This landscape is not a photograph. Well it is, but it's a scale model rather than nature. Tuesday, January 26, 2010 | comments
This was on MAKE today. It's not a photograph but instead is a scale model. The artist writes:
"This model is simply made out of faux fur (fields), cotton (clouds) and sifted tile grout(mountains). The perspective is forced as in all of my images, and the lighting effect was created by simply shifting the white balance."
Colored Pencil Time! Sunday, January 24, 2010 | comments
In other colored pencil news, my dad linked the very cool Prismacolor colored pencils color chart to me. Go to their website to check out their whole color chart. It's pretty impressive.
First I was impressed, then I looked closer and I was really impressed Saturday, January 23, 2010 | comments
1) 51 things in my room. This thing has over 7000 video responses and over 2 million views. It's stupid yet at the same time kinda cool. I get the feeling that everyone that made a video response was like "yeah yeah, ms boxxy lookalike, I see your stuff" and then found themselves making their own little video a few minutes later. It's like Seth Green in Idle Hands except instead of strangling people without being able to control it, you find yourself posting Youtube videos without power to stop yourself.
2) I'll let Brett Elrich educate you on the similar practice of Haul Videos [click on thumbnail below to be taken to video in new window]:

As posted on Joystiq, this girl (well, she's 21) recently got into the Guinness Book of World Records for having the largest Pokemon collection at over 12000 items. In fact, she says that since it was counted, the number is now up to 13,400 items sprawled through her mom's house. It took her 13 years to amass this collection (so a little more than 1,000 Pokemon things per year).
I think if I had a collection and had the 10 or so Snorlaxes that she has in the upper right hand corner, I would say 'ok, that's enough Snorlaxes and Mudkips now. Think the next thing I will put money toward will be an apartment of my own' "
Telegraph.co.uk also has a small article on Lisa Courtney's Pokemon Center Europe and how it takes over the entirety of her mom's house.
The problem with Craigslist Wednesday, January 20, 2010 | comments
So far I've had one post stay alive long enough to make it off the front page of results. Within 24 hours of being online, that post got me 4 calls/emails and 1 application, so it drives me to keep trying, but I can't seem to replicate that posting's success. I emailed Craiglist and they haven't responded.
Yet at the same time, somehow miscategorized spam posts like "Yòu can Öwn a home" go unflagged. Not to sound paranoid, but it would seem that someone is out to get me and the unfortunate thing is that if anyone flags anything, it just gets taken right down so there's not much I can do except hoping that next time I put a post online, my nemesis is on lunch.
edit: Tried with 5 more listings. All flagged and deleted. Updated image.
edit2: I'm up to 20 posts in the past 60 days that don't last an hour.

Sometime that evening he must have brokered some sort of late night sale. He started referring to his apartment as gis condo and told us that maintenance isn’t allowed to go into his apartment at night. We told him that they don't, but he says two men were captured on surveillance camera.
This may be related to last week when he informed us that someone had broken into his apartment [a.k.a. a Plexiglas panel on the storm door started to come loose].
I wish we had some sort of family contact number or something for him.
The image below is the reported origin of the internet's favorite phrase for disgust. As the NSFW video explains, some people in China got a hold of the English bootleg for Episode III and wrote their own subtitles track that was less than exact.

From Wikipedia: "The rules of the church — the Ordnung — must be observed by every member. These rules cover most aspects of day-to-day living, and include prohibitions or limitations on the use of power-line electricity, telephones, and automobiles, as well as regulations on clothing."
