design freak universality

Definately design freak, not intellectual.
Ok, so I'm just your regular design freak. Other people also organize their books by color and size.

Movie Review: War (2007)

Review on Sept 25th??? I've got sources.

So Jet Li supposedly did his last action movie with Fearless (kinda sucked) ....then along come War. WTF?!

Some good moves by the old boy, but age has taken its toll. Even a slow Jet Li is great to watch. Jason Statham does great action, but is just naturally slow so you don't expect more from him.

Surprisingly the story is good. The action is great. Worth watching especially if you paid less than regular ticket price (hint).

elitist bullshit...literally

Check out this elitist bullshit. So let met get this straight they claim that :
"Ranchers really have a unique role in society and this little institute is trying to ratchet that up" yet "The class size is kept small to ensure the institute remains elite".

I just love how they compare it to an MBA...more elitist bullshit

carbon fiber..mmmmm

Today I made two carbon fiber key chains.

1) mix epoxy with hardener
2) lay down a sheet of fiber on a mold
3) drip epoxy onto fiber in drops
4) spread it out
5) lay down another layer on top of the first one
6) repeat 3-5
7) put on top of mold
8) put into a press or clamp it down
9) bake
10) pop it out
note: mold must be coated in release chemicals

Curing crackberry prayer pain

I need to justify keeping the Corbusier lounge chair. New use: I can read my RSS feeds on Google Reader via my HTC Touch all while lounging on my Corbusier.

HTC Touch + Corbusier + WiFi = aggregate justification

Carbon Fiber Fabrication

Heads up: Tomorrow I am taking a class in carbon fiber fabrication. I will try to shoot video for it.

Wants, Needs, Good Design

I've been on a crusade to ebay/craigslist/donate everything I don't need. Bookshelf...emptied and craigslisted. Boxes or pack-rat-ness...gone. Old textbooks....gone. HP 48G that was part of a scholarship....ebay'd. Scanner from the days of 3.5"...donated. ThinkPad.....ebay'd. Corbusier.....couldn't make myself sell it.....I am weak....

Then on treehugger I see this:from Normal Design.

Then that links me to Fuji TV's New Design Paradise. Ironic, for the third time I started listening to my Pimsleu Japanese files. Alas, that is all for not. Because it seems Fuji doesn't have English directions pointing to online video. Yeah, thats taking a big assumption that they would put that online. I searched on YouTube, Google Video, etc... Please, someone help me spend money on crap I don't need.

you know you are a design addict when... have vivid dreams that include choosing between burl wood and birds eye maple for a modern design.

I'm itching for the next design contest.
