Introducing Cuppy

I really hope this project turns out as good as we are hoping. It is only a photo album before I put it into final cut though.

My friend Jon and I are working on an animation about eating utensils. The project is looking like it might be more than we can handle, but as jobless as we are we have the time to put the effort into it.

Pay Attention

A little bit ago I started this community blog called Pay Attention. I got the inspiration when I was walking around a state park before it got cold and stumbled onto a leaf hanging in mid air. It seemed it was connected to one fiber of a spider web. It literally appeared to be suspended in the air. A very surreal site. I started wonder how many people have missed this leaf. How many people miss all the moments around them that are unique and inspirational. Then I started to think about how I must pay attention to my surroundings so I don't miss something else like this leaf. That's where the idea came from. A place to collect all the moments you choose to pay attention to.

In the first month of the blog, it seems to be just me and a few others posting. If anyone wants to be part of that, just leave a comment and I'll add you. I think it could be an interesting community. I have an idea to make the banner art into t-shirts and grow this community if it takes off.

Where in the world is the spork?

Today I went on a quest to find a Spork.
The only place that has one is Popeye's.
I do agree given the rarity of the spork,
it should only be found behind bullet-proof glass.

First Snow

A week ago it was 60 degrees, and the week before that it reached records highs in Michigan with ten degrees higher than that. It is November 16, and this isn't even our first snow fall. The eve of my birthday on the 10th there was enough powder on the cars to make a well-formed snowball. It sure seems a little early to see the white stuff. I know this because I have a memory of driving home from my so-called Bar-Mitzvah party on November 23 when I was 13 years old, and it was snowing for the first time that year. It was a very mediocre average year, and before global warming meant more than just a large part of the Pacific Ocean was hotter than the rest, El Nino.

After two weeks of this cold and wet snow I'll be ready for summer.

The word Infinity is rarely experienced, but the times you really understand it definitely seem surreal. Like pondering how big the universe is, or how small the smallest phenomenon is. The basis of String Theory, understanding the unity of everything in existence through an infinite measure. If you haven't pleased your mind with the headache theory of Strings, then I suggest you watch the PBS Nova special about it. It was made in 2003, and now I wonder what advances have been made. You can find all three parts here.

Today while I was in the bathroom at PRONTO!'s I had one of those surreal experiences we all had at one point, but might not have noticed. When you experience a mirror within a mirror you get to see what infinity looks like. I apologize for my shitty camera phone quality pictures.


Think Make Think

John Maeda wrote some clever and inspiring words. The fact that it is a Haiku can be easily over looked. The Haiku is entitled Think-Make-Think. These are great words. When I first read it I was thinking it was a moment of dyslexia or even a Freudian slip. Something similar along the lines of the "I'm not think as you drunk I am." It only started to hit me when I realized there was a purpose behind it.
