How do you like your Morning Coffee?

28 11 2007

Don’t you just hate trying to remember all the sites you want to look at in the morning? I know I do. Even though I keep myself organised with a start page at netvibes, I found another way to organise my tabs. It’s a firefox addon called Morning Coffee.

All I have to do is select the site I want by clicking on the arrow next to the coffee cup in the toolbar and select which day I want to load that webpage or I can choose to see that webpage everyday.

It keeps me organised. Let me know what you think of it.


Love at first sight on the Subway

21 11 2007

For this post I thought would share what I found out about a guy called Patrick Moberg and how one day he was on the subway and fell in love with a girl. She got off the train before he could talk to her. He couldn’t get her out of his mind so he made a website called hoping to find her again. Finally a friend of hers found out about the site and told the mystery girl – Camille Hayton an Australian intern for BlackBook magazine. They finally met and for more information you can watch the video found on youtube.

Recently I read in the Daily Telegraph that they might make a movie about the couple. I don’t know if the movie is a rumour but personally I think that they should probably work on their relationship before they make a movie. They have only known each other for about a few weeks now. But hey they seem very intriguing and I love the story of how they meet so if a movie did come out I would like to see it.

How to Get Paid for your Flickr Photos

27 10 2007

How to Get Paid for your Flickr Photos I found this link to a post on the blog photopreneur which is a great site because it has great tips on how to make money from your images. Ideas that I wouldn’t have considered such as selling them on ebay. But the most important message from these posts is to network. Get to know other members on sites such as flickr, redbubble, or zooomr by commenting or joining groups or forums. After all that’s what these sites were meant to do.

Tim Storrier

23 10 2007

I recently went to Tim Storrier’s Exhibition which is currently at the Drill Hall Gallery. I loved the work. He is often known for his paintings but the exhibition displays only Storrier’s photographs.

Running Man II, 1985

His photographs were only seen as experimental works and not individual artworks. But in my opinion I really enjoyed them and I view them as individual artwork. I loved the metallic paper it really suited the work especially the photographs taken in Egypt. But most of all I love the Running Man series.

Don’t miss the exhibition it’s on till the 28th of October 2007.

Oh and you can check out Tim Storrier’s work on his website
