Knock-offs

Maybe it is the life-cop in me. Maybe I watched too many Batman and Spider-man episodes when growing up. Nevertheless, it irks me when I see smaller, innovative designers get their imagination ripped-off by uber-corporations that care less about creativity and craftsmanship, and more about profits and operating efficiencies. I — Continue reading

Modern Massage Lounger

I admit it…I am that guy at the mall who is hogging the massage chair at Brookstone or Sharper Image. Luckily, I am rarely there. The thing is, I can’t ever get myself to buy one…they are so…80′s? Lazy-boy? Sky Mall? Luckily, modern design has caught up with massage technology. — Continue reading

Modern Faucets

When I had to replace the faucets in my bathroom, I thought I was doomed. It was either cheap, ugly stuff (not an option) or very expensive, better designed stuff. Problem is, all bathroom sinks had the same fixtures from the mid 80′s. So that meant replacing several. Little did — Continue reading

I have been looking for some visual eye candy for the Plasma screen. Sort of the screen-saver when you are not watching TV, but want some background interest.

People send me little trinkets of stuff via email all the time: jokes, crazy chain letters, pictures, videos of all sorts, etc. I am sure you get these as well. Some go directly into the trash bin, others you might keep or forward to a few peeps. The one I — Continue reading
