I Hate Math

Posted: 30th June 2011 by affehaus in cultural, design, geek stuff

Always have…   However… that doesn’t prevent me from being able to appreciate the elegance of an equation.  Or, the creativity of applying equations to relate a story.   The marketing agency Revolve has taken this approach to bring awareness to Brain Candy Toys, and education toy and teacher resource distributor. I can’t wait to […]

Books as an Art Form

Posted: 30th June 2011 by 7ucyClark in book, design

Many people accumulate books that they will never read, either from a misplaced sense of ambition, or for the mere fact that the book is more decoration than occupation. I, for one, am pretty sure that I’ll never get through the Complete Works of Shakespeare that I’ve got holding down the far corner of my […]

and, In Keeping With a Theme…

As the great sleuth Dirk Gently maintained, all events are interconnected; it’s just that the threads that are not always evident. In a search for something completely unrelated to Star Trek, I found a Wikipedia entry for a television show titled Khan!, which has absolutely nothing to do with a character played by Ricardo Montalban.

Balance of Power

Too… many puns. Battle of the Kirks. I’m pretty sure that Chris Pine has the edge here… unless they’re allowed to use ego. In which case, it’s good the photo was snapped before Pine’s arm was. found via Topless Robot

well… there’s this, then

A monument in Bulgaria commemorating the republic’s ‘liberation’ at the hands of the Soviet Union has received an interesting make-over. The artist, calling himself Banksy of Bulgaria, has interpreted the figures as icons of American culture, both creative and corporate (I think Santa Claus sort of walks the beam between the two). The legend below […]

he has a brute squad designed by Ian Leino available at Tee Fury for a mere 10 florin… but only for another 5 hours (and counting…)

Pussies and Semantics

Posted: 25th June 2011 by affehaus in cultural

So… there’s this. Summer’s Eve, not satisfied with the contempt they earned from their Tracy Award winning print ad, has decided to  alienate the remainder of their customer base.  They’ve retained the services of Carlton the Cat to lead their crusade in supplanting the word “awesome” with “vaginal”. Now– on a personal front, I have […]

In Case of…

Normally, I eschew any kind of prejudiced or discriminatory attitudes… But in this circumstance, I’ll make an exception.   found via Super Punch

Bad Horse t-shirt

Posted: 24th June 2011 by 7ucyClark in cultural, design, geek stuff, things I need

The equine leader of the Evil League of Evil has been immortalized. T-shirt available at Qxm. A word of caution… one’s sexual orientation and degree of promiscuity may determine whether or not one claims the reward for Bad Horse’s capture.  Just sayin’ Also available: Evil League of Evil shirts. Very nice.

Pie-day

Posted: 24th June 2011 by 7ucyClark in food stuffs, review

Todays Pie: Rock Pie The crust was tasty, but regrettably, compromised.  During the baking process, cherry juice breached the crust floor and baked it onto the pie plate, making extraction a messy process*. The filling base was an egg-custard of a most extraordinary eggy and custardy quality. Two varietals of cherry were used to top […]
