How I vacation 
Everyone needs a vacation every once in a while. It's healthy and you should take one if you haven't this year. Beach? Sure. Europe? Go for it. Hell, pitch a tent in your own backyard and don't talk to anyone for a weekend if that's all you can manage. But a vacation isn't a vacation unless you really really get away from the minutiae of your everyday existence. Question is, how do you do that without also stripping out the conveniences of techno...

Scouting NY is an awesome blog and we've got the movie and TV location scout behind it here answering your questions.

Do you have any idea what happened with the filming location of Ghostbusters or Annie Hall? Nope! But Nick Carr, the location sleuth behind Scouting NY does.

I actually think the bow tie cans are kinda wack. 
You'd know a can of Budweiser anywhere. Like many other major brands, whether it's Coca-Cola, M&Ms, or BMW, Bud's red and white packaging is instantly recognizable. It's familiar, it's safe, and it's universally likeable. But recently Budweiser, along with several other ubiquitous beer makers including Miller Lite, Heineken, and Sam Adams, have made major changes to their iconic packaging. Here's why.

The Museum of Natural History gave us a look inside the space where it stores all of its dinosaur bones. 
The most interesting room in the American Museum of Natural History is one you'll never see. Its inhabitants are millions of years old, its proprietors among the brightest in their field. This is the big bone room, home to what is arguably the largest and most important collection of mammal bones in the world. And we got a first-hand look.

My life's work.
Rappers have had a love affair with technology that started long before Biggie Smalls was name-checking Super Nintendo and Sega Genesis. And their rhymes cover everything from the CEOs to mobile platforms. Here, we present you with the best tech references in rap:

Does not disappoint. Love the partnership with Pharrell.  Looking forward to some pumped up remixes of the album.
