I am always fond of the porcelain which pretends itself to be a different object, namely the coke can I have introduced before. Plus I have plastic cups and cartons made of porcelain at my home.
I have been once fascinated by these "Guns n Roses" vases when I saw the real objects in shops. But think twice, I hate guns actually. No matter how powerful a gun is, it is not as appealing as the gun at crotch.
The delicate and elegant tea-set as an art work for displaying is another issue. The creator, Yvonne Lee Schultz as series of art works on the theme of gun which is as still as death which is ghastly and gruesome. I don’t need guns, show me another one instead.
Following the Evian Glacier Special Edition in 2007, the new limited version of Evian has two sets of design produced by the french fashion master, Christian Lacroix. The body of bottle transforms into a tremendously charming garment designed by Haute Couture, just alike a piece of gorgeous ecoration inside a palace. Only 99 bottles are avilable in auction for charity in which the initial price is 1000 US dollars, the business of the rich only. For those ordinary collectors, Prêt-à-Porter is the substitute which is a Ready to wear mass-produced product. The lovely fact is that only 10 US dollars can make a deal while the quality of glitter and limpidity is kept even in this design.

The design of paperclip has not been changed much since it was invented in Norway more than hundred years ago. One of the winners of the Design Award organised by the big brand in stationary,Kokuyo is known as "Number Clip" . The original shape of the paper clip is moulded into the shapes of number 0 to 9 and a function of
categorisation is complemented therefore.
The product made in Japan appropriates the design of papeclip as well. But an anchor is added to imitate the shape of clothes-hanger. It turns out to be a photo holder, slip hanger, postcards hanger,love-letter hanger and even a rack for suidice letter.Well, it can simply be a paperclip as you like. Simple creativity like this can be surprisingly amazing.
That series of plush toy into which transforms organs is not only terrifying but lovely. The beauty is changing the sloppy into dolls and visualising invisible diseases, bacteria, and micro-organisms as plush toy. They are really frighteningly cute.
Series of organs : I Heart Guts!
Series of pee & poo : Pee&Poo
Series of virus : Giant Plush Microbes
The coming album of Kylie Minogue also catches up the trend of USB stick. The USB Animating the Kylie Robotics style from the cover of the album"X" includes all 13 songs of the album and the documentary video of the trailer of "White Diamond" and the music video of the single "2 Hearts", and plus the booklet in the pdf format.
If the varieties and quantities can be like Gashapon(capsule toys), publishing albums in the way of USB stick is a feasible and potential business which the value appended is more than downloading mere mp3 , on the other hand it is more practical than CD, well, at least for me.
Today news from Hong Kong:17 arrested for selling “triad products”
“The police have arrested 17 people following the seizure of 88 T-shirts and several hundred postcards with the name 14-K printed on them. The products were taken away from outlets of the home accessories chain store – G.O.D. The police said those arrested, including the company’s owner and designer, are suspected of violating the Societies Ordinance. However, G.O.D’s marketing manager, Cherry Ma, said 14-K referred to gold – not the triad society. She said staff were shocked by what appeared to be coordinated raids on the company’s three stores and warehouse.”
Earlier there was a T-shirt with the slogan "Delay No More" which sounds like "Montherfuckers" in Cantonese, and now the same company G.O.D, has printed this Tee shirt with 14K in Chinese to make a trouble for themselves.
Honestly the design of the tee looks very ugly and undoubtly this is of very bad taste , however, do we have freedom of speech to express regardless its taste? And it’s funny to see how Hong Kong media react in the related photo on RTHK’s website in which the logo has been blurred to avoid showing the word "14K". Too many taboos in society may make people go crazy and lack of humour.
What if I adapt the tee from 14K to 24K, that’s ok! What if I make a tee to express my monthly income is 14K? What if my address is 14K?
My shiba inu is always sleep-talking. This afternoon, I finally have a chance to film it. Seeing him barking while sleeping and later stretching his body like what people do when wake up; I guess he is having a very sweet dream.
There are logos which are worse than the originals. However, the following logos need to be changed. They not only cannot bring up the original messages, but also cause people to think of something naughty.

With only a bit creativity, we can ameliorate idle plug connectors which become the focus of entire room. The following designs of different virtue are once plugged and show.
This not only a sidetable but a light designed by the student of Hongik University in Korea, Hwang Sung Pil is one of the iF Concept Award Product in 2007.
Another conceptual product is USB spigot from Germany. It’s fine to treat it as a statue in the light of the weird connection amongst all the components.
Don’t simply misunderstand it as an electronic product of virtual flame, Kerzenhaltding is the german word for “Candle Holder” which cannot be ignited by connecting to electricity but needs to be lit by fire instead.
I am lack of patience to watch an entire Music Video in most of the time, “Neon Bible” by The Arcade Fire for me is, however, an exception. An interactive MV with simple but delicate wits is far more concise than the original Glowing Edges. Mouse Motion and Mouse clicking trigger the morphing of pictures adapting to the mythical aura of the song, so amazing.
