I’m not a gamer by any means, though there are a hand full of games I love and the rest frustrate me to no end. I miss the two dimensional days of Mario for Nintendo and Tetras. I have found a 3D game with no boundaries that I enjoy. It’s Flower for the PS3.
This game can be downloaded right from the PlayStation Store through the conceal itself. The concept of the game is you are the wind. Which you control by moving the controller and pushing just one button. Simple. You collect petals as you blow past trails of blossoms. It’s up lifting as you move through the levels changing what was once brown fields into lovely colour. I love it and have to laugh when I find myself leaning into the game.
“Reviewers praised the game’s music, visuals, and gameplay, calling it a unique and compelling emotional experience. It was named the “best independent game of 2009” at the Spike Video Game Awards, and won the “Casual Game of the Year” award by the Academy of Interactive Arts and Sciences.” [wikipedia]
Click HERE to be wowed!! Great music, no matter how you play it. My favourite is the video that starts off as a city scape. Try playing it on it’s own, every meditative and the video is cute too.
What the? Ok, this isn’t next weeks yoga pose or a new hybrid style the west invented. Can you guess what this image is trying to sell you? CLICK HERE to find out. Also, see five other ads that you won’t believe exist. They are all selling women products in the most bizarre ways.

I wanted to share with you the ringtone I’m using on my phone, but there isn’t enough space on my blog site to host the mp3… so, I thought of the next best thing. The full length video. Enjoy Root Down by The Beastie Boys and enjoy your weekend.
You can get this bendy straw from the juice bar next door to Y-Plus Yoga Center in Shanghai. Great idea.
This is for all those who appreciate graphic design and art. What a clever use of negative space. Things like this excite and inspire me to come up with that really smart design, the kind that make you giggle. Well, they make me giggle… is that weird?
