WW131: LINDI ORTEGA, BROSMIND, AND BETTER BOOK TITLES!

Welcome!
Let's get to it.....five glorious things that I DON't want you to miss!!!!!

1.) I know what you are thinking.....Rob, I do not waste enough of my time on the world wide interwebs.....can you show me something that will help spend time getting absolutely nothing accomplished? CHALLENGE ACCEPTED!!! I give you Tonematrix:
Useless? YES!
A solid waste of time....CHECK!
Enjoy this. (Thanks Deb)

2.) I heard this from a Facebook friend......and cannot stop playing it. LOVE her voice!
Now is the time to make a confession........it has taken me a long time to admit this.....
I love country music. That's right folks, I am coming out of the country closet!
As a country music fan, I am happy to share with you this Toronto grown gem of a singer.....
Lindi Ortega. here is a little wiki-bio:

Canadian singer-songwriter from Toronto, Ontario. Now living in Tennessee, her voice has been described as a blend of Dolly Parton, Johnny Cash, and Emmylou Harris. She spent nearly a decade as an independent artist in the Toronto music scene, releasing two albums and an EP in that time. She has been described as "Toronto's best kept secret" and nicknamed "Indie Lindi". Ortega toured extensively as a backup singer for Brandon Flowers, the lead singer of The Killers. She has been nominated for two Juno Awards. She also has a brand new album coming out in October!

Here are a couple songs:



Now...go to her website - or iTunes and get a little country in your life!!!

3.) Thanks to Cindy....and a bit of research (aka time wasting) I found this website.....Better Book Titles, once you see the names of these books....you will NEVER see the old names again without thinking....oh ya......that WAS a better title!! Please enjoy this SMALL snippet......

YOU WILL NOT REGRET IT!!!!


4.) This is weird...but WONDERFUL......

It's a unicorn covered in cute food!! The work of Spanish artists {and brothers} Juan and Alejandro Mingarro, aka Brosmind. Their Barcelona based studio is the hub for their very successful illustration company. Their wacky personal projects are the real treat though.



I also love the Brosmind WAGON. "a hilarious car covered with beanbags and powered by pedals. It was created for the collective exhibition ON! Handcrafted Digital Playgrounds, taking place at the Contemporary Arts Center of Cincinnati, Ohio (March-September 2013). 



All the visitors attending the exhibition are invited to drive it in order to tour the exhibition from a funny point of view. Technical support by Isaac Salom. Pillows manufactured by Woouf.

5.) Ridiculous. There. That's all I can say.
