the wild things

Posted on | March 26, 2009 | No Comments

awesome! spike jonze turned the alltime bestseller childrens book “where the wild things are”, originally written and illustrated by maurice sendak, into a movie that’s supposed to come out this year.

who as a child didn’t love the book where a young boy is sent to his room without supper after he misbehaved. once in the room he enters an imaginary forest with monsters…

it’s going to be interesting to see how the director of ”being john malkovich” and “jackass: the movie” interprets this tale. quite a jump but jonze is a fantastic director.

earth hour

Posted on | March 25, 2009 | No Comments

tunr off your lights at home for an hour and support the earth hour.

“THIS YEAR, EARTH HOUR HAS BEEN TRANSFORMED INTO THE WORLD’S FIRST GLOBAL ELECTION, between Earth and global warming. For the first time in history, people of all ages, nationalities, race and background have the opportunity to use their light switch as their vote – Switching off your lights is a vote for Earth, or leaving them on is a vote for global warming. WWF are urging the world to VOTE EARTH and reach the target of 1 billion votes, which will be presented to world leaders at the Global Climate Change Conference in Copenhagen 2009. This meeting will determine official government policies to take action against global warming, which will replace the Kyoto Protocol. It is the chance for the people of the world to make their voice heard.
EARTH HOUR BEGAN IN SYDNEY IN 2007, when 2.2 million homes and businesses switched off their lights for one hour. In 2008 the message had grown into a global sustainability movement, with 50 million people switching off their lights. Global landmarks such as the Golden Gate Bridge in San Francisco, Rome’s Colosseum, the Sydney Opera House and the Coca Cola billboard in Times Square all stood in darkness.

IN 2009, EARTH HOUR IS BEING TAKEN TO THE NEXT LEVEL, with the goal of 1 billion people switching off their lights as part of a global vote. Unlike any election in history, it is not about what country you’re from, but instead, what planet you’re from. VOTE EARTH is a global call to action for every individual, every business, and every community. A call to stand up and take control over the future of our planet. Over 74 countries and territories have pledged their support to VOTE EARTH during Earth Hour 2009, and this number is growing everyday.”

design a hoodie

Posted on | March 25, 2009 | No Comments is a fun and extremely smart marketing webpage done by the fashion label champion (actually nightagency did it but …). they basically created a website that allows you to design one or several hoodies you can enter into a hoodie contest. having that said you can only enter if you register and all of sudden they have your personal data and thousands of hoodie designs they don’t need to pay some fashion designer for.

and as the page itself states, there are 157277 hoodie designs so far. not bad guys. it’s a good page though and actually fun to throw a few patterns on the hoodie.

try here.



a photo a day

Posted on | March 25, 2009 | No Comments

the fwa created a webpage called where they highlight one amazing photo (in some cases it seems like a very subjective decision to say the least but some are really good and fun) a day.

not only can you watch them on your laptop but also download a free iphone application via itunes. and that’s nice, because it does help to get through some bowring meetings. or just take a minute off, look for the right shot and dream away for a few.

check it out.


stay up (viagra)

Posted on | March 19, 2009 | No Comments

another nice video featuring kanye west – “stay up (viagra)” from his album “the death of adam”. think director jason goldwatch did a pretty good job and i like kanye’s fable for ironic and satiric video interpretations like “can’t tell me nothing” which i loved. it’s entertainment baby.

“pins and threads” by debbie smyth

Posted on | March 17, 2009 | No Comments

like this a lot! it is art that’s not only thoughtful but also artful and artistic in a literal sense. on a first glimpse just black and white, 2d graphical that turns with the second look into a delicate and complex 3d installation. debbie smyth was selected as one of the most promising graduates of 2008 for the dezeen talent zone. her installation pins & threads uses, as the title suggests, sewing pins and black thread to draw a series of electricity pylons across several canvas panels.

the technique transforms ordinary structures — often thought of as ugly blots on the landscape — into beautifully minimal graphic drawings, which are at once 2D and 3D, anchored to their panels but also floating in space.

debbie smyth graduated from the west wales school of arts in 2008 and describes herself as a constructed textile artist. her work employs “an array of mechanisms, she folds, collapses, inflates and interlocks her materials to transform two-dimensional lines and planes into three-dimensional shapes and space.”

the brick testament – lego bible, online

Posted on | March 17, 2009 | No Comments

i don’t really know what to say but this is so insane that you have to take a look at it. reverend brendan powell smith goes nuts with lego to illustrate stories from the bible. he builds the sets, shoots them, created a website and published a book with over 300 stories. this is wild, take a look.

forgotten beauty, moments of the past

Posted on | March 17, 2009 | No Comments

it is a shame how the city of detroit has been run down and ruined. yves marchand and romain meffre captured the forgotten beauty of a once powerful and vibrant city.

looking at the photos you don’t know what to feel. there is something absolutely fascinating in those dilapidated structures. it makes you dream, you start thinking about the times when these places were filled with life. where are the people who once stood in the hallways, worked in those offices, lived in those houses and what are their memories? how was the very last moment before the doors were shut and locked.

the city had at it’s peak in the 50s a population of roughly 2 million. 50 years later it’s down to about 750 thousand – declining, with about 2000 people leaving the city area per month.

imagine one phone number – for life. google voice

Posted on | March 13, 2009 | No Comments

this sounds to good to be true and work well. “In one of Google’s rather low-key acquisitions, they purchased a phone start-up called GrandCentral (founded in 2006) for about $50 million in cash mid 2007, GrandCentral offered a seriously valuable product; “one phone number for all your phones, for life“. Can you imagine how many contacts you loose changing jobs, switching carriers, houses, apartments, states? Well Google Voice is the answer, you’ll get a single phone number for life, that rings or texts any phone you own, with a single voicemail box… and best if all, it’s free!

So why would you use it? Simple, you’ll only ever give out one number, administer it online, and send calls or texts to different devices depending on who or when people are trying to contact you! Ok, ok, there are problems too, like how do I get my contacts to use the new number and throw out the old? Well, I’m sure there will be one of Googles famous FAQ’s for that!

But if it’s free, what’s in it for Google? Well if it takes off, they will effectively control millions of phone numbers, that (with the right strategy) could be monetised a multitude of ways! So get ready, go check out the Google Voice website here. Thanks to TechCrunch for posting a great article.” seen on
