I have shown this to a few people before but its to good to not make a note of it. Congress starting giving photographers grant since the mid 1800's. At the time they felt American life should be documented and decided to use photography as a way to document it. The product is sitting in the library of congress where they, no doubt, have been neglected until now. From what i understand the flickr account only holds about 4000 images, and the library has a collection of 14 million. I have been looking threw their immense collection on flickr over the past few months, i pass the findings on, happy hunting.
These are the dopest commercials i have ever seen. Those fucking cockroaches are funny as hell. I do have to say though, tossing roaches on people is fucked up. I take that back that shit is Gangsta. Props to DavidandGoliath the ad agency that came up with the concept. These guys also did the funny ass Bacardi and Coke TV ads.
Check their site. I love their excuse for having a boring site.

Today i descoverd cartype.com. I swear this site was made for me and Robert. All it talks about is the typography used and created for car companies and the history of the car companies. This site is awesome.

This is the second stage of the prototype for my first toy. This has been my first attempt at designing a toy and I'm really happy with it so far. Some of you have already seen the first stage as a PDF Paper Toy which you can build yourself. My website, which is coming soon, will have that PDF available for free download. Wish me luck =).

I've been on the website of Wonderwall for the last hour. This interior design studio out of Japan is hands down my favorite interior design studio. They are the ones responsible for the bathing ape stores all over the world, as well as Pharrell's BBC/Ice Cream store in Tokyo and the Original Fake store in Tokyo. The clothing store, restaurants, and offices they design are simply stunning. They are masters in simplicity and elegance as well as color. And their choice of furniture is fucking ill. Please check out their site and see their extensive collection of work.

I'm feelin a little crappy at this moment but this pillow brought a smile to my face. One of the things i hate most in life is alarm clocks. I fuckin hate waking up in shock by the fucking noise an alarm clock makes. This pillow begins to glow 40 minutes prior to the alarm you set. So it's like being awoken by the sun which i love, except that only happens at noon for me and most of us have to wake up before the sun even comes up. Also i found out it's not good to wake up to shock your body wastes time trying to recover from the shock. I know that feeling all to well. read more about it here http:http://embryo.ie/glo/index.html

So the other night Robert and I were watching Style Wars and one of the illest quotes ever was said.
Teacher: " You don't make any money from graffiti."
Kid: "When was the last time you made $2000 in a month. Huh? Ok now you fail."
That shit is fuckin fresh. That was like a big Fuck You to any teacher that ever put you down. $2000 isn't alot of money now for one month's worth of work but in the early 80's it was.
If you have never seen Style Wars you need to click the link below now!
Editors Note: Robert had never seen Style Wars until the other night. One of the biggest HipHop heads i know. Into graffiti for a minute and he never saw Style Wars until last night. What the fuck Robert. Im never gonna let this one go.

Shepard Fairy has redesigned the covers of the classic George Orwell Novels "1984" and "Animal Farm" for Penguin. I knew he would redesign the cover of 1984 after he did his "Big Brother is Watching You" piece. It was only a matter of time. He even used the eye element from his original Big Brother poster.
