One of the most unexpected marketing success stories in recent months has been the ascendance of Trivago, a Düsseldorf-based travel search engine.
Some data from researcher YouGov's BrandIndex shows Trivago has come out of nowhere to become as well-known among travelers as Priceline. Some 29% of 3,200 leisure travelers polled by YouGov recall seeing an ad for Trivago — the same amount as Priceline. Expedia got 19% in the same poll. Tripadvisor, which recently launched a $30 million ad campaign, went from 5% to 15%, which is about half of Trivago's score.Advertising, Marketing, Business, and Trivago
Ceramic alpacas! What’s not to love about a ceramic alpaca. Firstly, it’s an alpaca. Secondly, it’s made from ceramics. Thirdly, it looks terrific. And fourthly it works as a plant holder! Not to sound like a broken record, but what’s not to love!
These fantastic designs are the work of Monica Ramos (an illustrator who we featured on the site a couple of months ago). Created under the name Rituals, Monica sees this work as simply an extension of her image-making. These objects are tangible, functional and just as full of personalty as her other work. I love them.
Unfortunately this edition sold out almost immediately, but you can still keep abreast of further work by visiting the Rituals shop.
very excited for this :o
Disco-pop auteur Adam Bainbridge, aka Kindness, has revealed the details behind the follow-up to his 2012 debut, World, You Need A Change Of Mind. The new album is called Otherness and features guest spots from Robyn, Blood Orange’s Dev Hynes, and more. The first track he’s shared is from the new album is “World Restart” and it’s a brassy, funky number featuring vocals from Kelela and Ade. Listen to the song and check out a tracklist below.
this is kinda pretty & neat
The earliest incarnations of the recipe come from 1600 BC in Babylonia, and since then, not a lot has changed (although we don’t use stone tablets anymore). A list of ingredients, a set of directions with cook times – this is really all you need. Berlin based photographer Nora Luther though has come up with a clever way of reimagining the recipe, by photographing all of the elements flying in mid-air.
As she says in the project description, her intention is that “the look of the ready cooked dish is left to one`s own imagination.” The way she’s photographed the pieces of the whole are stunning, like a food ballet captured in mid leap.
i'm lovin' it
my art pop could mean anything.
If Katy Perry was going for a dazzling, eye-popping colorgasm with her video for “This Is How We Do,” the fifth single released off Prism, then she can stamp “accomplished” across this particular mission. The visual for the party-vibe pop jam features Rolling Stone cover girl Katy and a pair of her girlfriends tearing through hair colors and ’80s-leaning outfits as they strut and twirl through a series of vivid, computer-generated backgrounds. They’ve also got a crew of handsome male dancers on hand to serve them popsicles and assemble a Maserati. Convenient Perry!
Did we mention that there’s a (pretty realistic) Mariah Carey impersonator? Or a twerking ice cream cone?! Good God — watch above!

i just love her
that bulge tho
Lauren Martin has a fantastic piece on something you may not believe: the more intelligent you are the more likely you are to stay up late. Compiling several studies she found that people who are extremely intelligent tend to sleep during the following hours:
Weekday: 12:29 am -7:52 am
Weekend: 1:44 am -11:07 am
Now, just because you may sleep at these times doesn’t mean you’re a genius, but Lauren has made a pretty great list which might explain why this trend might be happening.

guess i'll have to watch an episode of brooklyn 99 :|
The B—- is back!
Logo has acquired the eight unaired episodes of ABC’s late, underrated comedy Don’t Trust the B—- in Apartment 23, and will air them Saturdays at 10/9c beginning July 19.
Leading into the first of those eight eps, the cable net will air a 16-episode B—-marathon from 1 pm-10 pm.
ABC axed the Krysten Ritter sitcom last year midway through its second season. Those eight never-before-seen half-hours have been collecting dust ever since.
Which I'm not a short person. I wish I could tell you why but I can't.
god she is just the best
Nina Persson, the Swedish singer who has fronted the playful pop-rock band the Cardigans on and off since 1992 and has also featured in the trio A Camp, released her debut solo album Animal Heart this year. One of the standout tracks was the pulsing mid-tempo disco track “Food For The Beast,” which now has an eye-catching video by Tomas Melinder of the Malmö creative firm Top Dollar. The clip finds Persson behind and in front of various flashes of light — disco balls, video projections, undefined ethereal glimmers — while continuing to be the charismatic performer we’ve always known her to be. Watch below.
Feeling unsure of your creative decisions? The team at Fuzzco have created Pocket Art Director, the perfect way to get feedback without the annoying art director breathing down your neck. They’ve cleverly thought of three experiences: one is a digital version of the die which you can try online, you can print it out, or you can buy a real life version that resembles the design-y version of something you’d find in a D&D shop. Genius.
:') so glad she won! she looks great. we're behind on season 2 of orphan black, is it as good as season 1 (no spoilers) ?
Frosty, the Tiny Baby Goat with the Tiny Baby Goat Wheelchair, is now prancing around on his healed Tiny Baby Goat legs sans the Tiny Baby Goat Wheelchair. "It just goes to show," Edgar's Mission founder Pam Ahern says in the video above, "when you really are determined, there really isn't any mountain high enough to stop you." Pam, you're laying it on pretty thick this morning, and I'm OK with that. [HuffPo]
London via Canada “doom soul” act Cold Specks will release an album called Neuroplasticity on Mute this August. The first single is “Absisto,” a foreboding minor-key track laced with atmospheric sounds of rock and orchestral varieties and prone to cacophonous outbursts. In a Canadian forest, director Ian Pons Jewell filmed a video that depicts a harrowing encounter and what appears to be some sort of mystic ceremony presided over by Cold Specks leader Al Spx. It’s appropriately freaky for an artist whose new album also features Michael Gira, yet the song flickers with an emotive warmth that reminds you Cold Specks also opened for Joni Mitchell at her 70th birthday party. Watch the video below.
Living fancy like Britney Spears isn't easy. You have to work for it.
Gal Volinez committed some serious time and effort to the task. He inserted himself into every scene of Spears' video for "Work Bitch," replacing the pop star with footage of himself. If this isn't how you spent your weekend, you wasted your Saturday.
It's a little on the odd side, to be sure. But you have to hand it to him: Every scene and dance move is perfectly replicated, then laid over Spears' original.Viral Videos, Britney Spears, Weird, Music, and Watercooler

Devotion, the 2012 album from the British soul singer Jessie Ware, was one of the finest, most composed, most expressive debuts in recent memory. And judging by her new single “Tough Love,” there’s every chance that she’ll be able to pull something like that off again. Zane Lowe debuted “Tough Love,” which was co-written and produced by BenZel, on BBC Radio 1 today, and it’s a lovely piece of synthetic blue-eyed R&B with the same sense of space and sweep that Ware seems to have deep in her bones. Listen to it below.
i like her a lot! the music is always good and this video is pretty cool but her album is like 32 songs long or something and that bugs me!!
HOW DARE THEY QUESTION HER GIFTS
this is cute but i guess this would only apply if you're WATCHING the game because obviously you need two hands and complete concentration at all times for mario kart
For decades, Mario Kart has tested friendships with ruthless competition and turtle shells. Despite being "just a game," the truth is that we've all felt a little exaggerated rage over losing first place to a frickin' banana peel.
Now that Mario Kart 8 has officially released on Wii U, it's time for another dose of borderline unhealthy competition
To alleviate some of the stress you felt as a kid in the '90s, we decided to spike the game — no, not like the blue Koopa shell, but with some (responsible) adult fun.
