Japanese Twitter Falls In Meme Love With Perfectly Timed Photo Of One-Punch Shiba Inu

Anything posted on the internet has potential to become a meme, but there is something about strangely simultaneously derpy and stoic nature of shiba inu that seems to give them a head start over everything else. That might best be on display with an impeccably timed photo posted by Japanese Twitter user @Ninjamaaaaaan that some are calling “One-Punch Shiba Inu.” h/t: grapee ブォン pic.

Musuem for the UNESCO heritage Pearling Path in Bahrain by Valerio Olgiati

A coloured concrete canopy supported by large columns forms this gateway designed by Swiss architect Valerio Olgiati for the Pearling Path, a UNESCO World Heritage Site in Bahrain.

Valerio Olgiati designed to structure to mark the start of the Pearling Path, a 2.2 mile trail situated close to the historic market buildings on Muharraq Island. It connects oyster beds and a series of buildings that were significant to Bahrain’s historic pearling industry.

Rosie Lowe on ‘vodka in the park’, sex therapy and neo-soul

The musician probes big questions of love and faith on her new album

Walking into Rosie Lowe’s south London flat – a converted workshop, no less – is like stepping into a Kevin McCloud fantasy. On the hallway ceiling hangs a pulley clothes dryer Lowe whittled, while the second bedroom, complete with hidden pull-out bed, wasn’t part of the original structure – Lowe erected the partition wall herself, the space doubling up as an office for her director partner, Jake. The living room, meanwhile, houses a piano (she gives lessons in her spare time) and an assortment of mismatched furniture heaving under the weight of various house plants. Next to an artfully battered brown leather sofa, a clump of sage burns, I assume to replicate the heady atmosphere that permeates Lowe’s music: an intoxicating mix of jazz, soul and downtempo R&B that, on her second album YU, wraps itself round lyrics exploring love, religion and fidelity. “Sorry, that’s to mask the bin smell,” Lowe laughs, the spell broken. “I put them out just before you arrived.” Continue reading

Nipsey Hussle’s Murderer’s Driver Seen In Footage Flooring It From Scene: Report

The surveillance video footage that captured the moment Nipsey Hussle was shot and killed has circulated throughout the internet, yet TMZ reports that there are tapes authorities have in their possession that have not been made available to the public. What is known is that Eric Holder, the suspect in the case, approached Nipsey, shot him multiple times at point blank range, and then ran off to a nearby alley where he jumped into an awaiting car driven by a woman.

Throughout the investigation, there have been reports that the driver of the getaway car has been cooperative with police, alleging that she had no idea that anyone was going to get hurt, let alone killed. The driver’s identity has yet to be acknowledged publicly by police, although internet sleuths have tracked down and identified who they believe she is. She has not been arrested or charged in connection with Nipsey’s murder. Continue reading
