In Cosmic Communist Constructions Photographed ($41), the photographer esteemed Frederic Chaubin reveals ninety buildings located in fourteen former Soviet Republics that display what could be considered as the 4th age of Soviet architecture. These buildings reveal an unexpected rejuvenation of imagination, an unknown and unexpected burgeoning that took place in the two decades between 1970 and 1990. As opposed to the 1920's and 1930's there was no main trend or school for thought here. They represent the chaotic impulses of the architects that were brought about country collapsing through decay and their diversity effectively announced the end of the almighty Soviet Union.

Too many movies sugar coat things and make it look unrealistic. Drugstore Cowboy ($8) is not one of those movies. Directed by Gus Von Sant and starring Matt Dillon, Kelly Lynch, and James LeGros, this movie is a realistic road film about a drug addict's life, his 'family', and the group's inevitable downward spiral into crime. Men who prefer the more realistic movies will appreciate the brilliance of this movie because it doesn't gloss over anything or rely on unrealistic expectations on the part of the audience. This is something that sets it apart from other movies of this genre and helps it continue to be relevant today.
We all love our Bluetooth speakers. It's difficult to beat the convenience. The ability to fire up your favorite device, hit play, and instantly have music playing, whether you're out by the pool or cooking dinner, is a definite bonus.The biggest issue has to do with sound quality. The miniature size of some of these units dictates their frequency response and their ability not to sound like the vocals are coming from a tin can.Filling this void is the Fluance Fi70 High Fidelity Bluetooth speaker ($500). The Fluence feature six drivers; dual 8 inch Polymer high excursion woofers, 5-inch woven glass fiber composite midrange drivers, and 1-inch silk soft dome Neodymium Ferrofluid cooled tweeters.This entire setup is driven via a 280 watt (2x 140 watt) amplifier and delivers a respectable frequency response of 30Hz-20KHz. You don't get the earth pounding bass of a standalone sub that can reach 20Hz, but 30Hz is definitely in the ballpark.Apart from the systems aptX Bluetooth streaming capabilities, it features an integrated equalizer, so you can adjust bass and treble, an optical input, auxiliary input, touch controls, a digital AM/FM radio, LED display, and a USB port to charge your portable devices.Fluance says the Fi70 can replace any bulky sound system in your house and fill any room with amazing audiophile quality sound.
