Just some random stuff from us

Things I didn't expect to see or hear...

Interesting tools:
CheckMyColours.com by Giovanni Scala is a tool for checking foreground and background color combinations of all DOM elements and determining if they provide sufficient contrast when viewed by someone having color deficits. All the tests are based on the algorithms suggested by the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C).

http://www.blyberg.net/card-generator/ Just what it says, you can generate your own cards for an old-fashioned library catalog.

http://www.distractionbeast.com/brainstormer.swf A random generator of off-beat combinations of words to get the creative juices going.

http://www.tiltshiftmaker.com/ Tilt shift makes miniature style photos from pictures of real-life scenes that are manipulated to look like model photographs. You upload your own photos here. Free. Play, have fun.


What artists feel like in the working world:

This especially goes out to my brother Steve and friend, Chad.

Places that inspire my creative juices or just make me smile:

http://www.freerice.com/ where for every answer you get right, they donate 10 grains of rice through the UN World Food Program to help end hunger. Catagories are vocabulary (in 5 languages) English grammer, Art, Chemistry, Math, and Geography
http://www.awkwardfamilyphotos.com/ pretty much sums it up.

http://www.notcot.org/ ideas aesthetics and amusement

http://www.designspongeonline.com/ great ideas and "upcycling".

http://www.threadless.com/ Be nude no more! Greatest t-shirt place online.

http://www.tajtunes.com/ Singing telegrams...er...phone calls from India! Songs sung live to loved ones. Only $5! Gee, cards cost that much! Leaves everyone we know speachless! "Outsourcing never sounded so good"

http://www.biblegateway.com/ I use this to listen to the bible, cuz I'm just not a reader!

Happy Independence Day, America.
