Take you pick of Apollo missions here.

Where We Are Not Going This Summer

Well maybe one summer we will get here.  I have never been, but I am glad I live in this age where I can have a 360 degree virtual tour of such wonders.

How Muppets Work

HowStuffWorks explains How Muppets Work.  It’s more than just putting your hand inside a puppet you know.

Make Your Own Alphabet

A more accurate title for this post would be: “Make Your Own Font” because we aren’t suggesting you throw out our trusty twenty six or even alter how they are built.  We just think it’s fun to find the letters where you don’t usually look.  

Of course we found all of ours the easy way: on the internet.  Once you start looking, clearly you’ve got some projects to take you well into your Grown Up Years since where we found them they had alphabets made from things that should have “age appropriate” warnings on them (we will spare you those).  But of course some are just good clean fun too.

Nothing like having a reason to play with your food.  You can now tell your parents why: you are practicing to become a graphic designer and working on a new font!
Or maybe you just stick with food and go to hamburger meat.  

The first one I ever saw like this was made simply by staring up.  The creators were in the city so buildings always got in the way of a big clear sky, but they didn’t let that bother them — they turned it into an alphabet!  The sky spells all the answers.

Today: A Once In A Lifetime Occurrence Twice!

Today at 12:34 & 56 sec (on 7-8-09) will be the only two times in our lifetime (once in the A.M. and once in the P.M.) that you will see 1-2-3-4-5-6-7-8-9 line up.

Hold your breath. Or don’t. Maybe jump up in the air. Or spin around. Just celebrate the fact that everyday is fun and neat.

Schnoz-worthy Commercial: Roller Babies

We all tried drinking the magic water, but we still couldn’t rollerblade like this.  Maybe if we put on Rapper’s Delight it would do the trick.

Webcam Music Video

Again we have no idea what they are singing, but they sure made a fun video.  The people in it are all over the place and just using their webcams.  Beautiful!  Who says you need anything other than some smarts to make great stuff!

Thanks Noah!

This site could not have been built without the help and insight of Michael Morgenstern. My thanks go out to him.

Help save indie film and give this guy a job in web design or film!
