Ad: Ford Figo (Michael Schumacher)

Nothing like a little F1 humor to sell a vehicle, and to tie us fans over until the next F1 race. Even though this ad for the Ford Figo is slightly dated, since schumie no longer races in F1, I'm sure it still gets the point across 'Leave your worries behind. With Figo’s extra-large boot.' .

Máximo Riera's Animal Furniture

Whale I'm not entirely sure what I think about this collection of work, but I have to say it is quite impressive. Getting half of the inspiration from animals, Maximo Riera creates furniture that are made to resemble living creatures rather than inanimate objects. Which is your favorite?

Esbjerg RC Drift Track

The weather here still sucks, dam this is depressing (full disclosure: we did have a sprinkling of sun here and there, but it's still so cold, what is this global warming, I keep hearing about?).

Time Off

I'd like to inform everyone, who comes to my blog on daily basis, that I will be taking a few days off from posting. It's nothing serious, I just need to get caught up on some things and unfortunately this blog is going to be suffering. Not to worry, this is not the beginning of the end, or at least I hope it isn't. Seeing as I'm currently the only person contributing to this blog, it would be great to have others on boards, but does anyone really like working for free? Didn't think so. Maybe in the future I can take a few days off, while I leave others in charge of this blog, but until that time comes, you'll all have to settle with this crummy explanation. Thanks for understanding Mass

Thanks to The Walking Dead, it's all about the zombies now, and this bikini sort of says it all. If your interested in picking this item up click the link below...

MTB Promo: Extreme Riding on the Edge, Where All-Mountain Meets Freeride

Apparently this next video is a promo for a web series that's supposed to have been released already. Now I tried finding the actual web series videos, or links to the videos, but haven't been able to find anything. So if anyone can provide me with links that would be most appreciated. Regardless of whether or not the web series exists, this video is still really cool.

Ad: Schwimmer Pool Service (pH Business Card)

I think this business card is a great advertising tool for this company but how much extra does it cost for cards like this (does anyone know)? Is it practical?  I do have to mention that this campaign was created by a Canadian company  doug & serge of Toronto. Via - ibelieveinadv

Ad: Lar Center (Mechanical Sofa)

This is a great interactive ad campaign for Lar Center, a shopping mall in Brazil. To promote their summer sales event they brought in a mechanical bull, but replaced the bull with a sofa, thus inventing the mechanical sofa. The longer you ride the mechanical sofa, the bigger a discount you would get. Wonder what liability insurance they got for this promotion, but whatever it's a great idea. Via - Ads of the World™

Are You A Video Game Junkie? How Many Can You Name?

A mixture of 50 video games from the 80s. They range from PC-Engine, to Commodores, Atari to Master System and Arcades to Acorn BBC Micro computer. *This has been my most enjoyed art by others, but I keep finding it plastered about with no credit or link back here by a few. Kind of annoying. How it was made: The majority of the characters here were actually made but using a square block, duplicating it and moving it around into position. Depending on the complexity a single character could be made of up to 250 blocks and take around an hour to make. Characters from Burger Time, were much quicker to do and easier by hand drawing them on paper, scanning then colouring in. As a fanart piece it is obvious I have no ownership over the characters portrayed. All rights go to their respective owners: Nintendo, SEGA, Atari, Capcom, Namco, A&F Software, Hewson Consultants, Hewson, Micro Power, CodeMasters, Data East et al. - Judan

Booyah! Oh Yeah, Here Comes The Ouya

Earlier today I read... "With the popularity of streaming services mixed with free over-the-air stations, consumers are seeing less of a need to go with a cable subscription. In fact, the number of households that don’t have cable subscriptions has jumped to five million, compared to two million in 2007." - Slashgear So what does that mean??? Well not only are more people being more selective of what they watch on TV, more people are getting their content from other non traditional sources. Now I've already discussed my dislike for aPPLE and their products, so it's pretty obvious that I'm a devoted Androidee (just made that up, on a whim), and I've documented my fascination for XBMC , so you can just imagine my excitment at the thought of owing a OUYA . The soon to be released OUYA brings all the excitement of having an Android smartphone right in your living room, on a big screen. Now bundle that excitement with XBMC the worlds best media sorting, playing, a

Pac-Man (and Ghost) Ice Cube Tray

I know it's no where near warm enough (at least where I am) to be discussing ice cube trays, even if they are Pac-man inspired. But since the weather outside sucks, and you're in front of the computer, then there really isn't a better time to order ice cube trays. So, you order them now, they'll arrive just in time for the beautiful weather (let's hope). As you can see the Pac-man ice cube tray makes 8 pac-man cubes, and 4 ghost cubes, and comes with some pretty cool packaging. If you're interested click the link below for more details.

Dzmitry Samal Watches Collection (Four)

Dzmitry Samal has made a collection of watches called 'Watches' made out of concrete. Yes, I said concrete! Of all the possible materials you would consider to make a watch out of, in my mind, concrete would not be at the top of the list. In all fairness though, what do I really know about making watches?? I have to admit, they do look rather unique, worth the $1650(US) price range, I don't have that cash laying around, so I'm not one to say. Leave your comments The Fourth installments of the 'Watches' collection is what I would like to refer to as the BL*EEN edition. Here is what Dzmitry Samal has to say about his watches collection... "Watchmaking, as I see is more than just a time measuring mechanism. It is the main male jewellery and should reflect the personality and strenght of its owner. I chose concrete, a noble, modern, honest and robust material, the stuff our megapolis are made of. My watches tell the story of an alliance of French

Ad: LEGO (Goldfish, Frog, Canary, Mouse)

IMAGINE, that's the theme behind LEGO's latest print ad campaign. If you ask me, looks like the assembly person they hired padded their resume just slightly. Regardless they're still far more talented than me, at least when it comes to LEGO building.  Extra props for using a Canadian advertising company!
