Artist Brian Kane displays art in place of advertisements on billboards in his installation ‘Healing Tool‘, named after the Photoshop tool used to patch over landscape photographs.  He says ‘The goal is to provide a moment of temporary relief and unexpected beauty during the daily grind of commuting’.

Love this.

How to Be Happy (or at least less sad): A Creative Workbook

“This book cannot fix you, and it cannot make you happy. The good news is that no other book on the internet can either, but you already know that. Because you know, deep down, that no self-help book can make you happy. Just like you know, deep down, that you can. Maybe you haven’t discovered that yet, or maybe you’ve forgotten, but you know more than you think about your own happiness. This creative and practical book will help you draw, write, discover, and remember those things that make you feel happy…or at least less sad.”

Get happy or at least less sad here!

Magic

 

Magic is a text message based service that allows you to get whatever you want on demand with no hassle (as long as it’s not illegal of course!).

Magic has trained operators standing by 24/7 to answer all of your requests. You simply send them a text message, and they’ll get you what you want by ordering what you need from the appropriate service (e.g. DoorDash, Instacart, Postmates, etc.), and dealing with them for you so you just automatically get what you want, like magic

I’m impressed and I think Houdini would be as well.

DreamingWithJeff.Com

If you watched the Super Bowl last night then you probably saw this commercial. It made me laugh and then I was curious. So what was it all about?

Well, Jeff feels the world is filled with too many restless people in need of rest so with the help of Squarespace he made a new mini-site DreamingWithJeff.com and created his sleeping tapes album filled with intriguing sounds, noises and other things to help you get a good night’s rest.

100% of the retail price from each album sold goes directly to No Kid Hungry. So you’ll get a good night’s rest knowing that when you download the album, or pick up the LP or cassette, you’re helping end childhood hunger in America.

Catch some z’s and make a difference. Count me in.

Thanks Jeff and Squarespace!
