So tonight, instead of jogging / walking like I should... I met up with a long time friend, Erin. We ate tons of Chinese at Plum Tree (and I give it a thumbs up on sketchiness, and tastiness) and quickly decided we were too full to even walk so we headed to the new chinese supermart (Asian Sunshine.. or something quirky and cute in that nature!). and oh boy! did we find some goodies! it was senses overload... First the smells (some good, mostly bad... think kitty litter box), then tons o' tons of overwhelming graphics (see the Pocky graphics! too fun) and then the fishies and meaties... ewww ewww.. so many pigs heads and bull testicals and live crawfish! Above are a few pics.. but all and all a fun fun day! I didn't brave the waters and get anything (unlike Erin, she racked up!) but I'll totes go back!

Vintage Arcade Posters from Designer and art director Nick Dart has an amazing collection of graphic design from the 70's & 80's arcade era on his blog, Art of the Arcade. Here's a selection from his illustration, flyer, and logo sections.
This is sooo inspiration for WonderWorks and other graphic endeavors I'm working on, so I had to share! and many thanks Franklin for this find (via Google Reader). for more awesome examples visit color lover!
Entertainment legend and philanthropist Dolly Parton burst onto the stage at Thompson-Boling Arena this morning belting out "Rocky Top," a favorite University of Tennessee theme song, before giving a commencement speech marked by laughter and applause and receiving an honorary degree. - via knoxnews
When I graduated I don't think we even got an outsider to speak... Damn Arts and Sciences, don't these bitches know I love Dolly!
I stumbled upon this great site, Film the Blanks. The Author redesigns famous movie posters... unfortunately I'm not clever enough to figure out all the posters, but its a great time waster... fo'sho! and the graphics are really beautiful... totes worth checkin' out

While I didn't know William Kristopher Kendrick personally, I knew his work. Living and working Downtown I came in contact with so much that he did. Thanks for all you did.
His legacy has included structural gems all over town, from Patrick Sullivan's Saloon and The Emporium in the Old City to The Lord Lindsey and the Hotel St. Oliver downtown to The Dulin, once home to Knoxville's art gallery, and The Orangery, a continental restaurant he founded, on Kingston Pike.
"A lot of the Old City wouldn't be here if Kristopher hadn't purchased it. A lot of what he did was attain buildings that otherwise would have been demolished and kept them alive and in use today," said Knox Heritage Executive Director Kim Trent... more info

Sent a text and immediately regretted it. Texting instead of callin' is great! almost always preferred! but there are the few too many drunken nights I send the embarrassing text. This site, Texts From Last Night has compiled those. its Tots funny!
But I found this too cute site, NORTON HERO, where I made myself a super hero... and for the record, yes, I am holding a mouse (that's my weapon - since I have great intelligence, ha!) and I figure since I'm ethnic I needed the jungle wear outfit.
Boy! do I wish I really had super powers! I think I would like to run really really fast... I mean think of the benefits...
1. I wouldn't have to watch my weight, which is always a struggle
2. I wouldn't be late, also another struggle
3. Its like being invisible, cause its sooooo fast!
4. I could travel anywhere!
5. I wouldn't have to fly (I hate flying - mainly heights)
if you go to the site and make one too, upload it! i tots want to see it!
AWESOME! and an amazing live show. These guys rock! as if I had any doubt after I saw them open for Radiohead about a year ago, but Two Weeks from the album Veckatimest is rockin' my face off. The continuing beat of the piano, the layered vocals. The only thing missing is the splat of the horns (saxaphone, maybe?) at the beginning. But Christ! what a great live performance.

Nothing new, but great both songs are great to work to. There is something about computering (graphics and architecting) that makes 'electronic' music feel more valid.
if the artists or anyone associated with the songs would like these removed, please email me. thanks.
why do you have to go and encourage stereotypes? Not everyone in 'Brown Town' loves the colonel?!?! and even if they did, they don't want your not fried KFC chicken! No one wants, (gasp!) grilled chicken from KFC... get a clue home slice... and please.. don't make this one of your favorite things!
I stumbled upon this link via SmashingMag (best resource ever) on twitter. And I am in awe! I have book marked these! and Can't wait to try some out! If I had done enough blogging today, this could have been one of many winx to linx, but instead... its just one really really good looking site with tuts! enjoy!
