Pelican Fly is going to have an ill next couple of weeks. Nadus is set to drop Broke City later this month, June 9 sees the release of Lido's debut EP I Love You, which features this huge number. It's one of those tracks that's hard to pin down; I like just sticking with the term "future," although it comes correct with an awesome worked vocal, unforgettable movements, and nods to a grip of genres without even really trying. Maybe the song isn't "future." Maybe that's just how Lido operates. Pre-order I Love You right now.

His latest is a remix of Donnell Jones' "U Know What's Up" and it's another groovy freebie. This house jawn is sure to be a soulful summer anthem for those off the on the deep end of the pool... find me there and we'll be swimmin'.

A bike with a fiberglass frame isn’t the only way to ride in style. Dots Design Studio, a multidisciplinary Bangkok-based firm, makes handcrafted bicycles using timber parts. Their sleek PLYbike is composed of sandwiched wood veneer, and highlights a beautiful surface design thanks to the contrasting-colored wood. It was recently showcased at this year’s Milan Design Week.
In addition to its natural frame, PLYbike features curvy handlebars made from layered oak, teak, and walnut woods. Riders can choose between Bullhorn and Vintage style bars to complement their personal aesthetic. And because everything can’t be wood, copper-plating is used for the metal components of the structure. Its leather seat is made by Brooks, an English Company who’ve been outfitting bicycles for over 150 years. The unique combination of materials and thoughtful details make the PLYbike perfect for a trek around town.

Wait a minute. Is that a cat inside a table? Created by Ruan Hao for Hangzhou and Hong Kong-based architecture firm LYCS, CATable is a functional wood table that's designed for both people and cats! Like we've seen many times before, there's been a growing trend of transforming livable spaces for the comfort of your cat. While German design company Goldtatze took that to an extreme with this indoor playground and, while, interior designer Jillian Northrup and her husband architect Jeffrey McGrew made it their mission to create this amazing transportation tube, this table is something that's a bit more attainable.
With the proper-sized holes and long passageways, the table encourages cats to roam freely around your workspace. Their natural curiosity would be satisfied by exploring the unknown paths behind each hole. According to the architecture firm, the desk was created due to cat owners' shared experience: "Putting away the cat from your lap top was like a sentimental ritual of temporary farewell."
As Hao succinctly states, "It is a table for us, and a paradise for cats.“ CATable was exhibited at this year's Milan Design Week.
How sweet is this? Imagine looking down at your cup of hot chocolate and seeing this! Nagano, Japan-based marshmallow shop Yawahada is the creator of CafeCat, an adorable package of floating marshmallow cats! For 860 yen (that's about $8 US dollars), you get two cats and four cat paw prints, two in chocolate and two in vanilla flavor. Not only are they cute, they're supposedly delicious. The dissolving marshmallow cats can be put in hot soy milk, milk tea, coffee or hot chocolate.
Despite the overwhelming demand, international orders are currently not being taken. The company states on their website that they're working on a system right now. However, if you plan on visiting Japan sometime soon, you can buy these while you're there. Just remember to place your order at least three weeks in advance.

Started back in 2012, Not a Bully is a heartwarming project by photographer Douglas Sonders that aims to change the perception of rescue dogs that have been unfairly labeled as bullies. The term "bully breed" covers 14 popular dog breeds like Boxers, Rottweilers, and PIt Bulls. Essentially, they're dogs that people believe are inherently mean, aggressive or even violent. Shelters are crowded with loving bully breeds whose unfair stereotype severely limit their chances of ever finding a home.
Not a Bully hopes to change all that. Through these beautiful portraits and inspiring rescue stories, the project aims to educate the public on how all rescue pets deserve a loving home. The photographer himself adopted his own rescue dog, a Pit Bull, black Labrador mix, which inspired him to create the series. As Sonders states, "Emma had been saved from a Georgia shelter that would have put her down. She’d been circulating through the foster-care system for nine months, unable to find a permanent home. Potential adopters had been turned off by her 'scary' appearance and pit-bull background. But we connected instantly. Emma was meant to be my dog."
After he adopted Emma, Sonders, a commercial photographer who had shot ad campaigns for major companies and who had taken photos that appeared in The Washingtonian, Time, and Rolling Stone, felt compelled to create this personal project. "I love the chance to capture the true nature of my portrait subjects," he said. "I realized photography was the perfect tool to show people what Emma and other pit bulls are really like."

Paris-based designer Maud Vantours is a master at constructing incredible 3D sculptures and mesmerizing patterns out of paper. After carefully cutting out assorted shapes, she meticulously builds up layer upon layer, superimposing the papers to create intricate and colorful works of art. Her paper works range from geometric patterns to dizzying spirals to delicately crafted flowers. With amazing texture, elaborate detail, and vibrant colors, each piece is a joy to look at.
Although Vantours graduated from the Parisian school Duperré with a specialization in textiles and design, her favorite medium is paper because the works can "transcend a simple material and transform it into a work of art." She says, "I love to create original graphics with multicolored and dreamlike landscapes."
