New Stuff and Inspiration
Street graffitti for the populace
We love this idea! Talk bubble stickers were printed and people stuck them all over NYC> the concept called The Bubble Project. There are some truly funny knee slappers on there, as well as some thought provokers. Click the bubble, then paruse the diff categories of bubbles. Good stuff.
Oh, I wish I had a pencil thin mustache…
Not sure who the brains behind an oreo pizza was, but wow. That’s all, just wow. Domino’s pizza is at it again, trying to find some new trans fat laden junk bomb to deliver to your door (god help you’d get off your arse and go actually pick one up). Some of us at Sukle find this unit just hideous, some seem to think it’d be good. I’m sure you can tell where I stand on the thing. Anyway, the old saying goes, “you can’t polish a turd”. Well, guess what? They have! Gool ‘ol C, P+B have made this thing truly funny, and we are issuing props to them. Mustache jokes never get old.
CORRECTION: this one was done by JWT. thx for the comment on that-
I mean, really?!
To be honest, we’re all sorta baffled at this one, but somehow our toilet stunt at the CSU/CU game was deemed worthy to be stock on Getty Images. Um, not sure how, or when, this type of imagery will come in handy for someone’s campaign, but kudos to Getty for trying. The best part of the image is that I heard the images were up, so I searched “toilet football”. Classic.
Cut paper is much better than paper cuts.
Umm, this is f*%@ing amazing stuff. If you haven’t even checked out Peter Callesen’s cut paper art, wow, you should. This guy takes paper sculpture to the absolute next level, and it all comes from one sheet. You won’t believe this…
Things SHE loves.
One of our resident fashionistas has turned us onto the ‘things we love’ section on the Kate Spade site. Now, some of us are all up in the fashion scene, some not, but no matter who you are, this is cool. Lots of random stuff, but put together in a really cool way. Check it out.
And, they have good ads?
We here at Sukle are big fans of the Stella Artoris, this is for sure. And, this summer as I stumbled around Italy, I noticed some really, really sweet posters and ads up in some clandestine, and some not so clandestine, spots for this lovely malt beverage. Unfortunately, I have no pics to show of this (d’oh), but i did pull up this poster. The idea for the campaign was hatched, apparently, by Lowe London in London. But, the design was done by our favs, Aesthetic Apparatus. Man, these guys just keep rocking it. Anyway, will look for some more of them and post- all of ’em I saw were top notch.
live music on the net. neat.
Our buddy Paul Isakson sent me this link today. Cool live vids of some indie sorts of bands.. and all playing ‘informal’ shows out on the street. It’s called Blogotheque, and it’s made by Frenchies. I’m linking you to the English page, assuming most of you aren’t speaking French much these days.
See them here.
kid friendly, not rated aaaaarrrrrrrrrgh!
We recently put some temporary tattoos up on the site we did for Denver Water (UseOnlyWhatYouNeed.org. If you haven’t been, go- free UOWYN swag and games and such) and have been getting some mail from folks with them on. Feel free to send them in if you have any shots….. we prefer kid friendly shots, but we will look at anything once.
The tattoos are all spoofs of traditional tattoo themes, only using conservation and water issues as the slogans or concepts. And yes, I know all of you have always wanted that tribal armband tattoo (god, how the ladies adore them), so, we’ve def included one, as well as gothic gangsta letters to go across your stomach. Note, they work best where no hair is growing, so all you wanna be gangstas, pls get a stomach wax before application (yikes!).
Living green doesn't just mean wearing burlap.
We found some cool sites using green/enviro friendly materials to make stuff that’s actually cool.
Scrapile is a company in Brooklyn that gathers scraps from most furniture producers in their areas, then laminates the scraps together and makes really cool furniture.
Mioculture has cool home accessories. check it.
6 slab friday.
We took it upon ourselves to search the metro area for the best BBQ this summer. Ribs were sampled, fingers licked. We were on the quest to find the best around. And guess what? The best was right under our noses the whole time!
Today we had 6 slab friday and our resident in-house retouch master, production stylist and grilled meats uber pro (a.k.a. Matt) whipped us up the best ribs I’ve had since back home in GA. Wow, these guys rocked. We managed to mow them all, and now feel like we could all use a nap.
