UNHATE, an ironic hope.

"Hatred is never appeased by hatred in this world. By non-hatred alone is hatred appeased"

the UNHATE CAMPAIGN by Benetton.
promoting closeness between people, faiths, cultures
& peaceful understanding of each other's motivations

''While global love is still a utopia, albeit a worthy one, the invitation 'not to hate', to combat the 'culture of hatred', is an ambitious but realistic objective. 'At this moment in history, so full of major upheavals and equally large hopes, we have decided, through this campaign, to give widespread visibility to an ideal notion of tolerance and invite the citizens of every country to reflect on how hatred arises particularly from fear of 'the other’ and of what is unfamiliar to us. Ours is a universal campaign, using instruments such as the internet, the world of social media, and artistic imagination, and it is unique, in that it calls the citizens of the world to action. At the same time, it fits perfectly with the values and history of Benetton, which chooses social issues and actively promotes humanitarian causes that could not otherwise have been communicated on a global scale, and in doing so has given a sense and a value to its brand, building a lasting dialogue with the people of the world.''

In my opinion, YouTube stars always take it a notch up
when it comes to creativity.

Frugality and a want to make it big overrides budgets.

Not as cute as version 1....
but let's be real, Marcel's cuteness level is overwhelming,
so it's really not that much damage to drop a couple of notches.

Yoda eats Nissin too.

Apparently Nissin instant ramen noodles are Jedi Council approved,
since Yoda has now come forward with his endorsement of the Cup Noodle.

I can totally imagine Yoda sitting down in his cave
on Dagobah to a hot cup of ramen noodles,
they’re good for those cold swamp days.

So all I gotta do is imagine that I'm not at this
sucky desk all day trying to figure out how to use excel.


Excel story of the (yester)day:
All I did was copy and paste a set of numbers
into different columns and I made them all into $.
BUT the moment I hit it, everything went #####.

I tried EVERYTHING to fix it
I eventually resorted to retyping the entire thing on a separate column.
and deleting the original column instead.

the columns were just too freakin' narrow.

Excel.YOU. SUCK.

a cup of smiles.

On a gloomy day (kind of) like today.
I think this is just what the doctor ordered.

Cotton Candy is good enough on it's own,
let alone mixing it in some thirst quenching goodness.

-3 lemons
-4 cups water
-1/2 cup sugar

Using a vegetable peeler, peel the rind off the lemons
(being careful not to get any of the white pith on the peel (its bitter)

Add the peel to a jug.

Juice the lemons and add to the jug (3 lemons should give you about 1/2 cup juice)

Add the sugar and stir with a long spoon, until dissolved.

Add the water, and top up with plenty of ice.

Place enough candy floss in a glass to fill it.

Just before you are about to serve, pour the lemonade over the candyfloss and watch it disappear before your eyes, whilst simultaneously colouring the lemonade a beautiful pink colour.

This secret ingredient is also found alcoholic too in things like

[Place candyfloss into martini glass.
Then add Grey Goose and Cranberry juice into shaker,
add cubed ice and shake and slowly strain over the candyfloss.]

splitting waters.

"And Moses stretched out his hand over the sea; and the LORD caused the sea to go by a strong east wind all that night, and made the sea dry, and the waters were divided…"

{Exodus 14:21}

... this execution is definitely a tad less dramatic & wayy more tangible.

Bridges are always above the medium of which they're passing through.

don't ever give this man ninja stars.

I don't know where one learns to acquire such skills.
But all I know is that if this man was ever a ninja,
no one could stand a chance.

dude, where's my art?

p.s. gotta love the fish eye.

s(t)weeter notes.

We always see birds singing sweet little duets(ish)
song with a Disney princess (mainly Cinderella).
This time around these little munchkins are playing an instrument.

The image of it all is just so beautiful.

square climbing.

It sure looks sick and VERRRRRY modern Japanese architecture.
But at the end of the day I can only wonder:
how comfortable and happy can one be in this house?

FULLY transparent.
Plus, you climb all these ladders all day like a monkey in a cage.

stack me up.

Recalling my kindergarten days, playing with blocks was
theeee most mundane activity you could have possibly
engaged yourself in.

Now with the use of image recognition and projection mapping
playing with blocks might just be the next new exciting thing.

By recognizing the stack patterns of these blocks
images are projected accordingly allowing for playtime with animals
learning time with numbers & visual stimulation with colour shows.

a million thousand CONGRATS to all my recently(ish) engaged faves.


You guys keep my belief in love alive.
I love weddings. I looooovee love.
Can't tell you how freakishly excited I am
& how many gallons of tears I'm saving up this year.

classically cheapened? no, recreated.

Ever wondered what body parts Van Gogh would have
(digitally) cut off if he knew Photoshop?

Or all the gadgets and gizmos Da Vinci would have

juiced out if only he knew AutoCAD?

In the spirit of Post-Modernism that everything that
can be done has been done already, why don't we run
with what has already been created & have a little fun?

(gangstuhs. stolen shopping carts & all.)

These once idyllic scenes, now sabotaged by modern day
commentary on pollution & just the dirty rats that we are.
Recreated in oil, these "rude" additions... done by none other than

Banksy (i love you) himself.

Each of these pieces were exhibits at a gallery in Britain...
one of which was also infested with rats-- fitting.

Photography is probably one of the most altered elements
in the field of art and design.
Depictions with this media is only logical.

Re-creating paintings with photography.
Some of them trying hard to stick to the original plan
but no harm is done putting some plastic on each other to
make nipple pinching less awkward and a little more comedic.

In the summer of ’06, I bought several kilograms of peas,
and sat there quietly for two days peeling them,
before stringing them on a wire and turning them into a skirt, a top, a headdress and a magic wand.
I used a remote control to take a photo of myself in them, and named it Pea Beauty Pageant.
That was my first work of vegetable art.
In the two years that followed, I often dressed up as a housewife,
leisurely strolling to the market in a serious search for fun.
I would often pace in front of the vegetable stalls, picking things up,
thinking and putting them back, trying to figure out which positions made them more interesting.
The different types, shapes and colors of the vegetables, with a bit of rearranging,
can make for a rich source of imagery.
Fresh, withered, rotting, dried, pickled, boiled, fried, they all come out different.
I no longer needed a model, as they all became actors and even props."
