Year of the Dragon!

As we in the West put away our party hats, noise makers, aspirin and eye drops and start the work of the new year, the Chinese are getting ready to celebrate.  Chinese New Year is January 23, 2012 and 2012 is the year of the Dragon! People born under the Dragon are passionate, brave and […]

This Post Has Nothing to do with Architecture.

I know!  It has been a (long) while since my last post.  Work is getting busy, a good thing, but I have missed sharing a bit of myself online. So back to it.  And to refresh the blog I thought I would share something fun. I do have a beard so I know how warm […]

Falling In Love With Binary Code.

It’s sad really.  For the past year or so my heart has fallen for things that will never be developed, never know the touch of sunlight, the cool of rain.  Yes,  I am in love with Binary Code. My newest love is the Ferrari 612 GTO Concept.  Sasha Selipanov’s concept is truly a thing of […]

Drink Cheerwine.

One of my favorite areas of the country is North Carolina.  There is something about the people, the natural beauty and the food that makes it feel like home.  Unfortunately North Carolina is a five  hour plane flight from Seattle. Thankfully I can now get North Carolina sent to me.  Cheerwine is now sold over […]

It is always the simplest ideas…

Simplicity.  It is what I find most interesting about modern design.  Take the Split Watch for example.  By simply twisting the watch 20 degrees on the band the watch is easier to read (for right-handed folks). Enjoy the simplicity and don’t kick yourself too hard for not thinking of it first.

Ok, a Rolex post…but it’s a really cool Rolex.

It has happened to us all.  You are at a coffee shop, the theater or in the car and *tingle* you have been hit by a huge magnetic field.  Damn!  There goes my watch! Worry no more. The new Rolex Milgauss is incredibly resistant to magnetic fields.  How?  The watch is covered in ferromagnetic alloys […]

A Link To The Past.

Like many of my age group, I own music on every media created. If I had to, and let’s hope I never have to, cull out my collection what would remain would be my electronic music and my records. While I love the clunky 8-track and the cassette is easy to store there is something […]

iPad coolness.

The reasons for me to get an iPad seem to be getting more and more persuasive.

Spandex Bike Shorts Will Still Look Bad.

If you watch House Hunters or House Hunters International on HGTV you know that “they” have yet to produce a piece of exercise equipment that looks good in a home.  Without fail each house tour includes a quick peek into the bonus room or basement where these horrid dust collectors live never to be seen […]

Could This Be The Steampunk iPod?
