ninjas can’t catch you if…

i just love the “ninjas can’t catch you if…” meme that has done the internet rounds.  this is a small collection of my favourite ones:

moustaches make a difference

an amazing movember ad campaign by TBWA\singapore…mario is my best!

love-hate relationships

versus/hearts, a graphic project by dan matutina, is about rivals.
“rivals hate each other, but deep inside they know they couldn’t exist without the other.”

meet some old school, and some more modern, pairs of rivals…

admitted fan-girl

i have become such a “fan-girl” when it comes to george r r martin’s song of ice and fire series.  i, like most, was introduced to the books through the launch of the hbo tv series.  well, i can tell you, it is one of the most epic fantasy sagas i have ever read!  so i simply had to post some fan art i came across…

pretentious poker anyone?

i was given a most wonderfully pretentious gift today!  this pack of uber-snobby helveticards.  can’t wait to whip them out and flash their clean, easily-legible, hands-down-awesome design…comic sans turns in its grave!


i am a cloud-watcher of many years, with photo files full of nimbus-studded skies.  so stumbling upon this dramatic and informative BBC photo essay, in which the met office’s john hammond decodes cloud photos sent by viewers of BBC one’s the great british weather, was a delightful treat.

may the fourth be with you…

finally, i have re-emerged from the palm forests of mozambique and am ready to unleash a flurry of posts!  the first of which being to wish you all a happy Star Wars day (for yesterday, i just couldn’t get my post done in time)…so without further ado:  “May the fourth be with you!”

giving voices to ghosts

with her work back, here below, formidable (the rebirth of prehistoric creatures) marguerite humeau, attempts to ressuscitate the sound of extinct animals by reconstructing their voicebox. Made of soft tissue, the vocal tract does not fossilize. The only elements which have been preserved through time are their bones. By comparing them with the larynx CT scans of their closest modern relatives, Humeau hopes to be able to deduce what the vocal organs of the extinct animals looked and sounded like. With the help of a specialist of each animal, the designer plans to remodel the soft tissues of the modern animals on the basis of the bone structure of the extinct one. The structure of the soft tissues will then be printed in 3D.

one hundred

quite a cool 00-99 set of numbers on flickr…i think i will start putting my own collection together.

nothing wrong with a little OCD stationery

if you are like me, it doesn’t take much more than a beautiful stationery/office supplies store to bring a wistful smile to your face.  so without further ado, may i present kontor kontur: a design office in gothenburg, working with graphic design, product design and interior design.

the boy who lived…

although the movies have fallen a little short of translating the awesome-ness of the books, the harry potter saga is still one of my best!  and this poster is a brilliant culmination of the adventures!

“science” is just magic spelt funny…

National Geographic Channel have created a real-life version of the animated film Up — launching a house thousands of metres into the air using balloons.

A team of scientists, engineers, and two world-class balloon pilots successfully launched a 16′ x 16′ house 18′ tall with 8′ coloured weather balloons from a private airfield east of Los Angeles, and set a new world record for the largest balloon cluster flight ever attempted.

a quote to nutshell me…

“Since then, I have never listened to anyone who criticised my taste in space travel, sideshows or gorillas. When this occurs, I pack up my dinosaurs and leave the room.” – ray bradbury
