The Ultimate Golf Simulator

Move over Tiger Woods! I was on holiday this week visiting family in my hometown. Part of my time at home always includes visits to some of the most remarkable golf courses. There is nothing better than strolling on the pristine grass at the Augusta National. It’s the only time I check my shoes for dirt before walking on the grass. Then I thought, what would someone do if they wanted this experience every day? Guess what? You can! Check out this groundbreaking indoor golf […]

All Hail The Mario Theme Tune!

The Mario theme tune is something that has invaded my life since I first played on my NES.  The duel cart with duck hunt and Mario Bros – you remember! This tune has been so influential that I even find myself humming it randomly, and it seems I am not alone in this.   We all know Mario Bros is a bit of a phenomenon, and even today it lives on strong with actually great games (recommend Galaxy on the Wii, it was AWESOME).  So what […]

Podcasting 101

One of the many ways I share information is via Podcasting.  What is a Podcast?  You often hear or read the word but what is it? A podcast is a series of digital media files, either audio or video, that is released episodically and downloaded through web syndication. The mode of delivery is what differentiates podcasts from other ways of accessing media files over the Internet, such as simple download or streamed webcasts: special client software applications known as podcatchers (like iTunes, Zune, Juice or […]

SteamPunk’d Mac Mini

Found a site dedicated to Steampunk’d theme. The Steampunk’d workshop.  The site houses different gadgets and how they were made.  What is Steampunk’d? Various modern utilitarian objects have been modded by enthusiasts into a pseudo-Victorian mechanical “steampunk” style. Example objects include computer keyboards and electric guitars. The goal of such redesigns is to employ appropriate materials (such as polished brass, iron, and wood) with design elements and craftsmanship consistent with the Victorian era. What caught my attention is the design made by Dave Veloz.   He […]

Worlds Most Expensive Commercial Ever

I have seen this before on TV and came across it again. However, it’s a mystery to me how everyone keeps on going about how it took 606 takes and re-takes to get it right before they could use it. It allegedly cost $6.2 million to create this 90 second clip as well. Just right there is the give away. I can understand that it is the most expensive, that much I can agree on. But, that it should be real and setup as a […]

Have You Tried Seadragon? Demo It Here!

On the main page of the Seadragon website they say it all, “The aim of Seadragon is nothing less than to change the way we use screens, from wall-sized displays all the way down to cell phones…” From what I have seen, they may very well succeed. I was introduced to Seadragon through, of all things, an iPhone app. It was the last place I thought I would find a Microsoft technology demonstrator. So what is Seadragon? It is a new method for viewing and […]

How to make a Tea Towel Chicken

My kids love this, and regularly pester me to make them the chicken from the tea towel.  Its not some sort of miracle, but more like some kind of ancient tea towel origami. It involves skill, practice and patients but its something all dads must know and a great way to bring life to that Dungeons and Dragons party. If anything it brings me entertainment, especially when my kids freak out and I chase them round the kitchen… small things small minds eh? Someone had to say […]

Social Media in Plain English

Sometimes the best way to illustrate a topic is via video, where people who hate to read long text filled posts or articles.  You Tube is one great site to check out cool information. The word Social Media has been the buzz word for quiet sometime now and yet others still do not quiet get it. Here is video made by Common Craft.  A simple story that illustrates the forces shaping social media. This video comes in an unbranded “presentation quality” version that can be […]

Design Your Own Flip Flops

Havaianas makes a splash with this year’s Make Your Own Havaianas (MYOH). With more straps, soles and pins to choose from, there are endless ways to personalize your flip-flops. The only limitation is your imagination. This year’s MYOH goes POP ART with pin designs ranging from lomo cameras, vintage tellies, vibrant jeepneys and ice cream carts to other lifestyle frills. I love flip flops, I think the fact that I have 10 pairs makes me a big fan. I like the variety that they have […]

How to Fold a T-Shirt in 2 Seconds

Alright, I think I managed to find the holy grail, the very core of awesomeness. I think I even dare to say that I have uncovered the coolest and best time saver in the world. At least for me. I am a guy that sports a collection of at least a hundred t-shirts and washing them and folding them is truly a time consuming endeavour. However, with this new technique I will probably save myself enough time to even watch a little bit of TV. […]

Why Do Some People Look Like Their Dog?

Have you ever noticed that some people look like their dog? Why is that? I’ve been pondering that question ever since I was six years old and fascinated that my Grandpa looked exactly like his weiner dog. When an article came out in the New York Times about this topic yesterday, I decided it was finally time to research this phenomenon. The real question becomes, do people choose dogs that look like them or do the dogs and the people morph into a resemblance over […]

Color me pretty | Les Paul Guitars

With the passing of Les Paul, Rock ‘n Roll’s legend and creator of the Les Paul brand of Gibson guitars, I want to share the colorful side of Paul’s famous guitars. We have a well kept secret here in Seattle, a Gibson studio, tucked away in the Pioneer Square neighborhood, south of downtown. The studio is generally not open to the public, however I got to take a tour a few months ago, during a Thursday art walk. The walls are filled with colorful guitars, […]

Insane Illustration

Not a day goes by when I don’t spend a little time browsing through my RSS Feed.   Presidia Creative caught my eye with post dedicated to an illustrator called Dan Dos Santos.  The title of the post was 54 Incredible Illustrations by Dan Dos Santos. Surely there couldn’t be 54 “incredible” illustrations, but wow I was completely blown away.  So if you want a little inspiration, or perhaps you want to see how bad you are at drawing, its time to tip your hat to Dan.
