Crazy lightning in Belgium

Tuesday, May 26th, 2009

Really creepy lightning happening here tonight in Belgium. The whole sky is lighting up and there’s no rain or thunder. Reminds me a lot of War of the Worlds.

The video doesn’t do it enough justice. I also tried to get some photos using the night mode on my camera. Amazing how bright it is at 3.30am. I smell a new desktop background…

Interview with Elliot Jay Stocks

Wednesday, May 20th, 2009

I had the pleasure of meeting up with Elliot over some beers in Leuven last friday, where he was speaking at the Twiist.be conference. He was kind enough to do a skype interview so here are the thoughts of a designer, illustrator, speaker, author, sometimes musician and international man of mystery

The Tim Van Damme Situation

We mention Tim Van Damme a lot in the video. I interviewed him over skype a few weeks ago so why not hear his thoughts on social media next?

Ah, nothing like a good mac vs pc ad, is there?

And the inevitable parody of the ridiculous laptop hunters videos.

Fascinating visual style of this video. Really unique.

Nightmare Doll

Monday, May 4th, 2009

This has to be one of the scariest things in the world. It’s in a window near my apartment and I have to pass it most days. It’s hypnotising and haunts my dreams.

scariest doll ever

You have to wonder who made this, if it was a child then they need some serious help. I’m thinking that it has magical powers of some kind. Maybe someone just found it? Maybe it was here before humans? I feel like knocking on the door to see if the people in there are ok or has nightmare doll done some killed them with it’s wandering eye.
