Vader Project


What a great series idea. It’s such a cultural icon now that I’m surprised it hasn’t happened in the past. Lots of great stuff… check it out. (Link below photos)

Strangley Beautiful - Sushi Cam


Ignore the American couple that decided to do this, but watch as the camera goes around the whole sushi bar, kitchen, and back.

speed reading


I always thought the way I read items that weren’t very interesting was cheating… but apparently it’s called speed reading. Kim Roach wrote a spot on ZenHabits about speed reading, and it’s rather great. It talks a bit about how to drop the inner-monologue, in attempt to soak as much information as possible. She introduces Spreeder, which helps focus your speed reading ability. If you’re reading an article, copy/paste it into Spreeder and practice.

By simply learning how to process information at a more rapid rate, you’re not only going to be able to move through books more quickly, but you will also be able to comprehend and process more of what you have read.

Over Clock Your Reading Speed

StarCraft 2 - Is real.


It’s unfuckingbelievable, and I’ve never been so stoked about a game in my life. The trailer gave me chills. :\

StarCraft II has some big shoes to fill - is there added pressure in developing a follow-up to one of the most beloved games of all time?
We recognize that the bar is set pretty high, but this type of pressure is not new to us. Warcraft III had to follow in the footsteps of Warcraft II, and Diablo II had to follow the original Diablo. Creating a StarCraft game that’s bigger and better than the original is definitely a big challenge, but it’s one that we fully intend to meet and exceed.

Starcraft 2

Go. Now.

Stuntman… The Game of Loading


So my buddy Caius sent me a link this morning to, which is an advergame by unilever for that deodorant campaign that’s years old. Remember the one where the stuntman would do crazy shit because the deodorant kept him cool and not-so-spicy? Yeah, that one.


The loading is ridiculous, but the site is rather nice. All video, high detail, but poor interaction. Let it load, it’s some what worth it. After it loads… there’s more loading so prepare yourself. It was made by Grupo W, so talk to them about the loading.


Nike Cosplay


So Nike Japan has realeased a new Nike ID… the Nike Cosplay Outfit. Customize your costume, just like you would a pair of sneakers. It’s amazing. Their ad campaign is really brilliant too:

Tyger - Guilherme Marcondes


“Tyger” is a short film by Guilherme Marcondes.

Every year, Cultura Inglesa funds a few cultural projects for their festival. This project was one of the three selected for 2006.

It is stellar. The illustrations, photography/cinematography, motion, music, everything.
