A quick music note....

mariah carey wastes her voice on R&B crap when she clearly doesn't fit that style in her vibe or her voice... it's like Charlotte Church wasting her operatic voice that would be perfect for trance on crappy folk-pop trash. "Brave new world" from Jurgen featuring her is amazing and she should have gone down that path and she would be right up there with Emma Hewitt or Kirsty Hawkshaw and been more famous and would have had excellent industry staying power.... folk-pop has the lowest staying power since you need to tie yourself up in imagery, lyrics, and lots of fan demands and stuff like that.... and be able to have a complete rebirth on every album as well as have commercial overhaul, expense, and heavy marketing... fans will hate you for re-using any of it so it has to be fresh, and be more quirky and more deep then the last album... true EDM artists (not shit like gaga, skirllex,etc) don't need that to be successful. Hell some of them have no imagery....

Slinky Building!

THE ARK is a hotel by Russian design firm Remistudio and is meant to be self-sufficient. The transparent foil roof would allow light to reach plants inside, and the waste produced in the building would be converted into fuel. The cupola is meant to be energy-efficient, and its shell basement with cables and arches is designed to distribute weight evenly to make it earthquake- and flood-resistant.
