"The Electric Car" of magazines

Well, it had to be made official at one point, now magazines are not merely print, they are TV on paper!! Entertainment weekly will have video ad units, an incredibly expensive feature, that would work as a pop up (think hallmark card with sound, with video).
Well don't we already have mediums that reach an audience doing the same thing and are not as expensive? Yes, some might say TV and Web have already done that, but, what do I know, I'm just a designer who only gets reminded every day how web is going to be the main medium of information in 10 years. Print is dead in 3,2...

"Rhonda": drawing 2-d no more.

I just found this article for "Rhonda", a 3-D drawing tool created by Amit Pitaru. It's tablet meets papervision, and it looks amazing. Any designer is going to want this faster than now, unfortunaly, they are still in the research stage, and are now working on an application to be released in different platforms, meaning we won't be able to buy it for a couple of years. Hope it happens soon, keeping my fingers crossed!!

UPDATE: If you subscribe in the rhondaforever website, you have access to their first beta version and there are tutorials!! download now and let me know how it works for ya!

Alright, so I happened to meet this week a few people that asked me about music and legends...maybe I'm not old enough to know all the principles of music and their originators, but I know a couple who are doing the best with what we have, flip it, scratch it and own it. Jack White never disappoints and now with the Dead Weather, he's also in really good company, Alisson Mosshart from the Kills rips it and you'll know what I mean in the video for "Treat me like your mother" below.
