Adrian Holovaty



Okay... so I'm a huge fan of Youtube, as most people who know me are aware... I love to find people who put their own unique spin on things, and this guy is certainly is. His name is Adrian Holovaty, and he's a musician from Chicago. He seems to have a pretty loyal following on youtube, and for only having played guitar since 1997, his work speaks for itself in it's sheer amazingness. He did a Radiohead remix contest and was even mentioned in Rolling Stone magazine. His… Continue

Emotional Winter Olympic Moments

What is it about the Olympics that keeps us glued to the screen, jumping/shouting/screaming at the tv like we've completely lost our minds? The easy answer is that we're in awe of these athletes - the ones who have trained tirelessly for years and, for some, a lifetime for their chance to show us, their country, the world and themselves that they are the best. But it's not just the physical strength or the technique we're in awe of, it's their mental focus. Because we all know that it's the… Continue

Nokia's Giant Arrow Points You to Good Things



Though this giant arrow is no longer up, I like the creative concept and how this video succinctly explains Nokia's idea behind it. In order to get people to think about Nokia when they think about navigation, they put up the world's biggest signpost (arrow) in London. Help up by a crane, the arrow was a digital panel where people on the street could send text messages to. Their favorite places to visit would show up, the arrow would point to that location, and also… Continue
