Astronomers Discover New Diamond Planet

Astronomers have observed a planet in our skies, racing around a tiny star, that appears to be made of diamond.


The new planet consists mostly of carbon and is far denser than any other known, and it's this intense density that leads scientists to suggest the carbon must be crystalline. Essentially, a large part of this enticing world is comprised of diamond.

According to Matthew Bailes of Swinburne University of Technology, "The evolutionary history and amazing density of the planet all suggest it is comprised of carbon -- i.e. a massive diamond orbiting a neutron star every two hours in an orbit so tight it would fit inside our own Sun."

The planet lies 4,000 light years away and is thought to be the remnant of a once-massive star. 

Bling bling blaow! Read more about this curious planet here.

2012 Ferrari 458 Spider

The 2012 Ferrari 458 Spider is the world's first mid-rear engined berlinetta to come equipped with a retractable hardtop. The car's retracting back-panel mechanism is similar to the one featured on the Superamerica and, when stowed, hides under a double-hump rear deck. The roof folds down into a space in front of the engine bay, in 14 seconds, and the independently operable rear window doubles as a wind blocker.


The real fun begins with the 4.5 liter direct-injection V8, 570 HP engine. Top speed is around 198 mph, with a 0-62 time of 3.4 seconds.

DJ AM Tributes: LV, SF, NY, LA

Two years ago, on August 28, we lost producer, professional party-er, and acclaimed DJ Adam Goldstein, known by the music community simply as, DJ AM.



DJ AM played an incredible role in the LA party scene and, along with Dim Mak DJ Steve Aoki, launched one of Hollywood's most popular dance party of the mid-2000's, Banana Split Sundays. BSB was truly the party to be at. There was always a keg on the dance floor, hip scene kids, and regular cameo's by Sam Ronson, LMFAO, Steve Aoki, and many more. I can't count how many Monday morning hangovers can be credited to Banana Split, and I miss the hell out of dancing all night while AM graced us with his turntable talent.



As we come upon the 2nd anniversary of his tragic death, tributes are being made nationally in his remembrance. Check the flyers below for information on the LV, SF, NY, and LA tributes.














Rest in Power.

The shoe features a leather and canvas outer, with a fresh plaid gray inner.
