Photo Magic

My partner went back to school this semester to learn photography and photoshop. He made this picture of my cat for fun:

Kaoiro and Selifusen

How cute!

From the website:

“Kaoiro” (which means “facial expression” in Japanese)
is japanese emoticon stamp pretending to be the date stamp.

This stamp that mixing digital culture with a old style stationary
has 7 belts and around 20 symbols.

You can create real kaomoji (japanese emoticon) of 2000 or more
by combining them.

If you always have it ready on your desk at school or office,
you can share your emotion to your lover in real world with a secret . \ (^ о ^) /

(via Resourceful Design)

These are pretty awesome too:

A sticky note that is the maximum communication tool in the stationery field.
We gave these products a friendly design.

They are called “Selifusen”.

It dashes out from the world of the MANGA,
and invites you into their worlds.

Almost New Laptop

Spent the past few weeks gutting my 5-year-old laptop and turning it into a new one.

Got a new LCD screen to replace my old cracked screen, 4GB of RAM (up from 2GB), and 500GB hard drive (up from 160 GB).  Managed to find all the parts for less than $250 on eBay and Amazon, and watched lots of Youtube tutorials on upgrading computer parts. 


Finally, upgraded from Windows XP to Windows 8.  Hoping this lasts another four years!

Radishes Are Popping

The radishes are almost ready!

Some are already halfway out:

I told my grandma about it last night and she said, “what are you growing food for?  You can’t buy Korean radish at the store in America?”  I told her it’s expensive to buy a lot of them and it’s fun to grow too.  “That’s good,” she said.  Then I got a long lecture about how young people (referring to my mom’s generation) don’t know how to do anything anymore (like make their own chili paste).  Oh grandma. ❤

Btw, 2 cents per minute to make long distance calls on Google Voice and call quality is better than the phone line!

Cartoon Camera

Gizmodo just put out their list of ‘new essential apps.’  Just started messing around with Cartoon Camera and it’s kindof amazing.  Here is a shot of the mess in our house right now.

This is definitely not helping my growing phone addiction.

Hello Smartphone

Finally said goodbye to my old LG Shine.  When I showed it to the guy at the store, he laughed at me.  I think I was supposed to get an upgrade 3-4 years ago.

Since AT&T is coming out with a new phone, they cut the price on this one:

Hello smartphone!

I’m concerned about this thing becoming an electronic leash.  For now, I set it up so I don’t have to look at email, Facebook, or anything else unless I click the app.  Hope this all works out!
