This map is totally cool.
“The Web Trend Map is a yearly publication by iA Inc. It maps the 333 most influential Web domains and the 111 most influential Internet people onto the Tokyo Metro map.”
Amy Winehouse has been told to keep her clothes on. Funny picture huh?

Bless the internet for showing us every strange/interesting hobby in the universe. Is This Your Luggage is a website that shows one humans lost luggage collection.
I COLLECT LOST LUGGAGE, PHOTOGRAPH IT, AND THEN TRY TO FIND THE OWNERS. IT’S A LITTLE ODD BUT NOT AS ODD AS STAMP COLLECTING, JUST A LITTLE HARDER TO FIND STORAGE SPACE.
Note: They buy the Luggage from Auctions, because apparently after a certain amount of time the airlines give up on trying to find the owners.
Students are getting sharper by the day.
This is from the students on the BA (hons) Design for Moving Image Design and Graphic Design courses at Ravensbourne College, who are raising funds for their graduation show
“Rather than the usual cake sale or student union party, we decided to do something a little bit more exciting this year. We will be sending our favourite designers and illustrators packages containing random items (which could be anything from an old teapot, to a skateboard, to a vintage suitcase). They will then be asked to customise these items in any way they see fit. These masterpieces will then be collected and put in a silent auction on the 30th of April at the Vibe Bar on Brick Lane.”
Artist/Designers include: Paula Scher, Milton Glaser, David Carson, KozynDan, Eine, Parra, and many more…

According to Wikipedia, National Cleavage Day is at the beginning of April, some say the 4th and some the 7th. Since today is the 7th, we’ll go with that. Harmless
On Sale this Thursday at a time not selected is the print of this Elephant above. I wonder if the elephant is really hungry and is just waiting to eat that flower?
Note: check out this site, FWAPhoto, a photo a day. Great work.
This past Saturday, we had the honor of watching one of our founders tie the knot. Besides being amazed by the wedding as a whole, we were immediately drawn to the photobooth set up by Weddings By Two. Seriously, it is one of the coolest ideas ever. The photography is crisp, the attendees get instant gratification by having their photos print out in real time and the newly wedded couple gets to see all of the fun that their guests had in an album created after-the-fact.
Congrats to MelVin! You are the Best in The World!
This is great…..

We’re not sure what’s going on over at Urban, but they have stepped it up a bit. The catalogs are tasty and the products are surprising. I know the urban uk carries some high(er) end designs and it now looks like the U.S. site has some nice things as well. For example, this Acacia Wood Twist Stool.
“Hand-carved and completely eco-friendly is this Twist Stool, made from the thick branches of the quick-growing Acacia tree in Thailand – where each branch is cut and carved to order (allowing the tree to continue growing). ”
Just a heads up to readers, if you’re looking to add some Shepard Fairey prints to your collection have a look over here

Forever21 rips off Minor Threat’s Logo. A reader commented on our Mitchy Bwoy post from a while back, about him ripping off Woolies logo. You thought we wouldn’t Notice (one of the world’s best names I must say) is a site dedicated to pointing out those things that give you that feeling of ‘haven’t I seen that somewhere before?” The site contains multiple posts on numerous categories with side-by-side comparisons of rip-offs. Completely user-generated too! For more information about the blog go here.
There was a link floating around the internet a couple weeks ago involving the Criterion Collection release of Bottle Rocket and the liner notes that re-created Dignan’s Notebook.
