Coeur de Pirates is a well-known French band who, in the opinion of UrbanLandfill, did a fantastic job of covering The Weeknd’s “Wicked Games” as a haunting melody.

Here at UrbanLandfill, we have high standards for our denim.
So we were excited to see our friends HYPEBEAST releasing the images for Nudie Jeans’ S/S 2013 Lookbook.
Nudie Jeans is a Swedish company who works primarily in denim for men, although their loyal fan base includes women (such as here, at UrbanLandfill). Aside from having high standards in the cut, fit, and style of denim, Nudie Jeans also has reached their goal of working in organic denim ahead of schedule.

This is one remake that looks like it could live up to the hype.
The Pirate Bay, originally founded in 2003 as a search engine, grew into a leading go-to website for illegal file sharing post-Napster. The Pirate Bay founders ultimately were placed on trial in Sweden, where they received short-term prison sentences, the blocking of The Pirate Bay ISP around the world, and a fine of more than 3.5 million USD. Now, filmmaker Simon Klose takes a look at the history and founders of The Pirate Bay in this documentary, due to be released online for free in conjunction with a major film festival (TBD).
It’s an odd idea, it seems, to have resolutions once a year. One would think you’d do it continuously, creating and improving upon yourself as time goes on. Here in America it seems that resolutions come only after you’ve had a hard night of drinking and are feeling the hangover from hell.
But resolutions, in whatever situation they come about, are a necessary thing. They give you a goal, present a challenge, and help you to realise what you want, and what you don’t.
So. Here goes.
URBAN LANDFILL’s New Year Resolutions:
1. Write at least three posts a week. (We all knew this was coming, didn’t we? Blogging is most often thrown aside when it’s not the main source of income. Tragic. But it is the truth. But when it’s something you are passionate about, you make twice the effort.)
2. Build a wardrobe based on the principals of sustainable design.
3. Enjoy – and report on – the different aspects of environmental and sustainable design that companies, brands, and people incorporate into their work.
A small list, but an important one.
UrbanLandfill loves Tron Lightcycle Street Legal. A street legal version of the Tron Lightcycle. A friend of ours commented that if it is electric, shouldn’t it have a cool sound? What do you think?
