Check this out.

One of those really well done videos (I think). For me, another one like that would probably be Justin Timberlake’s “My love”.. With videos like this, just close your ears and enjoy the visual. Stylish. A graphic designer’s dream. Kanye at his shiniest and Rihanna at her best.. Pay attention to the importance of color and the overall “sharpness” of the visual.. There is no way a video like this could have been produced in Chicago, for example. It’s a true “Made in New York ” one.  Interesting – why? How can we sense that? It’s not the only one of its kind. Jay Z is a guy with a similar style.. Of well, he does own the record company that both Kanye and Rihanna are produced at, but still.. There something unique in it..

You know what’s funny – those who do good, will always do good by themselves and they never need anything to assist them. Those who do interdisciplinary research don’t need any societies for that, because that’s just what they do and it comes naturally to them. Those who build sustainable buildings because they consider it to be common “good practice” (which is totally true) do not need any LEED’s or any other stuff of that kind, because they beat LEED standards by a million without any major consultancy. Those who do good architecture don’t need AIA… and so on.

Whom are those societies and policies developed for then? The crowd. The herd, I’d put it more precisely. (“Who is the herd?” one might ask. I’d leave this one open for now)

Those who are strong do not need help, they know what they are doing. Those who are week don’t need societies or policies anyway, because they participate in them in a dumb, brain-free manner, thus undermining those societies’ nominal value. The percentage of those who “change their faith”, that is, who don’t know something, start to participate and then really get down to knowing things, is remarkably small. I guess those are actually the ones whom societies and policies are for, but, gosh, it’s hard to motivate oneself with that only sometimes.

1) Think Big

2) Disagree

3) Whenever you speak – shout

4) Have no shame

5) God bless you..

I know I’m late, but have you seen “the Expendables”. Here’s a  trailer for you:

An Englishman,

an ethnic Italian,

a Norwegian,

an Austrian,

a Chinese,

and an American

all fighting together against the bad guys (a Hispanic, who isn’t that bad after all, and an American – a true bad-ass). Wow! A truly multicultural shooter! (I hope you do sense the irony)
