Thank you, Field Notes

Yesssssss! Another nice package showed up at my door, this time goodies from Field Notes (a DDC/Coudal product). Now let me start off by saying, I am a fairly early adapter in terms of new technologies and gadgets. I twitter from my Blackberry, and I’ve even updated my Facebook status using my Wii (just once, because I could). But there is no better feeling than jotting down ideas in a good old notebook with your favourite pen or pencil. I love it. Field Notes sent me over a stack of little notebooks. Beautifully simple packaging. Blank, lined, graph paper, several styles. Pencils, rubber bands, even a calendar. Thanks you guys, they will be put to good use!

    I find it remarkable that you receive such exciting gifts, it gives a gentleman ideas. I just recently found your very nice site and I’ve been going back over past entries and besides the above I saw the sunglasses recently and the Hush Puppies shoes not too long ago. It really makes me consider starting my own similar website in the hopes that I myself might one day receive such benefits. It would be too hard though, I figure after further thought. I have a different type of website already and that only requires a monthly update and yet still I find difficult there, so keeping on top of a site such as yours is near unimaginable.

    Anyway, to cut all my thoughts short here: your site is really great, you’re surely deserving of the gifts for all your hard work, and these Field Notes items are very nice looking, particularly the calendar.

Photoshopped Selfie Sticks Replace Guns in Popular Movies

Untitled-1

Been seeing a lot of these selfie stick images circulating the net recently and was trying to figure out where they were from. The image above, from Terminator (the best I’ve seen so far) was shared on Twitter last year. Since then a Tumblr has popped up called Guns Replaced with Selfie Sticks sharing similar images from popular movies, and it appears they take submissions. More images below.

Animation: Yeasayer “Silly Me”

yeasayer-newmedia

Another fantastic video by New Media Limited for Yeasayer. “Silly Me” is the prequel to “I Am Chemistry”, and both have a wonderfully strange animation style. Watch it over on Booooooom TV.
