Apple launches new VIDEO IPOD… and remote… READ: me jumping on today’s bandwagon. But its cute, innovative, cutting edge tech… killing off more little 3rd party kiddies, yet so pretty and pushing good design onto stupid tasteless folks… yes, i’m torn. It is so pretty though. Yet part of me is so over it.
Truly the coolest thing i’ve seen all night… and you know i’ve been on an inspirational roll tonight… click it… b/c that is simply a close up of the THREE PANEL BUS STOP covered in bubble wrap… WOW. my fingers are itching to pop some bubble wrap… BRILLIANT. via the brilliant Frederik Samuel.
So i’m in advertising (day job) these days… and this is supposed to help with those idea blocked moments… its amusing anyhow, and clean and simply designed. Concept away…
It is a pink pigeon, that emits light. By Ed Carpenter. Wall mounted light made of 3mm vac-formed Perspex with 25W light bulb.Available in white, grey, pink and orange with either white or orange flex. Ha.
SO CUTE. Yes i know i say that about 90% of things i post… and the recycled vintage towel thing is an interesting take on the stuffed animal genre… my question is whether they are used. But cute none the less, i love this pic. Design by Andreas Linzner.
Ahhhh that ambient screensavers for your life/tvs/displays of any sort in full force, in conjunction with Pantone, the color authority… The vid previews are fun, and its interesting to see the companies buying into it so far, as well what they are using it for. Color therapy is coming up these days, and i must admit these are pretty gorgeous for what they are.
OOOH major mac update, and now for windows users too… and i wish my bluetooth phone hadn’t fallen in the washing machine… MANY more phones now supported as well… but all of you who haven’t need to play with this and let me know how its working. As well as how nice the major upgrades are….

Reg at WMMNA found this great piece that finally embraces the use of external furniture and spaces to be inevitably used by skaters, and instead of trying to fight it, embraced it.
Ok, so today’s posting is more about me than you, they all are i suppose. But i’m in an inspired day, and this link needed to be saved visually. Its such a great idea, with much potential. Can’t wait to come back and browse when there’s more up. google+flikr+street art = THIS.
So cute. It is just an egg cozy. Has a katamari meets “brrr its cold and i need a beanie” sort of feel. But so adorable. and 100% lambswool.
YOU NEED TO CLICK ON THIS IMAGE It is filling my obsession of that space between science and art/design. Robert W. Gray has formatted R. Buckminster Fuller’s Synergeticsinto web form, offering quick linking to indexed scenarios and figures… and the for those not up for the read, the images are gorgeous. Check it out here.
In a rush around world, its not often you can spontaneously whip out a little candle, burn it to the end, be relaxed, and then run off to the next part of your day… Or you can. Cute idea =) Adorable packaging. Zinoo Park Designs…

To be honest, the last few weeks, life and passions have been conflicted and busy. Trying to get back to what drives me, a few sites pointed me to this amazing Woven Glass art, and its just blown my mind. Absolutely gorgeous, in both a tactile and visual way, i had to share it. Gorgeous and fascinating isn’t it? Enjoy. Also like the design and simplicity of the website… Markow & Norris
p.s. any socal (esp LA or SD readers, who would be interested in getting more involved, or finding new people to embark on ideas and projects with, please email… on a hunt for invigorating, passionate new people to design with!)
