I’m sure there’s a few marks on the road (hence all the broom handle moving) but the absolute nonchalance and confidence these guys have to just DRAW HUGE LETTERS is pretty great. With one hand literally behind his back!

Rossmom sent me this, and I found it too spot on not to post. Some quick notes:

  • If you don’t know what it means, you should look up “shtupping“.
  • They nail the camera work. Nice touch.
  • Who puts matzah out at the end of Yom Kippur? Nobody. That’s who.
  • Everything bagels. THIS IS ACCURATE.

I'm getting a lance and going right at these guys next time.

Let me be clear here, guys. You should bike. You should bike on the road. But you should bike with traffic. Just because you’re a cyclist doesn’t mean you don’t have to obey laws. Well, at least that one because it’s really irritating and dangerous.

No...

First there was FACTBOMB, now “subtle bomb”. Here it is, demonstrated by myself and my friend Meredith.

No, I wasn’t falling over at the end. Just sitting down. Feel free to send in your own examples…

Systemic J. Gough sent word of this scary jet-powered death bike, a great followup to the Tallest and Fastest Bike Stories I posted back in April. Also this comic about speeding.

Watching him ride on a flat tire is scary, I almost died that way once (though there were no jets involved).

In case you’re asking yourself “hey, this isn’t the normal stuff Rosscott posts about”, I’m featuring this for three reasons:

  1. Beer.
  2. It features my good buddy Nate Oyler, who built HilariAwesome.com. (He’s the one who describes how stupid simple it is to brew beer.)
  3. Beeeeeer.

More about the doc can be found here.

This has been going around and is pretty great. Just think how long it would’ve taken to cut out all those letters. This was created by Ben Barrett-Forrest

Don’t worry. I saw it.

Today’s Google Doodle (when they change the main image on Google.com?) is in honor of Saul Bass’ 93rd birthday. Saul Bass was an amazing graphic designer who also worked on movie title sequences (as well as posters for) many films, including many Alfred Hitchcock films. Or, to put it another way, you know that poster behind Wilson’s desk in House?

Saul Bass.

If you want to read more about Saul Bass’ career start with his Wikipedia page. And you may also want to check out this listing of all the Google Doodles and their history, it’s an interesting read.

Like I said in 640, our show at Awesome Con was pretty amazing. Steve McBarnes was kind enough to post videos of the first two (of a total of 3) rounds, so here they are! The second round featured Michael Bracco and Noelle “Gingerhaze” Stevenson, and you’re about to be blown away by how awesome it gets. Seriously art fighting at it’s best.

Round 1

End of Round 1, Beginning Round 2

Round 3

If you’re ever at a Super Art Fight show, take video. We love when we find this stuff.

Last week Geoff (my Friendly Design Bro) introduced me to a game called Ridiculous Fishing, which I wholeheartedly recommend to you all. Here’s the highlights:

  • You try and avoid fish while your lure attempts to make its way further downward to the bottom of the lake/sea/ocean.
  • You have a chainsaw.
  • Once you snag a fish, you try and grab as many as you can on your way back up.
  • When you get to the surface, they all shoot into the air!
  • THEN YOU SHOOT THEM WITH A GUN.
It’s a fun game with an amazing art style. If you’re wondering exactly what looks so “off” about it, let me just ruin it for you: ALL OF THE ARTWORK IS AT 45 DEGREE ANGLES. This is the straight up baller design equivalent of playing basketball with two hands tied behind your back. Or something.
Anyway it’s cool, you should play it.
