This is great. I wish I’d had this video to refer people to when they ask me what being a designer means. That it’s more than graphic design or industrial design. You don’t need a beret or a drafting table; a compass or a set of paint brushes. It’s just telling a story. Also, this is an important video to refer to those egotistical designers, the ones who think people need to learn to use …

This won’t be news to most people who know me personally since I’ve been demanding people participate for the past couple months. That being said, I’m proud to announce my newest project: Have You Met Ted: The How I Met Your Mother Blog. I launched this site in the beginning of September and have been working on it ever since. I am a huge fan of the show so writing for the blog (all of …

I remember I was hammering on a fence in the west pasture when Papa approached. He was carrying a letter or something in his hand, and he looked worried.I continued to hammer as he came toward me. “Son,” he said, “why are you hammering on that fence? It already has plenty of nails in it.”“Oh, I’m not using nails, Papa,” I replied. “I’m just hammering.” With that, I returned to my hammering.
Papa asked me to …

I don’t know if this would be funny, quirky, and amusing or incredibly depressing. I, for one, don’t really need the knowledge that I am the same weight as a cloven farm animal.

Applebees has sliders on their menu. I think it’s safe to put a bullet in that trend and give it a proper burial. It had gotten to the point where you couldn’t pick up a cooking magazine without finding a recipe for “gourmet sliders”. Blame Daniel Boulud, blame Walter Anderson, blame whomever you want, I’m just glad the fad is over.
Now, before we’ve even had time to mourn the passing of this mediocre craze, a …

Rita, a multidisciplinary Montréal design studio, has created a new series of t-shirts:
Carry less. These T-shirts are printed with every day items and accessories, the way they’re worn. Our debut series, “Beverly Hills 1980s-style”, includes a classic Walkman, roller skates, Ray-Ban shades and luckily a holster, complete with a gun.
These are cooler than cool. I especially like the sunglasses shirt, it’s the simplest but seems to work the best.
T-shirts are available in the Rita Boutique …

The newest motion picture project from J.J. Abrams is creating a lot of hype online. The trailer is now up on Apple and it’s ominous, vague, and awesome. Home video footage of a going away party captures what seems like an earthquake followed by a deep growl. The camera man goes to the roof with the rest of the crowd in time to witness a major explosion that rains down shrapnel across the NYC skyline. …

This is really awesome. I can’t imagine how much work must’ve gone into this presentation. It’s also not just a little creepy.
PS. I’d embed the video but I don’t feel like updating the WordPress plugin at this time. Maybe later. You can just click the image to visit the College Humor page with the video then come back here and comment?
