Bowie in space

So I'm on a Bowie kick. So far I've been listening passively; we'll see how it goes.

First up is a couple things via Pikaland. Love the blog, especially since I won that awesome giveaway a while back.

Check out this charming video about Santa vs. cookies:

Keep Out of the Cookies (an animation) from Jessica Gonacha Swift on Vimeo.

Second I just really like this illustration by Scott Campbell.

Pretty cool, eh? I want to have a picnic with some clouds.

Lisa Hanawalt's art has me cracking up. It's like Richard Scarry on LSD.

Oh and if you feel inclined to get me a holiday gift, I wouldn't mind some of these.

I waaaannnttsss. via swiss miss.

Have a good monday, ya'll!

Turkey Day!

Hello all!

Just a quick post because I'm feeling jolly and read to go home for T-Giv.

First up, I thought this was hilarious. Via Learn Something Every Day

Ok, but who do the turkeys belong to?

Love this little bunny.

via nostalgie de la boue.

This is awesome. Via Oh Joy!

K bye! And remember, like the news, Thanksgiving is better auto-tuned.

Prepare for froot beam transmission

First up...

AOL (or should I say Aol.) partook in some rebranding a la Wolff Olins. Seriously, AOL? Seriously anyone?

via brand new.

Next is Put This On: Episode 1 - Denim. I saw this somewhere way back and just happened across it again on vimeo. The people of Put This On aim to teach men how to dress like grown-ups. If they get the funding, they'll make a six-episode series, apparently. Check it out and learn about jeans!

Put This On, Episode 1: Denim from Put This On on Vimeo.

This photographer, Gabriel Jeffrey, is kind of blowing my mind. via notcot.

Later, y'all.

So you're back from outer space...

Fun weekend except for our horrific loss against Penn State.

Alrighty, some cool stuff coming up...

check out this cool tent thing from Apartment Therapy. Not sure what you'd do with it, because you can't actually camp in it. Oh well. If it were exceptionally nice outside or we emptied out the living room, I could see myself using this for something silly.

Next, for those of us who are woefully limited financially, here's a way to save a few bucks on Thanksgiving dinner - straight off the dollar menu!

via Wired, it's How to Serve Fast Food on Thanksgiving!

Love this silly type treatment via Friends of Type.

Really liking this, too.

Also, this is just freakin' awesome. Video from Yeasayer - "Wait for the Summer."

Yeasayer "Wait for the Summer" from Mixtape Club on Vimeo.

Later, y'all!

Your body is a wonderland (I'll use my hands)

Oh, John Mayer. What do you guys think of the new album?

I'll just put up some inspiring photography today - how about that?

(both via desire to inspire)

(not sure of the source... my bad, but I suspect nostalgie de la boue)

That was a Rebecca Ward installation via Oh Joy!

This is just hilarious, thanks Eric!

Later, guys!

Apathy is sexy

...and ain't it the truth?

Feeling under-the-weather today, folks. Let's hope it doesn't last!

Well, first up we've got this special video from behind the scenes of the December 2009 Arts issue of Vogue. It features Annie Leibovitz, Grace Coddington, Lady Gaga, and Cate Blanchett. (via Oh?) It's kind of like watching America's Next Top Model, but for real.

Next up is an awesome typography-based video via design work life. The first one is just entertaining. The second from War of the Worlds, the text is dynamic and animated to suit the audio accompaniment. Follow the link to the blog post - there are two more verrrry interesting typographical videos featured.

War of the Worlds Kinetic Typography from J.R. Schmidt on Vimeo.

Ohhh my gaahhhh check out the Vimeo channel, Nice Type. It blowz mah mindz.

Next is this (IMO) inspiring portfolio site from Douglas Menezes. I love the background art and the composition of the content areas. Anyway, I suppose I just think it's clever.

I'm also kind of digging this blog - MissDIOR COUTURE. Not sure what it's about really - just some cool collages and photography of some fierce fashion.


That's it for today, guys!

Look - some stuff!

Hey all.

First up is this crazy stacking-on-a-Lego video from Boingboing.

Next, this purple dress is kind of blowing my mind. via love obsess inspire.

For real. Get me some grey leggings and I would worrkkk itttt!

Also, you should check out Amy Casey. Can't recall where I saw her featured recently, but check her out!

Wow. Life is...interesting.

Alright, here's what's up for today...

I'll just reblog this post from desire to inspire. Each space is uniquely interesting and frankly, I'm tired.

Next up is the siiiccckkk photography of Bruno Dayan. Just a warning, the beginning of his portfolio site is definitely NSFW. But these photos are mind-blowing

Ummm..... whaaaaat? via love obsess inspire.

Oh, and this thing via boingboing pretty much freaked my shit.

Later, ya'll!

All I wanna do is be there for the things that you're goin' through

Hello all!

Yes, I've been slacking - sigh. But life is currently blasting me with all kinds of crap (both good and bad.)

Kinda like this...

But I have plenty to be grateful for and the future is bright (despite the black eye.)

Anyway, a mish-mosh of stuff for today...

First up is this cool 8-bit sticky note video. I've always wanted to do this on a wall of somewhere I live, but the cost of sticky notes may not outweigh the potential awesomeness.

Ich Bin 8-Bit installation timelapse from Jude Buffum on Vimeo.

Next up is this really cool photo. Plants as organs - wow! What a cool concept.

(via love all this.)

You're gonna love this. Here's some work by illustrator Lina Ekstrand. I am bonkers for her work. Every piece is sexy/stylish/dark and I love it....

(via simple blueprint like last week.)

That's all, folks! Maybe there will be another update tomorrow (granted I stop being a slacker...)

hehe... (via)

You're too cool for me, dude

Hello all!

Today is a weird day, yeah? Here's to hoping something wonderful comes along... there are possibilities, methinks.

First up, check out this video from Malcolm Sutherland. He makes some seriously cool videos. Found via OK Great. I don't quite get it, but I definitely enjoyed it. I wonder where the music came from and how they got it to sync so well with the animation...

Forming Game (HD) from Malcolm Sutherland on Vimeo.

These extraordinary bird photos have had me fascinated for at least half an hour. Andrew Zuckerman, you are the bomb-dizzle. Via swissmiss.

I love infographics. And hilarious flow charts. And there have been a surplus of them lately, one of my favorites being:

via swissmiss. Don't it just make you wanna kareoke?

Too much, too much

Hello all!

I've been feeling very blah lately, but here's today's post.

I saw this over on design verb. So crazy and hazardous!

Also, again from design verb, this just BLEW MY MIND:

This made me laugh a bit. via notcot.

Suck on THAT!

This is also cool, IMO. By Robert Samuel Hanson.
