Still a Student? Why Stop??

Monday, December 20th, 2010

I am sure that if you yourself are not in school you at least know of or have that one friend who seems to be a career student. This funny clip commiserates with those super seniors and is an ode to the individuals who are committed to a life of learning and never really leaving mom’s basement. Enjoy :-)

Stop-Motion, Insert Coin

Each of those sparkly little dots, yeah, a quarter! As in George Washington in profile, as in doesn’t get you much these days aside from a pack of Wrigley gum… I don’t know about you, but I find stop animation fascinating and amazing all at once. Add to that the retro video game world and you get a real winner. I love the conceptual play on the quarter as the medium juxtaposed to the subject of old school video gaming, simply delightful. Check out the clip below and prepare to be wowed!

CMY-Killa’ Schools You on Photoshop!

Wednesday, December 15th, 2010

Want to know how to get rid of red eye or spice up a church flier? Well look no further, this video has all the answers! Some of you may have heard of You Suck at Photoshop (YS@P), which by the way has a second season ready for the viewing? Well along those same lines, this “music video” is humorous and informative. A bit less helpful as a tutorial then YS@P, due to the rapid pace, though that does no stop this video from being a good laugh and well worth the time. College Humor certainly has done it again with this one! By the way, how awesome is the rapper name CMY-Killa’?? Check it out!!

Dolce and I-Wanna-My-Thigh-Back…

Tuesday, December 14th, 2010

Okay so this is Dolce and Gabbana, as in $30,000 for a handbag D&G… You would think when you are trying to market yourself as a super high end brand that you would not hire your five year old nephew to Photoshop the images that you are using in your newest perfume campaign. It is either that or this design genius failed high school anatomy class. Check out the placement of this anatomically unique scandalously clad female’s left leg (that would be her leg to your right)—see the enlarged image below to get a closer look. I must concede that the average person viewing this article not looking at dark space above this model’s leg, definitely not the eye catcher. That said, I am pretty sure that my intro to Photoshop students could do a better job with this image then this apparently overpaid and under skilled designer.

I always find these botched Photoshop jobs very amusing. If you have any real doozies that you know of or want to share, feel free to post them here.
