In the age of the Internet, it’s seemingly easier than ever to provide insight — or at least an opinion, rather — to virtually any given topic. More so, there is a growing number of individuals who simply like to ruffle feathers surrounding various matters a la Internet trolls.
This new piece from The Guardian delves into just that, the life of an Internet troll. Director Kyrre Lien in turn met a global group of strongly opinionated people, those who spend much of their time debating online on the subjects they care most adamantly about. But do these individuals behave in the same way when they come offline?
When you’re a Bugatti enthusiast and — well — rich as shit, how could you further round out your collection of toys? Easy, with an insane $2.2 million USD yacht from none other than Bugatti.
The “Niniette 66” is in turn the first in a series, ranging from 50 to 80 feet in length. Decked out in titanium, carbon fiber and Bugatti’s trademark blue, the super yacht welcomes a number of the manufacturer’s familiar engineering traits, such as an accentuated center line, symmetry, and a sweeping signature curve.
While cruising along at a modest 50 miles per hour, the vessel is chock-full of luxury amenities. The deck, done up in leather and blue morta oak, is then paired with a lower deck which is referred to as the “sun pad,” then calling home to a champagne bar as well as a jacuzzi. And if you’re still feeling a bit frigid after a dip, not only can you take advantage of the jacuzzi, but you can also warm up by the fire pit — because — why not?
For a closer look at Bugatti’s otherworldy $2.2 million USD Niniette 66 super yacht, see the gallery above.

To most, 20,000 words on terms and conditions would be the ultimate bore. Comic artist Robert Sikoryak saw it as an opportunity.
Sikoryak has in turn taken the thousands upon thousands of words highlighted in iTunes’ terms and conditions section and transformed them into a graphic novel.
Terms and Conditions: A Graphic Novel thus stars the late Steve Jobs, reflecting the history of comics throughout the world.
“The motivation for this project was to play with the long form of the graphic novel, which has become so ubiquitous in the United States. And it struck me that the iTunes Terms and Conditions would make a very unlikely comic,” Sikoryak revealed when speaking with Business Insider.
“It’s (in)famous for being very long, which is surely why it popped in my head,” he then went on to add. “I loved the idea of using a well known text — in its entirety — that everyone has heard about, but very few people have ever actually read. That’s something that the Terms share with many classic works of literature.”
While the face of Jobs is present throughout the entire book, the style of each page varies, transitioning from Garfield to My Little Pony and beyond.
“I wanted to create a book that could suggest all of the kinds of comics that exist in the world,” said Sikoryak. “The visual sources come from many different strains of comics: there are some artists from North America, Europe, and Japan; independent and mainstream cartoonists; print and web cartoonists; animated characters that have been published in comic books; contemporary graphic novels and early 20th century newspaper comics. I wanted the project to feel like the internet— or the iTunes store— where it seems that everything is available and everything is possible.”

holy creative agency is currently raising funds through Indiegogo in order to transform their decorative Futuracha font into one that not only can be easily typed and saved, but also adjusts and readjusts based on the preceding and following letters. While the font is extremely popular, up to this point it could only allow designers to use it by configuring and positioning every single letter by hand.
Futuracha Pro is an Open Type Font, which magically adjusts and readjusts as you write. Its quirkiness and eccentricity are the two main features that made it one of the most beloved fonts in the whole world. Until today, nobody was able to just sit down and type with it. Featuring various combinations of letters and plenty of playful ligatures, Futuracha Pro gives creative people the opportunity to actually type and create, making their ideas extraordinary and unique!

Damien Hirst solo exhibition at Gary Tatintsian Gallery in Moscow, Russia.
From March 31 – June 1,2017, Gary Tatintsian Gallery in Moscow, Russia will present an exclusive solo show by renowned English artist, entrepreneur, and art collector, Damien Hirst. He was born in Bristol in 1965, but grew up in Leeds. From 1986 – 1989, he studied “Fine Arts” at Goldsmiths College in London. In 1988, Hirst has curated Freeze, an exhibition hosted at a vacant warehouse in the London harbor district, where he and some of his fellow students exhibited their work. In the following years, Damien Hirst has become one of the most influential and prominent artists of his generation. Please read more below.
His art is deeply rooted in different thoughts and ideas about our existence. He once said, “There’s only ever been one idea of art… The only reason why we do anything is to search for an answer to those questions: why, where, what, who? Where we do come from, where are we going, and is there a reason? The greatest paintings of all time are about that.” He continued: “I don’t want to tell anybody what to think, I just want to make you think, and make you think along with me. There are no answers, only questions, and hopefully the questions will help guide you through the darkness.”
An exclusive selection of his work can be seen from March 31 – June 1,2017 at Gary Tatintsian Gallery in Moscow, Russia. For additional information, just visit the gallery website: www.tatintsian.com
Sorry for the silly question but seeing him was one of those rare things that make you instantly feel the wonder of being a child again. Cool guy too. He, as the tree, walked through as my cousin and I were playing our set on the stage and I changed up the words of my song to mention how cool it was to see him. He came by afterwards when he’d changed back to street clothes and thanked me for it.
