It's strange to me that there are people of the legal drinking age that have never seen a cassette tape before. I remember 8-track. A teacher at my school had one in her Celica that we used to listen to when she'd give me a ride home. They only fit 8 songs per cartridge. Then the cassette tape came along a revolutionized music.
For those of you readers who don't know what a cassette tape is, they're like CDs, except that they use record… Continue
This collection by Miru Kim totally blows me away. Taking naked self-portraits in places we wouldn't dare visit, Miru draws beauty from old and abandoned subway stations, tunnels, aqueducts, catacombs, factories, hospitals, and morgues. It takes a lot of guts and willpower to visit these desolate places all alone.
Miru was born in Stoneham, Massachusetts in 1981 but was raised in Seoul, Korea. She moved back to Massachusetts in 1995 to attend Phillips Academy in Andover and moved to… Continue

But don't think his work doesn't have depth, in fact, you can bet there's a hidden lesson about social change in there. Phil says about his polar bear piece, "The message is clear, a black bear plus a polar bear equals a panda bear and to… Continue

Although these kids probably got an F on these exams, they should of got an A+ for creativity. These exam papers remind me of the past when we were all stuck in boring classrooms taking tests that were pretty pointless. Credit to the kids who made the best of the situation and had the guts to turn these exam papers in.…

Truth be told, I'm a die hard internet junkie. Yes, I know that you've already guessed it...but me and the internet, well it's a mad love affair. That's why I'll only post on television shows or specials when I can honestly say that I can't wait to turn off my Mac (ok fine - put it in sleep mode).
Jim Gaffigan is one of those comedians who really cracks me… Continue

Built by newspaper tycoon William Randolph Hearst, the extravagant estate is located on a hill overlooking the Pacific Ocean, about 250 miles from both Los Angeles and San Francisco. Donated by the Hearst Corporation to the state of California in 1957, it is now a State Historical Monument and a… Continue
Is it me or does this kind of remind you of Royksopp's Happy Up Here video? Either way, this new ad from Honda gets my vote for cool because it's retro and modern at the same time. Plus I'm a sucker for smiley faces and hearts.
Basically, Honda parked a huge grid of cars in the desert and used the headlights as pixels.
I particularly love this first piece by Ara Peterson of Rhode Island. He creates wicked 3-dimensional optical illusions utilizing repetition in colors and patterns. Using laser cut birch wood and acrylic paint, Ara produces movement in her pieces that are quite amazing...…
