Booooooom asks Monstrum

Future of the City

“How can we provide opportunities for kids to make real-life discoveries on their own instead of Googling and Youtubing everything?”

This is the question I posed recently to @smarturbanstage, an online project in which people question the quality of life in their own cities around the world. They found a really cool answer to my question in the form of Monstrum, playground builders from Copenhagen. You can read the article here.

Director Jordan Peele’s Alternate Ending to “Get Out” (Leaked Video Clip)

Spoiler Alert: Do not click below if you haven’t seen “Get Out” yet! I wasn’t completely mind-blown by this movie but I really enjoyed it and I’m excited to see what director Jordan Peele makes next (apparently his next “social thriller” is slated for 2019).

Watch the full clip below.
