Their Circular Life

“Their Circular Life” is yet another fascinating photography project that captures the very essence of the transient nature of life when studied against an exploration of human behavior.
Using interactive time lapse photography, the project investigates the link between different urban places and the behavior of the humans who visit these places within a 24-hour timeframe. Using a scroll wheel, you can scroll through a day in different places in Italy.
Yes, because your surrounding knows you better than you know her.

Fabulust

Paintings exhbited at Tokyo’s 2004 Design Week. Very cool… I love the way the painting is whole yet incomplete.
I strongly recommend skimming through Tokyo’s 2004 Design Week slideshow, it has some very interesting stuff. The Japanese never fail to amaze me.

Jeeda

This is Jeeda Dallal, my unbelievably adorable 2-months-old baby cousin, who’s basically one more girl to add to a family dominated by boysies.

Lyrics of No Doubt’s “Don’t Speak”

You and me
We used to be together
Every day together always

I really feel
That I’m losing my best friend
I can’t believe
This could be the end

It looks as though you’re letting go
And if it’s real,
Well I don’t want to know

Don’t speak
I know just what you’re saying
So please stop explaining
Don’t tell me ’cause it hurts
Don’t speak
I know what you’re thinking
I don’t need your reasons
Don’t tell me ’cause it hurts

Our memories
They can be inviting
But some are altogether
Mighty frightening

As we die, both you and i
With my head in my hands
I sit and cry

Don’t speak
I know just what you’re saying
So please stop explaining
Don’t tell me ’cause it hurts no no no
Don’t speak
I know what you’re thinking
And I don’t need your reasons
Don’t tell me ’cause it hurts

It’s all ending,
I gotta stop pretending who we are…

You and me
I can see us dying… are we?

Don’t speak
I know just what you’re saying
So please stop explaining
Don’t tell me ’cause it hurts no no
Don’t speak
I know what you’re thinking
And I don’t need your reasons
Don’t tell me ’cause it hurts
Don’t tell me ’cause it hurts
I know what you’re saying
So please stop explaining
Don’t speak don’t speak don’t speak
No I know what you’re thinking
And I don’t need your reasons
I know you good I know you good
I know you real good oh

La la la la la la la la la
Don’t don’t ooh ooh
Hush hush darling
Hush hush darling
Hush hush don’t tell me ’cause it hurts
Hush hush darling
Hush hush darling
Hush hush don’t tell me ’cause it hurts

The Scream

Edvard Munch’s “The Scream” is one of those paintings that I can’t quite decide whether I love or hate. It is, after all, a direct symbolism of what myself and so many other people feel like at various times in our lives, and a feeling I would spend my life trying to avoid.

Munch painted this work to express loneliness and awful despair. Standing, screaming…

Yes, That’s Real Money in There

That’s what I call great advertising.

Monopoly and Funoon

Alright, picture sharing mood, for after all, sharing is caring, and this is the first time I see these pictures so I’m rather excited.
Syria department trip again, this time we’re all playing Monopoly(my back to the camera) late at night and eating brick-oven grilled chestnuts.. Fadi and I cheated our way to victory…
Yes, I know, we’re a pleasant bunch.

Ban Comic Sans

There are tons of horribly ugly fonts, and worse yet, there are tons more people who exploit ugly fonts(like I’m exploiting Comic Sans now). And maybe thats why fonts become ugly, because when you think about it, if certain fonts were only used in the right instances…
According to
Ban Comic Sans,”These widespread abuses of printed type threaten to erode the very foundations upon which centuries of typographic history are built. While we recognize the font may be appropriate in a few specific instances, our position is that the only effective means of ending this epidemic of abuse is to completely ban Comic Sans” Ok, they might be taking it too seriously, but whatever, I agree.

Ban Comic Sans!(Or alternatively, you can join the Comic Sans Appreciation Society)
