Talk about genius

I discovered a BBC tv show today titled "Design for Life." It's the same setup as Project Runway or Design Star, only it's headed by world-renown, insanely proflific (and often criticized) designer Phillipe Starck. I definitely recommend heading over to his webpage and checking out all of his designs.

Below is the first episode of "Design for Life." Episodes are about an hour long, but just hearing Starck's philosophies, witnessing the egos, and watching those poor design students run around like chickens with their heads cut off entertains me to no end. I think it's brilliant, and it had me researching design schools in the UK. Maybe a future in product design has begun to read its head, who knows?

Next is a music video from Swedish indie pop band, The Sound of Arrows. This video is bizarre as all heck, but it's beautiful to look at.

Well, those should entertain you for at least 3 hours.

Have a good one!


  1. Like I have 3 hours to spare!!! I'll bet I would LOVE that TV show, though. And that music video is trippy and reminds me of those folders I used to have in elementary school that have like dolphins swimming through black holes or something equally absurd. Do you know what I'm talking about at all?!?!

  2. Lisa Frank. Yes, purple pandas with hypno-eyes and toxic whirlpools with psychotic dolphins.

  3. No, there's another one out there besides Lisa Frank! I can't seem to find it on the webz, though.
