this is just kewl. i’m thinking about writing a poem for vie and lay it over my back so it looks like it’s there beneath my skin when my skin is ripped. or.. i could have some kind of clockwork down there to give the illusion that i’m an ai-bot. lol. either way this idea kicks massive ass!!

via things you don’t see everyday.

ArtFaceOff – As If Artists Need Competition

Thursday, November 23, 2006, 1:42 pm


From Techcrunch

ArtFaceOff is a new site that lets artists upload pictures of their art along with descriptive tags, and compete in a face-off with other artists. Winners move on to the next level of competition, and the eventual winner receives a $1,000 prize.

The money is never a bad idea but I wonder why artists would feel the need for competition? Art is art and every piece of art is beautiful and/or fugly in its own way. People who know about art always say art is about how it makes you feel, so there isn’t really good or bad art, it all depends on who looks at it and when. The site does give new artists a place to showcase their work and interact with other artists though, so it can’t be all that bad.

Where Passion Meets Fashion

Thursday, November 23, 2006, 12:00 am

I’ve been working on VieCouture since yesterday and after about 10 long hours each day doodling with the design and coding I’m proud to finally brag about it to you.

VieCouture - Where Passion Meets Fashion

It’s a high end fashion blog so it’s not really my thing, but Vie loves it and she’s been blogging like nuts over there. I hope we could turn this into another gold pot to support our high end lifestyle – just kidding! ;-)

Ok shoo, take a look and come back here later and let me know what you think.

Scrabble-Tile-Holder Benches

Monday, October 23, 2006, 12:44 pm


Serious settings are boring. So in attempt to de-serious their work environment the offices of Bloomberg London is getting neat installations of these Scrabble-tile-holder benches (with Scrabble-tile-pillows) from Stephen Reed Industrial Design. I could use some of these too, but until I make big doh like them guys do I’ll have to scrap wood and make my own.


Encyclopedia Into Scrapbook

Here’s something cool you can do with old book (and encyclopedia) covers.

Lisa Vollrath documents a beautiful book-binding art project: she took the cover off an old, falling-apart encyclopedia and filled it with wallpaper, art, photos, and other scrapbook sheets. Then she rebound it with wire and old rulers.
