Filters – Second hand, Third Hand … Yourself

You shall no longer take things at second or third hand, nor look through
the eyes of the dead, nor feed on the spectres in books,
You shall not look through my eyes either, nor take things from me,
You shall listen to all sides and filter them from your self.

[quoting Walt Whitman, "Song of Myself" 1819-1892, seen in movie, With Honors]

Rally to Restore Sanity

Yes!  It is time…

Rally To Restore Sanity Poster - 10.30.10

Get the message first hand by clicking the Poster above, or read it here below:

-From: http://www.rallytorestoresanity.com/ -

“I’m mad as hell, and I’m not going to take it anymore!”

Who among us has not wanted to open their window and shout that at the top of their lungs?

Seriously, who?

Because we’re looking for those people. We’re looking for the people who think shouting is annoying, counterproductive, and terrible for your throat; who feel that the loudest voices shouldn’t be the only ones that get heard; and who believe that the only time it’s appropriate to draw a Hitler mustache on someone is when that person is actually Hitler. Or Charlie Chaplin in certain roles.

Are you one of those people? Excellent. Then we’d like you to join us in Washington, DC on October 30 — a date of no significance whatsoever — at the Daily Show’s “Rally to Restore Sanity.” Ours is a rally for the people who’ve been too busy to go to rallies, who actually have lives and families and jobs (or are looking for jobs) — not so much the Silent Majority as the Busy Majority. If we had to sum up the political view of our participants in a single sentence… we couldn’t. That’s sort of the point.

Think of our event as Woodstock, but with the nudity and drugs replaced by respectful disagreement; the Million Man March, only a lot smaller, and a bit less of a sausage fest; or the Gathering of the Juggalos, but instead of throwing our feces at Tila Tequila, we’ll be actively *not* throwing our feces at Tila Tequila. Join us in the shadow of the Washington Monument. And bring your indoor voice. Or don’t. If you’d rather stay home, go to work, or drive your kids to soccer practice… Actually, please come anyway. Ask the sitter if she can stay a few extra hours, just this once. We’ll make it worth your while.

Watch Jon’s call-to-reasonableness on The Daily Show. Keep checking back for updates and rally information.

Happy 2010 St. Patrick’s Day

I really enjoyed seeing Google’s custom themed logo for this March 17th, 2010 St. Patrick’s Day holiday.

Celtic knotted Google Logo for St. Patrick's Day, March 17th, 2010

Celtic knotted Google Logo for St. Patrick's Day, March 17th, 2010

I thought it was interesting to see they only allowed this on the main Google Home page, and not any search result pages.  In the past, this themed version would also appear on any sub pages or search result pages.  Perhaps a way to maintain more solid brand reverence?  Perhaps a “we will allow the temporary deviation of our main logo here, but not any were else”, thus giving even more sanctity to the main logotype that is so very well known?

Art History 101: ’70 Million’ by Hold Your Horses!

70 Million by Hold Your Horses ! from L’Ogre on Vimeo.

Does the “70 Million” of the title refer to the number of viewers Franco-American rockers, Hold Your Horses! hope to garner with their newest video? They just might get there with this ultra-clever clip directed by L’Orge. This trip through the history of art gives even OK Go and the master of quirky himself, Michel Gondry, a run for their money.

–Richard Metzger

Video: “70 Million” by Hold Your Horses! Directed by L’Ogre.

Okay, let’s just take a look again at the Ok Go’s “This Too Shall Pass” music video.
