San Diego Traffic- Sorted by Color


Poor electric blue cars...


Midday Traffic Time Collapsed and Reorganized by Color: San Diego Study #3 from Cy Kuckenbaker on Vimeo.
The source footage for this video is a 4-minute shot from the Washington Street bridge above State Route 163 in San Diego captured at 2:39pm Oct 1, 2013. My aim is to reveal the color palette and color preferences of contemporary San Diego drivers in addition to traffic patterns and volumes. There are no CG elements, these are all real cars that have been removed from one sample and reorganized.

Ship Your Trousers!

I may be incredibly immature, but I find these KMart commercials to be hilarious.

New one for the holiday season:


Old one.

Horrible Tattoos Photoshopped on to Real Photos

I thought these were pretty amusing.

Here are a few:



Didn't even know this was supposed to be a bear...


Somehow it's made even creepier...
Nightmares for days...


Simba??


And....


The return of Sad Puma!!
Oddly enough I get more hits on this blog for people looking for that guy than anything else.
I owe it all to you, Sad Puma.

Eden's Paper

Wrapping paper embedded with vegetable seeds that you can plant after unwrapping!

Sounds pretty cool...

Video from their Kickstarter (now over):

Developed by UK-based creative agency BEAF, the paper comes in five different designs, each reflecting the kind of seeds embedded within them. Available in tomato, onion, carrot, broccoli and chili variants, the paper is made from 100 percent recycled materials and biodegradable tissue, which contains the seeds. The design is printed with organic vegetable ink and no glue is used. Rather than sending it to landfill after the Christmas festivities are over, users can bury the discarded wrapping in their gardens or plant pots in order to grow the vegetables. Currently funding on Kickstarter, backers can get their hands on the products from GBP 5 for one 45cm x 70cm sheet, or can mix and match ten sheets for GBP 38. The video below offers more information about the project (via Springwise)

The (false) fun fact that China owns most of our debt is not remotely true anymore...

Eraser/Erased

Randomly saw the poster for the movie "Erased" with Aaron Eckart.

Thought it looked/sounded a little familiar...


I haven't seen the new movie, but I guarantee nothing beats a 90s Arnold movie.

School's Out!

Finished with school for the semester... It's time to get back to posting!

This is freaking amazing.



I love nothing more than a maniac, especially when that maniac decides to go fully rogue at a ballet recital in front of an audience of adoring parents, especially especially when that maniac is an adorable pre-schooler who I can only hope will one day be the model citizen for my own child. 
The music begins and this girl leaps out of the starting gate like it’s the Kentucky Derby, waving her arms and flapping her legs like she’s Shirley Temple hopped up on sugar from her own eponymous drink. (Whoever was in charge of filming this recital knows what’s up, btw, and hit that zoom lens ASAP like a pro. They probably missed their own kid’s boring tap-tap-kick but it was worth it. “Sorry, Maisie, I wasn’t able to film you because your classmate Sandra was reenacting the opening scene of STOMP.”) 
Our girl can’t stop won’t stop and doesn’t stop. Even when the music ends and she’s blown kisses to her fans, this two-stepping toddler starts krumping like she’s the last act of Step Up. (The Man Repeller, I don't know.. someone posted the link on Facebook)

Orchestral Flash Mob?

Everyone is really starting to hate flashmobs, but this one is pretty awesome:
"On the 130th anniversary of the founding of Banco Sabadell we wanted to pay homage to our city by means of the campaign "Som Sabadell" (We are Sabadell) . This is the flashmob that we arranged as a final culmination with the participation of 100 people from the Vallès Symphony Orchestra, the Lieder, Amics de l'Òpera and Coral Belles Arts choirs."


Not just a bunch of sub-par dancers shaking around disrupting everyone's day!
