Alone With Everybody

the flesh covers the bone
and they put a mind in there
and sometimes a soul,

and the women break vases against the walls
and the men drink too much
and nobody finds the one

but keep looking
crawling in and out of beds.
flesh covers the bone
and the flesh searches

for more than flesh.

there's no chance at all:
we are all trapped
by a singular fate.
nobody ever finds
the one.

the city dumps fill
the junkyards fill
the madhouses fill
the hospitals fill
the graveyards fill

nothing else fills.


Everybody loves patterns

If you want to play for while creating stuff, this is an easy game.

An oportunity for war

This is a lock between mainstream culture
and subcultures:the "whores" and the "geeks"
come together to do "whores of warcraft" fast
on the very time consuming, mind numbing
videogame "craftwar".
The movie looks really funny.


Butt naked

I praise girls that take their sexuality as a celebration. This photographer has an extensive work on that premise on flikr. I like her sensibility, but sometimes the macabre takes things into scary land...Maybe an artistic statement. I prefer some division in the level of aggression suggested. I prefer the joy of naughtiness than the burden of deadful images. The images above are part of a series that find really sexy for its lightness. Anyhow, they are really committed artists to their kinkiness.

Burning Eno

When I got back home I found a message on the door
Sweet Regina's gone to China crosslegged on the floor
Of a burning jet that's smoothly flying
Burning airlines give you so much more
How does she intend to live when she's in far Cathay
I somehow can't imagine her just planting rice all day
Maybe she will do a bit of spying
With microcameras hidden in her hair
I guess Regina's on a plane a Newsweek on her knees
While miles below the curlews call from strangely stunted trees
The painted sage sits just as though he's flying
Regina's jet disturbs his wispy beard.
When you reach Kyoto send a postcard if you can
And please convey my fond regards to Chih-Hao's girl Yu-Lan
I heard a rumour they were getting married
But someone left the papers in Japan.
Left them in Japan.

Math is... long hair and fingernails!

I have to admit that I really appreciate the work of mathematicians. I secretly would like to have a math club to do some hardcore divisions. This story is about a Russian mathematic that is kind of a hermit and won a price for his work, but he prefers only to explain his achievements rather than to celebrate the explaining.

"He looked like Rasputin, with long hair and fingernails," Robert Greene of UCLA told The New York Times. When he spoke at Harvard, Perelman declared he would sacrifice some clarity and linearity for "liveliness," which apparently meant hardly writing down a thing during the entire lecture. (After, one mathematician thanked him for wasting so little chalk.) When the press began showing up at his appearances, Perelman packed it in and went home, though for the next year or two he maintained a correspondence with his peers, answering every question fired at him.Perelman's colleagues eventually ballooned his elegant short story into something more like War and Peace—all told about 1,000 pages have been published thus far to explain Perelman's work on Poincaré, and the ultimate conclusion is that Perelman was right. (The verdict is still out on the geometrization conjecture.)

"[Perelman] is very focused on mathematics," Morgan said. "When the conversation is mathematical, he is quite open and approachable." But when the conversation about math turned to million-dollar prizes and Fields medals, Perelman went AWOL.


Shooting color

Non-Format has always blown my mind with their straight foward clean design. This time they blow my mind with color. Some ads for coke.

Eco-mean, dude!

Fake Forest makes eco-mean stuff.

“Eco-friendly” is how you feel when you buy something that seems good for the environment because it looks “green,” or the label has three bent arrows chasing each other in a triangular loop, or words like recycled, recyclable and natural, without defining what they mean. It's like, “Dude, I hope I'm saving the Earth!”

“Eco-mean” is how you feel when you stop hugging trees and start throwing rocks. Nah, not at the trees, but at companies that pose as your eco-friends instead of just explaining the materials used in their products and how they get produced from start to finish, so that people can make the most informed choices possible. It's like, “Dude, show me what you're made of!”

Fake Forest researches and designs products to have minimal impact on the Earth's resources. We consider and make known all ingredients, percentages, and processes.

Humor going global

This instance the Borat experiment is taken to the heartland of America, to of course make us laugh about the conventional, through the unconventional Kasahstani, Borat.


Images from my homeland

Alec Soth images are very similar to the cold and dark in Lynch's "eraserhead", not for that they fail to be sweet, hunting, and totally real. Beautiful images from the Missipi and Bogota.

Shift and the girls

If you like street fashion reports as much as I do, you can go to the link and look for the "girls on the street" archive.

Bunny rabbits in my laptop

I prefer the sticker I made for my laptop, but those may be to ephemeral for some people...:" this time we etched a very cool bunny infused Tsunami"


Type meets illustration

Marian Bantjes started working in the field of visual communication in 1983, and subsequently worked for 10 years as a book typesetter (that is her education). From 1993 to 2002 she owned and ran a design firm with a partner, with 2 to 12 staff members, creating the usual gamut of materials for a wide range of corporate, education and arts-organizations (that is her experience). since 2003 she has crossed the boundaries between design, illustration and typography and currently works in this zone, mostly for other designers (that is her experiment). she is also in her 4th year on the british columbia board of the society of graphic- designers of canada (GDC/BC), writes about design for the design website speak up, and teaches typography through emily carr institute in vancouver.

what very big teeth you have!


Trusting naugthy

Lately I have come to contemplate that photographers are mostly succesful -or not- thanks to the interaction with the models. This thought has become clear after finding so many and different styles of photo work that show lifestyles and perspectives of beauty. So what we see is not only a vision but a relation. The clue then is to know how to develop relationships that are kind of ephemeral yet forceful. Here is an example of the work by Craig Cowling.


Oriental details

Sometimes excelence is an understatement: Zoren and Minori work mixes photo with illustration, collage and digital manipulation (my favorite). Their work is just amazing! Fashion images spill color allure anywhere.


Some vision

Celebrity Status

Helvetica goes to the big screen.
Why? beacuse it represents the zeitgeist of type!


Sex sells

A cliché, but it is this time executed in a new way. This is a publication that has many different interpretations of porn images by graphic designers. The book is so sweet to look at that it is sold in Paul Smith boutiques as an extending of the "lifestyle". Cool looking, but the whole idea is to easy for me to give total credit to the "creatives"...But that is the clue "concept " behind porn: easy and kinky -this one more "clean" thanks to design-


Design Buddy

We are in the process of putting together work for the collective we have for an exhibition. Printed compositions of 30"by 48" will be on display.


Takagi Masakatsu

The work of artist Takagi Masakatsu is based on images and music. I see lots of psicodelia, this is alterated visual perceptions...interesting crazy expansive images with a superb use of color.
I found his work outside the Apple -mecenic- work(mf inv patron protection). Nowdays his work is sold even in the Itunes...excelent work nonetheless.
