Beautiful custom wedding paraphernalia by Mike Mates for his own woodlands ceremony. This is the level of work I’d expect any creative professional to put into their so-called Most Important Day. I’m not getting hitched until I’m ready to coordinate this sort of campaign.
Month: September 2010
Here’s a sushi-themed congratulatory cake some of us bought for the 2nd branch of Standing Sushi Bar (8 Queen Street, right by the Singapore Art Museum). Really beautiful work.
This post was willed into existence by Howard, the owner, who wrote on Facebook:
“This cake reminds me of something Brandon would link to on his blog.”
➟ Jason Schwarztman introduces the New Yorker iPad app
A finer or funnier video today you will not see. Every second is a glimmering of gratuitous quirkiness.
➟ Giant Inflatable Japanese Woman for LumixA great idea, executed with just the right amount of creepiness and awesome. Could stand to be bigger.
➟ 30th Asakusa Samba Carnival
Last month’s 30th annual Samba carnival in Asakusa, from The Japan Times. I’ve only ever seen photos, so this was a good way to get a feel of the atmosphere (and the weirdness of the floats).
➟ Bi King Whopper promo in JapanAn all-you-can-eat Whopper deal for the price of a meal with fries and a drink. Time limit: 30 minutes. Fun fact: buffet-style concepts are called “Viking” in Japan, and “V” is usually mapped to a “B” sound, hence the name.
