Over the years there has been some outstanding whiteboard marker illustration videos, like Drive: The Surprising Truth about what Motivates Us [1], Where Good Ideas Come From by Steven Johnson, or variations like James & Amy’s Electric Fence [MV] (drawn by James Cooper).

Spanish artist Pablo Morales de los Rios takes a look at the history of music and lays it out all on the table.

It’s a thing of beauty.

My big bro is coming to visit me!

As you all know, I haven’t seen my Vancouver friends in 6 years or longer. Up until last year, when I got to see some of them in Seoul [1], but these last few days, my friend’s wife was machinating his coming to Peru for his birthday, and he finally found out!

So I’m marking my calendar down!

TINY-G’s concept is funny. Short girls, who don’t fit he Korean girl group standard of being 1.60m in height at least, are put together. They’re all 18 except for the member who is 15 (the short-haired one). And it doesn’t hurt that they’re all super cute in a non-lolita way. They wear super baggy clothing and look more like they can pull a prank on you than put a move on a guy.

As far as Korean pop music concepts, it doesn’t hurt.

Their latest single, MINIMANIMO [MV], is quite catchy. However, I’m most taken aback by the non-speaking member Mint, from Thailand. So she’s still learning to speak Korean (very well a commendable choice), I wouldn’t even mind at all if TINY-G ever decided to drop a whole verse in Thai just for kicks in one of their future singles.

Having said that, I’m crazy for Mint’s hair. It looks flawless. And she seems to be the shortest one. She’s already become my bias in a group I don’t really have a bias for.

I never thought I would see the day when Nicole Kidman would USAGI [1]. On a red carpet… posing for hundreds of red carpet photographers and for all of us to see. I LOVE IT.

For years now, I stopped my mandatory affair with Internet Explorer — since I went in to work with web, in fact. It’s also been years since I last used Firefox because it had been too chunky, so Chrome had been my choice of browser. I don’t know if I could go back, EVER. Maybe. If the signs were right. Still, my inability to care for IE doesn’t hamper how nostalgic this commercial was.

And mother of gawd~ Tamagotchi.

And I effing worked Logo Writer. xD
