1. And... we're back. You'll notice that all of your images are back as well, as are our beloved emoticons, including the infamous :foo: We have also worked with our server folks and developers to fix the issues that were slowing down the site.

    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    When did Iranians learn how to read?

    I remember when that was designed a few years ago. There was some hoopla about the fact that it was so blatantly trendy and not really in the "Olympic Spirit", but I hadn't heard about this Iranian business. Sheeesh. I wonder if they got to submit their own logo. It was a design bake-off, after all.

    How about the new Pepsi logo? That's almost in the same league... and probably 3x the stakes.

    Logo design is serious business!

    +1. I was thinking it would be a fairly silly crafts-fair design, but wow. I want one.

    Really? Those are carved? Pretty cool.

    The opening shot of Limitless was something I've never seen before.

    The Limitless opening was pretty cool. If we're getting into that aspect of design work as well:

    [VIDEO][/VIDEO]

    A great trailer, one of the best I've seen in a long while. We all know the stories by now (after the novels, and the original 3 movies which were damn good.) I wasn't plan on watching this movie, but the trailer changed my mind. The fast paced music with the "throb" which matches the scenes, interposed with the calmness of the long road set a great tone for the movie, long and thoughtful, yet filled with action/important scenes. It's funny, because the actual song is pretty worthless for the scene in terms of lyrics (It's a Nordic country, that's the only connection), but the tune work so effing well.

    This may be a rare example where the movie lives up to the trailer.

    The best is Mouse Trap.


    What bugs me about the TWTG are the cuts. Mesmerizing though.

    Awesome commercial.

    I think the cuts in Way was done in the interest of time, and did not represent any intervention on the part of the artists. That has always been my understanding at least.

    These are crazier, and have been at the MJT forever. They're in the eyes or on top of of needles and you view them through magnifying glasses. [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]

    I still hate comic sans. It's for people who don't understand humour, who wish to come off as being a fun person. It's the equivalent of exclamation marks denoting surprise in bad writing, an attempt to send a blatant message when you lack the skill to do it properly.

    Quote: Hush is a womb-shaped pod entirely made of wool felt and recycled wool fiber; it can completely contain a person, so that one can sit in the dark and shut out the world. The pod has a slit where one can still see out, and has more than enough space. It can also be converted into a regular chair, so the claustrophobic also have a use for it. Freyja Sewell said she created the cosy space to provide an option for people who want to be left alone in a busy, crowded area.
