David Doubilet’s Nudibranchs

Thursday, October 9th, 2008


I’m not sure what Nudibranch’s are exactly, but what I am mesmerized by is how photographer David Doubilet takes these incredible images underwater seemingly CGI or at least a bit of photoshopping, but sweet goodness, David strapped a mini lightbox to his camera and went right down in the ocean to shoot! Awesome! I need a large portable lightbox strapped to my camera now! Check out the rest of the article and images via National Geographic!

Mouth Harp+ Beatboxing

Sunday, October 5th, 2008


I love it when hybrids of styles mix. I’ve seen a handful of “Mouth Harp” videos and “beatboxing” spits, but never a mix of the two until this video! Makes for a pretty sweet psycho-techno kind of sound!

Picture: “Sometimes the Box is better!”
In the picture above, the box is better because the kid jumps into a toy, rather than playing with a toy. Big cardboard boxes somehow invite humans to draw, rip, manipulate, and imagine. Brown boxes don’t seem to have rules. We can make them what we want. As kids, we imagined and created more. As grown ups, we adapt to what things are for. In the world of creativity, remember that “perspective” is key to creativity. Just because something is made to do “this” does not mean it can’t do “that”.

– Tech: SpaceX Falcon 1 makes it to orbit! Amazing. Congrats! Videos here. (Falcon 1 is the first privately developed liquid fuel rocket to orbit the Earth)

– Politics: Obama helps total stranger pay for airport luggage back in 1988. Awesome! Obama rocks!

– Odd: Japaneses florescent bulb wrestling. I don’t get it?

– Fun: Heelys makes grownup size’s now. I saw a few adults sporting these in the past few weeks. At first I was like, these are for kids, but then realized, these can be mad fun, though they still look kinda ugly. Grab a pair, and make your boring co-workers where them Here’s a video, or some videos on the heely site.

– Sleep: The art in sleeping. When your tired, you somehow find a way to sleep no mater whee you are!

– Videos: “How and engineer folds a shirt” vs someone in “Japan folds a shirt“. Personally, I like Japan style. And yes, there are those that have the bunch it up and pack style.


Dear Adobe

Wednesday, October 1st, 2008

If your like most designers out there you breathe Adobe products yet have your slight nudges on features or GUI implementations. If so, creators Adam Meisel & Erik Frick have created the “Dear Adobe” website allowing you to gripe about all your devilish encounters. Go gripe about something, go see what others complain about, see the top gripes, and feel good your not the only one unhappy with adobe, though they rock!
