Honda - Live Every Litre Project Premier July 21

Everybody has a "dream travel destination" or a journey he has always wanted to do.

Honda has made this dream possible for 13 people from all around the globe who they found with the help of the internet. They have made a documentary about it and TOMORROW will be the exclusive online premier.

I liked the teaser a lot and will try to watch the movie tomorrow at 9 PM German time on July 21.

Claudio von Planta is the regisseur and has managed to not put to much attention on the actual product, the Honda CR-Z.

What would you do, if you would had the car and an open road?

The new trailer for the David Fincher-directed film about FACEBOOK!!!

Couldnt believe something like this is coming out soon. Nobody would expect a movie about the German Facebook "StudiVZ".

Mark Zuckerberg created Facebook in 2004 at Harvard during his sophomore year.

All the words in the video are possible movie titles.

Turf Dancing in the rain!

Those guys are dope. Its like a pop up store, just pop up dance. On the Street. In the rain.
The beat is by Erk Tha Jerk.
This Motion Art is off the hook, R.E.S.P.E.C.T.

Best moment for me: around 1.30, when he suddenly speeds up and slows back down!

DIY Roll Up Backgammon

What should you do with your spare time in the summer?

I am gonna try to gather some felt or cloth and some retro Backgammon tokens.

What you need?

-felt, cloth or leather
-a scissor
-some cloth glue and little little craft skills plus a little creativity

Hope to get your creative minds going. I Hope it might look a little like the one below when I am finished. Its available on MATT SINGER's website for as little as 165$. I prefer to spend 10 € on cloth or felt and have a good time putting it together. I think I am going to try some fency colors...
I might add a TZ logo on the tokens as well...

TZ loves wood shelves

I love wood shelves. They need to be simple and rustic for my taste.

The shelve above is from Holzwerk-A, a manufacturer based in Goettingen Germany.

But what do you do, if you cant afford a custom made piece of furniture?

Just ask your local fruit and vegetable shopman for old woodden cases, check out grandma's attic or browse your favourite online auction website.

Its simple as that. Use just one as a nightstand or several as a whole shelve for your favourite books and records.

A little story might show you how easy it is to be successful with such simple ideas:

In 2006, the designer Jasper Morrison was asked to design a night stand. After testing several ideas, he discovered that the old wine case/box, which was sitting next to his bed was defying all competition. Basically he reproduced the box with high quality wood and was selling it under the name "The Crate".

Rethinking what is given. Simple and smart and easy to reproduce at home with just a single old case/box.

source of pictures: Stilsucht, hyggelig , Jasper Morrison

have seen the wonderful idea of an old box nightstand in the great book "Mach neu aus alt" by H. Thompson with illustrations from N. Whittington

Consumers sue Apple because of new iPhone

I Love apple products. I really do.
I just bought my first Mac in May. I have an iPhone since February, but can use it since last week ( bought it with the newest firmware which was unlockable) and I have an iPod ever since.

But i dont like products with major bugs. A little while ago I had to analyse a tool used at work since the employees where not using the tool. I noticed my co-workers had discovered several bugs, which falsified the results coming out of the tool.

I somehow felt like this when a friend of mine told me about his problems with his iPhone 4. He is a lefty and the connection when calling, not just once, got disturbed when holding the phone. By now the whole internet community knows that the phone has some problems getting a signal when holding the phone with your bare hands.

But now it went a step further: Consumers sue Apple in the US state Maryland due to reception difficulties. But Apple has already issued an open letter to the iPhone users, revealing that the formula used to calculate bars of signal strength is inaccurate.

Summing up, a free software fix will come shortly.

If there is anyone out there, like an antenna engineer who can help fixing the problem, have a look on the apple website. They are currently looking for your skills :)

Poster on a Ice Cream Wood Stick by Allan Peters

Since I also love print and any kind of good design, this got my attention immediatelly.
If somebody on the streets would hand me that "flyer" or brochure it would have my attention and I would be eager to know whats behind it.

Great advertisement idea! I'll pick this up and bring this to Berlin I promise!

Old Spice Clip "Questions" and "I'm on a horse"

What would you say about a real good body wash commercial?
Not existing? Tired of all those AXE effect commercials on TV?

I got something for you which is smart, funny and full of scene change effects.

Its great and entertaining.

"Look at your men, now look back at me, now look at you men, now look back at me, I am on a horse!"

By the way, the guy in the commercial was a pro football player, named Isaiah Mustafa
