Check out this obsessive work constructed with 100,000 staples by UK artist and designer Peter Root.
Stacks of staples were broken into varying sizes from full stacks about 12cm high down to single staples. These stacks were then stood up and arranged over a period of 40 hours.

Had a friend in town last week that lit up a cigarette every five minutes. Sorry my friend, but that wasn’t San Francisco Fog, it was a cloud of smoke following you around everywhere.
It’s Monday morning madness and this is a crazy video directed by Valerie Pirson for the 1974 song Bubble Sex by The Disco Chicken Project was the first item in my inbox.
I am digging the Stuart Price produced new track from the Scissor Sisters . I loved their version of Pink Floyd’s Comfortably Numb and the new track, Invisible Light, from their upcoming album “Night Work”, has a very Pink Floyd sound to it. I hope this is a sign of the direction of the new album.
The new Puma shoe box design by Yves Béhar has been three years in the making and I think it’s a great idea and a step in the right direction. The outer bag is made from recycled PET but it’s unclear if it’s recyclable and I don’t think this design qualifies for Cradle to Cradle certification but it’s great to see Puma is taking an interest in new ways to package products, thus reducing waste and inefficiency in producing packaging. I would like to know how the shoes are going to be shipped. The advantage of the shoe box is it’s ability to withstand pressure when stacked and boxed for shipping long distances. If the cardboard interior of the new packaging can withstand the same pressure as an original shoe box design, while cutting down on waste and cost, then this design will go far but if this is just for show on the consumer side and it’s actually shipped inside a shoe box to the stores, then Houston, we have a problem.
I don’t often watch reality shows because I know they’re manipulated to enhance the drama and rarely do I see true talent. But this 2010 season trailer for Finland´s Next Top Model looks fun and puts tired old Tyra’s tyrannical mess of a show to shame.

Trippy video for song Vital Signs by Midnight Juggernauts directed by Krozm. The new album,The Crystal Axis, comes out on May 28th. Is it me or are they channeling some David Bowie?

Turn the music down on this one, it’s awful. Silence would have been more effective.
