I think I could actually enjoy doing this, at least for the first fifteen minutes.

To each their own app vice.



In Europe, the most downloaded iPhone app is music detecting Shazaam, in the United States it's the facebook app, in the U.K. it's the iPint App. Hmm...

Deep thoughts on the Jersey Shore

http://www.tvgasm.com/shows/images/modelsoftherunway/season1/11.19.09/Jersey%20Shore.jpg

Enjoying Jersey Shore "hinges not on our ability to identify with them but on our ability to distinguish ourselves from them... as though we were anthropologists secretly observing a new tribe through a break in the trees." [The New Yorker]

I love how all these highbrow magazines and newspapers now feel a need to explain the general public's fascination with the off-orange antics of the Jersey Shore. While I'm no Jersey Shore guidette myself, I do feel it's a bit offensive to treat these people as if they are some sort of primitive wild things caged in a shore house for our ongoing pontification.

These are people I say. People capable of feelings and perhaps even thoughts. Snookie's and Paulie's hair alone has taken years of training, practice and dare I say it artistic skill.

Cavemen prove to be metrosexuals

"The first convincing evidence for neanderthal "body paint" has been discovered dating back some 50,000 years. Shells containing pigment residues believed to be make-up containers were uncovered at two sites in Murcia province, Spain. It is the first time such strong evidence has been found to suggest that neanderthals mixed and used decorative make-up."

Perhaps, we haven't evolved as much as we think. Curious indeed.

Getting geeks all hot and bothered

LA based Bordello presents Star Wars Burlesque, perhaps a perfect combination of naughty and nerdy. I get the Princess Leia appeal, Jubba the Hutt not so much. Whatever tickles your pickle I guess. Check out more here

Amazing Infoscapes

CES 2010: Intel Infoscape blasts new Core i7 graphics from DVICE on Vimeo.

Two 7-foot screens, displaying 576 cubes hooked up to 20,000 info sources, including 20 live video feeds. Touch one of the cubes and an infobox displaying that content tumbles forward. This is the kind of stuff that sends techie hearts aflutter.

Sculptures with a little bit of attitude

Amusing sculptures by Nathan Mabry have some fun with an often all too serious medium.

A look inside.



Simple. Straight the point. Digging these from a visual perspective, would probably dig it even more if I had some semblance of athleticism.
