Marblized Ice formations in Antactica | Some very cool imagery of odd ice formations that look like marble.
Brad and Angelina Refused Entry to REM Concert | Stubbs refused to let the stars and their entourage into REM’s show at SXSW. I wish I had stood by the door to see that go down. It was a good show and my old client, Jonathan Rice, opened up.
