I really don't like you!!!


I find everything in this picture disturbing.  Both Condoleezza Rice and EU Foreign Policy chief Javier Solana clearly don’t want to have anything to do with the other.

What do you think they are saying to themselves?

a thought that might not be “fur” everybody

No Fur For Me

I’m not saying these activists who protest the use of fur by covering themselves in red body paint don’t have a right to do so, but here’s my two cents…if you don’t think fur should be worn, don’t wear it!  I find it quite presumptuous for anyone to think that just because they’re not into something that no one else should be either.

And for all those who need to know…this is coming from someone who’s really not into wearing fur!

The Thinker’s Thoughts

One thing that will always be true about time is that it waits for no man.  It’s the only thing that we all have the same amount of everyday.  The only difference is what we individually choose to do with it.  Those who achieve any type of success always know the true value of their time.

So remember this little thought nugget my fellow thinkers…the longest job to finish is the job never started!

a very very very large creative expression

Wednesday, June 25th, 2008


This is crazy…and it was made by a single person!!!

Jim Denevan made the world’s largest freehand drawing on a dry lake in Nevada. How big is it? Three mile across, which took 100 miles of walking to draw the pattern.

“It is really really big. My first attempt at a place so large. I think it represents about seven or eight days of walking”, says Devevan.

Even though esthetically it’s a welcome addition to the landscape, it is also a sort of a transient mark-like a cloud, or a river-bed.  Immense in its scope, and lasting only a moment in the large scale of things. (more…)

I’m floored by this floor pattern designed by Spanish artist Juan Munoz at the Guggenheim Museum in Bilbao.   The love the way that when you look at a specific color from the bottom to top, the shapes tends to shift.

However, there’s some truth to be found in this product since we all have the power to define what’s in the bag to represent our dreams.

I’m not sure who created this ad, but I think it was an advertising company named Kaizen.

I thought it was really dope when I discovered that Kaizen is also the name of a Japanese philosophy that focuses on continuous improvement throughout all aspects of life.

These wooden bicycles can be found all over the world (I wonder why not so much in the United Sates). These handmade bikes are often larger-scale scooters that you sit on. Made with whatever wood can be found, they use small wooden home-made wheels covered with discarded rubber rims. Forward movement depends on the rider pushing with their feet. (more…)

when thoughts become reality!!!

Friday, June 20th, 2008

Why I do What I do

This message takes me back to when I first started writing my first book over four years ago.  I remember looking out my window in deep thought on what to do with the rest of my life.  I came to the conclusion that I was going to be in front of people utilizing my innate ablility to get people to think.

Many people told me that I was setting myself up for failure because the masses don’t want to think…they just want to be told what to do.  Obviously I’m not in agreement. I sincerely think the masses are MORE conditioned not to think, so my new mission in life became to spark all the dormant thinkers of the world.  I made that decision with the deep belief that I couldn’t be the only one who had grown tired of the “sugar water” mind sets that has become so status quo.

It’s the moments like these which make all the sacrifices worth it to me!!!

And before I end up getting all emotional, I’m going to end by saying to all…Thank You And You’re Welcome!

Heavenly Designed

Flogos are taking your marketing to the skies, and then some.  It’ll shape your logotype into a “cloudy” mixture of soap-based foam and helium – and send it off to drift for miles, as high as 6 kilometers up.

Any form can be made (of any color) and almost any specified location covered. The company seems to maintain that “flogo” shapes are environmentally friendly (they just evaporate after a while, and airplanes will fly through them like through any cloud.

a great example of the power of choice

Tuesday, June 17th, 2008

Doug Pray’s documentary “Surfwise” is the tale of two parents who raised their nine children in a 24-foot camper – an experience their daughter would later describe as “like weird monkeys in a small monkey cage.”

Dorian “Doc” Paskowitz and his wife, Juliette, both avid surfers and radical thinkers, lived as nomads for decades with their eight sons and one daughter. In a rattletrap camper, they crossed the U.S., eschewing schools and living off the grid. “I just wanted my kids around me, surfing with me, education be damned,” says Paskowitz.

Obama tells black fathers to step up…

Monday, June 16th, 2008

Obama and Dad

…even though I think the message applies to any and all dead beat dads.

Barack Obama celebrated Father’s Day by calling on black fathers, who he said are “missing from too many lives and too many homes,” to become active in raising their children.

“They have abandoned their responsibilities, acting like boys instead of men. And the foundations of our families are weaker because of it,” the Democratic presidential candidate said Sunday at a largely black church in his hometown.

Reminding the congregation of his firsthand experience growing up without a father, Obama said he was lucky to have loving grandparents who helped his mother. He got support, second chances and scholarships that helped him get an education. Obama’s father left when he was 2.

“A lot of children don’t get those chances. There is no margin for error in their lives,” said Obama, an Illinois senator.

“I resolved many years ago that it was my obligation to break the cycle — that if I could be anything in life, I would be a good father to my girls,” added Obama, whose daughters, Sasha and Malia, and his wife, Michelle, watched from the audience. (more…)

clearly the best designed toaster ever!!!

Clearly The Best Toaster

This transparent toaster allows you to see the bread while it is toasting so you’re never surprised by toast that comes out too dark. This idea is based on a transparent heating glass technology. Although the glass does not currently get hot enough to toast bread, the vendor explained with some R&D this application may be possible. The concept was developed by the Inventables Concept Studio.

I love when design is merged with innovation!!!

iPhone Killer!

