Does anybody know anything about teenormous ??

teenormous.com

It’s an incredible resource, like google for just t-shirts. There is a heap of redbubble tees on the site too (even a few of danny’s).

It appears that people can’t join and add t-shirts (like at rumplo.com), but tees are added to the site automatically depending on a bunch of unknown mystery factors – can anyone work it out ??

It’s all made using ruby on rails too, which is what RB uses.

Look what arrived at my work last week :


I think I’m Flying Inside by onetonshadow

Awesomness isn’t it ? Thank you Ed and thank you RB for having a canvas sale a few weeks back. Believe it interwebians, the canvas prints are quality.

I do have a suggestion too – I reckon this print would look extra superb if a black ‘frame’ was printed around the image so that the edges of the canvas were black when mounted, whatd’ya reckon ?

The City

The UN estimated that as of late 2008, over half the world’s population would be urbanised, that is living in a city or it’s surrounding areas. Source

I had been anticipating the arrival of RB’s latest publication for some time and was delighted to see it had arrived in one piece and only slightly damaged by an excitable two year old who had attempted to open the envelope using a technique which could best be described as ‘curious stomping’.

The graphics and layout are unassuming, slick and simple, they leave the images and words within to do the talking.

This image is my personal favourite Father and Daughter by Luigi Scuderi :

Of course, seeing Robot Rights in print is a major highlight too :

This fabulous publication will be right at home amongst my many others :

Architecture as art

Tyles is in need of distraction and so has created a little challenge.

Architecture is in many ways an art form, so I though I’d share.

The Archipelago house, in Sweden, by Tham & Videgård Hansson is a modest home and a celebration of life, family and nature.

I think it’s art and I think it’s beautiful.

Let me explain. Take a look at the plan :

The true beauty of this plan is in its parsimony and its efficiency. This is a small house, about 130sqm. It’s about the same size as a three bedroom apartment, radically smaller than the average three bedroom house you will find in any suburb here in melbourne (180-250sqm), and a serious critique of the way many of us live (or expect to live) here in Oz.

The simple idea of stepping a series of boxes has created a means of opening up the home to

Chinese Skyscraper Fire

Last week whilst Victoria burned, so did Beijing.…

The TVCC tower, designed by Rem Koolhaas (OMA) was set alight by ‘illegal’ fireworks set off for the Chinese New Year celebrations.

It is believed that no lives were lost, the building was under construction. Chinese media is being VERY quiet about the whole thing, ironically the building next door (my favouritest buidling ever) will be the headquarters for the CCTV (Chinese Central Television). The building that burned was a hotel and theatre complex and part of the overall masterplan for the CCTV site.

Here’s how it was looking :

Here it is on fire :

This is the aftermath :

Clearly fire’s don’t only happen in the bush, but it’s an interesting contrast. The bush will take many many decades to repair, the hole left by lives lost will ne

When you get your (preferably clean) hands on a spanking new redbubble tee you also get a rather fetching tag with a bit of string and a little clothes peg.

They make a great bookmark.

As you can also see they are Darth Vader Star Wars Lego approved. Which is the real point of this journal entry – LOOK AT MY NEW SUPERFRIGGIN COOL LEGO !
