Solar Ship: Air Ships Taking To the Skies with the Power of the Sun

I just love airships. I wish I could travel all over the world in an blimp. Sure, it would take longer than a 777, but it would be way more relaxing. I wish that there would be airships all over the place, kind of like in the TV show Fringe.

Bianca & Ziploc for Smurfs

She poured some powder out of a tiny plastic envelope. Where do you buy those tiny bags anyway? I mean the ones that look like Ziplocs for Smurfs. Is there a coke dealer supply store out in the suburbs somewhere? Next to Michaels and Best Buy?

Stainedglass By Posterchild

Incredible street art installations by Posterchild. Posterchild is a graffiti artist from Toronto, Canada. Ona visit to NYC, he blanketed four annoying multimedia screens in with his own signage. These posters simulate a stained glass window. It’s pretty amazing to see. The effect is awesome. Four signs were created: “hold” “fast” and “sell” “out”. It’s incredible how something so ugly can become something so beautiful. (via designbloom)

Crystal Castles Controversy Redux

The band Crystal Castles (wiki) has allegedly stolen art from Trevor Brown. This accusation stems from the artist Brown.

The art in question (a drawing of Madonna with a black eye) has been used for the cover of a 7″, thousands of t-shirts and was proposed for the cover of their album (which was refused by their distribution company). They have yet to pay Brown for the use of this image.

Crystal Castles say that they have paid the artist and amended the initial contract. Brown’s account is only his side. Please read this to see the other side of the story.
