When the last dinner-party guest leaves…

…my first thought is always I wish I could give a hug of borderline-creepy duration to the person who invented the dishwasher.

IGEPA’s recycled world

Belgian design studio Coming Soon created a series of insects for IGEPA Benelux. They created beautifully stunning insects by mixing used and recycled paper.

Nice.

 Ocean Kitchen

Dutch designer Robert Kolenik has combined this kitchen island with a fully functional aquarium.

The large aquarium is topped with an L-shaped slab of Corian that effortlessly lifts up at the press of a button, giving you access to the top of the tank. And while the piece may look minimal, the Ocean Kitchen comes complete with hidden storage that helps keep your space organized. Each aquarium is limited edition and customized based on where it’s installed. For fans of tropical fish, this could be the perfect addition to your home.

Awesome.

Turkish Airlines Euroleague Epic Pool Dunk

What makes this spot awesome is that the entire 30 second ad is shot in one take. It took 22 attempts from Euroleague ballers Shawn James, Kyle Hines, Robin Benzing and Sergio Rodriguez. Crispin Porter + Bogusky London’s was behind the new Turkish Airlines spot that builds up to an amazing aqua-dunk.

Yes, It’s an ad. But I still love this.

Jimmy Fallon, Billy Joel, and an iPad app: just watch. 

This just showed up on Digg today, and… awesome. A skill I envy and will never ever have.

My wife banned me from any further mocking of her cats on social media. My life’s not interesting enough to have anything else even remotely interesting to say, so I guess I’ll just sign off for good.

Crap… so tempted…

90% of data in the world today was created in the past two years.

Sigh… decades of my life have been spent living mostly in ignorance.
