Tune in, pay up

August 30, 2010

No frills Tune Hotel has arrived in London. Tune are a chain of hotels from The Malaysia and The indonesia, Tune specialize in “five star beds, 1 star price” plus tax, plus towels, plus cleaning, plus anything you can think of.

Basically the room is cheap, but you pay for all the bits you normally expect on top, like towels and electricity, a window (ok, i made the last one up).

The only bit that confuses me is why cleaning is an added extra. Why would you have to pay for cleaning, surely that’s a given. If it isn’t imagine the state of the room if it went a year with no-one opting to pay for cleaning, nice.

Cheap frills and dirty weekends away here.

I have the power

August 27, 2010

Whichever way you look at it power lines are an ugly and unsightly necessity of life. But Choi and Shine Architects based in The Boston have devised an ingenious way to make these eyesores beautiful and elegant. Their human pylons alter with the landscape so that when the electrical lines ascend a hill, the pylon figures imitate a climbing person. The pylon-figures can also be placed in pairs, walking side by side or glancing at each other or holding hands.

Nice work here.

Rubik’s Cubism

August 27, 2010

Invader, an artist from The France is most famous for putting space invader characters in urban locations. Now he’s turned his hand to another 80’s phenomenon the Rubik’s cube. Most people would struggle to even make one side of a Rubik’s cube let alone a whole image. His collection features portraits and popular culture as well as historical events. Check it out here.

Teenage mutant ninja dogs

August 27, 2010

Sandy Paws is an animal “grooming” shop based in “Old Town” Yucca Valley. Look it up on google maps, it looks thoroughly depressing. Clearly if you live in Yucca Valley California, their isn’t a whole lot going on. So what better way to spend your time than to dress your dog up to look like a camel, or a ninja turtle, or even a peacock. I shit you not. Sandy Paws you should be ashamed. And no I don’t think Cindy enjoys it, as you say,  (Cindy is the dog at the centre of each transformation by the way) just look at the fear in poor Cindy’s face when you dressed her up as a dragon. Roooaaar!

Scott Pilgrim vs the trailer

August 24, 2010

Nice idea to promote the latest Edgar Wright movie Scott Pilgrim vs the world. I’m not sure you learn anything more about the film than you would from a conventional trailer, but it feels in keeping with the movie premise and made me play along and interact. Which is more than half the battle. Nice here.

Tarp surfing

August 23, 2010

I’ve been a bit rubbish recently (see what i did there) and not posted as much as I should. Soz. Anyway Tarp surfing was one of those things I meant to put up here but just forgot. But as it’s doing the rounds again and because it’s pretty cool I’ve posted it anyways. If you didn’t see it the first time round enjoy.
