American Apparel

Say what you will about American Apparel but I love the brand. Admittedly, I do not buy $50 sweatshirts from their stores (or anything else for that matter) but their business philosophy is one to make note of. Imagine if even 10% of companies in the world operated with similar ethics with regards to production

What the (bleep) do we know?!

Here’s a clip from the movie “What The Bleep Do We Know? (Down The Rabbit Hole)”. More specifically it’s from the ‘quantum edition’ which allows the viewer to watch the movie in potentially infinite ways by jumping in and out of ‘rabbit holes’ of information. By information, I mean rants by people who don’t know

Type Cube..

Chris Clarke is a good up and coming designer mostly focused on graphics and typography. I think this project in the picture is quite interesting. It goes beyond game or tool territory and transforms making fonts a zen-like experience. (Both the Taoist & Buddhist I Ching are based on a system of 6×64) “Modular Typeface

Lego manufacturing is neato

Gizmodo got an exclusive tour of the Lego manufacturing facility. I’ve seen quite a bit of these type of videos and have seen some things first hand but this process blew me away. To mass produce small objects like this on such a massive scale and to do it with such precision and quality is

So, now on the list of things to go to next time I’m in NYC is the new exhibit at MoMA called ‘Home Delivery’. I’ve only taken a very quick look at the site and it’s about the idea of prefabricated housing & construction options for the urban environment. There will be 5 pre-fab structures

Now people that use tools have a blog too

For years the internet has forgotten a small group of people. This small demographic is those among us that use tools to fix and build stuff. Well, now these freaks got their own blog. I checked it out and even found out that there are stores with nothing but tools (and now bottled water). Who’d

Change of heart…

It’s no secret that I don’t really care for large corporations that don’t do much good for the world. However, I really want to work with BMW. Very few companies are sincere about change and innovation and BMW clearly puts their money where their mouths are. From their new facility by Zaha Hadid to the

Breaking News: Lil’ Wayne is an idiot!

I’ve always thought that Lil Wayne is amongst the most overrated rappers ever and could never understand why anybody in their right mind would think he’s dope. Seriously folks…explain to me why people continue to trick themselves, and him, into believing he’s even in the top 1,000 best MCs. If you’re reading this blog you
