Real Sugar, not that hi-fructose corn syrup junk.  Looks like we’ll be making the trek to Williamsburg to get some of that good ish.

the Morning commute

I like suffle on the iphone, it’s like a pull at the slot machine to see what your day is going to be like. Today’s pull, and a really good one. The clash Straight to Hell. There are good songs and there are great songs. I guess what I am trying to say songs that take you away, make things better. A cold morning walk listening The Clash….

The Stimulus Logo

This is nice, however I personally would have liked to see some Dollar Bill signs on it. $$$$$$$

The Wall Street Journal has a good read on Branding The Recovery, but aren’t we still falling?

YYY’s SnakesWeat: the philosopher

Very cool viral promotional videos for Yeah Yeah Yeah’s new album. Just a heads up, this is a great album. We are refraining from posting anything illegal that we may or may not have, it’s worth the wait.

Vote Earth commercial


I always like the way Shepard Fairey’s work comes off in animation, look out for prints in the future.

“The first global ‘Vote Earth’ television commercial will feature Coldplay’s ‘Fix You’ and artwork by Shepard Fairey with animation by Syd Garron, voice over by Cate Blanchett and production by Curious Films.”

I think ‘Earth Hour’ will be one huge makeout session.

are you semi-permanent?

semipermanent

Internet years are like dog years, each one is equal to at least 5. Anyway, we just got a heads up and some words of praise from Design is Kinky. I can remember when I first heard of them and saw their site and work, it feels like decades ago. They have this event called Semi-Permanent, it is actually pretty permanent. Semi-Permanent has been around for 6 years, with 17 events in 6 cities throughout 4 countries with 109 speakers…. etc etc you get the point.  If you have never heard  of Design is Kinky or this event check it out and if your close by,  go to the event. Here is a bit of info.

“Semi-Permanent is a design event. It consists of a conference and side events which include exhibitions, competitions, workshops and parties. It’s a week long celebration of all things design. Graphic Design, Film, Art, Illustration, Web Design, Photography, Visual Effects, Animation, Graffiti, Motion Graphics, Stop Motion; all these things and more. Semi-Permanent explores the diverse and exciting design world bringing together exceptionally talented artists and designers to speak at the event.”

Supreme Skateboards x Damien Hirst

damien-hirst-skate-deck

In a recent interview with Glenn O’Brien for Interview Magazine, Supreme founder James Jebbia gives a little back story on the popular Artist series skate decks that Supreme has been producing.  One great quote in regards to the customers buying the decks stuck out to me because it is very true,

“It’s actually easier to get the art crowd, because they’ll buy anything if they think they can make money off of it.”

This leads into Supreme’s latest series by Damien Hirst which will enter stores and the internet later this year.  Based off of his Spin Series paintings, I wonder how he feels that each individual deck will only be $68? Welcome to 2009 Damien.

bachelor party fun

partyfun

A friend of the TWBE is getting married really soon. I was looking at Bachelor party websites to see what’s what…. One of our first posts at the W was about a shooting range for bachelor parties, and another post about BP’s was this strip club in SF that I went to… it was like watching Requiem for a Dream.

Anyway, I stumbled across this mess of a site, that sell’s gag BP gifts. So out of the three dolls above, which one do you think we should get? Or suggest a gift in our comments.
