Beastie-Boys-by-Spike-Jonze

If you’re a fan of the legendary Beastie Boys, this book by Academy Award-winning film director and photographer Spike Jonze is a must because it captures the start, rise, and heyday of Michael “Mike D” Diamond Adam “Ad-Rock” Horovitz, and Adam “MCA” Yauch who passed away in 2012. The bond between Jonze and the Beastie Boys was forged in 1993 and has lasted throughout both of their burgeoning careers that have spanned a quarter of a century. The book includes numerous personal photos of the trio from Jonze’s own collection, as well as new writing by the remaining members. Candid real-life shots of the Beastie Boys directly from the the lens of Spike Jonze are what make the book special, with the undercurrent of a friendship that’s more than just skin deep. You can pre-order the book now for release on March 17th.

Moon-Puzzle-IF2

We pride ourselves on being able to tackle problems and jigsaw puzzles like everyone else–from the edge pieces in. That’s a little more difficult when it comes to thousand piece adventures like the Moon puzzle you see here. In is out, out is in, and there’s an entire quadrant of almost fully gray pieces that depict the lunar surface, but all of that just adds to the productive difficulty you’ll experience when you’re assembling this jigsaw version of modern history. As they tell it, “July 16, 2019 marked the 50 year anniversary of the Apollo 11 launch – the historic mission to the Moon where Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin became the first of humankind to set foot on the Moon. Our Moon puzzle celebrates this momentous achievement and will challenge and delight puzzle solvers everywhere.”
