Pink Floyd’s PR Stunt Recycles Animals

If you are into music, and perhaps no matter your age, you recognize the iconic Pink Floyd album cover for Animals.  The pig flying over Battersea Power Station in London elicits "that's from the Pink Floyd album", when we pass it on our way to/from Heathrow the first time we visit London.

It's Friday, and we wanted to send you into the weekend with something playful and well-executed. Designer Alessandro Novelli's Alphabet 2 is a video experiment in developmental spelling.

Mark Changizi: How Not to Get Absorbed in Someone Else’s Abdomen

Mark Changizi and I met on Stumbleupon. His work with the science of creativity, the harnessing of the brain (he just released a new book), and his general intelligence caught my eye immediately.  As I have mentioned here before, Stumbleupon has been a constant source of likemindedness since discovering it in 2007.

Guitar Oscillations Filmed From Inside by an iPhone 4

Mixing Reality : Three Months of Blogging

Thoughts on being back at blogging : At first it was an anonymous daily experiment to see if I could muster the personal discipline to be consistent, but three months  have gone by quickly.   I had help with contributions from Shaun Bybee who now lives in Lyon, France.  She spent many years in the fashion and beauty world, later [...]

Martin Wittfooth Paintings

We so enjoy friends like Tommy Kane.  Not only are they talented in their own right, they know a lot about other artists.  Martin Wittfooth is a painter with the mad skills of old school, and the sensibility of now. Working with allegory and animal symbology, Wittfooth draws us in with his classically adept use of oil and panel. He [...]
