When you open a pizza box, there’s only one thing that happens

Tuesday, 24 May, 2016

Photos of people opening pizza boxes, by New York based photographer Chris Gampat. There’s not a sour face to be seen. I’m not sure if this particular aspect of our lives has been documented already, but I’m happy someone did so now.

Everything is a remix, and that includes The Force Awakens

Monday, 23 May, 2016

What’s with the often glaring similarities between the latest Star Wars film, The Force Awakens, and the 1977 original, A New Hope? It’s because the latter is a remix of the former, of course. Or a remix for the most part.

Alone, or with others, there’s no beating the movie experience

Monday, 23 May, 2016

Chris Randle, writing for The New York Times Magazine, makes the case for going to the movies alone. Or, more the case perhaps, going along full-stop, whether by yourself, or with others.

Yet part of me loves meeting these unknowable visitors, just as I love darting inside a theater midsummer, pretending for two hours that the sun and its demands no longer exist. The mood of the room inducts you to its conspiracy. I would never shush that father and daughter softly discussing what’s onscreen, even the plastic-bag crinklers, because they’ve granted me license, too. When each stranger fades to a half-presence in the darkness, you’re alone with your feelings yet unable to hide them, a reflective exhibitionist. At Manhattan’s long-gone Bleecker Street Cinema, the house cat Breathless would often escape the office and claw its way up the screen, encouraged by cheers.

That’s no paperweight, that’s a cake

Monday, 23 May, 2016

I’m not a food blogger, but I couldn’t passed the Instagram page of Olga Noskova, and the photos of the cakes she posts. What are the chances of thinking these are ornaments, or something, rather than cakes, if you were to see one sitting on a table?

Everything is divisible by itself, or something

Monday, 23 May, 2016

Either you decide whether there is a deeper meaning to Look-See, by Daniel Savage, or you can simply enjoy looking at what is presented to you on the screen.

To be more productive, you need to put in the hard yards

Friday, 20 May, 2016

I could write a book claiming to help people boost productivity, but the only person who would ultimately benefit, would be me, in so much as I would collect some sort of royalty. In the end, time management systems, and there are plenty of them, are really only partially effective.

To be productive, and to achieve what you need to, something a little more stringent is required, you need to be hard, very hard, on yourself, writes Sydney based entrepreneur, Jon Westenberg.

So, I got mean. I shoved my only controller into a box and mailed it to myself. It took 4 days to show up again. In that time, I couldn’t play Tomb Raider, and it sucked, and it made me get stuff done. Give yourself some consequences and stick to them. Treat yourself like an employee and recognize that if you’re employees acted the way you do from time to time, you’d fire their asses. Get mean.

Let your smart shoes lead the way in an unknown city

Friday, 20 May, 2016

What a great way to find your way around a new, unknown city. Smart shoes will guide your movements through the streets, by vibrating when it is time to make a left or right turn.

I’ve never seen this neighborhood before, yet without so much as a glimpse at a map, I know exactly where to go and how to get there. The smart shoes on my feet know where I am headed, and vibrate when I must turn left or right. It is liberating. No more consulting a guidebook or my phone, no more asking strangers for directions. I simply enjoy the city.
