Or is it? Want to see how you can take this doodle and make it into fifteen inspired creations (some with naked women but most clothed)? Check it out here. Continue reading

Sneakers are a big thing these days y'know. It's an industry unto itself but personalizing your sneeks doesn't always mean having to blow a couple hundred bucks on a new set. Instead, you can just tie them up differently. Continue reading

I was at a jazz club last night. I was sitting with some new members at the club and they were being wished all the best by one of the volunteers. The band was on stage and they were cooking. Everyone was having a great time...and then it happened. Shhh! Continue reading

Check out Life Sack. It's an incredible reusable sack that comes filled with corn flour. When the flour is used up the sack then can be used to purify water using the sun. What's more incredible is that the inventors of the Life Sack even built in straps similar to a backpack so the user can carry the water. Ten thumbs up for an amazing idea! Continue reading

If you're anything like me the first time I saw this photo you're probably really confused right now.The picture above is a photograph. It's not a painting mixed into a photograph... it's an actual photograph of an older gentleman painted to look as though he's a painting. It screws with your mind though doesn't it. Continue reading

Once in a while you come across something that is so perfectly done, you have to just say, "Bravo!" In the case of the world's largest skateboard, I just had to follow it up with a laugh. Continue reading

When you only have 300 sq. feet for your apartment in downtown Hong Kong, it's important to think about how you're going to use it. This inventive fella has made his small space into an incredibly effective living area complete with movie room, bathtub and kitchen. Wow! Continue reading

Here's a question that I'd like to hear your opinion on: can jazz stand on it's own? I LOVE jazz but I know it's not everyone's cup of tea. Ke$ha isn't my cup of tea but I tolerate it because my kids crank it up on their iPods every now and then. But even though I'm passionate about pure jazz I'm also very comfortable giving jazz credit for the music it has grown into. Continue reading

Where is it written that food you buy on the street or at a festival has to be greasy and gross? Nowhere, that's where. So when I came across this concept called MuvBox from Montreal I thought to myself, "Well that makes sense!" Not only is this food vendor portable but it's able to make food that ISN'T hamburgers and hot dogs. MuvBox makes lobster rolls and wood fired pizza. Continue reading

I'm a fan of creative pan handlers. I remember one pan handler I encountered in Vancouver who approached me and asked me for a $10,000 cheque so he could "save some wildlife or something" he quipped. "But if you can't afford that kind of commitment maybe you could give me $15 so I could get some dry cleaning done". He was filthy and I laughed my ass off. Needless to say, I emptied my pocket of change into his hand. Continue reading

How could a band sell 30 million records worldwide and still be voted "The worst band in the world" by readers of The Word magazine in the U.K.? Clearly there's something happening here that needs some 'splaining. So I decided to shine the "dfrnt light" on Nickelback to give a brand new perspective to the phenomena that they've created. Continue reading

I have to admit... I'm not a big fan of bugs. Then again, I never saw them like this before. Talk about dfrnt! Some of these photos actually make bugs and lizards and other creepy crawlys look "cute". Yeah, I said it... "cute". Continue reading

via designyoutrust.com The year was 1980. Barry Obama was 19 years old and a 20 year old photographer named Lisa Jack took a roll of film of him. Which leads me to my question: what are you doing today that will lead to extraordinary things in your future? The answer is simple. Everything. Continue reading

Thanks Dave. I lost track of time :)
Toggle Commented May 29, 2010 on My iPad story at The Differents
When I walked into Westworld Computers, there were only about five customers in the store. Three of them were senior citizens. I thought to myself, "Isn't THAT interesting?" They were all there for iPads. How weird was that? But then I thought to myself, "It makes sense because that's who see the benefits of something so simple." Continue reading

Frank Sinatra once said, "People often remark that I'm pretty lucky. Luck is only important in so far as getting the chance to sell yourself at the right moment. After that, you've got to have talent and know how to use it.” In other words, luck might get you the chance but you still have to prove yourself. Your sentence is something you can prove. It's a unique snapshot that says, "This is who I am and I can confidently prove it anytime." Your sentence doesn't brag. It states the precise truth. Continue reading

My friend Angela sent me this link because she thought that the man being interviewed loves what he does as much as I do. I think she's right. I'm going to go to this place but if you can't make it down to the store in person, they have a website. www.sodapopstop.com Continue reading
