Those Poor Little Kitty Heads…

Whack-a-Kitty!!!

I just saw this video on YouTube and thought it was too cute not to post, so here it is!

I guess they created a website too, but I’m not going to link to it, because it looks like a bunch of affiliate spam and they don’t mention anything about donating to needy animals.

Enjoy the video!

Inspiration From the Most Artistic and Creative Resumes

Creative Resume
Times are tough and everybody and their mama are applying for the same job you’re trying to get.

So how the heck do you expect to get noticed?

Maybe you should just take a chance and try creating one of the most creative resumes you possibly can. That should get you noticed right?

Take a look at these 30 Artistic and Creative Resumes and see if you can put one of your own together.

I’d be very interested in hearing what the person hiring would think. 🙂

The Sound Effect Search Engine

I think there’s always going to be a time where you need to certain sound effect, whether it be for a website or some sort of multimedia project or you just wonder what a laughing hyena sounds like.

Soungle is an extremely simple to use search engine to find all sorts of royalty free sound effects. You can listen to the clips all on one page and you can choose to download it if you like it.

So far, on the few random searches I’ve done, I’ve found lots of great effects for each one. This one definitely goes in my bookmarks.

Dude, You Tweet Way Too Hard

Even if you’re not on Twitter, you’ll get a kick out this site. Basically, what Tweeting Too Hard does, is collect “self-important” tweets.

These can be from users who seem to think fairly highly of themselves or just think everyone in the world wants to know every single little detail about their lives.

Take for example;

“I make multi-million $ decisions on a regular basis — why is it soooo difficult to decide what to do with my hair?” from @MKReflections

“ok poop is coming out.” from @leto75

“OMG i was saying how i couldn’t afford the gas to fly daddy’s jet to the riviera this summer, and this barista totally rolled her eyes at me ” from @babesmcphee

“I love how some dudes hate me for dating their fantasy girl, as if they were going to if I hadn’t.” from @JohnCMayer

Ha ha! Check it out and submit your own if you’re following someone as much of a douche as John Mayer.

Very Creative Anti-Smoking Ads

The Smoking Effect

The only advertisements that I really see about anti-smoking anymore are adds from Truth, which are usually boring and seem to try too hard. I’m sure they do the job though.

But there are lots of ads out there that really take a creative turn. These are the ads that would stick in my mind if I saw them in a magazine.

Check out this article, Top 45 Creative Anti-Smoking Advertisements, and try to tell me you don’t enjoy the creativity behind each one of them.

Images That Look Photoshopped But Aren’t

real-photography

With photo manipulation software like Photoshop being used so often these days, it’s almost a “given” that an image has been altered. I rarely even wonder anymore and just assume that it is.

This is why I really like this post, Faux Photoshop: 15 Incredible Images That Look Altered but Aren’t. Phew, what a title 🙂 I guess it describes exactly what the article is about though.

Do you know of any other great photographers that don’t alter their work or that have a gallery with unaltered photography? I’d really like to see it.

Get More Energy That Lasts All Day

betsy-excited
I think everyone would like to feel more energized throughout the day. There are actually tons of things you can do to give yourself a boost and keep you feeling great all day long.

One thing you can do is listen to music while you work. Listening to music while your work will spark those pleasure centers of the brain and boost your productivity. I listen to music every day at work, and it makes me much more comfortable.

Another thing you can do is to move your gym workout to the mornings instead of after work. I can attest to this myself. I’ve tried to workout after work and it’s fine, but if you workout before work, you won’t believe how much energy you have throughout the day.

If you want to see more tips, check out this great post 55 Ways to Get More Energy, over at Zen Habits.

Naked Ladies Walking Down the Street Making a Music Video

The people who made the video below know how to keep you entertained. Naked ladies walking through the street with a little radio in the middle of the day sounds like an interesting idea.

Of course the naked lady bits are covered by little black boxes, so don’t worry, it might be ok to watch while at work. And the boxes display the lyrics of the song, so you can sing along too.

A New Online Marketplace for Original Print Design

inkd graphic design

Inkd is a Seattle based company which has created an all new marketplace for people who don’t have the time or energy to go through the creation process of a custom design.

Not only does this help the time-deficient buyers, but also the graphic designers who choose to sell their work on the site.

Graphic designers can find buyers on the site and sell them unused brand ideas and designs and registration on the site is free.

Just sign up, upload a brochure, business card or any other type of design you have, and then it’s up to the Inkd team to decide if your design is acceptable.

Each designer will receive at least a 20% royalty fee for each sale. Buyers can even hire designers for freelance work if they like.

This sounds like a great opportunity if you’re an artist looking for some extra cash or for a business who doesn’t have time for a design consultation and the creation process.
