Ate this cake the other day, it was really nice. It was for a birthday, so there was a reason for the lavish cake.
What we're not sure of, is how do they make the amazing patterns on the sponge?

If anyone knows the truth, let us know please.
Maybe we should just ask Fallon or Skoda.

Power To The Masses!

This post may be old news now, but we feel that this exciting breakthrough is well worth a mention as it could change the way that we use computers, our consumption rates and also the fate of electric cars. Read this for further information...


Saw this today on the Guardian site, it's created using Brushes on the iPhone.

It's made us think about the notion of masterpieces. We had a debate a while ago, wondering why we hardly hear about modern masterpieces, there's loads of work in the Tate modern, but nothing is really described as a modern masterpiece. Besides, we aren't really fans of what is considered contemporary art.

Maybe, masterpieces are dependent on the context of when they are made. Lots of paintings were created a long time ago, that will forever be considered masterpieces. Does that mean that the masterpieces of our time, should use technology that is specific to what we use now.

In this case, the work linked above by Jorge Colombo could be considered a modern masterpiece. His skill in creating pictures on a tiny screen using his fingers, that could easily have been created by an ab
stract artist with a brush, show huge amounts of skill. So could it be that we just need to push the limits of current technology? Masterpieces on canvas are gone, we should now explore other possibilities.

Wish We Had This When We Were Kids

The genius people at Total Immersion have developed their product to the next level. We've been following these guys since we fist saw Augmented Reality during our days at Contagious for Radio 1's 'Band in your hand.' They have just realeased some work with Topps Baseball cards that kick the crap out of those old football cards that we used to collect. It's such a clever way of taking an out-dated product and reinventing it for the current generations.

Also, whilst on the subject of AR, this work for Lego is awesome.

Topps cards work via Contagious mag.

Friendly Kitchen

In our otherwise messy kitchen, we now have this gem. Thanks to housemates Chris & Chris for the new addition.

This Is Reality

Nice Ad by the Coen bros is below, it's direct and hopefully a brutal kick in the face to the coal industry. It is all in aid of 'The Reality Coalition' which has a very nice website, with lots of information to help the likes of us wise up to how we get our energy. We can't really do the cause the justice it deserves, so please check out the website. Although we hope that this at least goes some way to raising the profile of the cause.

The Bacon Explosion, it's something we saw during DM2 and have finally managed to get round to posting. The only way to describe it is a lump of meat, that seems more like torture. It reminds us of the kind of meal you'd get at an all you can eat rib shack and whilst we're a fan of ribs, the Bacon explosion is a bit too much.

Anyway, it's kind of scary the amount that people can eat.


We like this blog a lot, it's called 'Snacks & Shit'. It's all about rap lyrics, and shows just how stupid some of the writing can be.

It's a really good read.

Catch Up

Back log from DM2, few posts to lay down. First, the notorious David after dentist, and Christian Bale. For our own self amusement.


Anyone else notice the similarities between Skittles' new web-integrated website (above) and American Digital agency, Modernista!'s website (below) which has been live for quite some time? Whilst Skittles do pull off certain aspects well, for instance the YouTube channel, most of it is lacking and is a disappointing rip-off unfortunately...
