Oh, I'm sorry, did you say something? I can't hear you! Ha! You think I can hear you, but I can't. La la la la, I can't hear you! You should see your face! You look so mad. I bet you're cursing a blue streak. But I'll never know, because I can't hear you! La la la la! Ok, ok, ok. Whew, that was too much fun. Ok, sorry. Go ahead, I'm listening now....

Peep These Insane Macau Construction Photos

Aerial photographer @linolens (Instagram | Twitter | Web) has been posting some truly phenomenal photos of the current crop of construction projects rising in Cotai, Macau. Wynn Palace, MGM Cotai, Macao Studio City, SJM Lisboa Palace, Galaxy Macau and The Parisian are all represented with multiple photos, some a few weeks old and others from late last year before parcels adjacent to the Macau International Airport were deemed to be no-fly-zones. Three cheers to the ultimate, wireless selfie stick. Big thanks to @linolens for taking and sharing his...

ASS Watch: The Aria Sky Suites Expands To The Pool

The Aria Sky Suites (bka 'the A.S.S.') has expanded to the pool with "Sky Pool". They created some artwork specifically for this development. Yes please. How much do you think these branded water bottles will set you back at the new SkyPoo. In my house we call a cloud of flatulent gas an "air poo." "Honey, just a warning that the dog just air pooped in the den." I enjoy finding faux-dignified ways of not being overtly 11 years old. Sometimes. The Sky Poo! website has no content...

The Pool at Resorts World Las Vegas

When Resorts World Las Vegas was announced in March 2013, VT observed: Water is a very important part of this property. There are many fountains and low level reflecting pools within the pagoda village (marked with green arrows.) Surrounding the water park at the base of the hotel towers are an assortment of micropools (trend alert) each of which might have a specific offering: booze, oontz, kids, boobs, laps, games, seniors, night swim, etcetera. In the two years since Genting purchased the former Echelon parcel, architects Steelman...

While reporting about Tuesday's groundbreaking of Resorts World Las Vegas, the venerable Los Angeles Times (my hometown newspaper!) had the following to say: For those with TLDR syndrome: Malaysia-based Genting Group is taking a gamble on Las Vegas by breaking ground on Tuesday on the first new resort to open on the Strip since Aria and CityCenter debuted in 2009. Oooooooopsi! Big thanks to Mac78130 for the tip. ...

Resorts World Breaks Ground, Unleashes New Renderings

Resorts World held a public groundbreaking today and invited the local media types. Not us. They also unleashed a ton of promotional material in the form of renderings and a video.

The lighting scheme that runs up the side of...
