I always wanted to go base jumping or skydiving but of course nobody wants to do it with me. Chumps! All this video did was make me want to do it REALLY bad now.
There are thousands of people that are exploring some of the most beautiful landscapes in the world. This chapter we will take you to Norway, Switzerland and France where people are jumping cliffs as high as 6,000 feet.
Experience Zero Gravity will hopefully provide you with the feeling and the emotion that we feel when we think about the experience of Base Jumping in the most scenic locations of the world.
We hope you can see this world from our eyes.
Watch another video after the jump.

A few days late I know, but its still good to see a person of color do their thang in the harsh world of fashion. CHEERS!
After a period of uncertainty, we have the official news: Olivier Rousteing, a French designer who grew up in Bordeaux, is Balmain’s new Creative Director.
Christophe Decarnin left the fashion house following some health problems that stopped him attending the 2011-12 show. The firm has just formalised the role of the new designer, who will oversee both menswear and the women’s collection.
The designer has been a member of the Balmain team since 2009. He previously worked at Roberto Cavalli, designing the men’s and women’s ready-to-wear lines for the Florence-based firm.

Fashion icon Karl Lagerfeld and Colette team up for a rock-n’-roll themed pop-up shop. Why can’t they have a Colette in NYC!? The store is located at 336-340 Rue Saint-Honoré in Paris. Featured will be graffiti-covered Chanel bags, helmets and CDs and current-season Chanel merchandise. They’re going to have a nail bar, cupcake stand and a collectible doll. This store is like Homeland Security for women, no men allowed. Ladies overseas enjoy all the potential pampering this store has to offer.
