Let Your Darkside Out

resident01

Promotional shirts are so predictable – starchy-thick Hanes shirt with awkwardly-long-sleeves and a crunchy, doomed-to-crack decal.  But not the new one used to create buzz for the latest Resident Evil Wii game.  Although traditional at first glace with it’s “Let Your Darkside Out” logo, once the shirt is pulled up over your face you are instantly transformed into a zombie (or a gory Mardi Gras bead-beggar)!  Brilliant!

The creative developers behind Macro | Sea are breathing new life into Brooklyn’s urban landscape by transforming retired dumpsters into public swimming pools! Construction Chic!  And what’s even cooler?  … the company’s mission statement: Macro | Sea is a company created to do projects that we find interesting.

Flick Me

The Flickr Collection is a collection of original, handpicked Flickr photos that are hosted on Getty Images – an industry site dedicated to stock photography.  The collection of images reflect the passion of a community of photographers worldwide, featuring uniquely personal images with an authenticity rarely found in stock images.

The coolest part is that from this photo library, users can create image clouds and browse other peoples clouds as part of a new initiative aimed to inspire and foster creativity.  These clouds can and are of all types of subject matter.  This is my cloud… a reflection of how I’m feeling today.  Sort of like a vision board but interactive, prettier and more stimulating to make.  And did I mention easy-as-pie… oh, how I do love pie!  🙂

My Gift to You

Picture 5

… for being loyal while I was on hiatus!

Ever since my mom found the Maxine greeting card from Hallmark that read, “If you don’t have anything nice to say, come sit next to me,” it has been our motto.  Shoot – why the hell not?  I mean, snarky gossip is twice as awesome as eaves dropping which even better than people watching which obviously trumps US Weekly… and everybody loves US Weekly, so I think I’ve made my point!

So where is one to get their fill of stuff they shouldn’t hear?  Well, I’ll tell you… cuz I’m a giver… rated by inappropriate excellence:

  1. FML (F-My-Life): Where every day folks share the stories that make them say, “F-My-Life!”
  2. Fireland on Twitter:  A dude named Joshua Green Allen who’s one-liners will make you more uncomfortable than watching Borat in NYC’s Diamond District.
  3. Texts From Last Night: A collection of texts that prove your friends have your best interest at heart when they take your phone away from you at the end of a debaucherous night.
