I’ve been wearing it for 3 days straight. And I can’t take it off. It truly is the finest sweatshirt I’ve ever owned. I don’t normally get like that about clothes. And I loved it without hesitation before seeing the video (in case you were wondering).
Another bonus point for YouTube! It’s completely bonkers that I can find a video of my new favourite item of clothing on the web.
We’re putting on a tour with Orange. It’s part of the whole ‘I am’ thing. The Unlit Tour is about an artist going on the road and creating his own ‘I am’ story as he goes. The tour is going to be ‘made by everyone’. From the people who open up their houses to act as gig venues and the bands who’ve offered to support to the strange and wonderful randoms that Jont and Dave meet on their travels.
This video basically tells the story better than I could. It’s the film of their first few days on the road.
It’s not perfect. The more I’ve played with it the more I’ve noticed little things that could be improved (I’ve listed them at the bottom). But you can tell the guys are working on constantly improving the app. And they’re taking user feedback splendidly well. Which is my first big tick.
10 Things I Love About Blip.fm can be read below (I’ve had to put it on another page or people’s mouse-wheels would wear out on the homepage).
Capital One did a really cool thing. Or at least it looks like they could have done if they hadn’t banked it up.
I noticed on Flickr that I could make a Capital One card. I thought that sounds interesting. It’s probably only the US, but I want to take a look.
Here’s the link:
So I click the link, and get here…
Here’s what’s wrong:
Which sounds really rubbish. I don’t want that. I want something that’s a bit interesting, or a bit exciting, or just a bit, different. I’ve come from Flickr. You know I like photos and stuff. Maybe even show me what one of these cards looks like…
Perhaps the answer is somewhere on the page. My eyes are being drawn to the card in the top left of the screen. Then they start to burn…
Now I don’t know about you. But most of the people I know do not have photos like that in Flickr. Unless they’re collecting photos of the most vile bank friendly stock art on the planet. And anyone who’d choose an image like that to be ‘distinctly them’ would be no friend of mine.
And then I notice that is says:
How on earth is that going to work. They’ll send me the card. I go back to the website and:
They send someone round to paint my card for me?
Or maybe they’ve got a wireless printing thing?
Or maybe it’s a sticker?
Or maybe they send me 2 cards?
I’ve got no idea. I’m now really confused. And the happy people at the top of the page are making me feel inadequate. There’s only one thing to click on…
I’m hoping that I’ll get to see some nice credit cards, just to reassure me that I’m in the right place and I haven’t just dreamed the last 2 clicks of my life…
Oh knackers. I’ve been tricked into the belly of the beast, again!
If you play solo clips from YouTube on the same page at the same time it sounds oddly like a band (kinda). I’ve got a project on the go to try and make an interesting random YouTube band maker. But I need some help.
Sorry if the page looks funny in some browsers, I built it with iWeb to see how good it is – I’m sure the code is minging but just wanted to see if it could do the job – I’ve only tested it on Safari and Firefox 3 on Mac (shoddy I know). If the page doesn’t look like the image above I’d love to hear the details in the comments below.
