I think there is a special type of humor found in silhouettes.

I’ve always liked homemade board games, but this was the first time I ever thought of them as potential for art. Would you hang a Board Game on your wall?

Transparent Computer Screens?! I loved this, and have now done it at work myself! Check out the gallery.
“After researching and testing the process in our studio we began to search for an ideal architectural space within our college buildings to execute our installation in. When planning an anamorphic installation is it important to consider that to maximise the fracturing of the design, it is best to try and touch as many plains as possible. We eventually decided to carry out our installation in a corridor of our college (as shown in the images) using the long walls to maximise the distortion of the letterforms. All of our work is site specific and we spend as long as possible discussing a choosing the perfect architectural locations for our works. ”

Four Square turns NYC into a giant game of risk. I’ve thought about turning the 5 Burroughs into a risk came before, but this is a fun low impact way to play. Read more at Mashable.
For a long time now I’ve loved the composite Photography Peter Funch. Funch, as in Fun with a Crunch. I think I’ve blogged this before, but If I can go back and look at these so can you.

“Bands have long been leaders when it comes to tapping the crowds for help with funding, promotion and more, but it wasn’t until recently that we saw one give fans quite this much control: UK indie rock band The Kaiser Chiefs recently launched an initiative whereby fans can create their own version of the latest digital album and then earn proceeds when other fans buy their customized mix as well.
There are 20 new tracks for fans of The Kaiser Chiefs to choose from in creating their own version of “The Future Is Medieval,” which is the album the band launched earlier this month. All they need do is listen and then add their 10 favorites to their album playlist. Next, fans can create their own custom album artwork by dragging and dropping an assortment of objects and resizing, rotating or rearranging them at will. Once they’re satisfied with their creation, users can register and pay GBP 7.50 for their custom album. At the same time, they’re given a fan page on which others can learn about and purchase the customized version they created; for each copy sold, the creator earns GBP 1.
The Kaiser Chiefs’ effort is nothing if not a smart way to generate buzz about a new album. Perhaps even more significantly, however, it’s also a testament to the increased clout of the content-creating masses. In not so very long, it may just become unthinkable for a band to create a new album without the involvement of its biggest fans.” — Springwise.
Shared expenses are always a tricky challenge, largely because of the logistics involved in making sure everyone pays their own fair share. Enter PayDivvy, a California-based startup that aims to make the whole process easier.
With support for electronic billing from more than 5,000 different service providers, allows users to pay, send or share individual and group bills through a simple online and mobile interface. To split any bill, users can create a group on the free site — such as a set of roommates, for example — and then create a “divvy” for each shared expense, such as rent. It’s automatically assumed that all divvies are split up equally, but that can be adjusted by the user creating them. Either way, when a divvy comes due, each participating member makes his or her payment via Visa, MasterCard, American Express or bank account, and the site keeps track of who has paid and who hasn’t. ‘Pinging’ a member of a particular divvy sends a notification reminding that person to pay up, while wall notifications and peer pressure can play a role as well, the company says.
Meanwhile, much like PayPal, PayDivvy gives each user his or her own FDIC-insured account with bank-level security, and any money paid into those accounts can be withdrawn by the account holder as well. So, divvies can be used to reimburse a user who pays a bill up front — such as for a nice dinner out, for example — or they can be used to collect funds to be paid directly and jointly through PayDivvy to a utility or landlord, for instance. — Springwise

Creativity fascinates me because it’s always linked with other psychological characteristics that seem unpleasant. The 99 Percent discusses if crazy = creative.
Hand-Knit covers of Vogue Magazine. These fascinate me for the amount of skill involved. see more at Toxel.
2 Oscars ago I watched all of the animated shorts with some friends of mine. Logorama was my favorite, and my (correct) pick for the win!
