Regularly I (Andreas Weiland, Busto employee) receive a message linking to my swedish alter ego. Just to set the record straight, that’s NOT me.
“IÂ´ve recently invested in a hand-built Irish bouzouki. An instrument that IÂ´ve longed for for many years and it sounds awesome. It can be seen together with the proud owner in my picture. My first song with it is The Hare’s Lament, found in the music page.”
What the fuck is a “bouzouki”…Like some kind of greek banjo rocket launcher ? And how do you long for an instrument for many years ?
Again…It’s not me…But maybe it’s the explanation why I didn’t get that position at IBM…
This is me standing in front of a friend trying to take a picture of something else… [This one will surely backfire at some point]
And this is me in the front, along with a slightly spastic friend, enjoying one of those rare “I just feel like running in the fields like little girls”Â - moments.
SAKS FIFTH AVENUE gets a new identity. Pentagram made it, and you can read all about it here. They made the logo, and then they used the cut-up method in order to use variations over the logotypes as a branding-kit. As they say in mexico “Is cool”…
We made a bit of a site for the lovely Martin Greis. He’s a very talented actor, and you probably saw him in KrÃ¸niken if you live in Denmark. Every time I see him I feel like living in the 60’s ( pavlonian conditioning gone wrong)…Great chap…
Homo sapiens…back in the days we were monkeys. Today some of us are referred to as humans. In the gap between the monkey and the man, we evolved. One of the most important inventions are fire. Not because we were able to have a hot meal, but because we could keep the other animals away. Suddenly we could sit around the fire and talk about weapons and hunting, and how to improve these methods.
Being creative and innovative is all about taking the stuff that surrounds us, and rearrange them in a way that makes sense to us. Creativity and innovation isn’t something that only goes on at MIT and schwitzerland. It’s all around you, and more important, in you. As SNAP says…I got the power.
Today I wanted to listen to some music. I plugged in my earphones, but for some reason, only the left one worked. After about 5 minutes of tinkering about with the mini-jack, I discovered that it needed a wee bit of pressure on the side to do the stereo thing. I then discovered that if I placed my labtop on the cable, it did the trick.
This is innovation and creativity. If you look around it’s all around you, and if you ever feel like you haven’t got it in you, you’re wrong. Keep that in mind for the future. You got the power.
This is my uncles dog…It’s a funny dog…
I like all the lights in the trees during christmas…this is a tree in my parents neighbours garden. Nice and quiet.
But nooo..a few strees away they decided to turn their garden into Disneyland on acid…
And it’s not like it’s a company or anything. This is just an ordinary house on a ordinary street. We stood there watching for about 10 minutes, and in that time the crowds of people walking by made the great migration look like a walk around the block.
My sources tell my that it’s not like they did it over a period of time ( “Just the last light to make it perfect…”). No. They actually made a “Berlin wall move” One day there’s nothing, and the next everything is illuminated. (copyright Jonathan safran Foer)…
“Hi…Is it the electrician ? Do you do christmaslights ? ’cause we decided to go all the way…X-tra large…really really really repulsive…and money is no object…”
Coming home for christmas…
Nothing beats it..
Have a nice christmas. If you, as many do, often experience problems with the tree stand, help is on the way.
Google patent returns 482 patents if you search for \”christmas tree stand\”
And happy hollidays to all of you who celebrates chanuka, Kwanza and last but not least Chwinzukkah.
They wanted to know if they could rent my forehead for advertising. Regarding centent they will have final cut. It pays ten thousand dollars a month…Would you do it ?
If you refuse to accept that porn is here to stay, you won’t get this. But look at the picture below.
I think we can all agree that we’ve seen this picture somewhere. We look at it and think that it’s quite innocent. But your subconscious mind, whether you like it or not, will replace the camera and the tie with something else (haven’t figured out the COCKtail-glass though..)
This is what advertising do…they bring porn into our homes… It’s wonderful.
I got this from Green Gathering (Great blog by the way…)
It’s a post about Time magazine, and the annual person of the year. This Year they selected none other than “you”
Yes . ..That’s right. You…
I don’t want to go into the details as you can read the article yourself. But basically it’s about the shift from â€œThe “Great Man” leading the world, to the many “not so great” [My own term]. It’s all about the web (2,3,4 and so on)
and how it connects everybody, this way empowering the common people in a new Youtube democracy.
The thing is. When I saw the post on Ian Greens blog, an image popped up in my head. I felt as if I had seen this before. And sure enough. In the book “Emotional Branding” by Marc GobÃ© it’s on page xxiii. It’s in french, but translated it says “Man of the year 2000 is you”. As Marc explains in the article it’s based on the same thoughts as Time ( maybe a little less web’n’stuff…but still. The same…
This is what I would call a rip off…They differ on one thing though. The cover of L’EXPRESS is a mirror, this way making the cover an image of the person viewing. (Quite clever I think).
Basically Time magazine is six years late…
