It's been a strange and sleepless night ~ nurturing my budding jetlag, readers happen to catch me on facebook messaging, letting me know that Mark Hoppus reads NOTCOT... which led to the discovery of his octopus toy in the making ~ some twittering ~ much giddiness... and a sleepless morning of octopus obsessions and noticing how many octopi have appeared on NOTCOT.org and NotCouture! So, you know the drill ~ click those many octopi images to find out more!

Well it's 3:30am ~ time just keeps flying this week!!! Between the unpacking/settling into the new office/studio/house stuff, somehow boxing up and unpacking my life seems to have me reassessing the sites, and such as well ~ and we've also been crunching on an exciting surprise that should launch later this week... bottom line? I have a bunch of posts lined up to go that i just need to take some pics for ~ and in the mean time have been posting/shopping far more on NOTCOT.org lately! So take a peek at some of my posts above, and as usual, click the pics to find out more!
And for our newest site ~ Liqurious that was launched in 2008 ~ it's had quite a fruitful year of delicious and beautiful drinks! While an idea that launched out of a less than fun learning experience over the late TasteSpotting (yes yes, for those who missed those few months, TasteSpotting died in 2008 just 1.5 years old ~ and we sold the domain name) ~ but happily, from that launched Liqurious!!! With which i think we've all learned a lot very quickly about the mysterious world of mixology! Where science, design, and liquid poisons come together perfectly ~ here are the top 100 posts from Liqurious in 2008 ~ click to explore!
And to follow up on the last post about Lego's new Digital Boxes by Metaio ~ here's a roundup of Augmented Reality as collected up on NOTCOT.org! Most of these end up linking you to videos and picture where you can see augmented reality digital "pop up books" ~ and playful puppies who run to other card/markers that are water dishes, 3D graffiti painting in a warehouse, adorable monsters, xmas cards, and my favorite is the zoo ads you aim your cell phone at and see animals... So much potential with the technology, i'm super excited to see what people will come up with next to push the boundaries further!

It's been a while since i've done a proper roundup, and amidst all the giveaway/review and gift guide posts it seemed about time! So here are some of the posts that i love most from the last week or so! Feel free to click them and find out more!!!
Being delirious, exhausted, and feverish through halloween and part of the weekend means much time curled up in bed napping and strangely wandering all over NOTCOT.org, revisiting random posts (i kind of love the random button when i have no clue what i want to look at)... feeling quite a bit better now (thanks to all of you who messaged me on twitter/facebook/etc!), but thought it'd be fun to have a quick roundup of some of the more recent posts that stuck out in my mind! So as usual, click away on the squares to find out more!
I've been doing a bit of catch up... as you saw, last week's vacationing really became a bit busy again ~ hardest part of this "job" is its still so much fun, its hard to actually stop and take a breather, the business and pleasure sides are so inter-mingled! But i did basically take a break from the crazy amount of emails during that time! Anyhow, trying to roadtrip down to Arizona tomorrow, any suggestions of things that we must stop to see on the way back, or wander around to are always appreciated, we'll probably be in tuscon most of the weekend, and see what happens next week ~ and as long as i have internet, you know i'll be posting (actually, if you don't hear from me for too long, get worried!).
Anyhow, its been a really fun week on .org ~ so here are some of the most popular the last few days! Also check out the NotCouture and Liqurious roundups on the next page too! You know the drill ~ click to find out more!
Up in SF ~ wedding this weekend, tried to take a little break, now presentation thing today, conference next two days ~ agh! Basically running around a little too crazed at the moment, so wanted to give you a roundup of the best of the last week and a half over at NOTCOT.org! You know the drill, click whatever interests you to find out more up there!
Hi! So, here's the deal, i've been slightly overworking lately, and have been getting ready for gift guide ideas, holiday season, new features, playing with new projects, and keeping up with the high speed stream of goodies at NOTCOT.org, NotCouture, and Liqurious... also off to a wedding next week up in Sonoma... and the Federated Media Conversational Marketing Summit (i was asked whether i wanted to do ticket giveaways, any of you interested in meeting me at the summit and chatting conversational marketing?) on the 15th-16th.
While running around someone has been poking me about how i haven't taken a "real" break in about 3 years - but that's what doing what you love and having it turn into your job means right? Apparently, wrong. So i'm going to try and take a breather for the next week, and have a quick favor to ask you... Help me out with a few questions? 1) When i take a break, and in general, would you rather have me hire writers to just run around the net showing you things here on NOTCOT.com? Versus having this be more of my personal blog? (I'm slightly biased, as it's pained me to watch some of my favorites hire a ton of people and the content gets old and not nearly as fun, but there's probably a way to find a balance?) 2) What stores for designer and fashion goodies can you not live without that we should take a look at while researching for gift guide? Which includes everything from scouring their stores for products, seeing if they'd be interested in discounts for readers, etc etc (ideas?)...
OH, and you know me, "break" can sometimes = more posts. I get excited, i post. But since i've been slowing down the pace the last few days here anyhow, thought i'd make it official. So i may still be posting, but consider this the heads up for the next week and a bit if i miss a day or two... but just check into NOTCOT.org to get your creative juices flowing! Here's a quick roundup of some of my current faves over there...
Click the images to see more, as usual ~ and would you believe there's something new going up there practically every few minutes?!?!?!
Can you believe its Friday already? Well, here's to Friday afternoon (of a long weekend for the americans) ~ and to kick it off, here's your digital dose of happy hour, rounded up from what was sipped at Liqurious this week! Click those images to find out more info! Chin chin!
Jewelry seemed to be the main theme this week on NotCouture. There's a crazy Jaeger-LeCoultre watch that doubles as a keyless entry for the Aston Martin DBS (how James Bond!). And the other mini-theme seemed to be coats and jackets as we're about to transition into Autumn (how is summer almost over??). If jewelry and coats aren't your thing, there's plenty of other stuff to check out at NotCouture, and of course keep sharing your cool finds with us!
