Artsy Farmers

Each year farmers in Aomori, Japan grow crop art from their rice fields. Every year they grow a different image and pattern. They plant purple and yellow leaved plants in certain areas to create the images. Some are grown skewed so it will appear normal at eye level. This beats crop circles any day! You can see more here.


In other news, The Kowloon Emperor has passed away recently. His last artwork lies beside him on his death bed. His work is being photographed and collected for display in Russia(?). I've researched his work and his life so it saddens me to see him pass. Even though he may be crazy, he was always popular with the residents of Kowloon and street artists of the world.

Siren Festival!

This year's Siren Festival was a disappointment compared to last years. There were little free swag, and not too many major bands. However there were some high points and good photo opportunities! I'm glad I saw We Are Scientists up close.

There's Simpsons fever going around! Now you can make your own Simpsons avatar on their movie website. They've really outdone themselves promoting the new movie. I just hope its going to be great with all this hype!

I recently bought a pair of bootleg Converses. They fit better and is a whole lot more comfortable than real Converses. They also cost half the price too! I've been working on adding a few touches here and there. Here's the progress:

While shopping for shoes I noticed the Converse Product(Red) campaign. I must say, that their new line of (Red) shoes are rather attractive. The way they use text all over their shoes is refreshing. Not many shoe companies use text for designs. Here are some of my favorites:
