…It’s Things Thursday: Something?

SomethingStore

Are you the type of person that likes surprises?

Then you’re probably the type of person that would like the SomethingStore, a website that sends you “something, an item selected randomly among many things from our inventory, for $10 (free shipping) and you will find out what your something is when you receive it”.

What could this something be?

    It may be something you need, something you want or something you desire. (Though it also may be total crap.)

    Yours may be a cool gadget, rare book, table game, handmade necklace, reverse clock, box of gourmet chocolates, set of shiny shower curtains, popular video game, big-box retailer gift card, the latest version of a software, a set of kitchen knives, a pair of designer jeans, garden tool, kitchen appliance, unique home decor item, electronic equipment, magazine subscription, office supply item, or…

    Your something will most likely be brand new, though it may also be refurbished or antique.

So SomethingStore can send you anything?

Well, besides “items or services that are illegal to trade in United States”, yes!

Sound good?

Then discover your something is today.

…You Suck At Photoshop has been interviewed?

You Suck At Photoshop

If you liked the You Suck At Photoshop series, then be sure to check out Time Magazine’s interview with co-creators Matt Bledsoe and Troy Hitch.

    “It was meant to be a one-off thing,” said Hitch. “But two weeks later, we checked into YouTube and saw that it had 50,000 page views. We went to Rob and said, ‘Hey, we might take a sabbatical from Tim after Tim.’ ” They launched the second episode of Photoshop and within five days, it had 400,000 page views. Digg dug the site, BoingBoing boinged it, and LaughingSquid inked the deal. A star was born.

…It’s Tuner Tuesday: Nelson Racing F-Bomb?

Nelson Racing F-Bomb

When you’re the Chief Editor of Hotrod Magazine, it’s not like you can just drive around in a Dodge Stratus.

However, the Nelson Racing “F-Bomb” 1973 Chevy Camaro that David Freiburger drives around might just take the opposite to the extreme.

Featuring a twin turbo, 406 cubic inch V8, it’s got 1540 HP and 1527 lb.ft. of torque on tap so that any time speed is an option, the go pedal is sure to provide plenty of it.

Besides the monster engine though, the car has also been caged and minitubbed for safety, and was stripped down to the bare metal before being powder coated with a fighter plane motif that I can’t get enough of.

F-Bomb indeed.

…Some Photoshop work is disasterous?

Photoshopped Disasters

With great power comes great responsibility, and unfortunately, the work of those featured on Photoshop Disasters severely lacks some of the former, and most of the latter.

The site is a collection of professionally Photoshopped images that skipped a round or two of quality control, because the end result is often a monstrous concoction of inhuman impossibilities that will make you question your day job. (Get paid to erase butt cracks from the covers of magazines? Sure!)

Sadly, these types of images fed the world a definition of literally unachievable beauty, so keep this site in mind the next time you find yourself saying “I wish I could look like that”.
