Formally Known

Andrio Abero-formally known for working with 33rpm (a studio that was internationally known for publishing for Seattle's vibrant music scene), now is doing some work of his own. He's worked with with many prestigious clients and is a recipient of the ADC Young Guns 4 Award (and a few impressive others). Well deserved, I think. And although he has one heck of a logo, he is better remembered for his work along WITH his name.

Fast and Furious

If you are anything like me, you'll know that when Paul Walker and Vin Diesel raced down that street chills went up your spine. I wanted the body kits. I wanted the underbody glow. I wanted that dual exhaust. I even wanted to airbrush designs on my car. Ah, but now I am older and a bit wiser. I realize that beyond teenagers, there is not much class associated with customizing a car yourself (unless you are a professional). That is unless you driving this.

Stunned? You'll find it even more stunning that this was done with a sharpie.

The second coolest thing ever

Despite your awesome decorating skills, you have yet to find someplace to put your unsightly ironing board. It is just SO AWKWARD. Not to mention SO UGLY. So I guess it's no wonder that someone started kicking around ideas about how to change ironing boards. But, who could have foreseen this?

Yes, Ladies and Gentlemen (and everyone in-between), this is an ironing board that turns into a full length mirror. Genius.

Stressing Out

Tick. Tock. Tick. Tock. Your life is stressful. What's new? If you want to monitor how stressed you actually are, you can wear this stress watch. Yes, you read that right. This watch by Gavari Designs not only tells the time, but gives you biofeedback. In real time it translates the data into colors and graphs so the wearer can see what is actually physiologically happening to their body in relation to how they might feel. A really cool concept, but the question is-would knowing how stressed you are, make you stressed out even more? You'll only know if you try it.

Modern Movie Marvels

You've got your favorite movies. You've held the cases in your hands over and over. Maybe when you got that new DVD, the picture on the case case differed from that of your VHS copy and *GASP* you didn't know what to think. Well hold on to your hat. My modern met has compiled 25 movie posters that make you gasp all over again.  You may wonder whether you are supposed to be offended or enthralled. For goodness sakes, this is everything you've known completely turned upside down. How will you ever cope? Well you can start by clicking here.

Men can look good too.

Metrosexual. Retrosexual. Gay. Straight. And everything in between. Your labels don't have to speak for you. Instead, let your clothes do the talking every once in a while. Just because you were born with a little something extra doesn't mean you can't express who you are through the textiles you put on your back. The famous fashion photographer, The Sartorialist, snaps every style of man. Find your type above or check out his blog too.

Playing with Knives

Sounds dangerous. Well it is. It also is a little bit exciting. Except the knives I am referring to are palette knives and are usually used to mix paint. Francoise Nielly  uses these knives to actually paint with. What she creates is intense, colorful, bold, and intriguing. You can't tear your eyes away from her work, and her work can't tear its eyes away from you. The paintings are violent in nature, but then again, playing with knives never turns out nicely.
