Food for thought‘[...] do not think that good design can make a poor product good, whether the product be a machine, a building, a promotional brochure or a business man. But [...] good design can materially help make a good product reach its full potential. In short, [...] good design is good business.’

Fun video for Wheezer‘s song, The Greatest Man Who Ever Lived, featuring Warren Miller:

The song would be pretty much crap without the adrenaline oozing from Miller’s rides. But it did remind me of Wheezer’s funny video and song, Buddy Holly, directed by Spike Jonze (remember Daft Punk’s Da Funk?). This was the first video I saw on my new Windows 95 PC (it came on the CD), back in the days when Mortal Kombat 2 was the thing :))

These are the MSP, 2008 edition:

Just had a “ski-and-run” day in Predeal. Great day, in spite of the wetness of the snow. Drained me out though…

Evil cloud looming over Caraiman – brought the rain later in the evening :(


And it all started innocently like this:
