… even your “it’s broken” page is broken.

I have no idea what to say about this. It’s an iPhone charging cord shaped in the form of an ultra-realistic umbilical cord with the phone embedded in a throbbing placenta.
Really. Click on the link if you want to see more, including pulsating video.
This is photojournalism at its absolute best. Raw portraits of soldiers before, during, and after their deployments to Iraq. Powerful enough on their own, but when combined with the near-forgotten art of real journalism – recording the thoughts of the subjects and letting them stand on their own – this moves into the realm of truly outstanding. Everyone who tries to understand anything about the Afghan conflict should start with this and look long and hard at the eyes in the “after” photos.
The folks at Sincerely, Ink are running a promotion on February 7, 2012 to give all of the users of their partner apps their a free postcard. Free, as in beer. No lie. Just use any of the apps listed here (regular readers of this blog will recognize Colour Effects, Halftone, and Postagram as recurring favorites) and you will be able to send one awesome postcard on the company’s dime.
And that’s it. No snarky comments, no half-baked witticisms, none of the dreck you I usually fill space with. Just something fun and free. So get busy and make someone’s day.
I have no illusions about my writing skill. I know that I am not one of the great wordsmiths of our generation – or, quite frankly, any generation – but I do have what I would consider a basic competence in this arena. However, limitations or no, there is absolutely nothing I could write that would even begin to let you know how stoked I am about this.
After months of hints and oodles of blurry might-be-real-might-be-not photos of supposed packaging and designs, the LEGO people have released the official images of the first sets of their Lord Of The Rings mini figures. To say that these are cool is probably the understatement of the century.
These are a total home run in every sense of the word. It’s a toss-up as to what is the single most awesome bit – the scowls on Boromir and Aragorn, the faceless void under the cowl of the ringwraith, or the groovy waistcoats on the hobbits.
And I must have, no matter what, a full-size print of this sweet Gollum “movie poster”. Wow.
Pearls Before Swine is the best comic strip in the newspapers today. I never saw the very first strip, but Stephan Pastis was awesome enough to repost it on his blog over the weekend. And it explains a lot.
A modern comedy in three acts:
Act 1: Twitter, October 18.
Act 2: Twitter, October 19.
Act 3: YouTube, November 8:
Can you juggle? Yeah? Can you solve Rubik’s Cube? Yeah? Can you do both at the same freaking time?
No description needed. It’s freaking CSI: Legoland!
