Today’s STATUS QUOtes

“What you do on your bad days matters more than what you do on your good days.” — Kevin Kelly

SignEdge: Dirty Driving

You might have read the story of my first off-roading experience HERE. I came to realize that there is a strong culture among off-roaders and they are fiercely protective of their passion for seeing hard-to-reach places.

Among those who share this hobby/sport there is apparently a subclass of women off-roaders who have a very spunky attitude.

While I was shopping the other day, a large purple Jeep caught my eye. The color was very unusual and it had a number of decals on the rear window. Among those decals was one that said “Super Girl.”

Upon closer inspection, I found the following attitudinal off-roading images:


“Buckle up I Want to Try Something”

 


“Don’t Follow Me You Won’t Make It”

 

And my favorite…


“Yours May Go Fast But Mine Can Go Anywhere”

Humor: Going from Point to Point

Noted Cartoonist, Gary Larson has re-released much of his Far Side cartoon collection. For those who don’t know, he takes a somewhat skewed look at the world in which we live. Another characteristic of his humor is his frequent use of animals and “play” on common themes, ideas and trends.

The cartoon below is one good example of his style of visual quips.

Dogs that Are Scaredy Cats

Almost everyone knows the phrase – “The bigger they come, the harder they fall.” Watching this video you can witness this platitude in action.

Cats and dogs are filmed in confrontations where size doesn’t always dictate which way the encounter goes. I think you will get a few laughs from watching these animal antics and if you watch to the end, you may see a few surprises!

SignEdge: An Au Contraire Wine

Wine labels are really a new art form. With so many good to very good wines available at very reasonable prices, vineyards need a way to catch the eye of the prospective buyer.

I suppose a very bright label might spark an interest in one type of customer while a more subtle, but still clever label might attract another personality type.

As for me, I enjoy any wine label that is “different” which brings me to today’s SignEdge label from the Taub Family via the Russian River Valley.


Here is the back label which is somewhat hard to read, but I think you will get the idea that they are proud of David. S. Taub, the company’s founder.


You can read some of the history and story behind the wine at Palm Bay International.

Video: Visa’s Monkey Business Commerical

This is one of the most clever commercials I have seen in a long time. It isn’t like some of those inane commercials by a few companies who shall rename nameless. Someone working for Visa actually thought long and hard about this one and executed it well.

I think you will really like it!

Video: Line Riders – Beethoven’s 5th

I think everyone will enjoy this ultra creative cartoon-based version of Ludwig van Beethoven’s 5th Symphony. Most people may be familiar with the music because it has been used hundreds of times in movies, advertising, etc.

What sets this apart from other creative endeavors is the painstaking timing of the cartoon “line riders.” They are amazing and mesmerizing. Do yourself a favor and watch this.

From the YouTube Web Page

I spent over 3 months synchronizing a line rider track to Beethoven’s 5th drawing everything by hand.

Any time a character leaves the screen they are being directed by unseen lines to the next location.

This is not the full length of the piece. I spliced together parts to make it possible for me to finish the project in a practical amount of time. I don’t think my sanity could handle 3 more months of this song.

YouTube post processing seems to create a few millisecond audio delay if you are watching on the mobile YouTube app. If you notice this, watching the video in any web browser won’t have this problem.
