The Quiet Life 10 Year Anniversary T-shirt

The Quiet Life 10th Anniversary T-shirts

In honor of The Quiet Life’s 10th Anniversary, Andy and Jen have asked 10 of their favorite designers to design a t-shirt, which they’re now selling in their online store. The list is rather impressive, and goes to show you that it pays off to be doing the things they’ve been doing for 10 years now. The artists contributing designs are Todd St. John (of HuGa), Evan Hecox, Ben Loiz, Katsuo Design, Andy Jenkins, Ryan Waller, Rick Myers, Florencio Zavala, Cody Hudson and Megan Whitmarsh (who can give Geoff McFetridge a run for his money when it comes to yeti drawings).

The shirts all come in two different colorways, and go for $25 and $30, depending upon how fancy you want your t-shirt material.

The Volkswagen Space Up!

The Tokyo Auto/Motor Show is in full swing right now and Jalopnik is spitting out brand new cars left and right for us to ogle. the one that caught my was the newly unveiled Volkswagen Space Up!, which is technically the big brother of the VW Up!, which I posted here about a month ago.

The Space Up! is still pretty dang small, but it’s 23 centimeters longer, and has a larger wheelbase than it’s smaller sibling. It also features 4 doors, and has up to 1,005 liters of cargo space, depending upon what you do with the back and passenger seats. That sounds really small to me, like you could only fit one piece of IKEA furniture in there. Also cool is that it has butterfly doors that open outward from the center pillar.

On the inside it has a two informational displays. The display in front of the driver shows the cars vehicle speed, fuel level, distance traveled, and CO2 emissions. The other sits in the middle of the car and gives you access to the “main menu carousel”, which aloows you to control navigation systems, telephone, radio, internet, images films, and more. The whole deal is touch screen and uses proximity sensors to help you adjust controls easier.

While this all sounds amazing, they’re just now beginning to create production models, so actually seeing anything like on the road won’t be happening anytime soon.

Hotdog Hearts by Liam Devowski

Hotdog Hearts by Liam Devowski

I feel like I’m kind of cheating on this post, because I didn’t quite find Liam Devowski and his awesome typography, he found me.
Liam commented on a post yesterday, and as I do with everyone, I checked his website out to see what he was all about. Liam graduated from Syracuse University this last spring, and is now freelancing in illustration and graphic design in San Francisco, which I’m sure is a totally different beast from Syracuse.

The poster above was my favorite because instead of printing the poster with ink, he printed it with ketchup and mustard, haha… Sheer brilliance. He’s a huge type nerd, so be sure to check out his site if you’re into that too.

How I Fixed My Last.fm Scrobbling Problem

My Last.fm problem was bugging me all last night and this morning, but I just figured out what the problem was!

I was thinking the problem might have had something to do with my iPod settings, so I went into Last.fm scrobbler preferences, and noticed i had 4 different iPods associated with the program. I decided to delete them all, unplug my iPod, then plug it back in and see what happened. I ended up getting the screen above, and realized that this was where the problem came from.

Note that iTunes must be set to automatically sync the iPod for this to work”

I don’t sync my iPod, I hook it up to my computer at home, and the one at work. If I did sync it, I would be able to do that. I decided to say yes and see what happens.
It turns out you don’t have to have your iPod synced with a computer for it to scrobble from your iPod. I had checked no because I didn’t want to try and auto-sync my iPod in iTunes, I wasn’t sure what would happen.
Last.fm really should change this text because it’s simply not true, and because of it, users like myself may not be getting the full Last.fm experience.

It should be interesting to see how much my charts jump now that it scrobbles my music during the day while I work.
