Stunning Photos from Around the World

These pictures were taken by photographer Tim Allen, while the BBC was shooting a recent programme called “Human Planet“. I actually missed the programme (will def catch up with it on iplayer). But the images that Allen took are incredible and even just on their own, even more so with his own storytelling of how […]

Body Parts Like you Never Saw Them

Pretty cool this. Black and white photography of body parts with a twist. Photographer Allan Teger puts tiny models in unexpected places to create a fascinating and unique perspective of the human body. Check out his website and loads of additional photos here, a little sample below. and my personal favourite: Great stuff. You can […]

Stonehenge Ikea

I recently came across this, and found it rather enlightening, as I now understand how Stonehenge was built. The only thing it fails to explain is why its still there (none of my Ikea stuff has lasted more than a few years). Maybe its because they never moved it (that when my Ikea stuff tends to […]

The President’s Speech

How would this brilliant film have looked in the American’s had made it? Say, for example, Mike Tyson had been hired to help George W Bush take giant strides forward in terms of eloquence? Well, we know the ending, so perhaps the choice of language therapist could have been more inspiring, but its worth a […]

Las Palmas Bar Antics

Very much doing the rounds, but after I previously blogged about the destructive habits of various under 5 year olds, it seemed rude not to also include this little gem. The best thing is that this is actually a preview of a short film to be released soon by Johannes Nyholm, who has a facebook […]

The (baaaad) history of product placement

If you work in advertising, and even if you don’t, then you know the drill. Product placement is everything these days, and entire films are funded by it. One of my personal favourites was Wilson the Volleyball in Castaway (great film). My other favourite was the whole idea of the film Terminal. I mean, if you […]

Jumping at Shadows

To find out more about Taichi Saotome, check out his wikipedia page here. Apparently he is a famous actor known for playing both very good looking men and […]

Melbourne’s Lanes

Melbourne is pretty much my home town. I wasn’t born there, but spent most of my life there, went school and university there and still love the city. One of the things that sets Melbourne apart and makes it so unique, are the lanes which zig zag the centre of the city. They weren’t as […]

The Decay of Motor City, USA

I wrote recently that Chernobyl, that most unlikely of holiday destinations, was now open for business, and looking to attract travellers interested in something a little unusual. Recently, I cam across some of the most incredible photos of another city – Detroit – which is also in decline, though not quite through such tragic and […]

Different Interpretations of the Creative Process

This is brilliant. I never thought about it really, but of course in some way, everyone who is truly at the top fo their game has in some ways applied creativity to get there. Composers, Copywriters, fashion designers, but also atheletes (“listen, when the gun goes, I run like hell”) and Physicists. Sadly I cannot […]
