An animated short to promote Swarovski’s crystal line by Mr. Court Productions.
I also love the illustrations of Brigette Barager. “Camille”, “Theo”, “Pierre” and “Marie” are like my cats.

Spent way too much time on this since I first learned to use the computer in the ’80s. I still do. Spend time, that is.
I remember reading about Patrick Stewart being a Tetris fan and I felt comfort in knowing I was ‘sort of’ in good company. (Here’s the article fortunately still available for reading). Especially since other reads were too inclined towards scary calculations and math variables such as Ivaar Peterson’s article .
Fast-forward 21st century, researchers found a better way of qualifying Tetris through clinical tests that suggested it helped reduce Post-traumatic stress disorder [PSTD] (REF.) This is a nice angle to this addiction. It at least proved Alexey Pajitnov and friends’ hobby had social and medical value.
Happy birthday, Tetris. I know I’ll grow old still playing you.

Preview/listen to Note To God on iTunes
(That’s all for this blog. If it interests you to read more of my thoughts on Charice, it’s in one of my two other cross-posts, here)
Matthew Inman is a web virtuoso. Very few citizens who populate the web in one form, type or other is as savvy as he: a designer, a developer, a CTO (that’s: Chief Technology Officer — which makes him a Technologist, too, I guess), a web marketer, “Linkbait Developer & Viral Marketer” (his words) and, above all, a web artiste.
How else can one capture a whole virtual concept into a simple visual and be beautiful and understood without the pain of complex processing information?
But isn’t that what masters do: squeeze out the philosophy effortlessly, then show the nuggets in the palm of their hands?
Posted and seen two days ago (08 July 2008). Blogged today.
Beautiful, isn’t it?.
Matthew Inman’s Summer.
