Someone put a real engine in a Barbie car and it's glorious - 6時間前  Mashable

Barbie's toy cars were pretty cool for kids, but the mini cars aren't that much fun. After all, they can only go a whopping 2.5 miles per hour, according to their product specs. But one group of car enthusiasts took the toy cars to a whole new level. Grind Hard Plumbing Co, a YouTube channel for building "crazy contraptions and cars" customized a bright pink Barbie Ford Mustang with a 240cc engine from a dirt bike. The result: an incredibly fast, very dangerous toy. In the video — which includes some gorgeous shots of a lake at sunset — one of the car's creators, Ethan, nearly spin...more

'The Ensemble' is an intimate debut novel about love of all kinds - 9時間前  Mashable

The Ensemble is more than just a story about a professional string quartet.  Sure, it tails four young musicians that make up the Van Ness Quartet — the formidable Jana on first violin, sweet Brit on second violin, the prodigy Henry on viola, and brooding Daniel on cello — over the course of almost 20 years, but dig into its pages and you'll realize that the novel is also a sublime character study and complicated unraveling (and rebuilding) of the lives of these musicians during their formative young adult years.  SEE ALSO: Why 'Fahrenheit 451' does not age well at a...more
