In a few weeks, I would be unofficially a bum. I resigned but since the Management won't allow me to resign (because they can't afford to lose me) they had me on an "indefinite leave."
It's true how they say that you don't know what you've got til it's gone. It works both ways for me and the company. I didn't realize how people appreciated me throughout the years. When they heard the news, everybody was soo nice and kept on begging me to stay. Kinda convinced me to stay..… Continue

I work in advertising and marketing so great copywriting always catches my eye. Here's a campaign from AARP that is edgy and surprising. Not just because of what they do, but who did it. You have to watch the whole thing to get the genius, but I think it's worth it (and it's only two… Continue

The other day I watched the free premiere of "Nurse Jackie", the latest series on Showtime that you can grab on iTunes or directly on the Showtime website
The first episode looks very promising, and just like in "Sopranos" Edie Falco adds a great drama touch to that "Yet Another Hospital Drama Series".
To be… Continue

How ridiculous is technology getting? This will blow your mind.
At the E3 conference that's going on right now in Los Angeles, Microsoft just released Project Natal, a revolutionary hands-free motion-sensitive controller system. The technology, as demonstrated above, allows users to control games, movies, and anything else on their Xbox system with their hands alone, and without touching any hardware.
Here is Project Milo (thanks for the tip… Continue
What would celebrities look like if they lived in different time periods? Hundreds of highly talented photoshoppers from around the globe submitted their entry into Worth1000's "Celebrity Time Travel" competition. Here are some of my favorite pieces.
How much do we really know about the food we buy at our local supermarkets and serve to our families?
In Food, Inc., filmmaker Robert Kenner lifts the veil on our nation's food industry, exposing the highly mechanized underbelly that has been hidden from the American consumer with the consent of our government's regulatory agencies, USDA and FDA. Our nation's food supply is now controlled by a handful of corporations that often put profit ahead of… Continue
No, this picture isn't upside down. "Device to Root Out Evil" was designed by American artist Dennis Oppenheim, and is a sculpture of what looks to be an upside-down church. The steeple, usually piercing the sky in its lunge toward heaven, is now at ground level, pursuing with vigor, the demons of the deep.
"A country church is seen balancing on its steeple, as… Continue
The side of the Hotel St. George, in Viale Tunisia, Milan has been transformed into a living, breathing, dreaming creature by a group called Abstract Groove. They have put up a temporary video installation that let's the building come alive. They describe it as “an audiovisual experiment of perceptive transformation in architecture, through abstract narration, which will show the building as a screen and protagonist… Continue
Boys must love Bar Refaeli. After all, she's named after one of their favorite places. And her svelte body shape looks as solid as the wood pieces constructed to hold up pint after foamy pint of their favorite cold beverages. Why, she should be nominated to be a Bud Light Real Man of Genius. (We salute you!)…
Katy Perry showing us where babies come from, at the MTV Japan Video Music Awards on May 30, 2009.
Highlights according to the Guardian:
On the red carpet, guests fall into three categories: Japanese male pop stars who try to look as bored and pissed-off as possible, Japanese female pop stars who try to look as scared and under immediate threat as possible, and foreigners … who just muck about.
Citroen, the French automaker that's not like any others is reviving the iconic "DS" badge.
As a reminder the DS was a car from the 60s-70s the was considered decades in advance compared to the cars on the market back then. It sported things that BMW or Audi are bragging about currently: self-leveling hydraulic suspension and turning headlight that were following the driver's input on the wheel.
Here at theMET, we've teamed up with the people over at National Geographic and had the privilege of screening this emotional documentary last week. It's a story of tragedy and hardship, but most importantly, hope.
Known as "China's Elephant Man," Huang Chuncai suffers from an extreme condition that has grotesquely deformed his face. Exceptionally large tumors have stunted his growth, left his bones undeveloped, caused his spine to buckle and restricted his… Continue
It's makes a lot of sense that photographer Christoph Martin Schmid has a film background. "It was via photography that I discovered film which eventually brought me back to photography," he says. Christophe has the uncanny skill of telling vivid stories through alluring photographs. Here are some of his best works.…
A pretty sweet stop-motion video that resembles scenes from PES. Hardcuore created this video for the Brazilian juice brand, Do Bem. The stop-motion piece uses music from Joao Brasil and was directed by Breno Pineschi and Rafael… Continue
From what I hear, warm evenings in San Francisco are pretty hard to come by, so when it is balmy out, the restaurants lining the Belden Place alleyway become an outdoor circus.
Having snagged a great seat at B44 with equally great friends, we merrily ate our way through small plates of tapas (the grilled morcilla sausage and paella were criminally good) and drank our way through bottles…
I bet you didn't know there was such a thing as a "Blonde Weekend"...
On Sunday, a procession of more than 500 blondes paraded through Latvia's capital wearing pink and white. Many were escorted by lap dogs wearing the same cheerful hues. Their goal: to use their beauty to shine a little light into the dark mood caused by the global downturn..
Though it was far from being a protest march, some women used the opportunity to counter stereotypes. "I am beautiful, but I'm…
