Adrian Florea

I randomly stumbled upon this amazing little Stimpy made out of lego by Adrian Florea. I looked through his portfolio and was a little sad I couldn’t find a lego version of Ren. There are several cool looking robots on his flickr page but I’d really like to see more lego versions of cartoon characters!

Radiohead Vancouver was epic!

There is no photo for this post. I didn’t bring my camera, and no google image is going to do this any justice.

I just got home from the Radiohead show here in Vancouver and I am still in shock. It was incredible. I finally know now what everyone has been saying about Radiohead for years. I mean I have always liked them but I don’t think I ever really believed that OK Computer was one of the best albums ever or fully understood what all the hype was about. Until tonight.

I have seen the light. Radiohead really is the greatest band in the history of the universe. If you have experienced their live show I don’t know how you could possibly disagree with that statement. Please give me a moment to describe for you the ending of the show which was as close to a spiritual encounter as most people will ever experience.

Spectacular photos from Beijing.

The Big Picture has some spectacular photos from the opening of the Beijing Olympics. With over 15,000 performers and a budget that made Water World look like my grad film I think it’s safe to say it was the most amazing Olympic opener to date. The fireworks may have been fake but these photos are 100% real.

Corey Arnold

I remember seeing a bunch of Corey Arnold’s photos from the Bering Sea earlier this year, but I didn’t realise until recently (as I was going through old bookmarks) that he had a bunch of other great work too! Enjoy.

Beijing Olympics in cards.

20 Days. 140,000 cards. Nerves of steel. Guinness record holder Bryan Berg’s Olympic Village crafted entirely out of playing cards. Whenever I see something like this, it instantly reminds me of The Jenga Tragedy. Hahaha that never gets old!

Sittin on top of the world.

So while the rest of you were lying around on the couch in your underwear, hypnotized by the Olympics, my sister and I decided to climb a mountain. These photos are further proof I live in the best place on earth.

This was a our pump-up song before the hike and also our celebration song after the hike:

Cat Stevens – Can’t Keep It In
