Craig’s List is a pretty lame place to hang out. Or a really really terrible place even. But even on the greatest of days it doesn’t usually go well. And I know – I just sold my Xbox 360 out on Craig’s and dang it if I wasn’t worth it by a long shot. Sure, I got cash on the barrel head… but flip an egg is it a terribly weird place where the basest of humanity’s detritus hangs out. But occasionally Craig’s has a gem or two… or maybe just a gem. Anyway this lovely little post may single handedly make all of Craig’s chaos make sense… or if not make sense, make it worth it anyway. This was posted on Wednesday in the missed connections section of Craig’s List.
Conclusive Proof Facebook Doesn’t Delete Your Deleted Account Data – I guarantee you, in no uncertain terms… that when you delete your account Facebook definitely does not delete your information. There aren’t even TRYING to hide the fact that they know you intimately still…
Gorgeous Designs Inspired by the Ocean – I recently stumbled upon two different designers/artists that have used the ocean as their inspiration.
The first is Greg Klassen who creates tables, desks and conference tables with glass inserted in the middle. It is just phenomenal what Mr. Klassen is able to do with just wood and glass. It invokes ideas of rivers heading to the ocean.
A Peloton From the Inside – I like a good football game (Broncos possibly?) Or baseball even (Orioles much?). March Madness? I’m totally in. I don’t even care who’s made it to the round of 64. But, what about the World Cup? Wimbledon? Cricket in India? Or the Tour de France?
Stormtrooper and Darth Vader in this Starwars Frozen Remix I love StarWars. I have two daughters. Enough said. Do you wanna bombs some rebelllllssss?! Ok, byyyyee. hahah. Classic.
David OReilly and His Mountain – David OReilly of Her fame has created a video game. The game is ingeniously entitled MOUNTAIN, which is a mountain simulator. Which seems silly in the extreme, except that it is also brilliant. David was the designer of the video game imbedded within the movie Her. You know the one, the one with the annoying little kid that swears like a sailor? Yeah, that game. Mountain is his first actual video game, but if it brings his standard gorgeous design capabilities to it (which we think he has) then it should be a gorgeous experience.
OK Go Mind Blowing Music Video – This music video by Ok Go is fantastic. The band spent three weeks setting up the illusions and then they took over 50 takes to get it right. Its a single 4 minute cut and there are dozens and dozens of optical illusions queued one right after the other as the band members continue singing along as the illusions continue to land.
