Colorado-based apparel and accessory experts Topo Designs hit the jackpot the day they decided to manufacture a rucksack which was just as suited to trekking through the Alaskan Mountains as it was commuting through New York City.
Described by those responsible for its creation as being made “not too big [but] not too small, and not too fancy [but] not too simple” these are the slightly ambiguous, though undeniably handy, multi-purpose functions of the Rover Pack, which deem it worthy of its fairy tale-inspired nickname.
Durable, lightweight and water-resistant, this rucksack invites adventure with its every purpose, exhibiting room for both your laptops or gadgets, as well as your water bottles or extra outdoor gear.
Somewhere on the southern tip of the Sinai Peninsula in Egypt, nestled at the foot of a desert mountain range, sits a peculiar sight that is almost completely out of place: hundreds of seats for an outdoor movie theater. Estonian photographer Kaupo Kikkas recently visited the desolate location and brought back these amazing shots of a decaying dream. He shares via his blog that the theater was built not too long ago by a man from France with considerable means. Tons of old seats and a generator were hauled in from Cairo, not to mention a giant screen that looked like the sail of a ship.
Everything was set for opening night, with one small problem. Kikkas says the locals weren’t particularly keen on the whole idea and decided to discreetly sabotage the generator. A single movie was never screened. So now it sits in the middle of a desert, a random movie theater in the middle of nowhere. You can still see it on Google Maps.
Damn, our bands have put out some pretty videos.

How to be specific and generic altogether? Shelving systems have a tendency to achieve one concern but never both. We decided to dimension shelving units based on the generic measurements of things to store and display while allowing for them to be combined according to specific needs and desires… the result can be at times a random stack of boxes or a coordinated grid of efficient storage… or both!
