Japanese cosmetics brands have long had a presence in the high-end American beauty market. Shiseido and Shu Uemura products have been widely available in the United States since the '90’s and have many adherents who appreciate the high quality of these brands. A few years ago, cosmetics retail giant Sephora introduced us to Imju’s Fiberwig Mascara, which promised to create as-long-as-fake lashes with its high-tech formula. Since then, interest in Japanese cosmetics and skincare brands have expanded rapidly as beauty enthusiasts spread the word about favorite products via blogs and message boards. Most of this hype is focused not on high-end cosmetics, but on drugstore and youth-market brands not normally sold outside of Asia.

Trying something new can create two different scenarios. It can end up as a failed attempt that can ultimately ruin someone’s reputation and reputability to the point that their name is tainted by that single instance. Or it can actually end up on the opposite end of the spectrum, making it so critically and commercial acclaimed that it could boost a person’s notability overnight. Although finding fame is already a mission that has been far accomplished by world famous DJ and producer Joel Zimmerman aka DeadMau5, his hunger for something new still seems unfulfilled as he heads into the studio with an interesting choice for a collaborator.

Safe enough to say, if you’re a Dubstep fan then you definitely like bass; BUT! Are you a bass head? Within the past 5 years there’s been a world-wide bass boom with the up-come of Dubstep inside our quickly growing EDM seed, and it’s only evolving more (thank the EDM Gods). Of course, with regards to our friends Knife Party, Nero, and Noisia who usually stay on the happier, upbeat/club type-step, few other DJs dare to go deeper. Hits like ‘Witchcraft’ by Pendelum, ‘Infinite’ by Bassnectar, and one of the newest, ‘Fallout’ by Emalkay & The Others are a few triggers to knowing you’re hooked onto the bass chain, especially when there’s not a second to breath between drops and you just want more. Now, this is no definition of which Dubstep is better or what style makes you a better fan, there are simply levels wherein some can handle and some cannot. Let’s talk a fan favorite; Bassnectar.
Cities in the United States are not as bicycle-friendly as other cities around the world are. Take Amsterdam for example, bikes outnumber cars and are the main mode of transportation for many of the city’s inhabitants. It's safer (espeically after a few cafe trips), cheaper to use, and overall better for the environment. Many European cities have thriving bicycle-sharing programs that allow tourists and residents alike to sign out a bike for the day, or even just for 20 minutes to run an errand, at a relatively cheap rate. Like most things born in Europe, the United States is a little slower on picking up on innovative, environmentally-friendly programs. Starting May 27th though this is about to change with CitiBank’s introduction of their Citi Bike share program.
