Dear God,
April 18, 2008

From the founders of one of my favorite blogs, thecoolhunter.net,  comes dear-god.net; a startlingly new concept of spirituality where people from all over the planet reveal their innermost hopes and fears in the form of electronic prayers to god. Its inspiring, frightening and thought provoking with a heavy helping of art.  Its not a religious specific site, in fact I think their mission is just to provide a platform for people of any belief system to just kinda send a shout out to The Master Architect, whomever they believe that might be.  Check it out….


Cool Paper Art
April 18, 2008

Cool art from a single piece of paper...

Entries for an art contest at the Hirshorn Modern Art Gallery in D.C.  The rule was that the artist could use only one sheet of paper.  How cool is that.  Check out more contest winners…

The Sartorialist
April 9, 2008

This is a fantastic site where everyday people are photographed in the streets (read: runways) of New York, Milan, Paris and other world-class cities. Notice that Chicago is conspicuously missing from the mix; I guess Cub’s jerseys, cut-off jeans and pasty thighs are just sooo last season, LOL.  

Its a showcase of street style from a fellow I.U. alum that has become wildly popular  (in fact its one of TIME magazine’s top blogs).   If you’re curious about the name, Sartorial means “of or relating to a tailor or to tailoring” (as per Princeton Wordnet)  By the looks of it, it seems that the men are more fashion conscious than women!
