Elegantly branded

If you miss the simple beauty of good old branding (a rare sight on the web, I must admit), check out the "Title" section of the Royal Opera House.

Stiu cum vreau sa il fotografiez pe Vamos. In tinuta voievodala, in postura de ctitor, tinand in brate o macheta de Bradley M2A3 in loc de biserica.

Who do you call?

According to the London-based The Future Laboratory think tank, the amount of people arranging to have their cellphones or portable media players buried with them is on the rise, with a family service counselor for Hollywood Forever funeral home and cemetery stating that "it seems that everyone under 40 who dies takes their cellphone with them." Truth be told, the psychology behind it isn't all that odd; after all, in today's world, mobile phones go a long way to connecting one person with other loved ones. Just make sure to not go down with a Vertu or the like - wouldn't want to get unwillingly exhumed, now would we?

Cu un pic de ajutor de la un prieten, caruia ii multumesc pe aceasta cale, a iesit un ad pentru o campanie sociala impotriva violentei domestice. Donam ideea / executia oricarei organizatii dispuse sa il foloseasca.

Food vs. sex

This is your last chance. After this, there is no turning back. You take the blue pill, the story ends. You wake up and believe... whatever you want to believe. You take the red pill, you stay in wonderland, and I show you just how deep the rabbit hole goes.

So what should it be: Triferment™ or Viagra™ ?

Arta de a gresi

"In momentele care conteaza, aleg un deodorant pe care ma pot baza".

Dragutz, stau si ma intreb cam ce faci tu in restul timpului. Ah, lasa-ma sa ghicesc, esti roman. Folosesti unul mai prost, pe care nu te poti baza, sau pur si simplu nu mai folosesti deodorant deloc.

Felicitari domnule copywriter, din greseala ati adaptat perfect textul.

Despre vopsitul ciorii

Stim cu totii ca stam prost. Bucurestiul, precum multe alte orase ale Romaniei, e ca un scaun vechi: descleiat, incomod si cu un picior in groapa. Traim intr-un cerc vicios: suntem vai de curul nostru, istoria nu ne da credit, noi nu schimbam mobilierul.
Evident, vom fi fortati sa reparam (din nou) acelasi vechi scaun, sa vopsim (din nou) aceeasi batrana cioara. Si daca tot trebuie sa mai batem un cui in incheieturile pline de gauri ale acestui oras care se drogheaza cu provizorat, zic sa o facem macar de data asta cum trebuie.

Daca va intereseaza subiectul, treceti prin foaierul Muzeului Taranului Roman pana pe 15 noiembrie sa vedeti "Idei mici pentru un oras mare", una din expozitiile Bienalei de Arhitectura Bucuresti 2008. Sau intrati pe site-ul http://www.arhitectura1906.ro, unde puteti sa vedeti si eventual sa votati 16 posibile solutii pentru problemele noastre.

Holy Grail

"In total, 12 modified Hasselblad 500EL fitted with Zeiss lenses were left on the moon between 1969 and 1972. Only their film magazines were brought back to Earth. In fact they are still there now, somewhere in the Sea of Tranquillity..."

"The 1958 world fair in Brus­sels not only gave us the Atom­i­um, but also Grand Prix Brus­sels 1958 lens­es. It also gave us the Kometa, KMZ's spe­cial­ly built hy­per­mod­ern rangefind­er cam­era in the league of Leica's M3, of which two pro­to­types were taken to Brus­sels that van­ished soon there­after..."

When Spin Goes Ballistic

In a recent muscle flexing exercise, Ahmadinejad showed off the most secret weapon in the Iranian arsenal. No, we are not talking about the Shahab 3's succesor. Beware, Israel, of the mighty force of... well, Photoshop.

While 4 rockets going up hill might have that something that puts you in the world news...
... the reality begs to differ. Apparently, the fourth cracker didn't want to pop up, revealing something that can be described as the world's most ugly milk delivery van. Embarassing like hell, I would say. Details on The Lede, The New York Times' blog.

I wonder what could be the next step; probably the destruction of Israeli properties in Second Life. Anyways, for more fun, take a look at the Engadget's response: The Iran Tech Photoshop Contest.

Oh, the passion...

If f/5.6 is really f/5.6568 (square-root of 32), and f/11 is f/11.3137.(sqrt of 32)... and if f/11.3137 is rounded to f/11, shouldn't f/5.65 be rounded to f/5.7 instead of f/5.6?

AND shouldn't f/22.6274 be rounded to f/23 instead of f/22?

Mineriada de catifea

Prima lor intalnire se consuma undeva dupa 13-15 iunie, cand Ion Iliescu isi minimaliza faptele, explicand unor ziaristi francezi cum sadeau minerii floricele si ridicau jardinierele de pe jos in Piata Universitatii. Spre vesnica aducere aminte, prietenul nostru minimalul se intoarce la locul faptei, de ziua mortului:

Ne intalnim acolo.

On becoming a photographer

I might be wrong, but I think it was Ansel Adams who put it this way: photography is the art of seeing. We came a long way since your first encounter with the camera. Beat a few paths, too.

But looking at these pictures, I must admit - this was it.
Now you're a photographer.

Zee germans

O anecdota venetiana: undeva in 1593, Paolo Veronese da ultima tusa la o panza ce urma a fi o reprezentare intr-o nota foarte personala a "Cinei cea de taina". Chemate la vizionare, fetzele bisericesti raman usor perplexe datorita prezentei in tablou a (citez) "cainilor, bufonilor, germanilor betzi, piticilor si a altor astfel de nerozii.". Inchizitia cere niste explicatii, motiv pentru care omul nostru alege solutia simpla: schimba numele tabloului din "Cina cea de taina" in "Cina in casa lui Levi".

I must say, I fully sympathize with the inquisitors. Bloody beer-drinking yodel-singing German tourists. They are everywhere.
