finite infamy

This little graphic caught my eye. Its clean and comical...and it travels to see the nations hiways and byways! I don't advocate vandalism, however if it does happen, and it will, it should be tasteful like this!

Batman premiere

No I did not attend the premiere nor was I included in this batman fan zeal photo op. The three young fellows waited in a long line to see the midnight premiere of "the dark knight". They seemed joyed at the request for an action photo for blogging purposes. I like these type of guys, don't take themselves too seriously, and have fun doing it!

eternal light?

This lamp by Design Academy Eindhoven student Marieke Staps claims to use dirt for power. Power is needed to light the low voltage led... just like the potato light from science lab days past. This lamp is "Planted" in a dirt hole and it is supposedly supposed to go on as long as the led holds out...but I hear that the ground where the electrolyte conversion process takes place becomes toxic to plant life because too much exchange from the copper does bad things?? nevertheless a very inventive and beautiful design...not quite the eternal light I dream of.

BLEGS... or bleggin it.

I am coining this phrase: "blegs" or "bleggin it". These youths with their tight pants hanging down pass their bottom...it appears as if their back flows right to the leg, without the interruption of the cheeks we sit upon. Hence the combination word back+legs=blegs, kinda like calves+ankles=cankles? It's not as mean as the later, and its not meant to be mean, just to describe such a strange fashion expression. I watch as the pants are constantly being pulled up, only to slide back down...this could prove injurious if one was running and the pants slipped to trip up the stride!

Blegs! I always make the statement when I see the youth group kids blegging it. Ha!
