If you thought the 87th Academy Awards were just OK, consider Bill Smith’s version of Hollywood’s biggest night.

Not everyone has the winter blues this season. Just ask Sintha, the gorgeous dog featured in the ski video you’re about to enjoy. Her human, Adrian Schaffner, recently posted a video of Sintha taking in the sights, sounds and smells of the slopes of the Swiss Alps. Let’s just say, winter, you’ve never looked… More »
