So summer is here! I’m taking macroeconomics at Saddlecrack over the summer to get ahead of the game and finish my lower division courses at UCSD. I’m also trying to get a job at Montage in Laguna so we’ll see how that goes. So ya, I’m back after a quarter absence we’ll seen how this summer goes. Here are some links I’ve had stashed…

And I though Dane was the only one who loved taking apart stuff just to see the insides. This blog provides play-by-play photo journals of the deconstruction of various electronic goods. They even take requests!

Porsche’s latest chronograph is the first watch with a digital display that’s driven by springs and gears. Here’s a look at a few of its 800 parts. Oh ya! It also only costs $150,000

Army R&D come up with the BigDog assistant robot.  I found this a wile back and then recently it ended up on VH1’s webjunk which I wound kind of insulting because I think this thing is really sweet. The video of it getting kick and then recovering itself brfore falling is amazing.

Amazing the technology we have these days! Nanotech is the future.

Really cool concept design by Loop pH. It is a luminous sleep system that has lighting built into the bedding and begins to get brighter when your alarm comes on as to wake you up naturally with the sun.

Very slick home furniture design team ler studio has some really sleek and unobtrusive furnishings.

Artist Fred Eerdekens uses shadows as his medium of expression.  Fred manipulates objects of his creation into forming shadows that are truly amazing.

Contact Free Spirit Spheres for your very own hippy tree sphere. Now you too can live like an Ewok high in the forest.

Check out these sweet watches from Vianney Halter: The Antiqua and Cabestan

Artist Christine J. Brandt makes beautiful jewrey from hand carved exotic woods and inlays semiprecious stones into them in a way that make the whole ring of necklace look like some wonderful natural accident.

Here's a lazy post. I've been relaxing from stuying by reading internet comics. Here are a few of my favorites. And they get more funny the longer you stay awake.

An Ode to the Riches...

Very cool artist Mark Dean Veca, creates an art environment at his gallery showings. His work isn’t just paintings on a wall. Check them out!

Artist Marilyn Minter has created some very interesting billboard size photos depicting high fashion glamour shots with mud. She has three billboards in the West Side NY.

Miyazaki's Ocean Dome is the world’s premiere man made ocean. This Japanese creation exists less than a mile from the beach, but with retractable dome top and perfect 6-foot barrels who wants to deal with saltwater?

Company Miles Kimball has made a smart little invention to make pill taking easier for those that just can’t handle it otherwise.

Playing the Market is a musical experiment by Emerald Suspension in which he inserts Stock Market data into his computer and with that data assigns music notes to compose a minimalist orchestra. Very cool sounding.

So the remaining links I dedicate them to the highest echelon of gluttony and frivolity.

The world’s most expensive vodka, Diaka, supposedly filters vodka through diamonds. You have to be a real idiot to actually buy this crap though, because diamonds have no distilling properties that make this vodka so “smooth”.

Here are some of the most interesting Forbes annual lists:
  1. World’ richest people.

  2. Highest paid athletes

  3. Most expensive watches

  4. Most expensive hotels

  5. The sexiest islands. I would like to know how the hell they rank these. It seems like the biggest marketing ploy I’ve ever seen. “Ya ya we’re a sexy island!”

  6. World’s fastest cars.

  7. The best places to die. Strange how your priorities change isn’t it? I still think this is one of the most ironic and backward titles I’ve ever seen.

  8. Most overprice cities in the US. This goes to show how hyped some areas are, and how they really aren’t worth it. It would be interesting to see what would show up if they did counties instead of cities.

Another Week Down...

You must watch Salad Fingers. Its one of the weirdest and creepy flash animation cartoons I’ve seen. Its not gross or scary, the character is just creepy. (Scroll down the sites page for episode one.)

Interesting and somewhat artsy internet games.

Cool page discussing different Flickr program to make Flickr even more addicting.

Photographer Martin Waugh uses high speed cameras to capture amazing photos of water drops falling into water. It's amazing what shapes the splashes come out to be.

Photographer Andrzej Dragan has captured some remarkable portraits. He states, “Some people claim that a good portrait will reveal some truth about a model. I'm undoubtedly sad to state that these people will not find anything interesting in my photography, which has no such purpose.”

Hlaska is a company that makes very cool men's wallets, check ‘em out.

Seiko has produced a Bluetooth watch that will allow you to control and manipulate your cell phone. Not to mention it is a beautiful watch.

A new type of helmet. It’s soft until impact. My how the times are a Changin’ .

Self taught Mexican rocket scientist (sounds shady) has made his own jet pack!

The Navy’s new unmanned assault and spy drone. It’s a boat. It’s a plane. From the USA with love.

Where to find uber sweet limited edition Vans tennis shoes.
