This is probably the raddest fire extinguisher EVER. The makers of PinQy, a tiny 14 cm high extinguisher, have finally designed something that you won’t hide away in a closet, covered in dust. The word to describe it would definitely be cute, but I could imagine little kids LOVING this thing, and then squirting the shit out of each other with it.
(Edit: I originally wrote this entry in a huge hurry, and it sucked, so I apologize.)
If you read my blog enough, you realize I get a serious boner for cool patterns. So reading a blog like Print & Pattern is pure heaven for me. That’s literally all her blog is about, the most beautiful prints and patterns from around the world… it’s amazing that she’s able to find so many.
Well now she’s opened a small bookstore through Amazon, selling books devoted to amazing patterns. She has nearly 50 books in the store, all of them extremely cute. How awesome are the patterns are above? The color combos and shapes are so great.
I hadn’t visited Design*Sponge in a little while, so I was browsing through stuff when I came across the above skate decks by IMAKETHINGS. IMT is the moniker of Andrew Groves, an “illustrator and maker of small things and creator of beasts with a head filled with creatures that he has seen or wished he had seen”. I love his how clean and precise his style is, and his use of blacks is really amazing.
Be sure to check out the work on his site, and his blog as well, from which I snagged that picture of his custom designed sneakers.
I’ve always been a big video game nerd, but I have yet to make the jump to a “next gen” gaming console like the PS3, Wii or 360. But watching this trailer seriously makes me want to get a PS3. The game is called Little Big Planet, and it gives you the power to completely customize the characters and world around you. In fact, you don’t just customize it, you can totally create it. You’re given hundreds of shapes and textures and you can literally make anything you want.
I could see it being really fun to create all sorts of weird content, but on the other hand, I could see it being kind of a pain in the ass trying to make gigantic levels.
Weird enough, I received an e-mail from Christian over at Dansk Dynamit, asking me if I’d like to do an interview for his site, and of course, I said yes!
The beginning of the interview is in Danish, but my portion is in English so all of you English speaking peoples can understand it. Also be sure to check out the site, even if you can’t read it, they have lots of fun stuff all the time!
So hello to all my new friends coming to visit from the Scandinavian countries!

This is such a rad idea! Gallery 1988 is having a contest where you decipher all of the cult movies featured in the poster above. I have to say, that I’m pretty sure I got all of them. Not to mention that it’s an absolutely AMAZING poster designed by Christopher Lee.
To enter into the contest, send an e-mail to [email protected], and to buy the poster… well I’m not sure, just e-mail them and say you want one!
I’m really loving the look of Sony’s new Myspace/YouTube camera (c’mon, that exactly what this thing is for). But even though it’s aimed at wanna-be internet celebrities, I love the sleek, minimal form they gave it. The boxiness of it reminds me of old school Walkmen. How weird is it that we have video cameras the size of Walkmens?
