Connect Like Lightning


Edible
Just today, i was talking about trying new things. This is not exactly what i had in mind, but it keeps with the theme. This company has capitalized on taking exotic delicacies from other countries, and mass marketing them (by either turning them into a chocolate covered snack or some form of liquor it seems). Each product comes complete with the spiritual and physical advantage, on beautifully designed, simple packaging. The only downfall, is a barely navigable website. GAH! Thanks Nina for pointing me towards this site. I don't think i would have a problem chowing down a tasty chocolate covered scorpion.

Crack, Dry, Fade



Dear Megalodon,

I think you are totally sweet. Do you still exist? I think you do, but people say you don't. What was it like to star in Jaws? Who do you think would win in a fight, you or a band of highly trained ninjas?

Love, Josh




There needs to be bad design in the world for people to know what good design is, as Heather put it so well. This Guy makes people know for sure. It's so bad i want to repeatedly punch myself in the face.

Your Web.

Based upon the fact that everyone i know (... two people, but none-the-less) have been posting about poisonous animals in there posts, i figured i would do some research. Now, the brown recluse spider (which everyone and there mom has seen the pictures of its bite on the internet) is pretty much only resident to one area. Here. The south and midwest. Along with that bad boy, there are 18 other spiders (19 total) that roam Missouri, including the Missouri Tarantula. NEAT! In contrast, Pennsylvania also has 19 breeds of spiders as well. Including... you guessed it; THE BROWN RECLUSE! There are some major differences that you should worry about instead, but i am not going to bring them up in hopes that you all stop worrying. Somedays i just wish a brown recluse would bite me...

in 4 hours i will be up for 24 hours... i'm hoping that won't be the case...


I haven't really been able to put a whole lot of time into doing some hard research, so design posts have been hard to come by. here are somethings that i thought were cool.

the Cool stuff:
Gal Shkedi did a beautiful animation for Staving in the Belly of the Whale by Tom Waits as a GRADUATION PROJECT. Crazy.
Rayman Raving Rabbids 2 has already started advertising. Check out the shit for hilarious pictures and videos featuring the scary/adorable Bunnies.
