Momentage: A Community for the New Creatives

Tuesday 01.28.2014 , Posted by

When we all saw the awesome new idea of Instagram hitting the scene like it did a few years ago, it has always been hard to imagine someone creating something to rival it. While some have ripped off the idea, designed it somewhat differently, and slapped a new name on it, feeling like they’ve added to the conversation, in reality, they may be missing the point. They’re just repeating the person who spoke before them. This is not the case with San Francisco based startup Momentage. Momentage is a community for the new creatives. [Read more...]

“If something isn’t on the internet, it didn’t happen.” At least that’s what a lot of people seem to think in our modern age, when every birthday party, natural disaster or new creative pursuit has to show up on Facebook or Instagram. But what if the major historical events of the past happened today with our current social media obsession? What if DaVinci had posted instagram teasers showing his nearly completed Mona Lisa? What if someone posted a photo of the Trojan horse before its secret contents were revealed? That’s what MTV designers Gusto NYC and Gavin Alaoen set out to do on their hilarious new blog, Histagrams. [Read more...]

We Love Friday!- Free Falling: An Homage to Bungee Jumping

Friday 09.13.2013 , Posted by


The first modern bungee jump with elastic materials was carried out by Oxford University students dressed in top hats and tails at the Clifton Suspension Bridge in Bristol as an April Fool’s Day prank in 1979. They were members of the university’s “Dangerous Sports Club” and were arrested immediately after they resurged from the plunge. Today the sport has become very popular all over the world and with only a 1 in 500,000 chance of death, it is one of the least dangerous of the extreme sports. According to the Guinness Book of Records, the highest commercial bungee jump is off the Macau Tower(764ft) in China where jumpers experience four to five seconds of free fall at up to 125mph. If jumping off of a bridge or typical run of the mill bungee jumping isn’t adventurous enough for you and you can spare $10,000, you can jump off a helicopter into the mouth of an active Andean volcano in Pucon, Chile! (Telegraph) To celebrate the bravery of those entrusting their lives to a giant rubber band, we searched Instagram for this awesome collection of bungee pics! [Read more...]
