Pretty simple template to make your own Hipster Logo.
Reminds me of the “hipster branding” tumblr feed.

DHL: Trojan Mailing

Friday, February 21st, 2014


I might have to give this the best and efficient means of marketing budget for an amazing outcome. Many copy cats to follow.
I do recall way back in college, I had to cover up the FREE FEDEX box logo when I shipped via UPS.

Amanda Palmer: The art of asking

Thursday, March 7th, 2013

A very inspirational outgoing talk by Amanda Palmer at TED this year! Simply Awesome lady.

“Don’t make people pay for music, says Amanda Palmer: Let them. In a passionate talk that begins in her days as a street performer (drop a dollar in the hat for the Eight-Foot Bride!), she examines the new relationship between artist and fan.

Alt-rock icon Amanda Fucking Palmer believes we shouldn’t fight the fact that digital content is freely shareable — and suggests that artists can and should be directly supported by fans”

One World Futabol Project

Wednesday, November 28th, 2012

Very cool project at OneWorldFutbol.com where they built  “a virtually-indestructible ball that never goes flat and never needs a pump. Our goal is to bring the joy of soccer and play to youth in disadvantaged communities so that children can be children no matter where they live.”

Making Play Power.

I already bought a few! Buy a yellow or blue one here…or just donate!
Watch some great videos of them trying to destroy it. (truck drives over, it, let a Lion play with it, stab it with a knife a few times, or all 3)

“Here’s to the Crazy One” Quote Poster

Thursday, May 10th, 2012

Awesome Letterpress Poster! Too bad they  are not available anymore.

“The now iconic quote debuted in a 1997 television commercial for Apple Computer. The text was said to have been partially written by then Apple CEO Steve Jobs (along with Rob Siltanen and Ken Segall). He embodied the characteristics in this quote arguably better than anyone in history. Today it lives on as a mantra for artists, inventors, entrepreneurs and innovators around the world.”

Caine’s Cardboard Arcade

Tuesday, May 1st, 2012

Did you ever invent with boxes and leftovers when you were younger? We’ll I certainly did and this video documenting 9 year old Cain certainly brought me back to those days, but back in those days, there was no Youtube, or internet….but if there was…something like the video above might have just happened.

After watching in  the delightful rather cheery video, go check out CainsArcade website, and help them raise money and others like Cain for future education. (they already have close to 200k!)


DO SOMETHING TODAY THAT YOUR FUTURE SELF WILL THANK YOU FOR!

Wednesday, April 25th, 2012

“DO SOMETHING TODAY THAT YOUR FUTURE SELF WILL THANK YOU FOR!”
I’m not sure who said this, but it is a quote I’ve come upon and will make a poster to put up on my wall to see everyday for now on!


Entertainment Gathering (EG) 2012: EG Everywhere

Tuesday, April 3rd, 2012

My favorite gathering is happening in beautiful Monterey CA next week at a magical gathering known as The EG Conference April 12-14.
If you take a peek at past and this years eclectic presenters, you’ll be as amused and curious as I am every year to attend this brain safari of wonder.
If your attending, please let me know, or pass this post around to friends that might be interested.

As a special extension to EG this year, they are offering the entire live web-stream of the event for $200, but they are also offering me a special link for friends at half price! Yup, $100 for a few days of live, provoking, entertaining, talks.

To get a hold of this special gift, go here and  learn more about EG Everywhere! You get to see all the spectacular talks live for $100 vs the $4000 ticket price!  Sign up, call your friends up, have a 2-3 day Salon at your house with food and drinks, and get inspired! Then perhaps decide if you can attend the actual conference to experience the rest of the magic!

Susan Cain: The power of introverts

Monday, March 5th, 2012

In a culture where being social and outgoing are prized above all else, it can be difficult, even shameful, to be an introvert. But, as Susan Cain argues in this passionate talk, introverts bring extraordinary talents and abilities to the world, and should be encouraged and celebrated.
