Okay, so I'm very excited about my new place. At first, I had a little bit of renter's remorse because the apartment is smaller than the place I was at before. The Brown Couch of Death was the most comfortable piece of furniture I've ever owned; I've fallen into blissful sleep on it many a nights. Because it's smaller, the BCOD wouldn't have fit in the new living room, so I got rid of it and the loveseat.
It turned out to be blessing in… Continue

Father of the year nomination right here!
These totally draw the attention away from the warm bologna-and-american-cheese-sammich-funk wafting from under your desk during class. Kinda. Now that I think about it, probably draws more attention towards it. Whatever. I can totally smell the hot-tuna-juice coming from under yours. Or is that your crusty slip-ons-with-no-socks that's killing… Continue

Is it only me that thinks this building is really sexy? Credit goes to JAJA, an architecture office based in Copenhagen, Denmark, who has revealed this proposal for an office and shop complex in Sandnes, Norway. The project occupies 1139,930 ft² (13000 m²).
The building, named Ormen Lange, snakes through the landscape and lifts itself up to create a new… Continue

23 year old Romanian artist Kovacs Katalin doesn't draw traditionally "pretty" girls. In fact, one look at them and you'll wonder if they were inspired by models during the grunge era of the 90s. They're more gaunt than gorgeous, like a modern day Pippi Longstocking who fell into the wrong crowd and could never find her way back home.
Regardless, Katalin's… Continue

Wouldn't it be nice if dark streets were illuminated by these beautiful, photosynthetic leaves? That’s the concept behind Jongoh Lee’s "invisible streetlight." The flexible body of the solar-powered light is designed to directly wrap around a tree branch with no support required, seamlessly blending into the surrounding environment. The leaves store the sun’s energy… Continue

In the Art world there is something new every day. Installations of glass or light, or wire and medications thrown on the floor. Some of these are interesting to look at – some certainly cause one to ask “WHY”???? But whenever there is real talent, raw drawing and painting, it just jumps out and SCREAMS at you. There is no way to fake talent, you have it or you don’t.
Seeing hundreds of things pass my desk daily only reinforces that. Quality catches the eye every time. The ability to… Continue

Russian artist Alena Nikiforova creates some wicked effects in these photos. Instead of setting her beautiful models in a typical bubble bath, it's as if she dropped in some brightly-colored magical powder. The powder takes on a life of it's own in the water and creates a mystical vibe. Very creative Alena - great job!…

One Saturday afternoon, I woke up with a crippling hangover that had me in a wheelchair and an IV attached to my arm. I was advised to head over to St. Michael's Alley, as their eggs are purported to contain magical healing powers.
I'm not sure about the healing powers part, but I do know that the St. Michael's omelet has cream cheese buried in it, and mixing that with melted cheese, eggs and… Continue

Belgian photographer Koen Demuynck is my kind of guy. By looking at his work you can tell he's an "out of the box" visionary who must be half genius, half crazy. But on the real, Koen definitely has one of the most creative minds I've come across in design. You've probably seen some of the countless advertisements he's created without even knowing it. Here are some… Continue

As our world's population stretches beyond 6.76 billion, it's easy to feel lost. And though we each seek to express our individuality, sometimes a sense of community is all I seek. A place where I know I can be understood.
