Happy Martin Luther King, Jr. Day everybody! And since he was a proponent of civil rights, I’ll start with a link from the LA Times about the Prop 8 trial:
Many opponents of same-sex marriage argue that it violates God’s will. Maybe theirs. My God doesn’t fret about homosexuality. And I figure if gays and lesbians can gain some comfort and happiness from formal marriage, then let them. Congratulations and good luck.
I think Parkour is really graceful and beautiful to watch, this video puts it in flip book form, which just blow my mind:
Nevada just registered the first male prostitute after a change in the laws allowed it to happen. Although, after reading the interview, he’s either stretching (he compared himself to Rosa Parks, yes, really) or just really dumb. I can’t quite figure it out. I started the link on the second page of the interview, which is where it starts to really get weird.
Here’s a cool spoof ad (complete with lots of swearing, so NSFW). Although I really shoudln’t talk, if the iPhone was on Verizon, I’d get one (mostly for the ability to play Myst):
Slate takes a look at the new Domino’s ad, which I happen to like, probably a little bit more than Slate does. Check it out here.
I’m a bit behind posting this, but if you haven’t seen it, enjoy:
It’s a little old news, but I didn’t post about it, and it still blow my mind, Slog put together a comprehensive list of the past administration (and Gulliani) trying to deny that 9/11 happened on their watch. My brain huts a lot when I try to comprehend this kind of logic.
Here’s a cool video about the power of images (and graphic designers). It reminds me a lot of the theory we discussed in my communication classes, if you’re interested in seeing more, check out InformationisBeautiful.net
Speaking of technology and how it changes us, Patrick has a great article about how technology can bring strangers together. A frightening situation, but an awesome use of the web. Also, I may have linked to this one already, I can’t remember.
Here’s a new site I found, all about fonts. I’m geeking out a little bit.
Alright, I think that’s it for now, have a great one!
