A Visual Life – The Sartorialist

The Sartorialist is on of my favourite photography/style blogs for ages. Intel decided to make a 7 min documentary about Scott Schumann, the man behind this incredibly popular blog. It’s gives a beautiful insight in what he does, how and why:


Warning: cute overload

Earlier this week I came across the video below and I feel that everyone I know MUST watch this. Meet Marcel the Shell, the cutest, little animation I have seen. Marcel is the love child of Jenny Slate’s and Dean’s (Fleischer-Camp) creative minds, which you can read more about here. I really hope we can expect more of these animated shots soon!

Chris Anderson reads my posts!

As mentioned before I sometimes blog for TEDxAmsterdam, the little sister of TED. It seems that we are being watched by our big brother though. Chris Anderson, curator of TED and nr. 7 in Fast Company’s most creative people 2010, apparently reads our TEDxAmsterdam posts as well. Today he tweeted about super talented Emma Bruns and her endearing story, a post that I have written. For me personally it’s is great to talk with and get to know so many great people that are involved with TEDxAmsterdam and that people actually read what I write. For Emma it’s awesome to see that her story a year after presenting is still spreading. Just a few of the reasons why I love TED and the internet!

Random acts of kindness ftw

It’s been a while that I heard about the Swedish magazine T-Post, the world’s first wearable magazine. As they explain on their website: “Every five weeks, subscribers receive a new t-shirt in the mail. News story on the inside. Artist interpretation on the front. All-around conversation piece.”

T-Post Issue nr. 51 - Higher Education Or Just Plain High

T-Post Issue nr. 51 - Higher Education Or Just Plain High

Cool concept with great graphic t-shirts, but it doesn’t stop there. Inspired by real-life superheroes (and maybe a little Kick-Ass) they invite everyone to unleash their inner superhero and perform a good deed. The fun thing is they want you to do it while wearing a superhero costume and film it so it can be shared with the rest of the world. The video with the most views wins $1,000 or a lifetime subscription to T-post. Being a big fan of random kindness (one of the reasons why I believe in the tattoo I got), I absolutely love this contest. You too? You can enter your video untill June 14th. For a smile on your face, check the video below or all the all the other entries so far here.
