A card for you:

A Very Fabulous 8-Bit Christmas Tree

A Very Fabulous 8-Bit Christmas Tree: "
8-bit-tree.jpg

I’ve been told that this isn’t photoshopped, and all the ornaments are actually just 2D. Judging by the giant mural behind the tree, I’d say the owners are geeky enough to hand make all these.

There’s some pretty cool stuff on there if you look closely, and I don’t see any ornaments that repeat. Beats the hell out of my Christmas tree which is just sentimental crap like a mold of my first hand print as a newborn. Get real mom! Classic video games are the REAL nostalgia!"

Is this for real??

Probably one of the coolest things I've seen in a long time....how can I make this into an ad?

Flexio is this really awesome radio that’s solar powered and portable. I’m willing to overlook the “only one fixed FM channel” stand for the cute little paper packaging it comes in. I’m sure the dynamics of manufacturing this are going to be reasonable, because one can even use it for promotions and gifts…like ask someone to advertise on its package. The innovative factor comes from the flexible speaker & flexible solar cell. It’s designed to be used within the station-waves range, but could be modified to receive internet radio via WiFi or WiMax.

Designers: Wu Kun-chia, Wang Shih-ju, Chen Ming-daw & Liou Chang-ho

Made me laugh...

But still doesn't make me want to use Windows.

Lady Gaga before she went Gaga

She may be weird as shit, but I've come to respect Lady Gaga for what she is.  Which is a talented singer, who likes to think differently and doesn't care what people think about her.  Which consequently makes people love her.  Her outfits are crazy, and fun to make fun of, but she has the balls (supposedly) to wear them.  And her music videos are like nothing I've ever seen.  Reminds me of Madonna and her crazy videos back in the day.  New, fresh, and in Gaga's case, futuristic.  I don't like all her songs, and I def. don't like most of her outfits, but Lady Gaga is cool in my book.

This is her when she was a NYU student, before the fame.

Prospective client:
$400 for a logo?! Why are you so expensive? My nephew has Photoshop—I can just get him to do it.


Me:
Does your nephew have Microsoft Word?


Prospective client:
Yes.


Me:
Then have him write you a novel while he’s at it.
