I was commandeered for a design project that usually isn’t something I’d be interested in. However, it posed a significant challenge so of course I took it. I’m designing a card reader/dispenser for shipping labels to go directly on drop boxes. While the project is a little more complicated and multi-faceted than that brief description, the image should give you a general Idea of what I’ve done so far. Changes and revisions are coming soon. I found this really cool site that tracks the IP addresses of those who update or change Wikipedia articles. It actually finds out if those IP addresses are attached to any companies and then outs them for tampering with data to suit their corporate needs. Too bad changing Wikipedia isn’t illegal or that would be some rap sheet. This is by far the funniest movie review I have ever read especially the part about Peruvian chickens. This site just plain rocks! Who knew that microwaves could light up Christmas lights?

The two lead actresses in two of our upcoming films are not happy with the movies at all. In fact it was put as “Actress A hates her film only slightly less than Actress B hates her film.” Now, this may not seem like a big deal (other than the fact that they signed on for the film in the first place), but it’s really hard to market a movie when the star freaking’ hates the thing. That means no to limited press, publicity, junkets, presence of the star of the show. Can that kill a film? No, but it makes our jobs a lot harder trying to convince the peoples to watch a movie when even the lead hates it. In other news, they are trying to re-vamp the punisher movie franchise (hey, maybe third times a charm). I loved the comic but hated the movie. Oh, and I wanna eat one of these because it looks positively hideous.

Ingmar Bergman and Michelangelo Antonioni. I don't know why, but I'm a little saddened at the passing of these two directors. I'm also a little freaked out that they died on the same day. If you do not know who they are, I recommend finding out. Such subversive and lasting images.
