Well, now you can cover all of your favorite websites with oil with Instant Oil Spill, brought to you by A Cleaner Future.

Ra Ra Riot Fall 2010 Tour

Posted in Lawrence, Music by Megan Do on June 28, 2010

To promote the release of their sophomore album, The Orchard (Barsuk) on August 24, Ra Ra Riot has announced a fall tour. No need to worry, Lawrencians–they plan on adding a show in Lawrence somewhere between 10/8 Omaha and 10/11 Denver.

As many of you already know, I hold RRR near and dear to my heart. I’ve been a fan since the beginning and have seen them perform in Lawrence every year I’ve been at school. Graduating without seeing RRR in Lawrence for the last time just wouldn’t feel right.

Tommy Ton Street Style

Posted in Fashion by Megan Do on June 23, 2010

Lately, I’ve been obsessed with Tommy Ton’s street style photos at GQ. He has photos from all over the world but his recent photos from Milan are my favorites. With Cannes Lions and European Fashion Week going on at the same time, there are loads of attractive, well-dressed people walking the streets of Europe and it’s his job to capture their unique style. This is his freakin’ job–traveling the world and taking pictures of good looking people.

Write a handwritten letter on your computer!

Posted in Advertising, Social Media, Websites by Megan Do on June 17, 2010

It never ceases to amaze me how interactive advertising is getting and just by using a webcam! Last week, I wrote about Crispin Porter+ Bogusky’s awesome banner ad for Kraft Macaroni and Cheese that can recognize your smile. Now, I bring you a web application that lets you write handwritten letters… using your computer.

Pilot (the only brand of pens I use) and Grey Group teamed up to bring us a genius web application that lets you capture your handwriting on your webcam, write e-mails “by hand,” and  publish messages on Facebook.

By using the template below and writing each letter out into its corresponding box and taking a snapshot of the template using your webcam, the application will generate a font using your handwriting. Isn’t that brilliant?
