These bamboo taxis are so cool! They were commissioned by the mayor of Tabontabon, a town of about 10,000 people in Leyte Province, Philippines. The main method of transportation there is motorcycles, with sometimes up to 6 people crowding onto one bike. Though this method of travel is cheap, it is very dangerous, and not very environmentally friendly either! The new bamboo taxis are made 90% of bamboo, are as cheap as motorcycles, and run completely on bio-diesel. One gallon can make the cars run for 8 hours! Such a cool idea!

These beautiful images of waves are by Japanese photographer Syoin Kajii. Syoin is a Buddhist monk residing at a seaside temple on Sado Island, where he works on his photography as well. His photos from this gorgeous set were recently featured in Foam Photography Magazine. I would love to get lost in any of them!

I don’t know if any of you like music by M83, but you should! They have a really cool electronic and sort of ambient sound.
If you are in New York City tonight and looking for something cool to do, M83 is going to be playing at the World Financial Center Plaza at 7pm, and the word is that it’s free! Awesome!
For now, check out the amazing music video for M83′s song We Own The Sky. I’ve been grooving on it all morning…
