Cram some life into your life before you bite the big one.

If you’re feeling guilty about not ticking items off your bucket list what are you waiting for!? Goddamn get out there and live your life now now now!! Or not.

And now, as with any passably decent idea in the popular culture, that cute little gift book has now been whored quite nearly to death. There are so many spin-off titles it’s a bit like skanky celebs showing their vaginas as they exit an Escalade. Which one to choose? Which version to read and ponder and further my anxiety that I am never doing enough, which one to make me feel excruciatingly underexperienced in the world?

Photons Be Free: Wolf Blitzer Will Speak With The Jedi Council

CNN Anchor Mr. Wolf Blitzer ; Benazir Bhutto, ...

i09 reports that CNN’s Wolf Blitzer will be interviewing 3D holograms on Tuesdays night. Sounds like this is just one way that CNN is trying to grab viewers during election night coverage and probably won’t be as cool as it could be.

…CNN plans to film each spokesperson using 44 separate cameras, filtered through 20 computers. The resulting 360-degree image will be projected into CNN’s Manhattan studio, making it look as though the spokesperson will be there in person.

Is James Bond loathsome?

For the record, I’m generally a James bond fan but I find it interesting to read the critiques.

At the heart of any execration of Bond is the formulaic nature of the films. Rich but psychologically flawed mastermind builds big base at sea/under dormant volcano/in space. James Bond despatched by M to spy on rich but psychologically flawed mastermind. Conspiracy uncovered with minimal detective work, leaving plenty of time for bedroom activities. Bond captured but still manages to destroy rich but psychologically flawed mastermind. The end.

How I feel about Flickr

Image by Esther17 via Flickr

digital inspiration has posted a nice guide to cool tools available for flickr using a handy Q and A format. For example:

Q: I need pictures from Flickr for my school project that look like a sad or angry smiley face.

A: Go to Retrievr, draw a sketch of the smiley face and this tool will try to retrieve pictures that match your sketch. Could be a great option for searching pictures that cannot be described in words.
