Window Washer

I was making myself a cup of coffee few hours earlier and the most beautiful evening light came trough my kitchen window.
It was a funny day, I spent it all working on my computer and therefore didn't even notice the fluctuating weather much, not until I looked out my kitchen window as I was waiting for the kettle to boil.

Yeti, machete, poison confetti - artwork of Nathan W Pyle

I can't remember where I saw his work first, but I followed the links and found Nathan W Pyle's blog with some of the funniest posters I have seen in a while. They're witty, smart and to the point and it's just the kind of tongue-in-cheek humour I love.

I guess my favourite of all is the Danger Quiz, the "Yeti, machete, poison confetti" is going to be in my mind forever:

Danger Quiz by Nathan W Pyle

I laugh every time I look at it! I also loved these:

Plus Dur, Meilleur, Plus Rapide, Plus Fort

I bookmarked this video and then forgot all about it.

The Truth About Smart

I enjoy good advertising.

Living around a graphic designer who used to work in advertising made me immune to most of ads and majority of attempts to sway me towards a particular product of a brand, because I'm concious of "how it works". I think good advertising is a work of art, I like thoughtful and well executed work.

Serious case of déjà écouté

I've heard Sara Blasko's All I Want today and I couldn't help the sense of déjà écouté. The more I heard, the more I was sure I never heard her sing before, but certainly heard someone just like her. I dug in the web a little and certainly she's a little bit like Meiko, a wee bit like that girl who did Innocence with Delerium, Leigh Nash, and a bit like someone else, but I can't put a finger on it. Maybe like Beth Gibbons from Portishead.

Jean Pierre Jeunet and Marc Caro

Jan Pierre Jeunet and Marc Caro should make more movies. They are just the kind of movies I love.

Everything is fine tuned to perfection, he casts fantastic actors and the colours... the music.. the stories..

Hellblazer and Peas

I was reading the Hellblazer - an ingenious graphic novel from DC comics about John Constantine's bizzare life that's a bit too scary to read alone in the dark, but I can't resist.

I was reading some nail-biting episode when I saw this:

Still makes me laugh.
If anyone remembers wich episode it was in, do let me know.

The Wolfman with Anthony Hopkins, Benicio del Toro, Emily Blunt and Agent Smith

---Warning - Spoilers!---

I went to see the Wolfman today. Generally a "lovely" movie with some nice action and CG.

Standing Fishes, bugges by night and other biblical miracles.

I have gotten my hands on the full list of Bibles with misprints and unusual readings and I decided to share some of the best with you:

Bug Bible (1535)

Psalms 91:5 “Thou shall not nede to be afrayed for eny bugges by night”

Later translated as terrors.

Breeches Bible (1579)

Genesis 3:7 “and they sowed figge-tree leaves together, and made themselves breeches.

Later translated as aprons.

Place-makers’ Bible (1562)

Matthew 5:9 reads “Blessed are the placemakers: for they shall be called the children of God.”

Stojące ryby, robaki w nocy i inne cudeńka Biblijne

Dopadłam pęłną listę słynnych błędów zecerskich i chochlików drukarskich w Biblii (w angielskim tłumaczeniu).

Postanowiłam wrzucić najlepsze cudeńka:
(z tłumaczeniem na Polski)

Bug Bible (1535) Biblia Robaków

Psalms 91:5 “Thou shall not nede to be afrayed for eny bugges by night”
(Księga Psalmów) “Nie ulękniesz się robaków nocnych”

Skąd się wzieło? W średnioangielskim ( ok. 1150 - 1450 ) “bugge” oznaczało ducha lub coś strasznego. J

Breeches Bible (1579) Biblia Szortów.

Genesis 3:7 “and they sowed figge-tree leaves together, and made themselves breeches.”
