This little blog is a cute one! It’s regularly updated with creative images of the secrets- I’ve put some up- but there are also e-mails and a PostSecret Community. It’s hard to explain this blog, I can only hope you check it out for yourself.

You can also buy books full of the post cards- just look for this picture in the middle of the blog–>

‘PostSecret is an ongoing community art project where people
mail in their secrets anonymously on one side of a postcard.’

Have a look and a laugh- even contribute some. Enjoy…

Tired of your old Sand Hour Glass? Update it with the new Pixelated one!

“For over 40 years, one of the longest running television shows in history opens with a slow camera zoom on an hour glass ticking away your daily wasted hour of mind numbing melodrama. The voice over is one of the most famous lines ever written for mass media; “Like sands through the hourglass, so are the days of our lives.” That’s it! Aside from the occasional egg-timer sighting or Flintstones episode, society has moved way beyond need for one of the most ancient of technologies, the sand filled hour glass. Designer Pavel Balykin believes this very retro timepiece is on schedule for a comeback. It’s fittingly called the “Sand+Time Watch” and has the distinct feature of a digital hour glass screen saver mode. It’s a “screen saver” mode, because this particular feature does not actually count time for you. If you want to know the real time, click a button and a more modern interpretation of time, we like to call “numbers”, will appear.”

This is a nifty little gadget! It’s a cassette tape mp3 player where you can hold the music on a USB and then stick your headphones in and enjoy!

Granted it’s a cute novelty item but I can see how it can be impractical. It uses kinetic energy to charge manually and if you wanna rewind or speed of a song- you gotta use the tape holes and do it manually. Not only that it doesn’t hold a lot of music. Click Here to check it out!

For this week I’d like to divert your attention to my favourite comedic trio- Andy Samberg, Jorma Taccone and Akiva Schaffer.

These three friends made a Pilot called ‘Awesometown’ for Fox except it was never picked up. But the video for the pilot is floating around everywhere anyway- so here it is, Enjoy!
