I was doing a little research about online books, and found this ironic title, The Complete Idiot’s Guide to Toltec Wisdom.  I suppose the publisher assumes there are far more complete idiots buying books than Toltec wise people.  Makes sense, although it seems kind of sad and pedestrian.  Simple no frills wisdom imparted without sacred ceremony or four day vision quest in the desert.

Geraldine and Ricky LP Album Cover

This hasn’t happened to me in awhile: getting caught up in the flow of Internet exploration. It all began when something drew me to go visit tumblr which is a website full of all sorts of mini-media blogs, I guess they’re called tumblelogs.

So, there are all these cool photos posted there, linked to other places, such as FFFFOUND! which is a very fun place to get lost in. Which is where I found the image above, at Jim’s collection of Worst Album covers of all time (plus some).

Another Grebe Triumph!  The CR-5 Radio ReceiverSpeaking of vintage artwork inspired by sound and music, I’ve been receiving scans of 1920’s Grebe radio ads which are being posted at greberadio.com.

OK, I’m out of the wormhole for now.

Lindsay Lohan as Marilyn MonroeIf you’ve got, flaunt it, but it might attract a crowd. Lindsay Lohan’s provocative poses overwhelmed New York magazine’s Web site and readers complained of not being able to load its pages, which contained nude photos of Lohan posing as Marilyn Monroe. Nice, a sexy girl brings a computer to its knees.

Meanwhile, over in The New Yorker magazine, Adam Gopnik wrote about French existentialist philosopher and feminist Simone de Beauvoir tout ensemble and spared their webmaster some grief, by not publishing the photo. So, I had to look it up, naughty boy that I am. Simon de Beauvoir nude from rearHere it is, and others by photographer Art Shay are at the Stephen Daiter Gallery website. I like his 1980’s photo of cartoonist Robert Crumb too.

Of additional interest to nude lovers, also in The New Yorker, is an excellent review by Peter Schjeldahl about The Metropolitan Museum of Art’s ten new galleries dedicated to nineteenth-century and early-twentieth-century art. About the painting below Schjeldahl writes, “The lovely, small “Bacchante by the Sea” (1865) is like a Rosetta Stone of painting, in which a studio nude and a landscape differently translate a singular, poetic imperative.” Click on the nude below to see a slide show portfolio of work on display in the new Met galleries.

The shock and awe of it began while paging through the self-congratulatory pages of CREATIVITY magazine, the trade publication celebrating the exploits of today’s advertising movers and shakers. Forever looking to capitalize on how to grab people’s golden attention and sell stuff, CREATIVITY’s madmen and women take note of Brad Neely, the writer/director/animator of The Professor Brothers series of cartoons playing on SuperDeluxe.com, an adult humor website.

Super Deluxe is sure to push your limits of acceptable taste, if you have any left, for example take Disnutskin. Is it an age of enlightenment we live in or just an ever spreading cesspool? When you wrestle away from the noise, be sure to recenter back into your own song.

This video tune was performed at the first 2007 TechCrunch Crunchies: “The 2007 Crunchies is our first annual competition and award ceremony to recognize and celebrate the most compelling startups, internet and technology innovations of the year.”

I can now say that I have worked at two Silicon Valley start-ups and witnessed the hype and the reality. It is a tough way to prototype and serendipity should never be expected.

Hero Boot Camp

Here’s a strange one. It may help you become a better salesperson, and a stronger individual, but this technique is probably not long lasting.

Alberto Gonzales The Weasel

The blogosphere apparently enjoyed the Karl Rove piglet caricature, so here is Alberto Gonzales The Weasel.

Like Gonzales, I cannot exactly recall where this idea came from.
