Designed by Austrian architect Lukas Galehr for the recently-opened ‘Disco Volante’ pizzeria in Vienna, this fully-functional pizza oven has been designed to look like a gigantic reflective disco ball. And yes, it even rotates. ViaMadame Mohr:
According to the clients wish the restaurant should not only carry the atmosphere of a southern Italian pizzeria but also transport the lightness of the “Italo-Disco” era of the 1970s and 80s.
The heart of every pizzeria is the wood fired oven which in this case is a giant disco ball with a rotating mechanism. After the dough is run out the Pizzaioli start the engine and the oven begins to slowly turn with about 1 revolution per minute.

Creative Photographer Awards On Xanaland For November: Ted Gonzales....Winning!



He takes pride in his sobriety, his work, his daughter, and his love for Starbucks coffee, and he's one hell of a photographer! 

In fact, I'm thinking of contacting Starbucks myself, because I lost count at like 200 Starbucks related photographs and all very cool and creative. 
One thing I always notice about Ted's photographs is that he seems to be in a great mood-even while he's at work...actually especially while he's at work! 
He's been one of my best friends on social media for a couple of years now, and I always look forward to his photographs. He has a unique style and what can I say, that handsome face and that adorable mohawk just cant take a bad photo! Just look at that sweet mug, he is adorable!


He also has a special place in his heart for The Misfits, and Kiss, and of course his daughter who he takes great photos of and with regularly, she may not realize it now, today we are all photographers, and with technology kids take it for granite that camera phones are just the norm, well most of us ' adults ' have only a handful of cool photos of us with our parents in comparison. She will surely one day look back at his immense collection of photographs and be very grateful. I know I would be!

Xanaland Live Stream Schedule for November 2013



What's nice about having a drunk monkey is you get to blame everything on him. What's nice about having a sober monkey, is you can plan events and actually stick to a schedule!
