Ambient Mouse Art App (not the rodent)

Posted in accidental art, art and design, neato with tags , , , , , on February 9, 2010 by absurddelight

That’s a map of mouse activity. Using a new data mining app (for Mac or PC) you can see all the movements you’ve made with your mouse.

via Flowing Data (they have links to the the artistically inclined programmer and to get the apps) (also a nice mouse tracking image over photoshop).

Exploding Snow Man in Slow Motion

Posted in accidental art, neato, stunts, videos with tags , , , on June 19, 2009 by absurddelight

In honor of the dawn of summer, here’s a video of an exploding snow man … in SUPER SLOW MOTION.

For all sorts of things in Super Slow Motion go here.

It’s a pretty thorough compilation actually, with gunshots, insects, water and even 3D videos in super slow motion. We recommend the explosions of course.


@absurddelight, cause why not?

From Baldness to Boldness

Posted in accidental art, business, science with tags , , , on June 16, 2009 by absurddelight

Going bald is a drag. And until the big pharma companies muster the resources away from impotence towards hairline recessions, shiney headed men will just have to endure hats and hokey schemes.

And here’s a doozy.

Who exactly is the target audience for this ad?

Tattoo that hairline back into the the crisp fresh-from-the-barber eye catcher it used to be. Convenient and classy, all at once. Details, contact info, and close-up pic below.

THE Infotainer says Your Business Card is Crap

Posted in accidental art, business, videos with tags , , , on May 8, 2009 by absurddelight

If you think the Snuggie folks or Fred and Sharon have mastered the art of low budget video captivation, we would like to introduce you to Joel Bauer.

He calls himself the infotainer and has actually parlayed his “cheerful megalomania” into an apparently lucrative speaking business (he’s the guy hired to man corporate booths at conferences). Watch as he tells you your business card is crap.

His business card is the best he’s ever seen, costs only $4 a card. It’s kind of like a pop up children’s book crossed with a self-portrait. Also it’s obnoxious. Links and genuine mainstream press response after the jump. Continue reading

Ridiculous Business Cards

Posted in accidental art, funny, neato, videos with tags , , , on May 7, 2009 by absurddelight

We sure hope this is real.

THESE business cards have two ingredients: MEAT AND LASERS.

"THESE business cards have two ingredients: MEAT AND LASERS."

Meet  the Meat Card. Good for networking and snacking, also offending vegetarians.

MEAT CARDS do not fit in a Rolodex, because their deliciousness CANNOT BE CONTAINED in a Rolodex …Unlike other business cards, MEAT CARDS will retain value after the econopocalypse. Hoard and barter your calorie-rich, life-sustaining cards.

Buy them here. Or leave a comment on what you think of promoting your business through beef jerky.

Below are some other absurd business card moments and ideas to get your self-promotional juices flowing.

A New Way to Make Spaghetti

Posted in accidental art, neato, WTF with tags , , on April 24, 2009 by absurddelight

Is this food art, a gross meal, or both?  Would you eat it? And are you supposed to eat food art anyway? Maybe the beauty is in the taste alone… bleh.

Take dried spaghetti, jam into hot dog and boil.

Take dried spaghetti, jam into hot dog and boil.

Ketchup? Mustard?

Anyway, there’s more, with colored spaghetti and full sized wieners. I admire the creativity here. Continue reading

Funny Signs – Cont’d

Posted in accidental art, funny, things i like with tags on April 7, 2009 by absurddelight

Self-reference is always a winner. Especially when it involves utter pointlessness. The bare location is just a bonus.


PS – who cares if photoshop was involved!

Guess What It Is?

Accidental Art: Fred and Sharon

Posted in accidental art, funny, videos, WTF with tags , on March 9, 2009 by absurddelight

I love Fred and Sharon movies. Their pacing and pure unpredictability keeps me captivated, nearly stunned. Especially this one, presumably an actual ad for a real aspiring director.

For some reason there is a mad scientist scene, a random health care related chase, twirling and flying animation and a macing followed by hugging.

This is what happens when you mash honestly creative ideas with complete technical ineptitude, then banish any and all self-criticism (or quality control). Who would have thought doing a stand-up in front of a green screen of yourself behind you would work so well?

Kudos to Fred and Sharon!
