…The Hive finds beauty in the ordinary?

The Hive

Kyle Cassidy gave twenty-three people scattered around the U.S. cameras and told them to wear them everywhere. Then, over a 48-hour period, he sent out eleven text messages to the group asking them to take a picture of whatever happened to be in front of them at the time.

The result is The Hive, a collection of “the quiet, unknown moments that make up our lives”, and a unique and interesting look into the otherwise bland and banal moments that we fill our days with. Take them as a whole and with a bit of structure attached however, and those moments begin to turn into something that’s bold, beautiful and uniquely interesting.

…It’s Website Wednesday: Umbrella Today?

Umbrella Today?

Umbrella Today? is a fantastically simple webapp that does one thing only but it does it well: Tell you if you need to bring along your umbrella for the day.

To use it, simply type in your zip code. Then, the site will either tell you, Yes, it’s going to be an umbrella day, or No, you’re safe for now.

However, Umbrella Today? is not just a one trick pony. If you give it your cell number and a preferred time, Umbrella Today? will send you a text message on days that it decides you need to bring an umbrella according to their weather report.

Ella, ella, eh eh eh.

…It’s Things Thursday: Other People’s Love Letters?

Other People’s Love Letters

Other People’s Love Letters is a collection of things you were never meant to see.

Fevered notes scribbled on napkins after first dates.

Titillating text messages.

It’s-not-you-it’s-me relationship-enders.

A heaping helpful of honest missives full of lust, provocation, guilt, and vulnerability-written for a lover’s eyes only.

In the style of PostSecret, Other People’s Love Letters is filled with found messages and lost notes, and provides a look into another life; a behind the scenes glance into another world that is often not unlike your own.

Give it as a gift, or keep it for yourself, but be sure to see what OPLL is all about, because love is a terrible thing to waste.
