as Fergadelic and Will Bankhead, Palace is certainly one to watch. Now in at The Hideout.

The latest season of MTV’s The Hills began last night (minus Lauren Conrad, but plus Kristin Cavallari). For those who (front like you) don’t keep up with the show, it’s basically about some decent-looking rich L.A. girls with superficial, bullshit drama that seems to be never-ending. MTV’s spin-off series The City, starring Whitney Port, is pretty much exactly the same thing, only set in NYC.
