This must have taken an insane amount of time, dedication, and imagination. I would recommend watching this video in it’s entirety, if you skip around you’re bound to miss something incredibly crazy. For more info on the artist visit

“I practically breastfed Robert Rauschenberg!”

Awesome quote from some curator guy in New York, via my friend Sarah. This was said back in late 90’s. Wish I could remember his name.

A newly discovered letter from Einstein has been uncovered that pretty much ends the argument of whether or not he believed in god (both atheists and theists have long been claiming him to agree with their own side).

“The word god is for me nothing more than the expression and product of human weaknesses, the Bible a collection of honourable, but still primitive legends which are nevertheless pretty childish. No interpretation no matter how subtle can (for me) change this.”

Pretty straightforward. Dawkins will be quite pleased, as he devotes some ink to explaining Einstein’s use of the concepts of god and religion.

You know those sentences that they use to show you fonts, the ones that have all the letters of the alphabet in them so you can preview your letter forms all at once? Well, I got a freebie font from Adobe for registering some software, so I made up a pangram to test it out. Works great! Feel free to use it yourself.
