…It’s Movie Monday: Another Cloud Reel?

Another Cloud Reel by Ben Wiggins shows the beauty that is hidden in the movement of clouds, as revealed by timelapse photography, and combines it with the natural beauty of San Francisco to create a stunning montage:

…It’s Things Thursday: TOMS Shoes?

TOMS Shoes

TOMS Shoes might be made of canvas and certified vegan, but they’re also much more than that: They’re the driving force behind a movement to give the world a decent pair of shoes.

That’s because for every pair of TOMS Shoes that you buy, they’ll give a pair of TOMS Shoes to a child in need. So far, this One For One plan has given over 140,000+ pairs of shoes to children, and in 2009 alone, they plan on giving away more than 300,000 pairs.

Don’t take my word for it though. Check out the video, give the site a look, and see if your next pair of shoes should do more than just make your feet look good.

…Circular Painting is beautiful?

Circular Painting

Fly on the Wall created this amazingly fantastic “Circular Painting” for the Discovery Channel, and it’s awe-inspiring to watch the artists bring the painting to life through movement and motion alone.

Artists include Bryan Devlin, Luis Tolosana, Warren Lewis, Ree Treweek, Daniel Ting Chong, Mike Morocco, Toyah Moon Humphreys, Paul Ressel and Josh Ginsburg, and you can actually see one artist’s style evolve into the next, which just adds another level of awesome onto this already impressive project.

Watch and enjoy:

…You need to support our poops?

Support Our Poops

Support Our Poops is a movement to draw attention to the fact that one in 17 people in this country will develop colorectal cancer at some point in their life. About half of those people will lose their life because of it. However, simple routine screenings can drastically improve your chances of beating colon cancer.

To help spread the word, these Support Our Poops stickers act as “poopaganda”, serving to remind people of the importance of their bowel movement.

Isn’t it time you joined the fight?

…movingMario makes the plumber real?

movingMario

Keith Lam’s movingMario is a fantastically classic art installation that takes the Mario experience and transfers virtual movement into real world experience.

Of course there’s an artsy explanation for everything, and he probably dives a bit deep into the symbolism of it all, but it’s hard to argue that the results aren’t cool:
