He is the Break in Our Line

Michelle Rheaume Design's


This is one i have been trying to post for a while but i have become backed up on other things. I would like to say it's because i am working on my sisters website non-stop, but it's not... it's World of Warcraft. However, i have been busting my butt on Kayla's page, and you will see an update soon. Also, work has been crazy as well. Moving on, the meat of this post is about adorable softies from Michelle Rheaume. She is amazing. I first discovered her through this:
MARIO SOFTIE!

Most are either treat or Mario themed, and all pretty reasonably priced. I am always a sucker for a well crafted item, especially when it is pertaining to something i like. If it wasn't totally fem to have something like this in your kitchen, i would have one in a heartbeat. However, i am still debating.

For more, check out her Flickr

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.

Off the Horse, but Back in the Saddle.

I'm dedicating this blog post to my domestic side... sometimes, I'm slightly more domestic than i might like... luckily, it is in a boyish artistic way.

Thanksgiving's Rice Crispy Turkey
Thanks Em for modeling that leg.


"Light My Tree" Christmas Party's Anatomically Correct Gingerbread People
It was almost too easy with the supplies i had to work with.


Kosher Wine and Wii Party/Potluck
This might require a little more explaining. Though it was called kosher, the food didn't necessarily have to be. Follow? Basically, because it was the first day of Hanukah today, the same day as my potluck, some how the choice was made of have it a Jewish food theme. This is the result of the stew i made for it. It definitely seemed like a hit. I wish i was smart enough to have taken a "before picture" as well. Thanks to those who made my little get together a personal success.


Sometimes, i just enjoy rocking out.

When You Love Enough to Hate

Today at lunch, i got a fortune. It said,

"You were born with a silver spoon in your mouth."

That's not a fortune! That's bordering on insulting! I had ment to scan it in, so you would get the full effect, but i lost it somewhere between the Chinese place and here. It was much more amusing with the smiley faces that began and ended the sentence.

Thankfully, it's Friday.

"I love this city, but I've set and numbered its days. I love this city, enough that I'll set it ablaze. It will burn."

When Old is New Again

It's Friday and i'm just about to leave. I feel like i didn't do much today, but both of my cards are almost finished. Of course the art director could have something to say about that.

Nothing interesting to post today. Dinner went well last night. The chili was just ok though. =) Next time it will be better though. I learn from my mistakes. Last night Heather and I watched a movie called Born Rich, about heirs and heiresses (correct thanks to kristen, spell-master) of fortunes — The Trump girl, the Johnson & Johnson kid. It was interesting, but not thrilling.

The only thing i will post is this. Because i have friend at Nike:
Nike Vintage.
These shoes rule.
I'm sure Nick and Lexi have themselves a couple of pairs already. The site's only OK, but they goodies section is a great idea to create buzz.

and... weekend. see ya Monday, unless i get bored or see something thrilling.

Cloaked

Ok, a hodge-podge of stuff today:

The WWF (the World Wildlife Foundation, not Wrestling) often seems to come up with ingenius advertising. This one I think is definately along those lines:


As i promised, i am going to post briefly on the movie trailer that is making more waves then half of the summer blockbusters. 1-18-08 (or Cloverfield or The Parasite). Click the link for the trailer page. Notice a lack of title anywhere. The trailer leaves you feeling the same way. What the public does KNOW is the movie is by J.J. Abrams. He is the dude who brought us such masterpieces such as LOST!, Alias, MI:III and the new Star Trek film. Drew Goddard who was worked with Abrams before is writing. The director, Matt Reeves, did... Felicity. OK. It pretty much has to be a "monster movie." The trailer makes that pretty obvious. A website emerged soon after the trailer was premiered with the Transformers movie. It has been updated with pictures that are along the same lines as the trailer. I have to mention the nice action scripting on the site. Also the site, Ethan Haas Was Right, which hasn't been officially linked to the movie but has something to do with a city being destroyed and these futuristic looking puzzles that unlock movies of a man talking about a "resistance." If these are linked in any way i am going to say it is an alien invasion movie. I'm 3 puzzles in. Already people are nerding out and making ridiculous theories without really knowing anything solid. Flipping the pictures on the official site, reading unto the hidden videos on the puzzle site. Speculations that the movie will be film completely on a "handheld", from a first person point-of-view makes sense, based on the fact that this is how the trailer was filmed. Also people are saying it's based on the H.P. Lovecraft Cthulhu. I think the nerds just get a hard-on over this character. I sorta get a semi. But i'm not going to count on that. Thats all i will post on this for now. All this mystery gives me something to do while Lost is off the air.


I wish this were a joke. Well, it is a joke, it's just not fake. To add insult to injury, thats Jason Lee in the corner as David Seville, and Dave Cross is in it too. If the poster holds true, i hear the movie starts out in Compton with a drive-by shooting, where the Chipmunks are caught up in the crazy world of cocaine and gang wars.

365 Portraits. I know i have posted this already. But added to the list of portraits, is my friend Kristen. And she looks fantastic.

Wii Fitness and wii Balance board it tells you your BMI and changes your Mii to fit the discription. I might just have to get this. The board is pretty like the Wii. See ya gym, video games are taking your spot.

I actually have something to look forward to when i get home today. I have some Vegetarian chili cooking on my new crockpot. I'll let you know how it turns out.

love, Josh
