I think I may have gone one step too far. But Ziploc bags combined with Bongo Ties have tamed my otherwise unruly cable collection.
If you’ve been round these parts for a while you’ll know I can’t resist a video with lots of funny dancing in it. This one does a nice job of mixing up hippies, grebos and ravers into a massive mongathon.
Whist in the middle of an email exchange Josh Millrod (@senatorbolton) replied with this:
In the way that many young people seemingly do, I LOLed. I also did a LOL when someone replied to a Tweet with this:
Anyone got any other useful favourites that I could add to my collection of 2 images?
Listening to this right now. And loving it. Here it is on Spotify Solar Bears – Inner Sunshine
When Bleep said:
Boards lo-fi psych, Bibio’s pastoral nostagia and Selected Works era Aphex drawn together in a kaleidoscopic fog for your ears.
I thought I might like it.
Previews from Boomkat:
For some reason this ad came into my head when I was in the shower. I think it was because I was just using random bottles of shampoo and shower gel.
Just goes to show the power of a jingle…
See this ball. It’s a ball like many other balls in Portland. It’s lying on the street. A normal ordinary street in a nice-ish neigbourhood. That ball will still be there tomorrow. And it will still bounce.
Everywhere I’ve ever lived before that ball would have been dead within an hour. A pissed student would have kicked it somewhere out of reach, a pitbull would have burst it, some kids would have nicked it for profit or just for fun, pretty much it would be killed 100 times in an hour.
I’m not quite ready to actually trust people yet, but it’s nice to live in a place where you can leave a ball on the street overnight.
In under 24 hours I’ve noticed these 2 ads for what I suppose are Google’s nearest competitors in a bunch of things.
First this Yahoo! ad.
Now I’m not crazy about the chick with the Social Media Tattoos. I’ve seen her around a bit and I find her a little bit, um, contrived. Especially when you put her outdoors in the middle of Tattoo-town (Portland, OR).
But then as I walked closer to the ad I noticed…
Holy shit, it’s hand painted!
At the very least this deserves an A for effort. Even if the ad is a bit horrible.
Then, this morning, I noticed this Microsoft Bing ad for the Portland Foodcarts Map.
You can view the map here: http://www.bing.com/foodcarts. The site takes a while to load and it’s not the best experience ever (and it only works in some browsers – not Chrome). But they have gone and made a theoretically useful map of Portland Food Carts. So again, A for effort.
It’s good to see these guys making an effort.
