Dave Grohl gives the exhibit's interactive elements a whirl
With their operatic anthems, genre-bending sound and Freddie Mercury's incomparable brand of rock showmanship, Queen remains one of the most beloved, stadium-rousing bands in history. Witness what happens the moment "Bohemian Rhapsody" is cued at any rowdy party—likely a reenactment of that famed Wayne's World scene, headbanging and all.
Jaunted Embedded Travel Guides: London 2007
We are constantly searching for the most timely and useful travel information on locations around the world. We have always found that boots on the ground is a great way to sift through the marketing clutter and bring you the travel tips, information, and opinions you crave. However, now it is time to kick it up a notch. First, we are searching the world for folks who can take you on a field trip of their "backyard." When we find these folks, we then embed them into their local travel scene and ask them to be our eyes and ears out in the field.
We are expecting the same sort of grainy video, choppy sentences, and snapshot photos that you are use to seeing from embeds. The rub is, at the end of the day we should be left with a backyard travel guidebook like no other.
Our first embed is Benji Lanyado of London, UK. He is a budget travel columnist for the Guardian Newspaper in the UK. He also is the fearless leader of Youngin Europe, so expect his guide to skew young, but not that young, we intend to keep this thing legal. He lives in London and enjoys ranting about football.
Now that you have all the particulars, sit back and enjoy the trip.
London :: Nightlife
London's hippest hotspot, or a hive of wankers? You decide.
Brick Lane; London's Janus-faced temptress. Either the coolest place in London, or the spiritual home of the city's boundless legions of Nathan Barleys. Or maybe both.
Quick backstory. Brick Lane has followed the age-old hipster gentrification process: poor working class area, low rents, immigrants move in (Bangladeshis in this case), so do the gifted-but-broke arterati, gets cool. Also see: Kreuzberg in Berlin, Lavapiés in Madrid, Norrebro in Copenhagen. The result is a heady concoction of trendies, curries, electronica, punks, tramps, yadda, yadda. Get it?
