So I've Scooby fan for as long as I've been a comic fan, from time to time I catch up on all things Scooby, like there's a new series on Cartoon Network called "Scooby-Doo! Mystery Incorporated", where (get this) Shaggy and Velma are going steady! Crazy. Anyway, also in my geeky way I checked out some of their movies, there's another live action one where its a prequel on how they all met, its lame but the guy who plays Shaggy is cute (22 year old legal) eye candy, if you get past the "shaggy" voice attempt. But I digress, the point of this post it to show you this really awesome animated intro to one of the Scooby movies, its quirky illustrated style and nice quick mini-story plot is presented well against a folkish 60's music background (Dug the dance scene)

(Unfortunatly imbedding is not available so you'll have to watch it on Youtube.)

Crisp Design

I sense a movement stirring from the North, the winds of change are coming and riding them is Filtered Design. Of course its not an actual name for a branch of design but its a term I've given to any packaging, layout, art piece or bus stop sign, that have done away with collages of WHAM BAM slogans and rainbow on steroids coloured imagery.

I'll give you an example:

This by far, stood out from all the other crisp packaging on the shelves and check out how they dealt with the variants:

and look at this breath of fresh air from a least expected place, retro inspired packaging General Mills went through last year:

If any of you guys have any other examples I would looooove to see...

Why didn't you call me??

Dear Diary

Why don’t you ever reply to me? I have a feeling this is a one-sided relationship, do you get a kick out of my misery and pain? I can just see it now, you reading out my woes to your friends while smoking joints and watching porn. Does it make you happy knowing that I’m not going through life all breezy, care free and full of sparkle. You know what you can go and screw yourself really. I might as well pay a hooker coz A: I wouldn’t waste time forming complete sentences with structure and accurate spelling and B: I get something out of it.

So “Diary” go do whatever it is you do, which is lay in someone’s underwear draw being used only for the sole purpose of other people puking their lives into your insides. While you lay there taking it like the bitch you are. Ha ha ha.

Phew that makes me feel a lot better. Thanx for the vent


Dear Matthew

F%^&* YOU!!!
