Really Nobody Here :)

Wednesday, December 10th, 2008

Ok, I scheduled this post for today but forgot about it and never put in the content, only the title.  So the previous post popped its little head up with just ‘Nobody Here’. Come on, I had to keep it there for the ironic factor. :)

Anyway, I wanted to point out this great site I stumbled upon yesterday.  ‘Nobody Here’ is a collection of weird and wonderful little flash projects and other strange things by Jogchem Niemandsverdriet.

I’m very puzzled as to how Mr Nobody’s mind works, but I love it.  There seems to be an unending list of projects on here to delight and weird you out for hours.  Warning: You will get no work done for about half an hour if you visit this site.

The chat experience is something completely new!  You become a cute little spider in a sink [above] and you can talk to other little spiders who are on the site while you scuttle about.  Great stuff :)

The toes dream is pretty weird along with the chewing gum table, but my favourite has to be the bed one [below] where you follow a tired body about the bed trying to poke him to wake him.  I think it’s my favourite as I am this person :)

Great site Jogchem!

Have you ‘Extreme Stumbled’ yet?

Thursday, December 4th, 2008

I’d like to think I have an extreme lifestyle.  Sometimes I run up stairs really fast and get a little dizzy and I have been known to eat something that’s a day out of date.

Another one of my daredevil hobbies is ‘Extreme Stumbling’ [I think I may have coined a phrase there].

How to Extreme Stumble

Basically hold down cmd [ctrl on pc] + click like a madman on the ‘Stumble’ button on the StumbleUpon toolbar, opening loads of new pages in tabs.  I find this method of stumbling to be far superior than the regular boring method of one at a time.  Come on, that’s for sissies.

Extreme Stumbling is an inspiration overload!  It’s also a great way of seeing how much decent content you usually get in comparison to inspirational posters.

Rules

  • Keep hitting ‘Stumble’ until someone in the office looks to see what the noise is or until your finger falls off [My record is 113 open tabs]
  • Go through each tab one at a time.  Don’t be skipping ahead now!
  • Don’t close the browser until you have seen all tabs

Guaranteed to get:

  • An annoying sound/music playing from one tab that you cannot find
  • At least one naked lady
  • Inspired like hell

Rare

  • Finding your own site
  • Finding a duplicate

Anybody else do this or is it just me?

25 Creative Twitter Creations

Tuesday, November 18th, 2008

I can’t deny it anymore.  I have to admit it.  I am a Twitter addict. During a conversation with Takete, he described Twitter as ‘throwing a message in a bottle into the sea’, and that’s exactly what it is!  Maybe someone will come across your message, maybe they wont.  It doesn’t matter, that’s the beauty of it!

Well the Internet has been getting very creative with Twitter mashups, apps and sites popping up all over the place.  So here is a list of 25 of the best, most interesting, useful and unusual ones that I have found, all nicely collected for you.  How nice :D

Protected Posts

Wednesday, November 5th, 2008

I use this blog for absolutely everything.  My thoughts, interestings sites/projects I find, rants and of course my work.  As I’m still in uni, some of the work can’t be made available for the general public.  I’m sorry, its not that I don’t trust you guys, you know I love you!  But as some of it is still in the development stages, there will be a few posts that are password protected.

Don’t worry, you wont be missing anything.  Just boring sketches and stuff.  There’ll be plenty of other stuff to keep you guys occupied.  Like Super Obama World! :)

Blessed are the Twitterers, for they shall inherit the Internet

My Tiny Jesus…

Jesus preaching the random word of Twitter.  Kinda cute speech bubbles, and a little hypnotising.
