The lines I hate hearing when I’m sitting down at the dining table about to dig in on my meal when I’m particularly famished are:
Can you please pass the salt?
Can you please sprinkle a little bit of pepper in my soup?
Almost all of the bags and cases that I’ve seen for SLRs are either black or brown and just plain boring. While I get that it’s for practicality’s sake, it does very little for aesthetics, which I’m sure, matters to a lot of people.
You might remember those weird glasses made with human hair that we talked about a few days back.
Now we bring you more hair-raising works of art made with human hair, and this time, you’re supposed to wear these on your neck.
So what do you get when you put together a brilliant professional prop builder and the love of creating techie stuff? Stunning speaker systems, that’s what, if you happen to be Richard Grant.
Most likely you wouldn’t be familiar with his name, although you might have already seen some of the fruits of his labor in feature films like Alice in Wonderland, TRON, Imaginarium of Dr.Parnassus,
I’m not a very huge fan of dustpans. Or brooms, for that matter. But both are essential if you want to keep your floors dirt, dust, and hair-free.
Maybe it’s the way I sweep or how I hold the broom, but I’ve never been really good at getting all that dust and dirt into the pan after I’ve swept through the entire room.
Once in a while, we get word of something so outrageous and weird, yet quirky at the same time that we can’t help but waste a few precious minutes of our life trying to find out more about this crazy piece of news.
I’ve seen a whole lot of quirky and out-of-this-world cases for Apple’s über-popular smartphone, but this one still managed to take me by surprise.
First, because I don’t really understand what could be going on in the minds of the people who came up with this.
If you’ve always been fascinated with the Jurassic Park movies and somehow wished that you were alive in the era of the dinosaurs, then this might be something you might want to check out: the huge, life-like 20-foot Animatronic Triceratops, available from Hammacher Schlemmer.
I have to admit, I’m not really a fan of artificial intelligence ever since I saw the movie A.I. (which stands for artificial intelligence.) Science and technology have definitely advanced to the point where realistic robots that closely resemble humans have now become a reality.
I think the era of 3D was officially ushered in with the release of the Nintendo 3DS. Although the concept and technology has already been around for some time with 3D movies and 3D television, it was only then (in my opinion, at least) that 3D sort of made its way into mainstream technology since 3D was being offered, glasses-free, on the handheld video game console.
It used to be that whipped cream packaged in aerosol cans was the only foodstuff I’d consider spraying straight into my mouth. It’s a common scene you see in movies when teenagers or kids go wild and just start spraying stuff all over the place.
I used to stick Post-It notes on our refrigerator door, cabinet, mirror, computer monitor, and possibly a hundred other different locations when I wanted to leave a note for my sister on those occasions that I would be sleeping by the time she got home and she would still be in bed when I would be leaving for work.
I’m a huge fan of the Transformers movie franchise. Truth be told, I actually had to be dragged by my sister to the screening of the first movie. I probably said something to this effect then: “I don’t want to see a movie with robots that start out as cars with a leader named Optimus Prime.”
You might have already heard about the Chinese boy who sold one of his kidneys for a mere 20,000 yuan so that he could buy an iPad 2.
Now there’s another Chinese person who’s going to extremes just to get Apple’s sought-after technology, but this time, it’s a girl and she’s giving up something that’s supposed to mean something: her virginity.
I find it amazing that designers and visionaries in the industry are so abreast not only with fashion trends, but also with the shifting attitudes of consumers.
As a response to today’s quick-to-dispose society, Azusa Murakami and Alexander Groves have come up with a stylish and innovative collection of glasses and spectacles that are made from… human hair.
