Though there's no word on if the baby will be a boy or a call, the child will be third in line to the throne behind grandfather Prince Charles and…

Orlando-based designer Jason Dean just sent word about his latest poster that changes from day to night! The 9-color, glow-in-the-dark screen print shows a sunny little town during the day which turns into a seedy city at night. Check out the side by side close-ups to see scenes full of crime, sex, zombies and more. (Love how The City turns into City Jail.)

Cropped within the shape of a maple leaf, the bold Vancouver 2010 graphics are… Continue

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).
