According to the site, "*All prices were calculated using the US exchange rate on February 19th, 2016."

Amazon has plans to open 100 retail stores across the U.S., adding to it's current tally of 16 pop-up stores in malls across the Country.



According to Business Insider, "The miniature retail storefronts are a separate effort from the physical bookstore that Amazon opened in Seattle last year and are primarily designed to showcase and sell the company's hardware devices, particularly its Echo home speakers."



They sell the pop-ups as places where you can "Ask an Expert," test drive the products, and buy them on the spot without having to pay for Amazon shipping. Right now they only sell mostly Amazon-specific products like covers for Kindles, headphones, or the Amazon Echo, but brick-and-mortar stores are potential future options if the model proves to be a revenue-driver.

We recommend Amazon sell what it delivers best: disappointment. To that end, they could stock the following products, straight from their warehouses:

Haribo Sugar-Free Gummy Bears

Nicolas Cage Pillow Case



Get it here.

This Threatening Baby Onesie



Buy it here.

...and anything from this slightly-NSFW list.

In a move as bold as one Banksy would make himself, his former agent (and current enemy), Steve Lazarides, is holding a Banksy exhibition in a car park in Melbourne, Australia from Oct. 7 through Jan. 22, showcasing over 80 works from different private collections.

BANKSY. MELBOURNE. From 7th October - bit.ly/Banksy-Melbourne #Banksy #ArtOfBanksy #banksymelbourne

A video posted by The Art Of Banksy Melbourne (@banksymelbourne) on


Lazarides likes to do sh*t for shock value even though that's a juvenile way to do art. He and Banksy haven't spoken in ages, including at a recent Massive Attack concert in March when they kept their distance from each other.

They are mainly hyping the exhibit as rare, in that the works are privately-owned so it's unlikely to know when they will be shown publicly again, but the bottom line is that Banksy isn't going to benefit from this exhibit, as he explicitly states on his own website (pictured below) that he has no connection with Lazarides.



So if you want to support the artist then you should try to fund public art all over the place, so that people like Banksy can make a decent living.

Melbourne's Federation Square has been taken over by an 11-and-a-half metre (37.5-foot) baby named 'Ping Pong' made by Australian artist Felipe Reynolds:



The artist wanted the baby to "incorporate everybody in it," he said, "I wanted it to not be white, not be black, not be female, not be male - just be as inclusive as possible, so everybody can relate to it."

According to the Fed website:

"Interaction is key to experiencing this unique inflatable. Through a camera rigged to The Atrium screen (operating between 7am – 10pm) members of the public will find themselves part of the installation. Upon interaction the frame will be flipped horizontally, so it looks like the baby is sitting on the ground and the visitors become the human mobile. On weekdays from 10am – 4pm, during the school holidays, play with the baby via 4 giant rattles (1.5 meters) based beneath the inflatable."



Well, I think we can all relate to it being creepy, if nothing else.

It's starting to smell more like quarter-life for Nirvana's, "Smells Like Teen Spirit," which turns 25 later this week.

The song is the opening track, and lead single, from the band's second album, Nevermind (1991, DGC Records) and was written by Kurt Cobain, Krist Novoselic, and Dave Grohl.




The monumental video is considered one of the benchmarks of the grunge movement and propelled Nirvana to stratospheric success.





Tori Amon and many others have done covers in homage to the wicked tune:




We'd be privy to even more excellent covers of Nirvana's excellent tune-age if Courtney Love weren't such a total music tyrant.

So, in the meantime, hit up your local independent record store, get your own original copy of Nevermind, and pour one out for Kurt.



RIP, brother. Too soon.
