I've been reading a LOT lately. Finished some good books (if you want to see which books you can go to my goodreads here or on the right - and in full disclosure, I do not get anything from goodreads although that would be nice if I did. :p)

Anyway just saw this crazy video over on Gizmodo and thought I would share:

The papercraft is amazing, the voice-over not so much. Still - very interesting!

On Drawing, from Milton Glaser

Milton Glaser is a well known graphic artist - he's the guy that did the I Love New York design!
Here's a great video about drawing he did a few years ago.


I like drawing.

The Trap in which I Find Myself

Very interesting article on how up until you are over $40,000 a year, a raise might actually make you earn less than you did at a lower wage.

I'm actually working on getting out of this trap myself... and it is a struggle to be sure.

Often times you hear people say that you just need to 'Work Harder' to get the results, but I think more appropriately people need to 'Work Smarter' instead.

New (to me) from the Dvinsk Clan

One of the first free-running/parkour videos I ever saw was by the Dvinsk Clan. STILL pretty amazing to watch today.

Via David Belle's (the founder of Parkour) website (translated) I found a new video by these guys, a lot of goofing off and not-so-good language in the music/soundtrack, and if you speak Russian you'll hear quite a lot of vulgarity... but the moves and control these guys have is pretty amazing. About 14 minutes long or so, very interesting to watch.

OUT OF TIME from Андрей Скурьят DREE on Vimeo.

Amazing moves.

I went to the So You Think You Can Dance tour with my wife tonight, (I guess last night now sheesh, I need to get to sleep!) and those dancers were spectacular! Amazing and inspiring for sure!
