This Guy Has My MacBook →
On March 21, 2011, my MacBook was stolen from my apartment in Oakland, CA. I reported the crime to the police and even told them where it was, but they can’t help me due to lack of resources. I’m currently working with the city council. Meanwhile, I’m using the awesome app, Hidden, to capture these photos of this guy who has my MacBook. Genius.

Counterprotesters confront Westboro Baptist Church... →
Hours before President Barack Obama led the nation’s Memorial Day observances at the Tomb of the Unknowns, three members of the Westboro Baptist Church were challenged by others who disagreed with them — including members claiming to be from the Ku Klux Klan. You know you’re the Scum of the Earth when even the KKK don’t like you.
Michael Jackson vs Mr. Bean →
The lesson? Don’t steal MJ’s hat.
True Cyan →
True “Cyan”. Usually most people find it an ugly color, or just an ordinary light blue. BUT! Computers and TVs dilute the actual appearance of cyan and when you see it, its fucking awesome. That’s one hell of a blue.

I know most of my followers don’t care about this sort of stuff, but this site is a great guide to the various different types of High-End Audiophile vinyl available. A invaluable resource. I’ve learned a lot from this one page alone.

'Family Guy’ Pleads For Emmy Love →
For years, Family Guy producers had been asking for, sometimes even demanding, Academy votes in the show’s Emmy mailers. They’ve now switched to begging. Here’s a tip: try actually being funny for once.
Canon Theatre - Wikipedia →
The Canon, or as I like to call it, The Pantages has always been and remains my favourite theatre in Toronto. But I had no idea just how controversial and fascinating its history was. After having read the entire article I now more than ever want to make a documentary about this place. And man, what a visual treat would that be!

Anatomy of a Mashup: Definitive Daft Punk... →
This visualisation of the song “Definitive Daft Punk” by Cameron Adams dissects a mashup in realtime to show you how each of the 23 parts contributes to the greater whole. Set your faces to stunned. Ps. you’re going to want to run this in Chrome or Safari. No. Seriously. You’re going to want to.
Why You Hate Comic Sans →
Everyone loves to hate Comic Sans. The child-like handwriting font is so infamous, there is a movement to try to ban it. Mention its name to the common layman (aside from a preschool teacher), and you will likely get a chuckle, mention it to a trained designer, and you’ll get a look of disgust. But what exactly makes Comic Sans so horrible? In short: it’s ugly. In my humble opinion.

The Hipstamatic Combination Chart →
As a heavy user of Hipstamatic I wanted to make a chart compiling all the different combinations available to use. The images were shot on Monday 16th May 2011 and were taken with the most up-to-date version of the app at that time Hipstamatic 210 which included the free Buckhorst H1 Lens and the Bondi HipstaPak. There were 1456 different combinations altogether. I started shooting my R2D2 at...

Sesame Street’s Bert sits down with comedian and Saturday Night Live cast member, Andy Samberg, to talk about life, literature, cuisine and of course, socks. Everybody’s favourite obsessive compulsive, Bert, interviews Andy Samberg. Also, can we just talk about how you cannot see ANY of the wires controlling Bert anymore?! Those Muppeteers are amazing.

Not only does Criterion release some of the greatest films of all time in best quality DVDs and Blurays imaginable, but their design is absolutely top notch. I think this is one of those few cases where it’s totally okay to judge a book (film) by its cover.

AIDS "cure" on the horizon? →
After a stem cell bone marrow transplant, doctors say his HIV, the infection which causes AIDS, was eradicated. His bone marrow donor was one of a very small percentage of people who are immune to HIV. He received a second bone marrow transplant after a resurgence of Leukemia, which he’s also since been cured of. It required a donor who was immune to HIV (of which there are very few in the...
The Art of Topless Dancing and Information Design →
“Content experts are special,” I told her. “They need to feel as though they have control. Make him happy, listen to him, let him be creative, compliment him, and then rein him in. Make him feel important, let him know you like his ideas. You’re there to support him. I know you don’t like it. Fake it if you have to.” Awkward silence filled the room. We were both thinking the same thing. Give...
$h*! My Dad Says Cancelled by CBS →
I want you to know that I’m proud of you. You didn’t put a bullet through Bin Laden but I’m proud of you. For my money, that right there should be reason enough to renew the show. Then again, real-life is way funnier than fiction. Seriously though, what’s with TV networks cancelling all the good new shows from this year (I’m pretty much only talking about Mr. Sunshine). Granted I...
Ranked: Woody Allen Films from Worst to Best →
Woody Allen has written and directed forty-one films in the last forty-five years, making him one of our most prolific auteurs. He’s also run the gamut between great and awful more perhaps than any other director. With his latest, Midnight In Paris, out this Friday, I sized up the man’s formidable body of work, listed here from worst to best. Forty-one films in forty-five years....
Restrictive copyright plays into music industry... →
The music industry is not in decline. In fact, the “total” music industry has grown from roughly $1.26-billion in 1998 to just over $1.4-billion today. Worldwide, the growth has been even more impressive, especially in the fast-growing economies of Brazil, Russia, India, China and South Africa So it turns out the RIAA are big liars. Surprised? This is why we, as Canadians, must ensure our...
Seth MacFarlane Finally Gets Go-Ahead To Reboot... →
The Flintstones was an animated version of the popular 50s sitcom “The Honeymooners”. While it obviously has become a pop-culture icon in its own right, why in God’s name would you want to bring it back? Unless McFarlane plans to make it an animated version of Family Guy… oh wait. Besides, hasn’t he ruined comedy enough for this generation? Why can’t he leave...

28 years ago today, the Moonwalk made it’s debut at Motown 25 Jackson stated at the time that he was disappointed in his performance; he had wanted to remain on his toes longer than he had. Regardless of how Jackson felt the performance went, this remains to this day one of the most important moments in the history of popular music, and solidified Jackson’s status as a...

First official posters for The Adventures of Tintin: Secret of the Unicorn (left: int’l, right: domestic) — the Steven Moffat/Edgar Wright/Joe Cornish-penned, Steven Spielberg/Peter Jackson-helmed motion capture adaptation of Hergé’s classic comic strip series. Honestly, I don’t think I could be more excited for this movie. And I hate MoCap 3D movies.
Scientists cure cancer, but no one takes notice →
Since the pharmaceutical companies won’t develop this, the article says other independent laboratories should start producing this drug and do more research to confirm all the above findings and produce drugs. All the groundwork can be done in collaboration with the Universities, who will be glad to assist in such research and can develop an effective drug for curing cancer. If the...
