Motorpsycho – Pstereofestivalen 2009

Published august 25th, 2009 by

It was a joy to watch Motorpsycho live again, they don’t play very often anymore. I had hoped to hear more of their golden back catalog, but at least they played Greener, one of my favorite songs. Check out come of the pictures I took for p3.no at their concert when they played the Pstereo festival.

Bastard Chairs

Published april 25th, 2009 by

Photographer Michael Wolf has documented something as unusual chairs on his travels in China, or as he calls them: Bastard Chairs.

I am rather keen on making something like this tree-trunk chair for a future DIY project. I originally wanted to create a chair from a root, by I believe it will be easier to find somethinglike this:

But do check out his pictures for more interesting gems like this office chair with a home made foot created with a bucket and sement.

Playing with Iphone photo distortions

Published april 19th, 2009 by

It turns out that my new Iphone creates some very interesting “effects” if you take pictures under certain conditions. Bright light plus movement as you take the picture makes the image warp, due to how the Iphone captures the image, almost like a scanner, calling for hours of future fun (see a few of my experiments below).

Wired has written about this, check out Take Distorted and Psychedelic iPhone Photos

There are even iPhone distortions Flickr groups (thanks to Retroper for the link)

Pensilsharpeners for a better planet

Published februar 8th, 2009 by

If you have kids then you probably have a drawer full of pens and pencils, some good, some broken. In our house there are pencils spread out EVERYWHERE, I find a few every time we clean the house, and in the weirdest of places. I usually just dump them in this drawer, and pull it out whenever the kids want to draw.

But one day when I was home taking care of my daughter who had the flu, I decided to take stock, sort the broken from the usable, and sharpen them all.

I found some empty tomato cans to put them in, and sorted the pencils after their color family.
And lo and behold, would you believe that my three kids has kept this simple system in order for well over a month now! I’m so impressed with them!