This is a future cell phone concept developed at Inventables. The concept was inspired by the e-paper developed by Mag-Ink and the Popout Map. The map uses origami paper folding technique to expand and collapse automatically as it is opened and closed. This concept addresses the need for larger displays on cell phones without sacrificing a small form factor.

Power Shift

This is the world’s first solar-powered ferris wheel located at Pacific Park along the Santa Monica Pier in California.  Even with 160,000 lights, the new ferris wheel is 75 percent more energy efficient than the one it replaced.

Now would it be correct to assume that the corporate heads of the energy companies are fully aware of this shift and now are trying to get all they can before their time is up?

one of the best acceptance speeches that was not written by me!!!

Saturday, June 14th, 2008

I love how the Webby Awards forces all the recipents to think about what they’re going to say.  Instead of the typical “I want to first thank God” speeches, they limit the acceptance speeches to five words or less. 

I think this approach is much more interesting as well as entertaining because everybody is on edge to hear what will be said.

Talent! Skill! Discipline!

Most are born with some type of talent. Just think of how many people you know who have said “I have always been good at ______.�  Now think of how many people you know who are making a living from their talent.  Unfortunately, most don’t take the time to develop their talents into skills and even less of them become disciplined in it.  What good is it to take the time to develop a talent into a skill and never become disciplined enough to know the how/when/where/why to apply it to its fullest. 

Think about it: Professional sports are full of talented and skilled individuals, but how many CHAMPIONS does it have?

All My Politics!
by j. saKiya Sandifer

First let me say that I’ve never been into politics and that I have never followed or actively participated in any election of a government official to date.

And I am also not part of the uneducated demographic that certain media outlets pander too.  My lack of enthusiasm in American politics is nothing more than a well-thought decision that has absolutely nothing to do with my lack of understanding in the process.  I’ve always felt that politics has never had the intentions of serving the greater good of the masses and that a politician’s loyalty has and will always be to the highest bidder.

Now with that being said, this year’s primaries turned out to be completely different for me. My interest was peaked this past March when I just happen to see a clip of a debate while in the midst of my daily channel surfing ritual.

As I was captured by the intellect of Obama, I couldn’t help but notice how the various media outlets began to shape the Democratic primaries to play out as America’s hottest new soap opera. Being a recovering addict of All My Children circa the late 90’s, I know cleverly scripted drama when I see it.

With all of the decisive issues and/or story lines that gave this primary season its dramatic appeal, from the importance of race and gender, to being an elitist and thus being not relatable, to denouncing versus rejecting, to mis-speaking versus making shit up and so on…the one I felt had the greatest impact was being able to use the power of lowered expectations to one’s advantage. For Barack and Hillary equally had the “hey, it can’t get any worse” mindset working in their favor. And this is not said to marginalize the genius of anyone. I give both camps a lot credit for recognizing and then using it to their advantage.

I just kept wondering if this would’ve been such a close race ending with an Obama victory if there had been no war, if gas prices weren’t as high as a young Hollywood celebrity (feel free to pick one) or if people weren’t losing the homes they knew they couldn’t afford in the first place. When you really think about it, often we define what something is by what we’re comparing it to and not for what it actually is.

Mid season’s story line shifted to the media’s lame attempt to define the candidates and it seemed that Hillary was always behind the curve. The game had change and I don’t think she read the memo. In a way I began to feel sorry for her. It got to the point where it seemed that she was getting her cues from the George character from Seinfeld. You know when you are totally in wrong but you say something so ridiculous, it deflects from the point.

Now fast forward to the end of the first season’s cliff hanger…”the first African-American presidential nominee.” The build up was incredible! Make no mistakes about it; Obama is a phenomenal forward thinker. He has shown a keen understanding that America has been in a daze from operating in a constant state of fear. He crafted a message that only he could deliver of actually uniting the states. Wow, this really does reads likes a daytime soap opera!

Now I say all of that to make the point…just because there is a new, exciting actor in the show…it’s still the same show! The show format will always remain the same; whoever draws in the most money gets top billing. The message of “change” wouldn’t seem so heavenly sent if it wasn’t backed up with an economic based that raised over $200 million.

And again I must emphasize that I have no intentions in taking anything away from what Obama has accomplished, for it should be commended and sought to be duplicated.

For me, this whole process is best summed by a quote by Greek philosopher Plutarch…”Nothing is harder to direct than a man in prosperity; nothing more easily managed that one is adversity.

“The critical ingredient is getting off your butt and doing something.  It’s as simple as that.  A lot of people have ideas, but there are few who decide to do something about them now.  Not tomorrow.  Not next week. But today.  The true entrepreneur is a doer, not a dreamer.”

Thinking Man Year!!!

Could this be the sign that we as a country are ready to “turn the page” and embrace intellects in politics?  Not saying that others aren’t or haven’t been intelligent, but I’ve never seen anyone else base their campaign on it.  And just to think at one time the media (MSNBC’s Morning Joe) was defining being an intellect in politics as a weakness…WOW!!! 

This is a perfect lesson of someone knowing their worth and not allowing outside forces to define them.  Imagine if this way of thinking was to catch on…better yet, how about everyone who reads this adopting this way of thinking.  Don’t waiver on this one…once truly embraced, your life will change forever!!! 

And I’m sure to no one’s surprise…I really really really believe that the thinking man will always prevail!!!

Special Message To Obama Supporters: THE JOURNEY IS NOT OVER!!!  Although I’ve never been a part of an Obama strategy meeting, I’m quite confident that his goal wasn’t just to become a nominee, but to become PRESIDENT!!!  You guys still have alot of work to do.  Don’t get caught up in a strong sense of entitlement…you see how that approach worked out for Hillary!!!
