An important reminder from Ralph Waldo Emerson

Joshua Kemble (quoting Ralph Waldo Emerson) has an important reminder and it’s a more eloquent version of the saying, “DO YOU.”

Wayne White has a way with words

Wayne White (former designer for the TV show Pee-wee’s Playhouse) does spectacular word paintings. In my future home, I want the “NO” painting above the fireplace mantle. Take that, Tumblr people who just layer text in Helvetica on pictures of nebulas!

Under Consideration Quarterly? Don’t mind if I throw money at the screen.

Under Consideration Quarterly is the brain (super) child of the fine folks at Under Consideration. The idea is simple: take the best stuff they ever post on their foursome of fabulosity (Art of the Menu, Brand New, For Print Only, and Quipsologies) and put it all in printed issues you can touch, smell, taste, whatever it is you enjoy doing with books made out of paper nowadays. What’s also neat is that they know people don’t like to read stuff, so each issue only contains project images and their titles. Isn’t that awesome? Now look at the pictures below and don’t tell me you’d rather spend your money on a new iPad sleeve.

The MiiR tumbler does much more than your favorite childhood Thermos

The MiiR Tumbler is a neat coffee/tea tumbler that gives back to those in need. Each Tumbler provides one person with clean drinking water for an entire year and comes with a unique tracking bracelet that has an engraved identification number. The personal identification number can be entered into the MiiR tracking system online, allowing you to see what project you helped fund! Isn’t that nifty? It comes in different colors, too. Yay! Options!
