A long while back I posted about Bordbar. They create designs on the airline carts that goes up and down the aircraft aisles around the world. Recently they have added to their collection. They are available for purchase if you can speak German. I’m not sure if they ship overseas however. I’ll let someone else investigate that.

This is a good site if you’re into world music…and they have a terrific logo. Part of me is in disbelief I haven’t heard about it yet. Calabash Music is a site dedicated to helping the world musicians and fund them without using major record labels. All I know, is I can listen to many artists and get free tunes every week. Here are a few of their freebies you can download at the time of this post.
Andre Bourgeois and Mano Bap – Pentagrama
Angelique Kidjo – Salala w/Peter Gabriel
Radial Mundial – Tambor

I must admit I’m torn between two worlds right now. I’ll explain later. Nike+ Human Race is attempting, and will in all likelihood succeed in creating the largest race in the world. Around the world, runners will be racing a 10K. You can participate by either registering and running in one of their select cities, I believe there are 4 in the states and numerous others in countries around the world, or you can use your nike+ ipod to run your own 10K then upload your time to their site.
Now, getting back to my issue of being torn. It is very very difficult to find fault with giving people a reason to go outside and exercise with enthusiasm, and I feel Nike has done that. Here’s the issue I have. I really don’t like the fact you have to have an ipod, computer, internet connection, and a trendy consumer sense to participate. Using a cliche, I suppose it’s just the world we live in. But something just doesn’t seem right to me when I picture myself running past a poor neighborhood (vision: children stop their street soccer game to stare at me) with my $150 ipod and $100 Nike shoes on. Maybe I should ignore what those children don’t have, and ‘just do it.’

WorldClockProject.org is an internet project that (briefly summarizing) takes pictures of clocks at different times of the day from around the world. Users upload their pictures on FlickR….they post them on the site…and you end up with a lot of pictures of clocks.
From them: “Because it’s great fun to look at pictures of clocks from around the world. And aside from telling us the time, these pictures of unfamiliar clocks take us to a different place and remind us of the vastness of the world.”
Kind of found this one a bit boring…like the thought of world clocks, but the majority of the pictures just aren’t that special. Either way, felt I should post about it.

Just found this and thought I would share it with you. Desktopography, “Nature’s Design on Your Desktop,” has some very nice images that about anyone will enjoy. Their artists basically do this for free and the images are all free. Currently their 4th Year Exhibition is now available to download…and they have plenty of sizes to fit your monitor. Maybe it’s time to finally replace Jessica Alba in chaps from Sin City.

If you have a spare $1800 laying around, then you might want to pick up one of these. Bordbar.de is reusing/reselling old beverage carts that have traveled up and down aircraft aisles for years. They have dents and scratches, but the designs are new. You can even design your own. I like any idea that involves design and recycling, but I don’t like the price. Seriously, who has that kind of money. Travellers and Backpackers don’t…I know that.

This step by step tutorial will show you how to make a rather abstract world map. The map can be made with simple tools and 2 sheets of matte board paper that is used for framing. Total cost of project is about $30. The map can be whatever size you’d like, but the one pictured above is about 40″ by 28″. To launch the tutorial, click here.
