After visiting “Savage Beauty” exhibition of Alexander McQueen’s work at Victoria and Albert I’ve been reflecting over the dress.

It appeared in the last collection of McQueen (left unfinished at the time of his death). The dress features a mashup between elements of Hieronymus Bosch paintings: The Temptation of St. Anthony and The Garden of Earthly Delights.

Being a fan of both McQueen’s and Bosch art, I was absolutely excited to see it with my own eyes. And it got me thinking if anyone else was using Bosch paintings in clothing prints and if maybe I could get some (wearing Basquiat sweatpants to the gym makes you wonder.)

Turns out, there’re quite a few options. The trend has been set, and Bosch prints are being used in by fashion designers and even some mass-market brands.

And finally, I found this store (Yizzam) with Bosch prints on clothes (t-shirts, sweatshirts, tank tops etc.)

Pure Gym

Best gym ever

Just finished my first workout at the gym. And I want to write a post about it!

Why, I just didn’t expect a gym to be so appealing. With this many enjoyable things and details. For the record, I’m not a gym rat, though I’ve been to ~10 gyms (also in different countries) and those gym experiences were more or less similar — until this time. Take out your notebooks, gym owners.

In this post I’m going to review a board game called Sky Traders.

It was released in 2012 by Fantasy Flight Games. It’s a fairly simple game of commerce and intrigue for 2-5 players, age 14+, with remarkable looks and theme. However the initial setup and game mechanics might seem challenging for the newcomers.

He stars as a fictionalized version of himself – a comedian and newly divorced father raising his two daughters in New York City.

Zombies, Run! 2

Running + Zombies = Awesome

There’s one awesome geek app I was eager to write about for some time now. It’s about running – and zombies. I’ve been running for a while now with Runkeeper, and noticed that there’s another running app called “Zombies, Run!” which can be linked to it, posting the run logs and sharing with friends. So, I decided to give it a try ($3.99 for iOS/Android).
