Watch this video from Aza Raskin about how clever CSS write-up can mask what’s actually being shown on a webpage.

I have an odd fascination with these oil fields and oil pumps. I’ve seen them so much in films that I feel like I know them in a sense while at the same time wishing I could experience them in person.

MTV Japan took a tour of the Supreme and Triple 5 Soul store on Lafayette Street back in 1996. Here’s the video. The Supreme store for the most part looks the same as it does now, but the Triple 5 Soul store certainly expanded in later years (but is now a Brooklyn Industries store). By the way, what ever happened to T5S? Their website doesn’t even sell clothes anymore.
