The opposite of cutting back: In Las Vegas, high-rollers can pay $250,000 to have the Fountains at Bellagio play a song of their choice. (via The Morning News) Pictured: 100 “landmark” cameras. (via Swiss Miss) And where have you seen that before? Twin Movies, a collection of similar movies released by different studios around the same time. (via Coudal)
