Nutty Buddy Delivers the Goods

Sometimes the best comedy is when people aren’t trying. Make sure you watch the video for the “Nutty Buddy, a revolutionary athletic cup designed by a pro baseball player for superior protection of your most valuable assets.” [via Coudal]

9/11 Response Shows Country's Downward Turn

Passing through the 5-year anniversary of 9/11 last week, I thought I’d hold off posting and let everything I experienced soak in. I watched a couple shows that night; listened to commentators talk about the tragic event; read articles online concerning the terror those in NYC felt that day.

Bellagio Fountains on Coke

I’m sure many of you have already witnessed the greatness that is the Mentos/Diet Coke Fountain exhibit. For a little behind the scenes info, head over to c|net for their video interview with co-creator Stephen Voltz.

Inspiring Creativity

Whoa, RealLifeTM is taking it’s toll on me. Sure, life in Cyrodiil is moving along swimmingly, but that’s another story.

What do you do if your work demands creativity and the well is empty? Inspiration.com isn’t going to give it to you. World of Inspiration is nicely done, but a different animal. Beliefnet has inspiration of another kind.

Media Inspiration is closer to the mark but where are the grand experiments? The true right brain theorists? I’d love to start a collection of links to sites that promote this kind of thinking. Who would like to start?
