This photo might be computer graphic showing skeleton view of the car but i think it can be interesting to make car just like this with translucent panels. Could get dirty quick but what a heck. Donto Motors P1

Heuer clock Porsche. Beautiful.

Nissan Juke. Nice try for new design but the rear bumper merging onto main body detail is premature and unresolved.

Naughty Porsche driver.

Atrium House by Fran Silvestre Arquitectos from ArchDaily on Vimeo.

Slick architect. Looks like a Computer Graphic but presence of human looks real... using Porsche 996 is wrong choice though.

Moto Pre

Old Olivetti poster. Not Old looking at all.

Burma Superstar Restaurant
Everytime we walk by, there are people q-ing out side. Burma food? We shall try next time. But down a few blocks, there is similar restaurant with B*star. I wonder that too is Burma food copy cat and taste the same but just not yet popular...

Citroen DS4. Rear door outline looks a bit funky but like it.

Richard Sapper stuff. Funky and like it.

What are you doing Jag? C-pillar treatment is mistake and front grill is too heavy.

Nice group work with a twist. Nitai dai, shu-dan koudou clip. Not as crisp as North Koreans but fun to watch.

The green one which is 2005 Fenomenon Stratos was much healthier design evolution than Black one which is done by Jason Castriota who designed some decent cars before heading SAAB.

Il Postale Italian restaurant in Sunnyvale CA. It was Voted Silicon Valley’s
Best Italian Restaurant by Citysearch.com. But I vote D+. Hate to pay for crappy food. Pasta, Pizza, main all bad and taste like American school lunch.

nice! by Sam Drury

Basically this doc saying do not eat animal who has higher temperature than you. Better if no meat, no milk (especially homogenized is really bad), no yogurt, no booze, no smoke, a lots of water before meal, a lots of fruits before meal. For the meal, brown rice, seaweeds, lightly boiled veggies and fish. I bet he is right but will be boring and also makes weak human...

The progress toward the end is pretty slow. Almost so that I thought Beyoncé start signing or some. Pretty amazing clip.

Teaser from BMW. Like this tight fit fabric look. I would make it so that it is the official exterior design.

500 days of summer 2009. Nice music, tempo, script and ending. loved it.

Another Matte Car, I know but this time this is official Mercedes for Jason Button. C63 Wagon. Slick.

photo by Nick Meek. Dig.

Sculpture by Jaehyo Lee. You can see nice and big one at Grand Hyatt TPE. I like them a lot. I also saw the similar one at Inter-Continental at Ishigaki but not sure if they are done by him or not... I will see them again in a few weeks!

Paycheck 2003. John Woo sucks. Putting gun to each other's head is his style but just a lame movie. I am surprise Uma and Ben signed up for this crap.

Super Eco Urinal idea.

Slick mag Hot VW's.

Ken Block Gymkhana series 3. moved to Ford from Subaru and video became more of advertisement of his shoe company than the skidding. Boring.

google changed the homepage logo. dropped the shadow and TM. Right move, why took so long?

Mini Traveler leak or guess-work. I like it much better than the Countryman design.

Love this simplicity.

How they disappear from one end looks sublime. Bubble clip.

Mini lads are very creative even on ads. Sushi on Mini clip.

EMBED-Funny Tour De France Prank - Watch more free videos
Funny clip by French. Pretending like just a normal rider is the winner. 1st a few are rejecting but the last dude is going with it.

Southbound by Hideo Okuda. Thick volume, well written especially about kids life with bully in city. Very nice ending without knowing where about of their parents.

After Dark by Haruki Murakami. A novel felt like prologue to 1Q84. Shallow.

Kohamajima. This is the small island we spend summer holiday. Now I am going back to Taipei for biz. They were so close together... Wonder I can live in Kohama and commute to Taiwan 5 days a week. That would be nice.

There are many Vietnamese ran barbar in the Bay area.  Price are usually $8 to $12 no wash.  Taiwanese does the best wash.

So useful.  Dorot frozen chopped garlic.

All white bike. Kind a nice in term of Safety point of view. At first glance, thought it was a folding but ain't. Once a week, I use my Brompton for 18miles ride commute and although it takes 6 minutes longer to get to destination, ride itself is pretty comfy than the Obey.
Movos 92010 Bicycle by Metaphys.

Wow, that is a big design variation on pencils. Glad teacher picked No.2 as standard, in a way.

Calculator design variations. Been there, done that... Too Bad Braun ain't there, because that would be the one for me.
