L.A. to Big Sur: A Brief Guide to the Greatest Roadtrip in America

Getting a tattoo is a big decision. It involves lots of forethought, lots of research, and lots of trust in your chosen artist. But you don't have to be in the market for an original painting to hit up a gallery exhibit, nor do you have to actually be planning a tattoo of your own to appreciate the work of quality tattoo artists.

Mesmerizing Photos of Italy's Beaches Captured From Above

If you get a borderline-peverse kick out of meticulously organized things—suitcases, fridges, outfits—you're not alone. There are entire Instagram accounts and Tumblr blogs dedicated to creating order in this confusing, unpredictable world we live in. Bernhard Lange's aerial photographs of Italy's summer resort beaches also look purposefully arranged into their mesmerizing rows of vivid color. However there's nothing contrived about the layouts. We've just never seen them from this angle. To get the shots, Lange hired a plane to circle the beaches between Ravenna and Rimini.

The Palace of Versailles Will Soon Be a Hotel

There are many fantasies you can concoct involving the Palace of Versailles. Granted access, you could channel Louis XIV, the Sun King, and pretend to be the longest-ruling monarch in European history. Or you could fast-forward a few hundred years and inhabit the guise of modern-day royalty as you traipse around like Kanye and Kim did on their wedding day. The morbid among you can even play Marie Antoinette, anxiously pacing the grounds before your theoretical beheading. Regardless of how you'd bide your time in those palatial walls, the reality of it is coming closer to fruition now that see more

Christian Bale Has Become the Dude From The Big Lebowski

Some guys bring their A game when they head to the airport—others, not so much. Christian Bale seems to be part of the latter category from the look of his recent appearance at LAX, which is equal parts hobo, hippie burnout, and The Big Lebowski. Seems that Bale takes a more DGAF attitude when he flies the friendly skies, which is fine and his prerogative, after all. Still, the Jesus locks + wraparound shades + full bushy beard + flip-flops is a lot of look. The Welsh actor is not only taking style cues from the infamous Dude, it see more
