Sony Bravia Paint

Since today is my birthday AND i re-installed a new system OS, i thought i would celebrate by posting this Sony Bravia add. Not as cool as their paint and their balls adds, but equally as beautiful! I think you all will like this one too. Enjoy!

An adorable little film from Charles and Ray Eames.

Thanks to our friends over at the LaughingSquid.com, I wanted to share this wonderful piece by the Eames.  Beyond furniture, Charles and Ray Eames were prolific in a lot of other mediums from miniteures to films to animation etc.  Here is a piece of hand drawn animation.

“The Expanding Airport” by Charles and Ray Eames is a 1958 educational animation about the novel design of Washington Dulles International Airport, the country’s first airport designed to accommodate jet aircraft. The film coincided with the beginning of the airport’s construction—the airport would go on to open in 1962.

Here is my little taste of San Francisco from way up there and there.

I would not be posting this post if it were not for my diligent neighborly comrades over at missionmission.org and buritojustice.com.  They have been so generous and wise to post these two videos.  I thought since i watched the clips within 20 minutes of each others tweets, it must be telling me silently to post the two and make it a theme day!

I really haven’t posted too much on San Francisco, although it is not just a city i live in to me.  I will go into the details of me learning of my lineage to one of the iconic founders of this beautiful town and the learning adventure it has sent me upon that is still in full study mode even today.

This city is filled with amazing, crazy, bizarre, heart warming, heart breaking stories.  It always has been.  It seems as time goes on, it is becoming more and more behaved with each decade that passes.  It sure makes it fun for me to be able to go back and learn about my ancestors while so much insanity and debachary existed.  Makes me feel a little less like a black sheep and more like right at home!  I love you San Francisco!

This is our mascot of SF.  It may not be the Eiffel Tower but, you’d be surprised… It can really grow on you.  Like that really ugly guy that ends up becoming so endearing that he becomes adorable. Kinda like that.  Anyway, here is our beloved mascot… Sutro Tower.

This is what Linkedin would have looked like in the late 80’s early 90’s! Funny and pretty spot on!

I remember in 1986 going to camp and they had a computer class. i was in it for two days until i switched to cooking. Programing DOS at 11 years old was NOT my thing! In fairness, i doubt it would be my thing today either. My brain needs to process more color! …enjoy!
